STANDOUT

STANDOUT

– MY CURRENT ‘IT’ BAG – I have a theory…if you’re going to do snakeskin you might as well go bold. I feel the same way about this print as I do about a night out – you might as well go hard or go home. P.S. No snakes were harmed – it’s fake! On the ‘fake’ note, yes this is a suspiciously close carbon copy of the latest Burberry buckle bag. It’s not that I go searching for incredible dupes I just know handbags inside out and back to front so when I’m browsing they seem to standout out a mile…

A RUFFLE AFFAIR

A RUFFLE AFFAIR

– WHEN SLEEVES TAKE CENTRE STAGE – I’ve never shied away from a trend, in fact I like to take them out for a test drive or a little spin just to see if they fit well with my style. So when I saw sleeves – big, bold and beautiful all over the catwalk I knew I had to try it out. You will have noticed I tested and then they conquered to the point where my sleeves get bigger with every blog post. I like to think I’m not a pink kind of girl but these days I seem to…

PROJECT ME

PROJECT ME

– BODY OVERHAUL – For the past few years I haven’t been happy with my body, it’s safe to say I let things slip. I wasn’t putting weight on but things were getting loose and my skin was deteriorating – once a few pimples, now well formed acne. You only had to take one look at me to realise I wasn’t taking care of myself. I got too busy. For some reason this new year it dawned on me that it was time to take control and fight back my body. I say fight because what I’m about to tell…

BLACK OUT

BLACK OUT

– SIMPLICITY IN DRESSING – It’s just one of those days when the entire wardrobe is turned upside down in a matter of seconds on that ferocious search for the answer to your fashion prayers. When I know I’m heading down this route I always opt for PLAN B, the backup, my safety net and otherwise known as all black. You can’t go wrong, it’s classy, it’s flattering and most of all it allows you to pair it with any bag you desire, solving a fashion crisis in a matter of minutes. An off-the-shoulder top – also a classic safety…

STATEMENT STRIPES

STATEMENT STRIPES

– A WORKWEAR LOOK – Statement dressing in the office is just as easy as choosing something boring to wear, so why not opt for the different approach. From my early school days I was never one to stick to a uniform, my skirt was turned into a cute pencil and my jumper somehow was a loose cardigan hanging off my shoulders. It got my teen self into trouble many times but it didn’t stop me from creating new looks to keep getting me into trouble. The bloom sleeves create a different silhouette than I’d worn before and when I…

THE STATEMENT BLAZER

THE STATEMENT BLAZER

– MASCULINE LINES – I used to think I had to wear tight clothes and short skirts to be ‘sexy’, I was so wrong. Sometimes giving just a glimmer of skin can do wonders to the imagination, a lot more than serving it all on a platter. That’s why these days I often opt for oversized clothes with just a flash of shoulder, or a hint of cleavage, paired all together usually with my faithful skin tight jeans. A masculine silhouette is one of my favourite things to rock – male shirts being my favourite secret purchase! Tying the whole…

LUXURY FOR LESS

LUXURY FOR LESS

– HOW TO ADAPT THE THIGH HIGH – The thigh high boot, usually known for it’s staring role on the night club dance floor. A nightclub outing is a rare occasion these days, out of fearing the week long hang over that follows a sip of alcohol. Once a trooper, these days one shot of vodka is enough to send me into a week long coma where Gossip Girl and SATC are the only languages I speak. So where do I get to wear my beloved thigh highs that make want to strut the catwalk like Julia Roberts in Pretty…
