Skirts, Dresses and More.

Since moving back to Winchester it’s fair to say that I’ve been slacking on the blog, but can you really blame me? I’ve been reunited with my besties and I feel as though we’ve spent the past few days on the sofa, laughing and screaming at all the bugs that have seemed to make themselves at home over the summer. So anyway, today I caught up on all things net-a-porter and here’s a rundown of all my favourite things from Friday and Monday.

YVES SAINT LAURENT

I saw these boots and wasn’t sure if I liked them or not. It wasn’t until I scrolled down the page and did a double take that I realised that maybe I did like them. They look like a lot of fun and are something that I imagine Jennifer Lopez rocking for an afternoon stroll.

ISABEL MARANT

This dress doesn’t look like much, but when I saw it on the model, I knew I had to add it to my wish list. I love the mixture of mesh and embellishment, and how easily it could be dressed down by wearing with Isabel’s suede Jenny boots.

Another sweater… There isn’t much I haven’t said about sweater before, and let me tell you now; this is not the only sweater on this list, but anyway. This is so cute and it looks like something my friend bought the other day – LOVES IT!

CAMILLA AND MARC

Camilla and Marc is a brand I’ve been interested in for a few months and a brand I’ve been meaning to do a designer profile on for some time. I love the shape and colour of this dress, and how perfect it’d look dressed up or down. Also, the organza and peter-pan colour keeps the dress looking cute and girly.

This jacket reminds me of one I used to see around the shop floor all the time. It’s jazzy, so much fun, and would go really well with a simple pair of skinny jeans and a loose tee.

RAG & BONE

The knit on this bad boy seems to be becoming all the rage these days. Iro was one of the first to bring out a knitted cardigan and now I see this kind of knit popping up all over the place. I would wear this in the largest size possible and just cosy up on the sofa all day long.

MELISSA ODABASH

What a perfect beach cover-up? Melissa is known for her cool and effortlessly chic beachwear, and I think this crocodile print kaftan really hits the spot. I also kind of think that you could probably get away with wearing this away from the beach, but of course you would need an undergarment and maybe some tough looking boots.

J.W. ANDERSON

This is definitely my favourite sweater of the bunch. I love the size, the contrasting colours, and the fact that it looks cosy as hell. I’d throw on with a pair of skinny jeans and Isabel Marant’s Jenny boots.

TIBI

There isn’t really much I can say about this dress, apart from that I like it. Again, this is another dress that when I saw it on the model, I knew I had to add it to the list. It looks like a really fun thing to wear and great for a night out.

CARINE GIBSON

Carine Gibson is the one I turn to whenever I’m looking for some fancy things for my characters to wear. Her designs are always sleek, sexy and oh so sophisticated. This kimono style robe is something to slip when you’re feeling lazy in bed, but still want to keep things interesting with your man.

MICHAEL MICHAEL KORS

This is your average basic sweater in one of my favourite colours to wear: cream. The cable knit is so simple, and I imagine that if I sat down and really thought about it, I could probably knit something like this (in my dreams, but still…).

VIONNET

This silk chiffon and satin gown is a stunner. I love the deep raspberry colour and the halter-neck-esque style. I guess if you’re the type to always be going to black-tie functions, then this is the dress for you. Add long earrings and a bedazzled clutch for some glitzy details.

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN

Every once in a while I like to post a pair of flats, and I guess that this happenstance it’s the king of the red sole’s turn with his fabulous sakouette calf hair loafers. Naturally, almost every size is sold out and at £465; it isn’t hard to see why. Don’t fret, as I imagine some high street giant will have something very similar out soon (if they don’t already).

TIBI

I’ve seen a few of these camisoles as I scrolled down the page and I must say that the black is by far my favourite. This is the kind of basic that every woman needs in her wardrobe, so I’m kind of surprised that I don’t own something like this. Honestly, I should really practise what I preach.

Styling Suggestion:

IRO     Stella McCartney     Carven 

OAK

I love skirts that are plain, can be easily dressed and have a kind of school girl vibe to them. Maybe because I loved my old school uniforms and having to wear skirts, but this Oak creation is a favourite.

BURBERRY BRIT

I’m a sucker for an intarsia sweater and this fox style is the cutest thing I’ve seen in such a long time. I know it’s white, but the fox reminds me of Mr. Fox in Fantastic Mr. Fox.

I can see that this looks like such a rushed post, but I know that these pieces would pile up and you could say that I’m dying to share these finds with someone. Tonight’s going to be a good night, especially if I’ll be dreaming about all these lovely clothes (and dreaming about having the money to actually buy all these lovely clothes). Goodnight.
