Global Glam Traveller SS12 Trend

Teal Playsuit from Republic

These photo’s are for my forth post on the wear it your way Republic blog.  I really wanted to try out the glam traveller trend for SS12 and this was the result.  My main inspiration was the Holly Fulton SS12 collection, I really liked the 70s/ethnic mix.

I have never worn a playsuit before and I have never known frustration, than when I was halfway through taking these photos and needing the toilet.  I went to pull it up and realised that was not going to work, the zip is hard to do yourself  so I tried to pull the crutch part to one side and realised that might be a close call so decided to tackle the zip by myself while hopping from side to side.  I then pulled it down and got stuck in the belt. Moral of the story do not wear playsuits while alone if it has a difficult zip.  Other than that I feel much safer in a playsuit, no sudden gusts of wind flashing my backside.

I have wanted to do big crimped hair since I saw the lovely Katies hair on the magazine shoots for when we was the Jacques ambassadors.  I quite like it although its not as big as I wanted, I think its because my hair is too long and thick.

    Whoa. AMAZING. I have never worn a playsuit either! You have this whole Greek goddess-y look going on here. Gold + teal (darker teal, in this case) are stunning colors put together. Job well done 😉

      Thanks Grace :). The playsuit is not as dark as here, its just the lighting. I love teal or green and gold so much xx

    Ahahaha see? I .KNEW. that the playsuit was a challenging garment, to say the least! 🙂 But it does look so lovely that it’s kind of worth the trouble. Teal is a great color on you! I love the accoutrements you’re rocking too, and the hair looks fabulous! Way to take runway to realway!
