The Red Statement Blazer

April 5, 2017

I for one am a sucker for a blazer; I have a dozen different colours/styles hung up in my wardrobe (or say packed in my suitcase, depending on where I am jetting off to).

And lets be honest, we all love the classic black blazer. I mean, it is sophisticated, timeless and forever classy…how can it ever do you wrong? BUT now summer is approaching I think it is time to give the loyal black blazer a well deserved rest and maybe swap it for a statement piece instead… how about RED?

This is one of favourite blazers I bought from Zara not so long along. I like to style around the blazer or even rock it as a suit (I have the matching trousers of course).

OHHH and I don’t suggest walking around in nothing but a bikini and your blazer… just like I did for one of my most recent photo shoots. It was a lot colder than it looks… trust me.

Classic Chanel

October 15, 2015

Classic Chanel

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous

This year marks the revolutionary Chanel shoulder bag’s 60th anniversary, and it is just as popular now, if not more than it was in 1955.

I think I speak on behalf of billions of fashion-obsessed girls when I say a classic Chanel flap bag is something you aspire to own from birth. The bags are timeless, elegant and ooze high fashion glamour.

A classic Chanel bag is one of those must have items, like Louboutin heels or a Burberry trench.

 

‘I NEED this bag in my life’

 

Here are 10 reasons as to why you should own a Chanel flap bag.

  1. Chanel regularly increases it’s prices so the bags tend to hold their value well for years. This means that buying one now isn’t too risky and can be considered an investment.
  2. You can always sell the bag and recoup most, if not all of your money.
  3. Owning one makes you feel like you are in an exclusive elite.
  4. The flap bag has ‘inspired’ so many designers to date. If you are going to buy one, you might as well get the original.
  5. The Chanel flap bag in caviar leather will last a lifetime.
  6. The bags are still price-prohibitive so not everyone will be able to own one.
  7. The Chanel Boy Bag was a game changer
  8. There is a wait list for Chanel bags which no one speaks of.
  9. There are so many Vintage Chanel bags still available on the market because they never go out of fashion.
  10. It is Chanel!

New wave of brave brides

October 14, 2015

New wave of brave brides…

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something… see-through?

New York’s Bridal Fashion Week saw near-naked models strut down the runway in some rather risky designs. It seems the desire to wear these raunchy gowns have grown from the start of the year and now sheer translucent bridal gowns are being welcomed onto the isle. Some of the gowns have a deep plunging neckline, whilst others opt for super thigh high splits or even complete nipple exposure. It is one way to demand the crowds attention and another to push bridal wear into the next millennia.

Is it time to wave goodbye to the big puffy under skirts, long statement trains, lace veils and tiaras??? Surely not… but for those brave another to wear these daring gowns make sure you kitted out with nipple covers and maybe some heavy duty tit tape.

August is here 🙂 So that means it is officially BBQ season style diary time…

Whether you are hosting, attending or even crashing a BBQ this summer… Make sure you have your BBQ fashion game on point. You want to look cool, stylish and effortless. Base your look around being comfortable… maybe add some layers and if you cannot bear wearing flats whack on some cute wedges (no skyscrapers ladies). Pastel colours are effortless and easily accessible in the high street. Mix them up with some designer items to stand out from the crowd effortlessly!!

LCF fashion Show 15 Designer: Edda Grimes

July 15, 2015

London College of Fashion (LCF) Fashion Show 15

Here are a few behind the scenes shots of me modelling for Edda Grimes at the LCF Fashion Show 11/07/15

Edda Gimnes’s illustrated monochromatic outfits, proved a punchy statement as models transformed into real life 3D fashion illustrations by manifesting a hand drawn 2D effect that surely left us wanting for more.

Using mainly a white canvas as the backdrop to her approach, thick black ‘pen lines’ stood out for all the right reasons amongst the overlooking crowd.

The work felt almost surreal as models who resembled moving imagery caught your eye at halt, details such as gloves, headwear and eyewear were all incorporated within the dress and suit designs.

This was my ‘first look’ of the day and I thoroughly enjoyed rocking this awesome outfit. I felt like a 3D re-vamped Audrey Hepburn. I thought the accessories i.e. hats, sunnies and gloves were a fab finishing statement and completed the look perfectly.

The Prosecco was flowing and the canapés kept on appearing! The venue; ‘The Sanderson Hotel’ in London was a perfect location choice. It was packed with fashionistas, stylists, press, magazine editors, bloggers, celebs, MUA’s and a whole bunch of awesome people. The DJ played all the the right tracks to get everyone in the party mood; it was a great atmosphere.

The photo booth was definitely the highlight of my night… I am a serious sucker for a fancy dress photo booth – what is there not to LOVE?!!!

When in doubt leather it out… *Arts Club*

January 19, 2015
arts club

On a ‘Hump Day’ evening I found myself dancing the night away at the Arts Club, Dover Street.

The live band/singers were just fantastic at Arts Club. I wish I had known the name of the group! They managed to get everyone up out of their seats and busting some shameless moves on the dance floor.

Even though my friends and I had a table of alcohol (ahhh)… I kept up my Dry January regime and ordered several Peter Rabbit’s (Beetroot, Orange and Carrot juice) – this kept my energy levels high for a few hours… well, it was that or the fact I had also consumed a few sugary treats consisting of coconut sorbet and a bunch of Art’s chocolates…

Shop the look: Zara leather skirt, Zara blouse and Stuart Weitzman Highland boots. Perfect for a day and night look 🙂

Fully recommend Arts Club in Dover Street!

Marbella Ocean Club… My 1st Champagne Spray :O

July 17, 2014

Over the May bank holiday my girl friends and I headed to Marbella for 6days to let off some serious steam and party in sun 🙂

On Sunday 26th May, I lost my champagne spray virginity after paying crazy money for entry to the Ocean Club spray party! My girlfriend and I got to the party quite late; 4pm to be exact… This was partly due to us being lazy, relaxing in the sun, sipping on the amazing fresh cocktails at Sala Beach. The day party at Ocean Club starts from 10am until 8/9pm – this is more or less when everyone leaves. The champagne spray starts at 6pm and its basically thousands of people going chicken oriental with a bottle of Dom Perignon. It is completely OTT and full of show offs but it was good fun and I’m glad I went to experience it for myself 🙂

I was bull charged into the pool so the majority of photos I managed to take with caution on my iPhone 5s, I look soaked in… Oh I was completely drenched in champagne by a handful of delightful souls 🙂 I didn’t mind and several occasions bombed into the pool myself… Good job I went pretty natural; I didn’t have any eyelashes on/much makeup/hair extensions. phew… But I did feel slightly under glammed (even for me) so if I ever go again I think I will go all out… just for fun 😀

Into the Unknown… Becks on BBC1

June 10, 2014

Last night I was busy flicking channels when I came across David Beckham: Into the Unknown on BBC1. I decided to give it a go and watch the programme; which I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed.

This time last year I met him (and John Travolta) at the Breitling Bond St. Flagship store launch and I can honestly say he is one of nicest coolest ‘celebs’ I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

He turned up on time, spoke to everyone and happily posed for billions of pictures.

Heck, he didn’t even mind that I kept him waiting outside the ONLY toilet in the store whilst I carefully reapplied my red lippy for about 10minutes… Unbeknownst to me DB was patiently waiting for my ass to hurry up. Slightly shocked when I walked out and I get wind of the fact I had made him ‘wait’ by his PA …  ‘oops sorry’
