The Style Fundamentals

We’re constantly inspired by the seemingly effortless glamour of Hollywood (knowing that there are small armies of experts behind each outfit) and even more so with fashion and beauty blogs, as well as social media. With constantly changing trends and influences from all over, it can get overwhelming. But every morning we face our reality: a full wardrobe and nothing to wear.
