INSPIRED BY…THE ARTIST

 

Get set to unleash your inner flapper girl as The Artist brings back the roaring twenties to all our wardrobes. Even with all the Oscar buzz & annoying ads (does it really need those awful ads to promote it?!), the fashion of old Hollywood still stands out beautiful.

 

Think fabulous fringing, cute cloche hats, faux fur stoles, dainty femine shoes, silk gloves & costume jewellery.

I’m gonna embrace the silent movie genre & let the pictures do the talking!!;P

HEADS UP-HEADSCARVES!!

A cunning disguise!!

Just a short post on the humble headscarf! An accessory must-have for Summer & they can be snapped up for next to nothing if you’re a bit strapped for cash- RESULT! Raid your Momma’s wardrobe or have a good dig round the local charity shop.

They also cover up my frizzy, untamed mane of hair & can cover up yucky, roots.  You can use them to tie your bun or plait, tie them in a bow or wrap them around you head like an eighties rockstar!! But you may want to avoid covering your whole head up, it may be okay for you Granny….but still. They can also be used a s a disguise-as demonstrated beautifully by Audrey above!!

 

A little bit Axel Rose!!

Think this might be my fave!

Pretty make-up too!

Blue eyeshadow NEVER looks this good in real life!

Spotty models!

*Rex

Now all I need is Rhianna’s cute as pie curls!!(A girls gotta dream!)

Try it yourself & you’ll be head & shoulders above everyone!!

XoXoX ;D (Buh-Bye!)

BE A BALLET BELLE!!

 

So the world is now obsessed with all things ballet & lashings of tulle.  I’m still reeling from watching Black Swan myself…spent most of it hiding behind my hands.  Certainly not what I remembered from ballet class back in the day!

Kinda wish I had kept ballet up but once the teacher said she’d put me in a show, I had a meltdown & refused to return!!Think it might have been a little bit too hardcore for me though…perhaps my temperament served me well in this case!!

Mmm all the sorbet shades are simply delicious & a perfect antidote to the crappy weather outside….you can’t look like a gracious tiny dancer in gale force winds!!Ballerinas would probably take off in these gales !!

I’d love to rock an aul’ hair bun…..ballerina style of course!!So chic & classic!

 

Pirouette in pretty pink…& yellow too!!;)) Xx

Stylish Sista: Kesha

check out my armpit!

 

Fair play to Kesha, not only is she riding high in the charts with her infectious tunes but she’s also single-handedly increasing make-up sales the world over!! She’s got that glitter on her eyes…and well most of her face- okay than everywhere! More is more for Kesha & her outrageous make-up is a sure-fire way to make you stand out from the crowd.

Glad someone’s found some new fab looks for us to covet, rather than the reliable but slightly worn-out smokey-eye look. Is anyone brave enough to give it a go though? Perhaps, I’ll go all out & give it a whirl this Saturday!! Anyhoo, if anyone fancies recreating Kesha’s marvellous make-up, check out BarryM who do a range of the brightest, glitteriest eye-shadows EVER! (they have some tutorials on their website too if you’re into that sort of thing!)

Last of the mohicans?surely not!

 

While I’m lovin the make-up, I’m not so convinced about the old mohican-mainly because I would look RIDICULOUS & it looks like a whole lotta effort & hairspray! But for an awards ceremony it looks immense (maybe not for who evers stuck sitting behind you though..)- I think a small quiff would work just as good for real-life & majorly reduce hairspray fume emissions..result!!

'I gots style'

Kesha’s a bit underrated in the snobby fashion style stakes, in my opinion.  I for one am slightly fed-up with the usual suspects  that all the magazines seem to worship-the bondage dress, nude court shoe & giant hair brigade. It’s yawn inducing. To get you some Kesha-like style you gonna need you some:

-levi cut-offs (try Urbanoutfitters)

-Slashed band tees ( Truffleshuffle do some good uns’!)

-Ripped tights/fishnets

-Sequined anything!!

– Banged up cowboy boots

– Bangin’ bangles, knuckle dusters, cool chains, earrings & feathers galore! 

Who says you can have too many accessories? Well,pfiff to them!

More is deffo more in her case…& I likey!!

Hope Kesha keeps her fantabulous glungy look up for yonks! 😉

Stylish Sista : Hayley Williams

Candyfloss hair

Anyone who can carry off yellow eyeshadow, neon drainpipes & baggy hoodies is alright in my book! What’s even more impressive is that she manages to look perfect while rocking out & sweating buckets…irritating!

Rocking the red carpet

What’s EVEN more amazing is her magical rainbow hair! I heart it-granted walking down my street with orange hair would attract disapproving glares & I would most probably look like a complete tool but still…I love it on her. Major hair crush alert!

My fave Hayley looks though have to be her award ceremony outfits, fusing bright eye-catching dresses with rock chick attitude-RESPECT! She always mixes it up & deffo never gets stuck in a style rut.

No wonder she looks smug…darn that girl looks good!!;D X
