Hello and welcome to my Atelier! I hope you enjoy this little nook I have created on the internet where it will be filled with a personal style diary and a little creative space for me to express myself about my love of fashion. This is going to be a space where I will show my wardrobe which I have carefully curated over the years. It will include outfit posts, and how I would style something and also my babies, my hand bags and shoes. My excuse for all this is that “I have no children!” Except my little puppy Chloe who will be included in my blog as she is the love of my life and being a puppy mum is something new to me.
My closet is very monochrome and I am trying to break out of that by adding a splash of colour so please join me in this journey – but let’s be honest, my favourite colours are black, white and grey!
My ethos about fashion is to wear what you want and what makes you feel happy. But the most important thing to keep in mind it is not what you wear but how you wear it!! (Cheesy, I Know)
My wardrobe is very collective and is a mixture of all sorts of trends, and therefore you do not have to be on trend but you must always wear something you love. By all means I am a big shopper, so if I am loving a trend you can bet your bottom dollar that I will be going out and buying something I love.
If you are making an investment piece you better bloody love it and wear it to death. A lot of my accessories are luxury but I love the high street but as I have gotten older, I have realised that quality is better than quantity (I am a little granny – which you will soon discover). I will also include a monthly favourites post about all the things I am enjoying that month, as well as a monthly wish list (and that list gets bigger and bigger)
As a big lover of jewellery I will focus on the brands and the mixture of stuff that I have collected over the years from all over the world and from my travels. The bigger the ring the better and the more bracelets attending your arm party the better – doesn’t everyone think that?!
As Iris Apfel (my spirit animal said) “Life is gray and dull; you might as well have a little fun when you dress.”
There will also be the lifestyle posts about life, there will also be some interiors inspirations and wish lists. There will also be the occasion snippet about beauty (who doesn’t enjoy a Space NK haul!?) but I am not a makeup artist or expert, whenever I try to do a smoky eye I look like a panda or a rough little G who has got into a punch up! But saying that, I am addicted to LIPSTICK!!!
I hope that my blog is a little piece of inspiration to you, and if you have a few minutes during the day you will find out about luxury items I am loving or what I am not loving about them which may be the case in some situations and I could be saving you some mula (thank you thank you I know I am lovely), and the fab high street gems that I have discovered too.
Welcome and I hope you enjoy my Atelier full of fashion bits and my thoughts, and remember this is a light and happy side to the internet, so I hope to sprinkle a little bit of positively to your day.
