English Countryside

Here at the Fashington Press we are keeping abreast with the weather. What could be cozier than bundling up in a grandma sweater and a cuppa? We team this preppy patterned sweater with this vivid bondage skirt. The suspenders add a quirky preppy touch. The rustic Melton hat with the wild roses, match the theme on the suspenders. With this look you will be all set to stroll down the English countryside!

Amsterdam's Grunge Room

Hope our Halloween special gave you enough inspiration to turn some heads. Do let us know how it went...We take a paradigm shift from wild and surreal to 'Amsterdam Grunge' with this music inspired, attitude loaded shoot. Our model Miss Devon, from the band ' TACO' wears a saucy corset top in red forget-me-not foil. The delicate accessories are styled to contrast her grungy tattoos. For shoes we went for the more preppy oxford lace up boots, a hit with the Amsterdam music scene. Set in a derelict santuary of books, musical instruments and all sorts of junk, this house in the urbs was a great backdrop for our shoot. Thanks to Andre for loaning his baby ;)

Halloween Special :: Edward Scissorhand

If you are looking for haunting, then this is your Halloween look... (scissor) hands down!!! Although we are not sure how Edward manages to dress himself without shredding his clothes, his style inspired this dark and disheveled look. After much deliberation, we opted not to replace our hands with sharp cutlery, however we did accent the shirt and belt with scissor-esque metallics. The one-piece play suit (that everyone buys in the sale, but is seldom worn out) takes centre stage. The metallic shirt adds layers and drama to this outfit. Its goth, mysterious, and romantic... a combination we find is sheargenius!

Let us know what you think or we'll cut off your head!

Halloween Special :: Alice in Wonderland

Halloween calls for a costume series on its own by The Fashington Press. This theatrical 'Alice in Wonderland' look is one of our favorites and so easy to achieve. Layer your look and make it feather light and dreamy...this multi collared dress is perfect for playing around and modeling into your character. Most vintage store will carry voile, lace and white pieces, which are perfect for layering. Play with patterned scarves, drawing attention to your collar and create that avant garde look, which is Alice. Weave your web around just a few colors and keep it simple, the spider adds a nice touch on the knot. Who knows, you might meet your 'Mad Hatter Depp' this Halloween!

O'Ren LBD, Look #4

Its time to transition away from the more classic LBDs into a more edgy look inspired by one of our favorite movies Kill Bill.  We channeled our inner O'Ren (Lucy Liu's character in the film) when putting together this outfit.  Bits of black with evil hints of red on this gorgeous tailor made Cheongasm LBD.  As Halloween is around the corner, we added steel gray pearls and the crow feathered hat to add a touch of haunting and wanting.  If you are looking for a killerlook, then this outfit will certainly fit the bill.
Don't make O'Ren chop your head off to figure out your take on this look...leave some comments :)

Audrey Hepburn LBD, Look #3

Leaning towards 'formal cocktail' any hour of the day, our Audrey LBD and makeover is for those girls who enjoy eating their breakfast at Tiffany's .

Can't go to Tiffany's without the appopriate jewelry!  For this classic yet girly look we chose pearls... loads and loads of pearls- guaranteed to make heads turn!  Even for those petite gals there is something brave and confident about wearing eight layers of pearls around your neck.  Keep the other accessories minimal and simple.  Hair Tip:: don't wash your hair for a few days if you want to recreate this beehive... use tons of hair spray before backcombing forwards and backwards.  This is especially suited for damsels with a sexy fringe like Audrey!

Necklace :: Modern Matters, 2 separate pearl stacks

The Burlesque LBD, Look #2

Burlesque, Burlesque, Burlesque.. lately this has been THE look around town. Here is the big question when strutting the look, 'Is it possible to look sexy yet not tarty?'.

The Fashiongton Press sought to answer this question by styling this popular look with a corset LBD. Remember, sexy is the key here, especially if it is on a night out to lure the right kind of man (or woman). Inspired from Madonna & Winehouse's personalities, we focus on our model-Miss Devon's music personality and charm .
Introduce layers of long pendants and charms making sure to keep them classy. Sometimes it is good to divert the attention from the dress with carefree and fun accessories. Yes, you are allowed to go bonkers with one element (we couldn't resist the feather boa earrings!). With shoes, keep it simple with a hint of naughty. These leopard trim shoes, color block the look drawing attention to your sexy stems. 
Make your eyes shine with this Dita VonTesse'esk eye make up.

Have a helluva weekend!!

The 60's LBD, look #1

Often with fashion we are stuck with decisions and confusion on what to wear and what to leave out. With this 60's Bridget Bardot inspired styling shoot we decided to go with a complete black and white look. This is a great way to style a look  +  rid the dilemma of colorful goof ups. Miss Janet wears a beautiful lace trim dress from The Eclectic Gal Boutique straight out of the 60's and immaculately preserved! Our favorite touch is the mesh silver belt from Modern Matters, which gives this look a more edgy modern feel. Whether it is an evening do or a business meeting, this look demonstrates effortless 'Bardot Parisian Chic'. Janet's windswept hair is built on heavy back combing and tons of hair spray. A wide head sash tidies up the mess perfectly!
