Ruffles; love ’em or hate ’em?

Asos Ruffle Top

It’s a love hate relationship I have with ruffles right now. It seems it’s on every store front, on every shop corner on every current fashion magazine. I just can’t seem to make up my mind.

Primark Ruffle Top €13

I think they can at times, add feminine class but must be paired with the correct ensemble. Steer clear of any gaudy jewellery. In fact, it needs little to none. Same applies for milk-maid tops. A small pearled earring would do the trick.

Left to Right: Gucci, Chloe, Balenciaga, Givenchy.

In order of the above I love, hate, love, hate it. Why? I think there is a fine line between tacky and classy. Be warned!

Rochas, SS ’14

Interestingly enough, the above display was put on at Paris Fashion Week SS 2014! Fashion really does come in circles.

Tales in Black and White

Black; a forever classic.
White; chic.
Merge the two and you get a burst of everything.
Black & White
I put together a collage of some fun and chic black and white mixes.  You may get called a walking zebra but at least you are a stylish one. Check out this cute shirt from Cos; a non bank-breaker, ladies!

Stripped Rib Jumper

What do you think of this white on white? I never thought it would work but looks like this black belt has done the trick.

What a stunning pair of white palazzos (below). I love the high waist with button-defined waist line. How flattering with the slash cut turtleneck!

Weekend Diaries

So can someone please explain to me why this weekend went by Concord-fast? What is with that. And Monday will be a drag. So I’m going to preserve what little time I have here and enjoy my Sunday drippings with some fashion fixes.
Below, I have put together a mix of some cute pastel sleepwear. I just love silky slips, don’t you?
I put together this collage below of some fun and funky bright colours. Mustard has seriously been on my radar for the past couple of weeks. I’ve paired it with bold black to take one in to a nice chic Sunday evening. (Just in case you had some last minute dates or nightcaps to attend)
