Timeless style: Bella Singleton

We're at a time when 'throw away fashion' is at its highest and I'm guilty of heading straight into the high street chains and going a bit mad buying items I may only wear once. 
It is though the classic pieces that I still have years later; take my Louis Vuitton bag and scarf for example, over 10 years old and still going strong. 
Timeless pieces are worth every penny because they are just that, timeless and Bella Singleton does timeless very well with her contemporary accessories with beautiful prints inspired from around the world. 

Bella Singleton 
Bella started the brand in 2015 and has recently moved to my home town and her pieces will soon be available at the Sainsbury Centre and Truffle clothing boutique in Ipswich. Items can purchased through her website and other online retailers such as Tate Modern. 

Bella has had much press coverage for her beautiful silk designs from the classic scarfs to neckerchiefs and small squares that are perfect to adorn a bag, pocket or wrist with prices from £55. 


 The great thing about a timeless piece is they can be worn by all ages and styles. A pocket square against a sharp tailored suit adds an elegant feminine touch. A skinny scarf can be worn alongside your favourite necklace and little black dress for a touch of colour or like myself a long silk scarf styled with a plain 'T' and leather trousers adds a girly element that softens the harder leather look. 

I love the playful colours of the Cuba scarf that will be perfect throughout the summer months and upcoming wedding season.

Accessories a plain black bag with your scarf to compliment your outfit. I love the soft pastel colours against the knit jumper. 

Alongside the silk scarfs there are beautiful print cushions and my favourite Fedora hats, perfect for summer days strolling in the country or lazing on a tropical beach.

My Instagram Make-up

I recently had a foot operation if you don't follow me on Instagram and for 5 days I was stuck in the house and upon my first outing (a trip to find a fishing lake) I was excited to get a bit glammed up and make an effort with my make-up. To my surprise I had several messages complimenting me on my look and asking about products so I decided to film a YouTube video detailing what I used and how. 

You will notice in the video my eyes are so red, not sure if it was still from my operation and the pain medication I was on at the time but you will see how great my concealer is at hiding them. 
I love playing around with make-up but never feel I have the time in the morning so when its my day off I really like to make the effort. 

Let me know what you think 

Full product details are listed within description box of YouTube.

The classic coat: My Top picks

If there is ever an item you need in your wardrobe then a coat is on the list; now I'm the owner of more than one coat, it has become an obsession and with the arrival of a new wardrobe last week I now have a whole one dedicated for coats and jackets. 
I like to have a large selection as it can totally change an outfit but lately I've been reaching for the same one; one that literally is a classic shape and colour that will last year after year with the right care and really if space or funds do not allow for a selection then classic is the the only way to go. 

The Coat In Question 

I bought this coat two years ago from Primark, yes Primark. Since then I have added another long beige coat to the collection but this is the one that is easier to throw on for easy laid back styling. 
I love this coat as the colour goes with everything, it looks great with heels and trainers so perfect for day and night and above all it gives a chic look be it a gym outfit or a little black dress. 

Layered over a blazer or denim jacket for extra warmth. 

Shop The Style 

Obviously you are not going to be able to get your hands on this jacket but I've searched the best alternatives. 

1: ASOS £58 

This is my favorite one, belted for a sharper style or tie the belt at the back and wear open for casual styling. 

Which one is your favourite?
