When putting together an outfit your bag can sometimes be left to the very end. But the last thing you want to do is grab the first one you see before running out the door and have that bag not work for your outfit.Here are some key tips I’ve learnt for choosing the right bag for your outfit, or should it be the right outfit for your bag?ClutchDion Lee Strapless Dress | The Daily Edited Box ClutchThe clutch is the perfect match for strapless or off the shoulder looks as it doesn’t
This dress was part of a mind struggle on Instagram stories (karenbritchick). I went to an event last night in the city (a perfume launch for Viktor and Rolf) and all I knew that I’d wear were the shoes but with what? I don’t go out that much. It was a toss up between a shocking pink trouser suit and this new-but-old-but new to me dress (found at Beacons Closet). The dress won. It’s ripped on the shoulders, across the back and in random sections, allowing large pieces of
Did yesterday’s post on 15 velvet bags tempt you? If not then maybe the above H&M dress will. Soon as I saw the price – correction, soon as I saw the dress I was in. Then I saw the price and a week later it was at my front door. It’s got all the things I look for: long sleeves, maxi length, loose cut. Then the frill shoulders? and that winter floral print?? Oh FFS! Let me make apologies now in advance for future posts in this dress (and/or Instagram). Tip: order
I am wearing a printed skirt as a dress with heels that remind me of the Caribbean which, given recent temps isn’t that much of a stretch. If you have a long skirt with a flexible waist just try it as a dress. It’s one of my fave ways to re-fresh old pieces or let’s be honest, when you can’t be asked to faff around in shops so just make do. Add a jacket if you don’t fancy having your arms out and to keep it more city vibe. Obviously this works with white
When I plan outfits I try on 20 different things to make sure what I put together is my absolute favorite. Somedays it comes together quickly and other days not so much. Anyone else have that problem I love listening to books (Cody and my Dad got me hooked on Audible) because I don’t have time to read as much as I used to. Beckam always wants this book because there’s four guys balancing on a Ferris Wheels on the cover and he thinks they are doing tricks lol. Every time it comes up
Found about three months ago at Beacons Closet, my eyes as usual almost popped out of their sockets: Hang on, it’s that dress I shot someone wearing last year in black!! Would have preferred to have it in black too but beggars can’t be choosers when it’s a consignment find. I could always dye it down the road? You could always get something like this H&M v-neck dress for a more forgiving cut and team a bandeau style bra under it in a contrast colour if you’re up

Can’t be asked to faff around with fancier dresses hence why I stick to simple long dresses like this one. It’s cut slim but is still loose enough to skim which is flipping mandatory in this heat wave (size up to feel looser). It’s not easy for me to find the perfect Jesus-like sandals (in my size) so the above pair impressed me enough. You can find links to them below and let me know if you get them. Being so basic, they’ve been my most used sandals so far and the

Joseph Altuzarra is one of those uncommon designers who consistently and instinctively knows what women want to wear, whether it’s shearling bomber jackets, celeb-favorite fringed hobo Ghianda bags, crinkled linen dresses, or racy laced knee-high boots. Personally, I like to attribute it to the stylish Chinese women he’s surrounded by - his mother, cousin Lily Kwang, and grandmother, who hails from Shanghai like mine. In addition to being superbly talented, Joseph is the most well-mannered boy.
