STYLE VS FASHION CHPT 1

OzzyBOOM! A for effort!.....you did well m'dear...how many minutes did it take to upload a picture???...ha!! I KEED I KEED!...yes i love to crack on nija internet...Anywayz!! 4give me blogspot for my err, its been a week and some days since my last blog...and these are the reasons why:
  • Working on my first dress...which is done!(first time ive used more than a day to finish a dress yay!!)
  • My wonderful cousin and aunt leaving for england and Nigeria respectively:(
  • And lastly and most importantly having ABSolutely nothing to blog about :)!

AnywayZ I was on a celeb blog today and apparently Posh SPICE aka Vicky Beckham is reportedly moving to Hollywood...Hmm...that lady gets me thinking about style and fashion...If anyone else is a serial celeb blog addict*blush* they would notice that whenever Mrs beckham's skinny butt is featured she is all decked out in some chic ALL black ensemble ...with that poker "im soo chic, im soo sooo chic" expression on her face (yes i have issues with her lol)...But it just seems so "contrived"...Several of my London based friends Swear she is "THE" Fashion Budha...but i can't see it....undoubtedly she has money to buy nice clothes but really that is all....its easy to be soo chic when you can point at a new trend and have it delivered to you doorstep (damn rich people!)......its just like this new obsession many england girls have with nicole ritche and that scary looking Rachel Zoe.....please we should all take a minute to remember nicole's ROCKY past...


*minute*

Anywayz to answer the question, "Are vicky and nicole stylish?", i say... I think not!....they are into "fashion".....they dress according to new trends and whatever their favourite designer brings out that season...and of cus... whatever their stylist suggests.....they dont inspire, rather they follow....they worship the fashion budha...But it still works for them...so ill just keep talking to a wall.

Rachel Zoe and Nicole Ritchie (they've parted ways now..)

Vicks Beckham

who i believe is stylish amongst the celeb circle is Chloe sevigny and kate moss and formerly Sienna miller ...but i think she has gone WAYYYY overboard right now with her whole stylish personal..sometimes its just plain ugly what THAT lady wears sheesh!...wait hol up! hol up! lol i almost forgot the Queen Bee herself...CARRIE BRADSHAW...Sarah J Parker is aight...but Carrie was KILLAH!!!...patricia her stylist was sick sick sick!...please i have to give the chic hand...abeg SHE DEY!!!..

Chloe.

Kate Moss

Carrie!

I like sooo totalllyy dig the adage, "fashion changes but style lasts forever"....because that is soooo true...i always say trends pass so darn quick!...to prevent throwing away clothes every season be aware of what "works" for you and your body shape....for instance Skinny jeans is abused by some people....i've seen what appears to be skinny jeans looking like damn leggings......if your skinny jeans are so TIGHT that you have a prominent camel toe...please be kind to your neighbours who are unsucessfully trying to avoid looking at your crotch and get a size larger...just because its called skinny jeans doesnt mean it has to cut off the blood circulation in your legs.

Cinch belts are also the sickening trend right now(been in since 04)...I lurrrveee those belts but frankly i cant even wear one again without feeling like a clone...ITS TOO MUCH!...i believe i gave it up when i saw some freshman girl in Philly(school and girl unnamed so Ozzy doesnt get bitch slapped on her first day of school) wear it on a half length dress shirt underneath a pair of suspenders..???????....it was then i knew it had fallen into the wrong hands....please wear it well...on a pretty dress ...a business shirt... a turtle neck sweater.....there are many chic ways to wear it...but please NEVER on a half top...or a frilly club top ..or on top of a corset>??...i mean the purpose of the corset is to cinch...why add another cinch(er)?.....

AnywayZ ill be back with some more style tips...right now i'm off to finish up my second dress! YAY!.

so in order to be stylish, one must be original and/or innovative? tall order. i'm going to have to disagree with your thoughts on VB...but i'll wait until you've said all you have to say on the style vs fashion tip...

oooh, i think kate moss's appeal is beyond the clothes...she has an air that's distinct from what she wears. incidentally, she wears a LOT of black a la VB...

LOVE the blog :)

To me being stylish means dressing according to your own signature style...i.e wearing trendy clothes without looking like FIVE other people...so yes my definition of being stylish means finding a way to make current fashion look original(in a good way lol)...and on the other hand is being "fashionable" which i feel is Vicky Beckham lol and not to worry ALOT of people dont agree with ma views on her...like i said..:)

vicky beckham pre posh bob was "fashion" but now she's more of style. Yes she has money, yes she wears mainly the latest stuff but she's still stylish. No more spaghetti straps, hot pants, thrashy extensions. Kate's appeal is beyond the clothes, it's the everything. Was really disappointed with her this year. She like wore the same leopard jacket, fur and waistcoats all yr round. Now i'll never get tired of....MK Olsen. Nicole Richie is more of style too...she mixes vintage with couture...Paris Hilton is the fashion one.

oh and i love carrie too but when she was a disaster it was often REALLY bad. Charlotte was quite bland but at least she was consistent.

oh yes bleue you have to be both innovative and original. I mean you can still wear "trends" but it depends on HOW you wear it.

i had to come back to mention that the most stylish woman ever is....Carine Roitfeld. Look at her pics on style.com. Nuff said...

Nicole Ritchie "had" Rachel Zoe to help mix her "couture" with her "vintage"...there is absolutely NO WAY that the "car wreck" that was nicola circa 02/03 could do such an "about turn" without the help of her stylist..

And Carine Roitfield is fab!!yay!!
