Colour blocking in style

I love leather jackets so unsurprisingly,  over the years I have collected a fair number of them in various shapes and shades.

P1060811

My recent addition is this stunning Acne Studios chocolate Mabel jacket – a modern classic leather motorcycle jacket with a feminine waisted silhouette featuring stand up collar and padded shoulders.

P1060842

P1060839

The interior is lined with a warm faux astrakhan with the signature curved hem longer in the back.

P1060937

It has a heavyweight feel, so sure to keep you warm and cozy even in the coldest of weathers.

P1060924

Low-key but luxurious, Acne Studios‘ jacket is perfect for casual dressing. I think it looks effortlessly cool with a pair of jeans or a funky skirt and ankle boots.

P1060894

P1060833

P1060834

I wore it with Club Monaco Mori mint and navy scuba asymmetric mini skirt that could truly be worn year-round. Club Monaco is a high-end casual clothing retailer owned by Polo Ralph Lauren I stumbled upon while browsing various on-line shopping destinations outside the UK. Worth checking out!

Unexpected and avant-garde, the skirt features bold colour blocking and a distinctive wrap-skirt silhouette finished with daring faux leather.

The mint, navy and black leather combination, and offset gunmetal zip create an interesting fusion of colour and texture.

When in need of turning up the cool-factor of winter looks, put on those super soft dark green ankle boots from Chloé featuring almond toe and block heel.

I love everything about them, the super sleek look, dark shade of green and how comfortable are they!

The Coat Season

So we are well and truly into the coat season. As much as I dislike the cold, it is immensely comforting to know that I will be blissfully warm just by throwing a shearling coat on.

Not only are the shearling coats incredibly cozy and practical but they also exude a certain level of timeless luxury and style.
I must admit, I love shopping out of season. You can certainly get more for your money, especially, when like me – you love luxury brands!

I have chosen to go with this gorgeous Just Cavalli green coat I bought from theOutnet some time ago.

Showcasing the fabulous trademark of Roberto Cavalli, sister line Just Cavalli is a riot of vibrant color, print and ceaseless glamour. Dark green has become one of my favourtite colours and I love the way it is juxtaposed with the black lamb shearling collar and cuffs.

P1070400

One of the unusual features are the hinged fastenings at the front, a funky alternative to buttons, zips or clip-ons.

When in need of turning up the cool-factor of fashion-forward winter looks, put on those super soft dark green ankle boots from Chloé featuring almond toe and block heel.

I colour blocked with this amazing Alexander Wang Rocketeer glossed-leather satchel I picked up on theOutnet.

There is something so mesmerising about the handbag, I could not stop looking at it when I first got it, admiring the beauty of the design, superb leather quality and the complicated curved lines that very much remind me of the forgotten shape of an accordion.

P1070297

The bag features one open central section and two tab-fastening side compartments. The satchel is undoubtedly in the list of my top 10 favourite bags to date.

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!

Fall in love with green…

As the new season sets in, I tend to favour a new hue so it is it about time to move on from my summer absolute favourite – peppermint to a bright shade of green.

P1040491

P1040493

P1040498

This Roksanda Ilincic skirt epitomises what I love about the vibrancy of green and the volume of design. I picked it up on my all time favourite Yoox sale, still available if it takes your fancy:)

P1040537

It is made of cool wool which makes the fabric feel almost textured or embossed. The skirt features a captivating billowing structure cinched in waist with a black nylon band to highlight the waistline and a raw exposed zip at the back.

P1040571

P1040546

Navy is a great dark alternative to black and is more complimentary in its depth of colour.

P1040566

I find navy works very well as a base for green so I have opted for that JOSEPH navy cashmere cropped jumper I picked up on BrandAlley.

P1040535

it is a must for every wardrobe, made from luxuriously soft, lightweight cashmere, it is the perfect layering piece. I wear it with a silk shirt with contrast yellow collar for office as well!

I love the flattering crew neckline and cropped design.

P1040562

I teamed the outfit with this 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Minute clutch Bag in a demure midnight navy. Timeless, chic and very modern – it is a great day-to-night clutch!

P1040528

I am a big fan of the fold-over structure and the hand holder that allows you to adjust its size depending on your needs are on a day!

P1040532
The zipped opening makes sure you do not lose anything while on on the go or even on a dance floor:)

P1040486

P1040485

P1040484

P1040482

I love shoes and finding out how new styles work for my my outfits always excites me so I ventured into not-so-frequented moccasin style.

P1040525

These CHLOÉ calf leather two tone Moccasins I got on a recent Yoox sale are just gorgeous.

P1040517

I applaud the towering block heel,  polished leather and metal applications!

P1040522

P1040514

I popped on my favourite Links of London Watch Over Me necklace and I am ready to rock my new look!

Leather Edit # 6

Closing off, here is a final piece of my leather edit – these lovely See by Chloe leather pants featuring a scalloped hem and high waist are an absolute winner.  The deep red colour sets them apart from the typical black leather pants.  The high waist works well when you have an hourglass shape.
Again, I had them taken in as they were a tad too long.
See by Chloe is known for the scalloped hem and I have decided to team it up with Marni brushed silk tank top that also has a scalloped trim.
This look is surprisingly fresh, can be cool and casual with summer sandals. I opted for a pair of L.K. Bennett Cerise Shilo patent leather pumps. With their impeccable design, perfect finish, and perfectly proportioned stiletto heel, these fab Shilo high heels combine all the essential qualities of the high heel, the quintessence of femininity.
