I Want | Mock Croc

Last Sunday Me and El decided to frequent Westfield’s Shopping Centre. It’s been a while since we did a trip together; it appears as though we have swapped our usual indulgences for a whole load of gym’ing, shocking! :) One thing I noticed was a micro trend of mini handbags that has found its way into high street shops. Zara, in particular, currently have a lovely little range of minuscule bags with this Mock Croc Leather piece being my favourite. How cute is this?!

Morning, and Happy Monday to you!

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend. It started a little early for me and El with us taking a trip up to Bath Spa on Friday. Good food, great company and a fun, girlie day out; as you can imagine it was total bliss! Since the weekend has been really chilled but I did get a little overexcited when a fairly large parcel from one of my new favourite stores, & Other Stories, arrived. It’s cute right? You can’t see much of the detail but it has side panels embossed with a reptile-like print. And a little hit of chain detail too – yum! I must say, I think this will make a very good replacement for my Longchamp Le Pliage Tote. Adiyam_signature_the_coup

Clutch Crush


Happy Monday!

How cute was El’s sale post last Friday? I particularly liked the Zara top –  I think it would look uber pretty on. One item that I wished would go in the sale is this clutch bag by Aldo. Talk about making a statement – the concoction of pearls and silver beads makes this piece nothing short of heavenly. Sale or no sale, I’m looking forward to this arriving. I might even wear it with this



Cover me in jewels

skinnydip_london_Byzanthium_Perspex_Embellished_ClutchHere is a sneak preview of my new Byzanthium perspex embellished clutch by Skinnydip London.

A few weeks ago I have attended a very fancy event with dress code – cobalt blue. Skinnydip London clutch was the perfect accessory for the night! Not only that this arm candy is a very generous size,  it was also bedazzled to the max, which meant I could go easy on the jewellery.

Watch this space for my full outfit for the night. Ta-ta!


Added to my wardrobe: River Island mini chain bag

the_coup_river_island_mini_chain_bagAs a total sucker for anything remotely Chanel inspired, I fell hard for this mini cross body bag from River Island. I adore everything about it, it’s petite but not too small size, textured leather, boxy shape and sturdy gold chain. It will come with me everywhere! 


Added to my wardrobe…Aldo bag

aldo_bag_gold_cross_the_coupThis is what an ideal everyday bag looks like! I have not parted with this beauty since I got it from Aldo a month ago. Lovely sturdy shape,  perfect size and bold gold accents. It goes with everything I wear these days!

Feather Clutches

How cute are these little fur balls?! Pat on the back Miss S, you’ve done me proud! Don’t you think they are reminiscent of Little Liffner bags? At a fraction of the price though. Perfect! I’ve just ordered the black one online but I want them both. I’ve always been against buying the same thing in multiple colours. I doubt I’ll be able to resist these though… Dilemma!

Chanel beach bag, anyone?

We have all been watching the coverage in Paris fashion week, patiently waiting for industry’s big guns to show us what to expect in Spring Summer 2013. When Chanel presented their collection, there was one accessory that got everyone buzzing. The hula hoop Chanel quilted bag!I must say it still manages to hold that mesmerising appeal, but not sure how it will work with commuters packed train in the mornings! After lots of speculation, we finally got to hear the idea behind it from Karl Lagerfeld himself. Speaking to Telegraph newspaper, Karl said “It’s for the beach, You need space for the beach towel. And then you can put it into the sand and hang things on it.”

Ah, that explains it!
