today i'm wearing...




Topshop shirt /
Dorothy Perkins jeans /
Topshop shoes /
Topshop bag /
H&M bracelet /

Super freezing today: I have to admit a jumper and coat were quickly added to this ensemble. I guess it was about time winter hit England, but still, it's quite annoying when you have to wear several more layers than you would like.

today i bought...




Yesterday I found the perfect cure for a dreary January Monday: a little bit of post-work shopping. These lovely tie-dye Zara jeans have been on my wish list ever since I featured them as 20th December's "today I want". Despite the freezing temperatures I'm feeling a love of Isabel Marant S/S'12 lately, especially after seeing the latest StyleBy cover, and these jeans are the perfect way to dip a toe into the tie-dye trend.

Something else I've lusted after for a while is this beautiful Balenciaga perfume, L'Essence. I finally gave in when I stumbled across the gift set of 50ml with body lotion for £38 from Debenhams: not bad considering 50ml on its own was £59. It also smells incredible: very sophisticated and Parisian. I do love a beautifully-scented bargain.

I wouldn't ordinarily wear these boots with these jeans, but I went shopping after work and I need comfortable shoes when I'm shopping. I sort of wish I had abandoned practicality, but then again what I bought was worth it. Will show you tomorrow...

today i'd save on... stella mccartney vs zara


On right: Zara leather shopper, £89.99 /

There are a handful of classic, timeless designer bags which are permanently on my 'if money were no object' wish list: Chanel 2.55, Alexander Wang Rocco, Céline Luggage and of course Stella McCartney Falabella (to name but a few). The Falabella's timeless combination of unstructured tote shape with chain edging calls out to me every time I see one: it's understated yet undeniably eye-catching and perfect for everyday wear. Sadly it's on that list for a reason, and I won't be shelling out for the real thing any time soon. Luckily though, Zara has come up with the perfect alternative: a beautifully chic taupe tote edged in black leather piping. Of course it's not quite the same as the Falabella, but it definitely captures the same understated aesthetic. In actual fact it even has two improvements on its McCartney counterpart: the price, of course, and also the fact that it's real leather (sorry Stella, but I'll go for real over faux any day). All in all it's the perfect addition to your everyday bag arsenal, and one I'll be hard-pressed to resist.

The other day I was praising these shoes for how comfortable they are, but even they really started to hurt after standing around playing snooker for two hours. But then again I did win, so as they say, no pain, no gain...

today i'm wearing...




Zara jumper /
Topshop trousers /
Topshop bag /

It definitely takes courage to wear something as bright as this fluorescent jumper, but I do rather like it. Plus if you're going somewhere where you need to stand out from the crowd, it'll do the job nicely. If you're a fan you might like to know it's on sale in Zara stores at the moment, reduced to £9.99 (though sold out online).

today i want... asos silver rings


A little while ago I featured my little sister's outfit on the blog and mentioned how much I loved her gold ASOS rings. Sadly they had sold out, but today I noticed that ASOS now sells them in silver. What I love about these is that they are so simple and minimalist, yet worn together on consecutive fingers they look utterly elegant. They're a little bit bold, a little bit eye-catching, but at the same time ever so understated: all in all the perfect everyday jewellery.

I am so loving these leopard print jeans right now. They give a new lease of life to the most basic of tops and jumpers. Actually I've just ordered some more printed jeans, so watch this space...

Some more of my lovely birthday presents. Plus the last picture is my brand new Muji coffee table. I wouldn't recommend buying anything from Muji online, since they delivered the wrong item and then ignored my emails for a week... But now that the right table is finally here, I am completely obsessed with it.

today i'm inspired by... topshop boutique s/s'12

If there's one thing I can count on in times of uncertainty, it's that my love for Topshop Boutique will never fade (nor my love for Clémence Poésy, incidentally). I know that if I am ever craving a new piece of clothing which will inspire unending fashion lust while at the same time being a perennially reliable companion in my wardrobe, Topshop Boutique is the place to look. It's the first section I head to if I'm ever in the Oxford Circus store, just to sift through the beautiful rails of timelessly chic clothes. In fact, one of the first items of clothing I ever fell in love with was Topshop Boutique: a short-sleeved navy dress with structured skirt. I remember it well and, crucially, I know that if I'd been able to afford it then, I would still be wearing it now. Hopefully this shoot for the line's S/S'12 collection will show you why I am such an ardent fan. I just love the casual, carefree look of these shots: some not even really showing off much of the clothes themselves, but rather painting a picture of the way that they will make you feel. And on a cold grey January night, a little bit of fashion escapism is just what the doctor ordered.
