#WiseWordsWednesday: Michelle Obama


1st February commences the first day of Black History Month, 28 days where African-American history is celebrated. 

In honour of this, the comeback of #WiseWordsWednesday and due to the current political climate, where we have seen protests such as the global Women’s March and backlash to Trump’s anti-immigration in the US, it was thought to be relevant and romantic to dedicate this post to Michelle Obama. 

The former First Lady of the United States is a role model to millions of people around the world. Whether it be for always speaking for the rights of women, inspiring other people of colour or her gracious fashion sense. 

Nevertheless, the people’s favourite First Lady has announced she will not be running for President in 2020. Even though this saddens us, it doesn’t hurt to hope and pray!

Here are 3 quotes that made us fall in love with Michelle Obama and will hopefully inspire you to carry on through the midweek blues:

High Fash Friday: All Black SS16 Inspo

I hope every single one of you is having a really good Good Friday!

I’ve made a new feature: High Fash Friday which showcases some inspo for the season to come. Every week, a trend or a colour will be posted to inspire your SS16 wardrobe.

To start, here’s a collection of images that call forward my darker side – all black everyyythingggg.

7 Inspirational International Women’s Day Quotes 👸🏽✨

Happy International Women’s Day to every female on Earth. 

What better way to celebrate this liberating day than to share 7 inspirational quotes from fellow strong women.

If you’re a strong female, you don’t need permission.

Lady Gaga


When I’m assertive, I’m a bitch. When a man is assertive, he’s a boss.

Nicki Minaj


Some women follow men, and some women follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore.

Lady Gaga


I didn’t always know what I wanted to do, but I knew the kind of woman I wanted to be.

Diane von Frustenburg


I want every little girl who’s told she’s bossy to be told instead that she has leadership skills.

Sheryl Sandberg


Here’s to strong women. May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.

Unknown


We have to teach our girls that they can reach as high as humanly possible.

Beyonce


The Best Instagram Fashion Accounts 

Whenever some quick inspiration is needed, Instagram is the first place I go to. There are infinite numbers of accounts that offer inspo as well as affordable ways to get the look. I’ve put together a list of the best Instagram fashion accounts to follow. Here it is…

@micahgianneli

  

  

Model and blogger Micah Gianneli posts OOTD content daily. I love the fact that some days her look is casual and others she could be mistaken for someone attending a red carpet event. 

BONUS: She always tags the places she gets her clothes from in the photos! 

@badlydrawnmodels


 

It’s great to scroll down your feed and see something unique and fun. As the name clearly states, it’s an account of models… Drawn very badly. 

@thecurvyfashionista_
  

Not just your average celebrity street style account. @thecurveyfashionista_ makes gorgeous edits and is always one of the first to post the latest trends. 

@manieredevoir
  

The official account of a UK online retailer that offers editorials that every street style blogger could be inspired by. For every girl’s darker side. 

@houseofcb
  

Another online retailer that offers editorials that are vogue-worthy. This account is the complete opposite to the previous one on the list as the clothes are perfect for your girly side. 

@sydneyfashionblogger
  

This fashion account is like looking at a feed of your dream life. I’ve been a loyal follower for a couple of years and I am always inspired by @sydneyfashionblogger’s style and the quality of her photos. She’s the type of woman that makes you want to seriously up your game.

@thefashionbybel


   

More famous for being a worldwide beauty vlogging phenomenon, Carli Bybel’s fashion account is due serious credit. Another person that tags the shops that sell the clothes she wears (yasssss), you can get the look. Everything she wears is also super affordable. 


@laurenpopey


  

‘The Only Way Is Essex’ star Lauren Pope is a serious style crush. She often posts photos of her outfits and again, they’re usually from places where the majority of us shop. 

For tonnes of selfies and a peak into my life, follow my Instagram: @mollsdickinson, I might even follow you back 😉

Molicia Mondays: Tumblr Love ❤️

 

Screenshots of my Tumblr blog


Hello my lovelies, Monday is such a drag, right? It’s been a pretty bland day for me but this evening I’m visiting some family and saying goodbye to my grandparents as they move to Spain for the Winter on Wednesday. As they spend the last months of the year in sun, I look forward to forever hermitting at home and reigning the fortress that is my house proudly with a long and fluffy blanket around my arms. 

Onto today’s post…

I pretty much just wanted an excuse to self-promo my Tumblr blog. If you love everything fashion from runway to street style and want to know me on a deeper level, follow me!

💖 defy-u-stars.tumblr.com 💖
If you comment below your URL, I’ll give you a follow back! 

I’ve been a Tumblr girl since 2010 and 5 years later I finally am proud enough to publicise my URL!

Keep motivated this Monday, it’s almost over!

As Paris fashion week kicks off, here comes the weekly favourites post. Milan fashion week has got to be one of my favourites. I am so obsessed with the Italian luxury that is sewn into the garments of the fashion houses.

With some of the world’s biggest names in the modelling world: Natasha Poly, Joan Smalls and Gigi Hadid, the Versace show was highly anticipated. With their signature sexy style of masculine tailoring and bold colours, the show had to make it to the favourites.

That’s all from Milan Fashion Week. The photo source of all the runway images: Vogue.co.uk I will have a follow up post on Paris Fashion Week when it finishes. I’m especially looking forward to Dior, Louis Vuitton and Chanel. This Saturday I am visiting the current Louis Vuitton Series 3 exhibition in London so stay tuned for that post!
