Size doesn’t matter, but style does

I have been working on a super exciting project over the Christmas period and it’s finally ready for you all. This post is focused around the winter collection from Simply Be, but it’s got a bit more to it than that. This post is one of two posts, the other coming from my blogger babe Yasmine who has been essential to the thought process of this piece. We are two female bloggers living in London. We both love to blog, we have the same Olympus pen camera when we do blog, and we share the same love for matcha tea too. Come to think of it we are very similar indeed. The one difference however is our size which is where all the fun comes in, and I shall explain why. We both have the exact same three things from Simply Be’s winter collection and we are going to show you that size doesn’t matter, but style does!

We have styled these three items up to our own specification and we want to help show all our readers that when it comes to a top, a dress, a jacket, no one should feel like it’s not made for them. It is made for those with a desire to invent a wardrobe around that piece whatever it may be. You are not too ‘old’, too ‘big’, too ‘petite’ or too ‘what the hell who cares’ for that item that catches your eye.

 

The Jumper

Lace up Top: Simply Be
Wetlook Trousers: H&M
Space Boots: Lacoste
Pom Pom Clutch: Boohoo

 

Size is not relative to style, it’s about how you go about styling to fit not only your personality but your body as well. There is a way for all of us to step out of the house feeling proud of what we are wearing and this is simply because of how we are wearing our clothes. Grab those boots you never wear, search for that item in your wardrobe with the tag still on it. Change it up, and you will change your whole day I promise.

 

The Jacket

Lace Shrug: Simply Be
White Cut Out Dress: Boohoo
Croc Print Gold Clutch: Kaleidoscope
Sole Diva Ankle Strap Court Shoes: Simply Be

 

I truly believe that it makes no difference if you are a size 6 or a size 16, we all have the same choices to make in the morning about what we will look like for the day. So look amazing every day, ignore your bad hair or your unshaved legs, it doesn’t matter if you have the confidence which comes from the magic of your wardrobe!

 

The Shoes

Sole Diva Ankle Strap Court Shoes: Simply Be
Metallic Zip Crop & Pleated Skirt: Primark
Faux Fur Coat: Apricot

 
We each fell in love with these three pieces from the Simply Be collection, and we chose to rock it! Now will you?

See how Yasmine styles up her identical items very soon, I’ll be tweeting as soon as she does!

London Fashion Week Day One

I am forever grateful that the weather for this season’s fashion week decided to hold on just beore it thought to take a wintery turn. This will be the last time in 2016 you will see me out and about in tiny crop tops and bare legs as winter has most definitely come to the capital now that October is here. Despite some mild showers on day one, the weather was just perfect and I am thrilled to share my experiences with you from start to finish. Here is the first of five posts- London Fashion Week Day One.

My Outfit

Since this was a rainy day, I wore a very fitting trench coat dress from Red Herring. I paired the dress with a gorgeous bag from Today I’m Me and Steve Madden shoes. It was great to hang out with Eleasha (Duchess of Fashion) too who helped with the shots!

The Place

The place where I spent most of my time seeing the catwalk shows was at Freemason’s Hall for Fashion Scout. There were a few other places including a congress centre and a church too!

Catwalk Highlights

Ong-Oaj Pairam

I eagerly anticipated the Ong-Oaj Pairam show just like the previous season. He uses such a range of materials and the fabrics and colours are just to die for! A #perfectseason.

Ones to Watch

Tom Daley certainly loved being on the FROW for the Ones to Watch catwalk which showcased four top designers including Ana Ljubinkovic and Billie Jacobina pictured above.

Rocky Star

Rocky Star stole the show with their gorgeous embellished gowns. This season had a very Moroccan vibe as the girls came out to showcase each design. Heavy eyeliner and earthy tones made for a great ending to London Fashion Week Day One.
