Embrace Yellow

Do you think that sometimes we dress the way we feel? We listen music that reflects our feeling. We make our surroundings as reflection of our surroundings.

Since my last year low point moment, I want to feel better and enjoy my life more. I want to be grateful and content. I want to choose joy.

I have called it the Joy project .

It is a process, but I believe that it is the little things that will help.

I know a girl that is obese with colour yellow. Every time she wants to buy an item of clothing, it has to be yellow. I actually lost count of the amount of time she told me that she bought a new yellow item.  Now I got nothing against the colour but truth be told I do not have much of yellow things in my life. I actually adapted a simple colour palette these past years. You have to be black, white, navy, grey or burgundy for me add you to my wardrobe. But how about  a change. Let’s be open to something new. Yellow is the colour of optimism and and amusement. As the colour of the sunlight, it is commonly associated with warmth. In China, it s the colour of happiness, glory and wisdom.

Coincidentally enough, yellow is also one of this year’s spring trends. And although I don’t always follow every fashion trends ( will have to write a blog post about that), I want to follow that one. So far I got myself a yellow dress and a yellow skirt. I also regularly try to buy some daffodils. Daffodils are one of the symbol in Wales so you get a good bundle for £1.

So here is a quick snipet of inspiration of what I found in some of my favourite fashion website while I am  working on my little joy project.

God bless x

Fashion Files: Winter coats

Hey there

So this week is a fashion post 🙂

I have not done one in a while and since I have been thinking about buying a new winter coat, I just wanted to share some of my online wishlist. In a perfect world, I would like to buy them all but my wallet does not allow such thing. But one can dream, right?

The temperatures have been dropping and although most of the UK weather is rainy, the wind has been crazy these days. So it is really important to have an appropriate cover up. It is really hard to stay stylish during cold weather but it is more important to keep warm. So some of these coats will be maybe more on the ‘looking good” side,  and some will be more practical but I love them all.

2.  The Puffer (New Look)

The Spring Edit

Hello

Belated Post

Yesterday was officially the first day of Summer in the UK. The sales have started in most of the shops. I have not done a Season Edit so I am doing one now. I still feel like it is Spring anyway. The truth is in the UK we do not really get a real summer. The weather is always hard to define. It shifts pretty quickly and it mostly windy, wet and cloudy. However, there are days where the sun decides to pop out.

So although it is safe to put the coat and heavy scarf away. We still cover up a bit. I do have to say that Spring and Autumn are my favourite seasons. They are both very mild, it is never too hot or too cold: Happy medium. On that note here are some items I will or have bought this season. All are found in the high street stores and affordable prices.

A little Fashion Show

Hi there

Long time i know…I am not proud of myself for not putting out any content for the last months, but external elements did not allow me to be as consistent as i wanted to. However, it’s all good. Here is a little post.

I recently went to an interesting little Fashion Show in Regent Hall on Oxford Street, London. It was a charity show featuring pieces designed by Aleona Isakova, a Christian costume designer from Russia.

Each of her  hand made pieces represented a Bible theme (The Beatitudes, The Birth and Resurrection of Christ) and christian poetry was read throughout the show with dramatised music. The collection was much more costume fashion but I still find it very inspiring.

So here is a couple of pictures of the show…Enjoy x

Autumn Edit

Autumn is here.

A busy September has just ended.  September has always marked for me another beginning in the year. I believe it is mainly because of school and university.   Academic year usually begin in September. The Fashion year also start in September. Fashion weeks were held all over the world. It always start with New York and designers presented to the world their visions and trends for next year. So although I did not attend any Fashion Week (I hope I will one day cue bucket list), I picked up articles   from Magazines and internet blogs to see what were the new trends. It is always good to see what the designers have been working on and what inspired them to create their collections. Fashion is art. SS16 was marked with Khaki, nautical, hippy luxury bohemian, romantic lace, eclectic patchwork and metallic. There were will be sheer dresses, jumpsuits and kimonos. I cannot wait.

But right now it is Autumn and in the shops it is all seventies fashion: print, fringe, suede and, bootleg shapes and fake fur waistcoats.  So I did a little online browsing of some of my favourite High Street websites and below are my new love list for the autumn season. I do not necessarily follows trends but I have chosen some items that I think can be viewed as season essentials.

If you want something less heavy, an jacket, trench and sleeveless duster mac can also be good outerwear.
