check mate

Super simple but relatively effective today in this little ensemble by Equipment Fr and Joie.   I’m constantly chasing a little pop of colour and red stays within the safe boundaries whilst still being a fashion colour.   I love a layer, anything will do.   It will give your outfit a bit more depth so I threw this little Riley tee over the top.   I’m kinda living in these leather Joie shorts, they’re so comfortable and work with so many looks.     The silver rings, earrings and studding on the McQueen heels work well with the metallic grey hardwear on the Chanel Boy.    It’s a nice change from Gold or Silver.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend…much love xx

chunky knit & thigh highs

Lately I’ve been wanting to wear big chunky knits as dresses with my Stuart Weitzman thigh high boots.   There’s something a bit sexy about wearing an over-sized knit and nothing much else.   This piece is seriously special, designed by one of the first labels mum brought in to the country.   In her day, English designer Sara Sturgeon was huge (she stopped designing many years ago) and I have many pieces stored carefully in the wardrobe.  One year when I was fresh out of school, I worked in Paris on the stand at the Pret-a-Porter and in the Sara Sturgeon showroom in London.   It certainly was an amazing experience for a teenager and I learned so much about the industry.

I picked up this Dolce & Gabbana pony hair bag in New York as I desperately needed another leopard piece in my wardrobe (like a hole in the head ; )   The Celine sunglasses have a gold bar across the top so to tie in I’ve added a gold statement ring and hoops from Collette.

Felt like raiding the vintage side of my wardrobe today and pieced together a super cool buckle skirt by the amazing Japanese designer Michiko Koshino with a pleated Nolita blouse and some black ankle boots x
