Dry your Tiers - Outfit Try-On
These fashion posts are becoming almost like a monthly fashion forecast, where we talk about what outfits look good with others, and then we figure out whether or not we’ll be able to wear them now or in a few months when the lockdowns are over. On a positive note, our wardrobes should be fully stocked with comfy hoodies, baggy joggers and cosy warm pieces.
I’ve always thought that if a person looks gorgeous in their home environment, they pretty much look good anywhere. Your home is normally the place you’re put in the least effort with what you’re wearing, because you’re comfortable - so these lockdowns are great because they’re helping us to learn how we can look effortlessly fly. So do excuse the fact that most of these images have been taken indoors, because of course we can’t go out! Consider this a pre-plan for your future outfits.
So straight up is this gorgeous lilac tracksuit from, Femmeluxe. Yes it is as gorgeous as it looks. I WANT TO DIE IN THIS COLOUR. The tracksuit top is slightly cropped, reducing the slouchy look and trading it in for something more cute. The top also has a hood, so whether you’re nipping to the shops, lounging on the sofa or heading out for a stroll, rest assured you will be lovely and warm.
When I went to Richmond Park, where these pictures were shot, the weather was around 1 degree. So it was COLD AF. So I made sure to layer up with some leggings underneath the joggers, and by doing so I was able to walk around with my trousers folded up, as if it were autumn again. I had on my simple, sporty pumas with my joggers, but outfits like these are so versatile.
To dress this up, I’d wear a pair of clear heels or sandals. To add some edge, perhaps a pair of flat, combat boots or a pair of converse (my fave).
Modern Day Antics
How brilliant are these high waist trousers from Femmeluxe? The slogan ‘Modern day antics’ is splashed all across them which I thought were so fun. I love an adventure and a fun day out as much as the next millennial/Gen Z, so why not express that with a pair of funky trousers!
The slogan is strewn across in black writing meaning that you can wear pretty much anything black with these trousers to tone down the look (if you wish to) as well as to match these busy bottoms.
They’re high waisted and slim legged, so you can still look cute with body suits or slouchy tops you can touch in. I decided to wear a cropped one, again because I’m at home and because I thought this outfit looked subtle and cute.
Wear these trousers all year round to add to your cheeky side!
Red ribbed off shoulder shirt
So if there were any vibe you were getting from this off the shoulder top from Femmeluxe it would definitely be date night vibes. The off-the-shoulder style, giving the shirt a slight romantic touch as it exposes your collarbones and neck area. This plunge neck area is a great area to dress up and add new touches to any outfit, and this top makes it all that much easier. I would style this top with a choker or a body chain. Make sure you add lots of highlighter to this area too. It’s great for adding a touch of flare and dazzle.
Wear a red push-up bra to enhance this area, and be sure to spray lots and lots of your favourite fragrance!
Cropped Denim Jacket
This cropped black denim jacket from Femmeluxe seriously excites me because I feel as though I’m back in the 80’s, an era I seriously wish I grew up in at times. I’ve always wanted a black denim jacket, because my blue one becomes part of my staple outerwear in the summer. I completed this look with a black mini shoulder bag.
I get such kim possible vibes. The denim feel great and unlike most cropped jackets it actually has REAL buttons, although I can’t ever see myself buttoning this one up! I can’t lie that when I put this outfit on I felt a boost of excitement so I cannot wait to wear this out once our lockdown is actually done!
See you next time my loves!
Joggin for Joy
There’s always that one piece of clothing that becomes super trendy every year. That one item or accessory you know everyone has at least one of in their wardrobe. Sometimes you may even have them in more than one colour and size. I think that piece for 2020 has got to be joggers. I mean how many pairs do you and all your friends own? How many posts have you scrolled and spotted with your favourite style icon rocking a pair of those comfy, curve exaggerating pants?
It’s a known fact I love wearing joggers, I mean – name me a time wearing them is inappropriate? Exactly! So with this Femmeluxe collaboration I have not one, but two gorgeous joggers to share with you all. Kicking it off with these gorgeous baby blue joggers, which I absolutely adore. I love clothes that are vibrant, because I’m a strong believer that what you wear reflects how you feel, but can also attract better feelings too!
