The lovely guys at New Look recently got in touch asking me if I’d like to collaborate and put a post together about my fashion resolutions – which sounded like and excellent idea and also reminded me that I totally forgot to finish off my New Year’s Resolutions post – oops!
Anyway, this is now the perfect opportunity to tell you about one of my top resolutions, which is to be more AWESOME when it comes to the clothes I wear, and just how I look in general. I often have high hopes and good intentions when it comes to expanding my fashion horizons, but usually take the lazy girls option and end up in a cardigan and leggings.
I want to be more experimental in my makeup as well as outfits, being louder, brighter and definitely more fun! At the moment I just feel like I’m so busy with my multiple jobs, little boy, family life and looking after the house (or trying to) and everything else that comes along day to day that I just don’t have the time to experiment with looks. My intention is to definitely make time now though.
Ok so these are the things I really want to incorperate into my look this year –
- Bright and vibrant colours – well more of them, more patterns and more FUN.
- Sequins. You can never have enough sequins.
- Fun and interesting textures.
- Holographic and metallic finishes. Again more of them, I only have holo on shoes and bags at the moment but I need it on clothes too!
I’m currently most experimental when it comes to accessories, but that’s where it stops for me. Being plus size too, I often find it quite hard to find clothing that’s a bit different and crazy. I have though, recently discovered an AMAZING site – Isolated Heroes who create fantabulous clothing in sizes up to a UK 24 – how awesome is that! Their clothing is not cheap by anyones means, but everything is hand made with love at their studio in Scotland, so I think the prices are pretty reasonable really. I have just ordered myself a little something so I’ll be telling you all about it when it arrives! (The amazing ‘Believe’ sequin jacket is featured in the image above – this is so on my wish list!)
At this point I also wanted to include mention of some of my absolute favourite fashion and style bloggers. These are ladies I really look up to when it comes to style and creativity –
First is Laura from thatssoyestreday. Laura is absolutely lovely, and rocks the most fantastic outfits and rainbow coloured hair – I need her lips dress!
Next is Lima from fashionicide. Lima is my holo buddy, whenever anything shiny catches my eye I let her know! I love Lima’s experimental makeup skills and amazing sense of style 🙂
And lastly Hayley from fashionhayley. I haven’t actually spoke to Hayley before, but I often read her blog and I’m constantly in awe of her amazingly colourful and out there looks, and I love that she isn’t afraid to push boundaries when it comes to style.
I’ve definitely started on the road to being more adventurous, apart from my Isolated Heroes order I’ve also just purchases an amazing colourful new wig – which will be on the blog shortly. Hopefully this is the start of something new for me, so watch this space to see my new looks coming up soon!
I hope you enjoyed my post! I’d love to hear if you have any fashion resolutions? xxx
