I was feeling very Mary Jane girls yesterday and matched my court shoes with polka dot tights & socks!

I really love girls groups from the 80s!! Their style and dress up is right up my ally… anything that’s puffy from skirts to tops with a punk feel and pink or leather matched with stilettos is a win win for me.20120306-161628.jpg

I’ll post more snaps…

But first introducing celebs wearing the same heels & sock trend as I20120306-192754.jpg20120306-192759.jpg20120306-192805.jpg20120306-192813.jpg20120306-192818.jpg20120306-192832.jpg20120306-192848.jpg20120306-192858.jpg
What I love about this look is how Girly & Feminine it makes you look!
No mistaking you for a girl who just wears kicks & sweaters…

Aldo has to be another on of my favourite brands. Their collections are always really glamourous and emphasise the female figure!
I love looking sexy and heels really have that effect over trainers/kicks any day.

I really love wearing polka dots, from shirts, skirts to dresses!
This SS12 the dots are out again…

I love wearing a full denim outfit and Rihanna made a great choice to pair cut offs with thigh high boots! Exactly what I would have done.
I like The simplicity of Nicole Richie’s cut off denim jacket.
The simpler the better in my mind.

Studded denim in a nutshell…

The pink tie dye is a great look! I thought about customising boots but summer is so hot and humid in Japan I just don’t know how people do it!

Whatever the season adding studs to any piece of clothing with make your own and a one off piece, what’s greater than that?
Give it a try…

keep seeking that individual STYLE!

In my last post “Think Mint” I stumbled across a wonder street snap of women of my favourite young fashion editors

20120229-155938.jpg

Julia Sarr Jamois
She is a Fashion Editor for Wonderland Magazine.
She’s only 23!! I really envy her as she has my dream job..

Again her style is unprecedented! JSJ used to be a model but wanted to do something more creative so after her internship at i-D magazine she became an editor at Wonderland Magazine! And now everyone is writing about her style including me.
I really do see similarities in our approach to our wardrobes, both of our mothers have huge vintage collection which we borrow from time to time, JSJ mother used to have a market stall and she usually wears her mothers old jeans.
We both love to match sunglasses with all our outfit. I love her oversized Prada frames. And how she mixes prints with vivid colours like no other.

Keep being an individual & Stay Stylish

Yesterday was very eventful, and to match I decided to wear a dress which I rarely do these days.20120227-211126.jpg20120227-211146.jpg20120227-211211.jpg20120227-211224.jpg
matched with thigh high Topshop boots that go with everything and are just so comfortable, with my trusted biker and polka dot head band!

This spring another staple colour will be mint! Ever since I bought a mint blazer last year I’ve been really waiting for spring to colour block pastels.

I love this fur mint coat to match her natural Afro, it’s fab!

Now for the celebs who have also chosen to wear mint.20120227-212518.jpg20120227-212530.jpg20120227-212541.jpg20120227-212600.jpg20120227-213611.jpg20120227-213623.jpg20120227-213636.jpg20120227-213700.jpg20120227-213711.jpg
I wonder who else will be wearing mint now!

keep minty fresh & stay Stylish

So the other day I decided to go au natural and what goes best with natural Afro Caribbean hair?
Head wear!
Be it wraps, bandanas, turbans, headbands or bows they all look great!

Not having to straighten my hair and add extensions can be a blessing in disguise.
As I’ve found I have great scarves lurking in my drawers, so I managed to pull some out. First up of course my favourite leopard print in a 70s style Bun!

20120227-001459.jpg20120227-001554.jpg20120227-001608.jpg20120227-001629.jpg
Paired with a mint contrast vintage sweater, biker jacket, Zara black pleated skirt and gold cuff with Chanel earrings.

More Leopard inspiration…

Last year FENDI also created some rather fab sunnies! I like the purple tinted lense.

My Pick would be the powder pink Dolce & Gabbana

I tried to be different and just have my bangs blond, but as usual I got tired and so it all natural for the time being.
Natural is always best!
