This time last year I have debuted my lovely Valentino dress here. I remember this day clearly, prancing around in Spring sun. A year later I am still in love with it as much as when I first tried it on. It’s a shame I do not have enough fancy occasions to wear it to!
I have however made the most of these blue sandals from Dune. I saw that they extended Hydro line with iridescent pink and gold versions… Very tempting!
Unlike a lot of my colleagues I do love an office christmas party! It’s a perfect time to mingle with your friends, have a few drinks and perhaps talk to new faces that you’ve never had a chance to speak to. This year we had our Christmas get-together in a pub by Tower Bridge, so perhaps i was a little over dressed, but hey, it’s that time of year when you can get away with it!
My Zara TRF dress with layered skirt is still available online, but now only in navy, which i think still makes it a banger of a dress!

Sales have come to the high street! Don’t you just love a good bargain? I decided to be very organised and check them out before all the good stuff is gone. Here are the items that I have added to my basket.

Dress shopping – it’s tricky business. It’s funny because me and El have both been searching high and low for fancy dresses. You’ve already seen El’s selection of dresses here right? Luckily I believe she has found the one, which is absolutely stunning, but I’ll behave and leave that story for El to tell. For now, here’s the dress I’m planning to wear to a wedding I have coming up in July. Its blush colour is uber cute and the lower layers create a beautiful ethereal feel. I’ll have to be extra cautious with the accessories I choose to pair this with. Decisions, decisions; we’ll see what I go with.

Here at The Coup we love to keep you updated when it comes to hot celebrity high street collaborations. Most recent to be unveiled is Rochelle Humes for Very.co.uk. I am absolutely in love with this collection that Rochelle from Saturdays designed and modelled. Not so much for her persona but for the designs themselves that are right up my street. Girlie dresses, sexy silhouettes and lovely prints, I can help but want every piece!
Drawing inspiration from her personal style she has created 19-piece capsule collection, first few items of which will appear on their website tomorrow!
What do you guys think? Lovely additions to a summer wardrobe or what?
May – my month! I have a feeling it’s going to be a good one this year… :)
Hope you guys have had a good week. Apologies for the radio silence, it’s been a hectic one for me. I handed in one of my final assessments for uni on Tuesday. Gosh, I can’t wait till I finish my course in September!
For now though, I’m just happy it’s Friday. The sun making more and more frequent appearances is reminding me that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Hoping to compliment that light, I’m wearing a distinctively effeminate summer dress today. I hope you all enjoy your weekend. My fun will be starting at Janelle Monae’s London gig tonight. Is excited a word?

Lately 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.
Linear Cami Dress – Miss Selfridge
Love this drape dress by H&M. The cut, the colour and the price. At only £14.99 it’s a bargain, I’m so tempted to buy it in every colour…! I snapped it up about 3 weeks ago. It’s gorgeous on. I wore it the other day and the compliments wouldn’t stop rolling in. I’ll dress it up for you soon!

Finally, 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 :)

I’m holding my breath until I can unpack my summer wardrobe and get all cute outfits and shoes out. White I wait I can’t help but do some shopping around.
I follow two girls, owners of Sabo Skirt shop, on Instagram and can’t help but fall in love with these cute pieces they have stocked in their store. They have a really good eye for picking colorful and sexy outfits!
Maybe I might just try a bit more color for this coming season!
This River Island green asymmetric slip dress is guaranteed to get hearts racing these holidays.

This Topshop sequin velvet dress is a guaranteed hit with a girl who likes a bit of sparkle!
I’m putting a spin on the old LBD classic and today turning to navy instead. Likewise, a pair of minimalistic heels: perfect for brightening the block colour.
