Presenting Alexandria Rose

I have been very busy lately trying to create something so wonderful so beautiful and that I just couldn’t wait for all

of you to see. I am starting up a small clothing company that in time will be filled with cashmere joys ! Its in early stages , but I can not wait to do something that I have dreamed of for so long and I know this is the first of many more to come.

So check it out and I would love to here some feed back

If It Isn’t cashmere

For when you are not wearing Cashmere

For those of you who don’t know, I live in a lovely little place in the world that right now is like living in an over worked oven owned by Martha Stuart. So for myself right now , I only have  a cashmere blanket to keep me cosy while my air con stay at a cool crisp 18 degrees. Needles to say maybe that’s why I haven’t posted in a while. I am so sorry, so deeply sorry that if I had the money everyone would get matching cashmere scarf and glove pack ( in their own colour of choice )

Back to the post shall we, so needles to say while y’all be freezing where ever you are in the world, I have been in search for the prefect summer looks and can I said it very very hard. As, one would assume this weather is not layering weather , it when the one item you are wearing must stand strong ( and not show your sweat marks , its realllly hooooooot) And for sun safe lovely also give you protection. Now , as we all know Fifty Shades of Grey is coming out and I truly love Dakota , maybe its cause we actually look the same and it great. But, I also love the way she dress. One of my favourite looks is what she wore to the Verve Clicquot Polo classi  a while back, I know it old news but the dress is timeless.

She paired a lovely Diane von Furstenberg dress and Jimmy Choo shoes. I must say I really love the hat!  This type of dress can be layer and loved for ever just add a button down to the look to dress it down or keep it as is.

Some of you may be freezing of your little ears whilst you read this, while other baking in nose pilling heat and sunburn. Needless to say, we all need a nice hat. I nice simple all rounder , an investment hat and no it isn’t made out of cashmere. I toss between a cap or a classic felt , until I discovered my new darling. Now I pray Zara makes look a likes. It must be Christmas cause all my dreams have come true , it comes in black , than you Zara. You got my back, you are such a mind reader !

The colour is just something special, so bright , that it will seamlessly fit almost any outfit. It pure perfection and I am in love with this hat, I need 7 of them for each day of the week. I saw this jam crying out my name on net-a-porter , and it has filled my dream even since. Pair , this beautiful creation with denim skins and any classic coat you have from black to brown. I should just like to say , Thank you Madison Michel, for answer my prays and creating an orange hat. Jus next time , can you put C.O.D on it !

 

Confession from the weekend rave

tumblr_nf5nwwWjmn1t1prrio1_400tumblr_nf5nwwWjmn1t1prrio1_400

I like to go out , its fun! I get to drink, I get to mingle , I get to pretend I am French to get free drinks its great ! And most of all I get to dress up! However , this one particular night , I encountered one of the most interesting remarks from a drunken person. It was interesting to say the least.

Let me paint a picture, I was wearing my trusty fun as tweed hot pants from forever 21. They are amazing , I love hot pants, comfortable and they make your legs look amazing. Matched with a loose Zara stripped cotton tank and leather patterned oxfords, I was comfortable and personal thought I looked amazing, for a number of reason. Firstly, I looks pretty good just the right balance of riskaay, flirty and polished, just the right amount of spark to get me a free drink . I wasn’t dressed slutty, the outfit was a typical Claire outfit and from fellow friends , I received many complements on how I was nicely dressed. And secondly, I knew if I was a unique outfit, that was a bandage dress or something tacky that I would attracted decent people, its a none science.

Enter, some random drunken guy. Yes, he was cute. Yes, he was well dressed , I did like his watch , I would wear that.Conversation was okish, going along nicely until he says to me . ” your really hot, you know you would get more guys if you dressed cuter’

Now , let that soak in. My firstly response was , Yes ! I am now a successful man repeller and secondly, what a dick head. But, his comments made me think, does it all come down to the clothes or lack of clothing on my body ,are guys going to more  attracted to me if I wear the same thing as the girl next to me ?  Its seemed that bandage dress and a  life as sheep is the way to win some dick head heart. Now, I know I can’t change some party boys mind, cause to a degree he is very correct. And its sad that to be notified people think they must camouflage into the crowd. I say wear what you want , but first and for most wear it for yourself, never anyone but yourself and trust me you will be surprised by the result

The morning after

Screenshot (248)Screenshot (248)

We all know the feeling the morning after a really good night out, one that you may have over stepped your judgement on what ever it may have been , but ooooh was it worth it ! However no morning after can compare to the Tuesday after cyber Monday. You have had a full on 5 days my friend, starting it of with thanksgiving ,followed by black Friday and then the whole weekend just rolled into buying everything in site, off and online.

