Fashion – What I Wore on my Birthday

Hey fashion lovers! I finally got around to publishing my birthday outfit post. Whoop Whoop! For those who do not know, it was my birthday a few days ago. I turned 31 and I posed for some outfit photos. As a fashion blogger, I was planning to go all out on my birthday, and rock a super glam outfit, but then life happened and I couldn’t.

Like I mentioned in previous posts, I was not feeling well for the whole of last week. I was battling a terrible cold and was too drained to be in the party mood. So I didn’t really make any birthday plans. Which means no birthday outfit was decided until the last minute. I decided to style up some of my birthday gifts, and I am happy I did just that. It made my day even more special.

Everything I had on except the sleeveless blazer and bag, was a birthday present. I receive a couple gifts from my loved ones a few days to my birthday, so I decided to style them together for my big day. The look worked so well. I felt super comfy and warm, which was good as it was a very cold day.

I remember growing up as kid, birthdays was a big deal for me, and it still is. The whole idea of having my own special day, and being bombarded with birthday wishes and presents always puts a smile on my face. And I am certain it is the same for many. Birthdays are still a big deal for me, even as an adult. I appreciate every new year (even though I am growing older 😃) and what each year brings to me.

I am super excited to see what the thirties has in store for me, since my twenties were amazing. Wish me luck!

Outfit Post – Fashion Bloggers Please Dress Warm

It is my birthday in a few days and I am looking forward to celebrating the new year in my own way. Being a January baby means I get to start the new year with a birthday and align my goals to suit my new stage in life. I am still in the process of styling my birthday outfit in my head (it has to be perfect since I am a fashion blogger right?), not really decided what I would wear or what I would do on the day. But I am sure ideas would crop up closer to the date, so look out for a birthday outfit post soon.

I wore this outfit some weeks ago. The Silver Grey Long Oversized Coat With Faux Fur Hood is a new wardrobe addition. I am so in love with it. It is the right length and it feels so warm and comfy. The faux fur trim hood is an added touch of beauty and the puffy fit is great for layering this winter.

Dressing warm is so important in the winter and we fashion bloggers need to promote that a lot more. I remember when I initially started blogging, I came across a few fashion blogs that would show off outfit posts wearing summery pieces in the middle of winter, and I thought it was so unrealistic and misleading. 9 times out of 10, these bloggers would pose outside for a few minutes to get the photos taken and get back inside to wear something more sensible. Like who walks around in a mini skirt and crop top in the winter months?

I don’t play with the cold weather. I dress warm and make sure the kids are dressed warm too. So I find it crazy to see many fashion bloggers still doing this. Fashion should be stylish and comfy. You should not have to choose one over the other, when you can have both. So my fellow fashion bloggers, please think twice before you step outside to be photographed in yet another revealing outfit in the middle of winter. It looks very silly and dangerous. Health is wealth, remember that.

OOTD: Blue is the New Black

I have always loved blue, especially the navy/midnight blue shade. I think it is the closest shade to black, a more fancy black if you like. Blue is the new black!

It is the season of dresses, and I am wearing a Navy Blue Chiffon Embellished Short Dress by Quiz Clothing. This stunning blue dress is one of Quiz Clothing’s Occasion Dresses and I think it is a true beauty.

I collaborated with Quiz Clothing to showcase the brand’s new bridal range. I was paired with a blogger – Sarah from Let Them Be Small, and she choose the lovely dress, shoes, clutch and bracelet for me. I love them all, and I think Sarah has a great taste.

I really like this dazzling dress. It is perfect for the party season, a great piece to wear to a wedding or even dinner date. The detailing on the dress is amazing. You can tell a lot of thought was put into designing it. The diamante embellished waist is simply stunning. This dress is definitely a party essential.

The sparkly accessories finished off the look beautifully. I love the Silver Diamante Mesh Courts Shoes. It looked amazing paired with the dress, and was super comfy too!

I really like the sparkly jewellery and accessories I had on here. Wearing the shoes was like stepping into glamour. The mesh outer, embellished with diamantes, these courts and high shimmer heel, helped create the perfect footwear for this look.

The Silver Glitter Envelope Clutch Bag is also a great accessory for this look and any party outfit. I love the glitter fabric with silver detailing, there is something so glam about it. And the Silver Diamanté Cube Clip Bracelet with Diamantes arranged in a chain style bracelet, looks really great. Apart from it being a beauty, I found it easy to put it on and take off.
