Outfit post for Thrift Inspiration-Yayoi Kusama style!!

Hi everyone!!! It is well documented that Louis Vuitton's latest artistic collaberation is with Yayoi Kusama who is an 82 year old Japanese artist obsessed with polka dots and has produced a really awesome collection including leather bags, shoes, accessories and jewellery.

Her exhibition is currently showing in New York:




I was suitably inspired to wear my H&M and Comme des Garcons collab shirt that I thrifted last year in my local Salvation Army. As we are having such in-between weather it's the perfect layering piece over vest tees when a jacket is not required:

I am also wearing my thrifted J Brand Earhart khaki crops which were just £2 from a neighbouring towns Sense charity shop. My navy and white floral pumps are from Primark, £4.


And for all of you who remember me with long hair, it's all now cropped off!!!


Whats your thoughts on polka dots-do you like the large or little variety-do you actually like them at all??

I lobe polka dots, big, small and of all colours... I could see how someone could become obsessed with them. I love your new hair, its very stylish. X

Love Kusama and adore your shirt, too. I haven't many polka dots in my wardrobe but what I do have I love. Your new hair really suits you. xxx

You've managed a masterclass in not making polka dots look twee so for that I salute you! And J Brand for £2? You are good at finding the designer pieces cheap as chips.

Your hair looks great, suits you.x

Your hair looks really really lovely!!! I noticed straight away! Do you know, I am SURE I saw that shirt in the Sally army!! Really, it seems familiar!!!
I ADORE polka dots! They've got a really nice rose and polka dot dress in the shop at the moment, I noticed it as I went past on the bus on my way to the Post delivery office!

Love the hair.

Did you go to her South Bank exhibition a couple of years back? It was great!

You look so super cute! I love polka dots any size! The more polka dots the merrier.

I saw the show in London right before I met up with you! I got her autobiography. Looking forward to reading it.

I love polka dots - large and small (though I don't own any polka-dotted pieces myself, now that I think about it).

And your hair! The sweetest ever! What a change. Was it a little traumatic, getting it cut?
