Kimono for the kill !

OK I don’t mean literally but if your trying to make a statement and be fashion forward this is the piece for you.  

Ideal for both daytime and evening looks; I love the versatility of Kimonos. 

Pair yours with cute shorts and flip flops for a trendy beach look. Or with a pair of skinny jeans and killer sandals for your perfect holiday evening outfit. 

I always pack at least one kimono on holiday. 

New look have got a few kimono in the tall range. Shop these here!  I love the floral white one. What do you think of it ? 
See you on the next post. Xo

Five rules for wearing floral prints

Hey lovelies. …. we can hardly make it past summer without saying the ‘F’ word. Floral prints are definitely a summer staple.

Deciding which floral print to wear can be the problem. Is there any such thing as a dated print? Are some prints more suited for specific sessions ? ????🤔

Fashion rules are there to be pushed and broken. But here are 5 rules to help you in wearing floral prints this summer. 

Rule  No. 1

Wear whatever print makes you happy and comfortable . During the summer months you might find that larger sized  prints are more suited to match the bright and vibrant weather.  During the winter you can get away with adding colour and character to grey and cold days with smaller sized floral prints.

Rule No. 2

It is not a crime to wear floral print on floral print.  It takes a very special kind of person to pull this off.  If you are going the extra mile and wish to wear clashing prints, take care not to over do it. Medium sized prints with small sized floral prints might just be the right balance. 
Rule No. 3

Make a statement with your floral print.  Maximum the impact of your floral print by wearing it in a maxi-dress or by draping it in a duster/ kimono.
Rule No. 4

Be brave enough to experiment with colour. Opt for colours which suit your complexion for a girly and fresh look. 
Rule No. 5

If you are still not sure how to join the flower power movement, floral embroidery item are on trend and perfect for this season.

Perfect Pleats

Skirts are essentials in every ladies wardrobe.  How much better when the skirt is a midi, pleated and printed.

Yessss🙌🙌. That’s triple glory in my books.

Pleated skirts have an element of “back to school” and it reminds me of my much cherished school days.  I hated my pleated kilt skirt back then. Who would have known that I would be investing in pleated skirts now. On a more serious note, this skirt is lush and it would make the perfect center piece for every outfit.

I am obsessed with movement and this skirt has got it all and a bag of chips. Although not part of the tall range at Topshop, I just had to click buy.

The sad part of life is that you can’t always get what you want, when you want it.

So this is my secret.

When I can’t find a style in the tall range, I always check out the standard range.  Generally I can get away with a midi length in the standard range.

Ta daaa!!!

Never let your height make you feel disadvantaged

This shirt works so well as a high waist number.  Can you see what I mean by the length. Perfect for my long legs

Maximizing Maxi’s

As we approach what seems to be the end of the summer months here in the UK..😣😣.

I had to share a post on maxi’s… the ultimate summer piece.
We leggy beauties know how difficult it is to find maxi’s that are long enough.
I opted to shop from the tall connoisseurs here in the UK.

This garden maxi as its called is perfect for your garden parties and luncheons.  The subtle pinks and lilac flower prints makes it very feminine. We like👍.
The good news is  that you don’t have to wave floral prints goodbye just yet.  Long live the floral prints as they come in stronger and bolder for AW/15.

This dress speaks for its self. No fuss , no jewellery needed a very easy wear.

image

I am a huge fan of wrap front clothing  as it’s very flattering for the curvy lady.  That said, the neckline of this dress had to be pinned as it was too exposed.
While I felt this dress was a few inches shorter than I would have liked, it does show off the my metallic silver sandals perfectly and classic red pedicure.  Not so bad after all.

The halter and back detail on this dress was unexpected and a well received suprised.

Happy summering

The side pockets on this dress is total handy. you can keep your phone with you at all times to capture those moments and of-course one or twenty selfies. ;-)

I am in love with the print, colour and general shaping of this dress.  It is flattering and #fashionedaroundmycurves. However, the cool 100% cotton fabric makes this dress slightly on the snug side.  On the brighter side you can be snugged yet cool???

This is the problem with being a woman … too much choice. Which combination do you prefer? Comments in the box below.
