It’s the morning after the night before in Hollywood and all anyone can talk about is The Oscars – the winners, the mistakes made; both minor and major, and of course.. the style! Naturally, the one thing I am most interested in is always the style and boy did they come out to impress last night. The Oscar’s are always one of the most highly anticipated nights of the year in terms of fashion. Everyone brings their A-game and this year was no different. Usually you can expect a few fashion faux-pas’ and style disaster’s on the red carpet but this year I was pleasantly surprised that, for the main part, the stylists and stars alike got it right. The two major trends that I noticed were the use of both a monochromatic and metallic palette and ornate detailing be it in heavy beading, lace finishing’s or luxurious fabric’s such as velvet and silk.

Slogan Sweaters

 

Happy Friday folks! Today’s post is all about that trend that just isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon – the slogan sweater. Clothes have always acted as a way for people to express themselves and these tops and sweaters do just that. You are literally letting your clothes do the talking and wearing your heart on your sleeve. A slogan top is the perfect weekend wear; throw it on with your ripped denims and converse, and you instantly have a look that’s effortlessly cool. Below are my top choices divided into two sections; one is a little easier on the pocket than the other 😉

Hello Lovelies! This week’s second look couldn’t be further from the first one. My first look of this week was dark and lacked colour but I loved it anyways. This one is very much the opposite but again, I love it. I never usually wear many bold colours and certainly didn’t have anything orange in my wardrobe before purchasing this jumper but I just loved this shade and how it “popped”. I picked this cropped sweater up while I was in London for work last week, I was instantly drawn to the colour of it. It has a beautiful rich mustardy, burnt orange hue.

SS17 Shoes Wishlist

 

Hi Guys! Happy Wednesday! I hope ye are all battling your way through those mid- week blues and enjoying your day. If not though, I’m here to lend a helping hand. My favourite kind of shopping will forever and always be shoe shopping. With the arrival of Spring means that the time is (hopefully) coming for us to put away those winter boots and start wearing lighter and brighter shoes. Taking that into consideration I have compiled lists of my favourite shoes that are out there at the moment… As always, I found it hard to narrow down my selection so there are plenty to choose from! Happy shopping guys 🙂

Hi Guys!

Today’s look is about as predictable as I can get when it comes to choosing an outfit and that really doesn’t bother me. I think sometimes people can get so caught up in changing up their look or evolving their style that they lose their own personal style in the process. I love trends as much as the next person, I mean I count down the days until February arrives because I know that with February comes my favourite March edition magazines, so I’m definitely not innocent when it comes to buying into trends and fashion moments. In fact, I love them – trends are fun and exciting and create that buzz in the fashion world that I love so much. But that doesn’t mean that we should forget about our own personal style or that we should feel guilty about returning to the same pieces in our wardrobe.
