Specs Appeal.

We all know that I’m a massive of sunglasses – the bigger the better in my opinion – so it’s no surprise that I’m in love with these shades below. The lenses are big enough to cover half of ones face, and the frames are thick and chic enough to make one feel like the coolest girl in the world.

Who says that sunglasses are strictly for summer? I’d rock these rain or shine.

Pallas.

So I think I may have stumbled on something great… Actually no, scratch that, I’m SURE I’ve stumbled upon something great; and that is Parisian brand Pallas.

      

What makes Pallas so great? Well for starters there’s the fact that despite me not being the biggest tuxedo fan for women, I have a sudden urge to own all of their beautifully tailored pieces. I want to wear them with skinny jeans, tees and sneakers for a laid back day look (then swap the sneakers for heels at night); I want to wear them with skin-tight bodycon dresses; I want to wear them with just about anything because I KNOW they would pair so well with everything.

Anyway, crazy-psycho-Alice rambling aside, this is a really cool brand, inspired by Le Smoking (think Yves Saint Laurent), and designed by Daniel Pallas and Veronique Bousquet, who have been featured in Vogue; and they have already inspired me to mix up my look a bit.

Winter Warmers.

It feels like only yesterday we were suffering from a sweltering summer and sleeping on top of the sheets because it was just too hot, and even wearing a thin tee was too much in the heat. Somehow, winter has snuck up on us again and it’s that time of year when we start looking for last winter’s thick knitted jumpers and cosy scarves. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve added a few winter perfect pieces to my net-a-porter wish list, and with winter well and truly upon us, now seems like the perfect time for me to start looking for cheaper alternatives. Check out some of my favourites below.

Alaïa, Louboutin, Rossi.

I don’t know about you, but these last eight days have been insanely tiring, and I think I’m only just beginning to feel the comedown of it all. What with graduating (I’ll share some pictures with you soon), reading for classes, driving, graduation parties, more reading, thinking about future careers, thinking in general; I think I can be forgiven for just wanting to curl up in bed and sleep for the next month. Sadly that’s not exactly an even remotely viable option so instead I’ll just kick back and relax with the help of net-a-porter’s ‘What’s New’ section. This week I’ve become completely enamoured with heels (which in part could be because I basically spent the majority of last week in them), so I was happy to see four pairs that I wouldn’t mind receiving in the post *hint hint*.

Even though this week has been crazy hectic recently, I really don’t see it slowing down, but wouldn’t have it any other way! Check out what else is new here.

2Jours & Follies Cabo.

Fendi and Louboutin were by far THE stand-out pieces from the latest products to be added to net-a-porter this week. The mini shopper evokes all kinds of lady-like glamour that can just as easily be dressed down as it can be dressed up, depending on where you feel more like showing off. And the black embellished pumps with their contrast gold heel made me want to reach through my screen and grab them for myself.

Girl Most Likely.

Olivia Palermo features in this week’s The Edit, where she talks about her surprising [fabulous] wedding outfit from earlier this year, her design collaboration and hopes for the future, gives great style and fashion advice, and just continues to be her incredible amazing and inspiring self.

    

In her interview she also talks about seeing the bigger picture in life and not being ‘short-sighted’ in terms of goals or future prospects. Olivia has something of a ten year plan, which even though it may seem a little too far off, it allows for ‘room to breathe, change and alter the plan’. I definitely feel that at a time when there is so much pressure (both internal and external – especially internal) it’s good to remember that things take time and that there is no hurry to achieve anything.

All we can do is live our lives to the fullest every day and keep moving forward. I really think that Olivia’s way of looking at things with a long-term perspective is something I’m going to try to adopt in my life, which should hopefully lift some of the neurotic and anxious energy from my mind.

I’m telling you, the more I read about Olivia, the more I’m dying to hang out with her. She really does seem like such a cool girl to be friends with. Check out the full interview here.

Wtf Wednesday.

Today has definitely been a ‘what the actual fuck has happened today’ kind of day, with a most apt description being A Series of Unfortunate Events – but I won’t go into that because having to actually live through it was already bad enough. Anyway, what better way to forget about the randomness and stresses of the day, than by sharing a few of my favourite net-a-porter pieces from this week?
