Out for a wander

A few weeks back I headed off to Rochester for a wonder as it was one of these first beautiful sunny weekends following a pretty grim winter… and the smell of Spring was in the air…

I picked this Alexander Wang leather-sleeved wool coat mainly because I am so into charcoal grey these days!

I love the marled wool body with black croc – embossed leather sleeves and  notched lapel-effect collar.
How intoxicating are these shades of violet, tomato-red and grape! It is the ultimate statement making jumper for fuss-free, fashion-forward style.
What else would go better with this cool jumper than equally colour bursting blue leather skirt also by Richard Nicholl?

Alexander Wang takes the ankle bootie through Spring with this stretch mesh “Daga” style that lets your foot breathe! I fell love with its unusual stretch mesh upper fabric and the flattering almond toe!
Skin-baring mesh adds sporty appeal to a leather-trimmed ankle boot with a sky-high, commanding heel.

I absolutely adore this MARY KATRANTZOU Marinela navy jewel print tote.

This structured leather tote mixes practicality with a quirky sense of humour  – the smooth streamlined and sophisticated shape is decorated with the playful and vibrant coloured tikiman (what Mary calls “little pagan robots made up of symbols.”) set against an navy hued background, and features magnetic polished hardware fastening for easy access.

I love the way the gold bar lines up with the straps!

Finally, I accesorised with my favourite Fendi purple sunglasses!  I love the geometric plastic frames and purple lenses, so retro!

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.

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

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

Richard Nicoll snake-effect jacquard dress & Alexander Wang Jodie retro mint-green leather pumps

As I am writing this post, I am coming towards the end of my summer holiday and I am desperately trying to keep fresh all the images of the fabulous summer dresses I wore this season.
P1010959P1010960

This is yet another design I have recently fallen in love with – when an average cocktail dress just won’t do, turn to Richard Nicoll’s exquisite cut. This light grey/mint snake-effect jacquard dress is a statement choice, with a pearlescent mint-green jersey back panel and gorgeous mint patent leather hem, it will get you to stand out from the crowd! I love the casual, loose fit and a scoop neck that oozes sophistication.

P1010962P1010963P1010979

These Alexander Wang Jodie retro mint-green leather pumps are a perfect duo. I love the mint hue pepped up with a splash of foil-effect aqua green and the black ankle strap that carries on daring modernity. The trademark pointy toe, sling back strap and the additional black ankle strap with a side buckle fastening are just gorgeous. Contrast matte with metallic for unimpaired results, wear it with a pencil skirt or a shift dress for a contemporary cue of style.

P1010967P1010969P1010975P1010972

The black studded Alexander McQueen De Manta clutch will complete the coolest of evening looks.

Richard Nicoll Snake Effect Jacquard Dress and Alexander Wang Lovisa Pumps

So I have recently discovered this cocktail cool and modernist London based designer Richard Nicoll and I instantaneously fell in love with his dresses! This color-block Snake-Effect Blue Jacquard Sleeveless Stretch Jersey Dress is the ultimate statement-making piece. I must admit, the indigo-blue is the most intoxicating hue and I love the contrasting snake-effect lilac blue jacquard front pane. The dress features exquisite design detailing including the exposed seams at the back and raw rims. A pair of mules or ankle strap heels and a chic clutch is all you will need.

I teamed up the dress with my favourite Alexander Wang Lovisa blood orange pumps. I love the design so much that I am now a proud owner of these beauties in stingray embossed black and white! I simply adore the stiletto high pointed calfskin toe with t-strap and a side buckle fastening that transforms this classic style into something utterly modern.
