IT'S MY BIRTHDAY ☺ Lets Write a Style Story.

WARNING; THIS IS A POST WITH BARELY ANY PICTURES JUST TOO MANY WORDS AND A COOL VIDEO

Its today, my special day, I've been waiting all year...and its finally here.
It's my Birthday, I'm so happy today, its my birthday, I,m so happy, happy, happy, HAAAPPPPYYY todaaaaaaaaay!
People have been asking why I am so excited about today,with the countdown and all I mean its just a birthday... well, no its not, Its mid year. My birthday is not about the turn up (which I don't partake in) or the excessive eating (which I do everyday) its a time to reflect. Saddly plans have to be postpone for business reasons and to be honest I am kind of happy I will have a lot more time to myself, no hustles and thus I'm sited here witting this post at 6a.m before heading to work.
The reason i am so excited is; I am exactly where I wanted to be at this point in my life! How cool is that?? Like how many of you can actually say that... and mean it? Like if I was to go back, I wouldn't change a thing. This post. However, is more about style

"There is style in every story" Ezil

This has been my slogan for as long as I can remember, I don't recall how or why I came up with it but I love it. I am writing my story and along the way I have learned a few things I would love to share with you today, give you tips to help you write your style story.


My advice for dressing in your 20’s;

 I have learnt SO MUCH about what is flattering on me it’s unbelievable. I look good in figure hugging, knee length, sleeved dresses and crop tops. I look rubbish in sleeveless outfits and really short attires make my legs look dumpy and stumpy next to my dachshund-esque super long torso. 

My advice for dressing in your 20’s is to experiment like a mofo. Wear as many different styles as you can manage and try out different cuts. This is the time of your life when you should really start paying attention to what cuts and tailoring work for your figure. Obviously your weight will fluctuate through out the years but if you are within your healthy weight range (and it’s highly likely that you are at the age of 20) what your body looks like now is it’s natural shape. If you gain weight it will still be that shape but bigger. If you lose weight it will be that shape but smaller.

On the real though wear whatever you like. And by that I mean whatever YOU like. Not what some Hollywood, fish-lipped clone with twigs for arms likes. Or what her stylist likes.
  • Stop dressing for the man you hope to meet – How many times have you put on a fabulous pants with some funky t-shirt and thought ‘No guy will ask me out while I am wearing this’ and then taken it off before leaving the house? Come on we’ve all done it. And how many times have you spent hours doing your hair into fabulous bantu knots only to have your average pony tailed friend get picked up by the hottest guy there? I used to dress for guys and then I turned 20 and thought how incredibly stupid that is. Essentially you want a man who wants you for you. And if you managed to attract a guy by dressing like a slut when you really have the heart of a librarian you’ve just made yourself a match in hell. Keep dressing the way you want and your Mr Perfect will come along… don’t change your look for someone less than princely.

  • Don't beat yourself up– So your bum is a little on the flabby side. Your thighs are made of jelly.You have tuck-shop lady arms. Guess what? Nobody cares! Guess what else? chances are it will only get worse. Harsh, but true. What you need to do is realize that you are in your physical prime! Play up your good bits like your tits or your killer shoulders. Got great legs? Show em off! Conceal your jiggly bits and flash your crowd pleasers… it’s your time to shine baby.

  • Don’t overspend on clothes – There is no need to spend every spare cent on clothes. There are always cheaper options available and I promise that no one will notice where you buy your clothes if you wear them well and hold yourself like a queen.However, if you really must have that trendy coat that costs 6,000, hit me up and we can make it for 1/4 the price.

  • Don’t flash your below-the-belt-bits – There is nothing worse a than a 20 something beauty wearing a minge-flashing mini because she has killer legs. Your legs are still going to be killer if you cover your fanny. Just adding a couple of extra inches can make a mini classy as opposed to trashy. Think Halle Berry not Paris Hilton.

  • Don’t obsess over your style– There is no shame in dressing like Sporty Spice one minute and Posh Spice the next. You’re young and free and foolish. Make as many fashion mistakes and triumphs as you can. It’s spectacular to dress with reckless abandon… and don’t apologize for it.

  • Be flirty and fun and don’t take yourself seriously. Wear a summer dress with a leather jacket. Or tailored pants with army boots. Add a scarf and sweats. Be spontaneous. The most important thing to remember in your 20’s is to do what you want to do. And avoid looking trashy.

Hope that helps you create your fabulous style story my 20-somethings, wish me a Happy Birthday
