OOTD: Springtime Staples

It is so windy outside as I write this post, but the fact remains, it is springtime (or is it?), so time to get the Springtime Staples out of the storage and grab some new pieces from the shops, if your wardrobe is in need of a spring fashion update.

I am yet to get my spring/summer clothes out of storage. I plan to sort that out in the next few days, hopefully before the bank holiday weekend next week. At the moment, this confused British weather is really messing with me. It has been up and down as usual this week, dead warm on some days, and painfully cold on some other days, like today. I hear it even snowed in Scotland some days ago.  Can you imagine that in April?

Light layering is the only way to survive spring time fashion, with the ups and downs of the weather. Thankfully, the fashion gurus saw this coming and got us prepared.

 

 

The crazy weather makes dressing up so hard sometimes. You never know how the day would really turn out, so you never know what to wear on such days. It is good to have transitional pieces like what I have on at the ready for when you need it.

Everything I have on here is from my existing wardrobe, no new pieces. I take pride in styling pieces and accessories from my wardrobe in different ways. It gives me joy when I get maximum wear from pieces.

Sam Rollinson Covers Harper’s Bazaar UK March 2017

Sam Rollinson covers Harper’s Bazaar UK March 2017 issue, and she looks loely. This issue was inspired by by the most beautiful of the new-season collections, the magazine’s 150th anniversary year, as well as the glories of Bazaar‘s extraordinary heritage.

I always love Harper’s Bazaar Magazine covers because they are always full of colour and very distinct. They usually stand out for the right reasons on the newsstands, and this cover is not different. I love the background of the cover. The photographer – Agata Pospieszynska, and stylist – Charlie Harrington, braved the elements to shoot Sam Rollinson on a Scottish clifftop at Dunnottar Castle, and Erik Madigan Heck, Leith Clark and Madison Stubbington faced the wind and waves of Botany Bay on the south coast of England, capturing the spirit of the place. I can see why they went through so much trouble to get the shots with this amazing background. It looks so beautiful.

I have never heard of Sam Rollinson until this Harper’s Bazaar cover, so I went digging. I found out that she is a 21-year-old British model, who has appeared in Burberry, DKNY, Balenciaga, NEXT and many other campaigns.

On how she found herself modelling:

“I’d just turned into a teenager and she decided I was allowed to enjoy shopping with her now.” A month later, they travelled down to London to visit the Select model agency. It was “a bit of a weird experience. I had absolutely no idea [about modelling].”

I like both covers but I prefer the subscribers cover above because Sam has a big smile on, and this cover looks a lot more fun than the regular cover.

What are your thoughts? Which cover do you prefer?

 

 

OOTD: Gucci Birthday Present

I took these photos while holidaying in Milan in January for my birthday. It was a lovely day, we were on our way to the shops when I decided to pose for the camera for Fashion and Style Police.

I got this Gucci GG Marmont Matelasse shoulder bag on my birthday as a present to myself, and I adore it. It is my first Gucci bag and currently the most expensive bag in my collection. I am very happy I have gotten to a point in my life where I can spoil myself every once in a while. I have always admired Gucci bags and always wanted one. So it felt insanely good to grab this beauty. Plus I like the new Gucci logo!

This beauty would be my travel companion. I like to travel with shoulder cross body bags so I have my hands free to grab my toddlers. And so I don’t worry about losing my bag or its contents to pick pockets. Only a crazy person would try to rob a bag across my shoulder, in front of me!

It is also a great accessory for days out, and when I can’t be bothered with my regular big handbags.

Shopping in a Gucci store in Milan felt good. Like all the other luxury shops, the attention you get from the staff is so amazing. The shop was so beautiful and the service I got was great. I felt like a real life princess.

The berry jumper I have on is also new. It was one of my birthday presents. I felt so warm inside it, and I love the unique tie cuff design. It is one of my favourite knit pieces this season.
