Put some Spring in your step

Snow is still covering most of the country, and according to the weekend weather forecast it’s going to be with us for some time. The funny thing about snow is, it is magical and wonderous at its best, then once it starts to thaw and turns to ice and slush, we all decide we have had enough of winter and spring can’t come fast enough.

HAVE YOU ROCKED THAT FROCK?

Have you done it yet? Have you discovered how a fabulous frock can change your week for the better? Just to remind you, the dress is a great daytime choice, as it is so versatile your look will change completely depending on what you wear with it and how you accessorise it. For picking up the kids, wear it with a chunky knit, scarf and knee high boots. For work, go for opaque tights, heels and a blazer, and for coffee out with the girls, go for a fitted cardi with a skinny belt and brogues. Opting for a dress, is complete no-fuss way of getting dressed, you don’t have to waste precious time trying on dozens of outfit combinations, not that separates are a bad idea, there is a time and place and it’s not when you have to catch the 7.45 am train.

ROCK THAT FROCK

Happy Monday to all of our Bravissimo ladies, how’s your week looking so far?

Your calendar may already look like a small child has been let loose on it with a biro. Your ironing pile might have started to resemble Ben Nevis and you still need to fit in taking the dog to the vet and that report for work…take a deep breath and relax! Our lives are getting busier and busier, with so many women now juggling work, childcare and other commitments, there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the week and it’s no surprise we all feel a bit exhausted by Friday.

A new book by Leo Bormans called The World Book of Happiness, claims that one of the secrets to contentment is to ‘get organised’. So how can we get organised, if it doesn’t come naturally? We could start by writing appointments in a diary, instead of the back of an old envelope. Buy and send birthday cards in advance, set the alarm for a little earlier and get a head start. Write lists (lots of lists) and take on some tips from an organised friend. At least Bravissimo can take care of your wardrobe with a few bright ideas from Pepperberry.

BAG YOURSELF A BAG

Q: What does a women love just as much as a killer pair of shoes?
A: A killer bag.

If you haven’t already laid your eyes on our fabulous bags by Pepperberry, then you must take a look! The party season is nearly here and that is closely followed by the holiday season and we have bags for every occasion.

It is fully lined and it’s a good size, so will fit all your bits and pieces with extra room left over. There is a matching Oil Skin Satchel available, a great option for everyday use and a matching purse, the Oil Skin Purse, which is also fully lined.

For glitzy and glam Christmas nights out, a few sequins and a bit of satin are a must. Whether you are opting for a bodycon fitted cocktail dress, a fifties style prom dress, or full length ball gown, the essential partner to a knock out dress is a cute, sexy clutch bag. Pepperberry have a great choice for any colour and style of evening dress.

The Silver Diamante Clutch Bag, would look great with steel or a darker silver, or any jewel colour like ruby or jade, don’t forget to team it with silver heels too.

If you are wearing black heels with your evening dress, then black accessories are the way to go.

Pepperberry have two stylish clutches, the Black Clutch Bag in faux snakeskin is the simpler of the two, but would look great with a trouser suit or jumpsuit and a tux. Or you can go for the decorative clutch, the Sequin Envelope Clutch Bag is gorgeous clutch with a real vintage look, it is covered in black sequins, with gorgeous diamante clasp in the shape of a leaf. If you are looking for a statement clutch, then this would be perfect.

The coming party season means metallics are everywhere on the high street. We know there is lots of gold and silver out there, but pewter can also been seen in the shops and is harder to match up with accessories. However Pepperberry have the answer, the Pewter Clutch Bag, which is stylish and simple will be the perfect accompaniment to a pewter evening top or dress.
