Feud TV series - Bette Davis and Joan Crawford

Anybody else been watching Feud? I have been and I'm loving it.

I knew of the long-standing feud between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. I didn't really know what was behind it all. 

I'm sure the tv series is a very exaggerated version of what actually went down, but it's so deliciously scandalous. Highly recommended.



Turn Your Outfit From Weary to Wow in Seconds

The daily struggle with accessoring correctly is real. Some days it just all falls into place other days we can turn our wardrobes upside down looking for the perfect item to complete our look.

So what if we could engineer a system that could take the headache out of accessorising and have you navigating your way around your wardrobe like a pro? Well you’re in luck as we have created a foolproof system that will turn your rabid morning wardrobe search into a breeze.

A Quiet Moment's Contemplation

The calm before the storm, if you will. Before you even open your wardrobe consider first your day ahead. Where are you going? What does your day involve? Are you dressing to impress? Go bold. Are you going to be running from meeting to meeting? Comfort is key. Are you meeting friends for post-work drinks? Make sure your accessories can be ramped up at the end of the day, or pop an extra special bling bling in your bag to turn your work outfit into instant glam.

Balance

If your outfit is heavy on colour, pattern or shape this is no excuse to abandon your accessories. If you feel that jewellery, belts or scarves would overpower your outfit look at other areas you can add to your outfit. Think about balancing with the right shoes or something as simple as a pretty hair feature or colour block handbags.

Try Not to Overmatch

Sometimes we can overthink it and try to over colour coordinate or try to tie our outfits together too uniformly. Try to incorporate an element of freedom when assembling your outfit then when it comes to the final touches opt for something that you wouldn’t necessarily immediately go for. Accessorising is all about being playful and finding what works for you.

Keep Your Eyes Peeled

There has never been a better time to be able to add variety to our wardrobe and individual style. It doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg to do it. Keep your eyes peeled on the high street for must-have items or try one of these coupon codes from Carson’s to find interesting pieces at great prices.

Mix Textures & Fabrics

Don’t be afraid to experiment with different materials and textures. Combining metal bangles with leather bracelets will add a bohemian twist to your look. Or topping off your delicate silk summer dress with heavy statement jewellery will balance the style of your outfit.

Groom & Preen

Whilst jewellery, scarves, belts, bags and shoes are the cornerstone of the accessory world that doesn’t mean that we can’t use our natural features to accentuate our outfits. Thinking ahead the night before means that you can paint nails in a colour that will polish off your outfit, or you can think of hairstyles that will best reflect the style vibe you are going for the next day.

Finding your perfect accessories should be fun and free. So spend time experimenting with what works the best for showcasing your individual style.
