Party Special: Ted Baker’s Sequina

ted_baker_sequina_bagted_baker_sequina_bagI have been given this SEQUINA bag for my birthday earlier this year and since then i have been saving it for a perfect party. And it officially can’t get any more perfect than NYE!

This Ted Baker sequin detail clutch bag can be both chic white and flashy gold, depending which way you brush the sequins. So if you think about it, its an ideal office to party bag!

So November came and went in the blink of an eye, literally. I don’t really know where the month went but it was a good one at that. I’ve booked a trip to Berlin over New Years, exciting! Berlin has always been a favourite city of mine so spending NYE there will be pretty epic although I’m going to have to practice wearing practical, warm clothing more similarly to what I’m wearing today. Typically I would have paired this cute jumper dress with some chunky boots but its.just.too.cold! December’s has always been a month when comfort comes first so the heels may be on hold for a while.

Hope you have a great weekend beauts!

Hey Livi!

IMG_3355Nothing beats a good ol’ watch. Practical, purposeful and (bonus!!) pretty as hell when it’s made by British brand Olivia Burton London .

I first ‘clocked’ this watch (gedd’it?!) about a week ago on fellow Kenzas’ blog. As an avid watch-wearer I have a decent collection that seems to be growing in size swiftly. I’ll give you a sneak peak some time soon. For now though, say hello to my latest addition…

White leather combined with rose gold to emulate a timeless, vintage look. For me, the combination is simply stunning. And… a perfect transitional summer piece. What d’ya think? I think I’ll be putting Michael aside for the next few weeks!

Outfit – Modern Classic

IMG_0595I’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.

Outfit Inspiration – Aztec

Sandre Aztec Sequin Mini DressI’m in love with this Sandre Aztec Sequin Mini Dress. I must admit, I’ve never purchased anything from Missguided before but I can’t wait to have this piece in my wardrobe. I’d pair this with minimalistic, strappy white sandals though. Perhaps these River Island ‘Barely There’ beauties?

Outfit Inspiration – All White

As a child I remember that by May the sun would always be shining and eating ice – cream, watermelon and the various edible treats that we attribute to the summer season were daily treats. Although the thick of summer is yet to come, if you’re anything like me you’d have started thinking about your summer wardrobe. If there’s one colour essential to your summer wardrobe this year it’ll be white. Here’s a little simple but cute outfit inspiration for those summer days that’ll hopefully be arriving soon…

White Dress and Denim Jacket Outfit

Things That Make Me Go ‘Ooh’

It looks like Kurt is also getting involved in this season’s oversize trend. I can just picture how amazing these shoes would look worn with wide leg trousers and an oversize coat or, equally, with a silhouette dress. Such wedge perfection. I love the crisp, white look too!

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

Topshop Wedding

Have you heard?! Topshop has rolled out it’s first ever wedding collection by Richard Nicoll. Known for his eye for detail, minimalist shapes and modern styling, these pieces go perfectly with Topshop’s brand, creating a very fashion forward bride. There is something incredibly fresh about this collection as I find majority of wedding dresses to be quite predictable and boring. Especially with high-street lacking real beautiful attire for that special day, I think this will go down a storm!
