From Rule Britannia to Viva La Spagna ...

It was from Rule Britannia to Viva La Spagna last week as my cruise called in at VALENCIA.  There wasn't much time to spend in Valencia and Mr MB wasn't feeling so well so our opportunities for adventure were limited.  On the sunny side it was a beautiful day and what struck me most about Valencia - apart from the Churros, more on this later - was just how chic it was.  If it was the metaphor for any of the key style personalities it would be City Chic.

Are You A City Chic?

If you would describe your wardrobe as eclectic or filled with relaxed and casual items then a 'City Chic' you are not.

City chic you are if you are one of those ladies who looks effortlessly amazing in camel trousers and a crisp white shirt.  You like to stay current but prefer investment buys in luxe fabric and simple silhouettes.   You'll add a dash of 'fashion' perhaps in contrasting colour through your accessories.  You always understated yet look perfectly groomed and if I can be forgiven for saying so, expensive.    Stand up and take a bow City Chic ladies as lots of other style types really want to be you.

Think:  Carla Bruni-Sarkozy or Sharon Stone or Holly Go- lightly.  Sometimes Victoria Beckham, though admitedly she switches between City Chic and Dramatic, with a tendency to the latter.

A Little Slice Of Home In The Med ... ?

    
Gibraltar - So British yet so
Mediterranean
The Barbary Rock 'Apes' of Gibraltar
Yes, I'm Talking About Gibraltar

After a trip to Casablanca last week the overnight sail to Gibraltar on the ocean waves just couldn't have been more diverse.  A little bit of home right next door to Spain.    Gibraltar was actually under Spanish rule until 1704, when it was captured in the name of Charles VI by the Anglo -Dutch.  

Gibraltar was then ceded by Spain to the British and became one of Britain's key colonies.  But, Spain subsequently sought to restore its sovereignty over Gibraltar but was rejected by Britain and the Gibraltarians themselves, who vigorously asserted their right to self-determination. Negotiations over Gibraltar's status have continued between Britain and Spain but have not reached any conclusion. Certainly the people I met on my short visit there were very proudly British.  


Did you know that because so may inhabitants arrived and settled in Gibraltar from all over the world it gave rise to a unique language - some say it's where the expression 'talking gibberish' comes from.   

Gibraltar Airport Landing Strip
What struck me most when I was there last week was the tangible  'Britishness',  mixed with something that was just not so 'British';  apes running free for example and planes crossing the road.  Wow - it was so refreshing.

But back to what my blog is really about; - the colour, the shopping, the style.   Well, what I caught a glimpse of but didn't get the chance to spend time browsing - too busy with the amazing sights of the North Rock - was the British / Gibraltarian high street, complete with familiar brand names of Next, M&S, Peacocks etc.

As a Scot in Switzerland one of my biggest curiosities in moving to Zurich is the foreign territory that is the Swiss shopping scene, the 'High Street', the shopping centres, the department stores, the brands & lines available.  Who does what and where?  Renowned the world over, the British High Street and my intimate knowledge of it  is something I now realise I have taken for granted.   Don't get me wrong the Zurich Bahnhofstrasse is glamorous, pretty and sophisticated (especially at Christmas with the most amazing lights) as well as .... expensive.... but 'where?', my poor other half hears me regularly cry, 'oh where do real people shop?'.


Swiss living ladies PLEASE get in touch with your TOP SHOPPING SUGGESTIONS.  I'll feature them in a more regular Happy Hour Friday Slot.    


And so that also got me to thinking again about something I have been a long time pondering.  Do
we expat: - Brits / Irish / North Americans / Canadians / Australians / New Zealanders / South Africans and others I have been remiss to note - have a fundamentally different 'culture' when it comes to shopping, than that of our Swiss girlfriends?   


Tell me what you think?


And so from my own furry friend (George the dog) and me it's sweet dreams x

Here's Lookin' At You Kid ...

