Head Over Mules In Love.

It’s no secret that mules have become all the rage in recent months, much like it’s no secret that my love for the peculiar shoe is real (see posts here and here), so surely this post will not seem too out of the ordinary. A couple of weeks ago while updating my net-a-ports wish list, I came across these bad boys. Now, as much as I love me some mules, the heel has to be a particular height otherwise I’m not interested, but there was something about these Alexander Wang mules that grabbed my attention. Could it be the cut-out heel or the fabulous feather detailing? Or the fact that a few days prior I had found myself mysteriously mesmerised by Loeffler Randall’s low heeled sandals?

      

      

I’ll never know. But one thing I do know is that my love for mules is no longer height-biased.

Pop & Suki.

Please do not ask me how I discovered this brand or why it took me so long to discover this brand because I do not know. The brainchild of two friends, Poppy and Suki, Pop and Suki is a new (not really but kind of) brand offering cool and chic bags and accessories that will make you feel just as cool and chic – or at least they definitely should because these pieces are UH-MAZ-ING.

Case in point their camera bag which I am totally OBSESSED with. Not only is it the perfect size for hanging out with friends or going on a date (it’s small enough to not be bulky, but still big enough to fit an iPhone 6 Plus and a passport – perfect for those last minute getaways 😉 ) but it can be worn in a multitude of different ways i.e.: a bum bag, a backpack, a cross body, a clutch, a mini bag or a side bag – the possibilities really are endless with this. AND not to mention you can also get your name printed on the bottom!!! The thing I love most about the camera bag is that you can really personalise it however you want thanks to the choice of straps, colours, accessories and print you choose. Naturally I’m drawn to the pink aptly names Cotton Candy (even though I want one in every colour), that I can already picture myself wearing every day; and I’m also loving the wide strap and the short tassels.

Prices for these bags are kind of high (they start at £164.02) but are definitely worth the investment. I haven’t seen many reviews for this bag and the site only has a few pictures of its exterior, but I’m still extremely excited about this bag.

I love how cute and girly these bags are and really cannot wait until I can own one. And just like that another item has been added to my wish list. Watch this space…

Obsessed With: Maggie Marilyn.

So, there I was, minding my own business, scrolling through the recently added section on net-a-ports (as you do), adding things to my wish list, when I kept coming across such distinctly feminine yet not super girly pieces. I soon discovered that coincidentally, all these great pieces I was coming across, were all from New Zealand based brand, Maggie Marilyn. Practically still a baby (it was only launched in 2016), the line is sold exclusively on net-a-porter which helps add to its charm.

      

While I’m not usually a fan of ruffles – I find them too messy and unnecessary – there is something about MM’s ruffled pieces that makes me want to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe with nothing but ruches and frills.

I can’t wait to see more from this brand in the future. Check out more of the collection here and here.

Total Stud-Muffin.

I love studs. Cute, practical and subtle, stud earrings (especially the really small ones) go with all outfits. I’m always on the lookout for studs to wear as I find them to be less flashy and attention-grabbing, yet still able to be the finishing touch complete any look. These days studs are getting more delicate and coming in unique designs like the mismatched earring sets that I’m currently loving.

And speaking of studs, I’ve always wanted to get a second ear piercing but for whatever reason I haven’t. Therefore, by the end of the year I really hope that I’m finally able to take the plunge and get my second hole done – just think about all the more earrings I’d be able to wear!

I Got Them: Le Specs Air Heart.

All the way from Australia, my brand new Le Specs Air Heart sunglasses. Super chic, ultra-classic, and totally cool, I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with these. I love how amazing they look on and I cannot wait for the summer when I can be rocking these all day every day!

Stay tuned for the tortoiseshell blue reflective lens ones. I haven’t bought them yet, but after seeing how much I love their all-black counterparts, I’m sure I’ll love them too.

Allude.

I’m not sure how long this brand has been on net-a-porter, but it recently caught my eye (thanks to its luxe and extensive knitwear collection that had me wanting to buy everything), and I’ve loved adding their pieces to my wish list.

                  

Founded in 1999 by Andrea Karg, Allude, is a Munich based luxury knitwear design house that focuses on creating comfortable but oh so chic pieces, primarily from cashmere, that though basics are nothing basic. These classic items, including sweaters, coats, trousers and more, are the perfect foundation for any luxury wardrobe.

Since its inception, the brand has only gone from strength to strength with loyal customers coming from all over the world.

      

Allude is definitely a brand that I’ll continue to look out for on net-a-porter as well as in other places, and that I hope to be shopping from very soon. For more information on Allude, you can check out their site here.

Pigalles Follies.

How stunningly gorgeous are these pumps? When I first laid eyes on them it was like love at first sight. The mosaic like pattern on the shoes, that arch of the sole, and of course that seductive 5 inch heel height all had me falling head over heels. Despite their blue colour, to me these pumps look especially classic and as timeless as any plain black pump. What do you think?

      

And sure the Pigalles are said to be notoriously difficult, but they’re not all that difficult to look at are they?
