Highlighter

I wore this dress to one of my birthday dinners and have been finding all sorts of ways to wear it ever since. You can tell from the texture it’s really lightweight and being satin makes it even more airy, both exactly what I need in this stiff August heat. ? Shoutout to my best friend for getting me these sunglasses at a street market. He bought a pair for my birthday which another one of my friends inadvertently sat on and broke that same night, I was absolutely traumatized. So out of pity, my best friend bought me three more, all different colors, each blocking out more sun than any other pair of sunglasses I’ve ever worn. Wearing an Asos dress (sold out- this), Nasty Gal platforms (sold out – these), shades by Scott.

Relax and Enjoy Life

Sanrdo ‘TrueLove’ sweatshirt, Nasty Gal skirt, Sandro booties, Furla ‘Yoyo’ cosmetic case & ‘Lady’ tassel charm. Athleisure has reached great new heights, allowing comfy clothes to become unlikely staples of sophisticated street style. Isn’t it great? From sweatpants with heels to graphic sweatshirts with skirts, there are endless ways to look chic but relaxed, and actually feel relaxed, too. I’ve barely taken off this adorable Sandro sweatshirt since I snagged it last month, and it looks just as cool with mom jeans and combat boots as it does dressed up with this flouncy skirt.

Smile Like Baymax

The first quarter of 2016 has made me a busy bee by juggling between full-time job and FnJ business – plus Jansellbiskwit blog of course. But instead of getting burned out, I find time to breathe some air, drink lots of water (Haha!) and get a good amount of sleep. Positive outlook also works. I consider each task/activity not as bunch of headaches but an opportunity to learn, connect and grow. When we choose to be happy, everything turns out smooth and easy. So stop frowning, smile like Baymax! On a scale of 1-10, how do you rate your happiness? Bags Life (via Zalora) cap, Revlon lipstick *Hype this look and follow me on Lookbook.

What to Wear to an Interview: A Fashion Guide

Like many others, you may be fresh out of college wanting to show off your skills and personality to a prospective company, but have your elders in your ear telling you how to dress the part even though it’s completely outdated. You may also have several years of experience in a particular field and are looking to make a career change, but haven’t touched up on what is appropriate to wear to that interview. It’s no secret the times have changed and in large part, thanks to our generation. We are bold, fearless, and determined. Some may categorize our efforts as lazy or unprofessional, mainly in the way we dress or carry ourselves, but we see our clothes and style telling a different story. Just decades ago jeans were more common for a relaxing Saturday morning or a night out at the local country club. Today they are found in many workplaces due to the comfort, diverse style changes, and revised fashion trends. That being said, our generation is making its way through the professional …

Outfit of the (Yester)day: Come Monday Night

Originally posted on mailbox mermaid:
My ultimate source of style aesthetic inspiration is the iconically twee 2014 Belle & Sebastian musical movie, God Help the Girl, a film in which Emily Browning and other cute hipster friends dance around Glasgow making music and wearing the best vintage-inspired clothing known to man. Talk about life goals. The mustard tones of this sweater remind me of the music video to the film’s title song, an indie-pop romp that features a lot of footage of gorgeous boater-hat-clad Emily lying in a sepia-toned field on a bright sunny day while singing. That sounds like my happy place in a nutshell. (Given the day of the week, though, this post is named after a slightly different God Help the Girl number.) Until I too can conquer my mental health demons by starting a retro band with Oly Alexander, I’m content to reenact my favorite film with what’s available to me: Peter Pan collars and warm colors galore! This is Modcloth’s Foxtail & Fern dress, the first item of clothing I ever purchased from that fine vintage-inspired,…

