Marchesa Me Tulle Gown.

When it comes to stand-out gowns that knock you out with their simplicity, beauty, craftsmanship and iconic flair, nobody does it quite like Marchesa. I mean, how perfect is this tulle gown?

Once again Marchesa has hit it out of the park and I am in heaven!

Alphabet 14-karat Gold Earring.

I first added these ultra-cute studs to my wish list back in March, but it wasn’t until last week when I was browsing for a pair of earrings that I stumbled across them (and fell in love with them again). There’s something about personalised things (even if it is just one letter) that I really REALLY love, so whenever I see anything with the potential to be personalised, I fall head over heels in love! Case in point these gold alphabet earrings from Catbird, that are beautiful, chic and simple (and we all know how I love my accessories chic and simple).

      

I wonder which letter (or two) I’ll get? Watch this space 😀

Gentle Monster.

There’s a new brand to net-a-ports that’s grabbed my attention, and it goes by the name of Gentle Monster. Based in South Korea, they describe themselves as: ‘a designer brand that constantly develops itself under the philosophy of “innovational high-end experiments”’. While little else is known about the brand, one thing is of sure and that’s that these pieces are EVERYTHING. I knew I was onto something great when I kept clicking on sunglasses without looking at the brand name, only to discover they I was consistently picking the same brand every time. Check out some of my favourite shades below.

   

I am absolutely OBSESSED and you can expect to see these stunners on here in the future!

Kyoto.

No, not the city, but the sock boot from 3.1 Phillip Lim. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know what sock boots have been all the rage of late (i.e. at least for the last eighteen months); but despite their popularity it’s taken me a little while to get behind the style. In fact, when I first saw the shoe I absolutely hated it. it wasn’t until my sister got a pair that my thoughts started to thaw and bit by bit I started to see their charm. However, it wasn’t until last week (I think) that I came to the realisation that they weren’t all bad – I personally blame Sunmi who rocked the shoe during her recent promotions for her latest single, Gashina – and stopped hating them. Then, on Sunday I made an announcement to my sister that I wanted to get a pair myself, and as if by some kind of magic, about ten minutes later, I stumbled upon these beauties. Now obviously at £525 I’m not planning on buying them anytime soon, but I wanted to share my fashion epiphany and style inspiration.

      

So what do we think? Yay or nay?

p.s If I ever do go to Kyoto, you can sure that I will let you know!

Sweater Season.

The weather may be looking good these days (how great was the weather over the weekend?) but that should distract us from the fact that tomorrow marks the last day of August and that soon the weather will return to its chilly state. To prep for the oncoming cold, I’ve been focusing my shopping efforts on lots of chic and cosy sweaters to wear once summer is done and gone. This season you can expect to find me in skirts, woolly tights and my trusty Supergas!

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.
