Look 2: Primark top and shorts, River Island sandals. 
I'm not a massive fan of Primark by any means but it shows that you can pull an outfit together off the high street. I chose to wear this as I am off to the full moon, neon paint party on the beach, hello mess!

Time for Ibiza

Well darlings, I am sat in my pyjamas ready to go to bed soon, nearly 8pm on a Tuesday night, why? Tomorrow it’s time for my return to the white isle, hello Ibizaaaaaa.

The thought of a holiday has been on mind for the past year (specifically as soon as my plane landed back home last Summer) and it is finally here. Downloading the Elle magazine Ibiza guide meant the thought of going away tomorrow really hit me.
I went to Ibiza last year with a group of girlies after my alevels and had a fabulous time meaning I am unbelievably excited to return. This year I return with one of my best friends.

Holidays are not just about sun, sea and cocktails, although the majority of it is! It is your time to relax and show off all your new and fabulous holiday ensembles, the thought itself excites me! I have been writing blogposts in relation to holiday style for the past few months and now I plan to put them into practice.
Whether it’s lounging by the pool, sitting on the beach or partying the night away I intend to keep you updated with my latest outfits and in return I would like you to show me yours.
Keep me updated with your holidays!
What activities are you doing? What is your favourite look? What is your favourite cocktail?
If your going on holiday like me girlies enjoy.
Lots of love darlings,

Tashaa xx

A look into my life

The most important thing to me about blogging is interacting with my followers discussing both my views and their own.
Fashion is a source of admiration for me and something I am truly passionate about which is why I created this blog.
I thought it is very important to do this post for you to gain a wider insight to my life. In return I ask for you to share your answers to these questions with me in order to create a wider interconnected blogging community.
Let me know what you think darlings ...


What made you start a blog?
I was always tweeting and talking about fashion (I still am!) on a constant basis. The creation of this blog is a way for me to express my inspirations, admirations and my idea's in terms on style, fashion, beauty and life.

Where do you come from?
My dad is ex-military so I have lived all over England and in Germany twice so cannot really pinpoint one place!

What do you do?
I am a Politics and Sociology student going into my second year at Newcastle University. Alongside this I work part time.

Who are your style inspirations?
Kate Middleton and Miranda Kerr are two wonderful ladies who have impeccable style. The designs they wear are carefully picked out which makes me appreciate their ensembles even more. I adore the Duchess of Cambridge's chic royal glamour and Miranda's flawless, effortless day and evening looks.

Who are your influences?
Diane Von Furstenberg and Vera Wang are two amazing designers with interesting backgrounds that have worked their way into the fashion industry by not only creating fabulous designers but also life coaching within the brand themselves. Victoria Beckham is also a role model to me. Her entry into the fashion industry through sheer hard work is admirable.

Where do you see yourself in five years?
Hopefully graduated and on my way to becoming a successful woman.

Who is your favourite designer?
How could I only choose one?! Oscar de la Renta has forever been a favourite for mine, all his designs are so glamourous. Marchesa and Elie Saab, especially Haute couture, are perfect for formal evening wear alongside quirky and sophisticated Balenciaga who perfects the balance in both day and evening wear. Vera Wang's wedding collection is a dream of mine and I hope to own my own pair of Christian Louboutins one day, they are exceptional. Victoria Beckham creates my favourite line of handbags.

Who is your favourite artist?
Katy Perry

Who is your favourite fashion blogger?
Chiara Ferrangi, The Blonde Salad

Where is your favourite travel destination?
Anywhere hot!

What is your favourite fashion magazine?
I always buy Vogue and Grazia and have a subscription to Elle.

What is your favourite beauty product?
I own a gorgeous Lancome red lipstick perfect for vivid and bold ensembles.

What is the essential item in your wardrobe?
A great pair of shoes and tailored jacket or blazer.

What is your favourite show?
Gossip girl for the glamour and fashion and also Pretty Little Liars for the adventure and mystery.

What are your networks?

Victoria Beckham- Style Inspiration and role model

Victoria Beckham
Queen of the fashion world (and in her own right!)

Originally a Spice girl no one thought VB would make it to where she is today. Of course after the Spice girls success and a high profile marriage to David Beckham this fabulous lady gained worldwide attention. From her latex, cropped outfits to every hairstyle under the sun to say a transformation has taken place would be an understatement. Not only is she married to one of the hottest men in the world she has four gorgeous children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and our favourite celebrity baby of the moment Harper!

In 2008 it all happened. Victoria's line emerged, the beginning of her amazing impact into the fashion industry. She debuted her collection and received positive reviews from critics. The same year she landed three Vogue covers, the first being British of course, which help gain recognition. Her move to America for David's football was perfect, not only could she begin her line over in the US it was her chance to gain global success and respect. Have you seen how many of the stars are wearing VB these days including many of my other favourites such as Miranda Kerr.
A bag to die for, my favourite!

She is a devout anti-fur campaigner and has never used as such in her collection. She is a pro jet setter and has dominated the US, Paris and our very own London.
Vogue Queen and Fashion star.

I have a lot of respect for this wonderful women who has emerged into the fashion world and worked her way up. As you can see from my previous blogpost in which I posted her Vogue Festival interview you can tell that she puts in every inch of hardwork working alongside her team.

The many styles of Victoria Beckham ...

Airport chic ...

Ultimate yummy mummy, who can make themselves look this good whilst carrying a child and in heels?! Extremley impressive with her signature sunglasses and extensive range of handbags, which I am one day dreaming of owning.

Casual ...

 Comfortable yet chic. Whether she is wearing a sweater and boots or cardigans and heels, she is always looking glamourous.
Wearing a Balenciaga sweater, Porenza Schouler shoes and a handbag from her own range (left) and wearing a Celine sweater, VB jeans and bag and Louboutins.

Powerdressing ...

A powerful woman needs to dress powerful and Victoria Beckham has this down to a tee. Her outfits are always immaculate whatever the occasion . Her locks are always flowing and pristine and she is forever ready to impress especially in her favourite Loubi's. Power dressing is a favourite of mine.

Red carpet ...

Red carpet events call for red carpet glamour and this phenomenal lady certainly delivers which is evident by being Glamour's Women of the decade.

Working ...

Victoria has worked for what she has achieved and being in and out of meetings should take its toll, but not on her appearance. Have you ever seen an unflattering picture of her? Her outfits are always flawless. These two outfits are absolute favourites of mine, love love love!

Everyone loves Victoria ...

A fabulous lady with a fabulous collection.

New to Ooohlalaa-it's fashion


As I am going on multiple holidays this summer I will not be doing my usual posts whilst I am away. Instead I plan to do a day by day style diary for both day and evening outfits so I can put my recent blogposts on summer fashion into perspective and to good use.
I would appreciate any comments or questions about my outfits, please let me know what you think.

Conquer the cities in the name of fashion this summer

Lying on the beach for two weeks isn't everyone's version of an ideal break. As much as I love doing just that I do get distracted rather easily.
For all you city goers this Summer my challenge to you is to dominate the streets with your impeccable style.

Paris, New York, London? Fashion capitals of the world? It is only right.

It is your turn to get touristy, explore, be adventurous and look glamourous.
Personally I love indulging in the history, culture and arts of a city. The fast pace of the city is my element.
Here I have put together 7 city looks to influence you when picking outfits. Unlike my evening outfit blogpost I have greatly focused on city life itself and what I would personally wear if I was walking the streets of such an amazing place.

My personal favourite look would be New York, I am a major fan of electric blue, what is your favourite look?
Remember substituting designers for high street pieces is easily done.
