Wednesday Pick-Me-Up.

When life gets you down it’s best to distract yourself with frivolous things that are sure you make you feel better, even if it is only for a moment or two. For me, net-a-porter is always the first place I turn to whenever I’m feeling sad, and I can easily spend hours over an hour perusing the site and adding new pieces to my wish list. so today, in an attempt to help stop myself from feeling too down in the dumps, I’m sharing some of my latest faves from net-a-ports.

Thigh’s The Limit.

So, I was minding my own business on net-a-porter (as I do), adding more items to my wish list, when I stumbled across a pair of Stuart Weitzman and Charlotte Olympia thigh high boots. While I’ve long bemoaned the fact that my short legs have prevented me from rocking and being comfortable in anything that goes over the knee, that hasn’t stopped me from (internet) window shopping and looking at a few pairs I would love to wear if I were a few inches taller – a few thousand pounds richer.

Cashmere Moment.

Equipment is renowned for two things: their crushed silk blouses and their buttery soft cashmere knits. When I used worked in Harvey Nichols, I’d practically dive into all the new season pieces, allowing them to glide through my fingers as I fawned over their smooth and luxurious textures. Even before I started working in Harvey Nichols I was a big BIG fan of Equipment and would always be so excited whenever net-a-porter updated their collection. And it looks as though some things never change as when I saw these Equipment dresses, I realised that I needed two cashmere turtleneck dresses.

A/W Inspo.

This past week I’ve been thinking more and more about my autumn/winter, and I’ve been looking around for inspiration on what key pieces I should add. As expected, net-a-porter proved to be a great place for me to source ideas, so now I’ve convinced myself to spend the next few months in miniskirts (with tights of course) and sweaters – here’s hoping I keep it up. Check out my picks below.

Aaaaaaand it’s back! It’s been such a long time since I shared anything other than music my weekly net-a-porter faves, so I’m happy to be back posting what I love most. Today’s picks include cosy winter necessities like jumper dresses, cute accessories – I mean, who doesn’t need a pearl encrusted headband with a detachable veil?, and my all-time favourite: the LBD.

Blair’s Neutrals.

OMG I am DYING over Blair’s outfit!!! As much as I love an all-back/all-white ensemble, there is honestly nothing like wearing head-to-toe brown. Remember when I did it back in 2012? Probably not, so check out the link.

Oh Blair, you have seriously blown me away today. OMG OMG OMG. Talk about having a great start to the day 😀

Naomi Campbell X The Edit.

Many a great woman has graced the cover of net-a-porter’s online mag, The Edit, and this week is no exception with the mighty and formidable Naomi Campbell adorning the latest issue.

Helping hand: The supermodel, who grew up in the fast-paced world of fashion, was offered valuable advice from Nelson Mandela

The pictures are absolutely striking and really took my breath away. I mean, just look at her – WOW!

Still a super: Naomi Campbell may have broken into the industry nearly thirty years ago but at 44, she's better than ever - and proves it in this glossy shoot for The Edit High fashion: She's worked for every major fashion house but Naomi admits that even she gets nervous before a catwalk appearance

Internationally renowned: Along with Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell is without a doubt one of the fashion industry's most famous faces and at 44, she's still going strong

In this week’s Edit, Campbell dishes on how she still gets nervous before shows, her family in the fashion world (because let’s face it, this woman has connections with just about everyone in the industry – from the late Gianni Versace to Azzedine Alaïa and John Galliano), as well as talking about her charity work.

Survivor: She says that as a Gemini, she likes to keep moving and doing things and being there for friends no matter how hectic her life may get

I know that I do call a lot of women amazing role models on here, but Naomi really is one of the greats and she is truly incredible.

Internationally renowned: Along with Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell is without a doubt one of the fashion industry's most famous faces and at 44, she's still going strong
