Morning!

Look familiar? My outfit probably does. Well, what you can see of it! These are a couple of extra shots from my Checkmate outfit post a couple of weeks ago. Elena hasn’t told you this, nor will she ever admit it, but she is a fantastic photographer. Seriously. We don’t always meet to take photos, instead it’s usually coffee, cakes and lots of chit-chat. So when we do, I absolutely love it. El  captured this outfit for me and every photo she took was so beautiful. These are two that I didn’t post but particularly love, especially the first one. Isn’t she a talented girl?Adiyam_signature_the_coup

Mirror Mirror: London Fashion Weekend

As girls behind The Coup, we’ve decided to share what we wore to London Fashion Weekend with you. Here goes!

With so many ‘hot’ trends around this fall, we thought that it was best to hit Westfield Shopping Centre and let the shops inspire our look for London Fashion Weekend. Zara, Pull and Bear, Mango; there were so many shops to choose from, but in the end I had to go for this ‘Casual Luxe’ combo that I put together in Topshop.

 I dolled up my comfy, casual knit with this heavily embellished sequinned skirt.  As there was quite a bit going on with the sequins, it was only right that I neutralised my look with a pair of nude coloured stiletto heels. My jewellery was a concoction of Swarovski crystals, Gucci, Links of London and beautiful beads, straight from India. Chic, comfy yet luxurious; how could I resist? 

Items: Knitted Rib Clean Jumper, £38; Silver Sequin Mini Skirt, £45; Romelia, £70; Gerke, £40; Swarovski Tennis Bracelet, £98; Gucci Bracelet with Boule Chain, £125; Gucci Necklace with Boule Chain and Toggle Closure, £170 Swarovski Ring – old.

As one who loves black, it’s no surprise that it was the first colour I reached for when choosing my outfit. So, for an afternoon at Somerset House I centered my look around my Oasis faux leather mini skirt. I paired it with a black satin vest, long waterfall coat from River Island and accessorized with gorgeous leopard pumps and a matching mini messenger bag. As for jewellery, I kept it minimal with a gold bangle and one gold ring. With red lips and nails to match –  it was classic shade for a classic style! It was simple look but the difference in textures is what made it work for me.
