Hello beautiful people!
Welcome to November!! Woohoo! I cant believe how quick this year has gone! I am gearing up for quite a bit of travel in the next 2 months so watch this space! Loads of travel content to come! I will be in Thailand, India, Bali and Fiji before Christmas. So any tips are welcome!! Please leave them in the comment section below.
We all know I love my sleeve details! This could be bell sleeves, extra long sleeves and detailed cuffs. The key in wearing statement sleeves is you want to keep the rest of the outfit quite simple so you don’t have other focal points fighting for attention. The other thing to watch for with sleeves is soup… You don’t want to try eating a big bowl of soup with monster sleeves, it’s going to be a disaster. So all those reading this in the Northern Hemisphere heading into winter, don’t get all excited about sleeves and then head to the deli for a bowl of soup. Just not a good combo – hahahahaha ; )
Ok back to sleeves, you will have noticed that I recently came across a design house that is proving to be a good supplier of sleeves for my sleeve obsession. They’re based in South Africa, and there’s not a lot of soup in South Africa… so it kinda makes sense. It’s Michael Maven and the pitch is below – check out www.michaelmavenonline.com for more.
