THE TRENCH

THE TRENCH

The coat that takes you from season to season whether you're dressed up or down. The coat that can go from day to night, summer to winter, sunshine to stormy weather, its the 'everything' coat. Thick enough to keep you warm in the winter but light enough to protect you from the rain. Okay, I think you get it now - it's the perfect coat! It's the iconic trench coat! A staple in every style icons closet since 1989 (just kidding, but it sounded good).

OH MY MINI

OH MY MINI

Today is all about the miniskirt, best known as the 'forbidden skirt' before the 1960's.

NOT MY PJS

NOT MY PJS

In the infamous words of anybody who has been caught in an unlawful act "its not what it looks like". It really isn't though, I'm not off to bed in this outfit this is actually what I would wear on a girl,s night out. To all the men out there, with the exception of a few, women dress for other women. Its a well known fact, my girls are the ones who would appreciate this, men just don't get it (lol no offence).

BACK TO BLACK

BACK TO BLACK

I've been holding out on posting head-to-toe black outfits because if I had it my way, I'd be in it every single day. Blogging has definitely got me thinking about what I wear a little bit more. Don't get me wrong I'm still  true to my style but we all have those moments where we tend to wear the same items repeatedly as if we never owned anything a year ago. That being said, after doing a bit of digging in my closet I came across these wide-leg, high-waisted pants and the rest is history.
