West Surrey Style is changing!

Title! West Surrey Style is changing from a beauty and lifestyle blog into a more fashion and business focused resource. I am working on restarting my fashion business now that the world is opening up a little more, and it made sense to combine it with the blog. So this means that The Outfit Angel,Continue reading “West Surrey Style is changing!”

The importance of comfortable shoes

I’ve blogged about this before, I’m sure I have, but it’s about time for an update. I’m getting older. We all are. Time marches on and there comes a point when your body, specifically your spine and your feet, say ‘no more’. No more what? No more shoes that leave your feet in agony. I’mContinue reading “The importance of comfortable shoes”

Autumn fashion staples

Tis Autumn, the season of golden leaves, pumpkin spice lattes and all the things I love about the world. Autumn is my favourite season. I can legitimately leave behind all the worries about heat exhaustion and not owning enough pairs of shorts and dive into my tried and true autumn staples.

I can’t believe it’s not designer!

Anyone who loves fashion will have an item they really want to own. For me, it’s two items – a pair of Valentino Rockstud flats and an Aspinal bag.

Basics: Black Flats

We’ve all seen those lists of ‘ten things a woman needs in her wardrobe’ or ‘key pieces’ that the magazines and the experts think everyone should have. I personally like them, as they give people an outline of things that form the backbone of a wardrobe that they can then select the correct variation fromContinue reading “Basics: Black Flats”

Autumn/Winter Fashion Trends

It’s September. Summer is done, and we’re all back at work and school, our vacation days on a sunny Spanish beach just a hazy memory and a collection of slightly blurred Facebook photos. It’s also the month when the autumn/winter fashion really takes over the shops, and the September issues of the fashion magazines areContinue reading “Autumn/Winter Fashion Trends”

Finding Footwear: The Minefield of Shoes

Let me be the first to confess that I, in my youth, made some horrible choices of footwear. I used to wear those awful platform trainer made popular by The Spice Girls. I had a pair of ‘goth’ boots that were the comfiest things in the world but made me look like I wanted toContinue reading “Finding Footwear: The Minefield of Shoes”
