Your Passport to Style

on Thursday, 27 September 2012. Posted in Shopping, Fashion

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting the Style-Passport offices in London and meeting the team behind the burgeoning online boutique. Style-Passport (SP) offer a destination site aimed at making shopping for your getaways and holidays effortless - fashion conscious travel junkies take note! You can shop by destination; beach, city, spa etc… or simply browse by product type and brand. And don’t be put off visiting just because you might not be planning your next safari or mountaineering expedition. There truly is something for everybody, including those that prefer a staycation over a vacation.

Bicester Village

Bicester Opening Times

‘Luxury Outlet Village’ three little words that I love to hear but that leave my husband rushing to hide the credit card. Last week I was lucky enough to visit the matriarch of all outlets, Bicester Village in Oxfordshire. I’d spent the past nine months (since we moved to the South) eager to visit, so to say I was excited would be a vast understatement.

House of Fraser Style Challenge

House of Fraser Dress Up Jacket Necklace Dress Tights Bag Sunglasses Shoes

Never one to do anything by halves, when I saw a blog post from House of Fraser asking bloggers to pull together a key look for next season, I sensed a challenge afoot. Rather than simply listing the items, I saw an opportunity to be a little bit more creative.

After some quick brainstorming I decided to create a paper doll that I could style with my favourite items from House of Fraser. I have fond memories of paper dolls as my first foray into the world of fashion. Long before I was sewing clothes for Barbie and Sindy, I was carefully cutting out outfits to style my flimsy friends.

If I were asked to describe my wardrobe in terms of a palette; I think the word ‘neutral’ would be used the most. Whilst I like a bold print as much as the next blogger, there is no doubt that neutral shades appeal to me the most. I find that as I get older I’m more interested in buying clothes that complement the other items in my wardrobe. Gone are the hazy days of impromptu shopping trips and spur of the moment purchases. Now each purchase is a carefully considered investment, which I justify with the question "what do I own that I could wear it with?". Neutral shades are easy to pair for obvious reasons and being someone who favours bold  accessories, I enjoy being able to accessorise an outfit without ending up looking like a wannabe Lady Gaga.

The Wedding Phase

Phase Eight - Arabella Twist Front Maxi Dress

Phase Eight and weddings outfits… two things that go together like Carrie and Big, for me at least. This year I’m attending five weddings and for three out of the five, I will be wearing/have worn a Phase Eight dress.

Up until 2010, Phase Eight was a shop I’d never ventured into. This all changed when I went shopping with my Mum for her ‘mother-of-the-bride’ outfit for my wedding. She chose a dress, jacket, fascinator, jewellery… in fact, her entire outfit down to her shoes came from Phase Eight. Having spent well over an hour ambling around the Bath store selecting items for my Mum to try on, the occasional distraction was almost inevitable. While waiting outside the changing rooms I couldn’t help but pick out a beautiful chiffon floral print dress to try on. Ten minutes later, I’d made my first ever purchase.
