Here's my past month in photos, via my instagram @swiczeniuk!
Top Left, Right - For the past month we've been DJing almost every Saturday (and some Fridays!) at Cahoots, the new 1940's themed bar in Soho. So a lot of my outfits have been as vintage-esque as I can manage! This last Saturday I wore a vintage kimono with a waspie to turn it into a dress.
Bottom left - A gold and green look for Cahoots.
Bottom Right - I went out in day drag to model for the wonderful Reinka, shot by Al Overdrive, assisted by Bonnie and Ed. I can't wait to see the final results!
Top Left - I've been coveting these American Duchess shoes for a while, and my parents kindly bought me them for my birthday! I don't really wear heels, so these are just the right height for me, and I love the beaded embroidery. Super comfy too!
Top Right - Got a new wig, took it for a spin at Cahoots! Not pictured are the awesome swing trousers with braces that I snapped up in the Collectif sale.
Bottom left - I turned 26 on the 13th of March and had a wonderful day out with Miss Miranda and then a small gathering of friends at a bar. Understandably, I can't remember much after a certain point in the night ;)
Bottom Right - Feeding my Fannibalism! I just had to order the two Hannibal prints that Fyodor Pavlov has for sale. I need to get them framed and somehow fix them to a wall, but it's difficult when renting flats :(
3 different looks for Cahoots! For the first I was going for a kind of Spanish vintage vibe, the second a Dior 1950's look and the last was my Marlene Dietrich look, which probably isn't at all accurate but hopefully gets the idea across ;)
Top Left, Right- I LOVE this sparkly red dress! Another look for Cahoots.
Bottom left - I had a hankering for a sparkly gold eyepatch, and the wonderful Liv Free delivered! I need to go somewhere suitable for a sparkly eyepatch, that also doesn't matter about stumbling into people...
Bottom Right - My gorgeous chap (look at his new haircut!!) took me out for dinner at Century Club.
Top Left - I'm not sure how I missed this out of my last monthly post, but we headed back to Istanbul for a wonderful Valentine's Day gig at a Time Out Istanbul party. Had such a great time, albiet a shorter stay than last time. It was nice to meet Swing Zazou, an electro swing band from the UK, who were also performing. Here's Mark showing off the fabulous hotel room swooning chair.
Top Right - My look for the night! Red and gold and sparkly, because that's as Valentines-y as I can get!
Bottom left, right - Managed to get a little bit of sight-seeing in at Topkapi Palace, which was closed last time we were in the city. The Harem was my favourite part, I loved the mix of East and West influences in the decor.
Top Left, right - I can wear pink! As long as it's contrasted with feathers and Nicole De Carle....
Bottom left, right - My look for DJing at Rumpus, which had a Revolution theme, so I dug out a military-esque look! And tried something different with my eye makeup.
