Fall Finds: Jackets & Coats

Topshop Leather Saddle Stitch Jacket. So now that Fall is pretty much here, well Autumn for us UK ladies, I am having a fun time looking around for my Fall Finds. I love browsing the shops online for new items that I can wear for the new season, it’s always something I have found enjoyable. I’m going to be doing a mini series of these posts which will include jackets and coats, bags and shoes, tops and bottoms, dresses and playsuits and accessories. I’m not sure which order they are going to be in yet, it depends what I see and love the most! This first post is on jackets and coats as I feel they are the most important when changing into cooler seasons, you can’t really go without them and they are the first thing that people see when they look at you. Leather and PU leather seems to be huge right now and I’m loving that! I really love the leather look trend, as you know I am besotted with my new Topshop PU leather jacket. Trench coats are also hot every time Fall and Winter comes around, you can’t be without one! I’m also liking the trend of wearing the leather or denim waistcoats/vests with layers, I think that’s a hot look! Which are your favourites? I especially love the Great Plains Putty Coat, the Current/Elliott Denim Sleeveless Biker Jacket… Well I just love them all and I would have a hard job resisting the suede jackets if they were faux suede, I would snap them up in an instant! Clothes are such a weakness for…

Platform City Central

Platform shoes are one of my favourite type of heels. They give you that extra height but with the comfort of being able to walk in them due to the platform. I can never really do any heels over 4 inches in steepness so having the extra height at the front really helps! Not to mention they look incredibly sexy! I piled together a few of the ones I am in love with at the moment. The Christian Louboutin RolandZip heels are incredible! I love the way he put the silver zipper up the heel for aesthetic purposes. I also really love the YSL Palais Fuschia platforms, those are so pretty! The colour is amazing! All of these shoes are available to buy on Net-A-Porter and Luisaviaroma. Which do you like the most?

LOOKBOOK.nu Inspirations

I honestly adore Look Book! It’s full of such amazing fashion sense and everyone’s style is so unique, I love looking through all of the pictures. A lot of them give me inspiration for my own outfits just like seeing people in the street does. I like seeing something pretty on someone and then imagining what I could pair it with. I think I am literally obsessed with clothes! I piled together some of my favourite fashion blogger looks from the site.

Looks I Love From Varela LaMar

I came across this brand Varela LaMar a little while ago and I wanted to share with you a few of my favourite pieces from the new collection. The designer Nixia Varela de LaMar spent a lot of her time in Panama City in Spain where she got most of her inspiration and tradition from. Her designs vary from gorgeous glittering gowns to clutches and other really stunning items. The reason I love Nixia’s clothes is because of how much attention she puts into her designs and the details are very pretty. I could see myself wearing some of these clothes and I can imagine them looking good for a day or evening outfit. The clothes are very girly and very sparkly which is definitely my style, I love it a lot! What do you think of the collection? You can find out more about Nixia and her Varela LaMar collection by clicking here and visiting her blog. I hope this collection makes it big!

Items On My Wishlist

I love putting these posts together of items that are currently on my wish list. I have a bad habit of going through websites every day like Net-A-Porter, Matches, Barney’s, Saks, Topshop, ASOS… The list is endless! I always end up seeing something that I love and then I rule out if I can get it or not, if I can’t then I decide if it’s worth saving for. So here are a few items on my wish list at this current moment! What items are you saving for or have bought recently? I adore those Miu Miu booties above, I think they are amazing! Unfortunately I think they will be out of stock before I am able to save for them. They are already low stock on Net-A-Porter! Sigh! I have had those Jeffrey Campbell wedges on my list for ages too but they don’t stock them here in the UK, it’s so sad! I do plan on getting the Topshop denim jacket though, that would look so cute over floral dresses!

Miu Miu Opens A New Boutique In Italy

One of my favroutie brands, which I currently don’t own anything from due to the price tag unfortunately, has just opened a brand new boutique in Porto Cervo, Italy. The new Porto Cervo based Miu Miu boutique also has a limited edition bag and a limited edition pair of shoes, completely exclusive to the shop! I adore the bag! I have never really been into bags but lately I am really loving them! Are you fashion bloggers a fan of Miu Miu too? I do definitely love the Miu Miu line much more than Prada itself, even though they are the same company I find Miu Miu has a more fashion forward feel to their clothes. You lucky Italians that live in Porto Cervo, go check out the new boutique! It looks beautiful! Also, please follow me on Bloglovin, I need to reach 100 followers so I can start my new contest! It’s an exciting one with a brand I love!

Looks I Love: Wildfox Fall 2010

The Wildfox Fall 2010 look book is so cute! It has this magical feel to it and I think the scenery and the photos are really beautiful! I had to share my favourite pictures from the look book itself with you. I’ve not tried Wildfox yet but I see it everywhere and I think the tops are adorable! I really love the floral printed leggings, the printed tees and the cat ear hats, how cute! Everything is so unique and edgy! I’m really starting to get into their denim now as well! Hopefully I’m able to pick up some Wildfox tees soon so I can post those! Enjoy the images!
