The beautiful and elegant Rosie Huntington Whiteley Covers Harper’s Bazaar September 2016, and it is a fab cover. I really like the whole white and grey theme going on here. It kind of reminds me of the autumn/winter season, which I am crazy about.

I got this issue some weeks ago, and I must confess, it was a fab read – I finished it in 1 sitting. I have always been interested in Rosie Huntington Whiteley’s career, right from her Victoria’s Secret days.Β  At 29 years old, the supermodel is doing very well for herself with her brand collaborations with M&S, Uggs Australia and Paige Denim. Her business acumen and drive is what stands Rosie Huntington Whiteley out from the rest. No wonder she is also one of Britain’s most successful supermodel.

Speaking on her Autograph collaboration with M&S –

‘Since I was young, I’ve always bought vintage night-slips and lace boleros,’ she says. ‘And Marks & Spencer is this iconic British high-street store that everybody in the UK has some form of connection with. My mum took me bra shopping there for the first time as a teenager.’

‘I think everybody is so used to celebrity endorsement that feels inauthentic, but I’ve worked for lingerie brands since I was 17,’ she says. ‘It’s really important when you align yourself with a brand that it’s genuine. You have to look at the bigger picture. It’s not just transactional, it’s not just about taking a job and making money and moving on to the next thing. It’s about: what does this mean for me? Where can this go?’

I am yet to try on a piece from her Autograph collection but I would love to. I have heard so many good things about the collection.

Do you own any of the pieces from the collection? What do you think of this cover?

OOTD: Chi Chi London Dress

Black Lace Dress Image

Hey peoples, how are we? It is a bank holiday here in the UK, and I am making the most of the break. I have a spa booked for later in the day, and I really cannot wait.

On this outfit of the day (ootd) post, I fell in love with this Chi Chi Divya Dress by Chi Chi London as soon as I laid eyes on it. I love how chic and elegant it looks. This piece definitely stands out in my wardrobe. I really like the blue embroidered mesh detailing,Β and the padded bust. This dress is so flattering; it was true love at first sight!

I like dresses like this because they are so easy to style, and they look glam instantly. I went for an all black look, with a touch of pink and gold for some colour, and I am glad i did. Excuse the picture heavy post, I just couldn’t get enough…..

This pink bag is also a new addition in my wardrobe and I am loving it. I love how compact it is, and the colour is fab for season. I am a bag girl, so I like to add to my bag collection every now and again. I was lucky to grab this bag on sale at House of Fraser (you know I never buy anything full-price, wink wink).

Fashion and the Environment

Fashion Tips Image

 

The older I get, the more I start to think about the environment, and how to consume less energy. Back in the days, I use to just go with the flow, but I am happy to say I am now wiser, and I now think twice about how my fashion choices affect the environment. The ethical fashion way is the way to go. Here are 3 ways I consider the environment, as far as fashion life is concerned:

 

I wash at 30 degrees

I wash all our clothes at 30 degrees. Washing at 30 degrees saves 40% of energy, and my clothes come out looking clean and fresh, so it is a win-win for me. Plus, my clothes last longer when I wash with no so hot water. This greener option is good for my wardrobe, wallet and the environment.

 

No tumble drying

I was atΒ  party the other day, having a conversation with some ladies, and 1 of them complained about not being allowed to use a tumble dryer, while holidaying at a friend’s place, and I realised so many people still tumble dry their clothing, and I think it is so crazy. Apart from the fact that a tumble dryer consumes a lot of energy, it damages clothes most of the time – they shrink and look funny. The sun and wind do a far better job at drying your clothes, or you could just pop the damp clothes on a rail indoors, with a window open and leave it for a few hours.

I honestly cannot remember the last time I used a tumble dryer. I have lost far too many clothes using that. A long spin and popping the damp clothes on a rail does the job for me most of the time.

 

Give back

I donate my old clothes and accessories to charities quite regularly. I try to do a clear out at the end of each season, so I decide on what to keep for the next season, and what to give away. I also sell fairly used clothes and accessories on eBay. It is my own way of giving back to those in need and saving the environment. Speaking of eBay, I haven’t had the time to list anything on the website, and I have many things that need to be sold. I am hoping to get back into it when I get less busy.

 

These are some of the ways I consider the environment when it comes to my fashion life. What are your thoughts? Do you do any of these?