(If you read this post until the end you will find a cheeky surprise along the way too!)
Baby Blue Joggers
I love these joggers purely because of the colour and feel. As I’ve mentioned in previous jogger-blog posts (that sounds funny doesn’t it) these are dead comfortable, and super roomy. The days are definitely getting colder, so a great way to disguise layering your clothes without leaving bumps and lumps underneath your outfit is by pulling on a pair of warm leggings to wear UNDERNEATH your Femmeluxe joggers. People will ask you, confused – “Aren’t you cold?” and you’ll reply “No” leaving them wondering whether you’re immune to the cold or if you’re just a die-hard fashionista. Either way, they’re not bad!
I would wear these with a pair of trainers, either low or high top. Just to complete the comfy look. These would rock well with some white sneakers or even blue ones – depending on what colours you choose to wear with the rest of them. Rest assured, a cropped puffer jacket or bomber would also do the trick!
Marble Joggers & Corset Top
Taking the stage next are the second pair of joggers in this collab, but what’s most unusual about these is that the print of these Femmeluxe joggers have a marble effect! Have you seen some like these before? Break-up the usual boring plain colours with a print you know will make a statement and not make your outfits clash. The black and white marble effect makes these joggers so easy to find an outfit to wear with! Wear a black leather jacket with this one to shake up the look or throw on some Jordan’s and a black (or white) oversized bomber. Throw a cute bag on with it too, maybe add a pop of colour to your accessories to break up the monochrome vibe or keep it that way!
The other piece from this Femmeluxe collaboration was the gorgeous black corset, and look how well it pairs with these joggers? I love that corsets have become so fashionable, because it makes our boobs like amazing and pulls our stomach and waist together. I would wear these with an array of outfits. From skirts to flares, shorts and high waisted jeans or joggers, this black corset top adds a gorgeous touch of sex appeal. For accessories, I always wear my crystals. With a bare neckline you can use this space to really dress up the plain black, so why not try a stacking necklace or a choker to match?
Houndtooth oversized jumper dress
So Femmeluxe are serving some of the best winter vibes at such an affordable price. Another unusual pick I chose for this collaboration is this dog tooth pull over. It’s not normally something I would, go for, but I chose it because I know for a fact, I needed a statement piece that everyone else didn’t have, but had to be winter appropriate. This dog tooth print is a classic winter piece, have you noticed you see this print everywhere in the wintertime? It’s no secret that pieces like this look so incredible with knee high boots, long winter trench coats and leather items. I’m wearing an oversized shirt with it because it just looks gorgeous, and it takes the look from posh school girl to… posh school girl goes to dinner in Mayfair!
For added warmth this pullover is made from a lovely thick cotton material, which is also nice and breathable!
So I have a little surprise – I now have a referral code that you can use with Femmeluxe! That means, you can get clothes from Femmeluxe for a cheaper price when you use my code at the checkout! See the code below, and feel free to share it with all your friends and family so they can stay on top of their fashion game too!
Femmeluxe Lockdown Loungin'
I’m back again with yet another set of fashionable looks for you to admire from Femmeluxe. So BJ, Bozzy Jo, Boris Johnson or whatever you choose to call our prime minister has decided that our lockdown will be ending next week, so this post will simply be sharing some of the gorgeous looks I have sported whilst on my lockdown. (I’m hinting mainly at the loungewear btw). I think one of the most important things lockdown has taught us all is that looking good should not be limited to when you’re going outside. When you’re waking up in the same place every day – you get bored, and that even extends to how you look – I mean have you seen some of the crazy hairstyles that came out the last lockdown?
So here are some lockdown inspired looks for you, and if they’re not going to carry you through the rest of lockdown then they’ll surely give you the best inspiration for when you’re ready to step back out.
Biege Loungewear set Femmeluxe
Okay, yes you’ve seen similar looks across my gram and blog before, but so what? That should be enough signal for you to realise how much I absolutely adore wearing outfits and loungwear like this from FemmeLuxe. I’ll break it down for you too!
The ribbed texture: First of all, I can’t get enough of ribbed looks. The reason I say this is because the material makes everything look BIGGER. As I’ve mentioned many times before, I’m a slim girl. (I wear a UK size 8-10) so any outfit that is ready to give me a bit of curve, I want it! The ribbed texture makes both my butt and boobs look great, all whilst being skinny – so I highly recommend them for my other slim chicks!
