Lady In Red- ASOS T-Shirt Dress

Dress: ASOS

Knee High Socks: Primark

Jewellery: Topshop

Hello again!!! I bet you weren’t expecting to hear from me so soon after my last post. Well here I am. I received a  bit of feedback from my last post and apparently you guys want photos. I hope you enjoy this post more than the last one!

Today I’m sharing with you my new love for heavy gold accessories and red clothing. Although I say red, I actually mean a deeper shade, for example burgundy or maroon. The dress above is actually an oversized T-shirt, I loved the colour so much, and decided that it would be fun to turn it into a dress, adding a belt to pull in your waist really shows off your figure. On top I added a vintage  blazer accentuated with gold cuffs; because the blazer is quite big it can be used a coat, which is really needed in this weather, especially. Another reason why I love blazers are the shoulder pads. I know that its a little 2009/10 but i do love the eighties and try get a little shoulder action going whenever its possible, it really makes an outfit more dramatic.

The jewellery- I don’t know if you have noticed but the gold chain isn’t actually hanging correctly, make sure you check that before you leave the house. I think chunky gold jewellery goes perfectly with maroon and burgundy. I think the colours look urban and sophisticated and again are a little eighties inspired.

Leather Trousers

Shirt: H&M

Leather Trousers: Dorothy Perkins

Heels: Missguided

This time I have added black leather trousers, to my ‘red’ shirt. I do love the leather trousers, as they make the entire outfit a little bit more rocking.  Obviously, you can use leather leggings with this as well. Leggings are lighter, however I have always found that the leather in the trousers looks more authentic. Again the same jewellery can be used here.

My favourite item has to be the heels. I call them The Beasts because they are 6″ and have a snake-skin design on the front. Although, they are slighty heavy and will get uncomfortable by the end of the night, these shoes are too gorgeous to pass up. Here is a closer look:

The heels are from Missguided, and are only £37.99, as soon as you put them on, you instantly feel like a diva.

Well we all know its fashion week and like most bloggers I’ve enjoyed looking at the designers newest creations.  The name that keeps popping up has to be Victoria Beckham. Whether it is really because of her clothes or because there are pictures of her husband’s semi-naked body plastered all over the place, whatever it is Victoria has to be given her props because what she has produced is truly fabulous. Beckham stuck with her smart and sexy vision, with touches of military inspiration. My favourite part of her vision is that none of it is over flashy or too eccentric but the beauty is much more demure and classy.  Other names such as Alexander McQueen, Alberta Ferretti didn’t disappoint in their production of beautiful pieces.

Lady in Red overview

Dress for youe size- The rest and more

29 Sep

Hi Guys,

I would like to apologise for the lack of blogs. My routine has been jumbled slightly and I needed to allocate time to do this. However I am back, and after a lot of thinking I realised that the ‘dress for your size’ will soon become extremely tedious and boring for you guys. So I am going to finish it off here, with a couple more…

Hourglass

The hourglass figure recalls old school Hollywood glamour and is a look that Kelly Brook has down to a tee.

A woman with an hourglass figure often tries to hide her curves, but now’s the time to celebrate them! Make the most of your gorgeous body shape and flaunt it in this season’s latest trends. Opt for plain colours or geometric prints, and asymmetric shapes that show off your curves. Take a look at our suggestions.

Dresses

An empire line is perfect for those of us with wide hips as it cuts in at the waist and flows over your lower half, hiding any lumps and bumps.

There are so many different shapes that people are, I can’t put them all on here. However, for those who want more information on a particular shape, or would like to know what shape they are; either comment on the blog or email me through the site. if you would like to find out what shape you are please add your measurements to the message.

Before I say goodbye for today, I would like to share with you something that has been really playing on my mind. As we get older we become more interested in standing out, especially with our clothes, we don’t want to have what someone else has but  something  completely special, which sums  us up and ourcharacter. This aim is extremely difficult because the mainstream shops where we enjoy shopping e.g. Topshop, make it incredibly difficult to get something different that only belongs to you and no one else. This plays on my mind because recently it has become a constant struggle to find my individuality and freedom within fashion. This blog’s slogan is ‘Fashion is Freedom’, it’s the way we show our true selves, but how do we do this when everyone wears the same thing. My solution, which is probably the same for many others is to go vintage. We all know how hard it is to find good vintage in charity shops and the vintage shops can be so difficult to get to. But many don’t try vintage websites like this one: rokit.co.uk .I found rokit in Vogue and was amazed by the astounding prices. You have to have a bit of faith with the sizes, but all in all there are some incredible finds that will truly make you stand out.

For example, I am in love with this Orange, Black and White Tribal Tie-Front Blouse, which is only £20.00, check it out!

Remember, Fashion is Freedom

New Beginnings: Dress for your size- Pear

31 Aug

It feels like i haven’t blogged for ages, with the bank holiday weekend and getting ready for college. Time just slipped away from me. Today is officially the last day of August, and therefore the end of the Prolong the Summer Series. Don’t worry, I really feel like we have prolonged it enough. But before we go head in to Autumn, I feel like some tips should be given out to ensure everything you wear looks superb.

At the beginning of the academic year everyone wants to make a change with their life and start again new, whether we actually go through is another matter 😉 I feel like we do the same with our fashion, I find myself buying new clothes in order for my look to be completely transformed along with my personality. However, no matter how much I try I continuously  stumble with certain aspects of my fashion because I don’t consider how certain clothes will fit with my body shape. I see so many people stumble with this aspect- their clothes are fantastic and really original, you can tell they have style. But unfortunately their clothes don’t fit their shape and either engulf them and completely swamp them out or they just look out of proportion. Dressing for your shape is essential in fashion in order to get clothes looking their best.

Now that I have explained the necessity I can explain the different shapes.

Today is Pear Shaped.

Pear Shaped: Think Beyonce or Nicki Minaj

Pear shaped women have curvaceous hips, thighs and bottoms with smaller bust and shoulders.

If you are pear shaped you should look out for; frills on tops, layering on top, light colours with darker bottoms, sleeves or shoulder pads. All these things will happen balance you out.

Just adding a simple blazer or jacket to an outfit will draw more attention to your top half and less to your bottom.

View Item Cream Tailored Cropped Blazer

This blazer from owntherunway.com is being sold at £33.99, which is such a bargain and would really help balance out a pear shaped body.

A perfect outfit would be this one below. The skirt isn’t tight but flowy and therefore doesn’t draw too much attention to this part of the body.

It’s hard to tell people they should avoid certain clothes but for pear shaped women this just doesn’t look too great. Jeans with too much detail on the bum, as it draws attention to this area. Also, skinny jeans in light colours also draws attention to this area.

Remember to keep with your style but keep an eye on your shape.

Fashion is freedom.
