OOTD: Calling the Shots

The title of this post is inspired by the name of the lipstick I am wearing – Rimmel London Call the Shots. I have been incredibly busy these last couple of days, dealing with new clients and life in general. I almost didn’t have the take these outfit photos, but I was determined to find the time, against all odds. I believe when you want something so badly, you find the time for it. No room for excuses this year. I am calling the shots in my life!

Spring is here, and I am loving the sunshine we are getting. It is still more rain than sun, but I can’t complain. I made good use of the amazing weather by getting these photos taken. I hope the sunshine stays.

Every piece I have on is an “oldie but goldie”.  I got this black floral dress last year summer, and I have worn it a few times now. It is dead comfy and so easy to style; one of my current favourites. The brown faux leather jacket is also from last season’s collection, and so are the brown boots. If you are a regular reader, you would spot the black bag and sunnies, I have had them for donkey years, and they still look good.

This is the reason why I like to buy quality items. The more you spend on an item, the longer you have it, that is usually the case with me, especially when it comes to accessories – shoes, bags, jewellery and sunglasses. And that is the reason why I like to invest a little more in them, so they serve me for longer.

I also like to sell my old accessories on eBay, and bags do sell quite well on eBay.

OOTD: Birthday in Milan

As you should all know by now, I turned 30 last week Saturday, and I spent the weekend in Milan. It was an amazing trip. I had fun exploring the beautiful city. There was a lot to see, especially the shops. We popped into all the lovely luxury stores – Gucci, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Mercedes-Benz, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo and the likes. I wish I had an unlimited budget, I would have bought all the bags and shoes in the stores. I did get a few things, I just wish I got more.

I took these photos on my birthday. I got the pieces just before the trip, and I like how the outfit turned out. I love wearing jumper dresses in the winter because they are warm and cosy, and also very easy to style, all I need is a pair of tights to bring it to life.

Jumper desses are also very multi-tasking, they can be worn in the warmer months without tights. I have recently fallen in love with the style, and I have quite a few in my wardrobe now.

The shoes are new as well, a gift and I love the over the top bow on it. It stands out and many people seem to like the design. I love it!

We took the pictures below at Duomo di Milano. If you have been there before, you would know how busy the place is. We got a couple of pictures taken in the midst of the birds and chaos. I didn’t like the location much, the birds were a little too many for me, and there were people everywhere -a proper tourist spot.

That is my lovely big sister. She has appeared on the blog twice before as a Fashion Diva and she was with us over in Milan. We were up to no good half the time, lol.

Speaking of Fashion Divas, I need to bring that series back to life. What say you? So get in touch if you are a fashion blogger or lover, and want to feature your style on Fashion and Style Police.

The birds were everywhere  I was worried I would step on them.

Or they would step on me. Or perch on me. I was trying to get some cover from my Sis here, lol.

It was a fun trip, and I can’t wait to go back. I will just avoid the birds in Duomo next time.

OOTD: The Oversized Trend & the Petite Woman

I got back from my birthday vacation from Milan yesterday, and I had a good time. I have been sharing snaps from my holiday on Instagram, so you can catch up on my Milan trip on Instagram. I will also been sharing some of my holiday snaps on the blog along with details of my trip soon, so look out for that post.

I am now trying to get back into the swing of things. I travelled with my iPad Pro and Keyboard, hoping I would be able to get some work done but I was unable to. I was having so much fun, I didn’t even have time to publish a blog post. Yes Milan was that good, and I can’t wait to go back. The shops were so amazing. I was like a kid in a candy store!

I took these photos in Essex some weeks ago. It was a cold wet day, but the rain stopped just in time for me to get these shots taken.

I have fallen in love with the oversized trend. I have always liked the trend, but I seem to be picking more and more oversized pieces lately. As a petite lady, I find it odd that they look good on me. I previously wrote about style tips for the petite woman, and it is funny I broke a few rules here. But it is allowed for an oversized look.

This is the trend I am into for now. Who knows what I will be into next month!

However, there is a very thin line between looking stylish and looking frumpy when it comes to rocking oversized pieces. So thin, many cross it everyday without knowing. I think I should write a post on that, what do you think?
