This recent look was kind of styled by default!
As some of you know I work for the Fashion Brand AXParis
and our big blogger A/W14 Press Day was coming up.
I was manic busy helping with the prep as well as my acting ( I scored a little cheeky role in Hamlet ;) )
So with all this going on I still had to decide what I was going to wear for our big fashion event.
We got to select from our New AW14 Collection and after rushing around in a panic this blouse caught my eye.
I loved the feather print and the hint of yellow and I knew I could style it up with the black high waisted jeans I also had my eye on.
PANIC MODE!!! I found out another member of staff (senior to me :S ) ALSO wanted to wear the blouse so minutes before I finished work and was due to perform at the Theatre ,I ran around like a headless chicken trying to find something to wear.
I ended up picking this Floral number. The change kind of threw me at first as I wanted to go for a edgy gothic look.
I felt the feminine floral didn't fit the style image I had created in my mind.
After trying on my full outfit it was lacking my individual style and edge.
I looked at the floral blouse in the mirror and suddenly my floral vintage braces popped into my head, I knew that they'd work and quirk up this girly look.
I finished off the look with dark smokey eyes ,red lips and my fav lace up black boots .
Unfortunately I bought my New Look boots YEARS ago but they have a nice selection of HIGH LEG BOOTS so have a cheeky look !
I've recently discovered that Etsy is a good place to to buy VINTAGE BRACES so I suggest you have a gander :).
The Press Day was a great success. The ladies loved our New Collection,I met so many lovely bloggers including the lovely Stephi LaReine had a catch up with Frances Cassandra :D.Loved networking,eating cupcakes,sipping cocktails and had a ball in the photo booth with my AX Girls including my fellow fashionista Aina Akin.
Stay tuned for more...
