Floral Print Jumpsuit

Floral Print Jumpsuit

Whenever I think of jumpsuits it takes me back to the 70s, Elvis Presley and ABBA. I grew up with Elvis and ABBA playing in my house, I was literally the ‘Dancing Queen’ with my killer moves doing the boogie. You know what I am talking about with all those videos I post on Instagram (hehe). Times like that makes me think of those super groovy glitter, spandex, neon circus costumes/jumpsuits, however as good as they were back then, kudos to our amazing high-end designers for making us see them in a completely different light. Making them, the new reinvented Jumpsuit. Best part they can adapt to any occasion night or day. It’s easy to wear. Dress up or dress down. They are good for skinny and curvy bodies.  Sounds to good to be true. Wait! Don’t be too quick to judge just yet. Give it a try and see for yourself. Here’s how I paired this look.

P.S: Another fashion tip, when it comes to pairing up jumpsuits is that choose the right footwear. It can make or break your look. See what I picked!

Hope you have a lovely day!

Love

To Plane To Minimal – Shirt

Hello my lovelies,

Where shall I start!? My mornings have been busy and days busier, but, here I am! Again ! just to gear you up with all those fashion trends which are cooler and easier to follow. One thing we must admit that there are many who have been endowed with looks but fail miserably to carry it out. This sets celebrities apart from us, they know what to wear and when. In the pursuit of making your lives more stylish, I was in search of a designer who was more practical in his approach and had a thing for functional and modular clothing. And I found “Smart”. Smart is his name and so is he. He owns a brand called ‘ To Plane ‘and most of his pieces are Unisex. I must confess that when it comes to his profession, smart is very much ethical. I found all of his designs interesting, but I will be sharing with you the one which fascinated me the most. You have often been confused in choosing the OOTD when it comes to going on a date on a hot day. Opt for a shirt dress. It not only just adds to your oomph level but is also very comfortable. Chose your favorite color and flaunt your style. You can also choose a basic striped shirt dress, if that’s your style. Mine is white. I paired mine up with an ivory colored Panama hat, remember the sun? Nobody wants to go on a date empty handed and carry all that stuff you will need in the rest room to brush your face up, a handbag is a must. And for that, YSL is the what is the brand to look out for. Have we finished discussing all the things? No, wait! A shirt dress leaves those legs bare, exposing your sandals to attention. I wore my Isabel Marant for this look, but you can wear tennis shoes as well its okay to be different in fact I encourage you to. The beauty about To Plane is there’s room to add flair to your ensemble or just keep it as is Plane and Simple.

After spending some time chatting away until I made Mr. Smart, feel comfortable enough to play my game, I decided to do what I do best and ask him a few cheeky questions. to see what’s the first thing, that pops in his head.

The game goes a little bit like this: Smart Urhiofe (To Plane – Designer)

Q: my style is …
A: always simple, practical and clean.
 
Q: next stop is…
A: to finish launching the label and leave the UK.
 
Q: best part about my job is…
A: I govern my own time, style and creativity.
 
Q: if you weren’t a designer what would you rather be…
A: I would be an artist. I like painting while naked.
 
Q: best style decade was…
A: when people made things for a purpose and felt comfortable with themselves.
 
Q: nothing comes between me and my…
A: CRAZY THOUGHTS.
 
Q: women are sexiest in…
A: clothes that aren’t so revealing. I like the mystery, the surprise.
 
Q: I would never wear…
A: shiny tacky stuff.
 
Q: summer 2015 is…
A: one hell of a roller coaster ride.
Before we say our farewells ill let you in on a secret ‘To plane’ has an Exhibition coming up soon and I can not wait to see his new collection. Make sure to check him out on Instagram and his site to get your hands on the latest trends from To Plane.

Inspiration of the Week – Stripes

Inspiration of the Week – Stripes

When it comes to sartorial inspiration I am a sucker for stripes so whilst looking for the perfect stripe. One main reason why I have fallen absolutely head over heels for stripes is that you can easily accessorize these. I would just pick a chunky neck piece from a jewelry exhibition to go with a striped outfit.

I came across these  beautiful photos and thought I’d share with you, my lovely readers. This week INSPIRATION is STRIPES.

Louis Vuitton Women’s Cruise 2016 Fashion Show

Louis Vuitton Women’s Cruise 2016 Fashion Show

The luxurious fashion of Louis Vuitton has taken its provocative selection on a cruise with artistic director Nicolas Ghesquiere! Celebrities like Kanye West, Selena Gomez, and Kim Kardashian, along with 500 international attendees have clamored to the magnificent Bob and Dolores Hope Estate. The estate is located in Palm Springs, California. The breathtaking estate looks like a desert wonderland with galactic overtones. The massive pavilion structure was designed by John Lautner, who had been commissioned to build the beautiful estate in 1973. The worth of the estate is at a jaw-dropping $25 million. Lautner’s’ creation is his biggest project to date! 25,000 feet span out into the sultry landscape.

Louis Vuitton’s 2016 women’s collection compliments the setting perfectly! Lush bold tones, texture, symmetrical prints, and distorted shapes create a vision of space creatures who landed on Earth to serve up fabulous looks. Gorgeous earth-tones in olive green and bright red-orange hues adorn models. Geometric cut-out patterns seem to be making a come back to the runway as well! White gowns with leather belts and sewed on pieces accentuate the modernist appeal. The LV Cruise collection is all about high cut dresses that are loose in fit to give off a flowy look. There is also a futuristic theme provided by Ghesquiere. The shoes were clunky heels and combat style boots. Louis Vuitton added a touch of sharply designed denim shorts with a jacket to match!

Mad Manning wore breezy black pants with a loud multi-colored jacket dazzled with leather trim frills, and a studded torso piece that cascaded down around the waist. The focus of the collection gives off an effect like you’re vibrantly dreaming about a sci-fi paradise. What’s so brilliant about this collection is how the looks can be worn without adding anything else. The clothes are statement pieces on their own and they look comfortable for the summer. A variety of these pieces can also be worn to job interviews with a messy bun for an eccentric style in the fall.
