Style in the City Week 2 - Satisfashion Blog

10 April 2014

A great day styling on Saturday.  Luckily the weather didn’t put the girls off shopping but I think the boys thought they were made of sugar and the rain would melt them away so went into hiding either that or they preferred the Grand National to shopping –Ladies you did not disappoint but Gentlemen step up for next week.

This week we found some really unique individual looks here are a couple of the looks we recreated. This week we have a beard and some bold colour pops check out our Week 2 Stylish residents:
