Autumn Florals

Florals are in fashion all year long, but they don’t need to at all look saccharine. In fact, for fall/winter 2015, they have had a more boyish feel.

Swap pretty for edgy with a contemporary, masculine twist to keep florals looking fresh this fall.

Flush of blush

How about dusky pink? It might not be your favourite colour but certainly fashion is having an affection with it. Pink isn’t just about being “pretty” anymore…

The appeal of teal

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and are all looking forward to the wonders of 2015! It has been a while since my last post as I was enjoying my down-time off-line! I have somehow resisted featuring any glitzy and Christmassy ensembles, instead went for not-so-festive yet still funky winter leather outfit.

Working with different shades of ivory, charcoal and black, Rick Owens is the king of avant-garde dazzle. You can always count on adding the edge to your urban wardrobe with the Paris-based designer’s luxe leather jackets.

This Rick Owens Winged Salon shearling-lined leather jacket I picked up on theOutnet is one of a kind!
I love the rich pumpkin shade and the distressed leather look with shearling-lined collar. The oversized, cropped style and asymmetric snap fastening at front give the jacket uber cool look. The sleeves are fairly long so not to everyone’s liking but I adore this daring cut and fit.

Carven is yet another label on the list of my favourite brands working Parisian elegance and eclectic aesthetics. This asymmetric statement skirt is certainly having its moment and it is easy to see why with Carven‘s vivid teal version.

A geometric hem – longer at the back – and tactile wool bouclé sets it apart.

I am back with yet another of Alexander Wang‘s designs. I picked up these dark brown Anouck cutout-heel leather ankle boots on theOutnet.

I love the wedge cut-out leather heel with metal hardware plate that truly makes these boots unique.
The elasticated side panels and a pull tab at the rear create no-fuss slip on and off. They are very comfortable, too!

Mad Hatter Style – Going Retro

I find that playing around with different styles is not only immensely enjoyable, but it also makes me scrutinize my fashion limitations. Experimenting with new pieces and trends pushes me out of my comfort zone, and as a result it boosts my confidence, making me completely at ease with everything I wear.

I’m playing Mad Hatter in today’s look, going with a more vintage inspired outfit. I love the idea of a wide brim hat however, I never bought myself a proper one, simply assuming it would be a bit too inconvenient to carry if I decide to take it off! As a part of an experiment to get me into wearing more hats I bought this black Primark felt fedora hat, and I could not have been happier with it!

The pretty vintage-inspired bow makes it easy to wear with a furry winter coat or a short shearling jacket,

Made from soft wool, this wide-brimmed feldora hat is perfect for those chilly Saturday shopping trips or Sunday lunches and at £8, it surely is a foolproof accessory you can’t afford to miss!

I mixed it with this cosy Faux fur collar maxi cardigan, also from Primark.

Funky, stylish and practical with a touch of American retro! I love the way it is complemented by the hat and how unasumingly cool and off-duty it makes the whole outfit look.

Layering is great for winter, so I opted for this sumptuously soft CARVEN Green Tigerintarsia Knitted Sweater I picked up from theOutnet. I love the teal / coral nylon and mohair-blend and tiger stripe design that goes so well with natural tone of the leggings!

These Donna Karan New York Seamed skinny rattan pants are one of the classic body pants, designed with lines and seams that make the difference tracing the silhouette, accentuating the positive through sculpting, shape and structure, also engineered to elongate the leg.

This is what you call a great easy chic look for busy ladies!

I popped on these Sam Edelman Petty Sued Booties I picked up on BrandAlley. With one of the season’s hottest silhouettes, they are on my top 10 perfect flat booties list!

Sam Edelman shoes are defined by a strong eye for fashion so no wonder that after more than 30 years in the industry, he has honed his craft to design shoes that reflect his creative sensibility and confident style. His expressive signature on the insole of his shoes has become an iconic hallmark of quality.

My favourite features are stacked heel and tonal grosgrain piping at the notched top line.

Carven Tiger intarsia knitted sweater

Recently, I have discovered yet another brand I simply adore – Carven. This French fashion house creates classic wardrobe staples with a chic Parisian twist. It delivers effortless style for every occasion and this Tiger intarsia knitted sweater is no different.
Beautifully ribbed, with teal, coral nylon and mohair-blend, it is cut for a close fit and looks fab on.
Still available on the Outnet.com
I have teamed it up with Pied a Terre PU quilted pencil skirt with double ended side zip panel detailing. The quilted detailing throughout makes this skirt a must have for many seasons to come and a fashion statement in itself.
I have worn it with L.K. BENNETT suede and satin purple pumps to polish the look.
