Astrological Fashion Blogging.

With Mars moving out of my sign and into Sagittarius, it’s fair to say that I’m of no use to anyone at the moment, unless negativity and a bad attitude is what people want – hey, I could be wrong, but I’m fairly certain my bad mood should be kept to myself until I can snap out of this funk. Anyways, what better way to pass the time and try to get my mind off everything else than by blogging some of my favourite pieces from net-a-porter? I guess blogging about luxe clothes is my equivalent to spending money I most definitely don’t have on them. Oh well, anything to get me feeling back to my old self again.

Kotur #getsmartbag Elaphe Clutch.

Quite possibly THE most genius idea for a clutch I’ve ever seen (though I feel like if there was a built-in charger I’d buy this in a heartbeat), Kotur has brought out a clutch small enough to carry just your phone and either a stick of lipstick or mascara, and that trusty piece of ID and card for a night out. This clutch doubles up as a phone case if you want to be able to see your phone at all times, but don’t want to hassle of having to carry it around in your hand.

Notte by Marchesa Embroidered Dress.

This dress makes me wish that I’m twenty six, attending a fancy summer’s evening event with a hunky guy on my arm, looking for the perfect dress. The detail is most exquisite and exudes a playful yet sophisticated ultra luxe vibe, making this dress perfect for any occasion. I would wear this with simple natural looking makeup, and with my hair either pulled back in a high ponytail or a in sleek bun. See below for styling suggestions.

This rose adorned dress reminds me of that Elie Saab gown Halle Berry wore when she won her Oscar back in 2002, but with a super pink and girly twist.

J.W.A, Marchesa, D&G.

There were WAY too many fabulous pieces to share with you, so I’ve condensed the list down a little bit. J.W.Anderson takes an otherwise ordinary wardrobe staple, and manages to make it look like an architectural moment you’d find in Barcelona or Prague. Marchesa also rocks the house with their floral number, that while I’m still a little iffy on it, I can’t resist staring at it and imagining myself twirling round for days. And finally, D&G stick to their classic ladylike aesthetic, and have lots of fun playing around with black lace. While these pieces may seem a tad wild, there’s a tone of simplicity running through each design, making them even more striking.

Clutch It, Bring It Bag.

For those of you who grew up with an older brother who loved rap music, you’ll understand when I say that those early rap songs are pretty hard to just forget. Now you’re probably wondering what the hell rap noughties rap music has to do with net-a-porter, so let me explain. As I was going through the latest designer duds on net-a-porter this morning, I came across quite a few clothes and bags that I felt deserved their very own post, instead of being lumped together with the clothes (like I usually do). For some strange reason, while I was figuring out what to title this post, the 2006 Busta Rhymes song ‘Touch It’ popped into my head immediately and the rest as they say was history – I had my title. Now for those of you who are unfamiliar with the chorus of the song, it goes a little something like this: “touch it, bring it babe, watch it, turn it, leave it, stop, format it”. Anyway, onto the bags…

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.

Gold.

I guess you could say that today is just one of those boring Mondays when nothing particularly exciting happens, on in the case of net-a-porter, one of those Mondays when there aren’t many fab pieces to ogle at.

KOTUR

This is a new designer to net-a-porter and I’m excited to see what other pieces they’ll be coming out with over the next couple of seasons (or however long they stay with net-a-ports).

OSCAR DE LA RENTA

I’m pretty sure I’ve seen and posted something similar to this sequined sweater, but there’s no such thing as having too much of a good thing. A little sparkle goes a long way and I couldn’t think of anything better than pairing with some dark skinny jeans and flats.
