Paris Fashion Wekk SS15 Street Style

Out of all fashion weeks Paris fashion week is definitely my favourite.
Not only my favourite designers like Kenzo, Acne, Saint Laurent or Chanel showcase their collection during that time but also the impeccable Parisian street style makes the PFW experience even more utterly fashionably magical. 


Duster Coat

So here is the part two of the all black look. I wanted to show you how easy it is to transform an outfit from something quite boring to something much more fun by just changing the top, choosing funky accessories and throwing on a timeless and always on trend piece. My timeless piece in this look is this gorgeous duster coat. I got it on sale in a vintage shop in Paris and kinda regretted spending so much money impulsively on a piece I didn't think I would get much wear out of.
Time showed me that investing in basic pieces always pays off . I wore it quite a lot in summer and plan on wearing it even more in fall as it looks absolutely gorgeous with boots sweaters, scarfs, hats etc. 
The 'something different' I mentioned in my last post is a video ! I love watching lookbooks myself so thought I'd make one too. It was my second time ever editing a video so apologies for the weird angles and not exactly professionally cut clips, I promise to get better at it. If you'd like to see more videos from 4ngstyle let me know ! Shooting this one was such a blast I'd love to do it again.

All Black / Blog Awards Ireland

To find out I got to the final of Blog Awards Ireland in Best fashion blog  was honestly the higlight of this month and definitely one of the happiest moments in my blogging life! 
I'm so happy to see that there are some people out there who like my little online space.
I'm up against really amazing Irish fashion blogs and I think every one of us deserves to win, unfortunately that cannot happen so may the judges chose the best one.
I'm so happy and honoured with this nomination I could give everyone hugs right now :) 
 I was hoping to shoot a really cute girly look for this occasion but as per usual I didn't have time and ended up shooting my all black work outfit. All black isn't very me but it seems to be a very popular style so I guess you could say this look ties in with the latest trends. 
Getting to the final inspired me to do something more than just a normal post, I should probably finish off this post now before I the queen of spoilers spoil everything, but make sure to be checking this space regularly for the next couple of days as 'part two' is on it's way.

My cheerleaders were really happy we got into the final :'D 


How to afford Louboutin/ Chanel / Holidays

I think every one of us ladies at least once in her life dreamed of having one of these beautiful pairs of Louboutins or a quilted Chanel bag. 
I'm all about making my dreams come true now so I'm starting a 'saving for Chanel' plan ! 
The best part is that this plan is going to make me healthier, prettier ( hopefully)  and will get me a Chanel too ! Hope it will inspire you too! 
Where to get the money for the Chanel/ Louboutin/ LV you ask ? Here is the answer! 

1. Goodbye busses.
 Instead of taking the bus to college/ work every morning start walking or cycling! 
This way you will not only avoid paying ridiculous money for the always late buses but you will also get healthier and get nice toned legs too! 
I brought this plan to life and started cycling everywhere 2 weeks ago lost 1 pound and saved €52! 


2. Goodbye takeaways. 
I must admit I have a slight addiction to takeaway coffee and sushi.  But don't we all just love our Sturbucks in the morning and munchies in the evening ? 
By making the coffee yourself and putting it into your favourite coffee mug and teaching yourself to make sushi at home you can save up to €80 in only two weeks time. 
Coffee € 3.50 x 10 = €35 
Bento boxes €12 x 4 = €48 

3. Goodbye alcohol.
Yes I did say goodbye alcohol... Okay maybe not all the alcohols. Wine with your girls on a Friday night is okay but a crazy night out and getting shitfaced is a no! Those Louboutins are worth it, I promise! 
Nightclub tickets 2 x €10 = €20
Drinks in a pub 2 x €45 = €90 

4. Goodbye unnecessary expenses.
Do you really need that YET ANOTHER red lipstick... You have 7 similar ones at home. 
That sale dress is so last season, you like it alright but are you REALLY going to wear a tulle floral dress in winter? Hardly. 
And this way in two weeks time you can save up to €60.
Lipstick €18
Dress €40 

And thats 303 in two weeks ! and - approx 2 pounds . 

I know that not all of us actually spend that much money in two weeks, I certainly don't, so it might take us a longer while to save up 445 euro for Louboutin Pigalle or whooping 3 000 euro ( or more ) for a Chanel. But what you save is always gonna be yours, you can spoil yourself to a trip to spa or holidays with that money!
