This Ted Baker sequin detail clutch bag can be both chic white and flashy gold, depending which way you brush the sequins. So if you think about it, its an ideal office to party bag!

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

Outfit: Valentino Lace

the_coup_valentino_lace_outfit_look_1Finally, here is the outfit that I have promised to show you last week. I wore this look to my mother’s 60th birthday celebration. It was a very special night, so there was a demand for a very special dress. I chose to wear Valentino ribbed lace skirt dress.

A bit of a risqué choice, you would say – a skirt with no lining, but thank god for cleverly positioned panels!

I love it’s bouncy a-line skirt with scalloped hem. The lace itself is absolutely exquisite! I will definitely be wearing this dress for many years from now.

As I have mentioned dress code for the night was ‘cobalt blue’, so I chose complementing accessories. My lovely blue heels are from Dune. They are so comfy, I danced all night! Skinnydip London clutch surely got a lot of attention from everyone that evening.

Now I need another event I can wear this dress to again! P.S. I can never resist doing signature ‘Coup’ jump :)

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!

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!

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!

And these two beauties! Clutches from Primark (left) and Miss Selfridge – perfect for my monochrome wardrobe!

Things that make me go ‘Ohh’!

A statement clutch can either make or break your outfit. As a lover of streamlined btw ensembles , I always look for accessaries that can stand on their own. These Matthew Williamson embellished  suede clutches (£995, from Net-a-Porter) are exquisite! On-trend neon instantly updates lavish looking brocade and with two colours to choose from, you cannot go wrong about updating your look.

Things that make me go ‘Ooh’

this beautifully studded, luxury, raspberry red Gucci clutch. I’m loving the colour coordination of red and gold here, it works perfectly! Beautiful!
