Tuesday Tip: Shoelace Styling

Here's a quick and easy styling tip I snapped at London Fashion Week! Tying a neck bow with a shoe lace instead of ribbon! Sometimes I think ribbon bows are a bit too dressy, so this is perfect for giving a blouse a bit of cuteness and edginess all at the same time.



Don't you think that's just the coolest styling touch? I love little details like that!

Also, LOVING denim shirts at the moment, they seem to be everywhere! I just bought a short sleeved one in a charity shop so will snap it and share it on here ASAP. I'm actually awaiting the arrival of my brand new camera today... £350 of spontaneity right there... Probably letting the scrimping side down a bit there, but there are some things you need to invest in and after a lot of missed photo opportunities at LFW, I've realised the time to invest in a Canon (the best camera brand, appaz) is NOW!

  2. Ahhh I love it. I'm still yet to find the courage to walk out of the door with my denim shirt and bow tie on. Maybe I'll go through a transition through shoe laces. Love it! Thanks for sharing, Gem.

  3. Ah I do this anyway! And my mothers friend works in a ribbon factory so I always get bags of offcuts, although I have so many I need something else to do with them!

  10. I've been thinking about investing in a Canon for a while after using one at work, I guess I need to start saving! I'm trying to see if I can find a good second hand one a bit cheaper than new, or at least give up some of my monthly clothes budget! x

  14. That is SUCH a good idea! Ribbons are often too dainty and too fimble to stay in place. The shoe lace on the other hand will never untie itself! Hold on while I go and find a pair of old laced boots lying around...

  26. I love this little colour pop, perfect for giving black winter boots new life! I'm never out of my denim shirt at the moment, so comfy but looks lovely too. Looking forward to seeing some snaps with your new camera! I'm thinking about taking the plunge too, it's just so much money to part with! It'll definitely be worth it though
