LOTD: Denim on Denim

"Denim on Denim"
 LOOK OF THE DAY

Today's look of the day is casual smart take on the denim on denim styling which became popular in the 80's and 90'.  The styling in itself is definitely a bold take especially if pieced together properly.  Whenever I create a look with a good amount of denim textures in it, I always ensure that they are different denim washes from one another in order to make it look tasteful rather than tacky.

I started off with a light wash studded denim button-up by Topshop buttoned all the way to the top to give it polish paired with a classic blue denim wash skinnies.  Over the button-up, I added on an oxblood long knitted cardigan by Primark.

On bottom, I continued on the polished feel by added my tan suede lace-up brogues by New Look.

For accessories, I opted for some arm candy by Accessorize, a simple watch by Sekonda and a couple of rings by Topshop.

The chosen bag to go with today's pairing is my tan briefcase style tote by ZARA.

Lastly, the outerwear of the day is my wool pea coat by Uniqlo with a detachable faux fur lapel by ASOS along with a chocolate brown pashmina from the United Colours of Benetton and a pork pie hat by Topshop.

That's it for today’s LOTD and until the next time…FASHION IS THE DICTATOR OF TASTE! …XOXO…

LOTD: 80's - 90's Eclectic Chic

"80's - 90's Eclectic Chic"
LOOK OF THE DAY

Happy Monday! Today’s look of the day features my take on yet another late 80's to early 90's fashions...I personally have no idea why I gravitate toward this kind of styling in the past few post.  I think of this a good thing as I find that I am able to try something that I initially would think would jot suite me but turns out completely the opposite.

We start off with a white outsize button-up by Primark buttoned all the way to the top and paired it with a dark indigo wash denim super skinnies by New Look; I cuffed the ends to show more of the shoe.  I layered over the button-up with a hound’s-tooth printed outsized cardigan by Primark.

On bottom, I went with my brown lace-up brogue ankle boots by Primark.

For accessories, I opted to go with cool silver toned jewellery pieces via a western inspired collar tips by Amazon which adds the subtle hint of colour, a digital Casio watch to give it a retro feel and a few stack rings by Topshop.

The chosen bag for today's pairing is my TK Maxx mink satchel with detachable cross body strap.

Lastly, today's outerwear is a blended wool pea coat in black by Uniqlo with a detachable faux fur lapel by ASOS along with a black pashmina from a Flea Market, a black pork pie hat by Topshop and a pair of black leather gloves by M&S.

That's it for today’s LOTD and until the next time…FASHION IS THE DICTATOR OF TASTE! …XOXO…

LOTD: Punkish Grunge

"Punkish Grunge"
 LOOK OF THE DAY

HAPPY FRIDAY! To a my Lovely Fashionista's out there...Today's ensemble is yet another late 80's early 90's inspired look but with a grungy/punkish feel to it.

I started off with a white mesh knitted jumper by H&M as the top base (I am wearing a thermal top underneath for that extra warmth) paired with my high rise skinnies also by H&M (this happens to be a size 10..I simply just cannot believe that I would ever fit in a 10 ever again...LoL...).  Over the jumper I layered a studded denim vest which you guys have seen me religiously wear during the summer also by H&M with my added touch.

On bottom, I wanted to keep the punkish grunge look so I have on my studded boots by New Look in nude shade to give the look more of a light feel as supposed to your typical dark grunge.

For accessories, I played off with the toughness of the denim vest and decided to juxtapose by adding dainty feminine pieces like my initial locket necklace by ASOS, a handchain by Topshop and a digital watch by Casio.

The chosen bag for today's pairing is my TK Maxx mink satchel with detachable cross body strap to add a subtle hint of structure and polish.

Lastly, today's outerwear is a utilitarian coat by Primark along with a chunky knitted scarf by Topshop, a grey pork pie hat also by Topshop and a pair of grey fingerless gloves by River Island.

Today's look of the day is going to showcase more masculine side of my styling by mixing pieces from both men's wear and women's wear to construct a somewhat androgynous ensemble.

LOTD: Aztec Juxtapose

"Aztec Juxtapose"
 LOOK OF THE DAY

I am all about juxtaposition with most of the garment I wear as I like combining men’s wear with women’s wear and giving it an unexpected twist or sometimes the unintentional themed look without being costumie of course; Today, I decided to do just that.

I started off with an outsized denim button up which was previously owned by my Dad but it didn’t fit him anymore so he gave it to me.  I paired this with my light grey super skinny denim by River Island purchased for £15.00 (prp £45.00) to give the bottom half balance and create a streamline as the top half is quite lose and outsized.  Over the denim button-up I wanted to add a pop of print so that it wouldn’t be full on denim on denim so i threw on my Aztec printed light weight bomber jacket by New Look.

On bottom, I wanted the look to have a mixed tribal vibe so I went with my tasselled suede ankle bootie from New Look.

For accessories, I opted for gold tone pieces as I thought that the warm toned jewellery pieces would be best suited.  I have on an Aztec totem ladder necklace by Forever 21 long with a simple analogue watch by Sekonda and a few dainty rings by Topshop.

The chosen bag for today's pairing is the unexpected twist to the look which is a 2 toned metallic coated leather shopper by H&M purchased for £5.00 (prp £29.99).

On to the final pieces to complete today's look which is the outerwear and so I went with my trusty leather quilted moto jacket by Topshop and my chunky knitted long scarf by River Island to keep me warm on this very cold day in London Town...xoxo...

 LOOK OF THE DAY

Today's look of the day is another take one the upper class man kind of style.  This look will give a somewhat edgy casual smart vibe because of the garments I put together to create this ensemble as supposed to conventional “Smart” look.

I started off with a pink button-up which came from my Dad's closet, I buttoned it all the way to the top to give it that polished look, I then paired it with my coated denim moto style skinnies by H&M in a jewel tone colour which in turns gives the look that unexpected twist along with elevating the look to have an edgy vibe.  Over the button-up, decided to layer chunky knitted lapelled cardigan by New Look [this garment originally retailed for £39.99 and I got it in the sale for £10.00 major bargain...

On bottom, I kept the smart vibe by adding my slate colour lace brogues by New Look.

For accessories, I opted for gold tone jewellery pieces via a pearl bolo tie by ASOS, a simple analogue watch also by ASOS along with a spike and diamanté dome bracelet and a few rings from Topshop.
