I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

Plus, the winners for the 5th Anniversary giveaway!


White coat – Charlie May AW13. Leather trousers – Topshop (similar Topshop). Shoes – Kurt Geiger. Sweater – H&M.

I’m a simple person, not minimalist simple, just tea in a mug, juice in a glass type of simple, in fact, I may be one of society’s flock of sheep that buy things with louder packaging. I’ll even add a beeehhh while I’m at it. Is it just me, or minimalist simple seems a somewhat superior form of lifestyle – I mean, how do you deal with so much white with all the food flying around in life? I have orange bedsheets for when I feel like taking my Spaghetti Bolognese dinner to bed, for example – which is every day except curry day. Curry day is green sheets day. I pinched this coat (Charlie May AW13) off Charlie’s studio the other morning when I’d arrived completely underdressed for a coffee date, and given my history with food/drinks and how famously it orbits the massive body that is, well, me, naturally I was hesitant to take it out. Alas, it was freezing and eventually I convinced myself that since I’m craving a flat white anyway it could as well be fine. I don’t know about the chocolate brownie though.

Thank you so much to those who entered the 5th Anniversary giveaway. Here are the five winners by random selection, congratulations!* Additionally, I’ve decided to pick 8 extra winners because I figured that’s the least I can do for the beyond amazing response I’ve had in the past week. I’m sorry if you weren’t one of the 13 to be picked, but if my love is worth anything you can download some here.

*Winners will be notified by email, please make sure you add shini@parkandcube.com to your contacts so that none of them end up next to ‘you win £3 million’ emails by Nigerian princesses, I can’t compete with that.

    How exciting to see my name up there is pretty font. :D Thank you again!
    Absolutely gorgeous coat (and absolutely gorgeous lady in it).

    The other day I was Christmas shopping with my mum, wearing a white tee, and had been swatching various lipsticks on my hand. Come dinner-time at Nandos it was all over my right boob, from leaning on the table with my arms crossed. :(

  2. lovely outfit!

  3. In love with this outfit! The detail photos are incredible (;

    Love, Maria

  4. That’s funny, I would have thought your home was super minimalistic given the way your blog looks and the style of your outfits. Not intended to be a negative comment, just my initial impression Love eating pasta in bed. Followed Nigella Lawson’s advice on that one :)

  5. Gorgeous coat! I’m always wanting to buy one, but white color is just so fragile. x


  6. I love this look, it makes me want to wear my leather pants again!


  7. Gorgeousss

    Oh, there’s my name! Yaay! I’m chosen as one of the extra 8 winners. Thank you so much, Shini unni for picking me. I was sooo happy that i screamed and accidentally squirted out a little bit of my morning coffee (oops, sorry mum!)

    I’m looking forward to reading and being inspired by your blog. Merry (early) Christmas, unni <3

  12. i feel like I’m a simple person too :)
    love your pictures and outfit!
    beautiful coat

  13. Always an entertaining read & your monochromatic outfit is perfect, but I’d be just as worried wearing it as I would having an all white house.

  14. ಥ_ಥ there are actual tears seeing my name up there. thank you so much, unni! oh wow it was unexpected ಥ_ಥ let me fly to london and bring you pits of baskin robbins or gelato for that omnomnom

    while i’m at it, can i say you own all the best sweaters? i really love the outfit. and how you wear cropped pants, i always fail to do so. my legs look shorter. maybe bec of the unflattering shoes or should i fold the hem higher? :( anyway, you look flawlessly fabulous ಥ_ಥ

    thanks again, unni! xx

  17. I like the fact that your boots look navy blue on the first picture, even though I assume they’re black. Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures, reading your blog is one of my favourite moments in the week.

  27. love that white coat x

  28. Gorgeous coat, there is no way I would he able to keep it white though. I’m desperate for a clutch like that, saw I nice one in next of all places.

  29. your photos are always soo beautiful!
    and I am in love with your coat and sweater!

  30. Beautiful outfit love white Christmassy things.

  31. gahhh. missed the giveaway. my last blog post was about YSL cosmetics. happy 5! and i love KG shoes. love the outfit. reminds me of the 80s or the 90s, like what i saw on women and in shoes in Israel recently.

  32. oops i meant “shops” not “shoes” in Israel.

  33. You are seriously hilarious. It’s so bizarre because I’m not the one to drop or spill anything. My mother always tells me that even when I was a toddler I was very careful with my food and never had stained bibs post-consumption. I, however, am very fearful of a very white look. I’m afraid nature will take its course and I’ll sit on bird poop or something. I guess your issue is that you don’t trust yourself, I just don’t trust the world around me haha. …If only I lived in a bubble.

    PS – Thanks again for the lippy! I still can’t believe I entered/won :) x

  34. Black and White are perfectly matched, stunning coat!

  35. beautiful simple ensemble!

    I love the outfit! I have been coveting a white coat for years now, but for me it’s not very practical since I go to school by changing 2 buses and the clean freak I am, I would end up washing it every week. Yours is unbelievably chic. Oh, and congrats to the winners. I am one of those who will satisfy with your bunny love. ^^

  37. Such a flawless look!!

  38. I want you to know that I really love your outfits, they always look perfect yet very cool and never “too much”, but also the rest of youw photos are amazing too! You have a talent for both fashion and photography!

  39. beautiful!! love that coat! and that knit. looks so comfy x

  40. Great photos!!!


  41. ‘Is it just me, or minimalist simple seems a somewhat superior form of lifestyle’ ?

    It’s not just you! I have the feeling people are absolutely smitten by everything simple, black & white OR just black. Somehow people who dress in only black are waaaayyy too overrated, à ‘soo sophisticated!’. I like simplicity and clarity, too, but isn’t it true that some things are hyped for no real reason? I guess we are all sheep in some way…

    Anyway best Christmas/ New Year ever, thanks for the awesome giveaway! You’re wonderful! xxx

    Sorry to congratulate you until now! Happy 5 year anniversary Shini!
    Love your blog and specially your writing.


    P.S.: I’ve been restraining from buying a white coat for the same reasons, damn food gravitational field.

  43. It´s a very elegant look, love it

  44. Totally love winter looks that incorporate lots of white. Really beautiful look Shini. Totally want to go to the Cat & Mutton. They have the best chips and hummus. Waaahhhh.


  45. such a minimalist and chic outfit! you definitely look amazing! :)

  46. Great outfit! Love the contrasting white and leopard print xx

  47. Hahah, such an amazing funny text!!!

  48. Omg that is like the story of my LIFE! It’s like laksa and bird crap gravitate towards me whenever I attempt to wear white!
