Call it a classic

We all know I adore all things bold, bright and experimental when it comes to fashion stakes but this wedding season I sidelined and reached for the complete opposite. Unintentionally channelling Audrey Hepburn, Givenchy vibes in Breakfast at Tiffanys, I opted for a black peplum embellished dress. 
Yes, black- one colour palette I never appear to reach for. 

The added embellishment kept this ensemble far from boring and settled at the perfect length, just above my knee. Accessorising was minimal as very little assistance was needed to compliment this outfit that I paired with a pink clutch and stilettos during the day and black in the evening. This classic look is one of my favourites.

Remember making a statement created the icons.

Spring fling glam

Hello my darlings! 
It has been a busy month but Spring is finally in full swing even if the minus temperatures are continuing to creep up on us. Spring, is the ultimate wedding season- typically florals, pastels and barely there stilettos but if you know me i've never believed in cliche!

One thing that remains for times to come is wedding glam. Where are the boundaries? Can I wear a red lip and get away with it? Should I keep it minimal?

The trick to this darlings is keep it basic, basic but not boring. Yesterday I attended the wedding of a close friend, wearing a black piece (did I mention it's my new favourite colour? groundbreaking).
I kept my glam pretty and glowing opting for a bronze shimmer eye paired with a smoky lash line and pink lips, subtle but not underrated. This is my go to glam for daytime events and it is quite simply fail proof. Paired with a Californian spray tan I ensured my face of the day, paired with my relatively simplistic ensemble, complimented my look without neglect.
Here are the products I used but just a reminder a nuder than nude lip did not go down in glam history.

Primer: Optical Illusion by Urban Decay Shop
Foundation: Dior Star 21 Shop
Powder: Stay matte transparent by Rimmel Shop

Ooohlalaa its fashion takes 5

Can you believe it’s been 5 years since we started here? Five years of killer sunglasses, endless city nights, dreamy beaches and all things runway. A lot has changed in five years and it has been one insane journey. Five years ago Anne Hathaway was winning an Academy and colourful tights were all the rage. We’ve flown the world, seen some of the most show stopping runways and kept it real in a world that just won’t stop evolving for the better and the worse. We’ve learned to have a voice, to count our blessings and to be ambitious. It doesn’t stop here. Thank you for your continued support particularly over the past few years it has kept me determined, driven and of course a little sassy. Ooohlalaa it’s fashion my darlings x
