Slip into navy attire this weekend. At least before fancy dress!
Easily contrast with varying shades of blues- just keep it in the family.

Pumpkin Spiced Style

Pumpkin Spiced Style

 

I just love Autumn. The season of transition, change, harvest, cosiness and certain element of hunkering-down. It’s time for hot chocolate with friends and carving pumpkins. It’s time for fall colors, chunky knit scarves and it’s even ok to order  pumpkin-spiced latte.

I have been slowly but surely introducing my knits, long(er) coats and wooly black tights. I’m secretly loving the fact I can wear my capes again but of course very grateful it is not bitter cold outside just yet!

Thanks to Primark, we can all look like Autumnal models as we strut our stuff down the ordinary street.

Velvet Fancy

Be gone, skimpy silk slip dresses of summer! For the crisp beginnings of fall, the transitional look of eveningwear calls for something much more lush: velvet.

Velvet Fancy

 

In the words of Liana Satenstein ” Be gone, skimpy silk slip dresses of summer! For the crisp beginnings of fall, the transitional look of evening wear calls for something much more lush: velvet….” I couldn’t have put it better myself. How lovely you will blend in to your grandmothers lush red curtains in her drawing room.

Get snug in this MiuMiu fur-trimmed rust orange velvet bomber jacket. Have a ball to attend? Why not opt for this stunning aqua velvet wrap gown by Bloomingdales?

A blue velvet cropped blouse by House of Holland would be perfectly canvassed with a long tulle skirt I reckon for that perfect fake, plastic, hippy I-don’t-give-a-crap look (when the truth of the matter is, you really do). A Downton Abbey- themed, Haloween bash would be apt for this little burgundy velvet number above.

This cute lace-trim velvet cami should do the trick for a quiet weekend in with the other half. Its only a mere twenty off quid from the brilliant Asos. And, if you really cant detach yourself from it upon facing the public, pair it with a black wool polo underneath, leggings and good ole reliable Doc Martens. (If you’re too young to understand what they are, pick your favourite pair of ankle boots). Gucci’s grand finale will do nicely if you have a few three grand to fork out on a velvet and lace macrame!
Now, there you have it; plenty of velvet experience right from the Autumn 2016 runway brought to your laptop’s portal front door!

Burgundy Bliss

A retro student look.

 

300916 by rosemarykate featuring an enamel 
I came across this collage on polyvore just now and i thought it was just the prettiest selection of fashion mix and cute ladylike essentials.
Burgundy; THE current color en vogue for autumn. I love it. Its a transitional color, perfect for this time of year (as i type with my ox blood colored fingernails!)
I think its a stereotyped London student’s look. In a romantic sense of the word. Or the Oxfordshire PhD scholar as she unties her bike to the old ancient black railings of the studen union house: Loafers, leather satchel, flec framed spectacles and the list goes on.
Can you root out your burgundy business?
