The Street Style Bus Event

I had the privilege of attending the Broughton Street Style Bus Event over the weekend, and I am glad to say I had a good time. If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police long enough, you would know how picky I am when it comes to blogger/press events. I get many invites on a weekly basis to various events around the country and even within Europe, and it would be impossible to attend them all. But I have decided earlier on, on how I would run my blog as a business, which means I can’t just attend events just because I am sent an invite. I usually decline 99% of the invites because they are not worth the time or effort. But this event, I couldn’t decline and good I didn’t because it was so worth it!

It was on a Saturday which was brilliant day for me to attend an event. And it was at Broughton Retail Shopping Park, which is quite local to me. It was my first time at the shopping park and I was so impressed with how big it was. The shopping park houses all the major stores and eating spots – Boots Store, Nandos, Costa Coffee, Clarks, Nike Store, to name a few. You will definitely be spoilt for choice shopping here. And there was free parking with thousands of spaces,which was a plus.

The event was pretty much inside a bus, with the fashion and beauty master classes done in a tent just outside the red bus. There was a lot going on, with the free flow of cakes and drinks, and goody bags. There was so no dull moment at all.

Various pieces from different brands were lined up inside the bus for everyone to go through. There were also opportunities for free massages and manicures, which was fantastic. But the best part for me were the fashion and makeup classes. The celebrity stylist – JP from Effort Made, introduced the trends and pieces to look for in the stores this season, and how best to style them. One piece you should be looking out for in the stores this season is The Bomber Jacket – You will definitely be seeing a lot of them around. Will you be shopping for it?

The makeup class by celebrity makeup artist – Fiona Florczak, was full of many makeup tips. She dished out tips on skincare, how to achieve the smoky eye look and the perfect eyebrows; I even had my eyebrows done by her. She is super talented. I learnt so many beauty tips and got some ideas of a couple of handy makeup products to try out, so I will be updating my makeup bag real soon. And that means more product reviews posts for you to read, yay!

Celebrity Style: Khloe Kardashian vs Lupita Nyong’o in Gucci

Who-Wore-It-Better-Khloe-Kardashian-Lupita-Nyongo-Gucci-Spring-2016-Floral-Ensemble-900x1200

Another day, another celebrity style post. Today, it is all about who wore this Gucci floral outfit better? Khloe Kardashian or Lupita Nyong’o? Both ladies are rocking similar versions of the Gucci Spring/Summer 2016 floral piece. Khloe Karadashian has on a Gucci floral shirt dress, styled by celebrity stylist, Monica Rose, while Lupita Nyong’o has on the same shirt plus a matching skirt also by Gucci.

I am on the fence with both looks, I am not quite sure which I prefer, but I know for a fact that I am not a fan of both looks. Khloe was obviously going for a sexier outfit with the messy hair, bare legs and sandals, and it works as she has the body to show off, but if I was to style her, I would pick a different pair of sandals. A simple pair will not compete for attention with the busy floral dress, and the outfit will look more effortless. I will also change the hairstyle, I am not a fan of that at all.

With Lupita, I guess she was going for the full-on floral look, which is very bold and very stylish when styled correctly, but she got this look so wrong. Lupita should have gone for a mini or midi skirt, to show off a bit of skin. This maxi skirt on her looks too dowdy and old-fashioned. She looks like a much older woman dressed like this. A shorter skirt would have looked divine on her. I am not a fan of the pink shoes she has on either. They make her look so frumpy. A pair of black strappy sandals would have looked amazing on her.

I guess if I was forced to pick 1, I would go for Khloe’s look, because it looks easier to re-style. Which look do you prefer and why? Drop me a comment please.

Thanks for reading.

 

The Style Icon – Brad Goreski

Brad Goreski, the celebrity fashion style and TV personality, is the style icon for this week and he deserves the slot. His outfits are so him, so unique, and he looks fabulous in them. I have been following Brad Goreski’s style since his days in the Rachel Zoe’s project show and I am still amazed at how stylish he is. He is not afraid of colour which is a breath of fresh air. Brad Goreski goes for bright coloured pieces and he styles them beautifully.

I admire his style and he is a true style icon. Have a look at some his pictures below showcasing his style and do not be afraid of colour.
