Under the floral spell

While you may claim insurance if your flight is delayed, you may not be entitled to claim compensation for late arrival of summer this year in London. Weather here is mercurial resulting in celebratory behaviour among the city dwellers in the first sight of sunshine and the first feel of proper balmy air. So was it the other weekend and we ventured out in the Regents Park to witness the first day first show of the supposedly short film in London called ‘Summer’.

A Skater Dress, A Statement Hat, A Perfect Look

This post was meant to be short and sweet, I was simply going to share  with you a look I sported during my last holiday in Hawaii. One which will have me wearing a summer dress styled with an over-sized floppy hat. Yes, this post is going to be a visual ode to summer styles as it’s befitting for a brunch with your girlfriends or a day-out picnicking with your family or even  for a shopping trip to the farmer’s market.

Breaking the Fashion Rules

My fashionistas, rules are meant to be broken! (I am a certified rule breaker;))

But what fashion rules should stay and which are meant to be broken?  I did my research through this look styled by none other than me to let you know which long-standing fashion rules you should always follow and which ones you should toss.

Trendspotting: Wide Leg Trousers

My fashionistas, after several years of skinny chinos ruling the fashion world, wide leg trousers are making their mark again. Wide-leg trousers isn’t something new. It was a trend in the 70’s and since then, it keeps on coming back. I’ve always been a fan of wide-leg and flared pants so I’m definitely one of those people rejoicing over its return. I didn’t just “try” this trend, it’s more like resurrecting a long lost love. Although I definitely don’t want to see skinny chinos go – especially the colored ones, I am to welcome an alternative to the mix. No wonder celebs are wearing them high waisted, low slung, with heels, with sandals, chiffon, linen and everywhere in between. Continue reading Trendspotting: Wide Leg Trousers
