The mule sandal

by jamie-lee on July 14, 2014, 5 comments

Opening Ceremony Jindo heeled sandals (in black or the flat version) More sandals for winter – goes against the grain a little, doesn’t it? But given that in mid-July a jacket-less, bare legs excursion outdoors is not out of the question, I’d almost peg them as an evening necessity. Whilst I’m not generally one to […]

The leather jacket

Tibi peplum top (cheaper alternative), Frame Denim jeans, Acne mape leather jacket, Opening Ceremony sandals (similar style), Celine trio Sometimes the best purchases are the ones which you wait months to make. Painstakingly saving every last penny, and forgoing those morning coffees and afternoon pick-me ups just to get there a little quicker. I’ve never […]

Pretty in pink

Stella McCartney ‘lips’ sweatshirt (also available here), OPI nailpolish in ‘Kiss on the Chic’, Aesop hand balm, Karen Walker x Benah sloane satchel (in navy or burgundy) Every girl needs at least one sweatshirt in her closet right? Heather grey and faded black are generally the usual suspects in the fold, yet having spent the […]

beauty bar

Aesop facial cleanser, Aesop B&T Toner, Aesop resurrection hand balm, Diptyque DoSon eau de parfum I’m not usually the first to rush to the beauty counter, but I couldn’t resist dropping by Aesop and Mecca on the way home. Initially, I’d just planned on replenishing my dwindling skincare supply, yet after a good 45 minutes […]

Lavender trio

Celine trio in lavender By no means the obvious choice, yet with my current disposition to all things blue, not entirely unexpected either. Sometimes, there’s no fun in just ‘playing it safe’, which is where the frivolities of an impulse purchase come in to play. Not quite lavender, it seems best described as a brilliant […]

Do I or don’t I? The Alexander Wang ‘Marion’ bag

Alexander Wang ‘marion’ bag Perhaps one of the biggest thrills of shopping online is when the parcel finally arrives in your mailbox. You tear the package open, and inside is just what you were looking for, perfection personified; or something like it. But sometimes, your excitement is met with sheer disappointment, where expectations are not […]

3.1 Phillip Lim black/calf hair ‘quinn’ loafers My high heels have been swapped for flats this week, or more specifically, these sleek black leather and calf hair loafers from Phillip Lim. I’m always a sucker for a flash sale; knowing that there’s a time limit on potentially getting a bargain, or if I’m too slow, […]

bleeding rose

Karen Walker tan bleeding rose sweater I’ve been slowly counting down the days until winter will officially be at its end, and with only 7 days left, I couldn’t be more excited for Spring. The grass just seems that little bit greener, the air is fresher, and Spring blooms breathe life into our gardens. After […]

Kate Sylvester baseball cap Baseball caps. You either love them or you hate them. As it would appear, I seem to be in the former camp. It started innocently enough, as I considered the purchase of a black leather cap, and flew into full blown obsession as I found myself more and more captivated by […]

Weekend dressing

Hope sweater (similar), Topshop skinny jeans, Vintage chelsea boots (similar), Stacker rings I’ve found myself taking an increasingly laidback approach to weekend dressing, finding comfort in the familiarity of a pair of jeans and a jumper – although lately, this hasn’t been too unlike most other days. One of the many benefits of the internet, […]