While at the spiritual home of Bergman & Bogart, Rick's Cafe in Casablanca last week, I took a sip of Kir Royal, sat beneath a mirror ball at a table beside the grand piano and ate figs with goats cheese, served at a clothed table that was bedecked with Moroccan lamps. I felt like Ingrid Bergman herself -  alongside Mr MB, my very own 'Humphrey'.

I love vintage - the real thing and anything with vintage styling.  If your grandma wore it then I would probably love it. 

Today the neat hourglass is considered ideal and is the shape that all the clothes we buy are made for.  Supermodels today however tend to be lean columns with an athletic look.  I believe that we can all look good in vintage lines of most era's but some are just our very best.  So what film era would you be a shining star in?

The favoured fashion silhouette has changed over the years; from the flat 1920's flapper to the corsetted wasp waist - think Dita Von Teese - favoured by 1930' s and 40's.  Then there was the busty movie pin-ups of the 50's, the emergence of the waif in the sixties to the power shoulder / slim legged look of the 80's,  before coming full circle back to the androgyny of 90's.  Practically every variation of body type has been 'a la mode' at some point in fashion history - it's just a case of dressing to your era.

Neat & Full Hourglass
Ahhh, the Hourglass.  The most desired shape; defined bust, clear waist and curved hips.  The key here is that you are in proportion either in a neat way or a full some way.  Your shoulder line will be the same width as your hip line and it's likely you'll buy the same size top as bottom. Think Marilyn or Mad Men (my favourite drama, possibly of all time).  On that note I'm just going to drop in that Joanie and Dita are my style heroines and I aspire to dress like them every day in life - but don't!

Vintage periods that showcase that waist are the winners as are V and sweetheart necklines.   Wrap dresses work well and if you are neat a wiggle dress, a la Joan in Mad Men is perfect.  I am so envious! Steer clear of the 1920's flapper dresses and box jackets, unless the latter are of the very cropped variety.   Also best to avoid 1960's A-line or trapeze shift dresses which make you look wider than you actually are and may hang from the bust line. 

The Triangle or  Pear  
That's me.  A triangle.  With a narrower or slimmer upper body than hip, you'll be bigger around the bottom, thighs and hips but possible not the tummy.   You tend to be smaller busted than bottomed but you can be full on the bust too - like me.  The key is in the shoulder to hip ratio.

And so the 1970s maxi dresses are red carpet winners for you as they highlight where you're slim on your upper body and skim the "problem areas".  Also us triangles tend to be shorter in the leg so we've got to love a wedge or platform shoe that gives us height and evens out our proportion. 

In the same way, strapless 50s gowns with sweetheart neckline give shape to your upper half while hiding big bottoms.  Boat necks are also fabulous for the triangle as they balance out the silhouette.  Any period that favours the shoulder pad - 1940s and 80's and maybe the 2010's are great. 

Not so much love for our figure in the days of figure hugging flares of the '70's and our boat definitely sailed when the mini-mini mod dress was in favour.  

Column & Rectangle
You're straight without much definition and as such 1920s styles are your Oscars moment.  The 1960's shifts, mod and tunic chic are also perfect for you as is the mini.  You have great legs! 

If you are 'too old' for the mini just think ever slightly 'above the knee' instead.  For brave rectangles the wild swirling patters of the 1970's are fantastic for adding movement and curve to your straight lines and for the slimmer columns you'll find that the figure hugging flares of the period love you.  For all you straight up and down starlets the 1940's & 50's would not have been your glory days but with the right layering or tailoring you can create the illusion of that nipped in waist.


And so back to Casablanca, back to Rick's and back to ..... the GIN!

Weekly Coffee, Cake & Colour ... a splash of BLUE!

With your Coffee (tea or schoggi) today I'm bringing you a splash of  BLUE

Inspired by my recent day at sea during my holiday I thought I would bring a Splash of Blue to the table. 

I am feeling a little bit guilty about profiling blue as we emerge from winter here in the Zurich countryside which is ... well, bluish cold!.  But today here in Rorbas there was a beautiful bright blue sky so I'm encouraging you all to think summer blue instead:  sea and bright sun, summer denims and the nautical look, the blue of bluebells & cornflowers.
Often associated with trustworthiness, authority, professionalism and safety, blue can also signify romance and spirituality.

