Throwback to Pastel

Don’t you just love coming back to the things you just cannot leave at the back of your wardrobe? Today I went for this chic combo of heavier leather pleat texture & bubble gum and sky blue pastels.

Peachy Summer Corals

If you ever find yourself stuck in a style rut, playing with colour combinations is a perfect way to liven up your wardrobe. Today I have combed peach and brown. The soft pastel-hued peach gives off a summery and feminine vibe and when combined with the neutral, yet sturdy brown, creates outfits that are both chic and perfectly balanced.

In the land of grey and pink

Today featuring something for a chillier day….

Flowing coats are one of my favourite outerwear in-between the seasons. This  JAEGER reversible herringbone wool coat has certainly got the air of casual insouciance and it weighs so little, it can be tossed over the shoulders like a shawl – I love its astonishing versatility and flattering fit.

IMG_6400

IMG_6388

Cloud-soft and lightweight, the double-faced grey wool coat is perfect for making an easy transition into a warmer season. Designed to a wrap-around silhouette with a waist-cinching belt, this chic piece is reversible – giving you two tones of grey- cloudy and slightly darker herringbone – to choose from.

IMG_6452

IMG_6348

I wore it with one of my favourite 3.1 Phillip Lim duo: Wool blend mini-skirt and chic grey jumper.

IMG_6495

I love the structured look of this lilac white nylon shell skirt with contrasting flocked wool pattern throughout.

Fluffy lilac grid adds texture and gives the boxy-cut skirt a contemporary spin.

IMG_6499

3.1 Phillip Lim Cash Only Terry Sweater is a cool statement piece for a laid-back style…

IMG_6462

Slim-fitted heathered grey cotton sweater with ribbed round neck, cuffs and hemline, dropped shoulder seams and black raised ”CASH ONLY” textured lettering is a fun way to go about!

I accesorised with Jil Sander‘s sleek and sophisticated and roomy luxe appeal tote. This grape leather tote has been crafted in Italy with a green leather-lined interior and detachable shoulder strap, equipped with multiple pockets to keep your essentials in check, double top handles and protective feet.  Complete with stamped branding and a top zip, your workwear looks will be given an instant lift.

IMG_6422

This tote certainly offers an immaculate finish for all four seasons.

The final touches are JAEGER patent grey leather heels with a cute burgundy ribbon and pink sunglasses.

Cutting edge print and digital extravaganza

Thanks to digital printing fashion designers have more freedom to be creative with textiles and fashion than ever before. The attention grabbing digital prints steal the spotlight at many a fashion show.
As a true fan of Mary Katrantzou surreal designs I decided to go all digital print!
I genuinely think this is the coolest leather jacket I own to date. I picked up this Mary Katrantzou Rodizo printed leather biker jacket on NET-A-PORTER sale (now unfortunately sold out).

Made in Italy from mid-weight leather, this off-white biker jacket features a notched collar with snapped lapel, an eye-catching graphic blue print alongside the sleeves. I love the unusual monochrome twirled buckled waist belt.

I absolutely adore the emerald, metallic green and gunmetal shades that go so well with the jacket.
An opulent medley of metallic embroidery and silk is not only super stylish but also edgy and chic.

I added statement See by Chloe off-white T-strap chunky heel pumps for a touch of elegance.
They perfectly balance grunge and ladylike style with elegant T-bar detailing, chunky heel and delicate ankle strap. I love the green welt piping too!

It is a much coveted and instantly recognisable cult bag featuring a classic satchel form with rock chic style including zinc studded base and peppermint pebbled-leather  The iconic bristle studded hardware and duffle-like shape give this fashionista must-have a very sought-after look.
For a hands-free style, carry it by the optional shoulder strap.
I love the signature dog clips and the exterior zipped gusset/pocket for smaller items.
Stylish, minimalist and practical, what else do you need?

The perfect dress

What is a perfect dress? Short, long, fitted, loose, to me, the perfect dress takes many forms and shapes but they all have one common denominator – once you slip into it, it is like your second skin. Even without accessorising, you instantaneously feel like a million dollars and that’s what it’s all about!

IMG_1019

This Alexander Wang Micro-paisley jacquard dress is one of my perfect dresses.
Simple cut, gorgeous burgundy silk-blend paisley jacquard print and comfy feel make it a cool, new-season cocktail dress.The shoulders are slightly padded to make a statement at the long sleeves and the side-seam pockets give it a sporty feel.

Add chic court heels to complete the look.
Gianvito Rossi‘s pumps are timeless so go for it and mirror Cinderella enchantment with these Plexi clear PVC heels. Panelled with two tone, black and Bordeaux patent leather and transparent sides, this pair is a charming complement for both your office and off-duty styles.
Gianvito Rossi says that “the real luxury of shoes lies in the pleasure of slipping them on” and these pumps are without a doubt an epitome of this statement oozing sophistication and femininity.

