Just as a horoscope is a short prediction of future events based on the relative positions of the stars and planets at the time of a person’s birth - and we make no judgment if you do or don’t believe. Much...!
So with this in mind, we at emmaheaven.com have decided to consult with the Fashion gods (yes they do really exist) to see what fashion and beauty looks are essential for your star sign every month.
Failure to comply with your ‘fashionscope’ may result in us calling the fashion police to arrest you for a sense of humour failure and inability to take the mick out of yourself and your wardrobe!
Fashion and beauty should be fun - life’s way too short, so let’s get a grip and don’t take it - or ourselves - too seriously!
You’re feeling the urge to reconnect with your life, or at least life as you knew it. Oh how you long to walk into a shop, hunting for hidden treasure amongst the shelves and racks of clothes, especially when they have those lovely big SALE signs blazing across the store; drawn to the shiny handbags and shoes like a moth to a flame, while trying them on and mentally pairing them with a fabulous outfit. Alas, instead, you are masked and gloved to the hilt, queuing in a one way system, unable to touch, just look, point, and pay. It’s such a faff that you abandon your endeavours and head home where you can shop online, glass of plonk in hand, in comfort, and wait for the goodies to arrive, and have yourself a mini fashion parade. #LosingTheWillToShop
You keep asking yourself “what is it you really want to do?” Life has been oh so strange since lockdown and there are no signs that it will resemble anything like normal, anytime soon! So suck it up sister. It’s time to make the best of a bad situation. We know everyone is worried about this social-distancing rule thingamajiggy, but let’s think outside the box! Ladies, it’s time to get your tutu on! These lovely skirts are so vast, with multiple layers of tulle, that by the time you slip into one, nobody will come within several feet of you anyway! It’s a bold fashion statement. AND they hide a multitude of sins (excess lockdown pounds) - so it’s a WIN-WIN in our eyes. #BallerinaBabe
Life will present you with lots of opportunities this month, but do remember to pace yourself. You no longer have the social stamina sweetie to undertake whole weekends of dressing up, drinking, AND socialising. The most you’ve managed in the last four months is a Saturday evening boxset marathon, dressed in your finest lounge suit, whilst Zooming friends with a chilled bottle or two of plonk. All from the comfort of your home. And then, feeling rather the worse for wear, you’ve only had to negotiate the stairs, before falling into bed - changing into nightwear optional! Failing that, you’ve just crashed on the sofa, and slumbered til dawn. So PLEASE, please, please, ease yourself in gently. #GoingOutIsAWholeNewBallGame
This month you need to add some extra flourishes to your outfit. Change things up a bit and harness the power of ACCESSORIES. These all important extras are what can make or break an outfit. They can elevate something ordinary and turn it into a spectacular fashion moment. HOWEVER...please apply caution or just use plain old common sense and remember that good old-fashioned saying of ‘less is more’, when you realise you can't lift your arms thanks to the 30-plus chunky bangles weighing down your wrists. You’re trying to make a fashion statement sweetie, not train for the world's strongest woman title! #AccessoriseNotExercise
You are on a complex mission and you don’t want it to get the better of you duckie. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will your fashion/image overhaul be the stuff made of legends within 24 hours! Studying will only get you so far. You need a natural flare for fashion darling; and if your final ensemble resembles a table top more at home at in a jumble sale, then the only option - albeit a very expensive one - open to you, is to hire your very own stylist, otherwise you could be forever doomed to failure in the glorious world of fashion, becoming a legend, but for all the wrong reasons! Don’t worry. It’s not mission impossible - just look at it as a worthwhile investment in yourself. Your future depends on it! #NothingWorthHavingComesEasy
Give yourself permission to dress the way you want. You don’t need to conform to society sweetie. You are a FASHIONISTA and you will dress how you want, when you want, and where you want. Obviously there could be a few pitfalls along the way, so do your research or you could turn up at a casual bash wearing a full-blown cocktail gown and tiara; although it is better to be overdressed than underdressed! Not even a supermodel could confidently pull that off without everyone having a good giggle behind their back. That said, your uber-glam look could go viral, giving you your 15 minutes of fame, but would you want to waste your 15 minutes on that kind of fashion faux pas? #UseFameWisely
Your finances are looking pretty good. After the savings you have made during lockdown, it’s now time to reap the rewards of your mega cash stash, and put it to good use. Your wardrobe! YESSSSS, we can now go out and socialise - within reason - so what’s needed is a fab new ‘I’m free’ selection of outfits, and don’t forget to accessorise! There are sales and bargains galore, and you will be spoilt for choice; so choose wisely. No silly spur of the moment splurges. Make that cash and wardrobe work for you. Your clothes need to be worn on your body, not forever dangling on hangers! #MoreBangForYourBuck
Did you get out of the wrong side of the bed today, little Ms grumpy pants? Turn that frown upside down and embrace the madness that is life’s ‘new normal’. We know that every day brings new challenges, as the guidance becomes increasingly confusing with each news bulletin. However, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Or grab the salt and tequila! Now that Zoom meetings are being replaced with actually seeing people in real life, it’s a time to rejoice, not despair! You can finally start dressing from head to toe again, rather than dress from the waist upwards. Ditch those trackie bottoms and rediscover your smart attire and fashion mojo! #FittedWaistsHereWeCome
Step away from the computer! It’s time to address your online shopping addiction and get it under control. Yes, we fully understand the need to purchase lovely new shiny items for your ever-growing wardrobe, HOWEVER, if you continue to look at the screen for much longer, you WILL get square eyes and fatigue; not to mention the massive headache of sweet-talking your bank manager into allowing you to be able to subsist for the next few weeks. We know fashion is your priority, but a gal has still gotta live too! Our bodies NEED quality food to function well - it won’t hurt to put off buying another ‘to die for’ handbag for another month - a gal cannot survive on noodles and budget-price biscuits alone. They also play havoc with your skin! #YourBodyIsATemple
You have a goal - losing that Covid-stone you gained during lockdown. This needs a proper plan and supervision sweetie. Do you need a wingman, or are you confident you can go it alone? Can you stay motivated? Or will you nosedive into the nearest takeaway and bottle of plonk? Have you incentivised yourself with a magnificent outfit to strut your stuff in once you’ve achieved your goal? Or is your wardrobe now awash with lounge suits? Do you have that all important social event planned for your chrysalis moment? Or will you continue having a social life via FaceTime? You can go for gold, or resign yourself to a lifetime of elasticated waists! #ActionsSpeakLouderThanWords
Stop feeding the monster that is social media. You’re totally exhausted (and bordering on skint!) from the endless posing to fuel your online ‘life’. Your bank cards are maxed out, and your wardrobe is bursting at the seams from all your purchases to keep up an affluent facade. Newsflash: IT’S NOT REAL LIFE sweetie. As lockdown eases, try living in the real world again. Get a grip and step away from your phone. Try interacting with real people - remember those? They can be fun! How about going outside and breathing some fresh air. It’s good for you and it’s totally FREE. Get ready to toast a new way of life. Cheers. Ours is a large G&T. #DigitalDetox
Masks at the ready - it’s time for some socially-distanced socialising. Embrace the ‘new going out normal’. However, remember sweetie that you are a fashionista and no ordinary facemask is going to be acceptable for you. We’re thinking crystals, diamantés, studs, sequins or maybe a little tie-dye. ANYTHING except plain boring dull colours. Leave that to the ‘civilians’ who have little or no interest in fashion. The more outrageous and over-the-top your outfit is, the more you will stand out from the crowd. You have been stuck inside with nowhere to go for far too long and you’re ready to break free in spectacular style. #DontHideBehindYourMask
