Can you be a Feminist and still love Makeup?

Something happened the other day that really rattled my cage.
My hackles went up and my lip got all tooth barring and curly!

It was all to do with the dreaded F-word.

I know I'm late to the feminist party.
Feminism has been all over the news recently and you can even buy slogan emblazoned tatt in order to 'prove' your feminist credentials are genuine (more on that later).

BUT for some people, the word FEMINIST is a dirty word.
Admitting to being a feminist is on a par with admitting you don't wash your bedsheets.
Dirty Dirty DIRTY!

Winter Work Outfit | Wrap Dress & Patent Ankle Boots

Houndstooth Wrap Dress | Layered work outfit | Fake Fabulous

Wrap dresses are touted as the dress that "Looks better on a real body!"
Wrap dresses are the "Perfect dress for every woman".
Wrap dresses are the one dress style that truly flatters the female form.

Unfortunately, wrap dresses do nothing much for my body.
(and I'm pretty sure it's as real as the next woman's!)

Don't get me wrong... I like a wrap dress and I love the look of them on anyone with curves.
BUT on me, I feel that a wrap dress falls flat (as a pancake)!

Winter Outfit Idea | Checked Coat and Gents Trousers

Checked Coat & Wool Trousers | Winter Style | Fake Fabulous

I love an androgynous look.
Men's shirts and suit trousers.
Brogues and tough looking boots.
I even enjoy wearing a tie from time to time!

Wearable but BOLD Vintage 80's Outfit I Statement Knits

Vintage Statement knit | Fake Fabulous

There are so many Vintage-inspired looks in style just now.
Magazines are full of them.
The trendy shops are full to bursting with vintage buys... Urban Outfitters is a great example.

None more so than the bold statement knit.

Bold 80's and 90's inspired jumpers are everywhere and they often cost a pretty penny.

I'm not a fan of spending more than I have to when it comes to fashion so imagine my delight at finding this genuine (hand knitted) vintage mohair jumper.
It's a charity shop find, of course!

Conservative (but Not Boring!) Work Outfit Idea

Navy Wool Man Trousers and Ice Blue Cashmere | Work Outfit | Fake Fabulous

Work outfits can be dull as dishwater can't they?
Today I'm styling a (fairly) conservative work outfit that met the 'Smart(ish) and professional' criteria I needed but didn't put me in a style coma!

How to Wear Red Shoes.. One simple Tip!

Pink Leather dress, star tights and Red Suede Shoes | Fake Fabulous

Red shoes are undeniably iconic.
Think of Dorothy's amazing ruby slippers.
Or, the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale and Moira Shearer in the 1948 film adaptation.
Red shoes are glamorous and beautiful.

However, in the real world, red shoe purchases can seem like a great idea at the time only to end up gathering dust in our wardrobes.
Red shoes can be tricky to style, and no matter how many glamorous red-shoe-outfits we look at on Pinterest, they can still feel a bit intimidating.

Don't Go Shopping! Trendy Autumn Outfit Idea

Cobalt Blue Long Coat, Burgundy Wool Dress | Autumn Outfit | Fake Fabulous

With every new season comes the usual designer must-haves.
Every brand is trying to convince us that our current wardrobes are outdated.
We're in danger of looking old-fashioned and frumpy unless we spend money NOW!

Their ad campaigns are full of the latest must-buys, must-haves and can-not-live-withouts.
Get them immediately or miss out.
Spend spend spend or simply give up on looking good.
