The difference between a jumpsuit, playsuit & romper

Playsuits, jumpsuits and rompers have become massively popular in last few years. What was once a selective trend is now worn by celebrities and consumers alike. Wearing a jumpsuit, playsuit or romper is super easy and can be dressed up or down. If you are unsure which one may be most suitable for you, take a look at our guide to the hottest trend in fashion.

Jumpsuits

image002 (1)

A jumpsuit is an item of clothing that incorporates a top and trousers in one. Jumpsuits can be worn on a number of occasions whether formal or informal. When it comes to choosing a jumpsuit it’s important to find one with the correct fit for your shape. Jumpsuits that are too tight are not only uncomfortable but can be highly unflattering.

If they’re too big, they can swamp your shape of make you look bigger than you actually are. Look for one that accentuates the waist, perhaps with colour or a belt. Also look at pant length and shape. If your pear shaped or curvy, go for styles that have wider legs in order to help balance your shape. When you’re wearing one for evening, shopping or special occasions make sure it’s easy to remove as you’ll need to be able to undo it easily if you need a toilet break.

Social Responsibility: Bottega Veneta

bottega

Ever wondered how some of the well-known fashion brands spend their money?

Besides reinvesting in new designs & product development and expensive ad campaigns, I’ve found out some Brands that put some money being their social responsibility policies. I will share these with you throughout the week. Here’s the first.

#Bottega Veneta’s history / identity are linked close to the Veneto region in the northeast of Italy… the heart of its social initiatives. In 2011 the brand assisted in launching the Women’s Mountain Cooperatives – a charity that benefits a large number of women who are in unemployment in the Alto Astico and Posina mountain. They’ve helped build two artisan #leather-making workshops and each employ 30 people. 2012 saw the brand financed a three-month cause in bag design and product development, was gave students from IUAV university in Venice the opportunity to attend and three students from Japan who was affected by the tsunami. New courses kicks off in Jan 2015.

Makes you think as an individual, what can I do? What little thing can I do everyday to show social responsibilities. So as you go about your day, think socially and give something back.

It’s time to get ready for winter, and what better way to do it than to invest in a few key pieces for your new winter wardrobe. When deciding on what staple pieces you need this season, it is important to think about what particular looks suit you, and how to get the best value for your money by buying pieces that can be interchanged with each other to make a whole host of different outfits. High-quality online retailers such as Miss Williams have a huge variety of gorgeous clothes to choose from – the key is to have fun with your outfits and enjoy what you’re wearing.

So to make it a bit easier for you, we’ve compiled a list of some staple items that should be seen in every girl’s wardrobe this winter.

The Birkin History

Jane Mallory Birkin, OBE (born 14 December 1946) is an English actress and singer based in France.

She is perhaps best known for her relationship with Serge Gainsbourgin the 1970s and being the namesake of the popular Hermes Birkin bag.

225px-Hermes_Ostrich_Birkin_Bag

Hermès Ostrich Birkin Bag

It came about in 1981, Hermès  when the chief executive, at the time, Jean-Louis Dumas was seated next to Jane Birkin on a flight from Paris to London. Birkin placed her straw bag in the overhead compartment of her seat, but the contents fell to the floor, leaving her scrambling to collect the contents. She explained to Dumas how  difficult  it is to find a leather weekend bag she liked. In 1984, he created a black supple leather bag for her: the Birkin bag,based on a 1982 design. She used the bag for herself for quite some time until developing tendinitis, switching to other types at that point.

How amazing it would be to have something that timeless named after you or created for you.

I say this week go out there and be an inspiration and create!

How To Shop Petite

“Know, first, who you are; and then adorn yourself accordingly.” — Epictetus

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I wanted to share three clever fashion tips to add a few inches

to create a tall look (if you want)

IMG_1286

1. Go Full-length

Yes, petite ladies can wear floor-kissing skirts and dresses.

Makes us look taller!

go short

2. Go Short

If you’re petite —when it comes to skirts and dresses—you should either go floor length,

or super-short (try to calf-length and knee-lengths).

Mini-skirts creates the illusion of a longer leg.

flare jeans

3. Go Flare

Fitted jeans with a flare at the bottom create the illusion of longer legs. You want  the hem hitting top of your shoes (heels, of course!).

Top tip: keep the fit of the jean super-slim through the leg, and waistband hits your natural waist.

Barbie Lagerfeld

I know, none of us ever imagined that this would actually happened, but alas it has. Mattel have teamed with Karl Lagerfeld  and release last month this  barbie made in the great designers own image. On released day Net-a-Porter is said to have sold $200k worth of the dolls!

