5 things I want right now!

1/ The AA Butterfly chair is one of my favourite pieces of design after the Paulistano chair. It has such an iconic design legacy and still looks amazingly modern considering it was designed in 1938. 2/Following my post on the Hush beachwear collection, I ordered the Kaftan dress in black to take to France with me next week. I already have this lovely glitter clutch and this military jacket. 3/During summer time, I’m usually more of a Birkenstock kind of girls, but for the sake of showing you different alternatives, I think these leather slides from ATP Atelier are really gorgeous (a pair of K Jacques St Tropez would be great too!). 4/Love this new black rattan clutch from Clare Vivier and of course, if you didn’t buy the La Tropezienne tote bag when we had it in the BODIE and FOU Collection, you should really order one from her site. 5/and I love this Dr Jackson’s 04 coconut melt which I bought a couple of weeks ago. It smells wonderful. I was also recommended this Fig + Arrow facial care kit for skins …

5 things I want right now!

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 …

The perfect little white summer dress

A while ago I posted a photo of me on Instagram, green smoothie in hand, wearing a lovely white cotton dress and many of you asked me where it came from. It was from Zara but I had bought it 3 or 4 years ago and I wore it to death. The shoulders are now so ripped off that they are beyond repairs but I thought this little number from Urban Outfitters was a great alternative. I also very much love this Sessún Delphina embroidered dress. Which one do you prefer?
