These flowers scatters all over the fabric to hug around beautifully to flirt and bang on trend.These prints give a vintage feel and are very feminine.

Flowers are  always symbol of beauty whether single or in bunch and always associated with Spring. Spring a time of new life and something linked with nature so floral patterns or prints have always inspired designers from time to time and so is this year.
Not just the designer even a blogger like me got imbued with spirit of drawing something floral . Here i have posted few floral prints i designed sometime back and managed to put them together in photoshop today .

The New Block Heel

The comeback of

Block Heels !!! 

As earlier i was blogging about hottest shoe trends for Spring Summer 2011 so i am back with some additional information. The hottest and new trend in heels is Blockier.Take a look below at few block heel shoes .
Block heels are good alternatives to Wedges. The block heels goes with everything from spring summer dresses to maxi skirts, from cropped trousers to wide leg pants. The good thing about these heels is that they not only offer comfort but also elongates the legs.

Most of high street stores are with one or two good pairs of block heels. Block heels in my wishlist are :-

1. Black block heels from Topshop as seen in picture below  looks amazing.
Comfort ,Height ,Style all in one single black pair !

2. Take a look at the picture below . These are two tone block heels from Miss Selfridge worth £50 

3. My another favourite is in colour of the season .Yes an Orange pair of 70's block heel from Miss Selfridge.

Shoe Trends 2011

Wooden Element from Vintage Style to Snake skin 
Today its been lovely sunshine here in Coventry .Just back from my usual walk and on the way i been thinking how shoes are most important part of fashion accessories.For walk , for office  , for going out , for all moods a different style we carry.

 So i thought why not to blog about shoes today. Shoes are an accessory that determines our feelings and speaks about our personality.

To start with take a sneak peak at Runway collection .

I find designer shoes quite trendy and chic . I love the arty elements designer add in their collection as part of their personal style of creativity .Here in picture you can see McQueen's SS11 collage .When we talk of style and creativity i am also quite impressed by Marc Jacobs Spring Summer 2011 collection and the skills of interpreting the vintage style in a new way. The colour pallete reminds of sun's atmosphere that makes his collection look rich and elegant .

Vintage fashion style is not only a major return in fashion but also fastly growing among masses .The best way to be fashionable is definitely by mixing modern and vintage  trend .The shoe trends are mix of both  vintage and modern elements to make it look more stylish and chic.Thats why wearing a right kind of shoes is very important part of our look.

The key trends are block heels , platforms , kitten heels ,low court , man shoe, lace up boots ,espadrilles and wedges. The wooden element is from vintage and modern elements like buckles and studs , feathers , strappy features and use of snake skin  ,florals are all  IN  in 2011.

I also liked this pair from H & M's by Hasbeens.

Skinny Waist Belt features fabulous with denim outfits.

Fashionable Skinny Waist Belt

Hey Guys i was lucky enough to get hold of polka dot skinny belts from Dorothy Perkins for a Fiver. It was real bargain :) but not to worry as every high street store have shelved skinny belts.

Nipped in at the waist or just tied low in a knot ,a skinny belt is beautiful accessory to finish your look with this season.Their couldn't be a better investment than buying a skinny belt for these are must have accessories for SS11. Whether you are wearing summer dress or a pair of cropped trousers or a denim , the outfit looks more chic and beautiful when defined with  slim size belt.

Topshop 's  skinny  belts have details like  metal buckle ,studs in leather and some styles in plait .Among my favourite is ball chain slim size belt from Dorothy Perkins which can be tied in knots over . Some styles are available  with bow .

Slim belts are big trend .Wear them in different styles to define the silhouette. Tie them in Knots ,double them up ,wear them low on hips.

Lets look ahead into Spring's Bloom

 Floral Jacket with cropped flared Trousers Freshest Look of this Spring

In my past few posts i have talked about trousers and in this particular post i am again gonna talk about a trouser with complete spring look that you might fancy buying or you might try to recreate the look for lot more less.You have seen one of the look with full length flared jeans .Today i have brought flared trouser which is just above the ankles.Yes you have guessed it right it is cropped flare trousers .

