As fashion trends come and go, quicker than… erm, let me think.. That time when Scoobies were the “IT” item at primary school. I never got the swing of them, until the trend had slowly dissolved. That’s how I feel about Mom Jeans. Anyone that knows me will always know my struggle of finding the “perfect pair” and I’m sure many other woman who is pear shaped will share this struggle as well. Why do retailers assume people with a larger bottom half, are going to have a waist to match? When this definitely is not the case!
On a positive note, I FOUND THE PAIR *woop woo*.
A week has passed, a week has passed since my post man was nowhere to be seen with my mass amounts of invitations to LFW.
Non existent invitations more like!
Having said that I have had my time to soak up the glossies and surf the blog-sphere in the venture of finding my favourite trends. I have chosen my three favourite trends from the catwalk and I have picked a few pieces from the high street ready to get your prepped for S/S’17.. Talk about planning ahead!
So ruffles, huge puffy sleeves

Christopher Bailey started the ball rolling for Burberry with ruffled over-sized shirts, they were seen on both the men and the women; looking to the past as an ode to Virginia Woolf’s Orlando (with a copy of the novel left on each guest’s seat). Bailey introduced the collection as “a love letter to the past and to English history and a kind of dressing up box to visit and revisit.”
Inspired the silhouettes created on the catwalk my most recent #ootd on my Instagram shows a chunky belt to cinch in at the waist and creates a more masculine texture with the clash the feminine silhouette. In the winter it would follow with a long line coat (video to come soon!) which would add androgynous vibes this is iconic in reflecting British style for Burberry.
I am always one for turning negatives into positives… more like always justifying my reason for spending or hoarding. I cleared out my wardrobe the other night in what I can now say I feel like a new woman. How does one collate so much?
I rekindled my love this kimono, thankfully it never left the “selling bag”. After some unexpected spending habits February has been an expensive month. I am withholding from future apparel and food buys and restricting to what can only be necessities. This means “shopping my wardrobe” I have so many clothes, I am in the process of thinking of new ways to style them rather than find an excuse of my lunch break to fall in to the devil-some ways of Oxford Street.

Wow! The daunting day has finally arrived… I have stepped up into the world of Youtube. For many reasons I have been toying with the idea of making video content for ” A London Lookbook” but with the help of my friend Ellie Girling (who you will meet in a blog post soon!) I have my winter fashion staples: Continue reading

I confess… When it comes to dedicating myself to write about my monthly favourites you could say I have become a bit of a commitment phobe. I believe it’s still expectable to create this post, as it’s not even half way through the month ! However, soon with a blink of an eye it will be October so I better get cracking on.
I’m quite the indecisive person, which could some up also how vast and eclectic my favourites are with beauty, fashion, music and whatever else falls onto this page. Continue reading
