Clothing essentials for summer

Hello all, sorry I haven’t written in so long ;( I’m back now & I want to share with you my Fashion must haves and must nots for travelling !

MUST HAVES:

bb2 1. A little white dress

This is an essential summer must have if you are wanting to achieve that effortless European style whilst remaining cool in the sun. Also a perk of having a white dress or Playsuit is that it goes with anything, any shoes or bag which maximises out your outfit choices when traveling.

 2. A pair of relaxed denim shorts 

When I say relaxed I mean loose and comfy, because on holiday its hot and there is nothing worse than having a pair of shorts that kind of fit in at home but are way to tight when your hot and well a little sun-creamy. Denim shorts are essential for summer when pulling off the relaxed chick beach bum look (its my fav)

These are defiantly my must haves and first in the bag each year! They are a total lifesaver when heels are a no no. Perfect for evenings or the day they are even sand proof – (well you can walk on the sand in them with as much difficulty as flip-flops 🙂 Plus they make your legs look gorgeous when in shorts or a dress !

 

Okay so those are my 3 essentials when it comes to packing, but there are also 3 key Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to traveling stylishly.

DO’S & DON’TS: 

1. DO — Smooth out your clothes on the bed and carefully roll them when packing, don’t fold. This should prevent any major creases and when travelling it helps creates more space for that extra pair of shoes or bag!.

2.DONT — Take loads and loads of Bikini’s, two or three pairs is more than enough if you love them, and make sure one of them is black as your guaranteed it will survive the sun cream stains that white bikinis are prone to + they make your tan look better.

3.DO — Take moisturiseer on the plane with you, and try to avoid wearing makeup, as planes are prone to drying out and dehydrating your skin which can lead to spots! which is not wanted for our summer look. So make sure to take care of your skin when in the air.

Love Wiz X.

Yes I am aware everything is large this season, but seriously go big or go home, its not just puffy sleeves and oversized jackets, its EVERYTHING! including the winter scarf, now everyone has their favourite, but to look like you’ve jumped out of a style magazine – yes every girl wants this, neutral tones are v. in and large is a must have. Then to top of the look pair with skinny jeans and almost anything in the same colour tones, and your turning into a winter goddess.

My BFF ‘Abnormal Beauty company’ products…

abnormal beauty company

The Abnormal Beauty company has completely cheated the beauty industry, by incorporating products we would normally have to pay a pretty penny,  such as ‘Hydraulic Acid’ and ‘Niacinamide’ into serums for just £5.00 such as my fav ‘nicacinamide 10% + zinc 1%‘ which is perfect for troubled skin in helping balance out the oils and thereby eradicating spots after a couple of regular uses. Although if you use this product I would recommend applying my 2nd BF ‘Hydraulic Acid 2% + B5′ which is the perfect non oil moisturising serum – I apply religiously every night in my skin care routine.

The Abnormal Beauty company has stolen a huge fraction of the beauty industry, by completely undercutting prices and still producing high quality stylish goods. In the past I have been a huge fan of ‘Skin Ceuticals’ Retexturing activator which the Abnormal

Beauty company have taken and transformed into ‘nicacinamide 10% + zinc 1%’ the same ingredients for a fraction of the price. Meaning all you girls out their now have an excuse for an extra pair of shoes a month !!

So for any one with bad skin or high maintenance skin wanting to fatten their purses, The Abnormal Beauty company is perfect in providing us with almost legitimate black market goods form the beauty industry – taken straight from ‘La Mer’s’ and ‘Skin Ceuticals’ catalogues and shipped to us in style.

 

 

 

Erdem X H&M Landing 2nd November…

H&M is coming home this winter, with its new collaboration with British designer Erdem set to be released on 2nd November 9am. Erdem might not be as known to you, as H&M’s previous partners ‘Kenzo’ or ‘Karl Lagerfeld” as he’s previously only ever done womenswear, so its a perfect opportunity to grab a piece of record breaking fashion with Erdem’s very first menswear line, just in time for your BF this christmas.

It will be H&M’s 17th designer collaboration, with this year set to be soft, floral, elegant period designs. With Erdem taking influence from his teen memories “So much of the collection was actually quite personal and i found myself reflecting how we used to dress throughout high school”, so this release will not only make you a limited edition fashion owner, but will dress you in youth.

Erdem has also stated his sister was his main muse for this epic Erdem X H&M release, from her “Big Norwegian jumpers my sister used to wear with a tea dress and army boots” The perfect chic combo for this winter…Get ready girls they’re going to sell fast !

And its not just the girls, guys your in this too, with Erdem masterminding his very first mens line its going to be epic! Erdem told the fashion world “Tearing apart each of its components and putting them back together into a complete and timeless wardrobe. Yet it’s still so true to what I do in womenswear. Its contrast between the utilitarian and romantic is what I think I enjoy about it most.”

