Pleated Full Dress with Off-Shoulder Detail

I had been wanting to visit this beautiful beach with the Seven Sisters Chalk Cliffs as a backdrop for a long time now but the idea had always just been something at the back of my head, something I'll do...'one day'. Well, it never happened during the time I lived in London so when I was back last month, I called up Faiyaz and off we went, with a rented zip-car. Just 2 and a half hours away from London, not far off Brighton is the beautiful chalk cliffs, it's one of the most serene places I've visited. We spent a good 5 hours there, taking too many pictures, taking it all in, having the entire beach to ourselves before we realised how much time had actually passed. The cliffs are located about a 30 minute trek from the visitor centre so it was no easy feat getting there with bags of dresses I decided to shoot. I can't thank Faiyaz enough for driving me here and back, another one off the bucket list! Coming this far is a great way to spend a day away from the city, and run in a field of sheep, scream at wild rabbits and just be a country bumpkin so I'd highly recommend this to anyone visiting London. I'd do this all over again, and maybe spend a night in Brighton the next time. It was such a fun day- thank you Fai!

Wearing everything Self-Portrait. If you've not heard of the brand, now you know. There are no words for the beautiful pieces Han creates and it was a privilege to have worn these for our little adventure! I always get so many compliments whenever I am anything Self-Portrait! Han has become someone very dear to me and as cliche as it sounds, I have huge admiration for the guy. Thanks for always making me laugh, and for challenging me to get out of my comfort zone. If it wasn't for you, I would never have travelled so far!
