FALL FLORALS

FALL FLORALS



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 .

THE LOOK 




The BLOUSE and HIGH WAISTED TROUSERS are available on the AX Paris website.

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.









Hope you've had good read :D.

Stay tuned for more...

CLASH IT UP

CLASH IT UP

When it comes to an outfit I always like to make a statement whether it's bold vintage earrings, a bright printed vintage Jacket,Blazer or a Loud T-shirt.

Lately I've  been loving clashing prints!


Queen B and Olivia Palermo stylishly demonstrate this look!






And as I've got a wardrobe full of crazy 80's blouses and printed harems and skirts it's not hard to recreate the style!

Unlike the style of these Stars this outfit is street but with a hint of chic as the Zara Blazer gives it a bit of sophistication. 



THE LOOK








In this look my Tupac Tee and Army Skirt nicely clash due to the bold prints and complement each other as the colour palettes are similar.

Both these beauts are from Primark!.

You can purchase a similar T-shirt on Ebay

I struggled to find a camouflage piece with a similiar colour pallete but I've included some suggestions below:

This Dress from bangontrend.com could be rocked with the t-shirt over it.

Or you could go with the traditional army shades and
sport this Tupac Camoouflage detail top
from Etsy with this cute Vintage Camo Print Mini Skirt from ASOS.


To add a bit of sophistication to the outfit add a Blazer or Duster Coat.

Zara have a gorgeous range to choose from and

H&M also have a amazing selection from a lower price range.

I hope you've had a good read :) & like this look!

I would love some feedback so don't be scared to comment.

Stay tuned for MORE.

Love
