For most of my adult life, I haven’t worn a watch. Until very recently, I didn’t even wear bracelets, because I didn’t like the feeling of something on my wrist. But Baublebar and Kate Spade have fuelled my passion for bracelets, and what is a watch really apart from a bracelet with a pretty useful function?!
Daniel Wellington watches have been on my radar for a while now, as I’ve seen them pop up on a few blogs from time to time. I loved the concept of the interchangeable NATO straps, so when I saw them on sale at Connaught House I decided it was about time to take the plunge!
Red suede heels have become a point of obsession for me, and once I decided I wanted a pair, I started to get a serious case of The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon – they kept appearing everywhere, and I found myself pinning, liking and stumbling across dozens of gorgeous outfits featuring them! Then, when I saw a pair on Tatiana’s Instagram, I knew I had to take the plunge!
When I saw these gorgeous Fern heels in ‘salsa’ from L.K. Bennett, I had to snap them up right away, especially considering there was limited stock on the site!
I’ve mentioned on this blog before how much I love McQueen’s De Manta clutches, which debuted in his final collection, Plato’s Atlantis in 2010. One of the final items designed by McQueen himself before his death, the python De Manta bag holds a special place in fans’ hearts, and was subsequently difficult to come by. However, thanks to the launch of Savage Beauty (the exhibition of McQueen’s work) at the V&A (going tomorrow, so excited!), the piece has been resurrected once more.
This is where my avid collector’s itch begins to bother me – although there’s absolutely no reason for me to own this clutch, as it’s not my style and doesn’t fit with anything in my wardrobe, I still really want to get my hands on a piece of McQueen history. I’ll have to reluctantly pass on this one, but if you’d like to partake, you can pick it up from the V&A’s own site here (priced £465). They have a whole range of Plato’s Atlantis goodies (in my humble opinion, the De Manta is the crown jewel of the entire range) here, as well as some gorgeous skull pieces here – which, as we know, is one of the things McQueen is most famous for. (I’m resisting the urge to purchase the skull bracelet here, considering I’ve just recently bought new Kate Spade and Stella & Dot bracelets!)
Anyway, I’ll leave you with my two favourite McQ accessories which I’ll be wearing with pride at the exhibition tomorrow – my ocelot print De Manta in twill, and some black suede pointed flats.

Everyone loves Game of Thrones, right? You know I do! Like The Hunger Games, it’s one of those franchises that captures my imagination and features some amazing food and fashion! It’s always in the back of my mind, so it’s no surprise that when I saw these beautiful pigeon grasp rings from Tessa Metcalfe at London Fashion Weekend, the first thing I thought of was Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons!
We all have our favourite designers we like to lust after – for dreamy dresses and pretty scarves I love Temperley, for handbags and shoes I love Mulberry, and for structured basics and quirky jewellery I love McQ! I always have a look at The Outnet’s range when I get a chance, and so when I spotted this gorgeous navy skirt I had to share it!
When it comes to yoga, I’m lucky enough to have a local teacher who is brilliant and teaches a class very close to me – but if you don’t live near a teacher or you want to take multiple classes in a week and the cost is starting to mount up, how can you practice at home? I’ve got a few resources I want to share with you!
I’m starting a regular feature to showcase some awesome items I’ve come across on my online travels. First up is an item from Boden, which has seriously stepped up its shoe game in the past couple of seasons. I already own a stunning pair of pointed flats from A/W14, so I was keen to see what they had up their sleeves for summer!
You guys know my heart belongs to French Sole, right? Every year during the sales I try to play hard to get, but alas, I’m always tempted back in by the bargains. Check them out for yourself here!
