*Fashion Confidence

fashion confidence

I’m no fashionista, never have been, never will be. I lived in nothing but jeans and graphic tees up until about 2 years ago when I did a complete 180 in the fashion department and ditched denim for dresses. I wear what I like and what makes me feel comfortable, and I’ve never really felt like much of it is share worthy but hey, everyone loves a trier…right?

Luxemme is Parisian chic meets Manchester street style, clean cut, on-trend and a realistic price tag. Their aim is to bring sophisticated looks from past, present and future trends straight to your wardrobe.

For me, their offerings are pretty out there. Don’t get me wrong, they’re gorgeous and if I had the confidence to pull off a lacy high neck or a two piece I would..but I’m a tea dress and brogues kinda girl. However, one piece that did catch my eye was this *tailored blazer (£36). Dresses and blazers, easily two of my favourite, most wearable pieces.

Blazer - *Luxemme // Dress - Monsoon (old) // Shoes - New Look // Bag - Kate Spade (similar)


This fitted blazer comes in a pinkish shell colour with 3/4 sleeves and is really thick with a good weight to it, perfect for Autumn and ideal for both daytime and evening wear. In my oh so not so Instagram-worthy OOTD pictures (check those awkward feet out *dies*) I paired it with my Monsoon waterfall dress from about 5 years ago for a night on the town with friends. The nights are cooler but not quite frosty yet and this was ideal to wear over a sleeveless dress without any extra layers. The 3/4 sleeves are perfect for showing off a bracelet or bangle and never end up accidentally dipped in your cosmo.

OK, so my first step into a fashion hasn’t been all that successful, I just can’t do fashion pose (again, look at the feet!) but the whole experience wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be. It’s amazing how confident you can feel when you’re wearing something that makes you want to walk a little taller if only to show it off better. 

Until next time,

  5. Hello Sarah! Nice to meet you! Well done on your fashion post- lovely to see such a pretty outfit- I like what you chose and it suits you very prettily! I felt a complete twit when I first did an outfit post and even now, I stand and grin in a rather cheesy fashion! Ack, well, keeping it real!!
