Marks & Spencer AW11 accessories collection

26 Sep

Last week, I was invited to a fabulous Mad Hatter’s Tea Party hosted by M&S to showcase their seriously covetable accessories collection. I’ve been a long time fan of M&S accessories, one of my favourite oversize clutches is from the Limited Collection. Held at the beautiful Kettner’s champagne bar, the wood panelled walls and high ceilings gave the venue an old school, sophisticated gentlemen’s club  feel which was the perfect setting for showing off the decadent collections from Marks & Spencer.
The Boy Meets Girl Collection – As the name suggests, slightly androgynous. Think lace up boots, the softest knits, buckles and tassled loafers.

The Global Traveller Collection – A riot of shiny sequins, bright colours glinting glitter and gorgeous textures. The cutaway ankle boots are on my lust list.

The Wilderness Collection – Earthy colours combined with animal prints, tactile knits and faux fur for a luxe, bohemian collection. 

The Nordic Narnia Collection – Think twinkling, glittering trinkets in icy cool shades of silver, ice blues and pretty pinks with the softest, cosiest knits and slippers.


Shoe daydreams at Kurt Geiger

10 Mar

There’s nothing like a lazy day at home doing your nails, eating chocolate and gazing upon beauteous, wonderful shoes. Kurt Geiger is my favourite shoe store by far, I literally can’t leave without a big shoe bag swinging from my hand. The choice is a little overwhelming though and it just seems wrong to leave with just one pair, they will get lonely, no? I love the dark blacks and golds, they have a real timeless, vintage glamour. But….vibrant, dazzling attention-grabbing heels are just a little bit irresistible aren’t they?? What’s tickling your fancy this season, classic black or bold colours? 

Medwinds press day in Barcelona

6 Mar

You may remember my post about Medwinds a few weeks ago, they’re a brand new company who have just launched their online fashion store and they kindly invited a few London bloggers over to sunny Barcelona to visit the Medwinds pop-up showroom. It was great to see everything up close. The collection is small but perfectly formed, the pieces are mainly wardrobe staples with beautiful cuts and gorgeous, stroke-able fabrics. It’s very Mediterranean – easy, comfortable and wearable. The accessories really stood out though, the leather was super soft. There were lots of different types of heels, all of them felt really comfortable whether they were the cute lace ups or platform strappy sandals. The bags were the highlight, huge and made out of buttersoft leather with gorgeous metallic accents. 

I had such a lovely time, huge thanks to the Medwinds team. I can’t wait to see what’s next and having spoken to the designer the next couple of collections sound really exciting.
