Men's column: Ricardo Felgueiras

Hope you all had a good weekend? considering how much i lamented in my previous post (here) about having to study all week to get my weekend off, it was well worth it! :)

I have exciting news ..there's going to be another column on the blog and it's going to be on men's fashion, style & and generally all things men. I've been researching & reading a lot about men's fashion since the idea was first suggested to me and i intend on making this column as exciting & informative as possible. And as you can already guess, as stable & up to date as the women's.

Whoop!! we're starting off the column with an outfit styled by Ricardo Felgueiras, the founder of TMRK. I like the jacket & i particularly love the way he's styled this outfit. It's well layered and it gives the impression/come off as effortlessly casual although it's obviously smart/formal.

In plain terms, TMRK is a platform based in the South west England to showcase all the up and coming talents in art, fashion & Music. I'm honestly impressed by the progress they've been able to make so far and far more excited for what's to come, especially in the fashion aspect of it.

 You're spoilt with choice today :)  
My friend spoke to me about writing a weekly article for the blog, which i thought was a really good idea. With the first piece which i find genuinely inspiring & real, i think i have no doubt i made a good decision. Hope you enjoy it as much as i did! :)

I need to heal, need to forgive, need to move on with my life. So for me this is more than a story this is a healing process; a process for all my wounds to heal and for me to finally leave the past in the past. I have been trying to heal for as long as I can remember now, but there have been so many obstacles in my life that have made this process long. I think about what I have been through and my heart cries for love, understanding and peace.

Winter is here!!

It's no news that winter is finally creeping in, we can all sadly feel the biting chills of it.
For many of us, it only means one thing, it's that time to invest in a quality yet fashionable winter coat. Trust me this can be a hassle, and the expeditious trends don't make it better. But as that's almost my job now (to analyse new trends & styles), i can spare you surfing the net all week or spending a hefty chunk of that student loan on buying a bad coat that you might have to wear up until June. 

So, below are some of the finest winter coat trends

1) Pink Coat- This has to be my favourite. I'm not a big fan of dull, gloomy coloured winter coats, i mean, isn't the weather gloomy enough?! I'm excited the pink coat is trending, as it's a bold & statement piece yet leaves you looking effortlessly chic. It's the easiest way to pull off that "i'm just naturally stunning and i don't need to try too hard" look.

                Ebay, £100                                           
                                                                                                        Zara £79.99

2)Parkers- They're a must have for every winer season. If you're thinking of investing in a long, trend lasting coat, parkers are the way forward. I doubt they will ever be out of trend especially for students. But i should throw in some caution, if you are not petite enough to look cute in them, i suggest you forget them and look up other winter coverings. I'm not even trying to throw shade at plump girls, as i myself i've restrained from buying them.

I learnt..

Hat: Topshop || Necklace: Zara || Skirt: Zara || Inner top: Topshop ||

As much as i've wanted to put these pictures up since it's sneak peak on my Instagram page, i've refrained from doing so because it kept looking like an outfit for winter. But as it's gotten that cold now, what better excuse can i have to upload them.

And Is anyone else reading this like me, when you really like an accessory you wear it till you wreck it? lol i'm sorry but you're going to be seeing alot of that shoe & hat, as i've seemed to have fallen in love with them.

       Also, by now you know that i love sharing some lessons & inspirations with you guys. Yesterday my devotion was partly on the story of Tamar. (If you don't know it, feel free to google 2 Samuel 13 1-14) I was indeed very furious after reading it, because this was the case of an innocent girl being raped by her half brother and she having to live as a desolate woman with her biological brother for the better part of her life. I began to question alot of things after reading it, but why would God allow that? but she didn't even deserve it? etc
It was then an inspiration came to me, God reminded me of two incidents in which i didn't deserve what i got. And it was then he made me realise, life is not a bed of roses for both believers & non-believers. And Jesus never promised for once that it will be, but what he did promise his own was that he wouldn't allow the devil tempt them more than their strength can bear. He promised the strength to overcome and if we trust him long enough, he promised to make EVERYTHING, i.e what we consider our problems, mistakes, pain, challenges etc work together for our good.
Yes, it hurts, but many atimes God requires us to trust him beyond what our feelings allow.

God Inspired.

Lots & Lots of Love,
The Aspiring Sartorialist Xx
