I love this simple and classic look found on Adenorah. There is nothing like a pair of red shoes to add spark to an outfit.

Seeing Slogans

January 29, 2014

Slogan tees have been around for the last two seasons or more, I think we all remember the green Kenzo jumper right? Well since then the trend seems to have escalated. Originating from street style, and of course band t shirts, for Spring/Summer 2014 they have been re worked for high end fashion collections such as Alexander Wang – with their replicas returning to the streets as I speak. I can’t say I’m a huge fan though. One I’m just definitely not grungy or ‘cool’ enough and two I am pretty sure in a years time the meaningfulness behind the words on my t shirt will just dissolve into nothingness! Saying that I do like the off duty casual vibe they give out – great for a lazy day when you don’t feel like making much effort. Let me know what you think!

Michael Kors

August 27, 2013

Michael Kors

It is offically the end of summer, so this is probably my last post for S/S looks. I don’t know about you but I personally cannot wait to bring out my winter wardrobe again! We are in the mid season phase where it is too hot for trousers and boots but too cold for shorts and sandals, so I thought this Michael Kors look was the perfect mixture of the two. It’s suitable for any summer rain showers or cold winds but still has that summery feel to it. You just cannot go wrong in stripes at this time of year!

Obsessed to the Max

July 21, 2013

This summer, which can you believe we have actually had, I have been obsessed with everything MAXI. Maxi or pencil skirts and long flowing maxi dresses. Of course I love wearing little shorts and skirts like everyone else, but unlike everyone else I only tend to wear my high waisted denim shorts and casual crop tops at festivals and by the poolside. When it comes to a shopping trip or evening meal I would much rather be covered up and cool than extremely exposed and self concious.

What is it with the English mentality to wear as little clothing as possible when the sun comes out? Do we really want to see eachother’s bum cheeks or rolls of fat on our trip to the supermarket – no thank you! Here are a few solutions that I have not stopped wearing over the last month, so comfortable and highly versatile. The maxi style works with heels or flats, crop tops or blouses, generally whatever look you go for, I’m certain you can make it work with a maxi style.

Asos Black Maxi

Asos Maxi Dress with back split. £18.00 I don’t think I have worn this on it’s own once, I prefer to layer a classic white Tee over the top or an elegant cream blouse.

New Look maxi blue

New Look Navy Maxi. £14.99 The navy maxi is such a good wardrobe investment because unlike black it is slightly more summery and so can be worn with more summer wardrobe staples. I love belting it and putting it with a long navy cardigan if there’s a cool breeze.

Oasis Pleated maxi

Oasis Pleated Maxi Dress in White. £70.00 Just perfect for a smart evening meal or lunch date. What I love about white in the summer is the endless jewellery combinations you can experiment with, turquoise is one of my favourites.

Topshop Black Pencil

Topshop double layer tube skirt. £20.00 The classic black pencil skirt is always present in my winter and summer wardrobe. Perfect with tights and heels in the winter and just as gorgeous with black flat sandals and a white T shirt or crop top.

Roland Mouret

Roland Mouret

Isn’t this just such a sleek and elegant look? I have decided I want to wear pencil skirts and only pencil skirts, they are just so flattering, especially with heels. When paired with a crop jacket they elongate the legs and make the whole look so streamlined! I wish summer would hurry up because I’m desperate to try this Roland Mouret look, take a look at his architectural collection which was a refined and elegant revist to the 80’s.

Simone Rocha

March 24, 2013

Simone Rocha

Such an amazing collection by Simone Rocha, considering the label is only 2 years old! An extensive use of materials, shapes and silhouettes – modern but with feminine undertones. I loved the girly, hourglass shape to this dress, in the soft yellow that is so prominent this summer. Though the dress I found is a slightly deeper mustard yellow with a lace floral pattern, it still retains a similar shaping. I did not want to match yellow heels either, I went for soft beige/white heels to neutralise the bright yellow.

Nina Ricci

Nina Ricci

I don’t care what people say, it is still winter where I live, so I will keep going with my A/W deconstructions up until March. Despite the cold weather this look is bared legged but the over sized coat and fur collar counteracts this completely! I love how elegant this look is and in fact the whole of the Nina Ricci collection, so you should definitely take a look at it for more inspiration. I think a silk wrap dress would have been perfect for this look, but unfortunately I could not find one, let me know if you know if you can!

Lanvin

January 3, 2013

It was such an elaborate show by Elbaz, with a huge variety of colours, fabrics and textures! I loved the brocade and darkness to this look and the jewels and beading add such decadence. I chose a Topshop dress to wear under the black peplum skirt, and then the belt can be layered over the top. Everything about this look is over the top, but it seems to work I think, do you agree?

Kenzo

December 20, 2012

I am sure you have all seen and wanted those pop inspired Kenzo jumpers that have been at the forefront of fashion circles recently, but for this look I chose something a little more classic from their collection. Palazzos are the perfect day to evening trousers, make sure you wear them high waisted with heels! As some of the other looks in the collection demonstrated, these trousers work with a delicate shirt for night and a chunky knit, shown here, for day time. I love the cobalt blue as well!

Helmut Lang

November 15, 2012

I loved this look by Helmut Lang, so powerful, with a ‘ I’m a strong and independent woman’  feel to it. Note the lapel less blazer – such a clever idea, by taking it away from the classic man suit there is still a sleek shape and form. The leather top is the key piece to this look, a real leather top is of course the better option but extremely expensive and hard to find. Over the knee high boots are a great show piece, with or without a heel!
