This previous year was another loopy one, each for me and for The Shy Stylist. So many new alternatives introduced themselves and hopefully I’ll have more to share with you in 2014! The draw back to how busy I discovered myself is that I didn’t get almost as much content material posted as I had hoped and planned ferragamo womens shoes parts to. With this put up to kick off the brand new year, I’m going to make a concerted effort to put up more commonly and persistently.
My DIY collection has produced some of my hottest posts, so count on to see more of that.

As has become my new year’s tradition, in no particular order, listed here are my five favourite seems to be from 2013. And if you want to check out the unique post, simply click on the title.
1. The Duck Boot
Boots by L.L. Bean; Jacket by C’N’C Costume Nationwide; Sweater by Ben Sherman;
Shirt by Nautica; Chinos by Gant Rugger; Belt from Gap;
Pocket sq. by Thomas Pink; Sunglasses by Bulgari
What I love about this look is that it shows among the versatility that a utilitarian piece, like L.L. Bean’s Bean Boot can have.
2. Sample Mixing
Sweater by Rag & Bone for Neiman Marcus & Target; Shirt by Uniqlo;
Cords by Gant Rugger; Boots by AllSaints Spitalfields;
Tie by Band of Outsiders; Tie bar by Link Up; Sunglasses by Bulgari
I think one in all the reasons I preferred this shoot a lot is because I got to wear a few of my favorite items unexpectedly, and it appeared good. Don’t be afraid of mixing textures and patterns, the fitting mixture can really set you apart.
Three. Dressing For: New Year’s Eve
Jacket by Ted Baker; Trousers by Fink Clothing; Shirt by Uniqlo; Footwear by AllSaints;
Bow tie by Liberty London; Tux scarf by Dior; Pocket sq. by Salvatore Ferragamo;
Socks by Tom Ford; Laces by Allen Edmonds; Watch by Bulova
This submit was simply fun. I like getting dressed up, however hardly ever get the occasion to wear my tux scarf. The list is just about limited to formal galas, opening night of the opera, and fancy New Year’s Eve parties, so I’ll take any excuse I can get. This look was also a great example of getting a glance come collectively nearly on it’s personal. I’ve had the pants for years, so once i brought house the jacket and found that it matched virtually completely, I was tremendous excited!
Four. Season Mixing
Jacket and bag by AllSaints; Shirt and cords by Gant Rugger; Boots by John Varvatos;
Scarf by rag & bone; Watch by Nautica; Sunglasses by Marc by Marc Jacobs
This was an easy one to shoot as a result of generally an outfit just comes together and colours play completely against each other. This whole submit challenged me just a little although as a result of most individuals have seasonal outfits, so discovering stylish methods to combine seasons took some creativity, however a nicely-curated wardrobe undoubtedly helps.
5. Head-to-Toe: Ted Baker
Jacket, shirt, pants, shoes, pocket sq. & lapel pin by Ted Baker;
Sunglasses by Marc by Marc Jacobs
I like doing head-to-toe posts as a result of it makes me take a fresh have a look at my wardrobe. As a rule, a label with a transparent design aesthetic will do many of the give you the results you want. Pieces from completely different seasons and years apart will complement each other like they have been sent down the runway collectively. Ted Baker can also be one among my favourite labels because not only do the pieces have enjoyable design quirks, but their jackets are a few of the few that match me well with none alterations wanted.
6. Inspiration: Chaos to Couture
Denim vest by Levis (customized); Leather-based jacket from thrift (personalized);
Time Again band tee; Denim by Kill Metropolis; Boots by Altama; Hat from thrift;
Bandana, studded belts, leather-based bracelet from unknown/unbranded
I wanted to include this bonus look as a result of I simply really like it. I spent hours making this vest and years carrying it, so I’m glad that I received to share it on the blog.