All of us have blue in our wardrobe whether it be the Navy Blue of a professional suit, the Denim Blue of our Jeans, a lovely Breton stripe top  (one of my favourites) or Sky Blue in a favourite summer top or dress. I have to say I'm quite partial to a spot of blue but have tended to favour the extremes - Navy, Royal and Sky, though that does have a lot to do with my Clear colouring & dramatic style preferences! 

Can I Wear Blue?
Unlike Yellow, everyone can wear Blue successfully.  As a Clear/Warm and Deep I have lots of blue options in my colour palette.  When I open my wardrobe I find that I am the proud owner of lots of blue.  My blue jeans, mostly in dark blue for my body shape though, as well as a wool navy suit.  I also own a gorgeous sapphire blue evening dress in satin which I wear with red satin shoes and clash with some bright green eye shadow - a bit 1970's without crossing into fancy dress, at least I hope not ;-)


Queen Elizabeth - gorgeous
blue with a pewter spot, a dash
of fuschia lippie & great black
accessories.  Perfect!

Perfect Colour Matching - Kate in Sapphire (Soft),
Frieda in Cornflower (deep), Angelina in Lapis (Clear) &
Jenna in Light Periwinkle (Warm)
All you lucky ladies with COOL
colouring can wear all the shades of blue; that's because you have a blue rather than yellow undertone to your colouring.   As a top tip you are most certainly a cool if you have lovely grey, silver or white hair but those with ash blonde or black hair (and skins) can also be cool too. Dame Judi Dench & Helen Mirren are great examples of cools.  As is Queen Elizabeth the II, looking so youthful in blue on a recent engagement.  She's also rocking black as an accessory.


“Blue is the only color which maintains its own character in all its tones...it will always stay blue; whereas yellow is blackened in its shades, and fades away when lightened; red when darkened becomes brown, and diluted with white is no longer red, but another color – pink.”           Raoul Dufy

Top Tips For Colour Blocking:  Did you know that on a colour wheel based on traditional colour theory where blue is considered a primary colour, its complementary colour is considered to be ORANGE.

Blue Trends For 2012 
Lapis (bright maritime blue) & Light Aqua (similar to the blue at the far right of my colour bar above) also referred to in some fashion pages as Sodalite & Cockatoo  - are being predicted as a key colour trends in fashion for Spring & Summer 2012 as are pastel and candy blues.


Keeping with my ocean waves inspiration I notice that nautical stripes, a personal and perennial favourite, are also back big time this year.  The most, as well as some of my favourites, can be found at UK Based retailer Phase Eight. 
WARNING There is bad news and good news here;  the bad news is that they do not mail overseas but I have worked some magic and can advise that the Great British institution that is House of Fraser also stock these items and the cherry of the cake is that they offer fast, affordable international delivery to Switzerland.

All of these dresses  are Phase Eight.  They range in price from £25 to £90 - from CHF30  to CHF 140.  Just in case stripes aren't your thing I've thown in some nautical spots in blue too.   The maxi is admittedly my favourite - I'm seeing it with tan wedges and belt.  Though I am loving the dress with the striped top and navy tulip skirt which is probably best for my triangular figure. 



My monthly favourite online retailer Next also have a great range and a really gorgeous bretton stripe rib cotton top (left)  from 19 Euros to this gorgeous sweater with anchor motif at 33 Euros.   And on that wistful note...

Tschuess - true blue, baby I love you

More Gaudi than Gaudy. Are you a Creative?

"Barcelona, it was the first time that we met.  Barcelona. How can I forget. The moment that you stepped into the room. You took my breath away Barcelona!"
Antoni Gaudi
If you follow my blog you will know that I am just back at Mirror Ball Studios from a lovely jaunt around the Med.  It was indeed a holiday but has me all inspired.  On the first day of my travels I found myself arriving into sunny Barcelona. 

