When I say pin-up what do you think? I think curls, glam and hair accessories!

Style says who you are.

Rachel Zoe once said 'Style says who you are, without having to speak it' so what is your fashion style? Chic, Bohemian, Vintage or Goth? I believe fashion can create a story or a theme, I also believe fashion can create the assumption of one's personality to strangers. For example, you have a western style so you might be drawn to rodeo. There are many styles out there, to be honest I didn't realise how many styles there were until I began Formal Formula. I truly think it is wonderful and I respect those who wear a particular style because it speaks who they are and because of this I have decided to change a few things with Formal Formula. Every 3 months I will be focusing on a different...

Revival of the Corset

The corset, a statement piece that when dressed correctly can achieve a stunning stand out look that channels vintage tastes and style. The origin of the corset is unknown, however some preserved corset shaped items date back to the 16th Century, although the corset didn't present as a fashion accessory until the 18th Century.
