Steal her Style: Miranda Kerr

Hey Guys,

I’m a big fan of Miranda Kerr. I know it’s difficult for a top model to look bad, but I do think that she rarely puts a foot wrong in the style stakes. She’s constantly rocking a polished, chic look that somehow still looks effortless. Thigh high boots are everywhere at the moment and this is a great look to not only showcase the trend, but your pins too! Thigh highs can be a tricky trend to pull off in a classy way but this look is incredibly stylish and actually wearable too.

Nail that Sale

Hey Guys,

We all know the day after Christmas means one thing (aside from more over eating and drinking) it is of course the post Christmas sales. As I previously worked in retail for 6 years and the fact that I am a self confessed shopaholic, I know how to sale shop!

While there are great bargains to be found, there are also in many cases old products from the back of the stock room thrown out onto the floor too. So you the shopper is often left wading through stock from two seasons ago, just to find the styles you have been looking for. So I have picked out my favourites from this year’s sales to hopefully help you safe some time, effort and of course money!

I personally try not to buy anything that is too ‘this season’ during the sales as I always fall in love with the new stock coming into the stores. I only ever pick something that I know I will like this time next year too, hence nothing that is associated too much with a particular trend.

Missguided Discount Haul

Hey Guys,

I’m sure you are all aware of the discounts associated with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it has been a hectic week of shopping for most. A lot of stores were opting for selected discounted lines or for those who had a percentage off everything, it only lasted for a few hours. Missguided on the other hand are still running their ‘20% off Everything’ campaign since Friday. The online retailer is already pretty reasonable so this discount makes your shopping spree even more guilt free. As this offer ends tonight, I have done a quick haul over the site to pick out some of the best bits they have on offer.

Leopard Print Heels €31.09

Leather Look Heels €31.09

 Knee High Boots €41.59 

Snake print clutch €18.59

Grey Fedora €13.50

Camel Coat €72.79

Jumpsuit €31.19

Bandeau Dress €36.39

Strappy Wrap Dress €20.79 (absolute steal!)

White Mesh Dress €25.99

 Full Midi Burgundy Skirt €22.18 (i’m not a lover of the Boots with the skirt but I think it’s so versatile it can go with strappy heels or boots, depending on your style)

Cigarette Pants €25.99

The offer ends tonight at midnight, so get clicking guys and grab yourself a bargain!

Happy Shopping 🙂

Power of the Pencil Skirt

Hey Guys,

I am a big fan of pencil skirts and I think they are perfect for a night out. I tend to opt for  a pencil skirt and top as opposed to a  dress. I think it helps elongate my body and slims my hips. Pencil skirts are not only extremely stylish, they also streamline any body shape, giving a sexy silhouette. They are perfect for nights out but also for occasions. Just invest wisely in the colour! When choosing a pencil skirt, make sure the material is thick enough to cover underwear lines and the like but not too thick that it adds bulk. At the moment I am in love with the options currently available in River Island. The faux leather material is so flattering and the placement of the pockets will actually slim the hips and help create an hourglass shape. The band around the waistline will also emphasis your curves giving the illusion of an even smaller waist.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At €40.00 they are a complete steal and will go with everything. I already have a black and baby blue one but I can see myself investing in some more colours. The skirts themselves are very flattering and are so versatile.

White wrap blouse, €33.00 & black turtle neck top €25.00  both River Island
