I Got Them: Le Specs Liar Liar.

So what do you know? I finally bought the sunglasses I’ve had on my wish list for a few months, and as expected I’m kind of obsessed with them! Expect to see more of them on my Instagram.

I also decided to treat myself to another pair of sunglasses that you’ll also be able to see on here soon. If you’re not already, make sure you follow me on Instagram.

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!

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!

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).

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.

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.

RE/DONE.

There’s a new denim sheriff in town and it goes by the name of RE/DONE. Founded by Sean Barron and Jamie Mazur, RE/DONE is so much more than a denim company, having first started online before growing into the e-commerce brand it is today.

      

While I’ve never really been crazy about jeans – I only own one pair – when I first saw their jeans, there was something about them that I couldn’t ignore, so now naturally I’m in need of practically every pair they make, including one very chic denim mini skirt that reminds me of teenage style years. They recently started selling on net-a-porter (which is where I actually discovered them a few weeks ago – and yes my wish list is full of their pieces) and I’ve been spotting their jeans everywhere, ever since.

You’re sure to be seeing a lot more of RE/DONE in the future. Check them out here and here.
