DOLL HOUSE: An Exhibition by Hattie Stewart at KK OUTLET Hoxton Square

The one aspect of blogging that I'm very thankful for is meeting like-minded people who may not blog about the same topics, but have the same purpose of sharing thoughts and finds that we may otherwise not come across mainstream news platforms. 

Kizzy Doll of  The Dainty Dolls House is one of them. She's all pinks and purples, unicorns and glitters, quirky and animated. She's bubblegum pink, and hearts and dainty bows. She's most things I'm not, but some things I love (we're both into fashion, albeit different genres, but both drawn into the unconventional). I sometimes wonder how people can be perky and chirpy at all times; she does it in the most colourful fashion.

One of the virtual friends and supporters I've made on blogosphere, I didn't think twice about offering to pop into an exhibit in East London which she would have loved to see had she been able to come down from Scotland. 

Via Instagram, I came to know about Hattie Stewart and her works through Kizzy. On behalf of my lovely blogger friend, come and take a look at Hattie Stewart's premiere London solo exhibition, Doll House. Described as attention-grabbingly flirtatious, some of the East London-based ace illustrator's previously unseen works are on display. Customised leather jackets, neon signages, holograms, and magazine front covers are also on show. Her signature doodles are also her cheeky take on the media's blatant manipulation of female role models.

A reminder under each jacket: (Please & ta) look but don't touch yeah!

My wardrobe staple: a cool leather jacket. I'm currently on the lookout for a new one and would happily grab one of these if budget's no object. In the meantime, I'll stick to the classic while I drool over these.
