Golden In Paris

Outfits

Posted on

Obviously I have to start with this metallic jacket. I bought it roughly about 7-8 years ago, not to sure. Anyway, I remember feeling very bold buying this piece as is was quite out there for me at the time, or so it seemed being a metallic gold semi bomber like jacket. My mum always the encourager of me buying things a little different told me that I should go for it and so I did.  

 

A week or so later we found ourselves back in Topshop doing our weekly rounds of checking all the new in's and I remember overhearing these ladies laughing at the metallic jacket that was hanging there so innocently ;) making a comment like "who would wear that"! And I felt that all that seemed to imply, was that they couldn't see past the fact it was gold and hearing and witnessing that limited outlook only seemed to make me feel better in my decision of buying this AWESOME jacket! Haha, all these years later and I finally got the chance to get that off my chest! 

 

Well, time sure does fly and i'm once again wearing it in Paris for fashion week, along with another fun piece that I haven't worn in while, my fringed vest. I'm definitely feeling like anything suede or fringed is going to be the underdog this Spring/Summer but whether i'm right in that statement or not, i'm sure as hell going to be investing in more of it! 

 

Take care lovelies,

PFW Day Two: Outfit Two

Outfits

Posted on

Hello lovelies,

Here is the outfit I wore on my second day when I was in Paris for fashion week. Just before I went I treated myself to a couple of new things from Topshop. Firstly I bought this check print shirt from their Unique range, as I had been craving it for so long and I also came across this pretty amazing military green trench coat from Topshop's Boutique range. I love trench coats, they are so classic and so chic and plus I am super into all green coats/jackets right now, so it had to be done. 

I loved how these two pieces looked styled together and with that I found myself a starting point. And yes before anyone says, I did have multiple layers on underneath these thin pieces, even including a turtleneck but yes I was still frozen to the core, thank god for my awesome boyfriend coming to my rescue and bringing me an extra coat. I wore my navy Carven trousers with a classic brown belt, I just love these trousers so much, a favourite of mine for sure and I just felt they deserved to be worn at PFW, don't you agree? I wore them with my Jil Sander metallic brogues, another wardrobe fave of mine, I love how they looked against the rich navy blue and military green, whilst also giving of that 1920's androgynous appeal that I adore oh so much, it just never seems to dates and always looks chic. I added in my Missoni scarf for subtle play on prints and wore my Illesteva Sunglasses for a small touch of some good old, mad professor sexiness :D 

I really enjoyed my second day there, probably because it was the only full day I had in Paris which made it feel a lot more relaxed and enjoyable. There were other reasons also but for now I'll remain quite on that one… Yes i'm one of those people! Once again Thank you Stedentrips for making Paris fashion week possisible! 

Anyway hope you like this look. Thank you for always leaving me such lovely comments, I always look forward to reading them,

Navy

Outfits

Posted on

Hi lovelies, 

 

This is something I wore not so long ago, it was just to have some coffee with the boyfriend but I really loved wearing this outfit as navy is one of my favourite colours to wear and especially so when teamed with black.

 

These wide leg trousers by Carven are one of my favourite buys this year. I feel so confident when I am wearing them, I just can't get enough of their chic and timeless shape and the versatility that they have are proving to be such a joy to style. With styling them this time around I wanted to echo their classic appeal by styling them with this navy turtleneck by Splendid which also worked very well for creating a tone on tone look. For shoes I went with these Miu Miu heels, I contemplated going for an edgier pair in order to throw the primness of the look off balance but for some reason that felt more expected and instead went for the predictability of the Miu Miu's. 

 

I threw my mens cardigan over my shoulders for a nonchalant approach and a brown belt to break up and define where the top stops and the trousers begin. I kept everything else minimal as I felt that gave the look a subtle yet edgier undertone, feeling that thats what the look was needing. 

 

Well I think thats it y'all. Hope you like this look to. :D Thank you for taking the time to read and look at this post my dears.

Rolling Up My Sleeves

Outfits

Posted on

 

Hi lovelies,

 

It's Friday already! And here is a look for you all. 

 

I wanted to wear this gorgeous Vionnet top again and with it's gorgeous eye catching scarf print I couldn't resist mixing it up with another print this time around. So I teamed it with one of favourite pieces, this Elizabeth & James silk, striped shirt. It didn't look right with the sleeves down, for some reason it seemed to throw all the proportions off balance, so rolled them up, which actually gave the look a more effortless and casual feel. 

 

I then went with these Carven navy wide leg trousers, another wardrobe favourite of mine. Their length along with their shape is just soooo chic in my opinion and I really liked the way they picked up the blue in my shirt. For my shoes I went with these very old Pretty ballerina's that I came across the other day, their bronzed colour just seemed to work really well and I liked how they gave a sense of unexpectedness. I don't why but when I look at this outfit I think of an old fashioned bar man, like in the western films, hehe. I really enjoyed wearing this, it was one of those outfits that I felt very confident in, which was nice because it was around a time when I was struggling to get inspired. 

 

Finishing touches included this Totem Salvaged clutch, my double skull Mqueen ring and the boyfriend's watch, cheeky I know but what are boyfriends for if you can't steal from their wardrobe every now and again! 

 

Well I look forward to hearing what you think. Thank you to those who take the time to comment and I even thank the ones who just take the time to have a lil look. 

 

Take care and have an awesome friday,

Hi everyone, 

 

Here are todays "my Wish I was wearing" outfit's. I have put two together this time using these very beautiful and chic striped trousers from Carven. It's got to that time of the year where you really have to think when you're shopping about how you can wear it now and for how you can wear later, when it starts to become chillier. And yes Those Nicholas Kirkwood's are back, I could' t resist the print play they created. 

 

I really hope you like these looks my lovelies. Thanks and Take care, Daniella xox
