Loud & Proud

One of my favourite things to do is to sit in my Minnie Mouse Pj’s and browse the interweb looking for pretty things to covet.

The other day I was doing just that when I came across a fabulous online boutique called Loud Culture. Co-owned by Abi Fashesin and Ashley-Rae Tapping, Loud (which stands for Live Out Ur Dreams – cute huh?) draws inspiration from gorgeous vibrant African prints (both ladies are of African descent) and mixes them with a modern and contemporary edge.

The result? Well, everything I’ve seen from the current collection, I love. Dresses, skirts, tube-tops and turbans, all in beautiful colours and all very reasonably priced.   Their favourite designers include Pugh and Westwood and the eye-catching designs Loud have produced tap into the flamboyant aesthetic that both labels are known and loved for.

If you like your clothing to say something before you do (and I definitely do) and also want to get a head start on this season’s patterns and prints look, then check them out. It’s too bad I can’t be at Coachella this year (I’m trying hard not to wallow too much, the lineup is AMAZING), a pair of those Loud shorts would’ve been perfect for my sun-starved legs 😥
Oh well, there’s always the UK summer festival season, and the new SS12 collection to wait for, yay!

Check out their online store (they still have some items on sale!)
