Net-a-Porter wishlist

Net-a-Porter wishlist. I always look forward to receiving that email from Net-a-Porter, letting me know that their twice-yearly sale has begun. It generally involves me quickly opening the site in another tab to see if anything in my wishlist is on sale, and at a slightly more wallet-friendly price.

I managed to pick up a couple of things, one of which is this slouchy black jumper from T by Alexander Wang, which I’ve had my eye on for a wee while. If I had the cash to splurge, I’d probably pick up some of the above items on my wishlist, as I imagine the Alice + Olivia metallic skirt would be perfect for a night on the town paired with a simple silk tank by Kain and a pair of strappy Miu Miu heels. For a more casual look, I love the idea of this Aubin and Wills blazer, worn with a slouchy T by Alexander Wang linen top, Karl sequined shorts, Isabel Marant Merry sandals and an A.P.C cotton tote bag slung over the shoulder. And the best thing about these pieces? The large number of potential combinations since the colour scheme is that good. Guess it’s a good thing that dreams are free!


Wrapped up

Wrapped up. On freezing cold days, like we had this weekend, I find the perfect remedy is an oversized jumper, that engulfs you in its warmth. This Isabel Marant Etoile jumper does exactly that, as well as injecting a little much needed brightness. I’m sure it goes without saying that every year, come winter, I rug myself up in my winter woolies – scarves, jumpers, beanies, you name it. Lately, this has also extended to wearing merino wool tops underneath dresses, for the added layer of warmth, and in an attempt to winter-ise my summer pieces.

Today marks the launch of Woolmark’s “Wrapped in Merino” campaign, which aims to create a record for the World’s Longest Social Scarf. Best part is, that by participating you automatically go in the draw to win one of eight fashion prize packs, including prizes such as Net-a-Porter vouchers and merino wool scarves. Participating is easy – just go to the “Wrapped in Merino” site, pick a photo and create your scarf!


Pale shades

pale shades. Stumbled across these photo’s from earlier in the year when the weather was still kind of sunny. It’s interesting going back to see the types of things that you gravitate towards as the seasons change. In the summer, it was mostly pale greys and blush tones, and as we move into winter, navy and blacks play a major role in the overall colour scheme. I suppose there’s no reason why I couldn’t just add tights and a pair of boots to this look…


AM Eyewear

Proenza Schouler top (similar), Karen Walker skirt, ‘Ally-Jean’ sunglasses c/o AM Eyewear, Gorjana bracelet, ASOS belt (similar)

Essentials. I’d say it’s pretty undeniable that sunglasses are an essential piece in anyone’s wardrobe. While they may get a bit more face-time in the summer, they are just as necessary in the winter months to protect our eyes from the sun.

The lovely folks over at AM Eyewear were kind enough to send me a pair of sunglasses from their latest collection, Riviera Rebellion. Not only are they designed by hand, but they are crafted by hand in a process that can take up to 14 hours, using Mazzachelli acetate – a material that molds to the face and allows for a bespoke fit. This kind of commitment to quality is something that I both admire and appreciate, as it is an indication of a well-made product.

I tend to favor classic shapes and cuts in interesting prints above all else, and these sunglasses in tortoise shell fit the bill perfectly. With my European adventure a month or so off, it’s good to know that I can tick off the sunglasses box on my packing list.


White Magick

White Magick. Since I first stumbled upon lover some 9 years ago, it’s been a label that I have highly coveted, in particular the beautiful lace pieces. Lover’s White Magick capsule collection ressurects a number of lace dresses from previous collections, some of which have had a little bit of a makeover.

Having owned a couple of these dresses pictured above, I can attest to their beauty, and have rekindled my desire for a couple I never managed to get my hands on. It’s a shame this collection is exclusive to their Strand Arcade store, otherwise I could envision myself hunting the far reaches of the internet for them.
