Happy International Women's Day

IMG_5722

Today is a day to celebrate all things "Woman" and what better way to do so than with a fierce outfit!
To me, being a Woman is about several things - being ladylike, having class, oozing elegance, having strength beyond expectation, being confident in yourself and most importantly being true to who you are! We will often come across "haters" who try to bring us down, but today is a day for all women to re-evaluate our achievements and renew our self worth!
One thing I love to do is use my outfits to portray how I feel, particularly on days like this where we celebrate our womanhood. I like to choose soft feminine fabrics and mix them with something a little stronger to rock them up, exuding how I feel about myself - A lady, but one not to be messed with!
In this case I decided to combine leather and lace!  
I find that sometimes a maxi skirt can make a person look smaller than they are but with just a little hint of leg behind the lace, this one, which I picked up in Miss Selfridge, is perfect to elongate the body and flatter any shape or size. The bodysuit also had a lace detail around the neck, so in total contrast to this delicate style, I added my "Versace for H&M" leather jacket and studded boots from Zara to give the look a little more edge.
The final details came in the shape of a baroque belt, An oversized handbag and a pair of sunglasses to create the strong silhouette of the look!
Remember ladies, fashion does not define us, it reflects us! Be Strong, be unique, be you!
Happy International Women's Day!
