My Trip to London

 

I got this black and gold top from Joyce Leslie for $4.00 and I really like the boxy fit and geometric pattern on it. For my other outfit the top underneath my jacket is from H&M and it was $7.00 and the pants I was wearing were $9.99 from H&M. I also got this army green jacket from Tesco. I heard Tesco was sort of like Target and I loved this lightweight jacket that I found on sale.

Below are some photos of some must see sights from London, such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and the London Eye. Also, we went to the Greencoat Boy in London and the food was amazing there.

 

I also included some photos of Brighton. It was very windy and it was definitely reminded me of Atlantic City. I loved the Brighton Pier too and was surprised by how much there was to do. The dress I wore in the left corner was $12.99 from Old Navy and it was a pleated long sleeved dress with a simple skinny belt from Forever 21.

Overall, it was a great trip and I loved experiencing different parts of London. I’ll do a separate post about Primark and Oxford Street because I had a lot of fun shopping and it’s worth another post.

Hope you enjoyed my sharing of my holiday. Cheers 🙂

Project Runway Review: Episode 3

Last night’s episode was the group challenge where designers took inspiration from countries and a cruise. And again, I wasn’t on the same page as the judges. Oh, and I miss David, and wish he was still on the show. 😦

blake and kelly greek isles

Blake and Kelly: This was by far my favorite, and I honestly thought this should’ve won. How were they safe? This screams Greece to me with the white and blue tones. I also like how the fabric peeked at the sides, and when the model turned around, the print was more prominent. I think the judges are crazy for putting this as a safe look, when it was the most chic to me.

swapnil and laurie india

Swapnil and Laurie: These two made a great team with Swapnil focusing on the sari, and Laurie making it modern and fresh. The crop top and high-waisted pant look was great on its own, but I also loved the mix of patterns. If Blake and Kelly couldn’t win, I would’ve had Swapnil and Laurie for the win.

Ashley and candice venice

Candice and Ashley: I’m really surprised that this look won. To me, the main problem is that this doesn’t say Venice to me. I like the mix of the floral print and the stripes, but the pants threw me off. They were way too short and I wasn’t crazy about the proportions. It’s a strong look, but I think it needs to be edited a little bit.

jake and lindsey hong kong

Lindsey and Jake: These two made me uncomfortable with how poorly they worked together. On one hand, Lindsey sometimes undermines Jake, especially with Tim’s critique ( I like you Jake, but I would sooner die) . On the other hand, Jake was making Lindsey do everything. They were in the top. He didn’t have to be so passive aggressive on the runway. Anyway, I liked the red dress, but I wasn’t crazy about the green vest.

amanda and gabby

Amanda and Gabrielle: This wasn’t that great, but it wasn’t terrible. The proportions are off, and this doesn’t read South of France to me at all. I did like the lining of the top though.

Joseph and merline st.peterburg

Joseph and Merline: If I were Merline, I would’ve pulled a Jake and said this was all Joe’s look. He completely shut her down from expressing her point of view, which is much more fun and fresh than Joe’s aesthetic. The little bib part was made of a nice fabric, but like I said, it looked like a weird bib. This was too old, and I would’ve liked to see Merline put some of her styling into this. She’s been on the top, while Joe made that really bad paper skirt last week. I’m not sure why he was so cocky in this episode.

hanmiao and edmond caribbean

Edmond and Hanmiao: Wow, this was so bad. I laughed when Gabrielle said it was good, and Hanmiao said “Really?” I can’t believe they used their differences in design aesthetics as an excuse. They could’ve split up the look. She could’ve made a structured crop top, and Edmond could’ve made a proper flowy skirt, and it would’ve worked for the challenge. I felt so bad for Edmond because Hanmiao couldn’t voice any of her opinions, and then she went crazy and sewed the model into the bathing suit.

Summer Finds Based on Your Style

I decided to do a summer style guide because there are so many different styles worn in the summer. From boho prints to sheer skirts, there are several pieces people should get based on their style.

If your style is…… Chic

Sheer Pantsuit: It’s flowy, simple and makes a bold statement. For a chic, soft look, wear with a long necklace, heels or flats.

If your style is…..Edgy

Distressed and Studded Shorts: Both trends are edgy and perfect on a pair of cutoffs. It would pair well with graphic tees and a moto jacket.

If your style is…..Preppy

Printed Collared Shirt: This shirt is girly and perfect for the summer weather. It would look extra preppy with high-waisted shorts, a statement necklace around the collar, or oxfords. Add a blazer for chilly weather.

If your style is……Boho

Tribal Pants: Boho style is perfect for the summer. These pants are light and fun, and pair well with loose tanks.

If your style is…..Minimalistic

Boxy Co-ords: Co-ords are also perfect for the summer. For a minimalist look, wear a solid, boxy mod style.

If your style is……Artsy

Patterned Midi Skirts: These midi skirts are in style now, and for an artsy feel, mix patterns and play with colors. I also like the brush stroke pattern.

If your style is….Sporty

Color Blocked Tops: Color blocking is perfect for those who want to stick with sporty styles.

If your style is….Glamorous

Embellished Crop Tops: Jeweled and embellished crop tops are perfect for a glamorous feel. It’s fun and stands out.

If your style is…..Romantic

Wrap Dress: A Grecian wrap dress is cute for a romantic outfit. Wear in soft colors like rose, white, cream and mint green.

If your style is……Flirty

Bright Maxi Skirts: Bright colors are great for maxi skirts. I love the sheer ones that have a lot of movement when you walk. It’ll certainly get attention.

If your style is…..Country

Fringe tops: Fringe in very in fashion, and I think it is worn in many different styles. However, if someone has a country feel, they should try a fringe top, bag or shoe.

This is just my opinion, and I hope you liked it!
