Stripes

Most of my winter clothes are black and grey. Which is chic, but can be dull. Stripes help give dimension.

I tried different colour pumps but anything other than black with black tights looks cheap, especially light colours.

One of the best wardrobe staples is a grey blazer because it goes with everything from high waist flares to cocktail dresses.

Add some J-Lo hoops for a bit of tame bling and a cute striped scarf  (similar) Dotty ring – Bangkok boutique

Red & Dotty

Love this dress, especially that I can interchange different colour belts to change the look (I previously blogged with a bright pink one!) and highlight with other accessories. Make sure you get belt loops!

Denim and Print

One of my favourite wardrobe tricks is to add a well-worn denim jacket over a posh or formal dress. It tones the look down and at the same time, funks it up.

Black Ruffle-Neck Frock

Happy Friday All! I know black isn’t really a Friday colour, but I do so love this ruffle neckline – does that excuse me and my slightly heavy eye-liner? I promise some floral flamboyant number next week to make up for it.

Black and White and Red all over!

Question: What’s black and white and read all over?

Answer: a newspaper!………… and me in this post 🙂

Am quite into dresses and jackets this week, but I do love the way a simple blazer can change an entire look. I have worn this stripy little number to the beach with flip-flops and a straw hat, but today it’s all heels and hair.

Leopard Print & Black

As promised, here is my second amazing little clutch that I purchased from the kind man at the market stall (kind for offering me a 15% discount!) In my opinion (which counts, as this is my blog) a strong leopard print piece such as this, is best paired with black. My trusted uber-mini skirt works well with the huge men’s black shirt as it is almost the same length and feels cheeky yet discreet.
