Inspiration V

"Fashion is what you're offered four times a year by designers. And style is what you choose."
- Lauren Hutton

So this is officially my first outfit post of the year, and keeping true to one of my New Year's resolutions I decided to put my all into the look. Gone are the days of featuring boring outfits; wearing things that don't stand out or inspire. 2018 is all about wearing what I want, when I want and only featuring what I love on my blog. In addition to that, I've started working with some new photographers... so you'll definitely see a lot of change in my content. 

Forget hiding my tired eyes behind sunglasses, because I can't be bothered to put on some mascara, I'm in the process of learning to apply my own make-up and doing it well (yeah I know, by this age I should know... but to be honest I wasn't really interested before), so far I've mastered how to apply false lashes (my little sister Rebecca is quite proud, funnily enough she taught me...oh the shame) soon enough I'll be a pro at contouring too. It's time to look good from head to toe; hair on point, make-up glowing and clothes inspiring. Nothing is going to stop me this year. Last year I was distracted by things and even people (yep, I said it) that didn't matter, but I've let go and I'm moving on; forwards and upwards - for the better.

To kick of the new year I decided to feature an outfit that's inspired by one of my favourite designers;Versace...yes, hence the name of this post. I've long been a big fan, especially of the classic scarf/chain print that has for many years graced the catwalks. Recently I spotted Naomi Campbell in the new collection, black and yellow... my favourite colour combination, enough was enough - I had to get in on the action. When I spotted these Versace inspired trousers on MissPap about a week ago I knew exactly how I'd wear them, chic and sexy (I know I promised more casual and work wear outfits this year, and I'm sticking to my word, they are on the way, but first... let me feature one more sexy luxe look). 

Okay... before I digress again, so I featured these trousers with a black double breasted blazer (I removed the belt it came with) and paired it with a quilted faux leather waist belt, which is also somewhat Versace inspired. To give my look a glam luxe vibe, well a rich Russian woman vibe, as I kept saying, I decided to throw some faux fur in the mix; with a headband that I got from eBay a year or so ago and this amazing black large stole. A  little gold clutch bag  (I picked up from the Mango sale a few days ago) and my favourite perspex heels, added the perfect touch. And of course, in true glam style, I finished off the look with bold red lipstick and a red manicure to match. 

Watch out for more Versace inspired outfits coming soon.
