Oh, this year I went a bit crazy on the style front. I bought a few dream bags and shoes and also tried a few different things.
2015 also saw the birth of Dani’s Little Book of Fashion, a more structured approach to fashion on the blog.
It talks trends and style touches that are wearable and easy to incorporate. So which bits are my favourites? I am glad you asked…
Stepping out of the black Louboutin world, I went for nude and won’t look back! The Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 in nude patent is a wardrobe staple.
I always wanted some exotic leather shoes and when I saw the Christian Louboutin Pigalle Follies Mika Python, I just knew it had to be them; I’ve always had a think for snake skin… Although rather out there, they are quite neutral in a muted gold. Love.
Flats are a bit of a downer for me, usually more a necessity rather than taste, but these super quirky Office Retreat boy-ish brogues are just too cool for school in silver leather, cow’s hair and pointy toes.
After much deliberation, I decided to invest in a Chanel handbag. I went for the classic shape, in a smaller size, with some seasonal quirks. Could not be happier with my choice!
The first time I saw a Lulu Guinness Lips clutch I knew I had to have it. And I chose the black one, which is the perfect clutch.
So hard to choose… here’s a small sample.
Will have to be colour me pretty, on which I collaborate with Dove. It is a co-ord, it has bright colours, it says summer all over!
Quirky. I learnt to add a little bit more quirk to my wardrobe on a daily basis. This one has many ideas which can be used together or separately. All while warm!
That’s where it gets super hard. I’ve narrowed it down to three:
The House of CB cut out pencil dress, ideal for clubbing or sophisticated night out. Sexy, but not slutty. At least for me.
For a red carpet vibe, the House of CB plunge evening dress. Plunging neckline, thigh high slit, tons of glamour. O be worn carefully. I was skilfully taped and nipple daisy-ed on this one.
For a family party, this Luxêmme white dress is perfect. Too pretty.
Has to be the 70s bohemian look. A tough one to pull off without looking fancy dress. The right elements in the right dose is the key for any era trend.
Of course, my Sunday London Fashion Week outfit. Comfy and quirky, it had it all.
Another tough choice… I love this pinafore dress and bunny shirt, just too cute, and still dressy. Worn with courts in the office.
This Matalan suit is great too. A suit, but not too serious and stiff.
Fancy dress outfit
Obviously, my freakishly scary clown for Halloween. Tons of makeup, white contacts and plenty of crimping action going on. Oh, and blood. Lots os it.
Nothing says relax as a My Little Pony oversized fleece. This is two sizes too big and part of a pyjama set, but I just found the top at Primark, so bought it for £8 and couldn’t be happier.
Well, my Care Bear (grumpy, of course), is also a strong contender to this post! Both are so chilled the picture are crap!
What about you? What did you wear and fell in love with this year?
