So, I have thought it is about time I organised my first giveaway! I am quite excited to announce that a lucky winner will be the proud owner of this vibrant canary yellow slim leather belt by Day Birger et Mikkelsen (S/M)! Sold out everywhere! The belt measures 34″ at its shortest and 37″ at the widest point. Perfect for the autumn season ahead!
Most of us are gearing their wardrobe up for autumn where layering is a must. I, however, am still holding a strong grip on the bold colour block silk tops I grew to love over the past few months.
I love a splash of colour in my outft, be it a work wear or a going-out attire. When I spotted this gorgeous ROKSANDA ILINCIC Light yellow Estes Charteuse T-shirt on matchesfashion.com I knew I had to have it.
This chartreuse-yellow silk-crepe blouse makes a bold and colourful statement. I love the contrasting grey Peter Pan collar, closely-fit round-neck with a back-neck hook and an over-sized silhouette. The juxtaposed textured silk and crepe front panel make it definitely a very interesting mix.
Create a vibrant, off-duty look and team it with leather pants and soaring heels.
I have gone with these Marc by Marc Jacobs Mirah leather trousers with skinny-leg and a horizontal knee-seam with a top button and zip front fastening. I paired it with these gorgeous Alexander Wang Maja pleated suede and patent-leather pumps to complement the look (still available on theoutnet)
The striking pleated suede, cut-out side and an open pointed toe make these pumps even more appealing, channeling Wang’s enticing nonchalance.
I put on these super cool Balenciaga round frame gunmetal tone sunglasses with dark grey lenses, to finish off the look (on sale at theoutnet). I love the grey matte finish and slightly curved dropped designer-stamped arms that give off the maverick look.
I have accessorised with my favourite Links of London sterling silver Annoushka dome amethyst drop earrings.
I have recently worn this outfit for the Bloggers Love Fashion Week Gifting Event and it was the ultimate test to its wearability! Stylish and practical – what else you need?

I can’t believe how fabulous weather we have been having here in London in September. As I have not put my summer wardrobe away just yet, here is my most likely, last glimpse into a proper summer outfit you would wear on a sunny day out with friends or to an evening party.
If you are planning to do a floral print, make sure it is ditsy and make sure it is daisy – this gorgeous and girly Boutique by Jaeger Layla daisy silk print playsuit ticks all the boxes, clean and contemporary lines combined with the playful print will get you stand out from the crowd.
Boutique by JAEGER is the edgy and cool sister of the British heritage brand Jaeger. I love JAEGER’s timeless cuts and smart tailoring for the office but if you are after an offbeat yet classic look with an eclectic edge Boutique by JAEGER is the brand to go to.
I styled the playsuit with this cute waist-accentuating L.K. Bennett Selina taupe belt and pin-perfecting Zara combined suede ankle sandals with golden metallic stiletto heel. I must say, the gold heel tone plates bring about a certain je ne sais quoi!
They are both eternally cool and stylish. This season, I am very much in love with the ankle strap heels, from my favourite Alexander Wang to Stuart Weitzman to Guiseppe Zanotti and to ZARA, there is something liberating and ultra chic about them. Create a tousled hair look and off you go!
I accessorised my ensemble with the MALLARINO Mercedes gold-plated filigree earrings. These intricate drop earrings by the Paris based label are hand made using the ancient technique of filigree where each piece is hand sawn from gold plated metal into a multitude of embellished shapes!
Only these funky Fendi Havana tortoiseshell oversized shades to put on and I am ready to catch the rays!

On Monday, 15th September I attended the Bloggers Love Fashion Week Gifting Event organised by Danielle from Bloggers Love at The Penthouse on Leicester Square. The event saw both aspiring and established brands showcasing their designs, clothing, handbags, accessories and jewellery lines and as the name of the event suggests, a vast number of giveaways was in place! I got a lovely goodie bag with great hair products from shoprush.
The event attracted so many bloggers and fashionistas promoting their styles and trends too!
