Minimalism for a fashionista

Arrghhhh this post is sooo late! Not on my usual Friday! (Bah, Humbug! 😂) Since vacay has finished, it has been so busy at work! (Sowiee fans :?) So I’m going to have to see if I can stick to my two days or will I have to post once a week? Mmmm. Will have to see how my schedule pans out. Anyways let’s leave that there and continue with the fun bits! Are you ready? Steady? Reeeaddd! 👇☺

I am massive fan of accessories. Be it an ‘it’ bag, jewellery, new makeup or a new gadget! . You could have the most simplest or glamorous outfit but with  the right accessory it can make you feel like a million dollars.

Here I show you a few of my fave dainty pieces that will rock any of your outfits!

Pendants

I adore simple pendants as they are so minimal and delicate. I received this necklace as a Secret Santa gift at the School I work in and I love it! It has a small circular Pendant, with silver glitter inside. It hangs on a very delicate gold chain. I usually pair this with a casual look. So a pair of jeans, over sized shirt or a tee. When I received this, it was sitting on a River Island necklace card, however price is unknown (sowiee).

Layered Necklaces

This trend has been seen quite a lot in SS2014/15 and it looks like it will continue into AW2015/16!

I love the fact that it looks as if I’m wearing three necklaces at once! But it is literally one delicate chain with three beautiful pendants.

I’ve teamed this up with a navy shift dress but you can be super cas and wear it with maxi dress. I would say stick to something plain up top, rather than pattern. As patterns may distract the viewers eye from the simplicity of the pendants.

However if you do feel like ‘upping’ the neck candy game, then why not choose a large statement piece and then off set with a longer delicate one?

For layered necklaces there are no rules to having just three on one chain. If you want to add lots of necklaces individually (make sure they are different lengths so we can see each one) then go for it!

Minimalistic Finger Rings

I literally own sooooo many rings! But my only problem is, I only wear them when my nails have grown nicely and to a decent length! (No falsies here!) I also have to make sure that my nails are painted as well, which means no nice hands, no rings 😕 (booooo, does anyone else do this???)

So when my hands are looking nice to me 😂 I love donning these simple finger rings.

I have so many different ones! Ranging from gold to silver. These rings are so versatile and can be worn across the fingers. I usually go for a grunge or a boho outfit with these.

There are so many variations to these rings you can wear chunky ones, jewelled ones, chained ones or you can even stack them up!

Selection of finger rings @Miss Selfridges, Topshop, Primark, New Look Fashion. Prices range from  £5.00-£10.00

Hand Candy

How about a fresh twist on hand jewellery? I have worn this look quite a lot in the warmer weather, with my plain black jersey dress.

You won’t need any other jewellery as your hands will do all the talking! These would look fab at parties, events or even weddings!

Love Heart Hand Jewellery @ a local boutique shop near me £3.00
Plain Gold Laser Cut Hand Jewellery @ Chinabox Clothing £8.00

Size 3 (feet) and under

The musings of a shoe-a-holic with small feet!

Hello peeps, and welcome back to Fash Fridays!

How many of you have heard the saying ‘the best things come in small packages’? Well, how can I deny that the saying is true?! (Vain? Me? Neevverrr!) 😆

I have always been a petite girl and if you have been following my blog, you will know exactly how tall I am! Being petite comes with lots of pros and cons as I am sure all you petite girls out there will agree.

But there is one con that totally bugs me about being small. My small, size 3 feet! (Sometimes a size 2 as well😣) I have struggled to find shoes that fit me perfectly. By perfectly I mean not falling off my feet whilst I’m walking or finding that perfect size 3 and thinking that obviously the elves and the shoe maker vary from shop to shop as the size 3 in this shop doesn’t fit me! Ugghh.

However, when you’re a shortie you learn a few tips and tricks (this applies to clothes and shoes) cos we shorties are nifty like that (high five!).

Here are a few of my fave tips to make sure your shoesies don’t fall off your feet and land in a puddle! (Personally tried and tested by me😆 -LOL if that’s even any consolation). (No trust me they’re good).

Fash Tip 1: Laces/Straps/Zips

Whenever I buy shoes I will always try and buy ones that have laces or straps. Laces and straps are the easiest way to make sure your feet stay inside your shoes and you don’t become Cinderella!

image

I always find that even when the shoes are a tiny bit too big the straps or the laces will always hold my feet in. You can have any straps you fancy, velcro or buckled.

image

Zips are good too especially on boots. You can pop your socks on, zip up and you’re good to go.

Fash Tip 2: Heel Grips

Try putting in some heel grips at the back of your shoes. There are many different ones available on the market such as stick-on ones or gel padded ones. These can help in making the shoe fit better and avoid the heel slipping off. Heel grips are inexpensive and are available in any shoe shops, department stores or even clothes stores (check out Primark, New Look or even H&M)

Fash Tip 3: Insoles

Now these are my lifesavers! They are my true babies in making sure my shoes fit perfectly! They are cheap and just like the heel grips, are available in most stores/shops.

image

I bought these from my local Primark and they were about £1.50. You can pick up some really cool designs and colours!

As you can see, at the back of the insoles there are various sizes. (Male and female ones, see pic below!) I usually cut along the female size 4 to ensure that if I do make a mistake I can then always cut back down to a size 3.

image

Depending on the fit of the shoe, I either lay the insole flat or fold in half to make the fit of the shoe better and voila that’s how I rock my size 3 feet and under, without becoming Cinderella!
