5 ways to wear a denim jacket

April 15, 2015

Our new style crush for 2015 is the denim jacket.  Mine is still in the wardrobe from its last outing in c.2004 but I’m determined to give it a style refresh and make it a summer staple.  Put away the leather bike jacket…denim is back in town.

Style 1: City Cool

Inspirations: Miranda Kerr

Untitled design-9

Miranda Kerr always looks great, but we particularly love this outfit.  Pair a blue wash denim jacket with a soft and floaty mini skirt and high collared shirt.  Perfect for transitioning from spring to summer.

 Style 2: The Custom Crop 

 Inspiration: Selena Gomez

Untitled design-10

This is a great way to refresh an older or vintage style denim jacket…you have to be brave but if you’re willing, get the scissors out and create a cropped jacket.  We love the exposed fraying along the bottom edge and collar – you can emphasise this by using wire brush along the edges for extra impact.  Team with high waisted jeans or trousers and killer heels.

Style 3: The Maxi Combo

Style Inspiration: Jessica Alba

Untitled design-11

For a relaxed look, floaty maxi dresses or skirts work really well with a structured denim jacket.  We love how Jessica has used differing shades of blue in her outfit, adding an orange colour pop with her nail varnish.  Try buttoning up the jacket to create more of a shirt effect; this gives your outfit a fresh twist. See here for other ideas on how to style your maxi dress.

Perfect for summer. Go for a lighter shade of denim for a more casual look but team with a structured pencil skirt and cami-top to get a classic look.

Style 5: 80s vibe

Inspiration: January Jones

Untitled design-12

January Jones can do nothing wrong in our eyes.  Go for a less structured and longer denim jacket like this one and pair with skinny trousers or leggings.  Finish with a delicate heel and carry bag.  We also love for hair in this image; a relaxed bob. She is the epitome of style.  If you are going to festivals this year, try this style of jacket with tailored shorts and a loose shirt for a relaxed look.

Hairstyles for a high neck wedding dress

Hairstyles for a high neck wedding dress

We’re loving this year’s trend for high neck wedding dresses – from flattering slash neck styles to high funnel neck styles. This can be a tricky style to master, especially if you have a veil and hairpiece to juggle too. We’ve put together a few little hints and ideas for hairstyles for a high neck wedding dress to help you style yours to perfection!

The Funnel Neck

This victorian inspired neckline combines elegance and style with a subtle statement look. Just think Grace Kelly! This higher neckline calls for a hairstyle that’s mainly up to give the full dramatic effect. Try to keep the up-do soft to avoid an overly harsh look – try curling and pinning it up to look effortless, or a low natural bun.

Slash and Illusion Necklines

These flattering necklines suits most people, and are quite easy ones to style your hair around. Anything will go with these, but we like to keep the hair quite simple and classic – go for a failsafe half up half down or for something a little different but on-trend for 2015 try a low ponytail as seen at Jenny Packham. Make sure if you go for this look that the ponytail doesn’t look too ‘done’ – keep the hair as natural as possible for an effortless look. Team with a pair of statement earrings to finish.

High neck with detailing

Dresses with detailing like ruffles or heavy embellishment near the neckline are best suited to an up-do which will both show off the detail and ensure that your hair doesn’t tangle or get caught in any of the beading! For dresses like these, try a high bun or top knot to really make sure your hair stays out of the way.

For ladies daring to be different, a unique ultra-modern neckline such as these calls for a sleek and simple hairstyle. Or channel Solange and go for big and natural!

April Fashion Inspirations

April 1, 2015

Another page has turned on the calendar – and all of a sudden April is here. Whilst March was great…April heralds easter eggs, lighter evenings and dare we suggest it…but the potential for a beer garden to two!

We thought we would share some of our favourite inspirations from April and how they have feature in our SS15 collection.


We can’t think of many things that are more uplifting than the vivid pink and white blossoms that can be seen this time of year.  Pair bold pinks and blues with whites and creams to create a fresh colour palette that is perfect for this time of year.  Blue statement pieces such as bags or shoes look great with skinny white jeans or midi skirts and a soft knit jumper.

Screen Shot 2015-04-01 at 10.17.59

Vintage Styler Earrings, Vintage Styler Clutch Bag, Topshop Nail Varnish

If you want to give your house a mini makeover for Spring, introduce these colours through bed linen and cushions.


We love two-tone pearlescent colours at VS.  Freshwater pearls are the best way to achieve this natural effect (see our pearl collection), but you don’t have to use pearls, it can also be achieved through the use of sequins, crystals and acrylics.   For bridal fashions, mix with golds or greys to create a soft look or for a more statement style pair with purples and greens.

What are the best long lasting foundations?

If you’re after a new long lasting liquid foundation that will withstand even the warmest of summer days, we’ve selected the ultimate top 5 bases that stand the test of time! Perfect to transition from office to bar, for a long day at the races or a full day and night wedding reception, these picks of the longest lasting foundations will see you through.

1. Estée Lauder Double Wear £29.50 at

Screenshot 2015-03-30 11.56.06

Many girls’ makeup bag essential, the old faithful double wear is a go-to foundation when a lasting, matte finish is needed! With good, buildable coverage, Estée Lauder’s double wear foundation lasts for hours and doesn’t end up with that shiny look even after a full day, so no need to squeeze the compact powder into your clutch!

2. Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation £7.99 at

Screenshot 2015-03-30 11.56.42

A budget friendly, lasting foundation by Rimmel. Considering it’s only £7.99 and available at most pharmacies, this foundation is pretty amazing! With a choice of 7 colours, this foundation applies evenly and doesn’t leave you with that caked feel that many lower priced foundations tend to do. And most importantly, it really does last.

3. Mac Pro Long-Wear Foundation SPF15 £25 at

Screenshot 2015-03-30 11.57.26

This foundation lasts an unbelievably long time! Build it up while applying to ensure that it is nicely blended and you have the coverage level you want, but once it’s on it stays put. With full, matte coverage the Pro Long-Wear foundation is ideal for oily skin when only a lasting finish will do. Wear with the long-wear concealer for maximum lasting effect.

4. Armani Lasting Silk Foundation £36.50 at

Screenshot 2015-03-30 13.16.31

A little bit of a splurge, this foundation probably isn’t an everyday one for most people! But for special occasions like a day at the races or a wedding, it’s perfect. Ultra long lasting with a beautiful texture that goes on smoothly and leaves a semi-matte, luminous finish. Armani foundations always come in a gorgeous array of colours that match perfectly to your skin tone.

5. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation £31 at

Screenshot 2015-03-30 11.58.00

A long last foundation that also hydrates!? This beautiful medium to full coverage foundation offers a lightweight feel combined with a 12 hour lasting finish and protective SPF15. Available in a huge selection of colours so you can find your perfect shade, this foundation has won an array of beauty awards. The perfect foundation if you love a sheer finish combined with a long lasting formula, and especially good if your skin is on the drier side.

Can i wear a maxi dress to a wedding? 6 long dresses that are wedding guest appropriate!

Can I wear a maxi dress to a wedding?

It’s that time of year again – wedding season! If, like me, you have quite a few weddings to attend this year as well as a couple of days at the races – the outfit options become a bit limited and it’s tempting to opt for a stylish maxi for at least one of them! We’ve often discussed wedding guest attire ‘etiquette’ at VS HQ, is it ok to wear white to a wedding, is it ok to wear black, how short is too short….you get the idea. So, can you wear a maxi? A lot of very traditional opinions say that only the bride should wear a long dress – but we’re not sure we agree. Brides over recent years are not always guaranteed to wear a long dress after all.

The verdict?

We say it’s totally appropriate! A few hints however – try to steer clear of white or cream or any shade you would consider to be bridal. Avoid heavy sparkles or lace, and make sure the maxi isn’t one you’d wear on a beach holiday. Personally, I would also avoid anything that’s plain and all one colour (colour block is fine) as you run the risk of looking like you might be a bridesmaid. Patterns tend to be a bit safer and avoid this.

Long sleeved maxi’s also gain extra plus points if you’re off to a wedding in cooler months and the legs aren’t quite summer-ready just yet.

Tip: In terms of choosing a colour for your dress, take your lead from the save the date or invitation colour scheme and the likelihood is that if you avoid those colours, you won’t end up matching the bridesmaids. 

Here are our picks of our 6 favourite maxi’s that are perfect for a 2015 wedding guest

What to wear to the Grand National

March 19, 2015

What to wear to the Grand National

For me, the way fashion at the Grand National is portrayed by the press is a bit of a bugbear. For many Liverpool ladies, the National is THE perfect excuse to get dressed up. You have to hand it to them, girls attending the Grand National really love to dress up, make an effort and have a good time and will spend a good few weeks if not months planning their perfect outfit.

Being from Merseyside myself, this is something that’s quite close to my heart, and I can’t stand to see the press the following day focussing on the “fashion faux pas” of the day, and the girls who have spent so long getting ready (and fair play to them, have managed to stay standing in 8″ heels all day long) are made fun of in the papers and pictured shoe-less, drinking from a plastic glass and laughing sat on the kirb at the end of the day.

Every race meeting has it’s not-so-good fashion moments, but Liverpool girls get the brunt of it after the National. I know that each of these ladies will have felt so special getting dressed up for the occasion.

This post is intended as a bit of inspiration for what to wear to the Grand National this year – I’m a big believer in wearing what you’re comfortable in and would never want to change the National for what it is already – this is just my own personal style picks!

I love a midi with a fine knit. It’s classy, usually weather-appropriate, and timeless.

Try a full 50′s style skirt, it’ll ensure a flattering fit and perfect length. A fitted sweater is a classy cover-up to compliment the skirt which won’t make you look too over-dressed and will ensure warmth on the day – being either of the first 2 weeks in April, the weather at the National isn’t ever scorching even if it is sunny. A more structured midi skirt looks great with a pretty sleeveless blouse or loose tee, plus no torrential rain and wind will be whipping this baby up over your head – the comfy knickers are safe! Finish with a pair of simple court shoes for a timeless look. For taller ladies, ballet pumps or pretty embellished flats will also look fab with this style.

