Picture Perfect Pumps

asos bow silk heel

If you’re an avid reader of our blog then you’ll know that we both love a pair of classic heels. Suede or leather, the right pair of pumps can not only transform your outfit but, most importantly, the way you feel about yourself. The stilettos above are simply stunning. The bow detail makes them pretty perfect for injecting a subtle hint of femininity in to your look. They have firmly made it into my shopping basket this September. I’m looking forward to pairing these with a structed midi skirt. Yum!

This Morning…

Iphone_case_floral_rose_paint_the_coupThis quiet Saturday morning I am indulging in a little online shopping. Looking for a new iPhone case, i just can’t decide between these two! Both feature gorgeous hand-painted vintage roses. They remind me of Khokhloma, traditional Russian wood painting, known for vivid flowers. I just can’t help going back to the roots!

Please help me choose! which one do you like best?

Things that make me go ‘Ohh’!

I know, I know, I am supposed to be trying to immerse myself in colour this season, but I cannot resist a a bit of arm candy, ESPECIALLY when it comes in a delicious nude. French Connection have hit it on the nail, this lovely piece is perfection!

Sexy Slip

Embellished Dress Miss SelfridgeLately I’ve been searching high and low for a slip dress. A lot of people shy away from wearing them, but I really want one. I remember my older sister had a nude one about 10 years ago; it was beautiful. Ideally I’m looking for one in an aubergine colour. Specific I know but, hey ho, it would look hot! I found this dress at Miss Selfridge which I’m so going to pick up. It’s a little slip-like, but not enough to quench my thirst. Till I find one though I’m happy with this.

Ooh how badass are these?! I really like (want!) them. The lucid heel adds a perfect touch of edgyness, and breaks down the heaviness of the black. Yum!

Faux Fur Coat

By now, you must have noticed that me and Elena have very distinct yet different looks. If I had to choose one word to describe my besties look, it would have to be sophisticated. From dazzling jewels to fabulous furs, trust me when I say Elena’s wardrobe is simply to.die.for!

After all this time, I’m starting to fall for all things furry. It’s probably all this time I’ve spent with El :).  I’m planning on purchasing a fur coat but I still haven’t laid my eyes on ‘the’ one. I’m not going to get into the politics of whether to go faux or real, that’s a personal thing. This Miss Selfridge dream is a serious contender though. It even feels amazing!

Things that make me go ‘Ooh’: Animal Print & Polka Dots

It’s still very frosty outside, but with shops slowly introducing spring stock it is all getting me very excited for the next season. I look at my wardrobe and ask myself ‘Am I prepared for spring, when it does finally come?

Animal print is always on my mind. Sorry, I keep going on and on about it, but it’s an uncontrollable obsession. I always try to incorporate this print into an outfit in minimalist way, even if it means holding myself back from doing an all over print overdose.

What’s so wonderful about these items in particular, you say?
Well, it’s quite simple – they do half of the job of mixing print for you.

I love how NEWBARK clutch incorporated polka dots with animal print, this unusual combination surprisingly works. And CHARLOTTE D’ORSAY pumps carry a zingy colour injection for that fresh spring feel.

I just cannot wait for spring to come!

Wild Zebra

jennings-larrson-swedish-british-zebra-leather-fashion-watcI love a good watch. For me wearing a watch is a must with every outfit. Often they are all too hard to find but I’m seriously lusting after this stunning Larsson and Jennings creation. Aptly named Wild Zebra, this one is part of the limited edition Safari Series. To buy or not to buy…! 

Outfit Inspiration – Aztec

Sandre Aztec Sequin Mini DressI’m in love with this Sandre Aztec Sequin Mini Dress. I must admit, I’ve never purchased anything from Missguided before but I can’t wait to have this piece in my wardrobe. I’d pair this with minimalistic, strappy white sandals though. Perhaps these River Island ‘Barely There’ beauties?

H&M Trend Leopard

Stella McCartney inspired? Perhaps! But as soon as I saw this leopard print, I fell in love! I can already imagine living in these leopard printed trousers in spring time, paired with black patent stiletto and a simple tank….Leopard print jacket thrown over a casual outfit…

Things that make me go ‘Ohh’!

Oh What are you doing to me Pierre Hardy? These heels are like candy, completely irresistible! Staying true to Pierre Hardy’s geometric designs, these babies create an updated take on colour blocking. I would pair them up with an all black outfit, to help make that ‘wow’ statement.

Things that make me go ‘Ooh’!

Autumn blues are kicking in, time to start thinking about a beach holiday perhaps? These Miu Miu glittered sunglasses are just the thing to put you in a good mood. On top the overall cuteness they have this ‘In Vogue’ Cat-eye shape, I think this will be a great investment! Available from Net-a-Porter.

Things that make me go ‘Ohh’!

I have been looking for a ‘WOW’ coat for quite some time now. This Autumn I don’t want to blend in with the sea of black and navy, so going through tons of stores, boutiques and online in search of a piece that either had a vibrant colour or a strong graphic print, has been a long process. Today I am very happy to finally announce that here is it- the ‘OH MY ‘ coat of the season. The winner is Christopher Kane Leopard-print coat, £1.380 (available from Matches Fashion). This coat ticks all of the boxes. With an uber modern take on animal print, it truly represents designer’s bold aesthetic vision. The ‘no button’ design works very well when you just want something to trow over a sweater. Now, the only thing I need to worry about is how to start saving…
