Lately, I feel as though I’ve really been listening to my heart when it comes to how I dress. It sometimes difficult (especially when you’re a blogger) to get sucked into the trends and popular items, basically you pretty much start dressing like a Topshop window display, purely because you’re trying to put your head in ‘blogger’ mode. For me, style is all about expressing who you really are, it’s a way to express the colours of your soul!
Many times I’ve been asked ‘How would you describe your personal style?” I’ve always been unsure on how to answer that question. However when I look back on my teenage self when I wasn’t blogging and I was just trying to express myself in any way possible, I always loved colour, florals and anything 60’s/70’s inspired! As a teenager I was constantly rummaging in vintage shops and was convinced I was born in the wrong decade. As an adult, I’ve really been trying to listen to what teenage me would be fan-girting over, which has resulted in me channeling my 70’s alter ego!
Thanks to Free People my style dreams have been answered, they sent me a surprise parcel with a secret look for me to style on their Free People Me App. The ladies at Free People couldn’t have sent me an outfit that as more ‘Me’ the flared floral smock dress and the suede tassel bag, just scream 70’s style! I felt like I should have been dancing around at Woodstock with flowers in my hair! It’s as though Free People know me and my style more than I do myself!
FREE PEOPLE ME APP
The App has became my new obsession, I’m so excited to start sharing my Free People looks on their now that I have some photographs to do so! The app is pretty much like a shapable instagram feed – An instagram for shop-a-holies if you will! I love how you can search style pics from all over the world, whether you’re following them or not, it becomes pretty addictive scrolling through all these amazing outfits, styled my real people, on real people! Usually when I purchase things from the internet, I’m somewhat disappointed because I simply don’t look like the model does in the item, however the app allows you to see what the clothing looks like on ladies all over the world, and then you can shop the items right there and then – It’s convenience at its finest!
The dress was pretty much love at first sight! I’m a complete sucker for flared sleeves and these sleeves have the most exaggerated and elegant flare sleeves that I’ve ever had the pleasure of laying my eyes on! The dress fits as a smock dress, which I think is perfect for every season, I mean how amazing would this dress be at festivals paired with a tassel jacket and a floral crown! However it looks just as amazing styled for the Autumn with rights and boots! Items like this are just so versatile when it comes to styling from season to season!
Lets just have a moment in silence for the suede tasseled bag! Have you ever laid eyes on an item SO beautiful, because I know I haven’t! I’ve never owned a bag that is such amazing quality, I just know this is going to last me a lifetime! The bag is mostly suede, however it has a front pocket in a soft leather, which is a slightly darker red! I love the combination of textures and shades, it makes the bag so truly unique!
