What is luxurious to you in the fashion stakes? Is it a cute designer find? Do you covet GucciBalenciagaPrada? Do you love the thrill of thrifting; scoping that one-off piece made in the 80’s and still in perfect condition. Perusing artisanal designer markets? Online shopping? The list of options for building our wardrobe is endless and that is why it is so important to adopt personal style! Don’t chase those trends or worse, be a blind victim to a system in absolute upheaval.

Think about it – what is it about that item you crave; the one you just have to have? Is it glamorous inspiring fabrics, a celebrity endorsement, architectural style silhouettes, shiny embellishments? Do you know what looks good on you? Do you seek honest feedback? Sorry for all the questions but it’s super important to know what you j’adore! And by incorporating these elements into your everyday wardrobe, you will feel like a star.

Because everyday is a fucking party worth celebrating. And you have to truly believe that! xx

The Colour of Emotion

Sunday Blues Nail Varnish

Got me some Sunday Blues (@mad_fash Insta)

What is your favourite colour? It probably says a lot about you! From your personality and preferences to the way you interact and communicate with others, and of course, to the way you dress.

Colour is such a powerful tool when it comes to self-expression and style, and you don’t really need me to tell you that! The way you present yourself can go a long way in projecting the messages you want to send. We associate red with passion or anger, yellow with hope/cheer, and blue with serenity for example. Shades definitely make a difference and you can have too much of a good thing, so keep it subtle. But see the emotional connections? Super-charge your wardrobe and put a little mind behind your style. Here’s a super-quick guide to a colourfully new you:

Green: Refreshing

Yellow: Cheery

Purple: Royal & stately

White: Invigorating, spacious

Blue: Tranquil & calming

Red: Passionate & bold

Black: Sophisticated, dramatic

Grey: Neutral & refined

Beige: Delicate, luxurious

Take it with a grain of salt – many factors come into play when it comes to successful & effective communication: ie. the biggies body language and tone of voice – but have fun & experiment with the colours you may not normally consider. See what happens! Go bold for your next job interview or date, or try some calming vibes at work.
