4 hairstyles for rainy days…

4 Real easy hairstyles for those rainy afternoons…& How to turn a bad hair day into a natural (i’m not even trying) tumbler photo edit.

messy-pony-tail#1  The favourite messy pony tail, For those late morning panics, or get out of my face days. The messy pony tail is your latest BF. Just flip your head upside down, loosely gather your hair in one hand, Flip you head back up…Then loosen the top part of your hair by moving your hand slightly lower down your head. Tie it up with a cute scrunchy or bobble, securing however tightly you wish. Then to loosen your bangs gently run your hands through the top half of your head, and let them frame your face. Tadaaa your perfect bad hair day quickfix.

Just remember the beauty of this look is for it to be slightly messy… you don’t want a smooth head, so if your finding you cant quite get the messy casual look try straight away, try a little back combing through your bangs. It should do the trick!

messy-bun

#2 The classic messy bun, the most famous messy hair look for all girls and your partner in crime for any early morning coffee runs. To be worn high or low, Fat or thin, Messy or Messy… Simply flip your head over gather up your hair in one hand, use your fingers to run you hand through the roots to gather volume. Flip your head back over and tie it up like a pony tail, on the last pull through the bobble leave the hair half way through (so it looks like a floppy croissant) Then pull the hair around the front (now it should look like a donut) And tie another bobble around that. The faster you tie your bobble around your hair donut the messier it will be. Then if you want some loose bangs, just run your finger through the roots of your hair. And bam you’ve got yourself the most renowned messy bun out there…

up-knot-hair-style #3 The half knot, becoming more and more popular the half knot is a simple stylish look, if you just want your bangs out of your eyes…Or your sporting some killer lashes and you want the maximum impact! Simply run your fingers through the top half of your hair, gather up the strands, place however high or low you want the bun. And secure with a scrunchy. When securing you can either twist your hair so its in a long sausage then wrap it around you bobble and tie with another clip. Or you can gather up your strands and quickly pull the hair half way through each time you twist the bobble. Giving you a loose care free half knot, with a gorgeous messy effect. For whatever the occasion…I mean Kendal Jenner was even seen rocking this look fro the 2016 VS fashion show in paris, It really is a killer look.

double-bun

#4 The double bun (a modern princess Liea). A super cute messy look that truly frames your face beautifully. You can wear it as low as you want or as high as you want and still pull of the same OMFG effect. Start by dividing your hair into two. Then run your fingers through the hair to gather the loose strands and pull them on top of your head. Tie the hair up as if your putting it into a pony tail, Then gather up the ends of the hair and loosely wrap it around the bobble (use the bobble as a base to balance your bun, & if your struggling to secure the bun use some Bobbi pins as extra back up)  Then when your bun is secure run your fingers lightly through the top of your head, to create the slightly messy effect. Then just repeat on the other side until you have two gorgeous little messy buns. Now you are the true modern day princess!!

Hope you loved these looks as much as I do…Love Dotwiz X.

2017-New Year Fashion Resolutions

Wear less black

Iblack-fashion-2017t’s an easy colour to pair with and the though of your favourite black jeans is comforting, but 2017 is a time for stepping out of your comfort zone, and trying new colours. Maybe not crazy teacher jumpers with bright patches on. But defiantly khakis, mustards, creams and blues are all do able ! The tricky part of brightening up your wardrobe & why so many of us dread it, is that those hard manufactured colours make out faces seem blotchy or ghost grey, do we end up coating on the bronzer. So lets minus our black accessory to one item for each outfit…Thats not too bad.

evening-tops

Oh my goodness don’t we all love to stash up on those cute sheer evening outfits, well one of my hardest new year resolutions is to cute back…way back.

How to shop the sales like a Diva…

marc jacobs bags .jpg1.Research the shops

On the day of the sales, you most likely not have time to look around different shops, for the best price, so look online the night before so you know where the deals are. This will be more important if your after a particular designer piece as they are often in multiple outlets.

Sign up to your favorite shops mailing lists as they might include hints of whats going to be in the sale, & you will be  in the know of when the sales are coming first. Also create accounts for your favourite shops, so you can checkout online faster to place your order, as some more popular shops don’t save your items until you’ve payed for them.

2. Look through your wardrobe

This is very important for successful shopping, ask your self just two questions when clearing your wardrobe; What do I need ? & What do I want ?

This will make your investments have much greater use, as you will be buying what you lack. Meaning next week when you’ve spent all your money you don’t find yourself with 15 pairs of shoes and no tops.

3. Does it fit

Don’t fall into the category of buying something a size to big because you love it, Only buy what fits your body perfectly. (this doesn’t mean it has to be skin tight) Try on your favourite items before the sale season, to perfect your size and you will be much more likely to buy something in the sale that you love and wear all the time, Just make a note of the size and colour.

