Leather Love

Why is it that the thought of 'pleather' is reminiscent of cheap leather that is not worthy in the closet?
Recently I was drawn into the idea of 'vegan leather' after reading a Free People catalogue online. Suddenly I felt as though pleater and vegan leather were dissimilar. Of course I was wrong, but I was drawn into the idea that I was doing the right thing by purchasing this beautiful skirt that appeared to be leather with a PETA attitude behind it all.

The end result? My bank account is better for it, but I will never be able to replace the feel of soft leather that generally only comes with a big investment. Owning both seems to pay off in the end and I can still afford lunch. Win win.

The transition

There is something beautiful about the transition from Summer to Autumn. Looking forward to embracing my Autumn wardrobe before heading to Europe in late June (to remind myself just how much I took Summer for granted). 
Also, hot chocolates and warm baths make the cold miserable days bearable.

The two essential items I need:

Alexander Wang Diego bag... Perfect all year round no doubt!

A great coat that will keep me warm

Leggy brunette

Ever since I was 15 I have always had an obsession with Freja Beha Erichsen. The danish beauty has the most unmissable cheek bones & I have cut in bangs twice because they just look so damn good on her!

Waiting for a lifetime...

After one month, my lovely package arrived from the US with my three Deborah Lippman Nail colours & two pretty NARS Velvet Lip Matte pencils in Dolce Vita (orange for summer) & Damned (a beautiful winey colour) for night time! 

Here they are in all their glory. Including presents, 5 new nail colours in under two weeks... 
Time to slow down I think! x

Marc Jacobs

I love this Marc Jacobs Daisy ad, reminds me of the summertime

The most stylish woman around...

English fashion designer, former model & actress Georgina Chapman, the co-founder of couture brand Marchesa is by far one of the most stylish & beautiful people around.
Here are a few photos to illustrate why she is amazing...
