2015 Winter Fashion Trends

2015 Winter Fashion Trends | Stolen Inspiration | Kendra Alexandra | New Zealand Fashion Blog
I've been meaning to do an updated trends post for a while now but I seemed to keep pushing it to the back of my mind - so while I'm still into these, you may have seen a few of them floating around already. The thing I love about trends particularly is that you can incorporate them into any season; so while I'll be wearing these in New Zealand for the winter, bloggers overseas will be styling them for summer. Basically, a cheat sheet for trans-seasonal dressing and getting the most wear out of your clothing. When following trends, I always try to go for ones that you know won't look 'outdated' 5 minutes later and that you actually like (there's nothing worse that feeling awkward in your own clothes). So, here are four of my favourite subtle trends for winter 2015...

You know you've been a design student when that last photo (in my eyes at least) is inspiring. I mean, as long as you aren't living in a place with walls like that I think it's fine to enjoy them. This week has been a mix of stress, sleep deprivation and lack of food. I have managed to organise something extra special for Stolen Inspiration's 6th birthday which is happening in just over a week so make sure you watch this space for details on that. I'll save you some more rambling though and just get on with the highs and lows of my week thus far...

Whiskey and Wine

Let me just take a moment to appreciate these wedges. I've been lusting after the Celine ones for the longest time, especially this burgundy pair Rumi Neely used to wear on the regular, so I was happy to find a pair with the same vibes from Topshop. They're super comfy and easy to walk in which is a huge plus in my book. I actually had a similar pair of sandals from Boohoo at the end of last year but they went missing and I'm still SO annoyed about it, they were amazing. The week so far has revolved around finishing methodical university reports, and my workload is only about to get so much worse. It's nice to have something else to focus on in between times that's at the other end of the spectrum, as far as work goes. A healthy balance between creative and intellectual, if you will. Now, before I try to procrastinate further, I better get back to it - hope you're all enjoying your week!




Weekly Recap #6

Kendra Alexandra | Stolen Inspiration | New Zealand Fashion Blogger Kendra Alexandra | Stolen Inspiration | New Zealand Fashion Blogger Kendra Alexandra | Stolen Inspiration | New Zealand Fashion Blogger Kendra Alexandra | Stolen Inspiration | New Zealand Fashion Blogger Kendra Alexandra | Stolen Inspiration | New Zealand Fashion Blogger I'm really starting to regret procrastination to the point where I feel sick - pretty sure when I signed up to University this side effect wasn't disclosed in the pamphlet. Of course, this type of stress is mostly just a motivator but I hate knowing that I have continuous work to do for the next two weeks. On the bright side, the next time I venture outside the house (besides from getting food) will be when everything is done apart from my two exams. They said this chapter would go fast, but I'm nearly there and it still feels like the end will never come. I guess I'll believe it when I get to it, right? Anyway, since it's the end of the week here's my highs and lows for you...

The Winter Coat

It's definitely starting to get cold enough outside to be wearing oversized coats - the bigger the better. I've been gravitating towards the camel neutrals so far this season, it's such an easy shade to chuck on without giving it a second thought. I don't know what it is about me at the moment, it's not even THAT cold considering this time last year the ground was covered in snow, but I feel like I'm freezing constantly. This, not so coincidentally, has lead me to purchasing too many turtlenecks. They're pretty much like a top and scarf in one, and this one from Glassons has been my go-to layering piece lately. I'm really fussy about turtlenecks because I have a *ahem* bigger bust, but this one is made of a really nice material that doesn't suffocate the ladies. In other news, I'll be taking over Belle Bird boutique's Instagram for the next week so make sure to check them out to see what I've been up to.

5 Tips for Saving while Shopping Online

11.5.15

Stolen Inspiration | Saving While Shopping | Kendra Alexandra | Fashion Blog So forever and a half ago I decided I was going to try publish more 'article' type posts because I have a blog, so why not share more than just photos? I've put together a small post about how to save while spending, because if you know me in real life, you'll know I'm like an encyclopaedia on 'where to buy cool clothes cheap' and 'how to get them all on discount'. My Mum would also argue that I have a really bad shopping addiction. While I do love designer clothes and spend too much splurging on them, I also don't think money really reflects style and you could look a million bucks in a $50 outfit, with the right pieces. So without further ado, continue reading for my 5 best tips for saving money while you shop...
