THE GLAM LIFE

THE GLAM LIFE

“You can never be overdressed or overeducated.” – Oscar Wilde

I’m not sure Oscar Wilde knew anything about sparkly jackets or killer heels but his words still remain my everyday mantra. I’m a girl that is rarely seen in flats – heels for me give a presence that elevates a look from ordinary to glam. I for one love the glam life!

I’ve been hit massively by the January blues this year – I kick started the year really ill which gave me zero motivation! So when I’m having those down days I always like to get overdressed almost to counteract the blues. Like some people get their morning hit from coffee I get that buzz from stepping out the house in a pair of sparkly stilettos and ever so fabulous matching jacket.

My first ever ‘real’ job – I say real because I’ve gone through life avoiding offices of any kind. I’ve always said I’d rather work in a zoo cleaning up manure than work a 9-5 job, albeit I would probably still be shovelling in stilettos. For no other reason than I find it hard to sit still, call it cabin fever. Anyway, I managed to do a four month stint in an office once and I found myself wearing the most boring practical clothes just to fit in. I spent everyday feeling terrible but I somehow couldn’t bring myself to wear leopard print, neon, sparkle or anything of the sort.

I learnt many things about myself in that period of my life, one was never dress to fit in. Even if I feel uncomfortable in a new environment I learnt to always dress in clothes that make me feel good. This outfit for instance makes me very happy and it’s my ‘Thank God It’s Friday’ ensemble.

This jacket is Boohoo’s take on Balmain and perfect to jazz up office attire or even over a dress on a night out. I love both designer and high street, you will have noticed I mix it up – sometimes I have a dupe, sometimes I have the real thing. I tend to invest in staples though rather than trends. Something like this jacket I opted for the high street equivalent as it’s fun for this season and perfect for certain occasions. I prefer to go designer on everyday bags, coats, boots. There is theory behind my mix-it-up madness! As I always say a price tag doesn’t define you – style does!
