LOTD: The Rocker

The Rocker
LOTD: 

Continuing from the "Back To School" inspired looks I went for a rocker type look.  This look is perfect for those "students" who wants to show their inner rocker.

I love to layer pieces even in the summer, i just think that layering and mixing textures creates more depth to a look provided that you strategically piece your layers and mix you textures in away that looks put together rather than piled on.  [Quick Tip: When creating a Layered Look, you have to make sure that it is all about pairing pieces that have different textures and materials together but still complementing one another. Start of with the lightest layer and build from there while remembering to think about the juxtaposition
s of the textures and materials, so start with the thin to the thick to the thickest to show off all the layers because the important thing to remember when layering is to have a visual of all the textures and layers together. Layering can sometimes look sloppy so you have to try and look for pieces that have 2 different textures and material {I strongly suggest this if you live in a place with mild to warm climate}].

I started off with a Black Vest (H&M) as the base for the look and then layered over a Slogan Tee [Work Hard, Love Hard], I then layered over a Jersey Biker Style Jacket and then over that is the Faux Leather Biker Style Vest.  I love how the Jersey and the Faux leather creates a little contrast while still keeping the edge.  I paired the top half of the look with a High Rise Dark Wash Denim Super Skinnies.

On bottom, I went with my Black Booties which ties-in well with the look as it has this biker style feel because of the Cross Strap Buckle design.  For accessories, I just piled on Arm Swags and likewise for the rings.

Lastly, to complete the look I went with my FAVOURITE bag which is my Black Leather Bucket Bag w/ Leather Fringing to add edge to this look.

LOTD: The Jock

The Jock
LOTD: 

I've decided that this week will be a "Back to School" inspired for my outfits today's look is all about the sporty look.

I started off with a Basic Taupe Long Sleeved Top as the base paired with a Dark Wash Denim Super Skinnies.  To give the look that Sporty "Jock" look I threw on 2 Toned Textured Bomber Jacket, what i love about this piece is that it has the same cut as a letter man jacket so it definitely elevates the outfit to the look I'm going for and the fact that it's made of wool and faux leather for the sleeve which also gives the piece a little edge.

On bottom, I wore my Beige Hidden Wedge Hi-Top Trainers to continue on with our sporty vibe.  For accessories, I went for a minimalist masculine approach via a Dog Tag Necklace, a Leather Wrist Band, a Friendship Bracelet and a Simple Black Watch along with a hint of statement via Black Stars Cluster Ring.

Lastly, I went with my Taupe Leather Holdall to complete the look.

LOTD: Collegiate Fierceness

Collegiate Fierceness

LOTD:


Hi everyone I hope you all had a FABULOUS weekend...For Today's look i went for a more Prep and Polish Look with a Collegiate feel.  We start of with a Mustard Silk Chiffon Blouse buttoned all the way to the top for that polished look paired with Burgundy Coloured Denim Super Skinnies to create blocking and give it a slightly casual feel seeing that it's a denim jeans and not trousers.



I then added a Gray Blazer which act as the tailored piece even though it's made with Jersey.  What I love about this blazer is that it automatically elevates the look and gives it a more collegiate feel becasue of the embelished "Prep School Emblem" on it.  I want to add a little edge to the look and what better to do that is with a Snake Skin Waist belt, faux of course.



On bottom, I have on these Nude Suede Lace-Up Brogues which I'm in love with because they go with so many outfits in my wardrobe and it also ties-in well the whole collegiate look im gooing for.  For accessories, I chose simple pieces like this Mickey Silhouette Necklace that it Swarovski encrusted that I got in Paris, a I heart NY pin, a Striper Bow pin & my favourite the I Love You Envelope pin and a simple Gold Watch.



Lastly, I got this tem faily recent from the Sale...I soon as I saw it I fell in love with it and for the £7.00 it was definitely a bargain...a Cross-Body Satchel it's faux leather and it got a bucket bag style to it but slightly more structured...I absolutely LOVE this pieces it 's not small but it's not big either which is PERFECT.



That completes today's look of the day I hope you guys like it...XOXO...

LOTD: Back to Basics

Back to Basic
LOTD: 

"You can never go wrong with Basics" a quote from of my favourite Youtube Guru and Blogger Chriselle Lim … Basics are a definite staple in my wardrobe … They are like the black canvas of a painting, so think that you are creating an art your basics is the blank canvas and the accessories are the paint.

We start off today's look with a Basic Scoop Neck Navy Tee w/ Side Pocket, paired with with a High Rise Dark Wash Denim Super Skinnies.  Over the Navy Tee, I layered over a Scoop Neck Chunky Knitted Jumper that has 3/4 length sleeves and an asymmetrical cut [This pullover is a prefect piece for transitioning into the fall as it provides a enough warmth through out the cold days of summer going into fall].  I then added a little bit of print into the look via a Faux Snake Skin Skinny Waist Belt to add a little bit go edge.