Some of us my be buried m physical and mentally, are finger my be swore and we may still be fragile ,that is why you must rest, in your Egyptian  cotton sheets that where 30% offfff ! SCORE ! and rest it all off, maybe Piperlime will miss read your addressed and that shift dress you ordered will never arrive….. we can only dream Now, you may be left with some items that you are thinking ….” why the hell did I get this , I don’t even like purple” or ” what was in my Starbucks pumpkin latte that possessed me to buy these mint ear warmers, I live in Florida ! “. Its time to stop, rethink and evaluate if you actually won anything of value. Just because the lady in the Juicy sweat pants wanted that heavily discounted bad Marc Jacobs look alike bag for her 12 year daughter, doesn’t mean your going to like it. So listen here friends, this is what we are going to do ,

1. Keep all cashmere items , you will always wear them

2. Try everything you brought on , if some thing that may match, play around with things in your wardrobe. Now , if it doesn’t go with anything and its got you thinking, I should buy that cute Zara skirt it will go with it . DON’T ! You are poor now until Grandma gives you a Christmas coupon

3. Make a pile two piles, re gift and EBay . Use each wisely

4.Although  you may have made money on eBay ,do not go shopping until boxing day, give yourself and your credit cards a rest

Thanks giving is over guys, who cares what Uncle Mike was thankful for , he should be thankful for weight watches.

Personal I would just like to say what I am thankful for, and that is Black Friday .WOOH WOOOOH , hear that …..that’s the sound of bargains and the sound of cashmere on special !!!!!! the best kind of sale!  Black Friday , is no know as international treat yo self day, as 95% of us buying things will be for ourselves. Cause let’s be honesty , the next month ain’t going to be all that merry.

Firstly, I would like to start with Zara and there 30% of store wide ! Thank you Zara. For I need everything at your store more than I ever wanted before! Such as ever time in your shoe section. I have found footwear very easy to justify , as you actually need them, cause no one wants to see your ugly ass feet. And beside , guys as the Christmas carol states ” Baby , its cold outside” , you need a new coat and boots….. just saying

Omg is that Burberry …..well it could be from a distance in a shown Strom , thanks Zara.

Jenna Lyons is my spirit animal

hbz-jenna-lyons-promo hbz-jenna-lyons-promo

We all know my love for J Crew, but however the one thing greater then that love , is my praise to my leader Jenna Lyons. The one , the only, the all mighty and amazing Jenna Lyons. I have had a ostrich  feathers black mini in my wardrobe for some time now. Fun fact , I scored it on eBay for $60 ! Bless eBay’s beautiful soul. But, there is something next level with the creation that Ms Lyons has created. With the relaxed feel of a tee shirt , pure geniuses ( and we expect nothing better from the women herself). Can I be the first to say , I have never been the girl to dream of a her wedding day , although I do enjoy “Say yes to the dress “, I truly believe I would personal great Jena Lyons with rage and demand that she swaps my wedding dress with her simplistic look. What I would give for a skirt, just to hang it from my door and gaze at it , the softness of feathers , especially ostrich can never be beaten. And that what’s Ms Lyons has shown in her outfit , she doesn’t pair the skirt with anything harsh, no just a simple white shirt and a fur for wartime ( I bet its vintage , just saying).

             960x540

This inspiration , has lead me to gather one of my greatest eBay finds and reinvent it in totally unique looks and ways. Although , my feather shirt may not be white and may not be long, I know we can build many wonderful times together. Keep waiting for these adventures tales to see what wild concoctions spin from my mind.

Black Friday count down

Oh sale season I love you deeply , you are my everything. I dream about this week, I cross the days off my Calendar , maybe next year I will make my own chocolate count down calendar like the ones for Christmas. But , that one day a year ( well its grown from that into like 3 days) is near. I can smell the samples , I can hear people every where training for this day , memorizes there sizes in year brand , cut and style. Coupons fill the every person draw , ready for this day. Black Friday !

As, my normal pre black Friday goes, I scroll my favourite places , composing a list of all the things I will die without, marginally need and will become an impulse buy ( we must avoid these items). On top of my list of things that will improve my life by 5 % is these bad boys. Superga sneakers, not just any old sneaker , these amazing to die for ( I will go hunger games to get theses ) are cow hid / pony fur sneakers.I just need them , with cigarette jeans and a cashmere sweater and I am set for the happy season, cause with these on my feet I can take the world. Now I tell I need these as my friends, so don’t go buying them all on me now that’s just plan , rude. Now everyone go practice there reflects for the big day !
