today i love... whistles limited edition


I'm a big fan of high end high street brand Whistles. While most pieces are a little out of my price range, I wait longingly for the sales because I just love the simple, classic aesthetic of the clothes. Case in point: their exceptionally covetable new Limited Edition line (click here to shop it all). It's about 50% leather, so naturally I was immediately won over. There are also soft scallop-edged tops, slinky pencil skirts, fur-trimmed coats, patterned blouses and matching trousers. Naturally it's all on the expensive side, but I'll be lusting hopelessly after it anyway (and holding out for the Christmas sales).

today i want... zara zebra tee



Remember this post, where I was hopelessly lusting after IRO's zebra print tee and beseeching high street stores to produce a cheaper version? Well... it looks as though Zara may just have read my mind. Chanced upon this tee while browsing their online store today, and I'm not sure it could be much closer to what I was after. Zebra print? Check. Affordable? Check. On its way to me? Check.

All white in itself could look bland, but when accented with black I absolutely love it. Simple but striking, I like to think.

today i want... zara studded loafers


Picture / Stockholm-streetstyle.com

Tried on these loafers in Zara today, and I can't quite make up my mind whether or not to get them. I've had my eye on them for a little while, but I'm worried they may be just a little bit "punk", an adjective I'd like to avoid at all costs. Paired with bare legs, simple leather shorts and a knit, I think they'd look just perfect, but I'm worried they could look just too masculine with other combinations. They're also not super cheap, especially as I don't wear flat shoes all that often. What do you think... bite the bullet or wait for the sales?

today i bought...


Topshop Riot heels /

Ordinarily I'm not a big fan of buying the same thing in more than one colour. It seems a little unimaginative to me, and conjures up the image of a sickeningly matchy-matchy wardrobe with identical rows of court shoes and the same jeans in all colours of the rainbow. Not very individual, in other words. Having said that, when I saw that my beloved nude Topshop heels had been reduced from £80 to a mere £25, I just couldn't resist getting them in black, too. The nude versions are among my favourite heels at the moment: they're a classic, timeless style which look way above their pay grade and go with everything. They're high, but because your feet are very strapped in, they're easy to walk in. So I'm sure the black pair will prove just as versatile, with the added bonus that I can wear them in winter with tights. If you haven't already snapped them up, I urge you to do so.

today i want... louise gray for topshop lipsticks



I'll be honest: Louise Gray is not one of my favourite designers. As I'm sure you can tell from my outfit posts, I'm not really into maximalism. Loud colours, smiley faces, glitter: not my thing. I do, however, like just a little pop of colour to add a certain something to a look. That's where these fabulous lipsticks come in. While I'll be avoiding the bulk of Gray's Topshop collection, I think it was an inspired move by the high street brand to invite her to collaborate on make-up, too. They probably realise that her £100+ super-extrovert capsule clothing line won't appeal to the masses, so they've given the rest of us the chance at a little slice of the action in a much more wearable way. Now I just have to decide which of these colours to go for. I'll be popping into Topshop Oxford Circus tomorrow to try them out for real (make-up colours can be a little hard to judge online) and I don't doubt that one of them will be coming home with me.

If in doubt, one of my failsafe outfit formulae is to go for all black and add some standout accessories: leopard heels and visor-esque shades should do the trick.

today i want... whistles leather jackets



If there's one item of clothing I'm always on the lookout for, it's the perfect leather jacket. As hard to define as it is elusive, the perfect leather jacket is of course different for everyone - cropped, studded, collared or collarless, with zips or without - and nigh on impossible to pin down. For me, it looks pretty much like this Burberry Prorsum beauty, but that's just a little out of my price range. Luckily it seems that the people at Whistles are sympathetic to my plight, because their current range covers pretty much any definition of the perfect leather jacket; from the quilted Marlon through to the collarless Molly, there's something for everyone. Now my only problem is which one to choose...

today i love... john lewis wooden letters



Little bit obsessed with interior design lately (can't stop pinning images to my Pinterest 'Interiors' board and I love IKEA just a little bit too much). Anyway, wanted to share my latest find: these lovely little wooden letters from John Lewis. Normally I'd avoid anything with 'posh' in the title like the plague, but I make an exception for these. Hung them alongside my framed Hedwig's feather (yes, I'm a Harry Potter nerd) and an old CĂ©line campaign shot which pretty much epitomises how I'd like to dress every day.

Absolutely boiling today. Not entirely sure a leather skirt was the best choice of attire, but I've never been very good at weather-appropriate dressing...

today i'm inspired by... zara a/w'12





Videos / Youtube.com

Since Zara's A/W'12 campaign videos landed online a couple of weeks ago, there's been a lot of buzz surrounding the shots of beautiful Freja Beha Erichsen looking the epitome of Left Bank chic. But I also really rather like the TRF campaign starring Cara Delevingne (perhaps the most in-demand model of the moment?) In fact I can't decide which one I prefer. Most of all I want Cara's studded boots and Freja's leather skirt. I suppose that's what they call good advertising.

today i love... dogeared







Ever since I got my Dogeared Karma necklace I've been wearing it non-stop; I love having a simple piece of everyday jewellery which goes with everything and anything. Recently I noticed a few new additions to the range of Dogeared necklaces stocked by ASOS, and now I'm very tempted to add to my collection. I love them because they're each very simple but still eye-catching, plus the silver and gold-dipped finishes mean they won't fade to bronze like cheap necklaces do. I'm torn between the moon and the skull... Which is your favourite?
