TBT – September ’13

IMG_1513IMG_1506IMG_1557 1IMG_1464It’s crazy to think that our blog, The Coup, has been up and running for two years. I remember the very first day that El told me about her idea: I asked if she wouldn’t mind me getting involved. Just how fast time flies by really is a wonder, especially as you get older. Bar being able to pin your ideas, share them with others and receiving warming emails, the best thing about running a blog has to be the nostalgic feeling one gets as you trawl through your history. I took these photos last September and have tons from this shoot that I hadn’t shared with you. Here are a few extra shots that I like. And ooh that jacket is still one of my favourites!

Feel free to see the full post here for details of what I was wearing

Outfit – Ivy

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.

Courts

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…
