This is my entry for the Debenhams Autumn/Winter ’14 Blogger Style Challenge - more details here. I am creating an outfit based on Debenhams six key A/W14 trends: Modern Military, Pastel Palette, Autumn Luxe, Blue Notes, Pinks & Berries or Winter Greens.
I've chosen Pastel Palette for myself. As you probably know I am a huge fan of pastel shades ever since a mint green nail polish from Chanel called Jade started the trend a couple of seasons ago. I always feel very cute and feminine in pastel pinks and lilacs and I think it's also perfect to emulate current Clueless fashion.
I am starting with this amazing Miss Selfridge Shawl collar fur coat which will keep me warm no matter what cold weather may be in London. I decided to pick a party dress which will be perfect for a Christmas party or a family gathering - Début Amethyst jewel trim midi dress has just a perfect amout of sparkle and lovely floaty design. J by Jasper Conran Designer grey suede slingback high court shoeslook look absolutely amazing and I think they would be a perfect heels to dance your night away. To carry all of my essentials I've picked H! by Henry Holland lips bag - super girly and cute. On my nails I would definitely have one of my favourite nail polish shades - Essie Mint Candy Apple nail polish - it's epitome of pastel hues and a firm favourite of many fashionistas. Prada Candy Florale Eau de Toilette looks and smells playful and flirty while Floozie by Frost French Gold plated teardrop stone earrings would add an extra touch of glamour. To prevent any runny nose or Lemsip action I'd wear Red Herring Pale pink metallic cable knit bobble hat - it has the most gorgeous metallic cable knit to add this extra bit of sparkle.
My second outfit is based on Winter Greens trend and reflects style and personality of lovely Gemma from a wonderful blog Gemsies. She has recently changed her colour to a darker one so I think green shades will go perfectly with her new mane and porcelain skin. I also nominate her for the challenge and can't wait to see her choices!
First, I picked this gorgeous Red Herring Dark green peter pan collar lace dress - I think it's something Gemma would definitely wear since it has a very cute Peter Pan collar and pretty daisy lace overlay. To get some warmth during autumn walks I've chosen The Collection Dark green textured reefer jacket which has an amazing textured effect and its classic shape will never go out of style. Then I added The Collection Black suedette mid heel ankle boots which are perfect to wear with the dresses, skirts and jeans this time of the year. Todd Lynn/EDITION Designer khaki leather tote bag would be perfect match since it is big enough to fit all of Gemma's uni essentials and still look super smart. I went for gold and forest green accessories: Principles by Ben de Lisi Designer pearl and green teardrop earrings and Floozie by Frost French Gold plated cutout cuff bracelet. Last, but not least - how gorgeous is this Yves Saint Laurent Couture Palette?! - it simply screams luxury and style.
