I have been a fan of Smiley since I was a wee little nipper! Its 90’s nostalgia, fills me with fun and fabulous memories! Yet, since I attended their AW14 press day at Boxpark – London, whilst interning, I was able to see a huge transition, where Smiley’s design concepts, incorporated more modern day trends, in a much more unique manner! The pieces I saw were wearable, fresh, and still managed to elicit the true Smiley stamp, throughout! (Mentioning that I dribbled over almost every garment and accessory, is possibly an understatement)…I was impressed to say the least.
Since then, I have not only included some footage from the press event, within one of my latest vlogs, I decided to style up two of some pretty sassy Smiley caps! The colours of the caps worked perfectly, with the outfit I had in mind for this shoot. Where I live; in Birmingham, England, we are currently in the seasonal transitional period, where by our Summer days are no longer filled with bright and bold block print cocktail dresses, or warm and hazy pimms Summer evenings…no sir! They are beginning to feel more crisp and much, much cooler! Consequently wearing a more monotoned combination, seemed the best way to go, and with the slight pops of colour the caps displayed, the outfit became complete, (in a much more complimentary fashion, than I had originally envisioned)!
Take a look at the images shown below, to see the clothing combo and slight colour flashes. I feel they work great when moving from a Summer wardrobe, into a more Autumnal one. The greatest element to an outfit such as this one, is being able to layer! Plus, with the added awesomeness of a Minion in Chanel on my top, my life is complete :p. I hope you’ve all had a beautiful Summer so far, do let me know what pieces you’ve been putting together for this current season, and what brands you’ll been heading for, for AW14, i’d love to know!