 
Mr MB says that Barcelona is a city that just must have been designed on illegal substances, so surreal is it's architecture.  Officially, it's actually Art Noveau (or is it?).  There is no doubt that this is a city that is brave, bold and beautiful.  Most famous for the work of Antoni Gaudi, Barcelona is city full of pattern, shapes and colours that scream their presence in the architecture and people.  On this, my first ever visit, I was completely charmed by how wacky Barcelona is.  Three cheers for the local authorities who clearly have a history of being visionary too.   

 
Gaudi's Barcelona
In the spirit of Gaudi I was instantly hit by how Barcelona could be a metaphor for all of us ladies who have Creative Style Preferences. 

All of us have a dominant style preference which determines the clothing choices that we make.  Our preferences may change over time as our lifestyles change, whereas some of us have a secret style preference that we'd like to embrace but don't quite know how to.  Some of us switch between personalities depending on occasion or mood but in the main we have a default preference.  Those of us lovely ladies with Creative tendencies stand out - you and everyone else will know who you are.  Some will admire your style while others might consider it a bit 'messy', 'loud', 'ill considered' or 'inapporpriate'. 

 
Am I A Creative Style Personality? - A full personal style consultation will help you identify this &cover in much more detail, combining your preferences with your body shape, colouring, silhouette and scale.
  • Are you great at combining different items of clothing and accessories - clashing patterns, colours & fabrics all at the same time. Are you bold with colour in your hair and make up? 
  • Is your wardrobe full of items from a huge range of sources - it will probably include vintage, charity shop purchase, your mother's clothes, high fashion and remodelled clothes?
  • Do you find chain stores just a bit distasteful - you would be horrified at walking out of a chain store in a top to toe outfit but you'll pick very selectively and customise from chain stores instead.

Last Week, All At Sea ...

MSC Splendida - home for a week.  Gorgeous.
Well I am back from a wonderfully relaxing, inspiring and fun cruise around the western Mediterranean courtesy of Mr Mirror Ball and his lovely Valentines holiday gift.  If you have never been on a cruise I can highly recommend it.  Waking up in a different city, more often country, every morning, the opportunity to relax on the waves, copious amounts of delicious delicacies, a good helping of glamour and lots of new smells, sights and sounds.    Okay, so there are lots of people on board with you but believe me when I say you can escape the crowd.  Imagine a big, bustling hotel that happens to float you off to different locations but where you can find private time, dinner or a drink for two on the cabin balcony or a dance at the disco.  There you have it.

       
My travels last week - so much to see/sea so little time

In the week I had the pleasure of calling in at Barcelona in Sunny Spain, then off to drink Gin with Bogart and Bergman in Casablanca, to a little slice of Britain in Gibraltar before disembarking in the chocolate heaven of Valencia (also home to a top football team, so Mr MB tells me) then off to tres magnifique Marseilles before cruising into Genoa. I'm sure I heard 'Volare' as I woke that morning: Volare, rather ironically meaning 'to fly', of course. 


Forthcoming Mirror Ball Musings:  -

Tomorrow
Barcelona with the theme of Creative Style Personalities & Embracing Pattern.  I'm thinking Gaudi rather than gaudy.

Wednesday
A day at sea with the a pop of Blue for our Coffee, Cake & Colour break. 

Thursday
Casablanca with the theme of Screen Sirens & Vintage Styling as we hang out at Rick's Cafe.

Friday
Gibraltar with the theme of Great Britishness for Happy Hour Friday, brought to you during London Fashion Week too.

Saturday
Valencia with the theme of being a City Chic Style Personality & Personal Style Consultations.

Sunday
Marseilles with the theme of sparkle (/jewellery/accessories/embellishment) - partly in honour of  the sun on the sea but also partly in honour of the AMAZING Swarovski staircase on board the MSC Splendida Cruise Ship that was home for a week.

Off On A Research Trip - ok, so it's a holiday.

Lovely ladies & gents,

Tonight I head off on a week around the Mediterranean so won't be at my blog unless I can get sneaky access while on my travels.


Off to discover Genoa, Barcelona, Marseilles, Nice, Casablanca, Gibraltar before sailing back to Zurich.  Hoping for some style inspiration while putting my capsule wardrobe skills into suitcase packing.  So we'll play it again, Sam, in a week. 