The colour: Can I get a hell yes for the colour?! I think what’s most incredible about this is literally the colour. I’ve seen comments on twitter and other platforms that beige/brown/nude are all colours that are overplayed, but for me – that isn’t true at all! I think particularly in the winter, beige looks incredible – pair it with a burgundy a maroon, a khaki or more brown! Whatever you choose, this outfit is perfect for autumn and winter.
I paired it with a simple pair of nude- leather converse (because what other shoes do I wear) but I think some clear Perspex heels or a cute pair of loafers would look great in these. What shoes would you pair this with?
Black Tie Loungewear set
There is so much power in wearing an outfit and being able to effortlessly look good. Don’t you think? If you could just throw on an outfit and know it immediately works? That’s how I feel with this cute, black loungewear set from Femmeluxe . It’s an effortless outfit, throw it on and it looks good automatically.
Black is super slimming, so if you love an outfit that gives you that effect it’s this one right here. The top half of this outfit has a belt attached to it, giving nothing but pure empress vibes. This placement is great for actually making you look curvier, as it synches in your waist, pulling you in for the gram. If you’re like me, I tie my belts uncomfortably tight, so watch out for that. The top isn’t too low cut (so you can keep warm of course) , which for me screams ‘loungewear’ vibes.
If you’re like me, you just want to feel warm, and baggy oversized clothes do that. The texture of this outfit, like the last is ribbed! You know what that means? More CURVES! How exciting.
Black Bralet style
The final piece I’m sharing with you from Femmeluxe is this gorgeous black, Bralet style mesh top. This piece is more for when lockdown lifts next week (and for stunting for the haters) and can be paired simply how I’ve paired this top (With a pair of denim jeans) or with something sexier, like a schoolgirl skirt, or a pair of PVC leggings. What I love the most about this top, is literally the tie at the front! The tighter you pull it, the bigger your boobs look, it’s like a game! I would recommend a style like this for parties and nights out with the girls. Better yet- wear this one for your man, I’m sure he’ll love it as much as you do.
Until Next Time,
Lockdown Looks 2.0
What are the chances that the moment I start collaborating with the amazing Femmeluxe again, Boris decides we need to hop in another lockdown. I would love to suggest wearing these clothes out to a meal or for a night out, but the only place we’ll be heading till December 4th is our lounge, the garden and to Tesco (please stay safe!).
This post is full of ‘lock down looks’ and hopefully you’ll still feel inspired to dress up and wear nice clothes you love even though you aren’t going anywhere at all! Lockdown shouldn’t stop you from looking and feeling good at home!
Couture top and Joggers
So I’ve now had to put this oversized couture top at the back of my wardrobe along with the sand joggers from Femmeluxe I’m wearing in this shot, not because the outfit looks bad, but because it looks so good that if I don’t add some restraint I’d be rocking this fit every single day. No, it isn’t that I don’t have clothes, it’s that this oversized t-shirt and joggers are both comfortable and stylish, and as I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts – are two factors on the ‘Banging Outfit’ scale which decide whether or not I rock an outfit or hide an outfit.
So let’s go from top to bottom. This black oversized Couture top from Femmeluxe is EVERYTHING, the fact we can pair it with some simple joggers and it works this well with the outfit screams ‘buy me’. I ordered a size 16 because I wanted the top to be extra oversized, and let me tell you, it’s a perfect fit. Being oversized means you can pair this gorgeous shirt with a pair of leggings, cycling shorts, jeans and even knee-high socks (in the summer of course).
The print of this tee screams ‘baddie’. Stylish and subtle, the tee mimics old-school hip-hop fashion prints and I’m so hear for it. This powerful tee has the ability to dress up any plain outfit, so even if you’re just going to the shops to stock up on your essentials I guarantee you’ll attract a few envious stares (I’m saying this because it’s happened to me haha).
The material is cotton which is amazing for breathability and warmth, particularly because we’re heading into those treacherous winter months’ we need to keep warm. Keeping warm and looking stylish finally goes hand in hand.
