It’s Prom Time!!


If you’re a 16 year old girl preparing for her 1st Prom or the Parent of said 16 year old girl you’ll want to get it right. Here’s our Prom Time top tips.

Dress to impress

Before you hit the shops do your research, use the Internet, Instagram and Pinterest to collate a mood board of favorite dresses, shoes and hairstyles.

When you’ve got an idea of what look you want to go for its time to think about where to get the dress. Again the Internet can be a great tool to find specialist shops. You can also ask any friends or family if they would recommend anywhere. eBay can also be worth a look as many of these prom dresses can be expensive and are often only worn once so you may be able to bag yourself a bargain!

Walk tall

If you plan on wearing heals make sure you get a pair you can walk comfortably in, the majority of girls at this age aren’t used to wearing a heal so once you bought them wear them around the house to get used to them so once the big event comes you’re able to carry yourself with confidence.

Crowning glory

You’re dress will often dictate how you want your hair styled. Weather it’s up or down, curled or straight use a hairdresser that you can trust, that is experienced at styling hair ( this is a different skill to cutting) and ask to look at s portfolio of her work. Once you’ve booked your hairdresser collate photos of the style you want to show her, have a trial and discuss what style will work best.

Painted faces

If doing you’re own make up then practice the look beforehand a few times so you know you’ll be able to recreate the look on the night. If you’re not confident at doing you’re own ‘evening look’ make up they’re are many Makeup artists who will do prom makeup packages most are fairly inexpensive.

And all that’s left is to get the date and hit the dance floor!!

Preferred suppliers

Let’s Get Fit!

letsgetfitMost of us make the resolution to ‘Get Fit’ in the new year, myself included, but after a December of partying January usually leaves us feeling a bit deflated! I always find that whether you’re hitting the Gym, doing a spot of Yoga or just taking the dog for an extra long walk looking good whilst doing it can definately lift your mood and spur you on!

I’ve pulled together some of my fave workout gear out there but there really are hundreds to choose from varying pricepoints so I’ve also compiled a list of other options at the bottom of the blog.

Footwear – Can be a minefield and can range dramatically from as little as £30 to well over £300. The advice I would give is to speak to your local sports store, advise them what activities you’ll be doing and your budget an they’ll be able to help you choose the right ones for you. Best of luck with your resolutions!!

Hello Autumn

I love Autumn the days may be a little shorter but we have a great excuse to party as the nights are longer, alternatively you could just take this as a great opportunity to get your jammies on an hour earlier! The change in weather though can cause us a few problems with our skin and our wardrobe. Here’s a few simple tips to help you breeze through the fall!

  1. SKIN DEEP. Look after your skin. The change in temperature and weather can take it’s toll on our skin so it is more important now than ever to show it some TLC. I make sure I drink plenty of water, I’m not very good at this so need to make a conscious effort! I trade in my tea/coffee and opt for hot water with lemon (and maybe some honey) instead. Exfoliating once a week is a great way to keep your skin soft and fresh, use a moisturiser high in vitamin E to give your skin a much needed boost.
  2. SHUT EYE. Sleep. Getting in your 8 hours a night is super important and will help your body repair itself properly and keep your imune system working to ward off all those nasty colds and bugs that seem to thrive this time of year.
  3. HANG ON. Keep hold of the summer. Help extend your summer glow with the abundance of tans and bronzers out there, my favourites include St Tropez in shower tan, Vita Liberata 4-7 day gradual tan and He-shi gradual day to day tan. All of these give you a natural healthy glow and are pretty easy to apply. Don’t forget to exfoliate before appling to avoid dark patches.
  4. WHAT TO WEAR?? Autumn is all about transitional peices, don’t feel as though you need to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe simply adapt what you’ve already got. Try wearing summer tea dresses with tights, boots and a leather jacket or putting a polo neck under a summer pinafore or shift dress. Layer up and wear jumpers over shirts. You can even keep your sandals in circulation and be bang on trend, just pop on a pair of lux ankle socks!! If you need further help with your autumn wardrobe contact us at http://www.mystylecompanion.com/ we’d love to help.

SS15 style: The Top Trench Coats for Women


trench 2


The Great British Summer! Apparently its here, the sun’s out, then it’s gone, then it’s out again. We can go from blue to grey sky’s in the blink of an eye and it’s a wardrobe nightmare dilemma. Nobody wants to be lumbered with a big heavy coat in summertime but then who wants to be sporting the ‘drowned rat’ look should the heavens decide to open?

My advice for this rather inclement weather is rather simple, layer up and grab a trench.

Layers can be easily removed should we be lucky enough to see some sunshine and soaring temperatures and quickly whipped back on if the weather takes a chilly turn.

Always have a pair of shades to hand so you are sun ready and not left looking the fool squinting with a face that resembles a wrinkly prune.

The Perfect coat for this season is the Trench. In my opinion it’s the most versatile of coats and will take you from season to season without dating. You can literally wear it with anything from jeans, jumpers and wellies to a LBD and killer heals.

Here are some of this seasons best trench coats for women;

Style Advice: How to do Layering

It’s all about the Layers!

how to layer, work the layer look, layersd, ss15

Layers, Layers, Layers


1) Keep in Shape.

Keep the under layers more fitted to define your shape better. If you wear a more fitted top underneath the over-layer it helps to define your shape more  so look for a good quality top that fits and skims in all the right places.

layers, basic layers, capsule wardrobe

Keep in Shape

2) Don’t turn up the volume.

Avoid fussiness falling on areas of the body where there is already volume. For example if you have a large bust avoid having ruffles, draping or frill on the bust area. If you are conscious of your tummy, again avoid fuss falling on this area and instead look for a cleaner line.
