Fashions Crown is the Headband

 

"Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new."
- Henry David Thoreau

Every queen must have a crown but im not talking any old tacky thing, a fashionista would never sacrifice her personal style for a some fake tiara, its like giving up a child. So here is one for the funky and daring.


*not my photos*

 

Its a hot trend thats been hitting the runways for the past few seasons. It took awhile, but now everyone is on board, including Chanel and myself.

It can be styled many different ways, just like the two examples above. My personal fav? The headband turban. It hides your hair on days you cant control it and it goes with every outfit, but is not to bold for us shy girls.

 


 


The possible colours and patterns are endless and you can real fun with this look.


 

 

Now i pass on my crown to you,

Give the turban a try,

Its not red, its scarlet

 

"when in doubt wear red"

-Bill Bass


People describe the white business shirt as a foundation piece for your wardrobe. Then comes your tailored blazer, little black dress and so on. A foundation piece of clothing is like the mother of your wardrobe, its something that you wear all the time and its the base for every look. Today i official declare the red coat a foundation piece for your wardrobe. Its something every girl should have.

The colour pops and looks great on eeryone, it comes in various stles to suite every girl, so this winter we hit the shops to find our very own red coat to complete our wardrobe and complement our style.

 

The classic Trench coat with a modern twist

Every girl should own a trench coat that looks great and makes you feel great. This trench ties at the perfect place to show off tiny waists. It also has a gorgeous colour the frames your face.

The Red Blazer

This oversized blazer gives off a warm and cosy feel. Big shoulder pads make your hips look smaller if you have an hourglass figure.

A spoonfull of shopping makes the weather disapear

 

“Only great minds can afford a simple style"


There is only one cure for such a rainy day, when the pitter patter of rain only gives you a head-ache and your umbrella breaks in the wind and that cure is a shopping trip.

Today i hit the shops because a spoonful of shopping makes the weather disapear.

Knock Knock! Who's there? Winter...

 

 

Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.

- Oscar Wilde

 

 

 

Winters creeping up on us, sweeping arund the corner bringing rain and cold winds. But along with the evil gifts of winter we have the excitment of winter shopping. As the new trends for the season settle in our stores its time to search your handbags for your hidden cash, dust of last season boots and hit the mall.
I made my trip and can confirm the mission was successful. There are some gorgous coats out there, hidden behind tackey buttons and fake fur some gorgous things have been born.

 

 


 


Two new winter looks using my brand new Forever new coat ($109.99), new suede t-bar wedges, woolen socks for some colour and fun, My mums vintage lace tights that even have the old seem running up the back of the leg (classic), new necklace from diva (beautiful range of jewellery in stores now) and i have also collected up some vintage jumpers and belts.
