Music Style Icon Inspired

I love when two of my favourite things come together to create something great, which in this case would be fashion and music. Online luxury retailer Farfetch, is the first brand to integrate Apple Music into its app, iOS and website to create a more enjoyable shopping experience. To celebrate this new partnership and their two new playlists, Farfetch asked bloggers to recreate outfits inspired by music style icons.

I’ve been a big fan of the double denim look aka the Canadian suit for longer than I can remember (probably ever since Britney and Justin’s now infamous music award outfit), and it’s one of my favourite looks to rock, so when I saw a picture of Rihanna having a double denim moment, I knew exactly what kind of outfit I wanted to create.

     

Instead of the traditional denim fabric, but still wanting to keep that essence of texture denim has, I chose a light blue floral lace shirt from Nº21 and paired it with a pair of similar colour jeans. The lace puts a twist on the classic double denim look, but still looks chic and easy to wear.

Jewels & Dresses.

Oooh, two net-a-port posts in two days… can you tell I’m procrastinating? Just kidding I’m not, I’ve just hit a wall. Anyway, while I try to get over this mental block, I thought a little browse on net-a-porter would do the trick. Today’s picks are jewels and dresses (everything a girl needs in life) that can all be styled with these awesome platform Eytys sneakers. While I’m usually not a fan of the flatform sneaker, I’ve had my eyes on these particular ones for a few months now and I wish soooo badly that I could own them. To show my love for the sneaker (and to mix things up a bit) I’ll be featuring these sneakers in every Styling Suggestion, to bring a laid back and casual feel to my favourite pieces. I hope you like it.

Thigh’s The Limit.

So, I was minding my own business on net-a-porter (as I do), adding more items to my wish list, when I stumbled across a pair of Stuart Weitzman and Charlotte Olympia thigh high boots. While I’ve long bemoaned the fact that my short legs have prevented me from rocking and being comfortable in anything that goes over the knee, that hasn’t stopped me from (internet) window shopping and looking at a few pairs I would love to wear if I were a few inches taller – a few thousand pounds richer.

Cocktails in Wonderland.

By this point you know that I love dressing casual and sharing my favourite casual pieces. By this point, you also know that I love me some glitter, tulle, frills and all things pink and girly. So when I saw FarFetch’s Christmas season editorial I was ecstatic. There was glitter, embellishments, tulle, ruffles, pink… the list goes on, all in the form of beautiful pieces from designers such as Oscar de la Renta (you know how obsessed I am), Saint Laurent, Valentino and more!

This^^ Oscar dress is by far my favourite. I love the embellishments, I love the tulle, I love the organza, I love the shape, I love the colour – can I just live in it please?

These pieces definitely make you feel as though you’re in wonderland, which is in keeping with their concept. Can’t you just imagine floating up to Christmas dinner in these? Oooh, so dreamy.

What I love the most about the editorial is that it offers a twist to the classic party season pieces that everyone loves. Every piece is whimsical and feminine, but there’s also an element of drama and intrigue, making the looks unique.

Sidebar: doesn’t the model look stunning? The hair and makeup is EVERYTHING in these shots. Ugh she’s so pretty!!

It obviously goes without saying that I want to own every single last piece shown above – I mean what girl wouldn’t? For more, make sure you check out FarFetch.

A/W Inspo.

This past week I’ve been thinking more and more about my autumn/winter, and I’ve been looking around for inspiration on what key pieces I should add. As expected, net-a-porter proved to be a great place for me to source ideas, so now I’ve convinced myself to spend the next few months in miniskirts (with tights of course) and sweaters – here’s hoping I keep it up. Check out my picks below.

Five Favourites Thursday: Bags.

I haven’t shared any of the latest additions to my net-a-porter wish list for quite a while, so I thought I’d use today’s ‘Five Favourites’ to get you all up to speed on the five bags I’m lusting after.

Pallas.

So I think I may have stumbled on something great… Actually no, scratch that, I’m SURE I’ve stumbled upon something great; and that is Parisian brand Pallas.

      

What makes Pallas so great? Well for starters there’s the fact that despite me not being the biggest tuxedo fan for women, I have a sudden urge to own all of their beautifully tailored pieces. I want to wear them with skinny jeans, tees and sneakers for a laid back day look (then swap the sneakers for heels at night); I want to wear them with skin-tight bodycon dresses; I want to wear them with just about anything because I KNOW they would pair so well with everything.

Anyway, crazy-psycho-Alice rambling aside, this is a really cool brand, inspired by Le Smoking (think Yves Saint Laurent), and designed by Daniel Pallas and Veronique Bousquet, who have been featured in Vogue; and they have already inspired me to mix up my look a bit.

Super massive gold star to these guys! And you can check out more here.
