Taking the City lane

A few weeks back I headed up to the City for the Lord Mayor’s show and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to take pics for my new post in different surroundings. London has got so many of those hidden gem locations to offer and I am about to embark on a journey to discover and feature as many of them as I can!

I have opted to wear this statement Double Faced Pink Apricot Wrap Coat by JAEGER. I love the warm peachy/pink hue juxtaposed against a sumptuous dove grey wool. This stunning coat is made of 100% wool and mid-length style design gives it a dramatic silhouette. What a fabulous way of injecting colour to your autumn wardrobe!

I bought the coat last year so it is no longer available in stores but still loving the way it feels and looks on!
I am very much into soft grey these days so I chose to accessorize my coat with this beautiful cashmere scarf by British heritage brand Johnstons of Elgin. The label has been creating the finest woolen and cashmere clothing and accessories since 1797 and this scarf is a timeless classic. Made from the most luxurious cashmere, it epitomises minimalist chic and is the perfect addition to any winter outfit!

I put the feminine elegance of the coat against Stella McCartney Zip-trimmed faux leather ankle boots for an unexpected shot of glamour and edge. I love black ankle booties because they are so easy to wear with any assemble. I picked the pair from Outnet some time ago but I still receive so many complements on how lovely they look on. I particularly like the gold zip fastening at the back and almond toe and gold sole.

 Gerard Darel is another bag designer I absolutely adore. This Bahia Simple Bag is essentially every woman’s minimalist dream. As the name indicates, the simple bag completely eradicates all the unnecessary design elements imposed upon most of the ‘it bag’. It comes in the most chic and cool of colours with an added timeless feel to it. I love the black leather exterior with the luxury burgundy suede inside. What I find wonderful about it is that it literally holds all my essentials and you still have plenty of room left, perfect for the fast paced ‘tote fan’! The leather has got a slightly rough look but it is unbelievably smooth which adds to its striking character.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!