Auf Wiedersehen, Gute fahrt ! (the latter is not what my Scottish followers think it is)

Weekly Coffee, Cake & Colour - a dash of YELLOW

With your Coffee (tea or schoggi) today I'm bringing you Yellow. Tipped by style gurus as this year's big colour,  I've always been a huge fan.  I am the proud owner of an all time favourite vintage coat & Dessy evening gown in bright yellow.  And what a better way to brighten up a very cold & snowy start to the year: 
From Brrrr .........to Brrrright!
 
Me, Lady MB centre with my yellow
full length gown on & other lovely ladies x

But yellow isn't for everyone. Indeed, for most of us it is just one of those colours that is TOO bright (if you can get such a thing); a colour which sort of screams it's arrival; a colour which is too 'young' or simply too difficult to get right.  Certainly it has an immediate impact on your complexion - radiating, if you're lucky but dulling and drawing out shadows if not one of your colours.   BUT there's good news ladies; your best colours are those that you should wear from the waist upwards, close to your face.  So if it's not a colour for you or if you are a little too cautious to wear it top to toe why not try it in trousers or a skirt or in a more muted shade.



Some Fabulous Facts about Yellow (/ˈjɛl/). (thanks to Wikipedia.org)

It is the colour evoked by light that stimulates both the L and M (long and medium wavelength) cone cells of the retina equally, with no significant stimulation of the S (short-wavelength) cone cells.[2] Yellow's traditional complementary colours are purple or indigo blue. Top tip for colour blocking.








Can I Wear Yellow?
All of us have a Dominant Colour Type - made up of three factors: tone, clarity & depth.  There are 6 Dominant Colour Types (though colour analysis will reveal the unique mix of all 3 factors in each of us).  Some of us are cool and some of us are warm, some of us are

Savvy Style Thoughts For A Thursday ...

Coco - A Woman After My Own Heart.

She has a point.  Shoes can be a great way to wear colour, to lengthen your height or shorten your height, to make you appear slimmer or simply to embrace an element of your personal style personality. 

I'm not such a fan of the super skinny look that Rachel Zoe appears to advocate but in essence she is right that our personal style is a form of expression.  You should walk in the room looking fantastic.  We should se YOU before your dress.  

Sophia - so true.  Your style choices should maximise your assets (not just those ones) and minimise those areas that sap your confidence.  But your choices shouldn't create a visual wall around you.  Ditch the too big & the sea of black (unless you're a 'deep' colour palette, in which case you'll look fabulous in black)!


And Finally - I am loving this quote and wishing that I had thought of it first. x


Always on hand for some styling & colour consulting if you need some help to embrace your inner Coco & Sophia. Lady MB x

Laundry Day ...

So it's laundry day here in Rorbas, Zurich/Winterthur.  And I am reminded by the number of 'Dry Clean' only items I have in my wardrobe that I have a Dramatic/Romantic styling personality.  True to my 'dramatic' nature I buy items I love, thereby paying almost no attention to the ongoing care required.

You'd think I'd learn but still I find myself regularly frustrated on wash day while I do the 'should I risk it/should I not' Russian roulette in front of the machine, while simultaneously bemoaning the ongoing cost of my favourite item.  Clothes really should come with an ongoing care cost label - don't you think?

But then there's something SO satisfying about taking THAT risk with the machine when ta da, your item comes out clean, fresh, in one piece, the same size and with some cash saved.  Fantastic.

Does this sound like you? 

If so this could suggest that you also have 'dramatic' tendencies in your style personality.    If you just wouldn't dream of going for all this fuss / or ongoing costs when choosing clothes then you are likely to have 'natural' tendencies in your style personality.   

For all of us dramatic and naturals for whom washing instructions are central to our lives here's the:  LAUNDRY DECODER.    Now all you have to decide is when to check out the laundry instructions:   Before you Buy or On Laundry Day?


Note:  generally universal but some variations per country.  Please don't sue me if your prized items shrinks!
