Outfit for the Office: Pink Peplum & Python

next peplum pink lace topI have to admit that I was looking at this Next lace peplum top for months, having tried it on a few times in the store in both colour combinations (also comes in navy); I have decided to take the plunge and part with £50. And oh my, this has been a very good investment!

Paired it with a simple tight fitting midi skirt from Topshop, which is so soft and stretchy, perfect for the whole day of sitting by the desk!

Patiently waiting for the perfect moment to wear ‘Arieta’ heels by Carvela Kurt Geiger and it has finally arrived! Having purchased this pair all the way back in September, I couldn’t wait to create an office look with them.

It’s in the Bag!


This weekend has been a very good shopping one -I have left with a bargain and a treat! I would like to say that I am a very organised shopper, never buy on impulse and always think about items for a while before going for it. There is no point of owning something that just lives in your closet, every piece deserves to see the day light…or moon night. And it feels just so much better when you spend your money on something that you absolutely love!

These heels were on my mind for a while. I have passed Kurt Geiger shops many many times, seeing them on a shelf, but this weekend I have taken the further step and tried them on. Once I did there was no going back! Unbelievably comfortable pair of heels is a must have, especially when they look so cute! Snake print is super hot for this season so that’s a double whammy, Im a happy girl!

This Aldo bag has reminded me of the time in Rome, this spring, when I stood in front of Valentino boutique, drooling at their new collection. They had a number of studded totes and purses and if you have been reading this blog for a while you know how I feel about studs! Unfortunately with prices from £1600 for a medium sized bag,  there was no way to justify it. But once I saw this one, I couldn’t resist!

Get to Know…Kate Spade

Westfield Store (photo by The Coup)

I get so excited when I get introduced to a new label! That’s exactly what happened when I wondered into a new Kate Spade New York store in Westfield (White City) shopping centre. This boutique is lovely, ambient and all of the products were presented with great style and composition. I must have spent good 20 minutes walking through the shop, constantly stopping, looking and touching every item. From clothes to jewellery, to bags and shoes, you see the trademark Kate Spade’s design being carried through.


It all started in 1993, when Kate Brosnahan Spade set out to design the perfect bag. She created only 6 silhouettes, playing with sleek colour palettes and textures. Everyone fell for that fresh take on the everyday accessory and from then on Kate Spade New York with its graphic approach and trademark became a visually recognisable brand all over the world.


In 2012 you see this brand carry it’s colourful design through handbags and clothing, jewellery, shoes, stationery, eyewear, baby, fragrance, tabletop, bedding and gifts.

At the average price of £200 for a designer bag – it is very good value. You can see one of them being featured in your ‘Work It’ bag post here. Cannot wait to pop in there for another look next time I am in Westfield! http://www.katespade.com
