W by Worth Flares & Gilet

Happy Friday everyone! Today I’m sharing details of my final fashion week look. This season, as I was also working full-time, I only actually did 3 days of shows which I actually loved! I had so much fun choosing the outfits and seeing shows & events with the girls. My favorites were definitely Kate Spade, Sally LaPointe (obsessed!!) and Tommy Hilfiger. For the Tommy show, I wore these black flares & zip gilet from a brand I continue to love more & more – W by Worth. I popped into their showroom to choose some things to wear just before fashion week and as usual, there was so much to choose from. Their team is so so helpful and I’m building up such a nice collection of their pieces. I loved ending the week on a very typical me (black & white) note. Another great fashion week done & dusted!


“A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.”

I must admit, I woke up this morning feeling utterly exhausted. I had plans to go to the gym at 6:30am but I literally could barely open my eyes, not to mention have enough energy to actually move. It seems I can’t seem to survive on the little amount of sleep that I used to. I’ve only been getting 5-6 hours of sleep each night over the past 2 weeks and I think it has finally taken it’s toll and my body’s had enough. There’s a lot of exciting changes happening for me at the moment, so I think my mind is in constant overdrive and as a result, I’m not giving myself any time to actually rest. So my upcoming plan for this weekend literally could not have come at a better time! On Saturday, I’m heading out to Long Island City for a mini Staycation at the Boro Hotel. I absolutely love the aesthetic of this hotel, so I’m very excited to spend part of my weekend there. My laptop and gym gear, of course, will be coming with me (small steps haha) but it will be so nice to have a change of scenery to hopefully give me a little refresh. I’ll be shooting with Christina on Sunday (wait til you see the views) and the girls are also going to come along so I know it will be a fun one! As always, follow along on Snapchat (retroflame1) & Instagram (@retroflame) to see everything.

Have an amazing weekend,

Stylishly Yours,

    I bet the Kate Spade show was amazing – I’ve seen the stills and the pieces in the collection are just beautiful. I’m in love with that pearl beaded shirt too!

    This look is amazing! Love the leather vest contrasting with the airy blouse. The neck tie brings it all together. Amazing look, and this photography is absolutely breathtaking.
