Fashion Fix Friday 1: Lupita Nyongo

Hi Lovelies

Apologies for not posting *you have permission to shake me into shape lol* I have been extremely busy lately, sorting out some exciting things. As Spring has begun new beginnings have started for me which hopefully means more time for blog posts ;)

I have decided to start a new series on the blog called 'FASHION FIX FRIDAY', which means every Friday I will try my hardest to be all things fashion. It may be an update on the current fashion trends, Fashion House's that I'm loving, Models or just general Fashion. If your lucky I may even document my attempts at learning how to sew lol.

Now we are truly into Spring , it highlights that its time to swap over your wardrobe from the rich and dark colours, to those pretty light and pastel colours. Spring is always a great time to breathe new life into fashion, as it gives you an opportunity to be daring and stand out.
No more hiding gorgeous pieces under a heavy coat or if it's anything like here being blown around with your umbrella like Mary Poppins :)
Come on belles its time to let your styling do the talking with those bold colour blocking pieces, or release that soft, innocent pastel passion!

The first in the series is on the gorgeous, inspirational and perfect Lupita Nyongo.

The Kenyan-Mexican born actress first graced our screens and quickly rose to stardom, in her powerful role as Patsey, in 'Twelve Year's a Slave'. However, it was not just her amazing talent as an actress that caught my eyes, but her impact on the fashion world.


This humble woman can do no wrong with her style. She has worn nearly every colour in the rainbow and executed each style with precision and grace. Her elegant style has seen her in beautifully soft gowns that just fall around her enviable figure. One minute she will be the girl next door with soft and draping silhouettes, and then the next she will surprise you by teaming a racy leather basque with a delicate skirt and fitted dress coat.

There are many chosen fashion houses that have been luckily enough to make it into the many looks of Lupita include; Prada, Ralph Lauren,Gucci, Giambattista Valli, Lanvin, Miu Miu, Stella McCartney,Jonathan Cohen, Michael Kors, Mary Katrantzou, Vivienne Westwood, Christian Dior, Givency etc. Lets just say her style bible is well and truly full of some of the most revered fashion houses.

However I have to give credit where it is due to her incredible stylist Micaela Erlanger, who knows how to dress Lupita elegantly, making her look effortlessly chic but also knows when to show some skin tastefully. Not only does her portfolio house Lupita, but includes the names of Michelle Dockery (Mary in Downton Abbey), Olivia Munn (Sloan Sabbith in Newsroom ), and Winona Ryder to name a few.

I love how Lupita is also trendtastic by joining the crop top and fitted skirt combo which is clearly a favourite among the Kardashian Klan as well as being a trend setter. But that outfit is not only memorable for displaying her figure, but also memorable for her heartfelt speech on beauty that captured the hearts of everyone.

Not only is she making waves in fashion by teaching us how to make a style statement, but she has branched into all things beauty by becoming the new face of the French cosmetic house Lancรดme

Lupita I name you my Style Queen of 2014 and fashion inspiration for Spring as you never fail to disappoint or astound all of your fashion fans!

Hugs and Kisses
