OOTD: A Blogger Event Outfit

fashion-outfit-image

 

Have you told you how much I love my leopard print sandal? It first appeared here on the casual daywear look outfit post and I have worn it so many times now. It looks good with so many pieces in my wardrobe and it is dead easy to style. I get so many lovely compliments when I wear it, I guess that is because it stands out in a pretty way.

I wore this outfit to a fashion and beauty event in Chester over the weekend. I wanted a casual chic look so I went for aΒ  simple black top with a pair of skinny jeans, paired with cream sunnies, gold and brown bag and sandals. I like to black safe when it comes to press events so I usually for a black piece because it blends right in. You would hardly see me rocking colour at an event. Don’t ask me why….

Let me tell you just incase you were wondering, I love dark pieces and I think it always looks good but doesn’t usually stand out. I like looking good but not standing out at work related events (well not much) at events, and that is the reason why you won’t catch me wearing colour at press events.

The event was fun. It is my first press event this year and I had an amazing time. I was the only blogger invited to the event on that particular day so it felt kind of exclusive and I love that about it. I met some amazing people and I am going to tell you all about in the next couple of days, so be on the lookout for the post.

Rosie Huntington Whiteley Covers Harper’s Bazaar September 2016

The beautiful and elegant Rosie Huntington Whiteley Covers Harper’s Bazaar September 2016, and it is a fab cover. I really like the whole white and grey theme going on here. It kind of reminds me of the autumn/winter season, which I am crazy about.

I got this issue some weeks ago, and I must confess, it was a fab read – I finished it in 1 sitting. I have always been interested in Rosie Huntington Whiteley’s career, right from her Victoria’s Secret days.Β  At 29 years old, the supermodel is doing very well for herself with her brand collaborations with M&S, Uggs Australia and Paige Denim. Her business acumen and drive is what stands Rosie Huntington Whiteley out from the rest. No wonder she is also one of Britain’s most successful supermodel.

Speaking on her Autograph collaboration with M&S –

‘Since I was young, I’ve always bought vintage night-slips and lace boleros,’ she says. ‘And Marks & Spencer is this iconic British high-street store that everybody in the UK has some form of connection with. My mum took me bra shopping there for the first time as a teenager.’

‘I think everybody is so used to celebrity endorsement that feels inauthentic, but I’ve worked for lingerie brands since I was 17,’ she says. ‘It’s really important when you align yourself with a brand that it’s genuine. You have to look at the bigger picture. It’s not just transactional, it’s not just about taking a job and making money and moving on to the next thing. It’s about: what does this mean for me? Where can this go?’

I am yet to try on a piece from her Autograph collection but I would love to. I have heard so many good things about the collection.

Do you own any of the pieces from the collection? What do you think of this cover?

Common Bra Problems

Corset Image

 

Every woman has to deal with an annoying bra problem every now and again. I know I do. From finding the right size to finding the right design and style. The bra problems never end. It changes as our body changes. I struggled a lot with my lingerie in general especially during pregnancy. My boobs were growing at an alarmingly rate, and I got sick and tired of buying a new bra every few weeks. Thankfully, all that is a thing of the past but I do still miss my pregnancy boobs, lol.

Here are some ways of dealing with the common bra problems you may be facing:

 

Wrong size

A recent survey has shown that 60% of women are walking around wearing the wrong size of bra. Are you one of them? The best way to ensure you are wearing the right size is to get measured. Debenhams and M&S are great places to get measured professionally for free.

 

Straps that dig

Make sue your bras come with adjustable straps so that you can alter the fit. The straps should not dig in or fall off your shoulders.

 

Lack of bras

You should have different bras in various designs for different your outfits. If you can’t afford too many, the minimum you should aim for is 2 blacks, 2 whites, 2 nudes, and an extra 2 in any colour or design you like. That way you never run out of bras to wear. Also, go for bras with straps you can take off, and change into various styles to fit your outfit.

 

Visible bras

Your bras should not be visible, unless this is intentional. When wearing sheer clothes, go for underwear in flesh tones that match your skin colour, not the outfit.

 

Small boobs

Balcony bras flatter small boobs the most because they provide an enhanced neckline with excellent uplift. Half-cup bras with pads at the sides also flatter small boobs.

 

Big boobs

A bra with a thick band will support big boobs better because they often provide better support.
