Think outside the box

“Style is not something purchased, it is what you create through items purchased” quote by outofbarbarasbox

This Victorian collared neck ballooned sleeved top is exactly one that ticks the important shopping box. Endless styling versatility.

I switch up the looks to show how easy it is to get multiple wears out of one piece of clothing whilst earning major style points.

1st look: Uptown girl about town






Second look: Corporate chic with a twist


Third look: Girl next door with a passion for fashion

This look was photographed in the autumn. Items you buy should be easily adapted inbetween seasons.

My lovely blogger friend Samurai Hijabi saw a preview of this look that I posted on my Instagram and got in touch to do a collaboration. It’s almost as though we pre planned the bow scarf top combo which was a coincidence. You could say great fashion minds think alike. Check out more of her style here

Fashion for me must always contain a mix of individualism, character and an element of fun... My blog is the platform at which I can engage in two of my favorite things I.e. writing and fashion
