Fairly Odd Socks

I have heard it said that the most underrated fashion trend is the white t-shirt. Although in many ways the white t-shirt represents a simplistic approach to style which is rather uncommon on the catwalk, I believe the most underrated fashion trend is, shockingly, far simpler than that. You may disagree, but what could be simpler than a pair of odd socks?

We've all done it. Whether we've been in a rush and just "couldn't be asked"; were getting dressed in the dark and couldn't see; or decided that "it just didn't matter", we have all worn a pair of odd socks. Yes, this does not make it a fashion trend, but why not? The difference between our mishap and a fashion trend could be as simple as keeping the legs of those jeans rolled up. Don't apologise - own it and rock it! I will be trying this - and I'll let you know how it goes down.

Blending the Times

I do not know whether anyone has experienced this, but after my exams ended in June, I was diagnosed with a serious case of STYLE BLOCK. Yes. A month of non-stop exams had sucked me dry of all the creative blood I had once had pulsing through my veins. I looked at jeans, and I saw... jeans. I looked at a belt, and I saw... a belt. I was well and truly broken. BUT NO MORE! Turns out all I needed was a little retail therapy in the form of browsing Oxford Street for a day! I am cured. Finally.
So, my creative bones are healed and I can now introduce to you my style inspiration for the next year or so: a 90s baseline with 70s chords, and a 60s melody. You're probably confused. I will be trying to combine 3 iconic time periods in my dress sense. It will be a challenge, but I'm looking forward to experimenting with bell sleeves and flared jeans; tunics and Mary Janes; and Mom jeans and flannels!

It looks as though my flagship stores will be Zara, Bershka and Mango for these particular styles. Somehow, from what I saw today, they have managed to find the perfect equilibrium between the runway and the high street, the balance that I have been desperately striving for in my personal fashion sense.

Anyway, a picture paints a thousand words, so feast your eyes on some of my inspiration!

Versus: Rachel Green and Monica Geller

Besides Julia Roberts, the 90s had other style icons, particularly in TV. The hit comedy series 'Friends' for example, was the home to two characters with impeccable style in my opinion. So, lets explore why Rachel Green and Monica Geller have made it as style icons and you can tell me who's style you prefer!

Rachel Green 

Monica Geller 

Both girls 


So let me know who's style you prefer! I personally love aspects of the style of both girls!
I need your opinions - let me know in the comments below!

God bless!

25th December

Merry Christmas! Sorry for the lack of posts: exams have been taking up 100% of my time! Finally Christmas is here and I can relax! So, Merry Christmas guys! I hope your day has been filled with love, food and laughter and that you're enjoying yourselves, and that you have received all the presents you were expecting! Right now I'm exploring the keys of my new laptop (thanks Mum) and feeling all snuggly in my boots (love you Dad)!

Will be posting before the New Year!
God bless and Merry Christmas!

My newest obsession: suits.
Despite my lack of them, I really do love the way women look in suits! So, I thought I'd show you guys just a few of the suit styles I love and hope to get in the near future!
Yes, Julia Roberts is modelling most of these as she is definitely a style icon when it comes to suits!

1) The pinstripe

I think this is the most iconic kind of suit. It can be dressed up or down to suit the occasion and is certainly eye-catching!

2) Dad's Suit

Well, you wouldn't wear this to a job interview... This suit is definitely not for everyone. It's oversized and screams "I don't care!" loud for the whole world to hear, however I really do think there's some beauty to it.

3) The 90s Skirt Suit

I love this. It's a classy throwback that turns heads, while still highlighting stylish trimmings. The double-breasted blazer ans shoulder pads - I will certainly be searching for this in charity shops!

4) The 90s High Waisted Shorts

Sorry, I couldn't find a good picture - but this is EXACTLY it. The high waisted shorts and the eye-catching bright colour. This will definitely be in my Summer 2015 wardrobe.

5) The Typical 90s Suit

So I couldn't find the perfect example on a woman, but this is it. The 90s suit. It's classy, yet accesible to everyone; formal, yet still relaxed - everybody needs one of these.

You probably want to know my favourite...
Guys it's so hard! I honestly don't have a clue! I need help - tell me in the comments which are your favourites and why!

God bless,
Annoa xx
