Trend Alert: Translucent Footwear

S/S18 Trend: Translucent Footwear

It's time to bare it all this Spring/Summer 18 with the translucent footwear trend that dominated the runway in the S/S18 shows.

 Initially seen in the Yeezy Season 2 S/S16 show this trend has caught the eyes of other high-fashion designers with its futuristic feel combined with the rise of more avant garde footwear designs.
From Chanel's plastic lucite thigh-high boots, (perfect for the typically rainy Spring weather) to Balmain's clear chunky heels, this trend is the one to focus on when purchasing your next pair of Summer sandals or boots (as boots are also in this season. 
The translucent footwear trend is mainly seen in heeled sandals, mules and boots and the materials used are plastic, PVC or sheer materials. This is the perfect shoe to make any basic outfit more on trend and contemporary.
Also seen in the Tibi, Prabel Gurung, Versus Versace, Salvatore Ferragamo, Off-white, Marco de Vincenzo, Roksanda, Julien Macdonald,Valentino, Giorgio Armani, Valentino and Alexander Wang catwalk shows.

Can You Pin It With Old English Co?

Can You Pin It With Old English Co?
I don't know about you guys but I am completely obsessed with stationary. I personally think this stems from childhood because every new school year my Mum would take me to WHSmith where I would be given my pocket money to go wild on new stationary including a new "Dear Diary", fluffy ballpoint pen,(identical to the one that Cher had in the movie Clueless) and lets not forget the smelly gel pens. My excitement for stationary continued throughout University too as well as now in my adult life. I have always been an owner of a annual organiser and calendar which I'd be a total unorganised mess without. The reason why I'm taking you on a trip down memory lane with me is because I have recently come across the cutest stationary and giftware brand, Old English Company. 
Old English Co is typically English in all ways possible and all of their products are uniquely hand-lettered. Their Calligraphy is beautiful and simplistic and best of all, they hand-write the most iconic quotes onto their products. Lets face it, who doesn't LOVE  a motivational quote or a meme?A small phrase which relates to you emotionally and lifts your spirits/motivates you when you need it most. Who wouldn't want their favourite quote written on an everyday item they use?
 Their product collection ranges from greeting cards, stationary, notepads, notebooks, notepads, calendars, keyrings, art prints, coasters, placemats, mugs, pillowcases, tea towels, aprons and enamel pins!

"The art is in the simplicity of our designs. Following no particular calligraphy rules, all of our products are uniquely hand-lettered to create stylish uncomplicated designs with messages that resonate with people". Old English Co Team
The brand has recently added new designs to their already existing enamel pin collection, which I personally can't wait to get my hands on. Each pin has a different quote or saying designed in the brands unique, simplistic, hand-lettered style. The enamel pins are the perfect fashion statement accessory. I would advise to wear a selection of multiple enamel pins from their collection ideally ones that are different shapes and colours. I would then wear them by randomly placing them on leather or denim jackets as well as pin them to bags.
Here are my personal favourites from their Enamel pin collection;
"She believed she could, so she did"
"She is Fierce"
"The no sleep gang"
"Coffee then the world"
"Buy me pizza and tell me I'm pretty"

Who Wore What At The Met Gala 2018

The Met Gala 2018
Yesterday on the 7th May 2018 the annual benefit event for the Metropolitan Museum of Arts Costume Institute, (also known at the Meta Gala), took place in New York City. Like every year there was specific dress code to the celebrity-only guest list, this years being, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & Catholic Imagination. This particular theme showcases how Catholicism has influenced fashion throughout history. This was possibly the best Met Gala theme to date. Not only was it a larger star- studded event, the Haute Couture gowns and overall looks were another level. The creativity, inspiration and diverse technicality in each design as well as the accessories, hair & makeup, it was all perfection and a vision to view on the red carpet, or in our case IG. 
This years individual looks really outshone the previous Met Gala's as I found it is extremely difficult to decide on which designer Haute Couture piece is my favourite and on which Celeb really "Slayed", their look.
I salute all the designers that took part to showcase their unbelievable creations on the Met Gala red carpet this year including; Alexander Wang, Ralph Lauren, Atelier Versace, Diane von Furstenberg, Dolce & Gabbana, Iris Van Herpen, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Prada and more.
My favourite looks from this years Met Gala included; Jennifer Lopez in Balmain, Kim Kardashian West in Versace, Hailey Baldwin in Tommy Hilfiger, Bella Hadid in Chrome Hearts Official, Blake Lively in Atelier Versace, Jasmine Saunders in H&M, Zendaya in Versace and Stella Maxwell in Moschino.
