I don’t really own a statement necklace and i tend to go for rather plain or simple styles and had never thought much about wearing a staemenbt neklace until i read this article by Imogen Lamport in her “Ïnside Out Style” blog.  It has certainly got me thinking about investing in such items and it may also stimulate some of my readers, especially the transgender and cross dressing ones into giving statement necklaces a go if they haven’t already.

I love leather and leather skirts in particular and do so wish that i had several to choose from.  Sadly i don’t and so when i come across blogs like “9 Ways To Style A Leather Skirt” by Natasha Alexandrou promoting leather skirts and presenting some fabulous looks focussed on leather skirts i have to admit i go green with envy.  In any event, i felt that i had to share the post with my readers and also give some of my thoughts on the items listed.

This bra and brief are crafted from stretch silk satin in a 1930s-inspired floral print trimmed with pretty, scalloped-edged black lace running at the top of the cups and trimming the wide straps. The soft cups are underwired for support and feature subtle darting, with a small silken bow between them. The bra is finished with black zig-zag embroidery.  The brief has a racy row of black lace frills at the rear for a cheeky finish.
The thong is also crafted from stretch silk satin in a 1930s-inspired floral print trimmed with pretty, scalloped-edged black lace edging but has metallic hoops linking the front panel to the tanga-style straps at the hips. It’s finished with a black lace string-style rear.
In a playful, figure-flattering shape to work the boudoir and spice up your outerwear ensembles, this romper suit is also made from stretch silk satin in a 1930s-inspired floral print ut has a boat-style high neckline, floaty, chiffon kimono sleeves cut to the elbow and a matching chiffon belt to cinch in your waist. At the rear, a dramatic cut-out below the shoulders is accented with fixed straps in a crossover effect. Silk-wrapped buttons complete the effect, and a concealed zip fastens at the centre back.
Envelop yourself in luxurious stretch silk satin in this kimono, in in a 1930s-inspired floral print, cut to sit high on the thigh, with a classic wrap front, wide sleeves and matching sash belt.

THE SECRETS TO MIXING PRINTS IN A WARDROBE CAPSULE

One of the reasons that i follow Imogen Lamport’s “Inside Out Style” blog is the frequent tips and advice she presents on a range of topics to do with styling and doing so cost effectively.  One example is her recent post – 

THE SECRETS TO MIXING PRINTS IN A WARDROBE CAPSULE

which gives a lot of sound advice on how to mix and match prints in a capsule wardrobe.  I for one have a limited clothing budget so for me it is important to buy items that will go well with other items that i already have in my wardrobe and for them also to be of colours that suit me.  I am sure i am not alone among trangender women and cross dressers in having made some aweful gaffs in picking out clothing and in being quite in need of advice in that regard.  If you too are in need of some sond advice, please click the above link and read the article and follow the additional links provided by Imogen which will add further to your knowledge.
