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!
A fitted top, structured skirt and minimalistic heels – sometimes you’ve just got to keep it classic and clean. The drop in the temperature has encouraged me to play with texture instead of colour. So today, I’m keeping it simple with a little black number. Couldn’t resist a hint of colour though, hence the nails. Bisous beauts, have a great day!

Slightly disappointed with these beautiful heels by ASOS. They are gorgeous to look at but don’t have the same impact when they’re on. Something doesn’t quite fit right and the heel is awkwardly high, which makes them fairly uncomfortable. Annoying, especially as they took about two weeks for me to locate them. I was going to keep them just because they’re pretty but that wouldn’t be very sensible of me would it?! Aah well, it’s back to you ASOS. However, if you’d like to try them on for yourself you can do so here…
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!
Picture Perfect Pointed Pumps – ASOS
Hi all! Remember my search for perfect patent pumps back in March? Well I can finally say that the search has ended! More precisely ended as soon as I stepped into an Aldo store on Oxford street…
How sexy are these Livergnano pumps? They add an elegant touch to any look. I look forward to dressing them up and dressing them down… wearing all summer around!
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 :)

Good morning Monday. Good morning you!
You probably noticed that I fell short on posting any outfits last week. Juggling copious amounts of work sucked all the creativity out of me. But after spending the weekend with friends, celebrating a good time, I feel like I’m back on form. Woop! Soooo, with that in mind, I thought I’d give you something a little extra special today… *wink wink*
I can’t actually remember the last time I felt compelled to buy a piece without an event in mind. Until I saw this breathtaking piece by Sweden’s new powerhouse designers, Ivy Revel.
When the dons at the Ivy Revel first launched their collection back in summer 2013, this was the dress that stood out to me. Black + backless = hot! The added lace high neck also adds a dynamic twist to this sexy little number.
The first batch sold out instantly so I couldn’t risk not getting my hands on one when an additional few were launched. I ordered it about 2 weeks ago, and was pleasantly surprised by the no-fuss, super fast delivery.
It’s gorgeous. It also does all the talking for you so you can keep additional accessories to a minimum. As to where I will be wearing this saucy little number I haven’t got anywhere particularly in mind. Almost certainly though, I’ll be saving it for that extra special date night!
You have yourself a nice day now.
Denver Dress – Ivy Revel; Gecko Courts – Topshop (first seen here); Faux Fur Coat – H&M (similar here); and for those of you wondering what bra to go for, I went for this
Morning birds and bees!
I realised that I didn’t show you my new court shoes. You saw them in Fridays outfit post but there’s no close up shots. I bought these about 2 weeks ago and decided to go for something with a little twist, hence the sling backs. As of late I’m getting really good at strutting my stuff in heels. Okay, I don’t exactly strut but you know what I mean. Whoever said practise makes perfect just may have had a point…
Gecko Black Leather Courts – Topshop
Trying to dress for this unpredictable weather is tricky business. So, this year for LFW, I decided to keep it pretty simple. Polo neck and jeans, spruced up with a pair of classic suede heels. Ooh I haven’t shown you these beauties yet. Here, have a close up:
A dose of sexy toe cleavage for ya! Ha. On a serious note, these heels are extremely comfy; I could easily spend a whole day in them. Result!

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!

Spoil yourself with these lux Zara gold strappy sandals
This is what I wore yesterday. A casual tee, dressed up with a fitted midi and a pair of heels. And also my French Connection ‘Let It Be Rock’ studded leather coat. You might remember me lusting over it last year…!
I love the detail on the arms. I can’t lie; it’s quite heavy to wear. But it does the trick when I want to spruce up a simple outfit.
Representing for my team…
Team nerd all the way!
Have a beautiful day
