The burst of orange

When it comes to fashion, I always get excited with bursts of bright colours. Perhaps, this is why I love this outfit; bold, funky and it makes me smile!

P1060753

This Carven bright orange Faux fur-trimmed wool blend coat combines elegant cuts with directional detailing, it is one of those off-the-wall jackets with a Parisian twist, either you love it or hate it!.
I like its loose fit, detachable collar, buttoned flap pockets and zipped back vent.

I matched orange with yellow going for this Jonathan Saunders Maryse knitted cotton sweater.

The fluorescent peach and yellow juxtaposed against black ribbed trims create an almost intoxicating pattern that you just can’t stop looking at. It is without a doubt, one of my favourite jumpers.

Create a vibrant, off-duty look and team it with leather pants and soaring heels.
Black leather pants always go extraordinarily well with bright tops so I went with these Marc Jacobs Mirah leather trousers with skinny-leg and a horizontal knee-seam.

Bloggers Love Hub event -10th November – Kanaloa

On 10th November I was invited to join Bloggers and Brands at Bloggers Love Hub invent at Kanaloa Club in London.

P1060375

As always, it was a perfect opportunity to dress up so I opted for this gorgeous Alexander Wang black leather dress I picked up on Yoox sale.
Made from mid-weight non-stretchy lamb leather, it is perfect for the colder months paired with boots and a coat. I am particularly fond of the deep liquorice colour and this dress can just do the trick for an edgy day look, or a sultry night dress-up.

P1060369

I have teamed it up with Marc Jacobs block heel ankle boots I also picked up on Yoox and contrasted the outfit with this super slick EREMETT pink Stingray Leather Clutch.

The  event showcased the brands I had a chance to meet at the previous events organised by Bloggers Love including, Kisses by Coco, Want Her Dress, Glowbeads and Scarves BY MY.

P1060347

Kisses by Coco is a label set up by Nonto Li and an online boutique selling feminine and stylish pieces. My favorite was this monochrome jacket.

P1060354

This time round, I had an opportunity to talk to Carol Hanson – the founder of Want her Dress – an online shopping destination for trend-led women with a flair for fashion that offers very wearable and affordable pieces of clothing and accessories.

P1060356

P1060357

Scarves By My was another brand I am very fond of. Their beautiful, digital print scarves combining a beauty of luxurious silk and craftsmanship of design, make a perfect treat for yourself or a cool present for the family fashionista.

P1060379

P1060380

Heidi & Adele is an up-and-coming luxury label offering gorgeous and super stylish leather clutches, handbags and card holders made from ecologically and responsibly sourced leather. I must admit, I fell in love with a couple of clutches that are now on my wishlist…

P1060361

P1060366

P1060365

What I liked about Heidi & Adele’s pieces was the simplicity of design, luxurious feel of the leather and fabulously bright colours. Combined with black finish, they are innovative, eye catching and dazzling with creativity. Just superb!

P1060362

I had a chance to chat to the stylist from Umberto Giannini who recommended a couple of their styling hair products as well!

Another brand I enjoyed meeting was Hire the Catwalk, the online rental of designer dresses for special occasions and event that also featured their pieces on the catwalk. Don’t be caught in the same dress ever again!

P1060392

 I Want Your Clothes – an online fashion shop also showcased their own designs. I liked the girly floral patterns, see though fabrics and colourful jackets! I got myself a pretty floral cropped jumper.

Cheeky Poppins run by Jennifer Chuks offers cool shoe clip-ons you can attach anywhere and anytime to your shoes to transform and customise the design.

P1060387

Made of carpet was a different kettle of fish, this online store offers vintage Victorian style bags made from real thick Oriental Rug. I am a fan of large totes so really like the large bag – you can pack your whole day in it!

Apart from the brands I had a chance to meet with fabulous bloggers including Zeena Xena from Blogging Gals and Amy Blaker from Fifty-shadesofblonde.

Get leathered – back to black

So, I am back to my staple black leather outfit and I love it!
This gorgeous Alexander Wang black leather dress I picked up on Yoox sale is definitely the hit of this season!

Made from mid-weight non-stretchy lamb leather, it is perfect for the colder months paired with boots and a coat. I am particularly fond of the deep liquorice colour and this dress can just do the trick for an edgy day look, or a sultry night dress-up. Try pointy heels to transform into a femme fatale…

I have teamed it up with Marc Jacobs block heel ankle boots I also picked up on Yoox.
The fab thing about Yoox is that they do the weekly sales of already discounted designer gems so you can pick up a great deal of bargains if you keep tabs on what is on offer!

P1050200

Combining the quirky elements which make any Marc Jacobs design instantly recognisable seems an impossible task, but with each new and interesting shape and texture the iconic designer proves that this can be done with timeless style.
P1050194
These Black leather zip block heel Chicago ankle boots feature a squared round toe and double gunmetal-tone zip front press-stud fastening tab to ankle. I love the quirky, cylindrical stacked leather heel, where quirkiness meets elegance.

Ted Baker Kamilla Satin Orchid Print Dress

As I have been much into the summer florals theme of recent and I wanted to feature this pretty Ted Baker Kamilla Satin Orchid Print Dress. It is a more demure alternative to a bright, flowery day summer dress and comes with three-quarter length sleeves and barely there padding to the shoulders.
Ted Baker is one of the fastest-growing leading brands in the UK, much acclaimed for its colourful pastel digital print design and this oversized orchid print gives it exactly that eye-catching edge you are after. I love the fact that you don’t have to try hard with this dress, it is ready to wear and utterly versatile. Just add a pair of pumps and off you go.

I have paired it with these lovely Marc by Marc Jacobs fuchsia peep to heels. The deep pink hue fantastically completes the purple orchid accents.

Leather Edit # 5

There’s been one overwhelming winner for fashion trend of the season in my wardrobe – monochrome. I absolutely adore this eternally chic combination. Monochrome is simple but wearing it requires a bit of forethought. The key is to choose the right monochrome for you, and style it up (but not too much).
This is my take on the look. I have chosen Marc by Marc Jacobs Mirah leather trousers with skinny-leg and a horizontal knee-seam with a top button and zip front fastening. Unfortunately, they sold out on matchesfashion.com and paired it with ACNE Studios Lupine intarsia wool sweater – now on sale at theoutnet and Gerard Darel Simple black bag.
As I am 5”4 – I have taken the leggings in as originally they were 29”. I like them very fitted ideally above the ankle at 27”.
Finally, a word on footwear. Black and white shoes are an easy update. There is a plethora of styles to choose from but my pick would be these L.K. Bennett Suede Gracia Pistachio Heels.
