White Summer

It is a summer must have for us girls. As we have had a few hot days in this madly unpredictable British summer, it is a perfect time to discuss one of my favourite summer pieces… the playsuit.
Let me know what you think!

Winter Farewell

I am casting my mind back to my 2nd day at London Fashion Week… It seems like a long time ago now with both Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks well over, to me, however, it still resonates with a certain degree of euphoria and inspiration weeks on.

I will be sharing with you all the exciting brands I had met at Somerset House Designer Showrooms in the forthcoming posts. Today, though, it is a quick peek into my outfit on London Fashion Week Day 2 that Yahoo Lifestyle voted one of 14 best street styles on the day at Somerset House! How cool is that!

As you all know, I love shearling coats so when the weather still had London in its wintry grasp, I could not resist but to go for this gorgeous Rick Owens Shearling-collared leather jacket I picked up on theOutnet last year.

 I love the neutral, blush coloured leather and show-stopping oversized shearling shawl collar that will get you noticed from the crowd.

Rick Owens take a feminine approach to the classic biker jacket and offers up this flesh leather cropped version.

I played with perfect proportions by layering the jacket over Proenza Schouler Flocked moiré-jacquard mini runaway dress I got from Net-a-Porter a couple of months ago. I can’t get enough of the bold multicolored Flocked moiré-jacquard and rich velvet flocking. Nipped in waist with rounded shoulders and wide short sleeves, the dress certainly gives off a modern look This navy and teal techno-fabric dress is, in my opinion, one of the best pieces from Proenza Schouler‘s “energy, humor, and speed.” Fall’14 collection.

I worked it with pointed suede ankle boots and a leather clutch.
Bottega Veneta Nero Suede Boots I got from MyTheresa never let me down. Every time I wear them, they do make a statement adding a dash of playful originality! I love the elegant silhouette contrasted against a whimsical flame-like cut out design to the ankle.

I accessorised my look with JAEGER black ponskin gloves, Balenciaga Square-frame acetate sunglasses, also from theOutnet and Emilio Pucci two tone blue fold-over leather zipped clutch with gold-tone signature logo and a fold-over top that goes so perfectly with the hue of the dress. I picked it up on theCorner sale. I am so fond of the vibrancy of the colours and luscious fuchsia silk inside lining!

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.

image

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!

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.

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!

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!
