Consoling myself with Chichia London





After yesterdays post about ASOS Africa which got me quite excited, I was a bit disappointed to find that the very gorgeous blazers that were causing a considerable wobble on my shopping ban, were completely sold out (or at least not available on the site at the moment). I really loved the bold bright African inspired prints but in the absence have been driven on to exploring other possibilities. Perhaps a blessing in disguise as I came across another very desireable source of African inspired prints, at Chichia London.

The label which was founded by Christine Mhando has some really original pieces in the most amazing colourful prints. I love her idea of keeping things fresh without being too trend driven, this just about sums up what I want from my clothes (along with lots of busy colours and patterns). Christine was born in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and raised in London, so the collections take inspiration from both continents and she transforms them into very beautiful and wearable clothes.

Chichia London is available online at The Look Boutique but please don't buy it all up before I finish my shopping ban.

I really like the prints too! So fun but I need to stay away from ASOS, far too tempting!

Oh my goodness, these are so perfect! I love these types of fabrics, and some of the structure is amazing! I am so so tempted by the purple dress... I'm going to post about this too if you don't mind, because everyone needs to know!
