The strapless bra hunt…


I used to swear by the ultimate strapless by Wonderbra but after getting slightly “older” and my body has changed with it it actually gives me “rolls” on my back and this is not something I like.

I’m curvatious but still don’t think this should happen.

So off I went on a quest for a new strapless bra. I have a few dresses that require it so I had to bite the bullet.

I have to say I tried about 15 different ones ranging from 32DD to 32E with the latter being my recommended size after a fitting.

I ended up going for a 32DD (70E eur) sadly however I had to buy a white one which is the most useless colour you can have but when they don’t stock in any other colour what are you going to do.


I do however for this reason recommend staying close to the staff in the lingerie area and fitting room so they can help you. Have regular bra fittings and remember that different styles will fit differently just like any type of garment.

Also bras don’t live forever! The elastic will wear off and they will lose their function. About every 6 months you will need a new one (if it’s regularly used) if you alternate them then just keep an eye on the fit.

Good luck!

Afternoon tea at Bea’s Cake Boutique…


I had my very first afternoon tea today in the very cute Bea’s Cake Boutique with my Swedish friend Malin.

We called in before hand and ordered vegetarian menu mostly because we didn’t want everything on the already set menu.

However the choices were amazing! And with some bubbly on the side it was perfect.

I personally would’ve wanted a much bigger range of teas but maybe this is standard I don’t know.

It was a sweet Patel interior and this particular branch was at the edge of Baker Street.

Very much recommended, I would also like to try an afternoon tea in Claridge’s or Dorchester for the sake of really dressing for the part!

One step at a time 🙂

Vintage Dior…


I don’t need designer things because I believe you can find amazing things without the price of the name.

But I have always had a small thing for Dior, and my “to go to” type bag is a clutch. So when I found this beautiful Vintage Dior clutch for £124 and also after sleeping on it, I just had to!

I found it at a website called Vestiaire Collective where you can find pre owned designer items. The beauty about this website as well is that they make sure it’s authentic items. And if the team of specialists aren’t sure they will contact in this instance the house of Dior to make sure it’s real.

Loving my new gem!

Pamela Anderson…


I really love this outfit on Pamela Anderson, LBD with a subtle little cover up.

She’s toned down her usually heavy eye make up and she looks absolutely amazing!

Got my glamour on…


I feel the most comfortable in either a dress or a skirt with a nice top.

My struggle is to get down to casual with denims and trouser looks.

This is something I’m working on as not everyday or occasion is a LBD moment…

Sunglasses/Dress – Kate Spade

Skirt on top of dress – Primark

Watch – Kate Spade

Bracelet – Forever21
To be continued.

I am a very big fan of the pencil skirt and this because it is such an easy item to dress up and down.

You’ll have different lengths and cuts to fit different body shapes. 

One of my favourite ways to style the pencils skirt is like above, of it’s high summer I might swap the t-shirt for a tank top.

Swap the bag and shoes to turn it into that afterwork/evening look and add some bling to top it off.

Easy peasy 😉

Inspiration for the gentlemen…

Casual...

 

Summer is upon us and I would love to see our gentlemen find their personal style.

Have fun with accessories, hats for instance are so underestimated and such a good staple piece, bring those loafers out but unless you’re dressing for a trend, ditch the socks. A shoulder bag/satchel is a must have and try to find one with a beautifully distressed leather to create that “worn in” look.

I white shirt and a simple pair of chinos always work and never goes out of style, the only thing thats tends to come and go is the colour of the chinos, the brighter pop of colours come and go but a nice pair of Navy, khaki or rust colour ones are always a good investment.

And don’t forget those sunglasses to shield your eyes from those sun rays, a classic Aviator style is a good choice but here it’s worth a bit of research to see what shape best suits you.

 

Happy shopping to all you gentlemen out there!
