{Fashion} Minimalism is the key

Hi there, with Christmas just 2 days away I have decided stressing about it won’t solve anything fast. As I mentioned in my Twenty fourteen December goals I will just be relaxing and enjoying life, saying that I am still yet to write the cards and send them off though my immediate family have already gotten theirs  thanks to Mango Salute and there creative and highly talented artists its everyone that has to wait for my hand delivery service. I shared in the outfits post what I will be wearing for the days before and after Christmas but was going through my wardrobe when I realised I have not done a clear out for a long time now.

When I went to Zambia this September/October I did not buy any clothes to take I just took whatever would fit in my 25KG max luggage limit and off I went because I knew I wanted to make room in my closet at some point this year. I am not going to lie and say I have not bought anything since because I have and though it was mostly for work I still did buy something. In thinking about what I want to update my wardrobe with I started to think ‘minimalism is the key’ here, I can’t just on buying & buying. I need good quality clothes which do not require much effort in up keep but lasts longer than your average joe.


Now that that’s done with I wanted to share with you some of the items I have been loving from these two London based boutiques –  Sylvie Quentin and Tonic Clothing are two companies that I am slowly acquainting myself with, I am in love with some of their products which I have already pinned on my wishlist board.

Follow Myrabev Lifestyle’s board Wishlist on Pinterest.

I have chosen One item from each company which I think every girl/woman/lady should have in their closet: A Smart coat and a Biker jacket, the smart coat will do what it says on the tin give your outfit a smart look and the biker jacket gives the vibes of wild side but yet so sophisticated when dressed well.

    I would actually wear either of these coats! They are so gorgeous. Fabulous choices. I’ve not heard of either of these brands! Must look them up!

    The Sylvie Quentin jacket is beautiful, with its feminine, flattering silhouette nipped in at the waist, and off-centered button closure. The faux shearling lining looks sooo cosy too! I just ordered a contrast-colored shearling cropped jacket (dark brown sleeves, with cream body shearling detail exterior and gold hardware) by J Brand, and I’m super-excited to get it – love being cosy-warm in the winter. 🙂 I like your fashion sense!

    we are traveling this year and I packed a ton of stuff to wear and have not used 1/4 of what I brought, because I am enjoying in doors activities with my family… no need for a fancy outfit around them..

    • December 25, 2014 / 2:06 pm

      hahaha no need indeed, have a wonderful festive holiday

      Thank you Shipra

    Ooh, I love both of these! I’m a huge fan of minimalistic clothing in neutral colors-you can mix and match them! 🙂

    • December 25, 2014 / 2:05 pm

      That’s the idea I am working towards

  15. December 23, 2014 / 8:03 pm

    I wish I could wear jackets like this more often. It’s rarely cold enough in Florida, so it’s hard to spend the money. I love both of your choices, though!

    • December 25, 2014 / 2:05 pm

      Thanks and you lucky in the UK its more cold than warm weather

  16. December 23, 2014 / 7:17 pm

    Oh my! I can’t tell which one I like the most! Both are great choices 😀
