With Black Friday looming and deals (fake or real) being shown at us (I believe I had 50 new emails today all about black Friday)
Sustainability has become something we need to look at more and more as the world needs our help.
Since the rise of social media, bloggers telling you to buy cheap product constantly and emails for any promotion possible from every brand you can think of. Social media adverts popping up with new in pieces that you have never seen before! It’s all around us all the time!
I have my older sister to thank for this article as she is the one who has always tried to tell me we need to be better to the environment and now her lessons are really sinking in!
I would love to know how you feel about this matter, I have a few tips for you to help you create a better wardrobe for the planet and for your bank balance.
If you have anymore information or want to chat anymore please get in touch and #boycotblackfriday
I am finding dresses really easy to wear at the moment, whether it's with a big jumper over the top and thermal leggings underneath or on milder days, a fine roll neck underneath and tights and boots. It really helps to lift your wardrobe and they are great to have throughout winter and summer making your working wardrobe more vesitile.
Midi dresses or minis are better for when it's wet. Maxi dresses are great when it's dry!
Here are a few I have picked out recently in Iris Fashion near my home town. I hope you like.
This is not an add, just pieces I love.
The above is a Stine Goya dress
The above is an Iris own brand piece 'By Iris' label. This dress is a beautiful shape if you are small chested and they are also bringing it out in a Green velvet in the next few weeks.
The price label is great and the floral print is beautiful.
By Iris Shae dress £165
The Ba&sh midi dress with a black suede knee high boot is to die for. They also do it in another colour way but this has got to be my favourite for me! This dress is so wearable throughout the seasons and can be worn extremely casually or very dressed up.
They are my top picks for now, I wanted to just give you a little taste of what I have been looking at, I will come up with some more posts for you soon, all about Christmas dressing!

Autumn Winter 19 is throwing us so many options! And the high street stores are really performing to get the catwalk looks to you.
We have neutrals and earthy tones but also bright colours (a lot of reds and pinks), suiting, wide leg, cords are back for another season. Leather is a big one for AW, whether it be real or faux, you will find one to best suit you.
I have gone through some key styles and found options in stores. I hope you enjoy this blog, I do love a new season!
I am currently creating a capsule for a client so it gave me the inspiration to blog, I have had summer blues since being back in the UK, however I am back to it.
Any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
I love leather! I think it works as the perfect transitional fabric, it edges up a mohair soft coloured knit, looks fab with all colours and is a brilliant contrast. For those who have a straighter bone structure (if your bones point out rather than glide) a patent or stiffer leather is better, anyone with a curvy bone structure (softer curves in the bones) the softer leathers and suedes are for you.
From Heritage check to Chanel twee, embellished coats are here to stay this season. Over sized with padded shoulders to more feminine silhouettes.
Organza is a stiffer silk, however high street brands have managed to master it with a polyester. There are the most beautiful feminine styles out there on the high street and designer. The perfect touch to dress up your denim and leather. Chiffon and Tulle are fabrics that give the same look.
Pink and Red
Love it or hate it, pinks and reds are back this season as a combination.
It's all about neutrals this season, I have only done a small selections as there are hundreds of pieces.
Sequins and sparkles for AW19 continuing from Summer, bright and dark sparkles!
If you want to get an Ultra special piece go to Olivia Rubin London, I cannot get pictures unfortunately but check out the website! www.oliviarubinlondon.co.uk

Green is a love it or hate it colour for so many people but the real trick is finding your shade. There is so much green in stores and coming in for high summer that you may not be able to get away from it.
Here are a few of my picks of greens in stores now.
If you want to find your shade, get in touch for a shopping trip with colour matches for the season
Below are some mint green shades carried at Olivia Rubin and Rixo. Both brands have gone for print on their garments, these are not as strong as the Ganni but have as much affect. The mint Olivia Rubin pieces are quite icy cool, with the zebra stipe running through, high contrast pieces with maximum impact. The Rixo garments are soft and feminine some are cooler and some are warm giving their customers a shade to suit. Low contrast pieces mixed with white.
Whistles, self portrait, &Other Stories are giving us some green too. See below for some of my top picks.
Ascot, Henley, wedding ready yourself in these shades. They really do have an impact and look beautiful on when you find the right one.

Important things to do to maximise your wardrobe
-Go through it and clear out all pieces that are no longer important to it! If you haven't worn something for years, you don't really like it or it doesn't fit with what you have any longer than remove it from your everyday pieces.
-Create a capsule collection
-Make sure the pieces in your capsule work with each other so you can get the best outfits
-Capsules can be colourful, neutral, patterned...etc. These garments are the ones you want to be able to choose from on a daily basis without having the think too hard, they fit your lifestyle and make you feel great!
-Use this capsule wardrobe when buying new clothes. Make a mental or captured picture of it so when buying new pieces you know they will work with what you have already. This will save your bank balance and in the long run, the world we live in.
- When shopping, take a picture of yourself in an outfit. Go away and think about it, if you change your mind, Great! If you can't stop thinking about it, go and get it!
