2nd Take’s week in review – Fashion and Franchise news

2nd Take’s past week – we take a 2nd look

We started out with a motto that would keep us going though tough times, like when we have to choose the Fashion items to style our mannequins 😉

“Success in never final, failure is never fatal. It is courage that counts”

Winston Churchhill

We took inspiration for our fashion choices from the 4ht of July, celebrations – Independence Day!

2nd Take was not alone celebrating 4th of July, America’s Independence Day. Although an American national Holiday, many countries adopted the fashion culture aspect of this day.

Still don’t know what we mean? Here are example of how we have taken this day and incorporated it into our closets and fashion styles.

Look of the week

We had a 04th of July inspired Look, styling with the colours of the American flag red, white and blue.

This week in fashion news

Look great this winter by following these new fashion trends for the season. We decided that this week its all about wearing the right colours, but the Fashion Designers have incorporated fabulous colours in their winter designs. Wear some of these colours and you will be in trend this winter:

Dark red and Purple
We have seen varying degrees of dark red and purple items this winter, and we have to admit, we love seeing these colours blended together.
50 Shades of Grey
Grey is back in a big way! This winter, achieve a warm and cosy feel with choosing clothing items in the colour grey, another benefit is that grey goes with almost everything.
Camel and sand
This winter we have been seeing a lot of leather, cardigans, shoes and bags in this beautiful versatile camel colour.
Fun fashion quote for the week!
“Costume jewellery is not made to give women a feeling of wealth but to make them beautiful.” –Emma Watson.
