Look of the day.

This look is so simple, both the colour palate and skinny jeans/turtle-neck knit combo are so simple, yet so chic. A look I’m loving this winter is the turtle-neck, I hope it’s making a come back, and if blogger Elin Kling is rocking one, then I think signs may point to yes. Even her Celine tote is perfectly coordinated with the ensemble. Simple winter styling at it’s best.

Susie, Tavi and fur.

I went away for Easter with some friends, it was such a nice weekend, we went to my friends family house in the country, had bonfires, ate chocolate and generally had a wonderful time all round. This is why I haven’t posted for a while, but I thought I would put up these pictures I found on www.streetpeeper.com. Also yesterday I bought a pair of Chloe boots that were 40% off, it was possibly one of the best fashion days of my life, so I’ll be blogging about them in a couple of days.

So much fur, all in a row.

Happiness made easy.

Unlike fast food, fast happiness can come free of unwanted weight gain and calories. Fast happiness, in my world at least, can come in the form of a new purchase or even just putting on your favourite pair of heels or a bit of red lip stick. Whatever it may be, in the world of fashion and beauty, happiness can come easily. If you are like me and don’t love the look of your rear-end in the harshly lit changing-rooms of your local boutiques or shopping centres, then reach for the shoes, feet never change size (well once you leave puberty behind), they don’t gain weight, get cellulite, or have ‘fat days’, feet are un-changing – as long as you keep your pedicure up to date. So strap on your favourite heels or if you really want to treat yourself, buy a new pair. For those of you who love nothing more than going to shopping centres and spending hours in the change-rooms with mirrors at every angle, looking at your perfectly toned rear, then please, put on your favourite jeans or body hugging dress and have a good squiz. And if you really don’t feel like putting on clothes or shoes, if your tracksuits will suffice as an appropriate pick-me-up ensemble, then slick on some lipstick. Scarlett Johanson says that if she ever has a bad day, red lipstick heals all wounds.

In a world of glitz and glam, that some regard as shallow and materialistic, I truly believe that if you look good you feel good. So, brighten your Monday with heels, jeans or lipstick, trust me, it might not bring world peace, but it might lift your mood for today. I wrote this wearing my new winter heeled-booties after I had  come home early from uni nursing a cold, and the blocked nose and headache seem to have improved slightly with my new booties on.

Look of the day.

I’ve seen this pic on so many fashion blogs over the past few weeks and I’ve been so tempted to use, so when I saw it this last time I thought it was a sign, I had to use it. Uliana Sergeenko is one of my fashion icons, she is always so chic and unique in her fashion choices. Love this cape with the double denim!

Emerging trend: statement flares.

In amongst the doom and gloom of winter, I have seen a new trend emerge. During the many hours that I spend during the week scrolling through the street-style blogs that I follow, I have seen lots of black and grey, fur and wool, tights and boots, but I have also seen colour, lots of it, especially in the emerging trend of flared, printed statement pants. The colours are generally bright and the pattern loud, they are generally floor length and always attention grabbing. Worn with a plain blouse, shirt or jacket, or with a clashing colour or print, the pants stand out no matter the season, event or dress-code. From blogger Tamu McPherson to stylist Christene Centenera, the pants are very on trend, definitely something to invest in for the coming northern hemisphere spring or as something to keep your wardrobe bright in the coming southern hemisphere autumn.
