Outfit Post – Purple Rain

Purple was one of my wedding colours, which was no surprise as it is one of my favourite colours. My mini-me has tapped in on it as well; she adores the purple colour. But as much as I love the colour purple, and the song – Purple Rain by Prince, which inspired this post, I only have a few purple pieces and accessories in my wardrobe. Which makes no sense at all. How can you love a colour but no shop for pieces in it?

I plan on adding more purple items to my wardrobe. I am still not sure why I have only a few purple pieces but that is the reality. This shirt is a new wardrobe addition. I got it some months ago from the city of Kentucky in the US as a souvenir. It is one of those casual pieces I can just throw on when I am feeling too lazy to play dress up or too warm to think. The weather has been extremely uncomfortable warm for some time now. Most times I struggle to think of the most appropriate outfit to rock because of the heat.  How is the weather at your end?

The cream sandals are new as well. I got that while holidaying in the US. They are great for the weather and dead comfy too which is a plus.

I am currently wearing my hair in a fro and treating the hell out of it. I have been experimenting with some new natural hair products and I will be sharing them in an upcoming post. It is amazing how much my hair has grown in the last few weeks. It just shows whatever you pay attention to grows.

What are you paying attention to?

OOTD: A Little Black Dress

black-lace-dress-and-blazer-image

 

I love versatile pieces like this black lace dress right here. I got it some months ago and it has appeared on the blog before. And that is because I have mad love for it. I love it because it is super easy to style, very stylish and very versatile. I have worn it a few times, to various events, in various ways and in various seasons and it always works. It also feels good on the skin. The quality of this piece is second to none.

A little black dress is always a good investment. Every woman should have a few in her closet for various occasions.

It is all in the details when it comes to styling. Popping a blazer on this little black dress was no brainer really. It is getting colder. Autumn is definitely here and the layering season is so in vogue. I am loving it so far and I am making the most of wearing skirts and dresses without tights. I am not a huge fan of tights, I think they pretty much ruin most outfits, but they are Autumn/Winter essentials, so here is to me showing off my bare legs for as long as possible.

The beauty of a black dress is the freedom of styling with different colours if you like. Coral and blue look good on black like many other colours do, so I didn’t have to over think this outfit at all. Every piece fell into place naturally.

I am currently in search of a few pretty black dresses for the winter season, and I am glad to say I have found some very stylish pieces on here, and I can’t wait to shop them this season.

January Fashion Wishlist 2016

With the January sales in full swing, I am currently lusting after so many cool pieces and accessories, wishing I had an unlimited shopping budget. Almost everything has been seriously slashed, I am talking about 50% – 75% off the original prices, which is great news for us shopaholics. I know I said in my New Year Fashion & Style Resolutions, I will be reducing the amount of clothes I buy this year, because I currently have an insane amount in my wardrobe, but I also said I would be investing in high-end accessories, and playing around with my style a little, so a bit of shopping is required (wink wink).

So with my bank cards at the ready, here are the items on my wish list for January:

High Quality Sheep Leather Jacket with Zips £159 £119.99

Leather Jacket

This stylish Esprit leather jacket will fill a void in my wardrobe. Do you all remember the post I wrote about my Guess faux leather jacket? Well, I am still yet to replace my leather jacket, so grabbing this piece during the sale will be a good idea. I love the colour of the jacket a lot, and the whole zip detailing. It also looks like a good quality piece. In my head, I have styled this jacket up with pieces in my wardrobe already. I am eager to get my hands on this beauty.

 

Wool Blend Sweater Dress £55 £39.99

Sweater Dress

This Esprit wool blend sweater dress is right up my street. I can picture myself rocking this piece with black tights, knee-length boots and a scarf. I love the berry red colour, I have nothing like it in my wardrobe, and the wide scoop neckline is perfect for me. This sweater dress also comes in a taupe colour, but I prefer the berry red. Red is the colour of the season right?

 

Darci Stainless Steel Watch £259 £149

This Michael Kors stainless steel Darci watch is a beauty indeed. The Crystal embellished bezel gives the watch a stunning look. I also love the polished shine. This is on my watch list at the moment, my watch collection needs a new addition.

 

STEPHAN Wine High Heel £160 £119

This ankle high heel boots by Kurt Geiger is so easy on the eyes. I love the scarlet red block heel, reminds me of a Christian Louboutin. It will be nice to inject some more colour into my shoe collection this year, so I may be grabbing a pair.

 

Greenwich Black Mini Zip Tote Bag £205 £143

I am a DKNY lover so this eye candy had to be on my wish list. A classic handbag is always a good investment so it is no brainer really.  I love it.

 

What do you think of these items? Which is your favourite?
