Style Icon – Céline Dion

I have been a huge fan of Céline Dion for as long as I can remember. Her voice is so strong and amazing. I remember having all her albums back in the day. This legend has gone a bit quiet in the last couple of years but her music will live on forever and so will her amazing fashion sense. This style icon has an amazing wardrobe with stylish pieces and accessories and she knows how to wear them.

For those who do not know who Céline Dion is, she is a multiple award-winning French-Canadian singer known all over the world for her amazing voice. One of my favourite songs from her is – My Heart will go on. I love that song so much.

I started paying attention to Céline Dion’s personal style some years ago. If I was to put a date on it, I would say in the summer of 2016. I hear the person behind her new look is a fashion stylist known as Law Roach. This stylist is also the brain behind Zendaya’s amazing style, so I guess Dion is in good hands.

Céline Dion has an amazing body shape so most pieces tend to look great on her. She also knows how best to match her pieces and accessories, and has an amazing carriage.

I know many celebrities with a huge wardrobe filled with designer items and have some of the best stylists at their disposal, but with all the resources available, these celebrities never look good. So it is really not about what they have but what they do with what they have.

What I love about Céline Dion is the fact that she can look glamorous wearing almost anything. She can leave her house wearing pieces and accessories from the 90s, and look amazing. That is what I call a Style Icon. Someone who wears her clothes and not the other way round. It is hard to believe this stylish woman is 50 years old already. She could easily pass for a woman in her 40s.

 

What do you think of Céline Dion as a style icon?

Outfit Post – Fashion Bloggers Please Dress Warm

It is my birthday in a few days and I am looking forward to celebrating the new year in my own way. Being a January baby means I get to start the new year with a birthday and align my goals to suit my new stage in life. I am still in the process of styling my birthday outfit in my head (it has to be perfect since I am a fashion blogger right?), not really decided what I would wear or what I would do on the day. But I am sure ideas would crop up closer to the date, so look out for a birthday outfit post soon.

I wore this outfit some weeks ago. The Silver Grey Long Oversized Coat With Faux Fur Hood is a new wardrobe addition. I am so in love with it. It is the right length and it feels so warm and comfy. The faux fur trim hood is an added touch of beauty and the puffy fit is great for layering this winter.

Dressing warm is so important in the winter and we fashion bloggers need to promote that a lot more. I remember when I initially started blogging, I came across a few fashion blogs that would show off outfit posts wearing summery pieces in the middle of winter, and I thought it was so unrealistic and misleading. 9 times out of 10, these bloggers would pose outside for a few minutes to get the photos taken and get back inside to wear something more sensible. Like who walks around in a mini skirt and crop top in the winter months?

I don’t play with the cold weather. I dress warm and make sure the kids are dressed warm too. So I find it crazy to see many fashion bloggers still doing this. Fashion should be stylish and comfy. You should not have to choose one over the other, when you can have both. So my fellow fashion bloggers, please think twice before you step outside to be photographed in yet another revealing outfit in the middle of winter. It looks very silly and dangerous. Health is wealth, remember that.

How Fashion Bloggers are Democratizing the Fashion World

There was a time in fashion history when what was fashionable was only known to the elite aka rich and famous. When it was released they were the only ones who could afford those new styles. So much has changed since then and thankfully more people are able to get in touch with what’s in vogue.

Styles are no longer something beyond reach. Not only that, we can see the latest designs even before they hit the stores.

I believe democratizing fashion has helped evolve people’s orientation to what is fashionable. I also believe that it gives room for creativity. And as more pieces flood in we get exposed to the endless possibilities of ways we can mix and match those pieces to create something we call our own.

When I sit back to analyse how far fashion has come I see a pattern being revealed. I realized that we fashion bloggers play a very important role in democratizing fashion. We follow our love and passion for fashion, and have become one of the quickest means of disseminating and declaring what is termed fashionable. Just to give you a clear picture of how we are able to achieve this, here are some things that will interest you.

 

Fashion bloggers get you connected with what is trending

We are dedicated to informing our readers about what’s trending now in the fashion industry. By keeping our readers informed, we help them keep up with the latest styles and trends, and what’s happening in the world of fashion.

 

Fashion bloggers want to share what’s happening in the fashion industry

The reason why fashion was not accessible to all, was because only a certain set of people were invited to fashion shows and were aware of the upcoming designs and trends. Fashion shows were also not streamed online so there was no way for the general public to get involved.

As time passed by and things started to change, thanks to fashion bloggers and social media. Fashion bloggers not only share what’s trending on the runway, they also give tips, hacks and affordable alternatives that will help their readers mimic what’s trending in a way that is the most affordable.

Fashion bloggers are the voice of consumers

We are so fortunate to witness an era where our opinions about fashion matter. We fashion bloggers are so much closer to consumers, we know what the people are looking for. Our influence is so strong that fashion designers and retailers tend to listen. What this means is that fashion bloggers have turned out to be the voice of the voiceless.

Fashion is no longer one way traffic. We are able to voice out what consumers are agitating for, which gives fashion designers a clear picture of what the people want.
