Jeans dress and the power of accessorizing

Jeans dress SportmaxThis jeans dress is by Sportmax and I bought it at full price (ouch). I fell in love with it even though jeans blue near my face is on the negative side of my “colour card”. So far it promises to be worth every penny. I will show you in this post two ways how I styled it, but there are more possibilities (for another post). The difference in style is achieved purely by changing the accessories: shoes, belt, bag and necklace. View Post

Sense Corbata… / no tie…. a black jacket and pencil skirt for Josep-Maria

Black jacket with black and white pencil skirt 5Our blogger friend Josep-Maria from Catalunya has ended his blog Sense Corbata…/ No tie…. where he featured many of us in his weekly round-up of stylish women. Which is why many of us pay tribute to him with a special post, dressed in black.https://www.nofearoffashion.com/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/wordpress/img/trans.gif View Post

My grey boyfriend jacket styled by The Style Confessions

Grey boyfriend jacket a la Style Confessions 1

As many of you know, this grey boyfriend jacket is a problem for me, because of the colour and the shape.
I have shown you many outfits with this jacket (part 1, part 2 and part 3). 

Then Heather Fonseca of The Style Confessions offered everybody to style an outfit and draw sketches of the desired outfit. Of course I jumped at this opportunity and asked her for help. She is such a good artist and drew two lovely outfit possibilities. Have a look at her sketches. And then compare them with reality. Didn’t she do a good job? View Post

Blue Kenzo jacket

Blue Kenzo jacket 3

This Kenzo jacket I bought in Paris, courtesy of my husband. (He gets mentioned quite a lot, doesn’t he? Let me know if it starts to irritate you. LOL)
Together with the jacket came the Kenzo top, which you recently saw in my post about a yellow summer jacket.

The jacket is not an easy shape for me as it is not fitted. Some of you might remember the struggle I had with my grey boyfriend jacket (part 1part 2 and part 3). Heather Fonseca of The Style Confessions solved that problem for me. She visualized her advice by fabulous sketches how to wear my grey boyfriend jacket.

So after such struggle you’d think I would be warned and stay away from loose jackets. Not me.