Because we all know “fashion is about being anything but boring” – Erdem

 

What I see in Fashion

I know I write a lot of clothing comparisons from luxury clothes to high street brands, so I wanted to do something a little different. ‘What I see in Fashion’ – (soz Brooklyn)

Shopping is any girls love affair, online or in store it’s the feeling, the power of being able to transform yourself into a magazine inspired world. Where one swipe of a card and you can walk away with Italian leather, or cashmere jumpers, so soft you can’t leave until your clutching the glossy bags in your hand. But once the warm glow of the stores are behind you, the vision disappears, and the vivid images of you taking on the world through your luxury purchase disintegrates. Into a overly priced bland jumper- soft, goodness yes. But visionary, no. To be Fashion, you must control the instincts of human comforts in clothing, you have to see fashion as a possession, a beautiful individual design that will make you, you. Its got to be a raw passion not a comfort blanket. That expresses your individuality, not uniformed fashion where your all pushed into dressing alike.

When you next open a magazine, be inspired by the beauty of fabrics and craftsmanship, take in the styles and bold expressions the catwalks create. So when your in the store where beauty is all around you, but not yet on you, your persuaded to remain safe and shop for your comfort zone, not your personality. The store should be viewed as the library of clothing, only in fashion books are always judged by the cover –

Fashions highest designer denim …

1. Gucci

With Denim once again re gracing the store windows Fashions highest hot brands are re making the double denim look with daring textures and bold embroidery. Gucci has taken the rough denim look to a whole new fashion statement with contrasting metal studs against tropical stitching creating a stunning centre piece with its beauty hidden in the boldness. Gucci’s “calf hair-panneled embellished denim jacket” is high selling at £4,780 a piece in the major retailers of Net a Porter and mytheresa. Taking on a wild texture assault over denim and bombers.

2. Stella

Taking a step down from the extravagance of Gucci’s denim Stella has mixed simplicity through her darker shades and vibrant embroidery, a calmer more versatile piece for your denim wardrobe. But keeping with fashions strong link to embroidery and textures this season, and retailing at £1,340 Stella’s over sized relaxed bomber is a must have for summer outfits, mixing relaxed with accessorised and creating the perfect balance.

But when paired with a unforgiving price tag, Gucci suddenly doest seem so friendly even if their look is stunning. So girls we expand into other designers such as Zara our all time favourite who have some gorgeous embellished jackets with prices that will love you back.

3. ZARA

Zara’s punk denim jacket is a true rockstar among your wardrobe, taking centre stage on all outfits this Rock & Roll accessory challenges Stella’s delicate embroidery and lose fit with a rougher more masculine design. At only £69.99 its price will make you fall in love all over again !!!

4. ZARA

Another heart breaker is Zara’s artist impression embroiled jacket, with a large fabric design in detailed gold and black stitching, this unique and rare jacket, matches Gucci with a bold design. A true masterpiece this relaxed fit denim and belt will send any outfit onto another level. At £59.99 Zara jacket comes with a label that won’t bite your purse and will lift all outfits.

All my love…Dotwiz X.

 

The bralette babe …

The lace looks are running back but with a casual tone. Becoming less of a statement piece and more like a lush accessory for relaxed day wear. But there are some definite Do’s and Don’ts in pulling of a easy bralette babe look:

  1. Always go classic, so not harsh bright colours stick to greys-blacks-navy for your colour scheme.
  2. Back detailing is essential, you want to expose an elegant back so go for more intricate designs featuring backs and shoulders.
  3. Its all about the lace, a regular bra isn’t elegant enough to be paired with causal attire, remember if you are wearing something slouchy it must be paired with some elegance to be pulled off correctly.

For me i go to Zara’s siter brand Berska it’s the perfect place to look right now with all of Zara’s style and price tags, it’s a more understated brand – so the perfect place to find rare edgy styles, especially when it comes to bralettes !

All my love and happy shopping…Dotwiz X.

Fantasising over fabrics…

1.

So summer is coming, and new styles are on their way in the form of sparkles and fabrics! As for girls, shoes are key to any successful outfit they are the base for your style and the first thing someone notices about you. So why not bling them up with gorgeous fabrics and  embezzle them with sparkles, its what any girl would want. These stunning !!! tweed trainers from Zara are the perfect foot friend for this summer. With trainers being the go to shoe this year, these will never be forgotten with an elegant timeless style matched with modern bling, at £45.99 you have to check them out !!! and bling up your summer with true style.

2.

If your more of a modern polished girl, then you’ll love Zara’s new frayed fabric trainers. With more of a polished shimmer and edgy fray along the seam, they would make any pair of jeans look that extra bit designer. Pairing polished with punk for the desired outcome of high style, And two colour choices of bronze or navy. Zara has you covered for evening and afternoon style. So you can view this purchase as an investment for your toes !! And at only £19.99 they will be a true friendship for your wardrobe and purse.

The Tulle Trend…

1.

Paired with any little black top to compliment the satin tie around black bow will look stunning no matter what. This is a must have buy for anyone looking to glam up their wardrobe and take a page out of the fashion movie “Sex and the City” for that Sarah Jessica Parker glam style.
