TTYA X LONG TALL SALLY

SEE MY WEARS!

IMG_9293

As you know I’m a tall chick with long legs, so you can imagine my deep joy when I heard that TTYA (Taller Than Your Average) and Long Tall Sally got together and had a baby. TTYA x Long Tall Sally launched today, the capsule collection is pretty major and here I am rocking the jumpsuit, which I hasten to add, is super super long!

SEE MY WEARS!

CYRENA-MONIQUE-ELEMENTS-1

What a week, and what a weekend to top it off! This weekend it’s my lil sis’s birthday and mother’s day!  Not sure about you but for me this means as well as Mommy’s gifts, there’s also gifts for Nanny too, as well as of course Lil My’s birthday pressies – and we’ll all be together celebrating, which will be lovely as me and Nanny live here in Birmingham, and Mom and sissy live in London.

CYRENA-MONIQUE-CLASSICS-1

You’ll remember I told you last month about some of the shiny new things that I’ve treated myself to this year?  As I said, I couldn’t wait to wear my new classic/statement necklace with a tee, jeans, and heels; well here it is! *Jack Nicholson voice*

LONGLINE

SEE MY WEARS!

CYRENA-MONIQUE-GREY-SWEATER-DRESS-1

A couple of outfit posts back I mentioned that I’d had a bit of a mad one on menswear site Open; this is another piece I got, it’s a longline sweatshirt which I ordered in size L so I can wear it as a sweater dress.  Here I took some quick pics of me wearing it with my “Transformers” and Zara heels.

LC:M WEEKEND

SEE MY WEARS!

CYRENA-MONIQUE-LCM-1

So we thought we’d hit up London Collections:Men last weekend, it’s only fitting as I love certain aspects of menswear, and going to fashion shows is fun sometimes, right?

This is one of the outfits I wore during my weekend, turned out to be almost all grey with my menswear inspired Cyrena Monique trousers, my hand-knitted snood and grey trainers.

A BIT OF FLUFF

SEE MY WEARS!

CYRENA MONIQUE CUSTOM NEW BALANCE 1

2015 came in with a bang, I was the star DJ at my Godfather’s NYE bash which gave me the thirst for more DJing shenanigans.  On the hunt for new Serato deck to perfect my craft.  Already been to London and back, bought new fabric to make some stuff to wear during London Collections: Men, and caught up with my friend Q in the process.

It all kicks off this Friday, quite looking forward to it.  I’ve never been to see the mens collections before, it’s about time seeing as I love menswear so much!

Here I’m wearing a sweater from OPEN, a new menswear brand full of basics for cheap, cheap, cheap!  I went a little cray before Christmas and treated myself to a few styles, this navy number is one of them.  I prefer the cut of a mens sweater on me over a women’s one; especially when it comes to a crew neck!

I am also living for my custom New Balance trainers, I wanted them as neutral as possible, and as I’ve already got a sh*t load of black trainers I opted for an all over beige shoe (something they don’t do).

Also got a lil something embroidered on the back!

BLACK SUEDE

SEE MY WEARS!

CYRENA-MONIQUE-BLACK-SUEDE-1

It’s the last day of 2014, I cannot believe it!  I remember last New Year’s Eve like it was last week, does that mean I’m getting old?  Hmm, probably, the NYE before last feels like a couple of months ago!  This year should be one to remember, family, friends, music, good vibes and some drank!

I have a few resolutions in mind, ones that I can stick to, that have come about from lessons learned over the past year.  I’ll put those out on the 1st day of 2015.

For now, let’s look at my black suede outfit – this is the jumpsuit I was trying on when I took my naykee Fashion For Relief pic on instagram.  My friend Philipp practically twisted my arm to buy it, and I’m so glad he did!  It’s a full suede jumpsuit by Haider Ackermann and I bought it for about 13% of the original price – that’s almost free!

The jacket is from New Look, saw it at the Men’s AW14 press day and have been waiting months for it to drop.  It finally did just after I brought long legged Sally home.

HOW TO STAY WARM AND STYLISH DURING WINTER

AUTUMN/WINTER

CYRENA MONIQUE DRESSING FOR WINTER

For some, the winter can seem like a fashion no-go zone as they struggle to keep warm against icy winds and dipping temperatures. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The key to looking good in the less balmy months of the year is to choose clothes which will keep the wearer snug and toasty without piling on the bulk. Luckily, there is a huge range of high performance apparel available which does just this – and which does it with oodles of sartorial flair.
