The Vampire Diaries Inspired Outfit

The Vampire Diaries Inspired Outfit
Hey everyone.
Okay let’s be honest. Who hasn’t pictured themselves as a character on their favourite TV show? Well, I definitely have and today’s post is about what I’d wear if I were a character on The Vampire Diaries. Let’s start off:
The Jacket
If you’ve watched The Vampire Diaries on The CW then you’d know that it’s pretty much a dark show with a lot of dark – mostly black – outfits. This leather jacket would fit in perfectly with that mix. It’s also comfy enough to keep you warm in the cool Mystic falls air, with a hoodie just incase it rains.
The Top
Just something simple to throw on under the jacket and surprisingly this is the most expensive item of clothing here when I thought it would be the jacket or the necklace.
The Heels
I really like these shoes – wish they were mine. Yes, walking around in the woods in heels can be quite difficult, but Caroline manages just fine.
The Sunglasses
In an attempt to keep with that mysterious vibe that the Salvatore brothers seem to emanate, I’d rock these semi dark shades.
The Jeans
These jeans are quite a contrast to the dark theme that I’m trying to keep, but, I just felt that something light was needed in this ensemble. Comfy, fitting jeans just ready for an impromptu chase in the woods.
The Lips
I have a weakness for a dark red lip. They’re just so bold yet subtle at the same time.
The Necklace
This outfit was in desperate need of some colour, hence this gold necklace. Just something simple and nice.
The Ring
And how could I possibly forget my daylight ring! I wouldn’t want to burn. It’s a nice, simple, vintage ring from ASOS. I like it – a lot. I should probably get myself one.
What do you think of this outfit?
Do you watch Vampire Diaries too?
What do you think your role would be if you were a part of the show?
Bye everyone and I’ll talk to you in the next post.

Valentines Date Destination: The Beach

It’s February! And that means that Valentines Day is only a short time away. Some of you – the non singles – will most likely be going out with your significant others that day, while the rest of us find something else to do.
Some people may not have even planned where they’ll be going or what they’ll be wearing for their date. I’ve come up with some destination outfits that could give you inspiration while you plan out where you’re going or to just give some inspiration on some outfit ideas.

Valentines Date Destination: The Beach

Today’s destination is the beach. Spending a day at the beach can be really fun, for me it’s a place where you can relax and have fun.
Swimsuit
For the swimsuit I chose something really cute and simple. The swimsuit is really the focal point of this outfit, it has the most colour and really catches the eye, without being too much. This comes from Topshop.
The Cover-Up
I threw in a little coverage for a day at the beach with a cover-up.  I really like this one that goes to about mid-thigh with all it lace and fringe-y goodness from John Lewis.
Shoes
Overall I wanted to keep this look pretty simple, but I also wanted every piece to have a voice and these shoes just mellowed right in with everything -in terms of matching – while of course still standing out a bit by bringing in some gold to the mix. These shoes are just so cute and practical for the beach. These shoes are from Sperry Top-Sider.
Bag
Of course if you’re planning to spend a day at the beach you’ll need a bag to cart everything around in. This bag has a lot of space just for that purpose while still managing to look chic. This bag comes from Saks Fifth Avenue.
Accessories
Lastly were at accessories. Since it was basically a day out at the beach I chose something where you could go into the water without worrying about having to take off all your accessories before going in. This is a handmade Mustique bracelet from JIYA.
And so there you have it my Valentines beach outfit.
If you’re interested in any of the clothing items mentioned above you can check them out using the links below.
*P.S – Don’t mind the chair, I was just trying to add to the beach theme.
Bye everyone and I’ll talk to you in my next post!

