Trend or not: this is the all-time favourite summer top

Last year, when we it became a ‘trend’ we saw it being featured in its original horizontal drop just off the shoulders. But this year there are so many names and versions to the off-shoulder or bardot (named after Brigitte Bardot) top which I find it to be a sexier name! I love how its transformed from a simple off shoulder top to a more dramatic one that includes ruffles, puffed-up / bell sleeves or its even become a wrap-around shirt (making boring shirts look sexy). But is the off-shoulder-top really a trend? Is it really something that will be forgotten next year?

A fresh take on these comfy trousers

Everyone seems to be talking about so many trends this season. If you go online, on fashion blogs or social media all you see being featured are embroidered tops and bottoms, the gingham trend, off-shoulder tops, ruffles and all sorts of jeans (be it skinny, mom, high-waist, boyfriend, you name it) with embroidery, ruffles, raw ends and the story goes on and on. But I haven’t seen anywhere the very comfortable and easy to wear Tapered trousers. Is it because they are not so flattering to wear and a bit tricky to style?

Still on Christmas outfit shopping but not forgetting to Reuse and Restyle

We are a week before Christmas and I have bought absolutely nothing (including Christmas presents). Actually this is what I do every year, because a few days before Christmas all the sales start and I think it’s a bit useless to buy everything at full price. I was intending to do all my shopping this weekend but I had to make an urgent trip to Cyprus which sort of ruined my plans BUT this little trip will allow me to do some shopping from some of my favourite European high street brands! (Read more for a little secret regarding the pricing of European brands in the UK!).
