Rinaree Fashion Show – The London Capital Club

We are at this time of the year again when the Christmas parties are on the cards and we are all looking forward to the December festivities ahead. In this spirit, I headed to the fabulous Rinaree launch and fashion show organised by The London Capital Club in the heart of the City the other week.

I wore this Bastyan Danae Drape Dress in Ginger hue in a vibrant stretch silk and Alexander Wang Racketeer Sling small calf hair shoulder bag and Sam Edelman Ria black suede ankle boots. I complemented the outfit with rose gold accessories; Fendi Bangle and Michael Kors watch.

Rinaree is a prolific collaboration between Marina Richards and Yana Gafurova, a mother-daughter duo who design stupendous couture evening and wedding gowns with a fresh perspective on fashion and style.

Marina Richards is the designer of the entire Rinaree range, with over 25 years of fashion experience, working with top London designers she makes sure her designs are quintessentially unique, instinctively knowing what the client wants.

Yana Gafurova, who I met personally at the show, is a Central Saint Martins’ offspring, where she majored in jewellery. Striving for perfection, both mother and daughter balance their life experiences and individuality, bringing the best out of the creative trio: couture, art and fashion.

The show wowed with the beauty of uniquely individual designs, fabulous fabrics and understated colour schemes.

My absolute favourite was this interchangeable silver skirt and corset.

The corset itself was made using the traditional 19th century techniques, with French lace, organza and hand-beading and gemstone details, it was absolutely stunning!
Definitely, the winner of the night!

P1060654

I absolutely adored this blue dress, made of three layers of French lace, applied directly to a silk net base stretched on the mannequin. All fabrics used by Rinaree are natural and originate from Italy and France.

What an extraordinary work of art!

P1060661

I had a chance to chat to other bloggers and designers who celebrated Rinaree’s launch, exchanging ideas and fashion tips!

Christmas is fast approaching and it is known to be this special time of the year for a vast number of proposals so I though it would be a good idea to check out some of the diamond jewelry hot in town right now!

After all, diamonds are a girl’s best friend!

I was invited to join the private viewing of Vashi diamond and precious stone collection held at Tart Bar near Barbican in London.

P1060581

I went monochrome with this lovely JOSEPH Bi-Colour Stretch-Twill Dress, accessorized with Rick Owens Leather Flat White Clutch, Michael Kors rose gold watch and Links of London jewelry.

P1060556

The event showcased a fabulous range of bespoke diamond jewelery designed by Vashi Dominiguez – professional jeweller to some of the most renowned individuals including celebrities, royalties and US presidents!

Vashi has been recognised as the industry leader with a number of TV, radio and press reviews, and celebrities like Cheryl Cole and Rita Ora wearing his bespoke pieces.

The event brought together bloggers, designers and diamonds lovers, it was a perfect opportunities to try those beautiful pieces on. I certainly took full advantage!

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.

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

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!

Wrap me up

I love wrapping myself up in soft and luxurious fabrics that keep the cold at bay and with this beautiful piece, casual wrap up stole is being taken to a whole new level.

P1050380
Acne Studios Neela dramatic wrap was debuted at the label’s Fall ’14 runway show. this gorgeous monochrome stole is crafted from soft wool-blend and backed in black patent leather. I bought it off NET-A-PORTER, unfortunately it has sold out since then.

P1050323

When I saw it on-line earlier in a year, I knew I had to have it. This jacquard stole is so unusual featuring a single long sleeve, funnel neck, softly gathered front with a wrap around effect. You simply slip your arm into the single sleeve, securing it at the shoulders with concealed snap fastenings.

P1050403

It is definitely a bold fashion statement and will surely get you noticed!

I wore Jeager London black wool boucle collarless jacket underneath. You can’t really see its details so I will save it for the next post but it is one of those jackets that fit in seamlessly with almost any outfit. I have been known to wear it from early spring till late autumn months.

P1050364

P1050354

P1050398

I teamed it up with Michael Kors black seamed zipped skinny jeans. I like the combination of black denim and golden zippers.

P1050385

P1050347

P1050344

These stylish MICHAEL KORS jeans definitely add sophisticated versatility to your wardrobe.

P1050339

P1050279

I finished the look of with my foolproof L.K. Bennett Selina Mock Croc Leather Court Shoes. Unfortunately they are now sold out everywhere, you might get lucky and hunt them down on Ebay though.

P1050288

P1050290

Based on a Shilo classic design, they are exceptionally comfortable for a 4 inch heel! Th famously modern silhouette is reinforced by the fresh take on the classic bow design.

September Farewell – Richard Nicoll two tone teal dress

October is officially here! But hey, it is not cold yet so I am capitalising on my ever-expanding summer wardrobe as I took the walk down the picturesque Sundridge Manor Park.

P1040249

P1040176

P1040183

P1040100

I am sending the summer away in this gorgeous two-tone jacquard dress from Richard Nicoll featuring a sleeveless design, plain waive with straight hem and a paneled colour block that I picked up on Yoox sale.

P1040102

I love its closely cut fit and the vibrant light green hue combined with the calming grey waist band. This is a kind of dress that would work perfectly well for a chilled out meet-up with friends when both style and comfort do matter.

P1040105

I love the fact that you don’t have to try hard with this dress, it is ready to wear and utterly versatile.

P1040110

P1040113

Just add a pair of pumps, jacket off you go. I went with this gorgeous JAEGER wool & cashmere blend grey blazer. I find it so stylish and functional!

P1040277

Wear it, like myself, with the summer dress or mix it in into your work wear with a silky blouse and a pair of tailored trousers.

P1040279

I love Michael Kors designs so to finish off the look I slipped into those cute Michael Kors suede leather pumps.

P1040129

I love the unusual V shape around the toe and a multi-faceted cone-line chunky heel. 

P1040135

P1040138

P1040141

P1040144

I could not forget my sunglasses on such a lovely and bright day and I opted for these lovely Balenciaga Square frame acetate sunglasses I got from theOutnet (still available on sale!).

P1040198

I am such a fun of the teal frames, graded lenses and funky cut-out Balenciaga stamped arms. These glasses will definitely get you noticed! Rock them with leather for the wow factor.

P1040206

P1040209

P1040212

P1040116
Finally, I accesorised with my favourite Links of London sweetie bracelet and Karabiner Bangle.
