BLOW Hair Salons’ Roisin has guest blogged for US!
We were approached by our now favourite hair salon, BLOW to supply clothes for a photo shoot they were doing for their new Party Hair brand & we immediately jumped at the chance!
If you havent heard of BLOW – then you need to look it up … like NOW! Its the most awesome hair salon in Glasgow which basically invented GLITTER ROOTS – remember them? BLOW is not just a hair salon – its a lifestyle! You go in and get served milkshakes, popcorn and sweeties & you can get your hair coloured literally any colour under the sun! It has a HUGE floral peace sign on the wall too! Basically looks like our dreams!
And when BLOWs’ Roisin offered to guest blog for us – again we jumped at the opportunity.
Roisin AKA “Fashion Mermaid” its over to you…..
When Spoiled Brat recently let us raid their candy shop of a clothing warehouse to style our upcoming hair product brand Party Hair (@partyhairuk) we were uncontainable with excitement! The look we wanted was to draw inspiration from playful and quirky Japanese street style with nods to purikura sticker booths and a sugary sweet colour palette to complement our branding.
Spoiled Brat allowed me do a guest blog to rave about our favourite pieces and stylist picks used so you too shop the cutest looks from the site SS17.
First up is this naughty yet oh so nice Local Heroes number. A young brand who have went from small indie label to cult clothing status in two years with a brand philosophy that focuses on having lots of fun in life and making dreams come true (one we can get behind!). With pastels finally back in for SS17 this cheeky little number is one to grab from the Spoiled Brat website before it’s gone for good. Style it up over beach wear or rock the look as a statement piece with jeans and converse.
The Iron Fist My Little Pony shirt is one of the staple pieces in my own wardrobe and it has defiantly been a talking point ever since. Being born in the 1980s I was a massive fan of the series I had everything from a lunch box to the figurines. The fabric is also beautiful and for lazy gals like me easy to care for! This oversized shirt goes perfect under dungarees and with jeans. For a cute festival look team with cute boots and shorts for look that is going to rack up the compliments. Spoiled Brat also have an amazing beach bag of this if you can’t get enough of MLP!
Rounding up another cute pony themed look is the cat suit from Alice Vandy. Alice Vandy’s collection merges together super cute nostalgia and streetwear. We styled our model with space buns whilst rocking this playsuit for an adorable festival look that was out of this world. Spoiled Brat also stock the dress version of this if you feel like showing off your pins! Yeahaa!
Next up a sure hit for the summer was this beautiful white mesh dress from Local Heroes. The super light material is perfect for layering up over a bikini for lazy days eating ice cream by the pool or getting rolled up for a beach bag. The emoji like patches on this one are ridiculously cute especially the peach and the self-love mantra’s!
Big love to the S.B team for sorting out with clothes for the shoot and you can view the shoot and soon by following us at @partyhairuk!
No matter wherever you’re headed in the summer Spoiled Brat have your back for the cutest hand-picked essentials around!
The Cropped Top : This Years Essential Wardrobe Item
Have you worked out how to wear a crop top yet?
Have you plucked up the courage to wear a cropped top yet?
The cropped style has been around for quite a few seasons past now, but there are still some who understandably feel nervous about wearing one & rightly so we say, after all we dont all have perfectly toned tummies. But fear not, believe us when we say that just because the top is short, it doesn’t have to mean you need a six pack as an essential pre-requisite for styling out this now-staple wardrobe addition. Have you not heard of LAYERING? Well the cropped top is perfect to dabble in this trend – layer over maxi dresses, vest tops, sweaters – ANYTHING!
The crop top may still look to you like an item from the 90s Spice Girls era, but believe us, when we say that much like leggings, it will become your go to wardrobe item. It’s all about finding your comfort, and your perfect look with the crop top in order to fully grasp the flexibility and style credentials of wearing a crop top which you have unlimited possibilities with – from layering under a pair of native rose dungarees with your favourite liquor n poker bomber thrown over the top, or team with an funky minkpink maxi skirt and heels for an evening look. To prove our point, we’ve styled one key crop top SEVEN ways for 7 completely different events. We actually could have gone on with more and more looks – but didnt want to bore you!
