That 70s chic

Personal style is such that it is a reflection of the individual’s taste, experiences, and perhaps even aspirations. It is a form of self expression. Adventurous, elegant, sprinkled with a high dosage of quirkiness, I like to think of my style as an expression of the modern woman with an edge- classy but not afraid to be quirky either. She stands out from the crowd, for the right reasons.I love that fashion can transcends eras and cultures. Add personal style and the options are limitless.Today’s look is inspired by the 70s era. The double plaid look was one well played (see what I did there!😂) with the clever juxtaposition of colors.Think Farrah Fawcett. Think plaids. Think wide legs. Think vibrant colorsI bought each of these items separately not knowing what I would pair with what. As soon as I got the jumper, I thought of the plaid pants and thus; like a puzzle, piece after piece, it all came together. That for me, is the most exciting and possibly fulfilling part of creating a look. Starting with a blank canvas and creating something you are proud of, can relate to, and and hopefully, one that others can connect with. Hope you like the look.

Happy new month. December, be good to us all.

Love,

The Emerald lass.xox

The Emerald Lass

You don’t need to know me too well to know that I’m a bit of a girly girl. That means I’m more likely to be found in a frilly dress or tulle skirt than anything else.

I also wouldn’t be The Emerald lass if I wasn’t all about my greens. No, not the ones on my dinner plate.😬 I love almost every shade of green there is out there but Emerald remains my fave. Such a rich and vibrant shade, what a gem!

Summer may be packing up its bags but that’s not about to stop me from going for gold, (well, green) in this Topshop wrap dress. I love the lady-like appeal of dresses. In a wrap dress, you can’t be anything short of a lady. I’m not usually one to favor low necklines so this was a little out of my comfort zone. But I love that it’s low but not revealing and I hope I still managed to pull off a classy, demure look whilst adding a bit of sass.If you’re worried about being weather appropriate, throw on a pair of tights or fishnets, add a pretty cardigan or a blazer and Bob’s your uncle!😀 To compliment the dress, I paired it with my pink ASOS pumps and added my green fur box bag from Mango.

That 70’s show: Valentine’s Ed

IMG_3073Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence. – The Little Prince Continue reading That 70’s show: Valentine’s Ed