As it was a perfect opportunity to dress up I chose this gorgeous ROKSANDA ILINCIC Estes Charteuse T-shirt in Light Yellow I snapped from matchesfashion.com and Marc Jacobs Mirah black leather trousers. I paired them with Emporio Armani grey leather and snake skin pumps and JAEGER quilted leather bag.
The evening was super busy with bloggers and brands alike, chatting away, discussing their collections and taking photos.
I have met so many up-and-coming designers with their eye catching lines. I loved the green-themed silk scarves from BYMY.
The gorgeous print, combined with silky feel and hand rolled edges makes them even more striking.
I liked the laser cut leather edgy clutches by Nadia Minkoff. This very British label set up in 1988 prides themselves on using the finest leathers, innovative techniques and vintage inspired designs with a modern twist.
Nadia’s layered statement necklaces are equally, inspiring and oozing understated charm.Cataleya London is yet another fabulous bag label, deriving its name from the queen of orchids, the brand was set up by a British Designer, Reeru Rai in 2013. Her beautifully crafted bags exude luxury, femininity and function. My absolute favourite was this red Italian patent crocodile embossed leather tote.Fuschia White is also a brand new fashion boutique set up by two sisters, Lubaina and Lamya Karimjee.
What I liked about their collection was pastel hues, shiny PVC and feminine yet simple lines. My ultimate favourite was this powder blue PVC midi skirt.Jo Morton’s Valour & Valkyrie collection did catch my attention as well! I took liking to her fairy tale themed, vintage inspired, digital print blouses and jewelled jumpers. I love the “Scandinavian-like” brand name that somehow resonates with its whimsical and enchanting designs.
I love Tinkilove by Maria-Katharina Richters. I met Maria on a few occasions in the past and I am a fan of her fresh and bold designs with classic feminine elements, very wearable yet versatile.
She is also a creative spark behind Capturelove, yet another label she launched retailing exclusive designer caps with imaginative illustrations, creative drawings and intricate designs.
Kisses from Coco is an online fashion boutique with a hefty supply of contemporary, playful yet stylish accessories, clothing, bags and jewellery.
I loved this gorgeous white shirt and feather and crystal – embellished neck piece!As the only representative of the male fashion market, Suave 101 Apparel, certainly stood out.
My husband, who is also my blog photographer loved his bold and distinctive T-shirt design. Established in 2013 by Jack Simmons, Suave 101 is an urban London brand retailing exclusive and high quality designs aimed at a fashion forward male crowd. Check them out!
There were so many other brands I saw but did not have a chance to speak with including Shibue Couture and Sabella Collection.
I must admit, the event was buzzing with excitement and I had a great time talking to brands and other bloggers!
Summer’s super stylish one-piece playsuit is a fun way to stay easy and breezy, with endless ways to accessorise, it creates “the look” with minimal effort. This Twenty8Twelve by Sienna Miller Ava Playsuit in Watercolour Print Silk is my absolute favourite romper for a casual day out. I love the way the fabric and silhouette transforms with the changing light making it a perfect evening outfit too. The playsuit features interesting snap-fastening cuffs that you can roll up or down to suit you and drawstring waist.
Twenty8Twelve by Sienna Miller exemplifies some cool London style, from perfect work jackets to the weekend rock-chic printed tops, vintage-inspired dresses, sharp tailoring and superb knits.
Catch some rays in these funky Fendi purple shades, I love the geometric plastic frames and purple lenses, so retro!
I have chosen these Kute Carvela Kurt Geiger gold open toe leather bow sandals to complement the look. As the name suggests they are oh-so-cute, not to mention, versatile and practical. You just don’t want to take them off!
Would you rock this look?