I wonder if he’s designed one in petite size 🙂

Keep It Tucked In…

A beautiful thing is not perfect —Anonymous

e2875adace0bd874255754dfea336f5a
Tailor your trousers
and skirts so they fit snugly on your natural waist or hip bones

Shirts tend to come untucked or billow up because the waistband on your skirts or trousers are too loose, which allows for a shirt to come untucked because a) there’s a large gap and/or b) because the waistband of your skirt or trousers is sliding up and down.

love

If that’s the case, get yourself a good tailor. Seriously, it’s one of the best things you can do for your appearance.  Your skirts will stay put if you tailor them to cinch at your natural waist and graduate out towards your hips; rectangular or tubed-shaped skirts will simply ride up and down.

heram

Trousers and jeans you’ll want to tailor at your natural waist (if they’re high-waisted) or your hips (if they are mid/low) — a belt will keep them extra snug.

Petite Confidence…

“Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself” – Oscar De La Renta

The first step to developing your own style is projecting confidence  – believe me I had to learn this and I am still learning! The kind that subtle tells the world that you have self respect, self love and dress for yourself. When you know who you are style just flows and please note: it does not come from being taller, prettier, fairer, darker, thinner or shorter.

fashion

A confident woman loves everything about herself. Love your flaws and all. Hold your head up high, in fact flaunt your flaws, don’t hide them away because it’s what makes you different and stand out.

newlbd

Remember… you’re a godsend, and that makes you a goddess , so start today and treat yourself suitably so. How, you ask?

Start adoring yourself the same way you’re in awe of the flowers, the sunset, the moon. All these were made by god and so are you, right?

beau

Pamper yourself, wear clothes that make you feel great, wear an amazing perfume. Do anything that makes you feel fabulous on the inside.

Give someone a compliment and

Shapes of Petite Women…

hourglass

The Hour Glass is equally balanced on top and bottom; that is, bust measurement and hip measurement are about the same; with  a defined waistline. It’s considered to be the ideal figure type.

triangle figure

The triangle-shaped figure have proportionally smaller busts and/or narrower shoulders and larger hips and/or thighs when compared to women who have hourglass figures. Also known as a pear-shaped figure, the triangle-shaped figure is the most common figure type for women. When dressing for a triangle-shaped figure  select clothes that draws attention to the bust, creates a defined waistline, and minimises hips and thighs.

 

intreverted triangle

The inverted triangle-shaped figure has proportionally smaller hips and/or thighs and larger bust and/or wider shoulders when compared to a woman who has an hourglass figure. The inverted triangle is not a common figure type; however, with the popularity of bust enhancement by plastic surgery, it’s becoming more common. When dressing for an inverted triangle-shaped figure means selecting clothes that minimises the bust and creates a defined waistline. Otherwise, you runs the risk of looking too top-heavy.

 

rectangle

The rectangle figure have relatively equal bust and hip measurements, just as a woman who has an hourglass shape does. However, a rectangle-shaped figure doesn’t have a defined waistline. There’s little difference in waist measurement when compared to bust and/or hip measurements, so the rectangle shape is more or less straight up and down. It’s sometimes called an apple when the waist measurement is larger than the bust and/or hip measurement. The challenge for women who have a rectangle shape is to create the illusion of a defined waistline, which will make them look more like they have an hourglass shape.

The Product photoshoot

20140327-154927

It was grilling day and Tom Leighton’s Studio. I tell you doing product shots is back-breaking work, knee wrenching work. Progress seems slow to start with but once you’re find the flow it starts to go quickly.

My job was to get all the wrinkles out of each and every item that were to be photographed. Never underestimate how much goes into selling products online. Je suis trés occupée.

How to dress: be prepared to ruffle a few feathers | Fashion | The Guardian.

Adding a ruffle to an outfit is like tying a ribbon around a box: it transforms your perception of what lies beneath. Effort has been invested into making this package appealing. To create a ruffle, you need to use more fabric than is strictly necessary, and that’s the whole point. A ruffle is anti-utilitarian, which is why it is popular on the red carpet, where women are essentially gift-wrapped.

Bonjour… It’s Friday Beautiful…

c600x792
Today I had to wake up extremely early to get into the office. Engineers… they start really early for some reason and don’t seem to get a lot done quickly.

In an attempt to perk up this early start, I’ve decided to put this ensemble of clothing together. I love the cotton denim skirt with this yellow sunshine tuxedo blouse. Makes me feel beautifully happy… all I need right now is a date with my beaux  this evening 🙂

Anyway, back to work, and I hope everyone had a super week and is looking forward to an amazing weekend. Remember to enjoy your family and friends whenever you have the opportunity.

Stay beautiful..
