A Piece of Marie

So we all know that here at ohsococo we are completely obsessed with Marie. But, if you want your own piece of Miss Antoinette expect to pay a costly fee. Her tiny shoes went for a massive £36,000 on a recent auction. They were sold at a French Revolution Era Artefacts auction in Toulan, France. The indulgent queens shoes sold for more than 14 times their asking price and are believed to have been worn with a white gown and matching tricolour headpiece at the first ever Bastille Day celebration in 1790.
Of course if you cant afford the £36,000 that fan forked out, you can always try these gorgeous guys from Christian Louboutin. Based on the glorious ship Marie Antoinette wore in her hair

Ohsococo loves the pink pair especially on style icon Dita Von Teese

Dare to Bare

Ohsococo LOVES clothing with an interesting back as it makes such a statement. Check out these beautiful backless dresses to inspire you to go backless:








But going backless comes a little bit of prep:
  • No tan lines
  • Get the correct bra - no one wants an ugly bra strap cramping your style
  • Be sure to take your bra off an hour before you don your dress   - no one wants an ugly bra strap marks cramping your style either
  • Give your back a nice scrub the night and use a shimmer cream to give you a smooth and bronzed effect
  • Always remember your posture as your back will be in full view for all to see

Autumn Style Alert: SOCKS!!

This April ohsococo is totally trending on socks. Whether it be ankle socks, knee highs or thigh highs socks are ROCKING this winter. Pair some lace anklets with sandals to add some extra use to shoes that you cant normally wear in winter. You could also pair some sky high socks with a pair of stockings, thigh high boots and a coat or blazer for a super hot winter look. Its time to shine for these humble accessories <3

DRAPE this winter

With winter comes layering, layering, layering and this can be harzardous to ones style. If not done correctly it isn't always very flattering, but one way to combat this is through draping. Draping can hide a multitude of sins, especially round the tummy area and can add elegance to any outfit. For maximum effect balance your outfit out by wearing something fitting with a draped piece <3

Heres a DIY draped skirt that you can try at home

2012 Trend of the Week

TEXTURE  is in the air. A beautiful trend of 2012 are the fabulous textured dresses and skirts we have been seeing not only down the runway but also in adverts and more and more in peoples wardrobes. A textured look consists of either a dress or skirt with many different embellishments like feathers, sequins, glitter, material or tassels to glam up the item. This creates an incredibly dramatic effect that is great for a glam night out to a club, cocktail party or any posh event when only fancy will do.

So whatever the occasion a textured piece is sure to make you the centre of attention

Forever New: Available in SA


Forever New caught my eye as I walked past the shop in Canal Walk and I just had to go inside. The soft colours and textures as well as the beautiful, beautiful store layout is all very appealing to a vintage loving fashionista like me. Originally from Australia we are lucky enough to have a few stores here, although don't expect cheap prices for their gorgeous wares.

The Forever New winter collection is titled Northern Lights and embodies winter to perfection. Think fur, neutral tones, crystal and snow with graceful flowing lines. Pop into a Forever New near you. One just opened in Blue route Mall and there is talk of the brand getting stocked at Edgars soon. Also you can check out the Forever New website here.
