Style Files // Pineapple Curry

You know that you’re mingling with the right bunch of friends, when they refer to your outfits in the exact manner as you would—fervently vivid descriptions that blend two of your passions, food and fashion. So, when I heard the word “champagne” muffled in the background of the room, followed by my friend saying that she loved my blazer because it reminded her of a spicy curry, I decided to use those interpretations to my benefit.

And, that night I cooked a Sri Lankan pineapple curry paired with a champagne cocktail. See, inspiration is literally everywhere, and I reckon that I should thank my outfit for that!

Naturally, as a self-proclaimed gastronome, I gravitate to colours and patterns with any reference to food and drink. Fashion is also often fused with artful and animated influence from food, nature and wildlife, amongst other things regarding naming patterns or colours (think, raspberry red, zebra print, or sky blue). 


Finally, here’s an outfit that I wore on a windy day to meet up with a friend to go shopping for light fixtures for an installation that she was working on. I love going to interior décor shops, and home furnishing warehouses, which is how our day was spent. Of course, café detours and vintage boutique halts along the way certainly doesn't hurt.

What do you have planned for the weekend? I think we will take it easy, as it's been quite a full week, perhaps enjoy Netflix or check out a new film … any recommendations?

    you're the only one that gravitate towards clothes that remind you of food...I think there is a reason behind my adoration for mint and pistachio clothing items or any shade of brown that remind me of chocolate...or coffee.


    That pineapple knit is a a treasure....and you've styled it well! I especially love that big yellow necklace.


    You know I never tried making a curry...pineapple curry sound interesting. Today I made lasagne with spinach and cheese...and man it was good:)!


    I'm a typical Taurus...cooking or eating, that's when I'm the happiest:)

  22. Yes I agree inspiration is everywhere. I love all food prints and believe it or not we were talking about pineapples yesterday. I love to go interior and furnishing shops too btw. Too bad we don't live closer. Btw I wouldn't mind to try the pineapple curry too. Ja ich finde die Zoeva Pinsel echt toll. Hab mir sogar noch ein paar mehr gekauft. Ich glaube ich hätte gleich ein Set kaufen sollen. Wünsch dir einen tollen Samstag. Ich habe absolut keine Pläne und freue mich aufs nichtstun :Dxx glamdevils.com / miradevils.blogspot.com

  23. Your outfits appear so effortless and beautiful. Wish I had your skill. Using food-metaphors is amusing.

  24. Pineapple curry and champagne cocktails? I think you may need to start a food blog so you can share these recipes with us! ;) I love the sweater and necklace in the middle of winter, though. They really brighten things up.

  27. Thanks Marissa. You're the fourth person that has mentioned that to me. Actually, I have been thinking heavily about starting a food blog too, but I can barely keep up with this one, haha! I'd really like to create one on the side in the future, perhaps for my dinner parties alone! :) <3 I recommend the pineapple curry, it's delicious!

    There's no one better to rock a top with a picture of a pineapple on it! You look great!

  35. Did you say curry??? I love anything that has curry in it so I would love to know how to make the pineapple dish you mentioned above! And I must say you look amazing in all the pictures and that pineapple sweater paired with the camel color jacket and the bright yellow necklace looks amazing on you. We all have different sources of inspiration for what we love to and I find super interesting and fun the fact that food inspires the way you style yourself and it actually makes a lot of sense! Love it!!!! It was a pleasure meeting you and I am glad I found your blog. Thanks for visiting mine:-) XOXO, Jeannette

    What a great symbiotic relationship - outfits to inspire recipes and food images that add spice to outfits!
    I agree with the others who have mentioned it - regarding sharing of recipes. perhaps you could do an occasional food / dinner party feature here??

  42. those photos remind me of early spring. warm but sneaky weather :) and your outfit is very my cup of tea. a cosy sweater, pair of skinnies and a statement necklace often save my workdays. by the way, that blazer and those wedges are very pretty too, I like those brownish shades.

  44. Oh what a fun way to get dinner inspiration! :) I confess the majority of what we have for dinner is based on what I feel like or what's on special when I'm buying groceries, hehe! :)

    I really like your outfit, no wonder it got compliments. that pineapple jumper is so fun :)
