Alexander McQueen’s Savage Beauty 

Hello everyone. Sorry for the quietness on the blog over the last few weeks! Life has been busy and I’ve just not had the energy or time to focus on the blog. Also the weird thing is that my blog used to be a huge creative outlet for me after I’d come home from my corporate job. But the trust is now that my job is a so much more ‘me’ I feel I get home and don’t as much have the drive to blog. I weirdly feel guilty about this but then I also want to continue to do this as a hobby and not feel it should be a task. Hope you guys can understand. I still update my instagram pretty regularly so if you want to see more of what I am up to then make sure you follow me at @dutchessroz.

Anyway, last night I went to Alexander McQueen’s Savage Beauty exhibition at the V&A and it was so incredible I just wanted to share some sneaky pics. Savage Beauty, is a homage to the late Alexander McQueen and it definitely wasn’t like any other fashion exhibition I’ve ever seen. It was dark and beautiful at the same time and left me feeling amazed and inspired. Not only was he obviously very talented and this garments were beautiful tailored and detailed (gosh the detail..) but I also really I loved seeing a lot of sculptured accessories like shoes, hats and body pieces which made the exhibition a real visual treat.

My new specs!

Hello all. As you know I have recently changed jobs, and one of the benefits of my new job is that I get to wear some pretty awesome specs! I actually do need glasses to be able to see properly (long distance) but I used to be quite lazy in wearing them and instead I just squinted a lot or couldn’t see properly. Why? Well mainly because I just didn’t really like my old glasses. But, now that I work for Bailey Nelson London I am surrounded by cool glasses all the time and I have already got myself 3 new pairs (woops)!

Head to toe white

Wearing a head to toe white outfit is proving to be a huge trend for this spring and summer. White featured heavily on the SS15 catwalks last year and it’s now made its way to the streets and shops. Wearing head to toe white doesn’t need to mean beachwear or casual wear. I think an all-white outfit makes for a fresh, modern and chic look. You can go for delicate, feminine white looks with lace or silk or rock a more modern look with structured and minimalistic pieces.

I recently got a new white jumper from ASOS (link) and since I am loving the white-on-white trend, I decided to add my white namesake ‘The Roz’ statement necklace (as seen here). I am definitely liking this ‘tres chic’ cropped jumper and necklace combination, are you?

Floral Dresses

Spring Flower Power Trend – Floral Dresses

Can you feel it? Spring is on it’s way! I love this time of the year; the days are getting longer and lighter and you can start exploring your spring/summer wardrobe items again. The floral print was a big trend last summer and seems that Flower Power is here to stay. This season’s flowers are big, bold, bright and abstract including vivid and oversized prints. I am totally crushing on floral dresses at the moment, they are so feminine yet bold and fun at the same time. I kind of want all of these dresses…

Oscars 2015 Best & Worst Dressed

Did you catch some of the 2015 Academy Award show on Sunday night? British actor Eddie Redmayne won best actor (for his brilliant portrayal of Stephen Hawking) at this year’s Oscars, while Julianne Moore is named best actress and Birdman best picture. Now I love movies so I always find it very interesting to see who wins what, but what I really love to do most is reviewing all the red carpet gowns to pick my best & worst dressed of the night. Have to say I was a little underwhelmed this year and wasn’t blown away by that many people. But here is a quick breakdown of my best and worst dressed of the 2015 Oscars.

Casual Friday

Hooray it’s Friday! Like many offices we have a casual Friday dress policy, so last week I decided to rock a bit of leather and denim to work. Plus with my burgundy New Balance sneakers, it meant I was very snug and comfortable all day long. I love this kind of casual outfit style, do you?
