I never get to post many casual looks, so it's also nice to share with you a look that is more relaxed. Something that I would wear on a shopping day out or anytime when running around town.
I'm also quite excited because I managed to find this Zara bag on Ebay which I had been searching for a very long time. It ended up being quite a story that I will be sharing with you soon.
I was wearing: Top + Bag: Zara, Jeans + Scarf: Topshop, Ring: H&M, Sunglasses: Chanel.
You all know how much I have been obsessing with big statement jewellery. I have been searching for the perfect necklace it's been a while and when I say perfect in my head I'm picturing something quite big, possibly with some rhinestones, preferably in a amazing neon/ fluorescent colour and I think 'Virgin Mary of Fashion' has just answered to my prayers.
Just a couple of days ago, I came across this fantastic website called 'Bauble Bar' and I couldn't believe it, I have just found what I was so much looking for! There were 3 necklaces that really caught my eye, all of them absolutely unique and stunning. I have added a 'totally loving it!' on my favs. Check them out.
I almost had a heart attack with the "Potpourri Necklace'. Isn't it just exquisite? I really would love, love, love to brighten up one of my outfits with it.
The colourful rhinestones, like the 'Oceana' and the 'Phospho' necklaces, are everything I want to be wearing this Spring. Playful and chic, they are easy to wear with outfit, plus bright colours are so in fashion right now, this is real a must have in any wardrobe.

I'm sure all of you will also be in love with these pieces and a visit to their website is more than worth it. They also have fantastic selection of rings, have a look by clicking here.
I loved all the cool dip dye and pastel coloured hair I seen at LFW. The trend is strong and there were loads of girls with these hair styles, which was something that inspired me for this post. Enjoy!
London Fashion week has finished and I hadn't post a single picture of myself yet. So, this is what I wore on the last day of womenswear. This was the only day I went monochrome, wearing black head to toe with some great accessories to give this look the 'va va voom' it needed.
There were so many Japanese press around that I got carried away and decided to pose for this picture, in what I call the 'Fruits style' (with my feet inwards). I think is super kawaii, but my BF laughed at it, so I feel obliged to explain here too, that I have not got any problems with my feet.
This great close up picture of my knuckle duster ring, was taken by Ana, a fashion blogger that became a friend over fashion week. Her blog Random Fashion Tips is great, check it out.
I was wearing: Jacket + Harness: Topshop, Dress + Leggings: H&M, Shoes + Bag: Vivienne Westwood, Sunglasses: c/o Polaroid, Ring: Alexander McQueen, Gloves: Primark.
Talking about 'va va voom', there are some changes to the blog. I'm still working on it but I hope you all enjoy the new layout.
I was really quick at spotting these 2 ladies queuing for their passes at London Fashion Week, but can you guess who they are?
Supermodels Shalom Harlow and Amber Valletta, au naturel, with no make up whatsoever, weren't causing a stir.
Later in the same evening the duo is at the Stella McCartney party, with their make up done, the transformation for supermodel is complete.
Thanks to Touch Eclat, make up is definitely one of the girls best friends and secrets too!
Since the lookbook and pictures are officially out, I quickly made a selection of some of my favourite items. I must admit, I wasn't expecting much from Marni x H&M but I believe this could be one of the best collaborations ever. I am particularly drooling over the accessories, all of them really, but especially for neon necklace and bangles. I am really hoping I can get my hands on them!
And the campaign looks like this...
The collection will be released on March 8th. Can't wait!
I had a great day at LFW yesterday. I met a bunch of interesting people and made some new friends too. The weather was great, it was the perfect day to take some street style pictures, something that I haven't done for a while. It was also the perfect time to test my new camera, I'm so excited! This is really big news to me, and maybe the reason why I have stopped taking pictures, since my old camera was letting me down so much, I was getting very stressed with it. Anyways, I hope you all enjoy these shots as much much as I enjoyed meeting some lovely and very fashionable girls.
A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to an event held by Polaroid to promote their new range of sunglasses. This is also a commemorative range which celebrates the 75th anniversary of the brand.
A really cool, Polaroid Museum was on display with sunglasses from all different eras. From the 30's there were already some 3D sunglasses which amazed me, in the late 40's there were the quirky driving shades, glamour in the 50's was all about the cat eye and in the 70's you might find yourself in love with these fantastic and colourful Jackie O. styles, I bet the Benetton collaboration must have been something from the 80's for sure. What a fantastic opportunity to see all these curious designs.
Polaroid's amazing new heritage range is called 'Best under the Sun'. This range emulates the most iconic styles from each decade from the 30's until the 80's. As we are talking about iconic designs it's really difficult to chose just one. I love sunglasses and I had my eye in at least 5 different styles!
In the end, this is the pair I chose for myself. They are called 'Jive', a true 50's style which I've had my eye on for a while. It's also something different, which I wanted to try and a completely new style for my collection, but I am so glad I went for them, I have already worn them out and got loads of compliments. Yay!
Another 50's style is the 'Marilyn' which is Ferne's Cotton favourite. I can really picture her wearing those.
Donna, from the 80's, is pure disco, isn't it?
Other favourites of mine are the big 70's styles, I completely adored the ones on the right bottom corner, called 'Sophie' with graduated lenses and the big pink ones, pictured below, from the 60's are called 'Twist', they are so much fun.
May I also mention that for every pair they sell from their Best Under The Sun collection, they will make a donation to the international charity ‘Sightsavers’ to help prevent blindess in some of the world’s poorest countries.
