New Looks AW15 Collection

I’ve been scanning the New Look website the last few days and looking at what they have in the AW15 collection. Here are some of the Trends that they have:

Woodstock – Woodstock encapsulates end-of-the-summer bohemian notes, with a festival-inspired nod to ‘70s dressing. From frayed and faded denim to patchwork prints and pretty knits, this season is all about blending textures. Foundations of the trend begin with layered colour camis and jersey vests, worn under soft cotton crochet tops or sleeveless waistcoats for that relaxed and romantic silhouette. Alternatively, pair rich prints with mystic logo t-shirts for a retro grunge twist, and finish the look with tassel-trimmed heels or an over-the-knee boot, this season’s essential piece.

Graphic Esstentials – From monochrome pairings to camel colours, graphic essentials revive wardrobe staples with new shapes and fabrics that mark a new season. Think liquorice lines, rich jacquards and necklines that draw inspiration from ‘60s silhouettes; all accessorised with splashes of silver and rose gold. Minimal styling drives the trend and is built around the ease of layering. With a staple sleeveless jacket as a base, combine it with a roll neck knit and ribbed patterns for a retro look. Alternatively, include bold logos in two-tone graphics for a modern urban twist. Formal shirts can be effortlessly dressed down with animal print mini skirts, and finishing touches come in the form of an oversized bag or caged sandals.

Uniform – This season offers a salute to military style, with rich details and autumn ready tones bringing that modern touch to utility wear. A colour palette of olive, teal and lime plays throughout the trend and chunky zips, eyelets and studs showcase the military precision. Masculine hard-wearing khakis are softened through floaty waterfall jackets, while monochrome Aztec prints and pops of peppermint green keep a formal look energised. For a modern twist on a classic day look, team a white blouse with ripped skinny jeans and khaki heels and give accessories extra statement with a fusion of cobalt, teal and lime in the details. For that day-to-night look, pair a crisp shirt with a sleeveless jacket and go for a reptilian bowler bag as an alternative to the classic clutch.

Bloomsbury – Bohemian style isn’t just fixed to festival season; it actually has a lifespan that carries through into autumn. A rich palette and mixture of prints help revive the 70s aesthetic into something wearable on a daily basis, with cognac and rusty tones introducing this teaser into next season. Print wise, it’s all about spicy florals and romantic paisley, which are perfect for livening up a pair of wide leg trousers or top. Pussy bow blouses make a retro return, and look great when paired with a classic denim A-line skirt, as shown by Alexa Chung. Texture is an important part of the 70s aesthetic too, from suedette to sheer, and metallic ribbed detail in zig-zag tops. Bloomsbury is a rich concoction of colour, print and texture, and gives the bohemian style a feeling of urban maturity.

Here are some of my favorite picks and possible purchases over the next few months, as I’ll be able to work these into my New York Wardrobe aswell…

Mulberry Lust

Mulberry was founded in 1971 by Roger Saul and his mother Joan—in 1973 they opened a factory in Chilcompton, Somerset, England. Mulberry established itself as a British lifestyle brand, noted for its leather poacher bags including the binocular bag and dispatch bag. The range includes male and female fashions, leather accessories, and footwear.

Ever since I can remember I’ve always loved Mulberry, the bags are classic, elegant timeless British luxury. The only downside is the price tag!? It’s a goal of mine to own a Mulberry bag, even if it means I’ve to to save for a whole year I will get one!!!

With going to New York in December in hoping I may pick one up in the sale? Here two of my Mulberry bags I’m lusting over…

A very small fortune at £5,000!!  This will have to go on the back burner for now…

This one isn’t to badly priced and is achieveable to save up for..

Happy Monday People 😊

Sheridan Smith

  
Sherdian Smith 34, is an OBE English actress.  She is perhaps best known for her roles in The Royle Family (1998) from 1999-2000 were she played Emma, Anthony Royle’s (Ralf Little) girlfriend, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps (2001), again playing Janet, Ralf’s girlfriend, and Rudi in three series of Gavin & Stacey (2007).

She has most recently starred in television dramas like Mrs Biggs, for which she won the BAFTA TV Award for Best Actress for playing Ronnie Biggs’ wife, The 7.39 and Cilla, where she played Cilla Black.  In 2015 she starred as cancer patient Lisa Lynch in the one-off BBC drama the C Word and the most recent as policewomen Jo Gillespie in the ITV drama Black Work.

I can honestly say that in the last four dramas that Sheridan has starred in have been great performances by her and has made them a good watch.  The C Word drama was one that hit home for me and brought back memories or how it was when my dad got diagnosed with 5 different types of cancer and seeing that person you love so much go through that, it’s heartbreaking.

I’d just like to say a massive well done to Sheridan who takes these roles on and makes them here own and produces great results at the end of it.. I’m looking forward to the next drama your going to be in…

PRIMARK Sandals 

I was in Nottingham over the weekend for a friends Hen Do.. While I was there I had a little wonder around the shops.  While waiting for some friends who were busy buying some MAC make up I spotted some nice sandals on a lady who was in there shopping, I asked where she got them from and she said Primark.

I was shocked because they looked more expensive!!! So off I toddled to primark while the Girls I was with were still shopping in MAC..  I headed straight to the show section upstairs when I got there, I spotted them straight away and I think it was meant to be for the gold ones as there was only one size 6 left, bonus! The other pair I got were the same style but in a snake skin but had to get a 7 as there was no 6’s, so I may try and swap at my local one if not I’ll just keep them.   

 These were a right billy bargain, £4.00 each.
They are so comfortable, like slippers!
