Personal Style: MotelxGraceNuetral Collab

Motel Grace Neutral
Collaborations are great aren’t they?  Brands/people/companies creating awesome pieces together. Its even better when you are bat shit crazy for both parties involved in the collaboration. Cue Motel and Grace Neutral. 
Now if you’ve been reading my blog for a little while now, or know me in person, you would know I am all about Motel. You can’t swing a fluffy bag in my wardrobe without knocking into something Motel. I fan girl over tattooists like I would a celebrity, I am most of the time just in awe of their creativity and pure talent. Grace is no exception, she’s a super kwel pixie that hands pokes the raddest tattoos onto peoples skin. She does the sickest Ghibli tattoos ever for crying out loud why would I not love her? So obviously when I got wind one of my most favourite tattooist ever were going to do a collab thang with Motel, all the palpitations started and I simply needed to see the collection there and then and was ready to throw all my money at all of it. 
Thennnn I remembered i’m broke all the time coz #Billz and this weird thing called council tax that I still don’t really understand override the priority of any pieces from the collection so I just had to admire them from afar [or the internet] until I had some spare cash to get my hands on some of the pieces. Thats when James came to the rescue. My little fashonista. He listens bless him, he listens to me prattle on about clothes and shoes and brands and my God he knows Arks catalogue like the back of his hand, maybe even better then me. . . . he listens to the 17th thing i’ve fallen in love with that day and remembers. 
So my fluffy faced beauty remembered about the Grace Nuetral drop, remembered my sheer excitement and got me a dress from the collection i’d practically been drooling over for Christmas. Bless you James David, Bless you.
So the dress, after the most long winded intro lets get down to what we’re all really here for, the clothes and the whole point of this blog/blog post. I’m loving the mandala print design the pieces have. As this is more of a summer dress, for winter wear i’ve done what I do best and worn all the layers with it. Putting underneath my trusty ribbed crop top from Topshop and then finishing it off with the best buy i’ve had on Depop ever, my Bitchin and Junkfood alien denim vest, a decision made last minute but I really liked the outcome. [I can’t wait for the warmer months to come so I can crack this bad boy out more] In summer I can ditch the tights and boots and just frolic about in this summer dress with some sort of flats. I say frolic, i’m not very graceful, if I tried to do that i’d probably bail and have scrapes on my knees like a 4 year old. 

I know this isn’t a new collab strictly speaking and it has been out a while and I know i’m the last one aboard the grace neutral collab train but better late then never right?  To my delight most of the pieces are in the Ark sale and once my spending ban has been lifted [LOL yeah i’m trying that again] and if there are any left in February, ima get all in that.
P.s Enjoy my squinty eyes and rain drop effect pictures. As per it was chucking it down in the Christmas holidays and I wasn’t gonna let the British elements force me into taking shoddy pictures in my room *Sassy Girl Emoji* perhaps the hair flick one too?

  3. I love tattoos but I only know a couple of tattoo artist (quite ignorant, isn't it?) and Grace is one of them. And God, she's amazing. You're so lucky to get that dress, it looks perfect!

    By the way, I would totally steal that vest from you. What a gem!
