I’ve recently been partnered with Lyst, a new (to me) website. Lyst is a website filled with all the best brands and latest clothes which you can browse through to curate your own Lysts. You can also make purchases straight through the Lyst website which is handy.
It didn’t take me long to figure out how to use the website, it’s very straight forward. I personally like to dive straight into the search bar, head for the dresses and then narrow down my search by designer, pricing and colour. There’s also the option to browse through the New For You section. This selection is compiled from all your favourite brands and styles (which you implement when you sign up).
Like any good website they also have an app which is easy to use and delightfully addictive. You can easily browse, search and curate your own Lysts straight from your phone. There’s also a section dedicated to inspiration and articles. If you’re looking for some extra inspiration then check out The Long Lyst.
I really enjoyed curating my own Lysts over the weekend and have found them useful in helping to develop my new style. I’ve mentioned before that I’m in the process of taking a lot of things I own to the charity shop. This way I can focus on buying investment pieces that I know I’ll wear for a long time. I’m currently enjoying greys, navy, pastel pink, red and a splash of maroon. Building lists of my favourite things with Lyst is really helping me to narrow down my style.
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of autumn and winter, especially when it comes to fashion. Over the weekend I spent some time creating a few Lysts for the upcoming winter months. The weather has become very cold here in Sheffield so I thought it was about time I decide what direction I wanted to take my style in.
Throughout November and December it’s all about keeping warm and cosy with layers. I like to wear a pretty dress and then layer up with soft grey jumpers, wooly hats and a warm coat. Then when I finally make it to the coffee shop the layers come off and the dress has a chance to shine. Here are a few things I have my eye on:
Find everything over in my Lyst
I’ve also ben looking at shoes because I’ve been struggling to find the perfect shoes for winter, there’s only so long I can keep wearing Vans and Converse before my feet start to get wet. I’ve managed to curate a selection of shoes for both the day and night that I’d like to incorporate into my wardrobe. Here are some of the beauties I’ve picked out for the festive party season:
You can find these beauties in my Festive Party Shoes Lyst
You may notice that I’ve included a couple of pairs of Ghillie shoes within my Lysts. I’ve had my eye on them throughout this year, they’ve been everywhere. I’d be quite surprised if you haven’t come across the style before, they’ve been around for 5 centuries. I was interested to read that the style originates back to the 1700s when the shoes were created without tongues to ensure that water could drain quickly from the shoe. The lacing up the leg was there so that the shoe (and leg) could be pulled from the mud without being lost. As the years went on the Ghillie shoe became more popular and well loved by designers during the 50s. This year the Ghillie had the chance to shine once again with a little help from Aquazzura.
I tend to go off wearing heels during the winter months. If anyone’s going to slip over then it’s usually me. So, as much as I love heels I think a pair of Ghillie style shoes will be the best bet for the upcoming festive parties. I can look good, stay comfortable and avoid carrying around an extra pair of shoes in my handbag.
Don’t forget to explore my other lysts, I’ll be adding more throughout the week. I really am addicted.
