Dress Spy: For Online Fashion Inspiration & 'What will I wear' dramas

If you love Pinterest, then you’ll love Dress Spy. It’s like an online fashion community for fashionistas, friends and family to keep in touch with your latest hunts and bargains. Obsessing over a particular look? Next time instead of keeping it in your online shopping basket for days (everyone does that, it’s normal!), share it with the world and trust me it gives a different sort of satisfaction. 

For me it helps me remember what I was drooling over last week! I have the memory of a lost cat and with online fashion retailers automatically clearing away shopping baskets after a certain time they have been stagnant for, Dress Spy has been invaluable.

It contains a tonne of already uploaded apparel options that you can browse and create moodboards from for different occasions. I quite like the varied and on-trend selection they have in accessories and clothes. I didn't feel for a minute that I couldn't find what I was looking for – it’s all there for you! 

Have a vacation planned soon then get your fashion outfits of the day ready by taking the first step at organising your trip abroad. I know holiday’s are meant to be a time to relax and chill out but there is no harm in getting your online fashion ideas ready in advance, just waiting to be thrown as you land at your holiday destination, especially if you’re a little haywire like me when you travel.

Venetian Beauty

I have a holiday to Italy planned in a few weeks time and I have been so excited about Venice being on the cities I’ll be visiting. It got me thinking what I would wear there on my one day (sadly!) stay. I know it’s still going be warm and sunny in Italy when I’ll be there and I wanted something comfortable, glamorous yet enchanting to match the ethereal landscape. 

What better than a flowy feminine maxi, a crisp looking tote bag, rhinestone studded neutral flats, a leather jacket to tone down the girliness a little and finished off with statement rose gold jewellery. Voila! I strongly feel the sweet yet chic look would flatter the stunning architecture, historical bridges and fairytale like gondolas of Venice so aptly.

Heat it up!

Next up is something inspired by the current UK weather. In one word, it’s a HEATWAVE so dressing hotter than usual is automatically allowed you see. Short shorts and sun dresses are been there done that so for a day out with the girls lounging at the park, I would opt for something sun friendly like this. The cut out sleeves melt my heart and would look uber cute paired with the denim ditsy print skirt. Denim is back in style ladies so hopefully you should a few staples in your wardrobe or check out the mood boards on Dress Spy for revamping your wardrobe ideas. 

Back to the look, the cut out peep toe wedges would be comfortable, airy yet keep up the glamour quotient with those added inches to your stature. Paired with a funky purple and gold contrast bag and some edgy black and gold accessories, I feel the look easily be girly-grunge.

A POP of colour

Finally, the look with just a 'pop' of colour. When in doubt, stick to neutrals and oomph it up with a colourful accessory. It can be anything but I like to rely on bags and bracelets in general. They are chunky, evidently bright and balance out the monotones of the outfit quite well. I would wear this for a dinner with friends, work or college, it's that versatile.