On bottom, I also went for a slight basic but still keep the element of statement via a Nude Suede Gladiator Sandals.  Now comes the part where a basic turns into something more, "The Accessories".  I started off by layering 2 dainty neck piece an Initial Locket Necklace and a Vintage Camera Necklace then I piled on some Neon Arm Candy, a Wooden Saint Charm and a couple of dainty Wristlets on the other arm along with a SIlver Digital Watch.  The scenario is the same for the rings, I stacked simple rings together and added a small statement pieces as well.

Lastly, to complete this look, I went for my 2 Toned Duo Textiled Shopper Bag to play off with different textures and tie-in with the casual vibe of the look…

LOTD: Vibrant Colour Blocking

Vibrant Colour Blocking

LOTD:

Colour Blocking is definitely this seasons must have staple ... It's truly one of the best way to make a statement ... When colour blocking it's all about having FUN with colours that either compliments with one another or create contrast with each other, basically the key is to strategically pair pieces together to create the blocking.

We start off Today's look with a Shell Pink Button-Up w/ Studded Collar Tips for some edge and buttoned it all the way to the top to give it polish.  We paired it off with a Tangerine Coloured Soft Denim Skinnies to create contrast with the pink top.  I don’t know about any of you but I have been loving Orange lately and it's a been a go to colour of mine for S/S 2012.  Over the button-up is this Boyfriend Style Blazer w/ a Rose Pink Lining which also adds contrast to our current colour blocked pieces, while the boxy fit of the blazer provides androgyny and polish to the look.  To break off the look I have on my trusty Beige Woven Waist Belt to add a neutral accent.

On bottom, I continued on the Neutral Accents via Nude Patent Lace-Up Oxfords.  Moving on the accessories, I always like to pair pieces with Gold accents whenever I where Orange, as I think the tones compliments well with each other so I have on a Gold Boyfriend Style Watch, a Belt Style Clamp Bangle [this is actually one of my favourite jewellery piece at the moment], a Turquoise Beaded Gold Bracelet to add a little bit more contrast to the look and the final jewellery piece which is definitely a favourite of mine is a Brocade Style Necklace that I got for £1.00 in the SALE.  I painted the crystal pieces with Coral and Pink Flamingo Nail Varnish from Barry M.  The Necklace adds to the Pink and Orange Shades on this look and this piece can also be colour blocked on its own.

Lastly, I went for a more Neutral piece to carry my belonging via a Taupe Leather Carry-On Satchel w/ a Detachable Cross-Body Strap which provides Polish and complete a Vibrant Colour Blocking Ensemble.

LOTD: Summer to Autumn Transition

Summer to Autumn Transition

LOTD:


Today's look is the perfect transistioning ensemble for Summer to Autumn.  Burgundy is the new black for A/W 2012-13 so why not incorporate this vampy colour into a Summer to Autumn Look.



We start off with a Whit Linen Blazer; what I like about this pieces is that it has a subtle edge to it via the Zipped Lined Lapels and the Navy & Burgundy Stripe Lining which gives it a Fall feel.  Under this blazer is a Short Sleeve Box Fit Printed Button-Up that also plays really well with the whole Summer to Autumn vibe, of course I had to button it all up to the top to give the look for polish.  I paired off the top half with A/W 2012-13 staple colour ... a Burgundy Coloured Denim Super Skinnies, what I like about this piece is that it translate more as skinny fit trousers rather than jeans.  Lets not forget the Leopard Print Skinny Waist Belt that helped break off the look and also giving it a more Bold feel because of the subtle Print on Print combo.



On bottom, I went for my Tan Suede Lace-Up Brogues to continue on the Prim and Polish feel im going for.  For the accessories, as you all know warm tones are always associated with Autumn so I decided to go for Gold Tone Jewellery pieces, I especially love the necklace because this piece is so versitile, you can wear it long or short basically just play with your imagination.



Lastly, I went with my other Favourite Bag which is the Mari Leatherette Tote in Black to help complete this Summer to Autumn Transitioning Look...

LOTD: Effortless Grunge

Effortless Grunge

LOTD:


Today's look is a bit more on the Effortless slightly "Grungy" feel.  We start off with an Outsized Sheer Jumper Top in Rose Pink and under that I wore a basic vest top, I paired this with a Navy Wash Denim Super Skinnies and I cuffed the ends to give it a more effortless feel and to break off the look i decided to add a hint off print via a Faux Snake Skin Skinny Waist Belt.  I threw on my DIY Studded Denim Vest which I think helps elevate the look to have a more Grungy feel [The Studs are scattered on the Entire right side of the vest and I pinned Star pins horizontally just above the right chest pocket.]



On Bottom, I went for my Tasseled Slip-On Oxfords to add a hint of polish.  For Accessories, I went for a mix of Arm Candy via Wrislets, Wrist Band, and Friendship Bracelets in Pastel/Printed/Silver tone pieces along with a Digital Watch, a Spiked Ring, Infinity Link Ring, and a dainty Initial Locket Necklace.



Lastly, I have my favourite bag which is a Black Leather Bucket Bag w/ Leather Fringing to help complete the look.
