Outfit Post – Purple Rain

Purple was one of my wedding colours, which was no surprise as it is one of my favourite colours. My mini-me has tapped in on it as well; she adores the purple colour. But as much as I love the colour purple, and the song – Purple Rain by Prince, which inspired this post, I only have a few purple pieces and accessories in my wardrobe. Which makes no sense at all. How can you love a colour but no shop for pieces in it?

I plan on adding more purple items to my wardrobe. I am still not sure why I have only a few purple pieces but that is the reality. This shirt is a new wardrobe addition. I got it some months ago from the city of Kentucky in the US as a souvenir. It is one of those casual pieces I can just throw on when I am feeling too lazy to play dress up or too warm to think. The weather has been extremely uncomfortable warm for some time now. Most times I struggle to think of the most appropriate outfit to rock because of the heat.  How is the weather at your end?

The cream sandals are new as well. I got that while holidaying in the US. They are great for the weather and dead comfy too which is a plus.

I am currently wearing my hair in a fro and treating the hell out of it. I have been experimenting with some new natural hair products and I will be sharing them in an upcoming post. It is amazing how much my hair has grown in the last few weeks. It just shows whatever you pay attention to grows.

What are you paying attention to?

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: The Show Must Go On

OOTD Picture

 

The first half of 2016 is over. And usually around this time of the year, I like to reflect on how my year has been so far. So I know if I am heading in the right direction or not. I am a bit of an organised freak, so I like to keep an eye on any aspect of my life. 2016 has been fab to be honest. My family and friends are well. I am well. The summer weather has been great in the last couple of days, although I am still suffering from hay fever, and it got worse last weekend, but I am hoping to be free of it very soon, crossing my fingers, and my toes.

Fashion and Style Police is growing and my income reports are also looking good, which is fab. This blog started as a hobby, then became a part-time job, and is now a full-time job. I even have a lovely lady working with me to keep this blog alive and kicking, so I am happy I am reaping the fruits of my labour, and all my efforts have not been in vain.

My Book – How to Cash In as a Blogger is also a bit popular on Amazon (please leave me a review on Amazon if you haven’t done so already), so I feel extremely blessed.

Overall, the first half of the year has been fantastic, and I am raising my glass to the second half of the year, hoping it is even better.

Now over to this outfit. I wore this outfit some days ago. We were visiting friends and family in another city and I wanted a simple/casual outfit, so I went for this. I also had on this gorgeous rose gold Grand Classic Michelle Keegan Coin Necklace by Sparkling Jewellery, and it got a lot of attention. It is a fine delicate necklace, and the coin design makes it even more beautiful and special. Plus in came in my favourite shade of gold – Rose Gold.

I fell in love with this necklace as soon as I laid eyes on it. It came in a very cute package, it was impossible to not fall in love. It retails for only £35, which I find very affordable. Sparkling Jewellery also has so many other unique necklace, bracelet and ring designs, with light price tags so you will be spoilt for choice on their website.
