RUNWAY RAPTURE: SPRING/SUMMER WHITE

White is the colour of Spring and Summer and probably always will be. There’s something so chic, charming, cold, warm, and eternal about white that is so classic and will never date. White for Spring/Summer was prominent on the catwalks back in September; with KTZ‘s layers, A.F. Vandevorst‘s grubby chic, girlish lace at Elie Saab, and otherworldly dimensions at Gareth Pugh.

#BLFW BLOGGER’S LOVE FASHION WEEK

Back in February I was invited to attend Blogger’s Fashion Week as a VIB (Very Important Blogger!), hosted by Blogger’s Love… and I had a ball, I even had a drink (alcoholic!!!) which, anyone who knows me will know, I don’t drink. So anyway, there were tons of brands showcased at the event which was held at The Penthouse in Leicester Square, which by the way has incredible views over the whole of London!

NEW IN: SILKY DREAMS

20140220-132759.jpg

Aren’t they just the prettiest? I usually tend to wear the same underwear over and over again; usually the faded, possibly torn bras that are way past their sell-by dates, they’re usually the comfiest. I couldn’t resist this set from Topshop however, taupe is my colour and who can say no to silk and lace?
I’ll cast aside my old faithfuls and adorn my bosom with a treat of a bra, even if it is just for show. I’ll balance it out with an old pair of pyjamas that I’ve had since age 12 come nighttime.

STYLE INSPIRATION: NECKLACES

One of my favourite ways to make an outfit go from drab to fab in 3 seconds is by piling on the jewellery, necklaces in particular. You can be wearing a plain white tee and some simple jeans with a blazer, then throw on the chains, jewels and beads and you have a killer outfit! I personally prefer statement necklaces with larger adornments such as oversized costume jewels or large coins with robust chains, but I also find that piling on daintier pieces also works well when creating drama with jewellery. I’ve put together some of my favourite necklaces, all found on Pinterest, to offer some inspiration for those outfits that you just don’t know what to do with.

Aren’t they fab?!

CHRISTMAS LENS APPRECIATION.

I just bought a new lens for my Nikon D3200 (35mm) and although it’s taking some getting used to, I love it! My photos have gone from poor iPhone quality, to below mediocre digital camera quality, to actually alright photos from my DSLR! I’m no David Bailey by any stretch of the imagination, but I like to give it a go. Fake it ’til you make it, right?

Here are some photos I took over the Christmas period.

I’d just like to point out how proud I am of the light I decorated in our dining room. Bought all the supplies and baubles and decorated it myself. Nice little brag there.
