I have some very stylish friends, so I’d like to show them off every now and then!
Stephany is one of my most stylish friends, which is no surprise as she used to run a business as an image consultant for a couple of years. Stephany is always very well groomed and I’m always impressed by her makeup which is flawless. This black dress by Lui Jo suits her body perfectly and I love the detailing on the top. How I wish I would have some of that gorgeous hair too! I noticed how it looked particularly good on this day and she shared her new secret weapon with me. It’s actually a hairdryer that serves as a curler at the same time. May have to try that out…. She is not quite 40 yet, but this dress would look great on many 40+ woman. She told me that it is one of her favorite dresses and that she has owned it for a couple of years already. So unfortunately, no longer available in stores. She now runs a new business in expat coaching.
Faithful readers will already know Anja, which has been featured on this site a couple of times. Anja is great in that she is the complete opposite of me in many ways. Lots of makeup, perfectly accessorised and usually a more is more approach in clothing. Not afraid to dress in colour and prints, she looks great in this dress from H & M, Anja’s favorite store, which highlights her fabulous legs. I think this dress is brand new, so may still be available at a store near you! Online, Anja can be found at her website, where she currently shows photos of the recent Thaipusam ceremony. Fascinating!
And here is little old me again as well, this time in a bright silk top from Alldressedup. If you feel that this top is familiar, then you are right. I actually showed a pink version to you once in my article tops that can be used as basics as well. You will also notice that my skirt is rather short. Something I don’t do so often anymore these days. But I thought it would be fun to wear this skirt to my lunch with Stephany and pair it with my more dressy top. It’s actually a golf skirt from Stella McCartney’s sport collection for Adidas, but I have worn this skirt more in other social occasions. I always think it’s fun to mix a more dressy top with a more casual or sporty skirt (or vice versa) as I did in my article on wearing formal wear more informal. Wearing it with my high red heels made the whole dressy and hip and I think the short mini skirt was ok in this instance.
Over to you now! You know that I now offer the opportunitiy to show off your style in my forum right? So for all of you that feel like it, go ahead and do it. No need to worry about the quality of the pictures there; it’s all allowed (except for nudity of course…). Just keep the image under 1mb of size.
I look forward to seeing how you have been dressing in STYLE!
