                                                                    Close up of scale make up 

001)          Halloween is traditionally known for it's creepy and gruesome looking outfits, which are based on scary stories or characters from horror film such as vampires 'Dracula',witches, monsters 'Frankenstein', mythological creatures, devils and even zombies. Even though this particular day is all about embracing your inner darkness, it has been acceptable to take inspiration from terrifying looking figures and put your own spin on it by mixing it into your own personal style.

002)         For this years Halloween themed outfit, I was inspired by the evil Greek mythological monster Medusa who had living snakes in her hair , which turned her victims into stone. I recreated this serpent look by wearing my python skater dress, as it's triangular cut out waist detail and vibrant cold blooded  print gave an edgy twist to my carnivorous reptile look. Shoes wise I wore my chelsea ankle boots as it's androgynous style gave a masculine touch to my colourful outfit.  Finally make up wise I recreated the dresses design by creating a scale print around my eyes, which matched the colour scheme of my outfit.

001)    The quirky bohemian trend has had a A/W make over as this season is all about layering different prints and textures, as it allows your outfit to become bolder and more creative . This hippie and Native American inspired look has been given an edgy make over, as it has collaborated with this winter’s biker chic trend.

002)    For this outfit I wore my ethnic monochrome baby doll top with my paisley print skater skirt, as both prints mixed together gave the illusion I was wearing a 60's bohemian shift dress.  I then layered the two-piece with my fleeced parka jacket, as the pleather coat gave a rock biker chick twist and complimented the neutral tones in my outfit.

Kelly Brook's A/W lingerie line for New Look

                         Balconette bra  & Satin Brief (*) - Kelly Brook lingerie line at New Look.

001)          A few days ago I received this glamorous 50’s inspired lingerie set from Kelly Brook’s new A/W line.  Like her past collections for New Look the curvaceous model has based her designs on vintage fashion, which focuses on allowing women to embrace their inner pin up girl as the sultry sets are made with lace, frills and pleated satin.  Each piece has been created to help make finding the right bra and pantie combination a lot easier, as the sets aim to make you feel confident in your own skin and capture an essence of your personality through it’s quirky choice of prints and colours.
002)         At first glance you can instantly see how the pin up themed mood board has inspired this seasons lingerie line. The creativity behind each piece has shown how Kelly and her design team at New Look wanted to change the appearance of our undergarments by making them look sophisticated, sleek and edgy. However it was the brands interpretation of modern vintage fashion, which really caught my eye as the choice of accessorizing both pieces with bows made this piece become more fashionable and less intimidating to wear. 

003)    The structure of the balconette bra gives the illusion you’re wearing a mini bralet, as it emphasizes the definition of your waist and enhances your bust by giving your cleavage a natural lift. Whilst the flirty frilled briefs V cut shape is perfect for pear shapes, as it trims down your hips and helps elongate your legs.  However if you’re a hourglass this particular style of lingerie can help create curves. As well having the opportunity to purchase elegant and affordable underwear on the high street allows you to have the opportunity to invest in great quality lingerie, which match your own personal style.

001)    Military themed looks return this autumn season, as camouflaging shades such as khaki, olive green and beige have given smart casual wear an army cadet twist. The autumnal season is about exploring with other naturistic colours, which we find within leaf shades  as the more warmer shades such as yellow and red allow us to have the opportunity to give our outfits some life with a pop of colour.

Accessory wise I wore my geometric choker necklace, as the vibrant pink shade of the necklace matched the rosy tones in my floral jacket. Shoes wise, for my smart casual look I wore my sandal heels, as the neutral heels worked within my outfits naturistic inspired colour scheme and gave sophisticated touch to my floral military look.
