  4. Denim Frenzy At Madewell

    July 24, 2016 by barbara

    Denim is a versatile material that does not go out of fashion and is something you can wear throughout the year.   Who doesn’t like Denim eh? The apparel can be casual and also transformed into statement pieces with just some added accessories.   Dark denim jeans is a wardrobe staple.  Style it with a white button-on shirt for office and add on a statement necklace and you are good to go for dinner.  Just spotted some lovely denim pieces at Madewell.

  5. Guidelines For Wearing Statement Necklace

    July 20, 2016 by barbara

    If you have been reading my blog, you would know how much I love statement necklaces. Yes, I am a self-proclaim statement necklace addict.   This accessory is the best way to bring life to an outfit.  Nothing is easier than completing your look with a bold, striking and attention-grabbing piece of statement necklace.  All it takes is one piece of accessory to make your outfit stand out.

    Do remember of course that the statement necklaces which are usually chunky and bold are best worn with simple clothes.  Avoid patterns and embellishments such as sequins when wearing a bold piece of statement necklace.  A simple white top with denim is ideal for a big and colourful statement necklace.  A little black dress or a black top is the perfect match for attention-grabbing pieces.

    For a simple and polish look, pearls are the best.  It is also advisable not to wear a pair of big earrings when you have a statement necklace on as it could be too overwhelming.   Always remember to match your accessories and clothes wisely.

  8. How To Wear Baggy Tunics Trend

    Prom Dresses London

    There are certain fashions that many, including me, would avoid as they are not very flattering to the body.  The latest trend seems to be the baggy tunics or oversize blouses.  They are so popular right now that I want to get one for myself.

    However, there are ways that these pieces can work for practically everyone.  The baggy tunics should be paired with slim trousers or leggings.  Wearing a skirt with the tunic is a big no-no because that would add volume to the body. If you feel that the baggy top is making you feel shapeless, you can throw on a belt or a big statement necklace.  The belt can define a waist and the necklace will affect the way the top falls over the bust.   So how do you like to wear your baggy tunics?

    July 8, 2016 by barbara

    Yes, you read correctly. The Stirrups Legging is back in trend and thanks to Marni for giving it a reappearance.   Soon you will be seeing stirrups everywhere.  I have a feeling that the trend is going to be massive this Fall.  Stirrup Legging was very popular back in the late 80’s and early 90’s, during the fitness era.  Remember Jane Fonda workout?  Have you worn a pair before?
