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).

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.

Wednesday Wish List.

Aaaaaaand it’s back! It’s been such a long time since I shared anything other than music my weekly net-a-porter faves, so I’m happy to be back posting what I love most. Today’s picks include cosy winter necessities like jumper dresses, cute accessories – I mean, who doesn’t need a pearl encrusted headband with a detachable veil?, and my all-time favourite: the LBD.

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.

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.
