Anyway, so I started to sketch a few pictures that resembled something a grade 2 child might draw, complete with scribbled notes next to each picture. Needless to say I was totally embarrassed to show anyone but I put aside me pride and sent them the pictures.
They chose 2 designs from my rough sketches and turned them into B&S pieces. The pieces are not exactly how I imagined them but they are still so pretty and demand attention.
I am styling the Green Batik Long Top which is a beautiful emerald green shade with a batik top half. Keep reading this post for more outfit details.
The necklace and ring are from Wandering Nomad - go check them out for ethnic style jewellery.
Brew & Skittles specialise in using Batik fabric in nearly all their designs. These fabrics are hand picked by the company and incorporated into their funky style.
The batik top half has a multitude of colours so it is easy to match a hijab to it if you do not like wearing black.
The Green Batik Long Top is more like a kimono style jacket/dress that can be worn buttoned up or open.
The vibrant colours are simply stunning and look so special paired with all black.
I love the way the emerald green is peeking out from under the leather jacket. Such a stark slash of colour.
I layered up for this look with black peg-legs, a black longline shirt, the B&S long batik too and a tough looking leather jacket. I love mixing girly with more serious pieces.
Note: the pieces are designed by me but every other aspect about the pieces were chosen by B&S such as fabric, sizing and button accessories.
