This time last Saturday I was sipping pink champagne at the Mayfair Apartments with Net A Porter to view the latest NAP drops. Today I am in the country, sitting in my dressing gown and today I have house work duties. This sums up my lifestyle, I like to call it “part time millionaire” sometimes I get to live the high life but in reality I have to clean my house, work lots and save for those special NAP pieces.
I was so excited to view the SS16 collections, not only do I get to share this with you; it also means I get to pick out my wish list. I was basically there as your personal shopper and made your wish lists for you. Head to my shopping page to see my favourites picks right now.
NAP for me is the front runner when it comes to online shopping, that site is dangerous and they make it far to easy for us to shop. They are my go to site, fast delivery, UK based (but ship world wide) they have the best buy and the packaging just kills me. Did you know they have the “Shh” packaging? This packaging is in brown paper and it saids “Shh your secret is save with us” how epicically convenient for girls like me who have to hide 99% of their purchases. I have to try this out.
This was my look for the day, a smart but casual and comfortable outfit.
I am always sporting a groutfit (grey outfit) but my accessories are some of my absolute faves. This was my first ever BALMAIN leather jacket, I love how boxy and over sized it is. If you are making the jump from being just designer accessories and you want to invest in designer ready to wear I fully recommend you make your first investment in a leather jacket. I love Balmain, the fit is perfection and I love how Balmain jacket has that signature look; I can spot a Balmain jacket form miles away. I am a obsessive person okay. Click here, here and here to see some examples of a good leather jacket investment.
My tee is by J.Crew. I thinks it’s important to buy good quality tees because they last longer. This one was £30 but it washes so much better than my cheap ones. Click here to shop.
This Saint Laurent chevron bag with black hardware is my most used bag. I only saw it once and did not hesitate to buy it. It has been sold out ever since but it just came back in stock, click here to shop. This leather is extremely durable, it fits so much more than my CHANEL WOCs, the chain is perfect for shoulder or cross body and the black on black means I can wear it with everything. The bonus element is the price, it’s one of the cheapest Saint Laurent bags you can buy. I wouldn’t hesitate too much about this one as it will probe sell out again pretty soon.
My boots are the dream for me. I bough this two years ago for my first NYFW. I wanted heels that were comfortable and they are just that. I wear these to death, they are so unique, they give me height and the most comfortable heels I own. I was really worried to spend so much on a pair of boots but it’s been beyond worth my money. Cost per wear these work out to be £8.68. They retail at £695, I think I have worn them a minimum of 80 times. 695 divided by 90 = 8.68. Cleary these are a bargain, I just did the math so it can not be argued. Click here to shop. I have my eye on this pair I think I need a simple black pair to wear with everything. This would mean I would own four pairs of these boots as I already have them in denim, and burgundy.
The shoes I can not get out of my head right now is the NO.21 Pom Pom Mules. it was instant love at first sight and I think these will be great for my Dallas trip. Click here to shop.
GUCCI is killing it this season. I have picked some of my favourite accessories.