Tulle Me About It: One Skirt, Two Ways

Originally posted on mailbox mermaid:
Soft, dainty tulle skirts are, as Prospero famously says in the closing of The Tempest, such stuff as style dreams are made on. (Didn’t you know that Shakespeare’s iconic sorcerer was into pastel fashion?) Not only am I lucky enough to have a tulle skirt of my own–I bided my time for so long, waiting for a Charlotte Russe 50% off sale that finally hit in December–I’ve also discovered two very delightfully different ways of styling it. One matches perfectly with my 70s French Provincial dresser and vanity table (featured in the mirror shot above!) while the other looks vaguely vampire-slayer-at-a-gala. That’s a kind of duality I can live with. Tulle skirt ♥ Charlotte Russe Fake leather (always!) jacket ♥ a charity shop in Edinburgh   Cropped sweater and infinity scarf ♥ XXI Forever, as they’re calling themselves these days Striped crop top ♥ H&M, altered  Rose quartz pendant ♥ a strange, mystical rock shop near Zion National Park, Utah Considering that my second look was vaguely inspired by S1 Buffy’s “Prophecy Girl” attire,…

Envicase: A New Social Media for Fashion and Beauty

Originally posted on Written in the Cosmets:
Hey lovlies, I don’t usually do posts on apps but this past weekend I have fallen in love with this one called Envicase. Currently it is only available for iphones but it will be released to android in the future. What is it? It is a new mobile application in which users connect with each other through the items they own,sharing stories,providing useful shopping tips, and “envying” one another. I know the word envy makes it seem kind of snobbish but let me tell you it is not! It’s a great tool for discovering new items. You post a picture, say where you bought it and the price! I am in love but I don’t think my wallet will be in a few months haha Check it out and add me, inthecosmets ! Thanks for reading — xxoo Corinne Facebook Instagram Twitter Tsu ?

A Trace of Teal

Originally posted on The Flower That Blooms:
This is something that you’ll rarely see; us two in colour. But we’ve tried so many different things fashion wise this year already, maybe it’s the start of a new thing? We’re gradually adding a splash of colour to our almost all black wardrobes, hey, you should be proud of us guys! We’re loving the colour teal at the moment. There’s something quite majestic about it, when we think of the colour, the word ‘mermaids’ are instantly brought to our minds! Who doesn’t want to feel like a mermaid? Rachel:  Jacket- Forever 21 Top- Young Guns merch Skirt- Urban Outfitters Boots- Dr Martens Skirts have been some of my favourite items of clothing to buy recently, so when I found this teal A-Line skirt in the Urban Outfitters sale, I didn’t hesitate to order it. I like to make excuses a lot of the time, this occasion being “hey, it will go perfectly with my new docs, so I need it”. I love how it has the buttons at…

Boohoo Fashion Resolutions

Originally posted on The Flower That Blooms:
At the beginning of January we were contacted by Boohoo and asked if we would like to collaborate on a resolutions post. Every year the majority of people make resolutions they can’t keep, so Boohoo decided to give bloggers the chance to make a resolution they’d hopefully stick to! They kindly gifted us an item each that we wouldn’t normally go for but wanted to try and style. So here are the pieces we chose, let’s hope we can stick to this resolution! Rachel: Lara High Rise Skinny Jeans I’ve always been a fan of patterned trousers but I’ve never been brave enough to buy myself a pair. This was the perfect opportunity to get myself some and try something new, finally! I love the red and black check design, they’re also high waisted which is something I like my trousers to be. I’d say the material makes them feel more like thin trousers than jeans but regardless of this I love them! I styled the trousers with a black cropped…

Originally posted on Written in the Cosmets:
Whats Ipsy? They are a $10/month beauty subscription box that sends you deluxe and full size samples every month! Click here to check them out. Ipsys January theme is ‘All Eyes on You’ which features a super cute retro bag that is patterned on the front and blue on the back. Here are the products I recieved: MARSK Mineral Eyeshadow in Mudcake – $22.50 This is a full sized product, at first look when I opened this, I wasn’t in love but once I swatched it I saw it’s true beauty. It’s kind of a brown-plum with a hint of green glitter, had me mesmerzied! For being a 100% mineral all natural shadow is has an extremely soft, creamy texture blends out beautifully! It is also very versatile, you can use it by itself, over other shadows, or as the picture above shows the different pay offs while wet, primed, and diffrent bases(ipsy’s picture). I’m not sure of the staying power yet but I will keep you all…
