Ooohlalaa-it's fashion

Inspire, influence and succeed with a touch of sassy city frolicking and your latest style fix.

Saturday, 12 May 2018


With SS18 in full swing and Spring fling almost over it's time we get our transitional wardrobe perfected before our Summer frolicking begins. This season combines the re-emergence of the past with the extravagance and daring nature of our current day trend setters.
Now it is your turn to join in.
PRAGMATIC PASTEL- We think of classic Spring and what do we think of? Pastels. For years we have reiterated this colour palette cliche but SS18 has turned in the opposite direction. Pastels are back and they are here to stay meaning the spectrum of shades this season are unparalleled. I am in love with this baby pink military style blazer from River Island (SHOP HERE). This Balmain inspired piece is effortless and a wardrobe staple in the midst of the Spring/Summer overlap.

WHEN BOLD GETS BOLDER- There is always one colour trend each season that provokes experimentation and appeals to the most elaborate of fashionistas. Well this season just went bigger and better. Many have termed this as the 'Crayola era', taking basic shades and injecting them into our everyday wardrobes. Whilst this initially appears daunting it widens our array of choice meaning whichever colour you find yourself reaching for it without a doubt dominated the SS18 ready to wear runway. 
CHECKING IT OUT- Just this morning I found myself lusting over Chiara Ferrgani's Clueless inspired lemon co-ord. Hours later I browse all my favourite high street stores and find numerous Cher inspired pieces, in every variation possible. Checks are underrated and we were subjected to a playful take on the SS18 runway. Victoria kept it classic, Burberry breathed iconic. This is one trend that will flee in an instant, embrace it while you can.

SHEER- I adore sheer and season by season it gets all the more daring and all the more liberating. Elegance and the most intricate level of detail compliments the many statement making pieces that are creeping off the runway and onto the high street. This is one trend that will turn heads and provoke curiosity whether it's at the Met Gala or on the beach.
TRENCH TALK - Trench coats. The coats that you love and the coats you don't need. Whether you are layering it up or outing minimal a trench is that accessory everyone desires whether its two or twenty degrees. Trenches do the talking so when you are in need of a little ensemble love this is not only your quick fix but your go to fix every time. The Celine SS18 runway justified this.

PRETTY ME PENCIL- Perhaps one of my favourite trends this season is the return of the pencil skirt but why? Whether you are spending your days in the office, heating it up on date night or partying in the city the pencil skirt is fail proof. If you are seeking the perfect day to night look alternate you pristine pussy bow blouse with an overly embellished sequin top and darling you will kill it.

Which SS18 trend do you desire?
This season is about breaking boundaries and taking the b out of bold.
Gone are the days where experimenting is non existent, these days experimentation is the inevitable.

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
