Best Dressed at the 2015 Emmys

Hiya everyone, again! ♡

A mentioned in my "Orange is the new Red Carpet" earlier, here are my picks for best dressed.

Again, no spoilers on winners of awards or plot-line spoilers. 

Enjoy the read 

Orange is the new Red Carpet

Hiya everyone! Happy Monday ♡

In the early hours of this morning (South African time) the 67th Emmy Awards took place in a sweltering Los Angeles. Now, if you haven't heard who the winners are - never fear. No spoilers!

There weren't many that really wowed me, but there were a good deal of well dressed. Whilst going through the galleries (I need to check about 7 different websites to see if I have looked through all of the looks, get the best pictures, and see if I can find all of the designers) I noticed a recurring theme or two.

I noticed that I was liking a lot of the outfits from the Orange is the New Black ensemble. So, I did a whole post on their outfits! I am still deciding, but I think Laura Prepon may have been my best dressed of the night

I will be doing another post later today on my other best dressed ladies.

How was your best dressed out of the OITNB crew?

Top 9 Looks from Tory Birch's NYFW Show

Hiya everyone ♡

New York Fashion Week is coming to an end soon so I thought I would do a few more posts of my fave looks.

This evening I am showcasing Tory Burch's Spring '16 RTW collection.

I am loving the colour combinations, the white and blue with hints of orange (blue's complimentary colour) and mustard are fab - and the touches or foiling are gorge too! 

Please comment and let me know your thoughts! One thing I don't like is that the models look absolutely devastated with life! 

If you would like to see the whole collection, then click here.

Top 9 Looks from Bagdley Mischka's NYFW Show

Hiya everyone ♡

As I mentioned yesterday, I have been checking out a few shows from New York Fashion Week. Here is another installment of "Top 9 Looks".

This is Badgley Mischka's RTW Spring 2016 line and is filled with floral and butterfly prints, lace, and white. I am really loving the whimsical and ethereal feel of all of the dresses.

Which is your fave?

Top 9 Looks from Lauren Conrad's NYFW Show

Hiya everyone ♡

I've been checking out a few New York Fashion Week shows and thought I would share my top looks. Lauren Conrad, from Laguna Beach and The City fame, collaborated with Kohls to launch her very own "LC" range. This year she showcased her latest ready-to-wear line at NYFW. 

Just in case you didn't know, a ready-to-wear range is just that - yank it off the rail and wear as is. What some don't understand is that most runway shows are showcasing designers design ability as a work of art as opposed to something that someone will necessarily wear on the streets. I always used to think "who would ever wear that??" but I have now come to the realisation that it's ART we are looking at. I also love how the clothes, accessories, hair and makeup all tell a story - it's so much more intricate to what I used to think.

So, have a look at my picks below and tell me which is your fave!

Tamara Chérie Dyson for MRP

Hiya everyone 

This week is the busiest for me at work and I was with family this past weekend, so I apologise that my first post for the week was on a Wednesday afternoon. I am working on some really cool content so keep your eyes peeled (perhaps even sign up by email to the right #justsaying).

Tamara Chérie Dyson was the winner of the 2014 Elle Rising Star Design Award. She beat out 6 other finalists to be crowned the winner of this accolade. Part of her prize was to design a range from MRP which was released last week.

I have decided to take pieces from her range and style a few outfits for you, I hope you like them! 

Please let me know below which outfit is your fave!
