Gowns, Gowns, Gowns.

While it’s true it’s not every day I’m able to wear a fancy gown… in fact come to think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever worn one, but that doesn’t stop my undying appreciation for a floor-length dress with a bit of character and charm. Though some are not ones that would usually appeal to me (Marchesa I’m looking at you even though I’ve been in love with you gowns for at least over a decade), there’s still something about all of them that I love. Case in point, the gowns below that drew my attention for various reasons.

LBD Inspiration.

As always, I’m on the lookout for some new LBDs – I mean after all, a woman can never have too many and apparently I don’t quite own enough – so where better to check out inspiration than net-a-porter which I always bristling with fabulous ideas. Check out my favourites below.

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.

White on White Jersey.

Here are the next couple of new things on net-a-porter that made it onto my wish list. While I don’t wear a whole lot white (in fact I don’t think I actually even own anything white, save for the odd tee), it’s one of those colours that looks so clean, crisp and fresh, that whenever you wear it, or see someone else wearing it, you feel all sorts of ethereal energies. Introducing new brand, 1205, and old favourites; Clu and Oak.

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.

Friday Foursome.

Yeah so the novelty of it being Friday may have worn off (unless you couldn’t tell today is Saturday), but that won’t stop me from celebrating a few of my new favourites that made my net-a-porter wish list.

Wednesday’s are the Best.

Wednesday’s really are the best, well at this Wednesday seems to be on net-a-porter. I don’t think I’ve fallen in love with so many amazing pieces in such a long time.

GIANVITO ROSSI

Gianvito just keeps getting better and better. Nothing beats a simple suede nude heel. Perfect for day and night.

SAINT LAURENT

I’m getting sunglass fever again! These shades are just PERFECT and would make a beautiful addition to my sunglasses family.

GIANVITO ROSSI

You won’t go ignored in these red heels. The heels give just enough height for those who want to wear heels, but don’t feel like looking too dressed up and formal.

THEORY

Theory has become my second favourite brand when it comes to luxury shirts (I’m sorry, but you’ll have to try something different if you knock Equipment from the top of that fantasy list). The shirts are of simple design which is something that I look for more than anything when it comes to fashion and style; and this shirt does NOT disappoint. And the colour is just peachy.

SAINT LAURENT

Saint Laurent has been killing it in the bag stakes recently. Their simple designs are similar to that of Hermès and Longchamp, and I wish more than anything that I could get my hands on a few of them. This convenient reversible bag really hits the spot, though I think I’d only carry it with the full grey facing out.

THEORY

Another reason why I love Theory. This is something that I could definitely wear to work and would be great for going out after work as well because it’s black, looks sleek and is simply effortless.

A classic stiletto that every girl needs to own. I can’t wait to get mine.

TEMPERLEY LONDON

This top has just enough glitz to make it stand out from your ordinary black blouse, but not too much that’ll make a simple girl like me run for the hills. Again, this is something that I could see wearing to work, as well as for meeting up with friends. The colour makes it perfect for evening wear too!
