Sun Mini Mini.

I’ve been in love with Mansur Gavriel ever since they first launched on net-a-porter. And though it took me some time to admit it, I’ve been in love with mini bags for a while too. I love the unique shapes and lines that Mansur Gavriel products have, and I love how they branched out from their iconic bucket bags, to chic footwear that is just as stylish and classic. With the case of mini bags, I just love how miniature and small they are and how cute they look.

       

So imagine my delight when doing my weekly perusal, I came across Mansur Gavriel’s latest offering: the Sun Mini Mini. Sun Mini Mini has probably got to be the cutest mini bag range I’ve ever seen (sorry Fendi). Everything from the size, to the drawstring, right down to the trademark bow detail, I am in love.

     

What’s more, these cute bags come in a variety of colours… and guess what? Yes, I want them all…

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.

Blair’s Black, White and Red.

I’m starting to feel that perhaps I should dedicate this whole blog to Blair’s faultless style, seeing as I’m always posting her outfit pics on here. Anyway, once again Blair gets it right with her chic and simple black, white and red look. If there were ever three colours that went so swimmingly well together: these are it!

Beckham, Oak and Maje.

Victoria Beckham leads the designer pack in today’s favourite picks. While her ‘Denise’ ponte dress may need to be taken up a few inches if I were to wear it, the blush pink and contrast black mesh is a killer combination that I’d love to rock for a night of fun and dancing, or better yet to rule the boardroom with some crazy high stilettos.  Every girl definitely needs as many LBDs as she can shake a stick at, especially one that is all bodycon on top, but then offers something a little different with a flirty flared skirt at the bottom. Oak knows how to make sure you feel as comfy as you look chic while resting at home and catching up with all your favourite TV shows, especially with their super chic white cardigan that I’d wear (oversized of course!) slung lazily over a pair of black leggings and a long tee. This cute Victoria Beckham mini skirt is just the thing I’ve been looking for (and believe me have I been looking) that would go nicely with practically everything. Maje obviously knew what they were talking about naming this jacket ‘Dream’, because it is all that and so so much more!

The Net-A-Porter Newcomers.

Today’s wish list picks sees two new and exclusive luxury brands to net-a-porter, and I have to say that I’ve already fallen under their spell. Mansur Gavriel’s spaciously simple and elegant tote has been swooning all sorts of crazy; with the unexpected pop of the interior red – can I get a sexy or what? Then jewellery newcomer, Hervé van der Straeten, makes me want to start wearing jewellery (necklaces in particular) every single day for the rest of my life, which says a lot considering that jewellery posts on this blog are at the barest minimum. Net-a-porter regulars, Erickson Beamon and J. Crew, provide expected pleasures in the form of stunning enamel and gold plated drop earrings (that I’d love to rock *hint hint*) and a pair  of so elegantly styled simple crepe pants.
