Cocktails in Wonderland.

By this point you know that I love dressing casual and sharing my favourite casual pieces. By this point, you also know that I love me some glitter, tulle, frills and all things pink and girly. So when I saw FarFetch’s Christmas season editorial I was ecstatic. There was glitter, embellishments, tulle, ruffles, pink… the list goes on, all in the form of beautiful pieces from designers such as Oscar de la Renta (you know how obsessed I am), Saint Laurent, Valentino and more!

This^^ Oscar dress is by far my favourite. I love the embellishments, I love the tulle, I love the organza, I love the shape, I love the colour – can I just live in it please?

These pieces definitely make you feel as though you’re in wonderland, which is in keeping with their concept. Can’t you just imagine floating up to Christmas dinner in these? Oooh, so dreamy.

What I love the most about the editorial is that it offers a twist to the classic party season pieces that everyone loves. Every piece is whimsical and feminine, but there’s also an element of drama and intrigue, making the looks unique.

Sidebar: doesn’t the model look stunning? The hair and makeup is EVERYTHING in these shots. Ugh she’s so pretty!!

It obviously goes without saying that I want to own every single last piece shown above – I mean what girl wouldn’t? For more, make sure you check out FarFetch.

Like a Lady.

Most days I dress like a slob. But on those off days when I feel like putting an extra bit of effort into my public appearance and personal presentation, it never hurts to look to pieces like the ones below for inspiration. Ladylike dressing doesn’t just mean perfectly hemmed dressed six inch stilettos (though arguably that’s part of it); it means something so much more – it means bringing that extra bit of glamour and simplicity (think Olivia Palermo or Blair Eadie especially in their dressed down looks), to each and every outfit.

Wednesday Night Styling.

So I’m kind of bored right now, but what better way to pass the time than to share some of my favourites from net-a-porter. Today I have quite an extended list, which is good for me because it means I get to spend A LONG time looking at different styling options, and it’s good for you because it means you’ve got more fabulous pieces to ogle at!

Pink.

I’m sure we’re all more than aware that glitter is my favourite colour. However, whenever those really annoying people continue to press me about a “real” favourite colour, I always go with pink – I mean after all, who could hate the colour? Anyway, as you can probably guess, yesterday net-a-porter offered a beautiful assortment of pink picks and here they are. Stella McCartney wowed me twice with her matching coat and dress pink set (FLOTUS perfect or what? I’m thinking Jackie), that could really only be worn with each other unless you have an equally chic pink extra to wear them with. Then RED Valentino (who for today should probably be referred to as PINK Valentino) impressed me with such a cute pink mini dress that I’m looking for a cheaper alternative as we speak I type. Tory Burch rounds off the group with (what I think is my favourite of the lot) a silk jacket, great worn with jeans or a mini skirt, depending on the occasion.

Black.

Who doesn’t love an influx of new black duds even now and again, uh? Interesting today’s picks start and finish with Bottega Veneta, who do not disappoint with their cosy cashmere wrap coat and their trademark woven leather bag. Sure Halloween may have happened a few weeks ago, but that doesn’t mean you can’t vamp it up with Dolce & Gabbana’s sexy lace booties, that would look equally cute with a mini dress of leggings. And then finally Michael Kors has something for those of us who just cannot decide: jersey or leather?

Candy Colours.

A bit of candy makes up for the dreary grey clouds outside and I have to say that the pinks and whites have done their bit in putting a smile on my face.

RED VALENTINO

I really wish this dress was a smidgen shorter, after all, we short girls need some way of making our legs look longer. Anyway, with a pair of super high heels and a little bit of hemming, this dress will look perfect for that certain evening occasion.

THEORY

Okay, so I know I said I was over hating on the peplum trend, but I think I may have been a bit over presumptuous. When I stumbled upon this top I did falter a little because I wasn’t too sure about the overall shape and style of the peplum design, but after a few minutes of contemplation I pulled myself together and I think was able to get to it to work in my head. What a dream.

VALENTINO

The studs on the Valentino clutch give it that understated rockability that works no matter who you are or what your personal style is. I love the little arm band being you can wear it on your wrist without having to hold it up all night, and the size of the clutch means you can literally fit anything you want inside.

VALENTINO

Warning. This cute bag just screams: STUD OVERLOAD, but for some strange reason, instead of making me turn the other way, the studs are beckoning me, making me want the bag even more. Only Valentino could do that to me!
