Best Seller....


On entering a store with the mind set too ‘browse’….. The store assistant approaches… ‘can I help you ma’am’… ‘no thank you, I am just looking……. I say this whilst fingering a garment that just caught my eye……. She then says ‘that is a beautiful piece’…. What would follow would be one of the biggest mistake that store assistants make….. 9 times out of 10 they will say….. ‘its our best seller’.
Ok so maybe for some people this comment works….. for me?... its an instant turn off…. You have instantly taken away the attraction I had only moments ago…. and now?.... chance’s are I will not buy……. Saying ‘its our biggest seller’, ‘those have gone really well’, ‘that’s our most popular item’…. what I actually ‘hear’ is….’wear this and you will look like everybody else’…. I know things are in mass production… I know it’s not a couture item…. However regardless of that, one would like to feel…. Or at least I would like to feel that regardless of the cost…it is!... I don’t want you to point out any ‘sheep’ factor…. The ‘trend’ factor……. I actually feel like its more of a compliment when someone says ‘where did you find that piece???... its lovely!... other than ‘oh my mother, sister, auntie and best friend all have that jacket. Ok with that said…. There are some pieces that I purchase knowing it will be ‘popular’ ( Jumpsuit below) but I purchase it anyway because the ‘its sooo me’ volume was on high…… But then I put my stamp on it and I make it mine…. I mean that IS really what its all about right??..... I know this… however I still hate the whole ‘its our best seller’ thing… its annoying and off putting and I still don’t understand to this day why sales assistants say it….. surely I can't be the only one that has zero desire to look exactly like everybody else?

Shoulders....


I love the understated sexiness of bare shoulders……
The part of the body that speaks volume…….. Slouched and its perceived as negative…. Pulled back and you exude confidence… Forget the midriff….for me it ‘shouts’….its too loud… The shoulders show a perfect combination of girly and sexiness whilst still remaining chic…….bare just one or both… The whispering of fun but classy….. Off the shoulder has never really had a moment….. a time where its all its own…… maybe that’s what I like about it….. its not trendy at all…. It just ‘is’…….. off the shoulder LBD?..... for me……. It’s a match made in heaven

Aloha


Summer is finally here!!!.... goodbye to the spring flings and hello to a  full on love affair with sunshine………. bright days and long evenings… BBQ’s and outdoor hang outs….. sun kissed skin and floaty dresses…… beach vacations ….park life strolls and city walking  wanders……dancing and giggling way past our bed time….. those who are loved up become even closer and those who are single find warm romance….. the magic of the sun….x
