the coup london blog fashion neon orangeWith Christmas done and dusted, I’m all about the countdown to New Year. I landed in Berlin this morning, ready to welcome to 2015. With that in mind, I opted for fun, neon orange nails; my favourite. You should see what these look like under a UV light…

Hope you had a lovely festive break

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!

IMG_5506For 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?

Happy Monday!

Any one that has had the pleasure (and stress) of rummaging through my wardrobe will vouch for my fondness of colours. In my eyes, all things bright are beautiful.

Mini Neon Dress - TFNC Topshop London

A little under two weeks ago my amazing colleagues treated me to a birthday shopping trip in central London. After spending hours – which felt like minutes – getting lost in Topshop I decided on this mini number by London brand, TFNC.

Now I know the colours are a little on the bright side but I absolutely adore this piece! The focus on block colours meant that it was easier and best to keep my accessories to a minimum. A perfect time to wear those ASOS ‘Hollywood’ heels I bought a couple months ago. Likewise the feathered simplicity of my clutch bag and my timeless, gold Michael Kors piece helped add both texture and jazz.

Now all we need is the sunshine to last…!

Neon Jewels

neon_jewellery_topshop_next_the_coup2Looks like Neon – 2012 trend that is hard to ignore, is here to stay with us a little longer. Only until I started writing this post I have realised that perhaps I have a mini obsession, because all of the jewellery pieces bought since Christmas, happened to be neon!
Above, is the set I got for Christmas from my best friend. Below, Topshop necklace and pink earrings from Next.
neon_jewellery_topshop_next_the_coupWith spring days fast approaching, these zingy items are a super fun way to add some colour! Here is what’s out on the high-street right now.

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.

Look of the Week: Total Fashion Recall

    

The whole world has been watching Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale battle it out on the fashion field of the promotional tour for ‘Total Recall’ movie. That’s why this week it has been very hard to choose ‘Look of the Week’, as both ladies hit the spot with their amazing well put together looks.

Have a look at the two of my favourites and decide for yourself!

Tickle Me Pink
A couple of years ago everyone, including myself, was sporting a pair of feather earrings. As of late I haven’t seen too many people wearing them, but once again they are all over the shops. What I like about feather earrings is that they are quite quirky yet casual, so they can be worn to spruce up most daywear outfits. They also look uber cute on the beach. Next time you hit the high street, pick up a pair to help compliment your summer wardrobe. They are everywhere!
