My Sam Edelman Studded Pax Booties

Do you remember a really long time ago, back in September 2010, I said I was obsessed with the Sam Edelman Studded Pax booties, but I couldn’t afford the price of them? Well, about 4 months ago they appeared on Gilt Groupe at a heavily discounted price during a Sam Edelman sale and I snapped them up in an instant! I was so beyond excited about getting them!

The shipping took quite a while since they came from America, but they were worth the wait! I think I got them about a month and a half after ordering them, but I couldn’t be happier. I already adore my Sam Edelman Petty booties, so it’s great to add these to my boot collection! I’ve worn them twice so far and can’t wait to wear them more! I don’t even mind that they are quite heavy. Do you love them too?

Also, as a side note, tomorrow is the day I am transitioning over to self hosted. There shouldn’t be any downtime during the change over, but if there are any glitches or anything, don’t worry as it’s only temporary. I’m not sure if any comments left tomorrow will be affected by the change though. I hope not!

J Brand Coated Red, Blue Satchel & Zebra Print

I wore this outfit on Saturday last week and I love how it turned out. I used to like pairing red, black and white with leopard, but this time I opted for something different and decided to pair it with zebra! You might remember these jeans from this post, thankfully they are a lot more comfortable to wear now that I’ve worn them quite a few times. I love them! I also decided the blue satchel would really pop against the colours.

I’m wearing my J Brand 901 Coated Red leggings, an ASOS cream top, blue Satchel and Mouse ring, a Topshop black Biker jacket, a Zara Zebra and Berry scarf and my River Island black wedge boots.

What do you think of my outfit? I would actually say that I still have an obsession with red jeans, especially coated ones. I think they are so chic and definitely one of my favourite trends since last year. Also, just to let you know a bit in advance, I am planning to switch over to self hosting soon so I can accept sponsors and things like that as I have been getting a few requests! I’m excited about it and can’t wait! I will let you know when that’s planned!

Mint Green

I got the chance to collaborate with the online store Zalando, in which I got to choose a few items to style for my blog. One of those that I picked was this classic Levi’s Denim Trucker Jacket which I adore! The funny thing was, I didn’t actually own a regular blue Levi’s denim jacket, I have a patchwork one, but not one like this, so now I am thankful I can add this to my closet!

I paired the Levi’s denim jacket with mint green and double denim. I wasn’t so sure on mint green at first because I thought it might be too pale for me, but as it turns out I really like the colour. I also thought I would make this look a little different in pairing the denim jacket with a denim shirt. I’ve not worn double denim in this combination before. I think the yellow clutch makes the outfit pop too! What do you think?

I’m wearing a Levi’s denim jacket, a MiH denim shirt, Miss Selfridge mint leggings, my Kurt Geiger Eleanor nude heels and my Marc by Marc Jacobs Dandelion Karlie.

Also, Zalando actually have their own range of Zalando shoes as well as stocking loads of different premium brands like Diesel, Jeffrey Campbell, Ash, 7 For All Mankind and more! I will be showing you another piece that I got from Zalando next month! I’m excited about the next one. I just need some warmer weather!

Some New Clothes Purchases

Over the past couple of months, I have acquired some new purchases, so I thought I would share them with you all in one big post. A couple of items you have already seen, like the denim shirt, grey denim leggings and the studded ombre jumper/sweater, but the rest I haven’t yet shared with you.

So from left to right in the top image is a pink jumper/sweater I got in the sale from Topshop, a nude shirt with neon pink piping from the sale in Miss Selfridge, orange Earnest Sewn jeans which I got given to review, a yellow Zara blazer I purchased in London last month, mint leggings from Miss Selfridge, Topshop denim and crochet shorts and some lilac leggings from Miss Selfridge.

This is just a close up photo so you can see the details and fabrics a little better than the far away image at the top. Plus, I love to see such bright colours laid out next to each other as it’s so pretty to look at!

The sequin pair of denim shorts above are from Topshop and I love them! They are the pair I fell in love with from the press day last year (which you can see here) so I definitely needed them as a part of my closet when they became available. I haven’t had chance to wear them yet, but I can’t wait to!

Above are a pair of Aztec leggings from Miss Selfridge which I also fell in love with! I think they are so much fun! Also a black PU Leather sleeveless jacket from Topshop and a glitter feather necklace from the store too, which was in the sale for £1.50! I definitely couldn’t not buy it!

So these are all of my new purchases, some are sale items and others aren’t, but since I mainly shop at high street stores, nothing is overly expensive at all, which is perfect for me! Have you bought anything new lately? What do you like the most and can’t wait to see in one of my outfit posts?