4. Only buy what you love

Its easy to see everything as a bargain when sales shopping, and make out that your actually saving money. Wrong. Sales shopping is when you’re more likely to buy because its on sale, rather than because you love it. Therefore even though the items are discounted, its not a bargain if your only going to wear it once. You have to love what you buy for it to be a bargain.

5. The question for every purchase

When your in a crowded store its easy to come out with lots of different items that don’t work together. And thats not successful shopping, it’s not how much you buy, but what it goes with. How many outfits you can create.

So before grabbing everything ask yourself…What 3 pieces of clothing would I wear it with, and is it my style?

 6. Up style

The sales are the perfect time to be able to buy items you would never normally buy, so use this time to but statement designer pieces that would add to your wardrobe.  You don’t want to just buy more of what you already have, so look for items which would update your wardrobe, sales isn’t a time for bulk buying. Use it to find unique designer discounts too, which are normally much more expensive.

7. Style it classic

Don’t buy the trends that are going out of style, during the sales you want to keep it simple and classic, to your style, so you will be able to wear it even when the trends change. Stick to your style, fashion can only look good if it fits into your style and body shape. You need to buy the items that add to you, not because it’s trending.

8. Don’t be late

Weather your online or instore, the most popular & most discounted will sell out very quickly. Faster online then instore, popular online items can sell out it the first 15 minuets of the sale launching. Large popular brands like Zara close their store a couple of hours before launching the sale to maximise the site capacity. This will mean there are more purchasers on site and items will sell much quicker, so be prepared.

9. Online shopping tips

-Have your debit/credit card out, many shops during sale time won’t save your items until you’ve paid, so make sure your cards out for a quick transaction- or for even faster payment use Paypal, as it saves all your details.

-Have access to good WiFi, sites may often be running slow with the large volume of customers on their site, so make sure your Ipad/computer is near fast good quality WiFi, for that faster loading time.

-Have the websites already open on separate tabs, This will allow you to flick quickly through the e-stores you’re wanting to shop from much faster then searching each store individually.

10. Don’t worry

If one of your favorite items is sold out before you’ve been able to get your hands on it, for whatever reason. Don’t panic, many stores start to receive stock back, about a week after their main sale day. As thats the time when customers begin to send their unwanted items back. This is often when you can find your favourite sale items at much cheaper costs, as some shops apply multiple discounts after their main sale date.

All my l0ve hope this helps…Dotwiz X.

PARTY LIKE KENDALL JENNER…|2 min read|

kendalEverybody has gossip about, and fallen head over heels in love with Kendal Jenner’s 21st birthday dress, its the ultimate silver party dress a complete knockout. Designed by LaBourjoisie, a bespoke dress covered in Swarovski crystals designed especially for Kendalls 21st, and attached to a $9,000  price tag. Even Kendal couldn’t deny her love for the dress. Taking on a similar Paris Hilton sass, with Hiltons 2002 New Year dress, but giving it the Kendal twist has turned the over priced over, crystalised dress into every girls dream…And I know where to find it, and it has a smaller price tag.

The small fashion label Pink Boutique, have designed a lookalike dress, practically identical. For a much smaller price tag of £75.00, and it comes in a choice of two sparkling colours silver or gold.  It has completely channeled Kendal’s Swarovski vibe, and given us a party dress from the magazines, into our over crammed wardrobes. The dress isn’t covered in Swarovski crystals, but it’s a stunning replica of Kendal’s glitzy gown. Perfect to either re-make Paris Hiltons New Year dress, or send Kendal spinning in a Swarovski vibe, a perfect fit for any party.

Lots of love…Dotwiz X.

PARTY VIBES IN FUR…

fur

This fashion season is taking a hit of furs and sequins…textures are vital this winter. And I’m loving these fur party vibes…Created by Zara’s faux fur minaudiere and shouting out  Dark and Edgy whist being the perfect size for a party, and a BF for any little black dress. This mini fur bombshell will add to any party vibe and is totally affordable at only £29.99! It comes it two stunning colours although I love the black one, its a classic party accessory.

Its the perfect size for a lip gloss, and phone…All a girl needs at a party. A truly fashionable piece, with its faux fur lining and glitzy gold chain it pulls of any girls party styles. Its secured by a little popper/button clip..(not really sure how to describe it 🙂 )

I like to wear mine with either a little dark party dress…normally black or gold…And a cute pair of heals. Or like in the image, I also use it for the perfect little bag when I want to run into town with just my phone and money, and want my hands free for looking through clothes, and pair it with dark trousers and your favourite top/jumper :))).

Lots of love…Dotwiz X.
