ruffles, sparkles and mesh

Ruffles are so cool. They add volume, dimension and create a dense texture when layered. They are artistically blessed and visually stunning when draped or strategically placed. Although ruffles do add size, flattering silhouettes are achievable and give a really high fashion element. This of course is up to the designers and their pattern makers to lavish us with their ribbon-esque masterpieces! This top is really a piece of art…

troop j brand

Saluting utilitarian fashion!   I jumped at the chance to be a part of #troopjbrand and for such a wonderful cause.   J Brand are donating $100 to the Downtown Women’s Shelter for everyone posting their look.   I couldn’t stop at one piece however, so I went the double for my take on the utility look.   This skirt is truly amazing, fits like a glove and the vest is spunked up with drawstring ties that create volume and shape when tweaked.

Bless military green.   It never ceases to amaze me how this divine shade comes and goes in much shorter cycles than most colour trends.   A military green trend happens every few years.   We all need green at times and this earthy, almost neutral hue is easy on the eye and easy for most to wear.   I hope you stay a little while pretty thing.

get your flare on

Well folks, they’re here… and they’re gonna be big.   Might as well get your head around them, because flares are rocking some serious presence in the fashion world.   All the magazines are shooting them, all the celebs are wearing them, but most importantly, they look super chic on.

In know you die hard fashionistas are with me, but I sense some of you out there rolling your eyes as you read.   “I’m too small/short, back to the 70’s, I’m gonna sit this trend out” etc, etc.  But before you judge too quickly, I have some evidence they could be good for you.   UK Women’s Health magazine has just published an article naming the flare “best jeans for shorter legs” that adds inches to your height.   This is due to the fact that when worn with a heel, they scrape the floor-line actually elongating your leg and making them look longer.   True story!

I ask that you at least try a pair on (these J Brand ones are hitting stores soon) just make sure you wear a killer heel.    I want to know the outcomes!

Big love xx
