Style is a very personal thing


Some people seem to be born with instant style, others create their own through years of trials and tribulations, but eventually we all find that look that we imitate on a daily basis and can often be to afraid to change.

Not matter what your style, its cant just be bought, it has to come from within.

To quote Miss Chanel.. ‘Fashion fades, only style remains the same’, with that you can develop a sense of style by experimenting with the good, the bad and the downright ugly.

Firstly, let’s clarify something, there are clear differences between Style and Fashion, one will outlast the other. Fashions are fast and changing, they have distinct trends to draw their audiences into a spending frenzy! Style is created by the wearer; you get a feeling for what suits, you wear the clothing, it never wears you. To become a style icon of the 21st Century you would have to have a limitless bank balance and an uncontrollable compulsion to obtain every fashion item at its inception, so as not to appear outdated. For me, that’s a wasted life.

I style myself with some simple classics; the staples and the one item individually might bore you but when themed together capture the essence of your character right down to its core.

The Basics:

Classic Coat that can me worn with many outfits, trousers, skirts and dresses.

Denim jeans that have a classic fit, either straight or skinny, high waisted or just on the hip. Ensure they can be worn with a variety of tops.

A Blazer of sorts. Now this can be your classic Office single breasted or you more chanel inspired cut.

Your blazer should have good tailoring and be structured enough to be worn with either trousers, jeans or a simple skirt.

That Little Dress ( I wont say Black but one that suit you) for many occasions, funerals, dinner dates, office meetings. The dress can make or break an occasion so always have one suitable when accessorised with the right blazer, coat or cardigan.

A crisp White Shirt. This is a must I can’t emphasize the importance as worn with a pencil skirt has a fabulous chicness or themed with jeans creates a lovely relaxed casual look. Either way it’s an essential item for your wardrobe.

Keep your style personal to you, don’t try to imitate a celebrity or idolize a social icon. Draw your style from what suits your body and shape. Experiment on shopping trips by trying on outfits and taking a picture in the changing room; then look back at the picture, how does it make you feel, do you like how you appear. Sometimes when we view what others see we can develop a good sense of self by knowing what suits our shape and what enhances your best features.

Make your style unique to you, wear shoes you can walk in, not just for show. Put on decent underwear. I can not express this enough! Your undergarments can make or break an outfit. Have suitable bras for different tops. There is nothing wrong with ‘big knickers’ they can hold in a multitude of sins and create a seamless flow under that sleek fitted dress. Spanx have revolutionised dress fittings. Holding in any lumps and bumps in all the right places whilst creating the perfect silhouette. I love mine and won’t be giving up any time soon.

So ladies and gents, when it comes to style it is really up to you to find your own. You can seek influences from the fashion magazines, online and shop window; but often I have found its your friends and family who ultimately have the biggest impact on how your style develops. From birth, to infanthood, teens to your twenties. Your rebellious years are your finest hours. Your years of self-consciousness have shaped the style you rock now but again you can change at any time. That is how you own who you are, constantly revolving and leaving them uncertain.

Make your style you own and OWN IT!!

HM Balmain Launch 2015 . The Reviews


Hello Beauties

Happy Sunday to you all and I am sending some much need love and blessings for the week ahead.

I thought I’d write a little piece on a recent purchase of the much anticipated Balmain Suede Thigh High Boots and Green Sequinned Dress. With the launch of a full range at H&M’s flagship store in oxford Street, I felt the need to express my ‘own opinions’ on them.

The launch itself was huge hit with the thousands of fans of the Balmain range by Olivier Rousteing, a french design who On April 26, 2011, at the age 24 replaced Christophe Decarnin as the creative director for Balmain. While he liked Decarnin’s aesthetic, he wanted to orient the label towards the finer aspects of French couture. At the time of his appointment, Rousteing was a relatively unknown designer, and has brought a much-needed fresh take on the brand’s aesthetic that remains to this day. He was credited with adding an Asian influence to the clothing, as Asia comprises a huge part of the brand’s buyers.Rousteing says his age, initial anonymity, and especially race led to grumblings amongst the fashion establishment. “People were like, ‘Oh my God, he’s a minority taking over a French house!’  and the rest is history!!

Balmain was and still is one of my favorite designer brands to this day but I must share my honesty about my recent experience of their new collection. Here goes…..The Thigh High boots….’I HATE THEM’ and the disappointment is overwhelming!! Unless you have legs like a Flamingo with calves like hercules and thighs like Barbie you will not enjoy the fit of these boots one bit. For the love of Gill and Scott these boots will only fit ‘Kendell Jenner’ so if you have purchased and wondering how the hell you will pee and sit down, I feel your pain and would suggest passing onto your longer-legged friends as soon as possible.

The above is a purchase one will not repeat again based on hype, believe me the collection itself is truly fabulous, the Velvet Dinner Jacket and the Green Sequinned Dress is a wonderful wardrobe must but these boots have really burst my bubble.

This dress is simply lush, the weight is fulliness, the sequinned details exceptional and the colour vivid and opulent. This dress is a perfect purchase for the pending holiday season and will make a statement at any party or event. Once you enter the room you will be remembered for all the right reasons. This is one purchase that will bring much happiness to the wearer.

Don’t get me wrong these boots are very well made, good quality suede and soft to the touch. However with thighs so long the heel is rather low and could do with an inch or two. Overall, these boots will last you the test of time once you find a way to wear them flawlessly but for me with my 5ft 4 height restriction these boots represent half my body vertically and I could end up peeing on myself through the huge thigh gap. I will therefore be parting with them with much haste and remember next time to use less speed with my online fingers!!

I don’t wish to upset anyone who has recently purchased anything from the collection, for me it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of quality designer fashion that will have lasting memories and continued wear. It was exhausting the hype that surrounded its launch but to me overall it was worth the wait and purchases.

Happy Sundays folks, you are blessed xoxo
