HOW THE FRILLS AND FLORAL TREND GOT INTO MY WARDROBE

FLORAL TREND 1

It’s the age old cliché, as the cherry blossoms start to bloom, so does the spring/summer floral trend.  How does the casual, jeans and tee minimalist work the floral trend into her look?  Equally how does the no frills girl wear… well frills? (more…)

CHAIN OUTFITS

I’ve decided to start a new concept on here and the ‘gram, introducing chain outfits .

Chain, chain, chain, chain letters outfits.  If you don’t know where that comes from check this link to get the jist.

Chain Letters was one of my favourite shows when I was off school (sick or otherwise).  Am I a nerd?  So I love word play, and what?!

After I made a blunder saying “coin” instead of “corn” and then being pulled up on it, I had to draw for the Chain Letters excuse. “Change the ‘r’ to an ‘i’ to make COIN”.  Luckily, he knew what I was talking about.  Oh how we laughed!!

Anyway, that gave me an idea – why not incorporate one of my favourite shows, into my favourite thing.  Word play x fashion = fashion play!  [The Bhangra dance, is my victory dance of choice at this very moment!  Join me!].

The majority of my outfits consist of 5 pieces: jacket; top; bottoms (read: jeans); footwear; bag. (more…)

DOUBLING UP MY WARDROBE

These “trousers” are actually a suede jumpsuit, which you can see in it’s full glory here.  I utilised the zip feature and wore them slightly undone.  I bought this shirt a little while ago and in true me style, I haven’t worn it yet!  So I decided to layer it under my trusty mohair sweater.  Threw on a cross body bag and some heels, et voila!  (more…)

WHITE BOOTS, I’M ON THIS TING!!

I’ve had these white boots for well over a year, could even be two; and have never worn them!

White boots trend

If you follow me on instagram, you’ll have seen my recent post featuring these white boots.  They were actually in the “to go” pile for crying out loud!  This is why I’ve said I need to stop shopping.  Anyway, when I saw the Balenciaga white boots popping up all over the place, I instantly remembered these and dug them out.

As you might know, I’m not one for following trends as such; if I do I like to put my own lil spin on it.  So the fact that these white boots are snake print is perfect, and the fact that I already had them is the icing on the cake! (more…)

MY CURRENT FASHION STAPLES

Current Fashion Staples

The past few weeks have been so cold here in the UK, it’s difficult not to want to stay in bed all day!  When I do have to brave the cold, my outfits consist of the same fashion staples pretty much day in, day out.  You know what “they” say “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” (I don’t know why, but I say and hear that in a broad New York accent).

Anyway, my top 3 Autumn/Winter fashion staples are: (more…)
