Styling A White Shirt

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for a while then you would know all about my love for designer items. I like to mix high street  with high-end designer pieces and accessories to create my look, and it works for me. So you can imagine my excitement when the lovely people at McArthurGlen invited me to shop at their designer outlet in Cheshire last Saturday. If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, why don’t you?), you would have seen my updates while shopping at the designer outlet. I had an amazing time as you can imagine. Shopping is what I like to do, I can even do it in my sleep…

This shopping event was centered around styling the iconic white shirt. McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Cheshire Oaks teamed up with iconic tailoring brand – Brooks Brothers to launch an exciting pop-up concept: The White Shirt Bar. I visited this exclusive custom designed airstream. With over 200sqft of space, the 31ft airstream has been refurbished to create a unique, one-off shopping experience. For those who do not know, Brook Brothers founded in 1818, is one of the most iconic American brands and the oldest clothier in the United States, having dressed 39 of the
44 United States Presidents and being the first to introduce the concept of button-down collar shirts and ready-made men’s suits to the American market.

Today Brooks Brothers has 280 stores across 23 countries and 5 continents and is heavily engaged in the world of film and TV, having created all of the men’s costumes for the 2013 production of The Great Gatsby starring one of my favourite actors – Leonardo DiCaprio, costumes for every season of the popular TV series – Mad Men as well as many other film and TV productions.

The White Shirt Bar would be available at Cheshire Oaks for the whole of October so it is definitely worth checking out.

I was gifted a white shirt by Brooks Brothers, a goody bag with all sorts of goodies and yummies including some amazing white shirt cookies by Corporate Cakery, and a generous gift card to get pieces and accessories in the designer outlet to style the white shirt. I am a regular at the Cheshire Oaks designer outlet so I knew my way around, but I decided to hit the shops early as per my shopping smart tips. After going from shop to shop, I finally settled on the pieces you see below. I had a certain look in my head and I am glad I achieved it.

The white shirt has an amazing fit and screams quality from a distance. I also found it very easy to style. I got a few other pieces and accessories I will be showing off in upcoming outfit posts for your viewing pleasure, so keep your eyes peeled.

OOTD: Lace in Peplum

Thank God the weekend is here at last, and I can show off this outfit of the day aka ootd: lace in peplum. This week has been so hard. I am extremely happy today is Saturday and I get to put my feet up. You have no idea how excited I am. It has been an extremely busy week with me juggling my life, blog and my freelance jobs. I am thankful to be this busy but I think I need to schedule in some proper ‘me’ time so I don’t breakdown, lol.

The thing about working for yourself is if you do not know where to draw the line, you will be working every minute you are awake, and I mean serious working – the fastest way to collapse….

I have decided to start taking my wellbeing a little more seriously, for the sake of my health and my career. I am not useful to anyone if I fall ill so easy does it going forward. I am going to relax a little and find some time to unwind without any gadget around me, like a holiday digital detox. So no laptops, phones, tablets or camera. I may schedule that for this weekend at some point, so don’t be too surprised if no new post is uploaded until Monday.

Enough of me moaning, back to the fun stuff now, I wore this outfit some days ago. The sandals and top are new wardrobe additions, and I adore them both.

The pink crochet lace peplum top is an excellent fit. I love the lace design and the pink colour is fab. It is a chic piece. I love the fact that I can style it in various ways.

The khaki tie-up suede block heel sandals is also fabulous. I love the tie-up design and the gold accent heel, which is a perfect height for me. The khaki colour is also pretty and new colour in my wardrobe. I can see myself rocking these two for many years to come.
