How to find your own style: reflecting on my fashion choices

This month I’ve had so many compliments on my outfits, both in person and online.  I’m always super flattered when people rate my style, yet equally I feel surprised that they find my look so ‘out there’. After all, I’m just being me.

A Guide to Accessorising: Dressing up a £15 jumpsuit

I’m terrible for under-accessorising, mainly because I seldom buy any. I’m one of those people who’ll hesitate to spend £40 on a bag I’ll use every day, yet will happily shell out for a dress I’ll only wear a couple of times.

Well no more. You see, accessories are a really great way to create a luxe look on a low budget. Armed with a new Gant belt and a desire to change my ways, I decided to style up this bargain jumpsuit. Read more…
