Happy Wednesday guys!

As you can see, I’m keeping it cool, calm and collected today in a simple pair of jeans and tee, matched with a faux fur coat and hat. The pop of colour on my nails are brightening up these grey January days and keeping me smiling for now.

Told you you’d see another one! This was what I wore the other day before heading out for some drinks in town. I do love this skirt. Monochrome colour palettes are doing a lot for me at the moment, and Gingham print is currently all  the rage. I must say, I do think it’s quite flattering on the curves too…

I’ve never been one for buying the same thing in multiple colours but I’ll admit to owning these sweatshirts in all three of the colours above. I just love the way they cling to your body in all the right places and hang on all the others. They are totally perfect for tucking them into a cute pencil skirt. I do prefer leaving them loose however, and creating ethereal silhouettes as I’m moving to and fro. I’ve added to some additional items here to show you how I would pair them. You would have already seen the monochrome pairing here, but with a different skirt. You may see another pairing soon…! Well done Topshop, you’ve outdone yourself. These tops get not one, but two ticks from me.

Tops available here: pinkmonochrome and, my personal favourite, orange 

Additional items available here: super ripped jeans, leather biker mini, monochrome gingham tube, Nikey’sgecko leather court shoes, clear clutch bag

Happy Birthday Team!!

Yup, you guessed it. Our beloved blog is officially one years old!

Happy Birthday Team Coup

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support. It’s been a fun yet turbulent year. Back in 2012, we started off with two girls, a huge passion for all things fashion and a desire to create a fun, online fashion scrapbook. Together we went to London Fashion Weekend, blogged about ‘things that made us go ooh‘ and gave you a little ‘outfit inspiration‘ here and there. We also had a new addition to our team and, just like that, our little family of fashionistas was made complete. We’re so excited about what the future holds for our blog and so thankful to have you on board. So here’s to a prosperous future, for both us and you!

We thought it would be fun to put a spin on an old classic and take some team photos. Denim shirt and jeans, different shapes and sizes, heels and trainers. Here’s how we each took the basics and emulated different looks.

Team Coup!

My jeans here have a funny little story. I bought them when I was twelve years old. They were low rise flares: so hot back in 1999! Ten years later I had them tailored to have a straight leg fit. Now, six years later, I am itching to have them made into skinnies! 20130813-141917.jpgIMG_7830

We love…Eleonora Carisi


Eleonora Carisi is a store owner and a fashion blogger from Italy with an impeccable style. She is a regular of Milan Fashion Week as a IT Girl for Grazia.it and you might remember, famous for wearing that sheer blouse with no bra to a lunch in Upper-East side…(i know!) which prompted many fashion discussions on a matter of ‘fashion etiquette’.

We love her colourful and girlie style. Never afraid to try wacky accessories and always accentuating female form.
