Get The Look – Emma Stone!

Welcome back sista.

Well, I don’t know about you, but my Twitter/Instagram/Facebook was FULL of last nights Met Ball fashionistas, and the best dressed (by a long shot) was the beautiful Emma Stone for me.

Just gorgeous!

If you haven’t seen the masterpiece of an outfit, here ya go.

Again, just gorgeous!

She got it all right, down to the make up. Just perfection in my eyes. Not too much make up, not too much accessories, just perfect! I have seen some nasty comments about Emma’s choice in outfit, saying it was too casual for the Met Ball, but in my opinion, it is flawless and if Emma wants to wear it to the Met Ball, Emma can wear it!

And you know what the best part about all of this is?

I have found an almost exact (minus the designer label price) look for us ladies at home looking to replicate this beautiful outfit!

Just a word of warning here, almost the whole outfit is from boohoo.com, I’m not like affiliated with them or anything (gosh I wish) I just really really like their stuff, and they have a HUGE selection and in almost every colour, so I couldn’t help myself!

*Quick disclaimer: I do not condone copying at all, I think everyone should be unique and put their own twist on things. This look is for people who are inspired and would like to re create the outfit for themselves!*

The skirt

I decided to start with the best piece. That gorgeous gorgeous skirt. The original was by Thakoon, and was most likely $1000 and up! I found this lovely dupe by boohoo.com for only €15!!

Say whaaaat?

For an alternative, if side slits and maxi length really isn’t your thing, then I suggest a midi skirt. 50’s style, grease inspired swing skirts are a thing this summer, and again, good ol boohoo.com do a great one!

The crop top.

Emma’s crop top is oh-so casual, high necked and super flattering! I think I say this in every single one of my posts, but I cannot stress how flattering high neck tops are on smaller chested ladies!

No really.

If you are a small chested lady (like myself) then try a high neck next time you are shopping. It makes all the difference!

This pretty dupe is from boohoo.com (surprise,surprise) and for only €6, I mean, why not!

As an alternative, if your not really feeling the original, then go for something a little different, but still falls in the same crop top family. I found a stunning little number on, (go on have a guess) boohoo.com. It is different yet still so pretty and chic!

The clutch.

I love that Emma decided to play with metallics in the shoes and clutch. The silver really bounces off the pink and brings out the colours beautifully! The clutch is quite basic and oddly enough, very hard to find! So I have settled on a cute little one I came across in Zara the other day, which I think is just fab!

This one is a little on the pricier side. But, I saw it in store and it is amazing quality and comes with a strap to convert into a shoulder bag! Really worth the money if you are going to wear it a lot!

Zara

€49.95

As for an alternative, I really couldn’t just settle on one. Almost any clutch would do, the box style clutches are of course all in at the moment, but any style would look just as nice!

The shoes.

Emma’s heels are a basic silver sandal. Pretty much in every shop now, but again, boohoo.com do a nice pair for a pretty decent price!

met 6

boohoo.com

€28.00

Again, like the clutch, there are so many different types of alternatives here. Any strappy sandal works or even flat sandals, whatever makes you happy honey, you work it!

Alternative colours.

So, I think a major part of what makes Emma’s outfit so great, is her colouring. Pink is gorgeous on her light skin tone and auburn hair, and obviously we are not all made that way, so here are some colour schemes to match other skin tones and hair colours.

Black & White : a classic for all types

Light & Dark Blue : stunning on blondes and light skins

Light & Dark Greens : gorgeous on brunettes and olive skins

Yellow & Orange/Coral : beautiful on darker skin tones and black hair

Green & Blue : colour block colours great on blondes and lighter tones

Red & Pink : fab for darker tones and dark hair

I hope I have helped! If you find this outfit as gorgeous as I do, please let me know in the comments below!

My Top 10 Spring/Summer Mani Pedi Combo’s!

Well hello there.

I just LOVE nail polish. I have a slight addiction.

But that’s OK right? At least I admitted it.

I love playing around with colour combo’s for my mani pedis, and I never repeat the same combo twice! Why bother when there are so many pretty colours to choose from?

So without further due, here are my favorite combo’s for Spring/Summer.

Beware: Drooling from the mouth may occur after seeing such beautiful colours!

10. The party goer

mani 2

Everyone loves a good glitter polish and what better way to start off the summer night party then by arriving with brighter toes than the disco ball over your head!

9. The date night

mani 3

Pink to make the boys wink, and purple because it looks good, OK?

8. The beach day

mani 1

Nothing beats a mint and white to show off that glistening tan you just got!

7. The ‘Im feeling pretty’ day

mani 4

This is my favorite combo of the season! Gorgeous, girly and dainty, what more do you want?

6. The shopping date

mani 5

The lighter the colour, the heavier the wallet. Well, I like to think so anyway.

5. The tan

mani 6

Maybe your not getting that tan as you quite hoped for? Never fear pale lady, these bright colours will help bring out any tan!

4. The adventure

mani 7

The only sight seeing you’l be doing is down at your nails because you cant take your eyes off those adorable colours!

3. The pool day

mani 8

The only thing brighter than your mani pedi will be the sun, and even at that you will be giving it a good run for it’s money!

 

2. The drama queen

mani 9

Who wears gold on their toes anyway?

A drama queen, that’s who.

1. The ‘I just wanna have fun’ day

mani 10

Don’t take glitter too seriously, especially when you just want to have fun!

Well that is all I have for now! I hope you got some inspiration from this and please come join me on facebook, twitter and instagram, we can have so much fun!

My Top 5 Spring/Summer Trends 2014

Hi.

So instead of having a long welcoming first post, I decided to jump right into it and what better way to kick it off than with some Spring/Summer trends! So lets get right into it, eh?

Number 5.

Cut-outs. Like come on, how freaking cute are these? Dresses are coming with all sorts of cuts outs this season, and the daintier and more unique, the better!

Just don’t stay out in the sun too long with these bad boys, crazy tan lines alert!

6f5d2ea5a18a56a73f157317aa76536a 993aebeab39e478dcb86363512ac8d16 f63732b10f2bd11083ff1a845c895e79

Neumero 4.

Pastels are a BIG trend this S/S. They always make an appearance every year, but this year the emphasis is on baby pinks and purples. So pretty & girly!

Number 3!

I love a good messy hairdo. Knots, plaits and lots of teasing are all in this season. Embrace your inner frizzy queen!

Number 2.

Crop tops are the bomb.com! I love showing a bit of flesh, it’s modest yet girly and chic. These are oh so flattering and even more cute!

My ultimate SS fav, number 1!

Winter is long gone and it has taken the dark colours with it! I am weak for bright coloured dresses, and they are all over the shops like it’s nobodies business! Neons and colour blocking work great with my fair/medium skin tone, which is why I am in love!