Fashion Friday #1

 Hey all, I know it’s been a while since my last post and that my posting hasn’t been too regular this month, but the final exam rush has started way earlier than I expected with all those assignments to do and tests to study for. But, I will still try my best to do posts at least twice a week. That’s all that I can promise at this point and come June, things should be back to normal if not better.
So, on with the post. Today’s post is ‘Fashion Friday’ where I have concocted – I’d say one of my best clothing combinations yet.
Fashion Friday #1
Blazer
This is a gold sequinned blazer from Topshop at a price of $74. I couldn’t find this particular jacket anywhere on the internet, but here’s a pretty good look alike, still from Topshop for £39.20. I really like the jacket with all it’s sequins and such, it’s simple yet it says a lot, and it really just brings the whole outfit together.
Dress
I have a crush on this dress. It’s a white dress with just a tad bit of floral print. There’s a cut out in the mid-centre and a partial gold belt at the front. Shape-wise it’s just a sleeveless body hugging dress, but the detailing just really makes it pop and stand out. The dress is from Sass and Bide – they have some outrageously gorgeous clothing.
Shoes
I chose these shoes as the colour really highlighted the floral pattern of the dress and also because those shoes are just something else. I’ve been wanting a pair of sneaker styled stilettos. These come from heels.com here for $89.99 and their from the brand ‘Priviledged’ and right now up until February 5th, heels.com is offering free second day shipping as well as free return – so take advantage while you can.
Jewellery
I chose these earings because the outfit is already so out there that I just wanted to keep accessories minimal and simple. The 14K white gold diamond studs come from JCPenney at a price of $833.33, but you can get a pair of zirconia look alikes at Amazon for a way lower price of $49.00 here.
Clutch
This clutch comes from Jimmy Choo at a price of $1,450 here, but that is outrageously expensive so I found some alternatives for you guys. At River Island you can get a somewhat similar clutch here for £12.00 or you could also get a completely gold envelop clutch at eBay for $11.48 here. $1,450 here, but that is outrageously expensive so I found some alternatives for you guys.
Sunglasses
I really like round sunglasses, these ones are from Chanel for £220 here or you can get something similar at ASOS here for a way lower price of £10.
What do you guys think of this outfit?
What would you change?
Which items do you like most?
Bye everyone, and I’ll talk to you in my next post.
Stay classy.

#TheWinterProject – Christmas Present Ideas

#thewinterproject

This week it’s week 4 and this post will be about Christmas gift ideas for men and women and since I don’t really post anything about guys, let’s do their section first shall we.

For the boys

If you’re like me you find it very hard to find gifts for guys when you’re so caught up in the world of girl. Am I right? Well, for you all I’ve come up with a few gift ideas for the guys.

gfg(VRO)

Grooming Kit 

We all need to look our best right? And so how can you go wrong with a grooming kit. This grooming kit, seen above, from Sephora comes complete with a nail file, nail clippers, a lint pad, small scissors and . . . a cork screw? This one is in a good travel size, but you can get any other grooming kit that you wish.

Cologne

Some guys like cologne, and so if the guy you’re shopping for likes it why not get him some? You could get him a fragrance set like the one above or maybe just something similar.

Silly T-Shirt

Have a bit of fun and get them a T-Shirt with a silly caption, this ‘Sorry Girls, This Guy Is Taken’ Tee is a good example. You could even have a shirt custom printed with anything you want, maybe even with something they say a lot. It’s 21 days before Christmas so there’s still time.

Jewellery

Who says guys don’t like jewellery? The necklace is a Harry Potter Dark Mark Necklace, so if you have any Harry Potter Fans or just jewellery lovers in general then this piece would be a good gift for them.

Guy Kit

A guy kit comes filled with goodies for boys, for example ‘The Man Can’ in the picture above has some great things for guys.

Sea Salt Soap

You could always give something unusual, I mean who’s ever heard of sea salt soap? Or, of course, you could always think of something else unusual to give a little spice to your Christmas gifts this year.

Teddy Bear

Teddy bear. Why? Why not? What would be better than to see that look on his face when he unwraps a teddy!?! Priceless! Give a try and tell me the reaction in the comments of this post later. We can make a game of it.

*Bonus – You could always bake something as little something something extra with the presents.

For the girls

Now onto the girls.

GFG1(VRO)

Friendship Bracelet

Get one for her and you (or maybe for her and her friend if you’re her mom, or, uncle . . . or something). Friendship bracelets mean a lot and would make a great Christmas present. Get a design that would suit both wearers.

Makeup Sample Set

Are you shopping for someone who has just starting to try out makeup or someone who likes trying new makeup products? If so, then this SmashBox Try It Kit would be great for them. It would give them the chance to try out a variety of products without your wallet having to suffer.

Travel Brush Set

This is good for girls that travel or those who just like to have a makeup touch-up here and there when they’re not a home. This set is travel friendly as it is travel size and so wouldn’t take up much space in a purse or suitcase.

