I’m so happy that velvet is in abundance this year. From jackets to bags and  shoes..the crush on velvet is in full flow. I love the richness it brings to an outfit. It has always been a fave of mine. It can look extravagant and expensive.It’s beautiful in pretty much every colour too. Striking and luxurious comes to mind when I see velvet. I love the tops, the ballet pumps, heels and pants in this lushus texture. I can’t say I’m overly pleased at the fact it’s Autumn but if I get to indulge in these gorgeous things then I can’t complain too much…. well no just yet!! But wait till it’s freezing cold and raining everyday then you might here me moan pretty much constantly … ha ha

A dreamy show that was out of this world. The most beautiful silhouettes. All so pretty and perfect. There wasn’t a look I didn’t love. From start to finish everything was wow. Rich creamy creams, clean pretty plaits and dewy soft make up. The show oozed class and sophistication. Playful ruffles and tailoring gave the perfect balance to grown up dressing. A 80’s vibe ran through the show with a stunning version of the Ra Ra skirt. Over sized bows on dresses and jackets with shoulder pads. Those combined with plaits, peep toe trainers and duffle bags. I absolutely loved this collection.

TROPHY JACKET

Statement dressing. Special pieces that last forever. I’m doing it this year with this gorgeous trophy jacket. Out and about in London so thought I’d team it up with a pair of suede heels and torn up jeans.

These kind of jackets are great for day-to-night dressing. Smart or casual as I’ve done here. It’s a great staple piece. It’s a great time to be investing in this type of thing. Sales and massive reductions mean you can get your hands on some pretty amazing stuff but for a snippet of the price. I love the sales. And there are plenty of them this year. I find it easier online to shop them. I went in store in London yesterday and it was totally exhausting and I couldn’t find what I was looking for. There are pro’s and cons to both. The downside to online is not being able to try the things on before you buy… the dreaded waiting for the refund but it’s calm and relaxing and fun browsing the fashion pages. Then there’s the joy of trying things on there and then but with the drama of picking through the rails. I’ve had the best success this year online. Have you found anything nice yet? I’d definitely go for a trophy jacket,shoes or a handbag as a rule especially when I’ve been saving for something. Happy shopping guys. (I’ve listed a few of my favourite sales belw)

Striped sweater,suede sandals and shorts.. it must be a day in London. Do love a slouchy sweater especially over a pair of short shorts. Nude sandals always work well for summer. I’ve missed wearing this kind of look and now that the weathers changing it’s nice to be able to go for a stroll in such attire. It also helps when the surrounds are as beautiful as they are here. Dreamy cafe stops and browsing in shops. What a perfect way to spend the day.
Find out why I’ve been in London the weekend  tomorrow over on my social channels. There’s a really exciting project I’m doing this week. I’d love you to be part of too… so keep your eyes peeled. xx Dawn
