Hi friends! I’d like to extend a warm, warm welcome to my new blog @ www.kisforkani.com. If you happen to have a different bookmark saved, be sure to update it with this domain :-) I have decided to leave FELLT network and am excited for what lies ahead. After deciding I couldn’t afford a website developer just yet, I spent countless days and nights drafting designs and brushing up on my coding skills. In the end, I came up with this! And might I say, I can’t wait to start a new chapter of K is for Kani on this slice of the world wide web. Hope you all like the design. To kick it off, this is the debut post!

Today, I caught up with a couple of friends over lunch and spent the evening shopping for Christmas presents. I was looking for something that was comfy enough to wear for long drives in the car, cool enough for the daytime outdoors and yet warm enough to roam through the air conditioned shopping centre at night. After much deliberation, I came up with this. An outfit which got me reasonably excited as practically everything I wore was vintage, which I find quite funny but not at all surprising since I have so much of it in my wardrobe. I’ve had this silk shirt in my wardrobe for ages and this skirt was one of the first vintage pieces I had ever owned. It had never crossed my mind to pair the two together however yesterday, whilst shopping online, I was busy planning an outfit in my head for European Winter which consisted of a navy jumper and green floral skirt. Funnily enough, that inspired my outfit today and was what made me want to pair green and navy together. These shoes were bought from the market recently and were a major impulse buy. I just needed sandals for Summer and have been wearing these most days ever since. Don’t you just love when that happens? Exit cognitive dissonance, enter instant satisfaction!

Recently, I have been so busy working in my Etsy studio and running (and flying) around for blog work. I even hosted a fashion show, Fair Fashion @ Federation Square last week – something I didn’t know I had the ability to do until I finished! I just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone’s support this year and in particular, thank you everyone for your lovely words and emails on the Peppermint magazine cover-shoot. You guys, my readers are most wonderful and I can’t wait to have you on the journey ahead :-)

Have a happy weekend!