Coach & Nicholas Kirkwood – Autumn/Winter 2012 Press Day

Finally here are the photos from the new Coach Autumn/Winter 2012 Press Day and the Nicholas Kirkwood Autumn/Winter 2012 Press Day. I saw both of these collections on different days during my London trips last month and I loved them!

I’ve never owned anything from Coach, but I have always loved the fact that they are not afraid to use bright colours and make their accessories fun! I also adore Nicholas Kirkwood, the shoes are generally always amazing and unique, but again I haven’t owned anything from them. I have included the writing about the collections under the sets of photos for each brand within this post. So what do you think of the new Autumn/Winter 2012 collections from Coach and Nicholas Kirkwood?

The Tan Leather Jacket

I wore this outfit on Friday when I went to the cinema to watch The Lucky One, starring Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling. I have been excited for this movie to come out for ages because it’s a beautiful story. I think the movie was really good, not my favourite, I prefer Dear John from Nicholas Sparks to The Lucky One, but it was really romantic and lovely! Although, I feel like no good movies came out for ages and now they all seem to be popping up at once!

I was wearing my Current/Elliott skinny jeans, my new Zara tan PU Leather jacket, an ASOS cream top, my Topshop Leopard scarf and my River Island Moccasins and Bag.

I bought this tan leather style jacket a few weeks ago when I was attending a mini fashion show in Bristol (I still need to post those photos). I think it’s so pretty! I usually stick to black for these types of jackets, but I think tan is a refreshing change. I decided to keep a really simple and casual outfit here as usually I like to wear a lot of colour or prints, but the days where I keep things simple, sometimes I love them just as much, if not more! Did you all have a nice weekend? Have you watched The Lucky One yet?

Some Quick Snaps From Somerset House In London

Since the London trips are pretty much planned down to the last minute, I don’t really have any time to take photos of anything else other than the collections. It literally involves going from the train, into a taxi, to the location, into a taxi, to another location and so on until I get in a taxi and go to Paddington Station to get back on the train to come home.

However, when I was at Somerset House, the location was so beautiful I had to snap a few quick photos on my way out. Somerset House is actually the location where they hold most of the London Fashion Week shows, so I was very excited to visit it and check it out. It’s a beautiful place and I got to see Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the London Eye again while travelling in a taxi!

I was wearing my Diesel Jeggings, my Topshop white jumper/sweater and bag, my Zara coat, my River Island pastel scarf and my Sam Edelman Petty booties.

Luckily, while I was inside Somerset House seeing the new AW12 styles, it was pouring down with rain, but when it was time to leave, the sun came out and it dried up. It’s just a shame the second time around that I was in London, I wasn’t as lucky and did get soaked. Anyway, have any of you been to Somerset House before? And I hope you are enjoying my AW12 posts!

Dodo Jewellery Autumn/Winter 2012 Press Day

Here is the post that I have been talking about for a little while. It’s the new Dodo Jewellery Autumn/Winter 2012 collection which I saw in London a couple of weeks ago during the press day events. I hadn’t ever heard of Dodo before, but when I walked into the room I instantly fell in love with it! Not only are the pieces animal inspired and adorable (as you can see) they are even for a good cause! Dodo have been working with the WWF (World Wildlife Foundation) in Italy since the very beginning. They have been donating money to the organisation since 1995 and have already donated over 1.5 million euros which I think is incredible! In celebration of this, the Tiger charm has been created out of yellow sapphire and black diamond and it will be launching later in the year. I believe it’s on the orange stand below.

I love the fact that they named the brand Dodo based on the charming, adorable and comical qualities that the Dodo had. It really fitted in with the brands fragility and fun concept. It’s also a reflection of how much nature needs to be loved and protected, which is something they have always felt strongly about. It is a shame that the Dodo actually became extinct because of humans and those of you who know me will know that I adore animals and love all of them to bits, so this is why I am so fond of this brand. They actually do something and give back to a charity that is really important. I really did fall in love with so many of the pieces, especially the little animal charms and the long pointy, almost tiger tooth looking, charms.

The room was filled with fun as well! They had alphabet cookies to represent their alphabet charms and they even had Stefano, from Italian Fine Tailoring company Bottega Conticelli, there to make little gifts for us. He made me a LOVE wallet with my initials dangling from the corner (which you can see below) and I love it so much! It’s adorable! It’s really well made too.

Also, Dodo is actually the sister company of Italian Jewellery House Pomallato and they just launched their flagship store last year on Sloane Square in London and have a concession in Selfridges, so they are quite hard to come by, but that definitely makes them more special. Unfortunately the high price tag that comes with Dodo is not a good thing for me, but for those of you who do have a little more money to spend, you should definitely check out Dodo, they have such unique pieces that are so delicate and pretty! What do you think of the brand?
