Thank Blog it's Friday... With a twist!
This Friday we decided to give our very talented Camera man Milo a few days off to sun himself, so the video blog will be back next week. So I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce the new page that we have decided to make for the blog... another bow in our string so to speak!
For those of you who haven't been to the Salon let me introduce you to Kristina....
As you can see from this picture she is the kind of lady who could turn up to work
saying she had the worst case of man flu alive, and still have the demeanor
of a Princess and styling that makes Gok Wan look like he's been left in the stalls.
So I thought to myself why isn't this lady giving us her opinion
on what to put on our backs?
Here it is... The Fashion Page
August is here and still no sign of summer, the sales are on and all the shops
look like a JUMBLE SALE !!
Quite depressing really ...So I decided to cheer myself up and get excited about
the new season trends autumn/winter 2011.
The homework begins !!!!
My top 5 fave fashion pieces ..
Pick a Decade ANY decade !!
Whether it be 40's ,50's,60's,70's and even the 80's there all acceptable this
season ...It could be 40's with a nipped in at the waist pencil dress or 50's
Audrey Hepburn style dress with a hint of tweed .60's swing with a shift or 70's
patterned floaty number,or look to the future girls and wear leather and lace
combined huge trend .
Find it in - Miu Miu and New Look 40's ,Isabel Lucas in 70's or the Lace vibe worn at Julien Macdonald (seen above) ,Salvatore Ferragamo.
Whether its Purple ,Orange ,Cobalt or green wear it block and bright.
Forget the neutrals...brighten up ladies!
Seen on - Ginnifer Goodwin in Green Topshop ,Gwyneth Paltrow in a yellow Rachel Roy and Angelina Jolie in an Orange Jenny Packham number.
Ditch the maxi...
Bring on the Pencil Skirt...this chic curve enhancing skirt
doesn't have to be boring, looks sexy worn high waisted,or teamed with pussy bow
blouses or bring on a bright top killing two fashion trends in one go..Wahoo!!
|Dolce & Gabbana |
Seen on - Christina Ricci -Dolce&Gabbana,Leighton Meester wearing Vera Wang and
seen in the high street stores Zara , Oasis ,Warehouse.
Bring out the STAR in you ...
Massive trend this season is going to be clothes
with starry creations ,whether its dresses, jeans,jumpers
or even if its just a pair of starry earrings
if they've got stars they're rocking it!.
and worn on Solange Knowels and Pixie Geldof.
See you in COURT...
I thought you can't have all these great outfits
without a fab shoe, and the court shoe does it for me. An elegant shoe that can
be worn with just about anything ,comes in different colours,heel sizes and
textures, a gorgeous all round shoe .
Seen on - Alexa Chung ,Jennifer Aniston and more.. shops Aldo ,Nine west and
Pied A Terre .
Saving the best till last of course the
HAIR !!!!!! What to do? well very simple
Plus it looks stunning with all outfits ,The PONY TAIL , can be worn high and
textured like Kate Beckinsale below , the low pony tail textured or smooth or the
sharp parting sleek and sexy like Eva Longoria,all rocking the A/W catwalk trend
The pony-tail hair kit ...
Hair bungees to help grip that pony tail in...
Aqua slide for a wet look
and finish with a Hairspray essential. Freeze, to make sure that it all
stays in place
For the short hair lovers ,lovely little pixie crops worn on Emma Watson and
Ginnifer Goodwin or a cute short textured bob very vintage , Alexa Chung wears it well and Kirsten Dunst .
Pixie kit ...definition and texture Flex wax
and for a sleeker shiny look Aqua slide (see link above)
Vintage Bob - scrunched in texture twin curl will give you that beach look or a
smooth wave use curl me soft .
