I WANNA BE DOWN



I WAS ONCE CALLED A CHAMELEON. EXPERIMENTATION IS FUN, WHY STICK TO ONE LOOK WHEN YOU CAN PLAY AROUND WITH SO MANY?

STYLING THE 90'S DENIM WAISTCOAT 


INSPIRED BY BRANDY - I WANNA BE DOWN. (SUCH A TUNE, RIGHT?) 


THE MUSIC VIDEO SCREAMS 90'S FASHION & I'M SURE WE ALL REMEMBER THE DENIM WAISTCOAT THAT BRANDY STYLED BEAUTIFULLY IN THE VIDEO. 


I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A LOVER OF 90'S FASHION AS YOU CAN PROBABLY TELL FROM MY PREVIOUS LOOKS. ALTHOUGH I GO THROUGH SO MANY PHASES, IT'S A STYLE I WILL ALWAYS COME BACK TO. 


STYLING THIS WAISTCOAT WAS SUCH A FUN EXPERIENCE, AS FASHION TO ME IS ALL ABOUT EXPERIMENTATION. PLAY AROUND WITH DIFFERENT LOOKS AND SEE WHAT YOU CAN COME UP WITH. AN OUTFIT CAN SHOWCASE SO MANY DIFFERENT THINGS & FOR ME THAT'S WHY I ABSOLUTELY LOVE STYLING. 


I PAIRED THE WAISTCOAT WITH A PLAYFUL SKIRT, A 90'S INSPIRED TURTLE NECK & RETRO TRAINERS, WHICH I THINK ALL COMPLIMENTED THE DENIM PIECE SO PERFECTLY. I FELT LIKE A 5 YEAR OLD AGAIN IN THIS OUTFIT AND ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS RUN UP AND DOWN ALL DAY.


I ABSOLUTELY ADORE THE 'PROJECT BABE' DETAILING ON THE BACK OF THE JACKET. IT MAKES ME FEEL EMPOWERED WITH A SLIGHTLY FUNKY ATTITUDE. 


WHAT INSPIRES THE CREATION OF YOUR OUTFITS? I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW. 


DO YOU CONNECT MOVING IMAGES WITH YOUR CREATIONS LIKE ME, OR ARE YOU INFLUENCED BY OTHER ELEMENTS?

  1. Social media is definitely a big inspiration when creating outfits. Instagram and Pinterest to be specific. It's just so awesome when I see people styling stuff in ways I never thought would work. It inspires me to push the boat out and attempt to style outfits in similar ways. Xx

  3. Beautifully styled #OOTD! Your white Adidas skirt and Reebok trainers, black Asos turtleneck jumper, hosiery, and blue denim vintage Rokit waistcoat all look fabulous together! My own OOTDs are inspired by styling attributes I've come to love, and the colours, fabrics and style features of the outfit pieces available.