Perfume

Have a girly girl or a perfume lover on your hands? Then get them ‘Dot’, a highly raved  Marc Jacobs perfume.

Makeup Bag

I know I don’t like using the same makeup bag over and over again, so add to her makeup bag collection. Get a makeup bag design that embodies her personality – there are just so many to choose from. You can check some out here or here.

Handbag

Handbags can be really expensive, but the one above is a real steal as it looks so great for such a reasonable price. But, if you want to splurge on a handbag this season go ahead. In the end it’s all about what you feel comfortable with.

So these are all the gift ideas that I came up with for guys and girls. What do you think?

Which ones would you get or would like to receive?

Later everyone, I’ll talk to you in the next post.

2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Model Roundup

The following pictures are of VS models at the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Just came across these and in my opinion most of these outfits are just too showy.

VS1 (VRO)

VS2 (VRO)

VS3 (VRO)

This goes in order of appearance.

Lindsay Ellingson: Decked out in a structural burgundy-hued minidress courtesy of Mugler Spring 2013, Lindsay took a more futuristic approach to sexy styling. To lighten the mood, she accessorized with powder pink pumps.

Karlie Kloss: Chose an off-the-shoulder, cleavage-enhancing LWD from Cushnie Et Ochs Resort 2014, and paired it with a white studded Rebecca Minkoff  ‘Coco’ clutch and black sandals.

Alessandra AmbrosioShowed off her toned physique in a red leather Anthony Vaccarello Spring 2014 look, which featured a daring open front and a triangle-shaped detail at the skirt’s hem. Metallic pumps and a gold cuff bracelet completed the look.

Toni GarrnThis gunmetal grommet-detailed look from Anthony Vaccarello’s Fall 2013 collection has been making the star-studded rounds in its various forms. Despite repeated air time, Toni wore the skin-revealing, one-sleeved LBD well, accenting it with a pair of black pumps and a silver cuff.

Sara SampaioDressed in a printed bandeau top and ankle-cut trousers with a dramatically ruffled waistline — in matching shades of soft pink, no less — the model went a more whimsical styling route in an Osman Spring 2014 look. She finished it off with black pointy-toe pumps and a wristful of black cuff bracelets.

Hilary Rhoda: The newly-engaged stunner selected Prabal Gurung pieces for the occasion, rocking a purple floral Fall 2013 dress and dusty pink and mauve double-strap Casadei for Prabal Gurung shoes. A bold red lip completed the look.

Adriana LimaThe Brazilian bombshell wore a one-sleeved colorblocked Emanuel Ungaro Fall 2013 look, which she accessorized minimally with black booties and a silver bracelet.

Izabel GoulartAs the only model of the bunch to go with a floor-length silhouette, Izabel wore a black cutout Versace Fall 2013 gown with heavy ruching down the front, slick sleeve material, and a serious thigh split. Patent black pumps rounded out the look.

Candice SwanepoelThe model chose an itty-bitty LWD from Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2013 Couture collection for her red-carpet appearance. The long-sleeved mini showcased cutouts at the arms and, as you may have noticed, one giant cutout down the front of the dress, leaving ample room for Candice to show off a long chain-link Lorraine Schwartz necklace. A small black clutch and strappy black pumps were her only other accessories.

What do you think?

Do you share my view of some of these outfits being too revealing?

Let me know your opinions and views guys.

Bye, I’ll talk to you guys in the next post.

#TheWinterProject – Winter Accessories

#TheWinterProject - Winter Accessories

Winter, winter, winter, it means so many things; the start of colder weather and the ending of the school term – both of which I’m excited for. And, winter also means that I can break out my favourite winter accessories.

Scarves and mittens!

I love these accessories for winter, they keep you warm and their stylish too. Winter could possibly be my favourite season of the year; I just love how cold it gets, even here in the Caribbean – although it doesn’t get THAT cold here. But, scarves and mittens at night time are definitely an option.

There are just so many types of scarves my favourite though is the infinity scarf, there are just so many ways that you can wear it and that’s good for me because I like to switch things up every now and again.

In my opinion though, mittens keep you way warmer than scarves do and they’re my favourite of the two. They can be so comfy, chic and even kind of corky at times.

So, what would you say are your favourite winter accessories?

Bye, I’ll talk to you in the next post.
