B.O.D ~ The Capricious Club
Those of you who spend a good chunk of your day devouring style blogs no doubt will have come across Bestie Konisis of The Capricious Club during your internet trawls. Bestie is one of my fave style inspirations, she perfectly personifies the Book of Deer girl in my head. Manila-based Bestie is a self-confessed style chameleon and flits effortlessly between flower child layering and prim vintage looks. I love how she styled her Book of Deer Snowy Blouse and Grizzly Skirt with milk-maid braids, frilly socks and platform mary-janes. Bestie expertly demonstrates how to dress for winter against a tropical backdrop and I'm envious she doesn't have to hide her adorable outfits under a big coat! In Bestie's words: "I have only ever experienced real snow once in my life, on a trip to china with my family many years ago. It was an experience both delightful and frightening; the newness of it was nothing short of exhilarating. no matter how much we prepared for it we were still constantly startled by the jarring cold that crept over every inch of exposed skin and through little crevices that could not quite get covered by the warmth of winter clothing. still I would not trade it for the world: that brief encounter I had with snow made me believe, more than ever, that I was meant to dance among white flurries and stand in awe at the beauty of it all. I wish I had the chance to photograph my pretty new blouse amid a forest clothed in snow. i’d be playing on the ground with the grizzlies on my skirt, making snow angels until my fingers and toes and the tip of my nose beg for the warmth of a roaring fire and a sweet cup of hot cocoa."
