Last Month

I can't believe November is almost over. Where has the time gone? 

November is my birthday month aka the month when I officially get older and (hopefully) wiser. This year it was a quite a sentimental period for me as I spent a lot of time thinking about my life, dreams and goals for the future. I've also made some plans which I'm hoping to implement to change some things that has happened to me over the past few months. However, I'm not going to bore you with details now (Keep checking this space for updates in the New Year)

How did November treat you? Did you do anything exciting?

Party Edit

Festive season is fast approaching giving us an excuse to dress up and shine like a star. However, from experience I know that dressing for parties may at times be a bit of a challenge as it's not always easy to find that 'one' dress. 

Is it too revealing? Are sequins too much? Is black boring? If you have ever asked yourself these questions while standing in front of the mirror in a tiny changing room, then you know what I mean. 

Luckily, this year you have me (only joking :)) to help you pick the perfect party outfit to suit every shape, taste and event. So whether you're after sequins, sparkle or floral, my party edit has got you covered.

Yellow and Grey. Match Made in Heaven

pussy bow blouse

Recently I couldn't fail to notice the revival of pussy bow and tie neck blouses. Although I'm not a blind follower of the latest fashion trends, I have to admit that I'm rather pleased to see that this blouse style is back in full force.

Extra efficient when it comes to getting dressed, pussy bow and tie neck blouses are timeless. As they look perfect with basically everything, today I decided to pair this yellow beauty with checked grey cigarette trousers. To finish off the look, I added beige brogues and one of the coats from my collection. 

What do you think of this ensemble? Are you a fan of pussy bow blouses?

That's a Coat Affair

winter coat

Happy Monday guys! I hope you had a great weekend. It was absolutely freezing here in London but I decided to brave the weather and take some photos for today's post. (At some point during the shoot I thought I was about to turn into an iceberg but I couldn't fail you by not posting today :)).   

Do you remember when a few weeks ago I told you a story about how I spent my Tesco clubcard points to get a new trench coat for autumn (here)?

I did it again and I'm not ashamed! As soon as my Tesco vouchers came in the post, I took to their website to see if there was anything I liked. Luckily, the latest F&F collection had just landed in store so I was spoilt for choice. 

Although there were a few things that caught my eye, I instantly fell in love with this rust coat. I simply adore the colour and the faux fur trim around the collar. As it's detachable, I can easily remove it for a different look.

What do you think about my latest purchase? What's the most savvy way of shopping that you tried?

Winter Wardrobe Wish List

"Baby, it's cold outside!" The lyrics of this song come to my mind every day when I leave the house in the morning.

As the weather here in London has turned cold and rainy, I really wish I could hibernate to escape the misery of winter. Sadly that's not possible so instead I decided to scour the shops in the hope to find clothes that will prevent me from turning into an iceberg.

How do you cope during the colder months? What's your must-have item this season?

Little Black Riding Hood

Do you remember a story about the Little Red Riding Hood who goes to visit her grandma, only to discover that a wolf has eaten the old lady? It was one of my favourite stories when I was a kid and I remember my Mum reading it to me every night before bedtime. 

Today I'm feeling like a Little Black Riding Hood thanks to this amazing cape. Can you believe I bought it a few years ago? It still looks amazing and could easily be mistaken for a designer piece.
