Keep it simple.

I know that majority of people believe that a true "Style icon" is somebody with their own sense of style. I do agree with this but I think that there are certain reasons behind this. For example.....

Kate Moss - She has the epitome of rock chick chic style. She is possibly the coolest woman in fashion right now and can never go wrong. For years she has been the cream of the crop with festival wear and people are on the edge of their seats waiting to see her choice of wedding dress for her big day.


From her biker chic leather jacket teamed with super skinny jeans and statement bags.

To red carpet glamour. Moss rules the fashion charts.
However what I dont get it the thought of people such as Lady Gaga have actual fashion sense. She does not wear practical fashionable clothes. Her wardrobe is made from stylists and stage costumes designed to make a statement not to look fashionable. I believe that the true fashion followers are those who can take simple items of clothing and mak…

Kelly Cutrone words of wisdom.

“You can fake your way to the table, but ultimately you have to learn how to eat"



“You know where nice people end up? On welfare.”



"Do your best and become as successful as you can because the more powerful you become, the smaller the other person gets, right? So it’s like the bigger you are, the better you become, the less power other people have over you. The best thing to do is to always compete with yourself and not to compete with others. The only thing you can control is your own performance and what you’re doing to yourself and with yourself. You also have to be careful about how you handle it, because you never know. That one cunt-y person could become the new Editor-In-Chief. Sometimes the nasty person wins. That’s why it’s always good to compete against yourself."

"I don't need to defend my company against somebody who wears pink"


"I say that half your life is spent trying to get out of a small town and the other half trying to get back to …

POP.

Now every girl knows how hard it is to find the right pair of jeans. Everybody loves a good skinny, but you have to worry about your legs looking fat or your muffin tops being exaggerated. The boyfriend, although flattering can also be slightly too casual. The straight leg, impossible to wear with the right shoes in summer, the flare, a tad too retro?
Now comes the colour pop. POP. The bright and bold jeans that have hit the world of fashion. My friend even said the other day "I love these jeans but I looked at them and thought, god, im wearing coral coloured trousers"
However I am a lover of the coloured jeans. (Personally im afraid to wear them, although being a size 10 I am the owner of quite the J-Lo ass)
Alexa Chung - As always.
Fearne Cotton is not afraid of the lemon!








Alexa Chung, Fearne Cotton, Nicole Richie, Caggie Dunlop, Clemence Poesy and many many more fashionistas wear this look.....so give it a go because they cant be wrong!

Airport Chic?

Image
No matter how long the flight, there is no need to look shabby on a flight. So here are some of the best airport chic looks I have found!
Because....lets face it you're italian stallion could be right around the corner!
Mollie King, the perfect way to glam up the over sized t-shirt!
Alexa Chung can do no wrong.
Dita Von Teese keeping it very Dita!
Again, Sienna Miller can do no wrong.
Pixie in her sun bright shoes and shorts combo screams holiday!

It may not be as easy for the likes of us normal folk but hey its worth a try at stealing their looks right?

A fashionable affair

Today I have realised my true obsession with fashion. I know a lot of people say they love it and a lot of people follow it but majority don't know their armani from primarni. However, today I was at work. At work in a nursery boutique. The manager of a high end stockist came in and the first thing I noticed was the HUGE Tiffanys rock on her finger. After freaking her out by staring at her hands I then noticed what she was carrying. MY  Chloe bag. (The last 2 months has been spent weighing up the chances of me getting any of the Mulberry of Chloe bags I have blogged about) seeing that in real life helped a lot. THEN just to top it off when it came around to opening her briefcase....MULBERRY....when her purse fell out....MULBERRY. 
I actually felt like crying.
I then somehow managed to move the conversation onto how good it would be if mulberry made pram accessories and how they still have years to make them in time for me to have a baby. 
By the time we had finished discussing how we…

What a difference a day makes.

Image
Coming from somebody who had a relationship for a long time from a young age, I cant help but wonder if being YOUNG single and ready to mingle helps in every part of life. Especially fashion.

Without worrying about what anybody else thinks you can be free to wear what you want, when you want, where you want.

Examples?

Well I know she didnt really ever have bad clothes but...



The difference between Jen Aniston in here post Brad days is amazing. I mean nobody wants to lose Brad Pitt but Jen Aniston has literally turned around and got better dressed with age now she can say "Brad who?" and actually look as though she means it!

Reece Witherspoons single debut on the red carpet splashed style everywhere.
 So be young' single and ready to mingle and it can only bring good things!
