Keep things bright this Autumn!!

Ladies, just because we are approaching Halloween, you can see your breath in the morning and apparently the first Christmas tree in Belfast has been spotted at a house just off the Falls Road, doesn’t mean that we have to go all “wintery”.  In other words, dress in bleak and gloomy colours

Already the High Street is filling shop floors with grey, aubergine, plum, brown and beige tones with the odd dot here and there of on trend colour of the moment, blush pink and of course tartan print fabrics which is a major trend right now.  But don’t let this stop you from experimenting with colour!  Just check out Victoria Secret model, Karlie Kloss and actress Olivia Munn, both of whom are rocking bright hues on the red carpet.

Belle Dress Hire just off the M1 motorway at Lisburn, has some really beautiful coloured dresses available to hire at the moment which paired with a fur shrug could be worn to any event up until Christmas!

Clueless? I think NOT!!

I was in my absolute element on Sunday afternoon when I watched cult classic, Clueless with Alicia Silverstone and the late Brittany Murphy.  Whilst I was so excited to see the film for the first time in years, I also felt a tinge of sadness coming over me when I realised that I’d forgotten poor Brittany Murphy is no longer with us. If you haven’t looked at how Brittany cared for her cancer stricken mum and husband you should read the article by The Hollywood Reporter. An inspirational and tragic story.

Anyway, as I said before, I have always LOVED this film and back in the day thought Alicia Silverstone was the most beautiful girl in the world and SO wanted to be like her.  Who can forget her puppy dog eyes as the lovable character, Cher and those AMAZING plaid suits and over-the-knee socks ..

I remember begging my mum to buy me a similar outfit from the label, Replay which I still have in the wardrobe!  Now whilst the jacket and skirt combo might be a little too much for walking down Belfast’s Royal Avenue, I am so going to dust off this outfit and pair the jacket with jeans and the skirt with a plain polo neck as I’m sure you fashionistas out there know …. TARTAN IS BACK IN FASHION!  This trend is HUGE for Autumn/Winter 2013 and has the top celebs such as Victoria Beckham and Katy Perry, copying the style made famous by the film Clueless over 8 years ago!!!

There is a valuable lesson to be learnt here ladies, DON’T THROW ANYTHING OUT!!!  Pack it away for a few seasons before it reemerges as the next big fashion trend!
