Superga X Luisaviaroma.

Can we take a moment to appreciate these dreamy Superga sneakers? When I first saw that Superga would have a special collection with online luxury retailer Luisaviaroma, I knew I had to get in on it (especially after missing the Superga and The Row’s collaboration a few years back 😦 ). These special editions come in velvet and canvas options, ribbon laces and a chunky platform. I can’t wait to wear them out!

    

And I recently spied Superga’s latest collaboration with accessory brand, Charlotte Simone, and the collection looks so cute!

Burberry: The DK88.

You know those pieces that for some unexplainable reason, the moment you lay eyes on them, something clicks deep within and before you know it you’re forgetting about your work and spending most of the morning looking at pictures online and calculating it’d only take two months to save for the beauty? Just me? Well last week during my morning read of emails and newsletters I came across a feature in Coveteur that mentioned this bag, The DK88, and some unexplainable reason, I found myself falling in love instantly, falling through the rabbit hole of Burberry’s website, completely forgetting about all the work that I had to do. While this bag is not usually one I’d give a second glance, I felt a really strong connection to it and (like I mentioned above) started calculating how long it’d take for me to save up; and (like I mentioned above) realised it’d only take two short months (in fact I realised I’d be able to afford it come August payday). But in the hopes of keeping myself on a leash and not going over the top, I figured that if I posted about the bag here, my obsession would slowly fade. Here’s hoping anyway…

Chic, ladylike, available in lots of great colours – like pink – and oh so wearable, I am in L O V E. Isn’t it a real beauty?

Lots of Stripes.

Is there any pattern easier to wear than stripes? Whether it be vertical or horizontal, I’m a sucker for a bit of stripe action. There’s something really laidback and casual (which is definitely my style) about them, yet they never look lazy or messy. I also think stripes help add a bit of dimension to not only the clothes, but to the wearer as well.

While I do love me some stripes, do not be fooled: not all stripes are created equal, as the classic navy-white combination will always reign supreme (but that’s a post for another day).

Wish List Wednesday: Le Specs Liar Liar.

There’s one major item I have on my wish list that I’m hoping to get before the end of the summer, and it’s Le Specs’ ‘Liar Liar’ sunglasses. Oversized, with tortoiseshell and a subtle cat-eye, these truly are the shades of dreams!

   

Truth be told I’ve actually had my eyes on these for a while, so definitely watch this space.

Cardigans for Fall.

We may be in the throes of summer, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look forward to the coming season when temperatures will drop and we’ll be in need of something a little warmer. After my weekly roundup of the latest from net-a-porter, I saw a trend of thick knit cardigans (and jumpers) with various designs that’d look great come September when it’s cooler outside. There was one brand in particular that really stood out to me, Alanui, a newcomer to the site whose cardigans look especially warm and cosy, and would look especially comfy with jeans and sneakers.

     

Check out more from Alanui here.

Wwake.

As a strong believer that less is more, it makes perfect sense that I’d be going crazy over my latest net-a-porter finding: Wwake. Based in New York, Wwake is a fine jewellery line focused on delicate, dainty, stackable pieces that look effortless and super chic. But don’t let the simplicity fool you, as its this same simplicity that makes the pieces truly stand out, and is why my wish list is now currently packed with beautiful gems I’ll be saving up for.

              

Less truly is always more. For more, check them out here.

Rebecca Vallance.

Despite being on the fashion scene since 2011, it’s taken me up until last weekend to discover Rebecca Vallance. The Australian born designer started as a fashion publicist before turning to creating her own brand that has grown from a small local clothing line to an international presence, being stocked in stores like Harvey Nichols and Intermix, as well as on luxury online stores like net-a-porter.

Of her clothing you can expect structured feminine pieces, that while ladylike are not ultra-dainty, but movable stylish garments that cater to the modern woman. You can also expect lots of flamenco-style ruffles and pleats for added texture and character.

    

Though the designs are undeniably great, their price point is also something to look to as it’s not excessively expensive – at least not compared to some other designers.

See more of Rebecca here and here.
