Fashion Wishlist March 2016

The temperature is finally rising! We have had quite a few sunny spells in my little village, and I am eager to start rocking some stylish spring outfits. I have quite a few fashion pieces on my mind, and as usual, I get to tell you all about them. I am looking to add some new pieces to my spring/summer wardrobe this year, but I have a very strict clothing budget I need to stick to, so I will be buying majority of my pieces in the sales.

Here are some of the pieces I am currently looking forward to rock this season:

 

Vero Moda Light Jacket £55 £44

I fell in love with this beautiful jacket as soon as I laid eyes on it. I have nothing like this in my wardrobe, so this will be a fab addition. It will be great to rock this now that the spring season is approaching. I am in love with the biker look and the oversize collar. I can only imagine how it would look on me.

 

Vero Moda Jumper £30 £22.50

This piece is so stylish, the cute belt takes the jumper to another level of style. All I will need to style this beauty up is a pair of skinny jeans or leggings, and ankle boots or high-heeled sandals, and I am good to go. I am yet to have any Vero Moda piece and I have heard quite a lot about the brand, so I may very well be getting this.

 

Lipsy High Heel Ankle Boots £80 £45

Where do I start with this shoe candy? I love the print design, the heel is simply perfect and ankle boots are great for transitioning into spring. This is definitely on my fashion radar. Love love love.

DKNY Jitney Ceramic Watch £229 £114.50

If you know me well enough, then you will know I am a DKNY lover. I think their designs are very chic and stylish, and quite affordable compared to other top designers. This watch will be a nice addition to my ever-growing watch collection. Watches are one of the things I love to collect.

 

DKNY Shoulder Bag £133 £94

DKNY Shoulder Bag

I run a lot of errands over the weekend, and most times I am with my kids, so I like to have my hands free incase I need to chase after one or both of them, which happens most of the time (they keep me fit). That is where shoulder bags come in very handy. The fact that I can have all the important bits kept safely across my shoulder is great on those busy days when I cannot be bothered to carry a bag, or when I am exploring on holiday, and want to move around freely.

This chic DKNY shoulder ticks all the boxes so I may be getting it.

So there you have it, the items are I am currently lusting over this March.

Thanks for reading and have an amazing day.

Top 10 Fashionable Characters From Movies

The fashion conscious among us have often chosen to draw inspiration from Hollywood movies, and this is largely down to the stylish attire of many of these movie characters. Check out these 10 characters below:
1. Mookie
do-the-right-thing-spike-lee
Sometimes fashion is timeless, sometimes it captures a particular period – as is the case with Spike Lee’s character from his own 1989 filmDo the Right Thing. Mookie wears the clothes of the Brooklyn streets during the late 1980s, namely outsized basketball shirts, shorts and sneakers, and it was a look many young men wanted at the time, many still do today.
2. Patrick Bateman

a-complete-guide-to-the-mens-fashion-in-american-psycho

This murderous yuppie from the movie – American Psycho (1999) is not a character to aspire to, but his wardrobe was something else. Sporting immaculately tailored dark pinstripe suit and shirt, he exuded the outward trappings of success.
3. Jules Winnfield
A well-tailored black suit and white shirt combo is a classic look, and few have looked cooler clad this way than Samuel L Jackson’s hitman from 1994’s Pulp Fiction. His overall look vaguely suggested the 1970s without conforming to any exact period, just like the film itself.
4. Cher Horowitz

This dizzy but sweet character from the 1995 comedy hit – Clueless was played by Alicia Silverstone, who became a fashion icon to young girls everywhere – with her knee socks, a- line miniskirts and many other stylish 90s outfits.

5. Elle Woods

Elle Woods, portrayed by Reese Witherspoon, achieved something similar in Legally Blonde (2001). Her character was the same mix of dizzy and clever, while her outfits ranged from pink to more pink. Not everyone can pull this look off but it suited the character perfectly.
6. Jacob
This character from 2011’s Crazy Stupid Love, played by Ryan Gosling, was a ‘player’ who devoted his life to picking up women, thus his envible wardrobe. Sporting tailored suits and dark cashmere sweaters he certainly succeeded in this aim.
7. James Bond

There has rarely been a time when 007 didn’t look perfect, but 2006’s Casino Royale, was a highpoint, despite the new, gritty feel of the movie. His casual outfits included shirts from Sunspel Riviera, plus those infamous blue La Perla trunks, he could have easily played these off playing mobile casino sites like Mobile Casino Australia, while his formal outfits included a classic tuxedo with Turnbull and Asser shirt.
8. The Motorcycle Boy
This enigmatic character from 1980s movie – Rumble Fish avoided the cliché biker look of jeans and black leather jacket in favour of suit jacket and trousers, shirt and no tie. This marked the character out as an individual, while still looking cool.
9. Carrie Bradshaw

The heroine of Sex and the City was permanently clad in high fashion, from Manolo Blahnik shoes to Prada dresses, which again made her a character that fashion lovers aspired to be like.
10. Zoolander
Zoolander
Perhaps the single greatest fashion icon of all time is this male model portrayed by Ben Stiller in 2001’s Zoolander. Few could carry of his outfits – which included a leopard skin suit and bag – but we would all like to be able to.
With Zoolander 2 now out in cinemas, it is clearly time for us all to raise our fashion game and meet his challenge.
