Outfit Post: Are we fashion victims?

Hey Fashionandstylepolice Lovers! Who are fashion victims I hear you ask? A fashion victim is anyone who is at the mercy of fashion trends and who has no style boundaries. You are a fashion victim, if you buy everything you see on sale just because it is half price, regardless of whatever it would suit your body shape or complement your existing wardrobe. Many years ago, I thought  fashion victims were those men and women, working extremely long hours in factories, for very little wages. Now I know Fashion victims are everywhere and more and more people are victims of fashion and style.

I was once a victim of fashion, drowning in the fashion fads and struggling to keep up with every fashion trend. I am thankful that is no longer my story. Fashion trends are simply that. I shop for what suits my personal style and what I need, not what the fashion gurus tell me I need. The way I see it, fashion trends are for informative purposes only. They sometimes inspire me but they do not control me and it feels great to be able to shop for what I really want.

I got this lovely sparkly sweater some days ago. It is a new addition to my wardrobe and I am loving it. I love how easy it is to style it up or down. The blue jeans is also a new wardrobe addition to my jeans collection. I love the colour and it suits like a glove! A woman can never have too many pairs of jeans. It is one piece I am forever wearing, season after season.  Are you jeans lover?

Hey Fashion Lovers! Another week, another fashion blog for you. I have been slacking the outfit post category for some weeks now. Life got in the way but things are cooling down now so it is back to business as usual in the fashion and style department. This blog started purely as a fashion blog, and I truly enjoy writing about fashion and style, and showing off my personal style.

I wore this outfit some days ago. The weather in Cheshire has been great in the last few days. We have had sunny days and still a bit of rain, but I can’t complain. It is a lot better now than how it was some weeks ago. Long may the good weather continue.

This look was super easy to style. I put the look together from scratch within 5 minutes. I didn’t even have to overthink it, which is the beauty of having a capsule wardrobe. Every piece just falls in the right place.

I am wearing an African print blouse I got some years ago. I love wearing this piece especially in the summer months. It is dead comfy to wear all day if needed, and it is super easy to style too!  Everything else I have on is from my existing wardrobe, except my sunglasses, that is a new addition. I got the sunglasses some weeks ago. It is the latest addition to my sunglasses collection and my current favourite. I love the oversized shape and the colour. It ticks all the right boxes for me.

Good thing I took these outfit photos last week for this fashion blog post. The weather has been miserable here this week, with non stop rain and strong winds. Always good to make hay when the sun shines for real.

I am wearing a lovely blouse by Alala by Aken. You may remember this clothing brand from my last outfit post, where I featured a bomber jacket from the designer. Here, I am wearing another stunning piece from the brand. I love everything about this blouse. It is a stunning fabric designed beautifully. I can see the attention to detail on it. The sleeves are giving me life. Love them!
