5 Things You Want Right Now!

5 things I want right now!

With a beaming smile on my face, I’m kicking off today’s 5 Things I want right now! with my first denim jumpsuit of the 2016. I could go on and on about jumpsuits, it is such a versatile piece of clothing and one that I really really love. The good news is that jumpsuits are not going anywhere and if you haven’t given it a go yet, now is the time!

15 ISABEL MARANT MUST-HAVES IN THE SALE

15 Isabel Marant Must-haves in the Sale

As you know, I’m a huge fan of Isabel Marant‘s style (I love her workplace too!). I have pieces I bought at full price and others I found on websites that sell pre-owned luxury fashion like Vestiaire Collective, Vide-Dressing and sometimes Ebay. The key things to bear in mind when buying an Isabel Marant must-have or for any pieces from your favourite Designer, are: Buy it because it fits your style and personality (I don’t like everything she does or neither does everything suits my body shape, so choose wisely. Work out the cost-per-wear (Total cost of the item/ estimated number of days you’ll wear it = the cost per wear). I live in my wedged sneakers in Winter time and in my Dickers boots in Summer time so the cpw is pretty low compared to the pair of high-heels I would wear less. Try the outfit in shop first to work out your size so once the Sale is on, you know exactly what outfit and size to get. Be patient and enjoy the process. Personally I draw more satisfaction from adding a key piece …

This is my favourite look at the moment. It’s easy going, versatile and you can change/update the whole outfit by changing your clutch, replace the top by a basic v-neck t-shirt in charcoal, light grey or white and wear a parka or this nice grey coat. 1/This leather jacket which is made of soft panelled lambs leather (a must-have!) 2/ These boyfriend jeans by Current Elliot. I’m also loving this pair from Hush and this one from Monki 3/ This leopard clutch by Clare Vivier which I should have got ages ago 4/A pair of Stan Smith which has been pretty much the only pair I wore when I was in Paris early this week 5/ This lovely top by Isabel Marant (once I get my acts together, I will list a few things from Marant which are actually too big for me) SHOP THE POST:

We had a few drinks last night at La Co(o)rniche (mentioned here) which was really cool and then two minutes later, we got this! Massive rainfall but it was good fun because it wasn’t cold at all just very wet so everyone carried on drinking and eating while admiring the Bay of Arcachon. Slowly but surely, I’m mentally preparing myself to a cooler season hoping that the weather in Cap-Breton where we will be based for the next weeks will enable us to enjoy a bit more sunshine.

I went to various AW2015 press day yesterday including Urban Outfitters and Karen Millen and saw lots of really nice things including this beautiful leather skirt from Urban Outfitters. The Karen Millen collection drew its inspiration from the 70s and iconic women like Anjelica Huston, Jane Birkin and Farraw Fawcett….expect gorgeous, feminine cuts and Autumn colours to come but right now, let’s focus on Summer!!!! 1/The Fringe trend is still on next season so this grey fringe bag would be a great investment to wear throughout this Summer and next season plus I love the grey colour which is a nice change from the usual black or brown version we see everywhere. 2/ I’m not big on jewellery. I love simple, discreet things but I treated myself to this heart necklace for Mother’s Day and it has become one of my favourites (I’m wearing it here). Sadly, the silver one is now sold out but there is a few left in gold. 3/I think you know by now that I love jumpsuits. It’s versatile, practical, stylish and I’m a big fan of this Native Rose …