Lets have a peek at the look  .Its the look from our very high street fashion strore Next.The look is dominated by spring florals but not in bright colour but in more subdued tone. Its 100 % cotton floral swing jacket worth £80 teamed with elastane black cropped flared trousers for £25 and double layer cream  pleated ( in  tucks ) top with button details on the neckline .To accessorize the look the model wears it with mink block heel sandals which is tagged for £45 and a beautiful corsage flower bag for £28 .I have  liked the look which gives a vibe of spring and vintage look but my favourite is this handbag that looks quite chic !

If your budget is less you can try recreating this look for less maybe with slight variations in colours and silhouette of jacket .But nothing beats at the end of the day this particular look because the main highlight is short swing jacket with cropped flare. Though few jackets like  Floral Jacket from Matalan £18 or Topshops Grey floral Jacket for £ 35 or  Fashion Unions Waterfall floral printed waistcoast £15 can be an alternative .
If you have any idea of better recreation of this look then please do get in touch on this blog.

OMG my handbag is more expensive than my skirt .

Matalan Sale fits  SS11 LOOK 

As PPC campaign been part of my profession from some years so sometimes i am quite enthusiastic to know  PPC bidding specially when news is all bout drop in economy.So which bid took my attention was of Matalan also when you are good bargain hunter . Finding bargains from Matalan became lot more easy for me when i read Matalan clothes from £ 1 .From time to time i do like to shop in Matalan not only because of prices but also their collection that matches the trend.
Anyhow back to Matalan fashion offer.Here is my Matalan Sale outfit that complete my SS11 LOOK.If you are bit strapped with cash don't worry for Sale are still there . Tip NO 1 that always work in fashion is  mix and match with something from your wardrobe as i do .

Here is the SS11 LOOK .
 I have matched my black blazer that i wear at work with the skirt from Matalan for £4 from sale as seen in picture no.2

1. Any  fitted blazer will do.
2.Skirt from Matalan £4
3. My old handbag from Matalan which i bought for £6 sometime back .OMG my handbag is more expensive than my skirt .
4. Skyscraper heels.
BOOHOOO i am ready for my summers.

Have your say what do you think about mixing old pieces with something that we buy on budget or just a bargain ?

Your blazers can work miracle  this summer .Here i have listed 3 blazers that you can wear with your elastic waisted skirts .
 These blazers are good to add glamour if you dont wanna show skin just wear your simple vest underneath . For more daring try matching bras.

Simple way to channel the 70's look

Hi i am back its raining outside so not going out for my walk .Here i am with my very simple way of styling into seasons look .As we know flared trousers with high waist smartly belted in are very much IN so i have tried to gather a look if you dont wanna experiment too much with colours as in my last post. To start with i have picked simple pair of wide leg jeans from asos .I have picked dark shade as i wanted to team it up with my old pair of top and belt :)  Yes we don't have to buy everything to have complete look always something is there in the wardrobe to mix and match .

No major accessories required for this particular look .A great addition to it is only a pair of killer heels which elongates the look of legs and add 70 's glamour. The focus of this look is again on trousers .Simple colour been complimented with a pair of heels that lengthens out the legs .

Overall the outfit gives 70's vibe.You can add more colour and accessories to the look .

Starting from
 1. Navy top with ruffle sleeves . Its my old top and i think it works very well with the look.
2.Flared jeans bought from Asos.
3.Old belt again.
4.My sandals that matches quite a lot with different pieces of outfits.
5. 70 'S look .

Hope you enjoyed it and might easily find this look without having much to buy . Keep coming and Take a look .

Trousers that shape your legs.

Here is quick styles for Tapered Cut trousers for 2011 summers.

Though wide leg trousers are must for the season but we all know  flared trousersuits with high waists and platform heels  ain't for everyone.So then what other alternative have to fit into the style of 70's .Don't worry i have tried to gather the trosers that shape your legs .The alternative trend is TAPERED CUT trousers.Here is a simple way to work the look without getting confused .

What i have done is i have picked one look of 70's style and then gathered few pieces to fit in the bill.

Fisherman's knit top in stripes can be mixed and matched with tapered cut trousers .This style of trouser is an  essential part of your wardrobe . Wear it with style instead of fabric tie belt i liked tapestry belt and platform heels.Choice is totally yours you can always work around this look according to your own liking or you can even make your own belt out of any old piece of outfit and cut it into zigzag order to avoid its trimming to shed threads and just wear it around with a knot.

Remember the focus of this outfit is the trousers that shape your legs and to emphasise them you want to pair them with great heel and belt.This is the way to get 70's look
