#OOTD - Blacks & Greys
the “jasmine tailored coat w/ PU collar - c/o Boohoo.com // grey boyfriend tee - Primark // high waisted leggings - ZARA // black studded slippers - Primark // bag - belongs to mother, from Spain // beanie hat - Primark
Casual and comfortable outfit for a day out with my hot mama and my little sister; filled with Starbucks, sushi and shopping! the three S’s every girl needs, haha ;-)
And some of you may have noticed that I’m wearing the biker jacket I’ve been coveting! Which Boohoo.com kindly gave to me, thank you so much guys; I’m literally in love with it. The jacket is lightweight and keeps me reasonably warm without sweating a lot, which is a big pet peeve for me. It’s also so well made! Definitely worth the £45!
I teamed the jacket with some neutral, staple pieces and my beloved beanie to compliment my anti-socialness, LOOL….. kidding.
P.S: Massive congratulations Boohoo.com for winning “Best Online Retailer” at Lorraine’s High Street Fashion Awards for the 2nd time in a row!! You guys deserve it!
Hey beautiful people!….
By now all my fellow UK Kardashian fans must have noticed this accessory worn by all the Kardashian sisters in “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami”
At first I thought it was a plain gold bar necklace but after a little research I found out that it’s actually an nameplate necklace that has not only been worn by the Kardashian sisters but other A-Listers such as Jessica Alba and Beyonce. Designed by Jennifer Meyer and costing $1100 (£720).
Now for those of us who have got £700 to spend on this particular accessory, theurbansmith.com offers a wide range of personalised necklaces and bracelets with prices starting at £45! and all real gold, total steal! Below are some of their pieces…..
Few of their items remind me of the Marc Jacobs padlocks I’ve seen floating around Tumblr and Instagram. After browsing their site, I think I might have to persuade the mama bear for a cheeky little purchase ;-)
What do you think of these nameplate necklaces, too plain or right up your lane? (dear God, I’m sorry for the cheese there. couldn’t resist.)
*picks up jaw from the floor*
I am in LOVE with every single one of these beautiful dresses, from ASOS’s newest brand; Needle & Thread.
“Based in both London and Delhi, Needle & Thread is a new label that expresses itself through beautiful hand-embellished designs. Under the creative direction of Hannah Coffin,Needle & Thread present a fun and eclectic S/S’13 collection that lists Aztec patterns and Mexican art as inspiration. Created with a beach to bar feel, these standout pieces are embellished by hand in India and are destined to take pride of place in your wardrobe.”
I’m a massive fan of designers such as Elie Saab and Jenny Packham whom thrive on embellishments and sparkle in most of their collections, so it’s no surprise that I am madly in love with these gorgeous designs from Needle & Thread. Whilst some dresses have a few Art Deco/Gatsby elements to it, I definitely agree with the statement above on the collection having a “beach bar feel” to it. I could so imagine Serena Van Der Woodsen in one of these items in Santourini! Haha! ;-)
I also love how the dresses are embellished by hand in India (my homeland! LOL). And don’t get me wrong, I love the Mexican inspiration and the aztec prints - very on trend! But I’m hoping the next collections will have more of a Asian influence…
With that being said, I can’t wait to see more of Needle & Thread!

#PROM2013 - Pinks & Peaches
Pinks, Corals, Peaches….. the perfect summer colour and the perfect colour scheme to go by for Prom.
Nude shoes are an ultimate classic, so splurging on these for prom can be easily explained as an investment ;-)
Regarding jewellery you can go two ways; gold! still roughly staying within the colour palette or mix it up! I love harsh, contrasting colours on pastels, gives the whole look a modern twist!
I hope this second installment to my Prom series has helped! and please feel free to ask me any questions you may have.