The Wang Way

Alexander Wang is one of the most dropped names in fashion circles admired for mixing cutting-edge designs with a laid-back attitude. I love Alexander Wang’s style for blending classic and refined silhouettes with an industrial edge, innovative cut and urban sensibility. His clothes are at all times luxurious, but also provocative, inspiring and wearable.

I opted for this style-meets-function statement-making Alexander Wang dark-gray wool-blend twill coat with weather-ready collar I picked up at Net-a-Porter.

IMG_1141

IMG_1165

IMG_1177

The utility pocket was a major detail on the Alexander Wang A/W14 runway, and this cargo coat comes fully equipped, designed to hold all your daily life essentials.  It is finished with a neon-green corduroy collar and multiple, moulded pockets and a lightly padded quilted neon yellow lining.

IMG_1181

IMG_1253

IMG_1100

IMG_1233

I love the structured shoulders and a boxy cut that I balanced with these show-stopping Lys Polished leather ankle boots also by Alexander Wang.

There is something incredibly satisfying about wearing his heels, not only does Wang create most coveted accessories each season, but this time he also incorporates the runaway’s utilitarian feel injecting a dose of futuristic style into otherwise, daily-wear pieces.
These super cool Lys boots are crafted from polished-leather with an exaggerated, shield-like front panel. Finished with a well-balanced ostrich-effect heel, this backless,  gorgeous pair look best with shorter hemlines.

To finished off my Wang look, I went for Rocco Dumbo textured-leather tote I picked up from theOutnet.

It is a much coveted and instantly recognisable cult bag featuring a classic satchel form with rock chic style including silver studded base and red pebbled-leather  The iconic bristle studded hardware and duffle-like shape give this fashionista must-have a very sought-after look,
For a hands-free style, carry it by the optional shoulder strap.

When cashmere meets wool

“Baby, it is cold outside” is certainly the new London theme tune right now as it got really chilly out here.

I am the last person to welcome the wintry blasts but before I settle comfortably into my cosy shearling coats and knee high boots, there are a couple of less heavy-duty outfits I would like to share.
When it comes to knits, cashmere is the king, this ultra soft fabric is a symbol of opulence and unparalleled comfort.

I have found this lovely Marc by Marc Jacobs cashmere tulle frill neck jumper on one of recent wanders at the local TX Maxx in the City. Trust Marc By Marc Jacobs to inject this wardrobe classic with a fun feminine twist giving the essential plain black sweater a fashion-forward update! Amp it up with the optional tulle collar when the mood takes you!
The collar is button detachable and features semi-sheer polka dot tulle frill embellishment.

P1050701

P1050698

P1050710

P1050816

I love contrasting and complementing colours and colour blocking is one of my favourite styles so I opted for this gorgeous JAEGER Italian Melton wool Pencil Skirt in fabulous oxblood. This beautifully cut pencil skirt with a smooth waistband and split at the front and back is so figure skimming and a must for the office or evening drinks. It looks equally marvelous with a silk blouse!

I kicked the outfit off with a pair of Preen for Aldo Pravda Rise pumps featuring a pointy toe, patchwork leather detail and bold block heels that not only elongate your legs, but also keep feet comfortable.
I love these heels for the unusual V-shaped front finish and grainy feel to the leather.

Animal Print Adventure

I am all for exploring new trends and labels and today I wanted to share a new brand I have recently discovered on theOutnet.

P1050041

P1060054

Mother of Pearl is a cool British label with rich collaboration-infused collections where silhouettes and detailing stay true to the sports luxe aesthetic the brand is so close to. Expect effortless, easy-to-wear silhouettes with eclectic edge.

P1050017

Being a fan of leather, I love this Mother of Pearl anthracite animal print calf hair Leona top I picked up on theOutnet sale.

P1050014

The lightweight leather front, contrasting black satin back panel, and twill trims, make this peplum top a very interesting alternative to cropped jumper or a shirt.

P1050031

P1050030

P1050015

I have teamed it up with Raoul Embossed stretch-jersey leggings-style pants, I also got on theOutnet.

P1050037

Raoul is yet another label I got to love for its contemporary take on classic wardrobe pieces. Singapore-based Raoul’s refined aesthetic juxtapose bold paneling with strong patterns and neat draping.

P1050038

P1050044

P1050042

P1050021

P1050023

I must admit that this Alexander Wang Leather and brushed-twill blazer has become a staple of my heavily leather-laden wardrobe. I picked it up on Yoox sale but it is still available on theOutnet.

P1050010

P1050958

The jacket features very quirky leather halterneck vest-effect front with flap pockets and snap-fastenings through the front.

P1050953

P1050962

P1050955

P1050966

P1050998

Aiming for colour blocking, I chose these gorgeous Alexander Wang Edie Pumice Grey Cut pumps, still available on Yoox.

P1050989

P1050992

Yet again, Wang puts his signature twist on the slingback pump with a side cutout and sharply textured suede in half d’Orsay silhouette. Like all of Alexander Wang’s creations, they are beautifully profiled and comfortable!

Love, love, love!

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!

P1060072

P1060074

P1060072

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.
P1060115

P1060127

P1060126

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!

P1060132

P1060101

P1060098

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