Fail safe way to wear vintage pieces

Hey everyone! Vintage pieces can be tricky to pull off as there is a huge risk of looking dated but there is one fail safe way of making them look completely today appropriate, pairing with modern accessories. Like in todays look i wore my dark floral vintage skirt and embroidered boho blouse with super trendy laceup cutout block heels.
To make my loose vintage boho outfit city appropriate i wore a structured bag, which contrasted with the loose silhouette of the outfit and wore my daniel wellington watch which added elegance and class to the otherwise free flowing mood of the look. 
This look is also a good example of how side tucking can make two loose pieces work.

The whole outfit is from Joe browns. If you love vintage pieces, this shop you should definitely check out, you will be amazed at the selection and they also have gorgeous florals for summer in both the men and the women section. The skirt is actually reversible so you get two for the price of one and the blouse is going to be on repeat as it has the most comfortable fabric and beautiful subtle embroiderey, perfect for summer. Their online shop delivers worldwide and the delivery is quite fast.

How to dress like Parisian / French women

Hey everyone! Parisian women are a huge influence on my personal style. They have this knack of looking imperfectly perfect, basic but not so basic, neither overdressed nor underdressed, casual but elegant and that is the balance I always look for in my outfits. Decoding the Parisian style is a challenging task and here's what I have come down to from my travels, women watching is my fav thing to do in Paris!, reading fashion magazines and observing my  fellow french bloggers and friends.

1) the colours-  the French women would 8/10 times choose neutrals like black, grey, white, nude and camel. The other colors they love are shades of blue like navy, pale blue, chambray and true red. 
2) patterns-  Breton stripes and polka dots are classic French staples.
3) heels- on an everyday women in Paris are mostly in flats maybe to manage the cobblestone streets! but seriously aren't flats more comfortable when you are rushing to work or running errands and that comfort lends itself to the look making it much more effortless. If you really love heels go for the kitten heel. The stilettos are kept for special occasions or fashion weeks!!!!
4) do not over accessorise- if you want to wear a statement piece like a stylish beret or a striking bucket bag or a stunning necklace leave other accessories or keep them bare minimum so it speaks.  Never do the mistake of overloading your outfit with too many pieces and always remember what Coco Chanel once said- before you leave the house you should look in the mirror and remove one item. 
5) silhouettes are very crucial to getting the Parisian dress code right. Nothing too form fitting or structured or polished it's about fabrics and silhouettes that enhance the shape of the wearer in the most effortless way. Choosing midis over minis and cigarette pants over skinnies will give you clues.
6) the uniform on the streets of Paris- white button down shirt paired with black pencil skirt or cigarette pant under a fitted blazer or trench worn with flats or block heels. Scarfs are also huge in France, In no other country i have noticed them in this glory, French women will mostly wear a neutral outfit with a pattern scarf  and wear equally with dresses as well as pants.
7) do not jump on trends -  Parisian women stay true to their own personal style before anything. They believe in wearing the clothes and not the clothes wearing them so they are in no rush to jump on every trend that comes out of the runway or deliberate statement making. So see which trend suits your personal style and the existing pieces in your wardrobe and then pick instead of just wanting to be rocking all the trends the moment they hit the street and when wearing trends pair them with classics for a relaxed vibe. For e.g if you are choosing to wear cropped frayed pants wear it with a white shirt or ballet flats. 
8) Try some masculine pieces- like boyfriend jeans or a masculine pant suit or boyish shoes but with a feminine flare. Todays outfit is a good example of doing so, i am wearing a rather masculine lace up shoe, Oxfords, with my feminine outfit of polka dots and midi skirt.
9) hair plays a major role in the Parisian look, it's never too perfectly done, not messy but also not too neat, be it the French twist, or the French braid or the French roll. In fact the streets are filled with woke up like this hair aka the bedhead.
10) red lips- go for it on the daily

So in short if I may summarise it's like walking on a thin line which is only perfected by practice.

I wanted my Parisian look to be Parisian but not blue or black and since red is also one of the loved colors of Parisian women I went for this beautiful red midi skirt from vesper, there are so many ways i can style this skirt so u will definitely see it a lot here, Vesper does a lot of classic but trendy pieces, their online shop delivers worldwide and I just found out their exclusive collection is also available on ASOS and there are some gorgeous pastel pieces. 
I could have gone for stripes as well but I chose polka dots because I wanted to wear these edgy shoes and polka dots are sweeter than stripes so the edginess is balanced with the sweetness!! I did my hair in a loose Ponytail, chose the classic Daniel wellington watch as the only accessory and tucked my shirt casually for all the effortless Parisian vibes.




This look can be easily recreated with the above pieces, I have also linked some skirts and shoe options with polka dots in case u love them. 

I have 2 coupon codes for you 1) Daniel wellington 15% dis with the code 'CHICHI' till 15 august 2) The peach box 15% dis with the code 'THESTYLETUNE' till 31 july. They both deliver free worldwide.

step by step messy braided bun half up do tutorial with irresistible me


Hey everyone

Today I have my first hair post up for you guys with Irresistible me.  It's a messy braided bun half up do, very effortless can be worn at the beach or a day out and perfect for summer. 

I did a full review on irresistible me 8 in 1 hair curling wand about a month ago and since then I have had so much fun trying out the different wands and making different hair styles, seriously you guys this curling set is all you would ever need. It does the job so well and my fav bit, it makes your hair look shinier and healthy. 



CURLED HAIRSTYLE


hair curler- irresistible me (20% discount save 40$), heat protectant- loreal, hair spray- loreal  hair brush-conair, hair styling oil-bumble and bumble, hair clip-scunci

Messy braided bun half up do

Tools

Comb for brushing 

2 Hair sectioning clip or hair clips to hold hair

Heat protectant spray

hair hold spray

3 hair elastics 


2-3 bobby pins


Hair- need not be freshly washed as the hair style is a bit messy and effortless.

Steps



1) brush your hair and make sure there are no tangles

2) divide hair in two equal parts horizontally and secure the top part with your sectioning clip.

BRUNETTE HAIR STYLE




3)  spray the lower part with heat protectant.

4) take around one inch section of hair from the lower part and curl with your 25mm irresistibleme hair wand. See how gorgeous the curls are and it did not take me more than 10 mins to curl the entire part, and mind you that is for my long hair.

SUMMER HAIRSTYLE

CURLED HAIR

 5) loosen the curls a bit and then secure the curled portion with a clutch or section clip and bring it to one side.

6) now open the top part of the hair and divide into three equal sections left, middle and right.

7) make a fishtail braid of the middle section  ( fishtail braid- divide the section into two, take small piece of hair from the outer edge of the left section and add it to the right and then a small piece from the outer edge of the right section and add it to the left, keep on repeating this till the end of the hair and then secure it with a hair elastic.)

8) make Dutch braid of the left and right sections ( Dutch braid- divide the section into three equal parts and cross the left part under the middle and the right part under the middle, it's just how u do a normal three strand braid, but instead of crossing the sections over the middle we cross them under, keep on repeating till the end and then secure with a hair tie.)

EASY FISHTAIL BRAID

EASY DUTCH BRAID

 9) so you will have the bottom part of your hair curled and the top part braided into three braids, left and right in Dutch braids and the middle in a fishtail.
