Grunge…..

ImageI am bloomin’ loving grunge atm. I have given up trying to look cute and pretty because to be honest I just don’t have that kinda face. My obsession with the 90’s and Cara Delevigne proably has a big part to play in this new craze of mine, but sitting watching a true hollywood story today on Johnny Depp today probably pushed me over the edge. Him and Kate Moss were the perfect couple. Both just as carelessly cool as the other.

Image

I think this suits me because I have a mad cows lick thing on my forehead which means when I wear a middle parting it looks as though I have just rollen out of bed. But hey ho thats what grunge is all about, Minimal effort

Image(Look at me rocking dat grunge shizz)

I have actually decided that this is happening, so this sunday i am gonna do some major shopzin, and I get a new grungeified wardrobe. Seriously you will be seeing a female Johnny Depp. Who is by the way, the kind of all things grunge.

Image

I seriously could not mention the word Grunge without bringing up Johnny Depp. Some may say nirvana but personally I think Johnny Depp was the first. His careless junky sheek style is the definition of amazing. He might not be quite as cool anymore but in his younger years he was more or less a grunge god. But who almost equals his grunge goodness… the one and only Kate Moss.

Image

Her amazing face and effortless style is an inspiration. I am now in the process of trying to make myself look like the love child of Kate Moss and Cara Delevigne! xoxo

Vintage Valentines

Image

After blogging about 20’s fashion yesterday I feel inspired, and because it is that time of year again, I thought may take a look at some vintage valentines day outfits, and write a wee bit about them….xoxo

1920’s

Image

I know I was blogging about the 20’s yesterday but here is just a little bit of advice on how to give your valentines day a twenties twist! You could wear a beautiful pale pink pleated skirt, or a sequin dusty flapper dress out to dinner. Then accessories your 20’s inspired outfit with a beautiful clutch and/or a cloche hat. I mean why not go 20’s the whole period was about romance and elegance.

1940/50’s

Wear a beautiful 1940’s inspired dress, or a look like Marilyn Munroe this valentines day. The 40’s and 50’s were the age when femininity was re-intoduced to fashion, and when women were back wearing dresses with fitted waists. It was also when they got rid of loose fitting clothes and replaced them with pieces that really accentuated their figures. So if you want to look both beautiful and unique this valentines day, go for a 40’s/50’s inspired look and flaunt your femininity. xoxo

1960’s

 The 1960’s was when mini skirts, false eyelashes and go go boots all became popular, so if you want to look funky this valentines then it is the decade for you. The 60’s was obviously one of my favourite periods for history, so to be honest I think a 60’s inspired outfit or dress would just be perfect. If you a teen or young adult then a mini dress or skirt may be more appropriate, because that’s who the fashion was designed for in the first place. So if you are inspired by the 60’s then I recommend paring a cute red mini dress with a pair of wedges/platforms and and a cute black jacket.

1980’s

 Want to be bold and beautiful this valentines day, well an 80’s inspired outfit is for you! Everything from perms to shoulder pads were in style, so to be honest there aren’t really any boundaries. Untidy hair, bralets and spandex mini skirts were also very popular, so if you are going to a party or maybe out clubbing this February 14th the the 80’s are for you You could go for a beautiful red bodycon dress with a blazer (with shoulder pads) and a pair of matching red heels. P.S Don’t forget to curl your hair! 😛

Have a Great Day When It Comes❤

Rachel Berry

ImageHey guys, can we just take a minute to recognize how amazing the ‘old’ Rachel’s style was, and pray that the glee stylists will bring it back. Her unique geek meets chic style is amazing in my opinion and i have definitely taken inspiration from it. The ‘new’ Rachel’s style, is just a little too grown up and to be fair just isn’t as quirky and cool!

Here is a little Rachel Berry inspired outfit I put together myself…

IMG_0988

Since I have never seen her wearing trousers, I thought it best to mix it up and try a cute floral white lace dress, blazer and her signature knee-high socks. For my hair I just pinned her my hair back because sadly I do not have bangs, but I put in a cute bow (which I made) to complete the look.

IMG_0986I made sure I was matching, because of course, it is Rachel Berry I am taking inspiration from! Luckly my Ăźber cute blazer came with that amazing flower and polka dot lining, so with that touch of colour I paired it up with a pair of the prettiest pink pumps.

IMG_0987I hope you like my Rachel Berry inspired look as much as I do, and remember to join me in praying for her awesome style to return!

1940’s Inspiration❤

vlake01

As you may have already noticed, by the Frank Sinatra ‘Young at Heart’ music on my blog, I am feeling very 1940’s this week. I know that 40’s fashion comes back a lot but, I just have to ask why isn’t it more popular. Don’t get me wrong I adore 1960’s fashion, but their is just something about the class and elegance, with 40’s fashion that I absolutely adore, that I don’t think 60’s fashion has.

I mean can you imagine, people nowadays dressing so smart and elegant all the time. Well I can’t. Their is so much beauty and perfection in vintage fashion especially 40’s fashion, that I don’t think any other era can compete with.

Image

The way her hair just sits perfectly on her head and how her make up makes her look like a porcelain doll, is just beautiful. In some ways, I am almost jealous of my Gran and Grandpa!

Another piece of 40’s fashion that I love is the trench coats and suits. They are both sophisticated and elegant, and are cut and shaped so that they really accentuate the ladies figures.

Image

Don’t Worry! I haven’t forgot the men I am getting to them!

Image

Take Frank Sinatra, never seen without the smartest suit and his signature Fedora hat. Always professional and always ready for business. I love his style and I think for men he should be an icon, because he was just so slick and handsome.

I do know that maybe not all of us can spend that much time or money trying to adapt our style to look like a 1940’s diva, so I have got a few simple steps to modernise 40’s fashion, so you can get a little bit of perfection….

1. Be conservative- One of the things that make 40’s fashion so beautiful and elegant, was that the women were still stunning and attractive, even though most of them didn’t wear skirts any higher than their ankles.

2. Aim For perfection- Wavy messy hair is not on, don’t hold back when applying hairspray and styling mousse, make sure your hair is exactly what you want. Big waves and quifs are also signature 1940’s styles. Your make up should also be very neat and tidy, make sure and have dark lips, distinctive brows, noticeable cheek bones and an exaggerated jaw line.

I hope you have been inspired, by my love of 40’s fashion, if you follow the steps or come up with an awesome 1940’s outfit, make sure to email me and I will try and feature it on my blog. xx

I ❤ Erdem!

I know I say this about a lot of collections but Erdem’s Spring/Summer 2013 has to be one of my favourites. I have been contemplating over this collection for a while now, and every time I look at it, I like it more! I love how he has incorporated all this seasons major crazes, such as neon and pastel colours, but has still created unique pieces.

One of my favourite aspects of this collection has to be the beautifully detailed flowers!

x

 The use of lace also gives the designs a sense elegance, which I adore!

Image

 Due to my obsession with 60’s fashion, the psychedelic pieces have to be some of my favourite!

Image

 Erdem’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection will definitely go on my January hall of fame, if you love it as much as I do mail me or leave a comment! ❤
