It's been great getting back into this blogging malarkey and I'm finding my love for fashion all over again. One of the things I most love is finding bloggers who have a quirky edge in terms of their style and dress sense. Like everything, some of the fashion blogs (I thought this about the fashion week street style shots as well) can tend to start looking a little bit 'samey' and prescriptive.
I have fairly eclectic tastes as to who I follow and these include bloggers of all ages, sizes and from all over the world. Moving into my forties I feel I can take a bit more of a back seat and appreciate the trendy younger 'things', without totally having to jump on the trend bandwagon. Been there done that, nowadays I am happy to stick with what I know suits me and what I can afford.
I do however get sucked in with the accessories and I think these are always a great way to 'lift' an outfit, introduce colour and seasonality, as well as sense of individualism. Hats, scarves, sunglasses, bags, jewellery I love them all. Anyway this leads me to a fab new (at least new to me!) sunglasses brand discovery called Sheriff and Cherry over at Sunglasses Shop
If you love sunglasses and haven't heard of Sunglasses Shop I can thoroughly recommend them.
The service is super quick, in most cases your sunnies are with you the next day. I've bought a lovely pair of pink and black Chanel, flower embossed sunglasses in the past, as well some Burberry. I also fell horribly into one of the Chloe, 'trend led' traps in the past and as my family fell about laughing at my impression of The Fly, it was no probs to send them back and swap for a different pair.
I've said it before and I'll say it again my ultimate style crush is Michelle Williams. As she also has short hair, I can get a pretty good idea of what is going to suit my face shape, by doing a bit of paparazzi stalking and a having a nose at what she is wearing. Anyways she looks great in her Raybans, but they are of course everywhere and my search for something different has led me to the Sheriff and Cherry brand.
I've been doing my research, looks like they are a Croatian brand, they are also on Instagram if that is your cup of tea, and they have also recently launched a Liberty inspired range, exclusive to the store here.
Are you always to be found with a pair of sunglasses sunshine or not? What brands do you like and do you stick to a classic shape or update each season?
