My personal style rules - Jo Eldin

My personal style rules (I think) Glamour editor’s letter - Jo Eldinjo
Shoes are worth the investment let’s be clear I’m not saying remortgage your house to get the shoes and I love a cheap and cheerful on friends metallic lovely as much as anyone. But the better the quality a happier my poor overworked awkward feet and legs and the longer they last so I guess I am saying I really do try to invest in whatever I Can afford.

Hooray! Jo agrees! shoes are a big thing for us all in the Ali office and it’s nice for someone to agree that quality shoes are essential to life. Good shoes will get you everywhere and will last a lifetime. We’ve even started taking bad quality but good looking wardrobe lusting shoes to our local cobbler to get them made into good shoes.  


I.E my tired and worn down Iron Fist ‘Indecent Obsession’ strawberry brogue flats. They now suit my walking style better and only cost £16 from Droitwich Spa cobbler to get re soled and double heeled. Nothing is better than an eye catching flat which fits like Cinderellas glass slipper.

Fashion and Passion

Fashion is the passion. life is passing us bye and before we know it’s gone. Fashion is timeless ever evolving, fresh and new. Fashion, trends and styles jump from the fresh crisp, glossy page of vogue, glamour and harpers. From top end to high street, luxury to everyday ready to wear essentials. 

Gone are the days where you could kick back and relax with a glass of wine in your slippers to read vogue after a long hard days work. The world is fast and everything is noisy and there is very little change to catch your breath or have a  moments peace.

Fashion weeks and seasons fly by and before you know it another season and fashion LFW show has begun, So much so that now the fashion industry is making it ok and fashionable to wear your winter wardrobe in summer.

The world is going crazy and we’re all on the rollercoaster of life we just can’t and don’t want to get off in fear of loosing touch with the social sphere or life as we know it.

It’s whilst having my haircut in the hairdressers chair I realized life is just too short to miss out on opportunities and things that make life fantastic. It has taken me three weeks to read vogue this month three whole weeks and I’ve still got one hundred pages left to go. I’ve been cramming my down time reading in on the train, in the subway lunch salad queue, making coffee and in the hairdressers chair. My hairdresser Pam at The Hairdressers in Droitwich Spa was very understanding and even positioned the magazine to the right level so I could read and she could cut.

People say you have to take down time, I am not that lucky; my work is my hobby. My hobby is my work and I love everything about it, except inaccurate press quotes and late deliverymen but that is another story. It’s catch 22.

Because of people’s busy lives my job has been created. I’m the worlds answer to the accessory fairy. Making buying accessories online easier and convenient.

I’m finding everything I touch, see and feel inspirational and tangible from my lunch I’m getting ideas. Why? So random. Left right and center ideas that are making it near impossible to do what I need to that day in my job, as each time I have to wade through hundreds of ideas to gain clarity and focus. Many friends and colleagues say not to complain it’s all-good.

I have many a celebrity and celeb stylist to thank though for making my job easier I no longer have to style up an outfit for accessories to go with, as many a celeb stylist is doing it for me ( Many Thanks) to the lovely Alexis Knox for instance who did a wonderful job with the girls from little mix. Perrie and Jade were both spotted last week in Iron Fist shoes and great bang on trend accessories.

The internet is making people’s lives busier and easier and really is here to stay. I think this week has really made me realise that fashion is a wonderful thing to be a part of more than ever and that I’m grateful for all of Ali Mai Boutique’s loyal and lovely customers and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Say what you think, Say what you mean to say.

Say what you think, Say what you mean to say.

 

Whilst reading this seasons summer issue of ‘Wonderland’ magazine featuring the poster girl pop princess that is Taylor Swift I started thinking about wearing what you mean as appose to coming out and say what you mean to say, It’s one of those backwards quotes that once unraveled make complete sense.

 

Embracing the power your clothes have and the effects they have on other people and how they view and think of you, once understood can change your perception of how you dress and how you wear your clothing.

 

Celebrating and embracing loud-mouth-ness is fantastic, saying what you mean is empowering and shows you’re taking control yet sometimes it’s not the place or the time, however subliminally wearing something that gives off confidence, wealth, harmony and peace can help the way you look and feel not only for yourself but for other people too in whatever situation you find yourself in.

 

IDEA! - If you’re inline for a promotion and would like to exude confidence without being goby, wearing a bold statement necklace will get you noticed without wearing a sign saying promote me! Me! ME!

 

Going back to Wonderland (The magazine not the place - we’re not going completely crackers!) Taylor exudes confidence with her wide smile and self confidence, whatever she wears she looks comfortable and content with whatever she may be doing. Being confident in your own skin is one thing, confidence in your clothes is another, but to up your game, make a small change adding in small discreet accessories can make all the difference.

 

Wearing a piece of jewellery can complete an outfit and complete a mood. What you wear and how you wear it can say what you mean to say without words, discreet, controlled, perfect.