The sand joggers from Femmeluxe – where do I begin? The sandy beige colour gives these joggers a touch of class. These shades of nude, beige, brown and camel are so trendy this year! These joggers are the warmest, most comfortable joggers I’ve ever worn. They fit so well, with enough room and space to tuck in your shirts.
The inside of these joggers are lined with fleece, which is just what we need when we’re lounging at home or out in the cold. I love that they also make me look a curvier, and they’re big enough to even layer up with leggings underneath.
This shirt dress from Femmeluxe is so sexy I can feel the room heating up as I type this article. This style came into fashion earlier last year, and we’ve seen similar styles on the Balenciaga runway. I love this dress because it synches’ in your waist, giving you the ‘coca -cola’ figure. I’ve seen this style dress worn with corsets over the top, which breaks up the white and give it a pop of colour. I’ve just decided to wear it alone, unbuttoning some of the buttons so I don’t look too school girl. Throw on some heels and exaggerate your legs. I’m in love with this dress and I can’t wait to wear it out!
Green Loungewear Set
I’m just obsessed with this green co-ord from Femmeluxe. These slinky trousers have been a favourite of mine since they came back into fashion two years ago. This outfit is very 70’s and the colour is so fitting this autumn/winter. The material is so soft, you can easily pull your top over without feeling restricted (some crop tops have a habit of being too tight, especially if you’ve got a bigger bust).
I think this outfit is super chic, and I chose to use a red mini bag as an accessory to pair with it. I’m wearing converse to really give it that 70’s feel (they’re also my favourite shoes) but I know this outfit would look just as bomb with a pair of plexi heels.
What did you think of to I styled these outfits? Which one is your favourite?
Until next time,
August into Autumn With Femmeluxe
Ribbed Peach Loungewear Set
Grey one shoulder loungewear set
Just as you thought I was sick and tired of loungewear sets, i come stomping through wearing my grey high top converse with another one (LOL). In the shots above I'm wearing this grey one shoulder loungewear set from Femmeluxefinery, and I have so much to say!
Firstly - HELLO COMFORT! You guys all know I'm so big on comfort, particularly because I'm a virgo, I need something both stylish and practical. This loungewear set is both of those things, I mean - just look at the poses I'm hitting, and it's not stressing the outfit one bit!
The colour is the second thing I wanted to touch on, because, have you ever seen a shade of grey like that before? It's a gorgeous blue-grey which makes this fit perfect for summer styling, as it's not too dark or too bright. The one shoulder style is awesome because it also gives you that half summer half autumn vibe. What are your thoughts lovelies? I'm currently living in this where the weather allows.
Even better yet, why not match the leggings up with something different? LIke a cute bodysuit or bandeau? The possibilities are endless, but huni - thats fashion for you!

Until next time my loves, and don't forget to send me an email or DM letting me know what you think of this months styles!
The July Wardrobe
In every wardrobe, a girl should have themselves a bodycon dress, and it MUST be strapless. I didn’t realise how fitting these dresses can be for just everyday wear. I always thought that dresses, especially ones like this nude corset strapless bodycon dress from Femmeluxe had to be worn with heels and a posh blazer. I slung a pair of vans on with these and it looked awesome. It’s totally time to make use of our dresses, since the lockdown has stopped us going out – it’s time to bring the Friday night out looks back in! Who says stars should wait till the night to shine?

Lookbook From Lockdown
It's month whatever of lockdown, but the fashion world never sleeps!
It’s week whatever the number now of lockdown and I’m still here trying on cute clothes and if you’re not then why aren’t you? This is the best time for you to be revamping yourself and having fun (whilst of course being productive) so make getting dressed up no exception.
The benefits of dressing up with nowhere to go are being able to feel good as a result of looking good. When you pass a mirror and catch a glimpse of yourself you should see the reflection of the person you aspire to be. You send your mind a subconscious message that this is the physical reality you’re trying to tap into. Look good at home! Take some bomb pictures of yourself, go through your wardrobe and finally get around to doing that spring clean that you’ve been putting off for so long!
So while we rotate on this never ending lockdown CD I’ve brought along from fresh fashion from Quarantine. Grab some inspo, grab your tea and let’s dive into this months Collab.
