Peach Perfect

I am playing with pastels again! Check it out!

Don’t just sprinkle a bit of pastel here and there around the edges of your clothes. Dive right in, and go pastel head to toe with one bright colour.

If you end up with a glut, you can always keep it in the deep-freeze section of your wardrobe:)

MAWI – LFW15

So here comes my last London Fashion Week post! I have written a lot about jewellery at LFW Designer Showrooms however, I wanted to pay special attention to MAWI – one of my go-to statement jewellery brands.

IMG_3298a
Mawi Keivom and Tim Awan founded their brand 2002 at London Fashion Week. Designer Keivom customized one of her necklaces with jewels and vintage touches –
inspiring an entire collection of similar products. Since its launch, the costume jewellery and accessories brand has collaborated with Disney Couture, Swarovski and Selfridges  maintaining the nostalgic yet contemporary style they have come to be known for.

MAWI speaks about their pieces as ‘ornamental meeting places for the past, present and future’. Each piece is both contemporary and vintage-inspired which means these vibrant accessories will continue to be stylish for years to come.
I have been painstakingly collecting their rings and necklaces for years now but my most treasured pieces come from Deco Noir, Metropolis and Rebel Romance collections.

If you feel it is your bling day, go with the Rebel Royal collection and show off that urban glamour. Mix things up with the Emerals Slogan Charm necklace or just add a pinch of glamour with the Rubies earrings, or a cool, in-your-face Ruby bling-tastic ring.

Rings were particularly enticing with their gorgeous gem clusters.
It was great fun trying on new designs! I particularly loved this extended flexible ring which design offers movement to the precious stones and looks just breathtaking!

Check out these unique clutch bags whose fans include Madonna and other celebrities!
How fabulous is this Burgundy DEALER clutch bag made of embossed calf-leather and Swarovski Crystals!

Set either in glossy bordeaux or jet black, showcasing fearless punk rock detail and diamante slogans – THIEF and DEALER. Handbag or clutch? They are certainly not for the faint-hearted!
a

I loved these lush quilted velvet and furry clutches highlighting golden sun-ray shaped surface detail, with spikes and rock clusters bursting outwards from the core.
Pretty and colorful, these clutches will brighten up any outfit.
a

Jewels were layered with smaller sections making room for chunky statement tiers creating exceptionally detailed and bold pieces.
 In true Mawi style the collection boast a series of individual collections, each with their own influences and aesthetics; from gold bunnies to rebellious city glamour. The playful ‘BUNNY LOVE’  collection presented a cute alternative to Mawi’s signature decadently rocking jewels.

You see bunnies leaping across structured bangles and dropping from shimmering earrings and pendants, I love their creepy smiles!

This season Mawi introduced a new addition to their impressive collections – slinky silk and cashmere knitwear, shimmering with glitter slogans shouting ”THIEF’, ‘DEALER’ and ‘SAPPHIRES’. 
 These little gems are sure to be on every sartorialists wish list.

Bloggers Love Hub event – 3rd November – Mahiki

On Monday, 3rd November I attended Bloggers Love Hub event organised by Danielle at the celebrity hotspot – Mahiki in London. The event brought together a number of fabulous brands and bloggers.

P1060062

The event brought together a number of fabulous brands and bloggers. The idea behind the get-together was for the bloggers to chat, exchange tips and meet with up-and-coming brands, of course.

I decided to wear this vibrant green Rokanda Ilinicic skirt and JOSEPH navy cashmere cropped jumper I featured recently on the blog.I teamed the outfit with this 3.1 Phillip Lim Minute clutch Bag in a demure midnight navy and these CHLOÉ calf leather two tone Moccasins. I popped on my favourite Links of London Watch Over Me necklace to finish the look.

P1060087

There were the familiar faces like Yukimi Yau and Nadja Baxter.

P1060060

P1060107

I had a chance to meet Katherine Foot, the founder of GlowBeads. She showcased the most gorgeous sets of necklaces wand bracelets in the most vibrant of colours that glow when light hits them!

P1060068

Featured in the UK Vogue Magazine, the brand features funky, eye catching and modern pieces of jewellery, perfect for parties, presents and weddings! Check it out!

The central part of the event was the fashion show orchestrated by Eva Cammarata – a womenswear designer who already showcased in New York, London and Paris. Her collection exploded with bold colours and unique textiles, and digital prints.

My favourite piece was the unusual calf-length, strapless print knit dress.

P1060117

One of the beauty brands I really liked was the Charcoal-Spa. Represented by Claire Hultton, the make offers a fantastic range detoxifying skin products including the salt scrubs, face masks and soaps that cleanse skin removing the daily built-up of impurities. Beautifully packaged, they make a perfect present!

P1060079

I love leather so D-Jewelsus – up and coming brand was right up my alley. The label offers beautifully crafted leather jewellery & accessory designs and custom-made ones.

P1060112

P1060113

I loved the colour blocking trapezoid pieces as well the combination of leather with calf skin. These show stopping designs will certainly get you to stand out from the crowd!

P1060111

I also had a chance to meet Byron Rawlings from The Blogger Programme – the largest social platforms for bloggers, brands and publishers that facilitates initial contact and collaboration.

Later on I met one of the most amazing and experienced bloggers and U-Tubers – Leanne Lim Walker who was full of good advice for a fairly new blogger like myself. All the tips and feedback were greatly appreciated!
P1060129

It was fantastic to meet other amazing bloggers including MelonLady, Bumascloset and Dora Fashion Space. Thank you for a lovely chat, ladies!

It was a fab evening and I am now looking forward to meeting new people at the next Bloggers Love Hub event tomorrow!

September Farewell – Richard Nicoll two tone teal dress

October is officially here! But hey, it is not cold yet so I am capitalising on my ever-expanding summer wardrobe as I took the walk down the picturesque Sundridge Manor Park.

P1040249

P1040176

P1040183

P1040100

I am sending the summer away in this gorgeous two-tone jacquard dress from Richard Nicoll featuring a sleeveless design, plain waive with straight hem and a paneled colour block that I picked up on Yoox sale.

P1040102

I love its closely cut fit and the vibrant light green hue combined with the calming grey waist band. This is a kind of dress that would work perfectly well for a chilled out meet-up with friends when both style and comfort do matter.

P1040105

I love the fact that you don’t have to try hard with this dress, it is ready to wear and utterly versatile.

P1040110

P1040113

Just add a pair of pumps, jacket off you go. I went with this gorgeous JAEGER wool & cashmere blend grey blazer. I find it so stylish and functional!

P1040277

Wear it, like myself, with the summer dress or mix it in into your work wear with a silky blouse and a pair of tailored trousers.

P1040279

I love Michael Kors designs so to finish off the look I slipped into those cute Michael Kors suede leather pumps.

P1040129

I love the unusual V shape around the toe and a multi-faceted cone-line chunky heel. 

P1040135

P1040138

P1040141

P1040144

I could not forget my sunglasses on such a lovely and bright day and I opted for these lovely Balenciaga Square frame acetate sunglasses I got from theOutnet (still available on sale!).

P1040198

I am such a fun of the teal frames, graded lenses and funky cut-out Balenciaga stamped arms. These glasses will definitely get you noticed! Rock them with leather for the wow factor.

P1040206

P1040209

P1040212

P1040116
Finally, I accesorised with my favourite Links of London sweetie bracelet and Karabiner Bangle.
