LITTLE RED.

This Winter, take your outerwear to a new cool girl territory by opting for an androgynous look. I chose this scarlet red over-sized coat by Lulu Liu making sure the rest of my outfit was subtle. 

This drop shoulder coat makes me excited for cooler temperatures as it creates a super quirky look and oozes androgynous glamour.

Sunglasses: Prada

Coat: Lulu Liu

Bag: Prada

Cut-out Boots: Balenciaga

Oh Bomber!

I love the idea of being able to look cool without having to try so hard. Sometimes all you need to make an outfit is a simple statement bomber jacket. I swapped my regular style for something new with an edge by wearing this Ayala Paris jacket. It almost felt transforming or maybe I am just exaggerating. Check out the brand for more cool stuff and head over to my instagram for a sneak peek of next weeks look.

Have a lovely day xoxo

MONOCHROME

image

Monochrome has become the norm of this seasons trend. Swap your brights for black & whites and don’t be scared to push boundaries. I decided to go for a more dramatic look by teaming the wide fedora hat with this statement crop fur jack by Lulu Liu.

Dare To Wear Red?

Red lipstick is very much my thing, but a red dress- Uhhhhh no thanks. Well that was my attitude until I found this cute little number on Asos. Initially, I was worried about not being able to have red lipstick paired up with this dress but I think it worked just fine. If you’re unsure about whether the red dress you’re considering wearing suits you, hold it up next to your unmade-up face and see what impact it has on your skin.

ARCHITECTURAL ASYMMETRY

Playing with shapes on garments can be quiet daunting but once figured  out,  it becomes more fun than a chore. I had purchased this stunning structured a-line skirt few months ago (and I mean nearly a year ago!) from & Other Stories and finally got to wear it for the first time today! 

I paired it up with this super chic top from Asos that reveals your mid-riff in an absolutely sophisticated manner in order to create a mirror image of the skirt (genius huh?)

For accessories, I am wearing a cuff by MAWI,  watch by Michael Kors which has caused me to neglect my other watches and my new obession-Celine sunglasses.

    SHOP SMART
One thing I’ve learnt since I began working in retail is that you can buy brands you adore if you are patient. I say patience because many times I personally buy on impulse. 

After patiently waiting for the sale to arrive, I was lucky enough to bag myself key pieces for my wardrobe. The stunning jacket is a  runway piece from Isabel Marant’s SS14 collection and  bag is from Stella McCartney’s Summe 14 collection.

Both were bought at Selfridges. SHOP SMART

      ASOS Experiences Arson Attack.

      Following the suspected arson attack at their only warehouse in Barnsley, ASOS has resumed trading. In a statement ASOS said that 20% of the total stock at the site has been compromised by fire damage and the sprinkler systems.

      At the time of the fire £159m and 70% of the stock was held at the warehouse. They added that they are fully insured for the loss of stock and interruption. The fire broke out on Friday evening at about 22:00pm and the site went back online at 2am on Monday morning.

      BAFTA’s & Other Stories.

      First of all let me apologize for going M.I.A! You know what happens when you get a job and become preoccupied with absolutely everything. But now that I’m back,  things are going to be slightly different around the blog.

      Most of my posts are going to be based solely on outfits that I put together for myself or for friends and client. I will also be covering events I attend and interviews with people I meet.

       Now here’s a recap….

      Back in May, I was invited by Carat London to attend the BAFTA’s and ofcourse I was delighted and had throw an outfit together.

      I got to wear this stunning LAI jewellery Cuff which is designed exclusively in collaboration with London jeweller Skir Lin- a previous designer and creator for Cartier & De Beers.

      The Victoria’s Secret Show 2014 Is Coming To London

      THE Victoria’s Secret Show will take place in London this year, two of the Angels revealed at the brand’s Bond Street store this morning. Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel joined marketing director Ed Razek to announce the move, as well as the venue and date: Earls Court on December 2. The show has been held in various cities across the world - including Cannes, Miami and LA. The brand has hoped to bring it here since 1998, Razek revealed, but he said: “Candidly, we weren’t well known enough here until we opened the stores. We have six stores in the UK now.”

      Roland Mouret For Banana Republic

      Not to be out-done by H&M’s latest designer collaborator announcement with Alexander Wang, American retailer Banana Republic has signed up Roland Mouret to design a limited-edition capsule collection. Mouret, known for his figure-flattering styles, will create an almost 30-piece collection for the high street store that has previously collaborated with L’Wren Scott and Issa London, launching worldwide and online in early August 2014.

      Comprising skirts, tops, trousers and dresses in a pared-back palette, the range for the popular US-based high-street chain will launch in August. Mouret’s trademark dresses are tipped to become the most feted items, especially as they will retail from $165 - a fraction of the cost of pieces from his eponymous label. But, he says, it won’t be a replica of his own line: “It’s not a copy of my clothes in a less expensive [version], but the experience of a fitted dress for the Banana Republic customer.” His attention was caught by Banana Republic’s innovative Sloan bi-stretch cotton fabric: “When I saw that fabric I was so interested in working with it in my way,” he said.

      Chanel Goes Super Market Chic For AW14 Collection

      Grocery shopping has never been so glamorous as with the Chanel AW14 catwalk supermarket. Karl Lagerfeld transformed the Grand Palais into a Chanel-style store, complete with aisles of Chanel branded products, trolleys and advertisements.

      Models carried Chanel-inspired shopping baskets with the house’s signature chains, or vacuum-packed quilted leather classic bags. Browsing the shelves, the models appeared to be shopping, and helping other customers with purchases. All whilst modeling the latest collection by the luxury fashion house.

      The collection was more than suitable for the luxe shopper, with leather cut tracksuits and sparkly tops paired with metallic denim. A tweed ankle length coat updated the house’s signature fabric in a style that has been dominating the catwalk season.

      OSCARS 2014 BEST DRESSED

      Lupita Nyong’o

      Although it may have been her first time down the Oscars red carpet, but Lupita looked like an absolute professional. The pleated Prada gown in duck egg blue with spangled embellishment was fit for a prom night.

      Angelina Jolie

      Loaded with embellishment, Jolie managed to look sophisticated rather than gaudy in this spangled gown.

      Portia de Rossi

      Her wife Ellen DeGeneres might be the host, but this beauty  stole the sartorial spotlight from her spouse on the red carpet in a cream appliqué gown with modern halter-neck neckline.
