September is turning out to be the best month yet!! It’s always been my favourite month of the year. I love the late summer sun. The lighting is always so pretty too. Fresh crisp days.Taking full advantage of the great weather and wearing a little mini skirt and heels. The jacket I had back 10 years ago as a gift. I still love it… it’s a timeless piece that I pull out of the wardrobe and never fails to look smart.Florals with block colours always work well. Mix and match with denims, prints and more.. another great wardrobe staple. (check out the pieces I’ve put together below) I’ve always been a lover of the deeper shades of red/burgundy. Such a great colour for fall.
I’m a true believer at love at first sight.well when it comes to clothes that is.This floral blouse has been on my wish list for a while now. I love the dark contrast and sheer fabric. It reminds me of something from a Gucci collection. Only this is high street. Perfect!! It fits great with neutrals and dark tones.It adds a little 70′s vibe to an outfit. Which is good for now with all the amazing 70′s style looks being posted around.The weather is amazing today here in Wales. So I chose the shorter option. It’s great to see blue skies and feel the warmth of the sun. Not being able to get away this year has meant little sunshine for me. So I’m more then happy to be able to wear something as summery in september. So have a great weekend and I’ll see you next week. Same place possibly a different time but definitely here www.dressmeperfect.com !!! xx Dawn
Head to toe in neutrals on my second day of London Fashion week. With cream sweater dress andbeige thigh high boots. I was making the most of the sunshine, especially after being soaked thru on the friday. It was a stunning morning and I got to spend it around parliament square for the Markus Lupfer presentation. (Which I’ll post up in a few days time). It was set in the most beautiful room which hoasted a dreamy terrace which over looked the thames.(see my instagram for pics) Sun blazing I could of stayed there the whole day. Definitely a more relaxed morning to my previous day which in strake contrast was a complete nightmare. It’s been on one those months. If you’ve ever seen the film the really horrible terribly bad day then that’s exactly what my day was like. So I also got have coffee at the Corinthea hotel (wow again). This hotel is so beautiful. A huge twinkling chandelier dominates the lobby with an arched open ceiling letting streams of light through. London has such magnificent buildings and surrounds. It’s truly one of the most amazing architectural cities in the world. When the sun is shining it’s even better.Have a great week. And keep your eyes out for a few more London outfits and show pics.
Loving this seasons over knee boots. Added with a military style jacket and you have super sleek look. I do also love this head to toe black. As you have probably noticed lately.This winter is seeing a great season for fashions. I’ve seen so many amazing pieces and the high street is the best it’s been in ages. There’s not been one shop I’ve not noticed something I’ve wanted. It’s so close to the designer collections and so up on the trends that it’s made shopping so much easier. Putting outfits togther can seem daunting but this seasons pieces are so versatile and wearable it’s been made easier to look good.
The highly anticipated collaboration between shoe giant Deichmann and world famous blogger Hanneli Mustapartax is finally here. Launched only days ago this super chic and very cool capsule collection is sure to be a success. With the collection comprising of 10 styles there’s something for everyone. I went with something a little different to my usual. But I’m glad I stepped out the box (excuse the pun) and went with these double zipped ankle biker boots. I’m not usually one to go too heavy with my footwear, but I absolutely love the design and the finish is perfection. With clean lines and a beautifully proportioned profile the boot has a real luxurious feel to it.They compliment an outfit and would look great for both day and night. Skirts, jeans and shorts are a perfect pairing for such a piece. I loved the way they looked when I put them on. They gave my leg a great shape and they looked fab with my jeans. Which is very important as I wear jeans most days. They fitted into my style instantly. In fact they brought something different to my everyday look. They came to my ankle in just the right place as to not cut my leg down and make it look shorter, which is what can sometime happen with an ankle boot. . I always like versatility in a pair of shoes and these have that. Comfort is also an important factor especially if your in them all day. Sometimes I find boots a little too heavy, especially if your out and about walking a lot. These have ticked all the boxes for me. The height of the heel, the comfort, the style, fabric and with padding at the top of the boot it makes my foot feel secure and comfortable for walking. Not only looking good but comfortable too. Without doubt these are going to be part of my capsule winter wardrobe and I’m sure you will see me wearing them on here in the coming months. You can view the full collection by Hanneli Mustaparta for Deichman here. Amazingly they start from £14.99. Take a peek and I’d highly recommend trying something a little different to your usual. xx Dawn
Not usually a fan if the turtle neck until this season.It’s funny how tastes change or is it that these key pieces are made better with the use of nicer fabrics, cuts and designs.It’s great to find something you feel good in and comfortable. Having since found my new love for the turtle neck, I’ve added several more pieces to my wardrobe for winter in similar design. The turtle neck dress being one.. blog post to come soon. It’s London fashion week this week so I’m preparing for a few shows. You can see my outfits and coverage over histogram here… and I’ll be posting lots of pics on the blog too.Have a great week. xx Dawn
“True style never compromises. With the Huawei Watch, classic Swiss design meets smart technology to create an enduring timepiece. A superior full circle display offers a window onto the world. A wearable to be worn.”
I was recently invited to join Huawei for the launch of their smart watch in Berlin. Sadly I missed the trip due to being delayed and missed the flight! Oh no! I was so disappointed not to of made it, especially with such a wonderful team involved with the launch. I still really wanted to write a post on this amazing new high tech fashionable piece. As you can see the whole campaign is fronted by world models Karlie Kloss and Sean O’Pry. Even more remarkable the whole campaign was shot by the one and only Mario Testino. With a real mix of fashion and technology, the emergence of such a piece is vital. Having something that does a job is great, but having a something that also looks beautiful is even better.
ONE WATCH, ENDLESS STYLES
“The right watch becomes part of your signature style. The Huawei Watch lets you build a bespoke timepiece that expresses your individual look. Choose from a range of premium casings and fine leather or stainless steel straps. Once you have your perfect watch, you can dress it for every occasion with a variety of bespoke watch faces to choose from.”
I guess you could say they’re taking things seriously at Huawei. Wanting to give the consumer a little bit more then a smart watch. Not only a cool device that can link to your iOS device but one that can give you a host of personal data on a day to day basis and still maintain a fashionable presence. Ideal for night’s out, business meetings and even a fashion shoot.
“The Huawei Watch makes keeping active and reaching your goals effortless. It goes wherever you go, offering a smart perspective on your fitness. A high-accuracy motion sensor keeps track of your activity and knows when you’re walking, running or climbing.”
I was shocked it could do so much. It doesn’t look like the clumsy sports watch / heart rate monitor of years ago. Having had so many of these due to my sport I was always aware of changing my watch after training. Especially if I were going out for dinner or meeting friends, I didn’t want an ugly watch on my wrist. This time piece is definitely not that. In fact you don’t need to worry as this timepiece has had so much thought put into it you wouldn’t want to be without it. No matter what your environment.
“The Huawei Watch is designed to be part of your look, and part of your life. It pairs with any Android phone and it’s also one of the first watches powered by Android Wear™ to work with iPhone”