So we are inevitably coming to the end of summer which makes it my objective to feature as many of the beautiful light and summery outfits as possible. Today, I am featuring my last assemble from the recent trip to Paris and I am rocking these gorgeous Theory Caslyn cotton skort. The Nautical stripes beautifully enhance the fresh look of a crisp yet stretchy skort and I love a cutaway front.I can’t believe how flattering they are and how the trapezoid line cut makes them so gorgeously slimming. Theory is a New York based label known for its contemporary sleek designs. I love it for luxuriously simple and quality pieces full of style.There is something intrinsically comforting about a white Tee, simple, versatile and worn with ease. I put a spin on this unassuming design and went for this lovely See by Chloe T-shirt with a black print crochet-like collar.
See By Chloe’s beautifully cut basics epitomise effortlessly chic everyday designs with French attitude. Look out for playful cuts, printed tops and colourful accessories. Wear it teamed with cotton or silk skirts or monochrome shorts for a cool and casual look.Love Moschino Beige & Gold Charming Peace Sign Print Bag is one of my favourite summer totes. You can pretty much carry around everything you need in this colourful silk beauty.
The bag features gold-tone woven chain handles and inside, design simplicity rules with just one zipped interior pocket. If you are after funky yet stylish bag, Love Moschino is certainly the brand to go to.
I have a few investment pieces in my shoe collection and these Alexander Wang glossed leather Masha mules are exactly that, cool, classy and timeless.
What is your favourite piece from this outfit? I would love to know x

As we are well into New York Fashion Week and fast approaching our own in London, I went couture with this most stunning Vionnet draped leather and jersey-crepe dress in storm blue, still available on THE OUTNET.
Vionnet is a Paris based haute couture label set up in 1912 known for its gorgeous fluid draping, colour block dresses and oversized bows.
Answering to the effortless Parisian elegance, the dress features beautiful draped hook-fastening lamb leather panel gathered in the front and a concealed zip on a side. I love the weight of the the crepe stretchy fabric and the way it flows when on.
I picked my fauvorite Alexander Wang Lovisa embossed black leather pumps to complement the look, still available at matchesfashion.
They are the most stylish and comfortable heels I own, that’s probably why I am a proud owner of these beauties in three different colours including blood orange and peroxide white! These Lovisa pumps are made from embossed back stingray leather and feature a sleek ankle strap, both practical and chic, it will seamlessly take you from season to season.
I simply adore the stiletto high pointed toe with t-strap and a side buckle fastening that transforms this classic style into something utterly modern. You can walk miles in them without blisters!
Talking accessories, I went with the Rupert Sanderson Niella patent cow leather clutch in black and navy.
This matches the dress perfectly and creates a fantastic colour harmony. The bag features a lovely navy leather trim, snap fastening front flap and weighted bar detail. Inside, the internal zipped and patch pockets make the most of the available space. I love the mushroom suede lining as well!
To finish my demure look, I put on these super cool Balenciaga round frame gunmetal tone sunglasses with dark grey lenses.
I love the grey matte finish and slightly curved dropped designer-stamped arms that give off the maverick look.

Dreary weather inevitably dampens my spirits – particularly when the downpour unleashes itself onto my newly blown dry hair – but instead of following the suit and dressing in black and grey, combat the gloom by adding a splash of colour to your outfit.
On my Paris weekend getaway I took a walk on the wild side of Boutique by Jaeger by wearing these fierce multi-coloured 60-ties inspired Leopard print trousers, still available at Jaeger website at a very reasonable price of £29.
They are perfectly cropped and tailored to a very flattering fit and I really like the pure cotton feel and purple/orange hues infused to the print.
Injecting the colour might not make the sun come out but sporting a fun hue certainly keeps things playful and is the coolest way to combat rainy blues.
I wore them with a monochrome bow T-shirt from Topshop I bought some time ago. This very simple yet striking top always goes a long way when I just don’t want to try too hard. While, the bow makes it cute and girly, matched with these fabulous trousers it unchains fun and fierce look.
My shoe choice was L.K. Bennett – these Selina Mock Croc high heeled courts are simply gorgeous redefining glamour.
The utterly modern silhouette is complemented by the fresh interpretation of the classic bow design that just dazzles.
