…When you become more and more in love with Mansur Gavriel.
The duo; Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel first had my attention with their bucket bags; but as of late I am obsessed with backpacks; so when I saw these, I became a true Mansur Gavriel fan. To be honest, even if I wasn’t going through a backpack phase- I’d find it hard not to be drawn to these beauties. Especially, since I love love love orange and this dusty powder pink is trending right now. Granted, there are an array of colours to select from, however the above pair couldn’t be more perfect!
The backpacks are so simply in style yet make such an impact as a fashion item. As simple as Mansur Gavriel’s designs are known to be, their inspirations from “the contrast of warm, natural textures and the clear, clean intensity of pop colors” are strongly and consistently represented; making each “simple” piece far from Plain Jane but more of a statement piece contender. Designed in New York with great attention to detail and made in Italy with the finest materials, Mansur Gavriel are really starting to stamp their mark – and I can not get enough!
Backpack envy much?!
…Love Love Love!
So, I decided after starting with a classic pair of Louboutins, then to a stand-out, pop colour pair of Balenciagas; my next pair of designer shoes are going to be Valentino. I mean what Fashionistas’ wardrobe is complete without a pair of Valentino heels.
Naturally, I wanted a pair of the Rocketed 100 pumps or the So Noir 100 pumps (colour undecided), however after browsing the shelves I fell in love with these bad boys; The Rockee Leather Pump. Quite obviously its the fringing that caught my eyes. But it was also the discrete, yet statement-making clear plastic strap, that drew me in even further. Not to mention the close-attention to detail; with the tiny gold (classic Valentino) studs to which neatly line both the top and underside of the buckle; that I love- this definitely completes the luxury Italian Leather shoe!
In classic black, I wonder if these gorgeous Valentino pumps will even go on sale or just have me breaking the bank! Its all just a waiting game now; will they or won’t they? #SummerSale
When it’s June and still cold…
…If I’m honest, I don’t really know what else to say. Its ridiculous yet we have to deal with it, so I won’t rant on and on about “The Great British Weather”. To brighten up my cold and miserable grey days, I quite literally appear brighter. In a Zara favourite and classic Kenzo (jumper),this is my current situation; until further notice from the weathuer man. I love my orange coat, I do, and even though it’s most definitely a winter coat; it’s perfect for these winter-like, so called “summer” months! #OrangeIsTheNewBlack.
