Channelling Bridal Chic

Hey Guys,

In the last week I’ve seen both Cheryl and Candace channelling the Bridal Chic look and looking absolutely gorgeous. Both dresses were stunning and I especially fell in love with Candace’s look at the VS after party in London last week.

White is a great option for events as not many people like to venture from the dark side, particularly at this time of year. Bridal Chic however is definitely a style to watch, even being showcased by Simone Rocha at London Fashion Week in September.

Now as the majority of us ladies are not going to be wearing full length, lace, bridal-eque gowns on a regular basis I have kept an eye out for options that are more ‘wearable’ for us ordinary ladies.

It’s a Wrap

Hey Guys,

I’ve recently been watching House of DVF as I am a huge fan of Diane von Furstenberg. Since I started watching the programme, it has me reminiscing over DVF’s incredible creations for the fashion world. Famed for her introduction of the ‘Wrap Dress’ DVF has contributed massively into the fashion world. She has continuously remained true to her own personal style, strength and elegance and this is portrayed into her designs. She genuinely is a true fashion icon, whose designs will always have influence, long after they are created.

The Wrap Dress has evolved massively over the years and has progressed from just dresses to blouses, skirts and jumpsuits too. There are so many options for us ladies to now choose from. The wrap look is so flattering and can hide a multitude of sins. Particularly useful around Christmas when those sins are to be found in abundance!

Here are some of the best Wrap options available at the moment, all of which are pretty reasonable too. They are perfect for Christmas nights out, which will be hear before we know it!

Style Steal: Olivia Palermo

Hey Guys,

While I was out shopping last weekend, I spotted a few pieces that had such a designer appeal to them. As each of these pieces were such great value, I decided to share it with you all. I love Olivia Palermo’s style and I think the boots below are a great imitation, especially for the price. I would however suggest that you try on the boots before buying them. They can be quite wide around the thighs so sometimes you’re better off trying a few pairs to find you’re ideal fit! (I also am aware that ASOS is not strictly on the high street but I was being extra bold and online shopping too!)

Tempting Thigh Highs

Thigh high boots were everywhere on the catwalks of the different Fashion Weeks, the most recent being Givenchy at PFW (pictured) It may have been presented for SS15 but its definitely a trend to watch for the Autumn and Winter months too. Perfect for keeping you lovely and cosy whilst also keeping you uber stylish, which lets face it is the most important aspect! A good friend of mine also pointed out that thigh high boots also made a regular appearance on one of my favourite shows; Gossip Girl! Ms SVW loved a good thigh high boot and lets be honest, if its good enough for one of the most stylish fictional characters on television, then it is certainly good enough for me.

They may not seem like the easiest style to pull off however they are surprisingly flattering provided you choose the correct style and length. Perfect for emphasizing your legs,another key trend highlighted by Tom Ford at London Fashion Week. Thigh highs will elongate your legs, guaranteed to leave even the shortest girls with enviable pins!

Top Tip: shorter girls (like myself) don’t wear the boots too far up your leg as it will make your thighs look shorter…nobody wants this!