A pencil shape is perfect. Elegant and demure, you can’t really go wrong with this look.

I personally love this look although it’s not something that I tend to wear that often – I have to keep pencil shapes and tighter fitting styles for those rare occasions where I’m not going to be eating too much otherwise I feel like I need to un-zip! The races is the perfect time to go for it. Go for a pretty pattern to make sure the look is more occasion than office, team with a box clutch and classic courts or sandals if the weather permits. Cover up with a fitted blazer or don’t be afraid to wear a light weight coat if it’s a grey day.

The faithful jumpsuit! Super comfortable and stylish at the same time – what’s not to love.

Having only just discovered that I can pull off a jumpsuit being 5’3″, I have to admit I’m a bit obsessed. They’re perfect for a day at the races, especially one that isn’t overly formal or strapless. Showing just the right amount of flesh to still be classy, a jumpsuit like this one teamed with simple strappies and a wide brimmed hat also gives a nod to the 70′s trend this season.

A bit about hair and makeup…

During my years as a hair and makeup artist, I have definitely learnt a few things. For hair, effortless and something that’s not too ‘done’ is usually the best route to go down for an occasion like the races – whether that’s an up-do or down style. Hair pinned out of the way means if the weather’s bad then you don’t need to worry (too much anyway!) and natural hair left loose is low maintenance and classic. We’re loving a ponytail at the moment too, perfect for this season and the ultimate low-maintenance style. If it’s good enough for Cara….

Makeup for the races needs to be lasting – it’s a long day that usually ends up leading into a night out too! I love a matte look and swear by my Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation to guarantee I still have my face on at the end of the night, or for one that’s more photo-friendly (ie no SPF) try Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation. It’s beautiful. (Check out our full review of the best long lasting foundations here) If you’re not a big makeup wearer, and fancy a bit of a makeover for the day, I’d recommend you try Peaches and Cream in Liverpool!

The hat/fascinator debate

We’re a bit split in the office on this one. We love a vintage style pillbox hat, obviously. Fascinators are a bit more of a controversial one for us though. The more hat-like the better in my opinion, and one that contrasts your outfit rather than matches entirely. I did once wear a full brimmed woven hat to one rainy National day for a more casual hat style, plus it really did save a lot of messing with an umbrella when nipping in and out of the stands! Remember that Aintree don’t request for ladies to wear hats unlike Ascot, so don’t worry if you don’t fancy wearing one at all.

Final thought…

The races are a day-time occasion, so personally I try to keep that in mind and wear something that I would also consider appropriate for a wedding or for a lunch in a dressy restaurant.

I’ll leave you with last year’s winner of Best Dressed Lady at Aintree, Becky Knightingale. Love the pastels!

Would You Get Married On Friday 13th?

March 12, 2015

Today is the second of three Friday 13th to contend with in 2015.  Does that mean we have to hide away at home, avoid black cats and ladders or are we safe to venture out or even, heaven forbid, hold one of the most important days of our lives: our wedding day?

Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 18.56.21

The fear of Friday 13th is well embedded into our daily lives, many people won’t fly on Friday 13th, 80% of skyscrapers have apparently missed out the 13th floor and some hospitals don’t even have a ward 13.  But is our fear of Friday 13th justified?

Well, whilst researching for this blog, one thing became clear…there is no clear single reason why we should be scared of Friday 13th!! Some people relate it back to Christianity, others to the Egyptians and to the French monarchy.  As time has passed the superstitions and traditions have become more embedded and more elaborate; even Hollywood has jumped in with blockbuster movies.

Here’s the key question…if your ideal wedding venue could only offer you availability and a 50% discount for Friday 13th or postpone for say another year and pay full price, would you decline or accept?  We are really intrigued by your answer.  When discussing this in the office earlier, we were split…

I said go for it and make your own luck!  I mean, how scary can a black cat be?! Just heavens sake, don’t spill any salt or drop your compact mirror.

March Inspirations

March 1, 2015

March is here!  Which means that spring must be somewhere very close.  To celebrate the arrival of daffodils, Mothers Day and the relegation of the winter coat to the wardrobe, we thought we’d share some of our March inspirations and how they have impacted on our Spring/ Summer 15 collection.


Definitely one of the first signs that winter is coming to an end.  The delicate dropped head flower scattered amongst the grass or forest is one of the best sights in March.  Our freshwater pearl drop earrings reflect the classic and understated elegance of the snow drop; perfect for a wedding.  Pair with the Ginny clutch bag and mix with bold pinks and purples for a modern way to wear pearls.

Gold is making a big appearance in SS15, especially in bridal fashion.  We love all types of gold whether it be blush, metallic or matte.  Try mixing different materials or textures of golds like our Art Deco shell bag to create a statement look.  If you are getting married and want to incorporate gold why not add fun touches such as these doughnuts…who else will have their food coordinating with the jewellery!


Screen Shot 2015-02-28 at 16.16.42

Probably the biggest inspiration for our SS15 collection.  We just love the way blush and rose colours create an instantly soft and romantic look whilst still being modern and youthful.  Our new collection of sterling silver rings come with an 18ct rose gold option including the Erin and Mirabel rings pictured above.
