J Brand White Maria Skinny Jeans

J Brand is one of my favourite jeans designers (Current Elliott is my another) and these J Brand babies are perfect for teaming with either plains or prints. High waisted, they are more flattering for certain figures than low waisted jeans.

The length of these jeans is 29.5″, making them ankle crops if you’re a tall girl, or just about full length if you’re under about 5’4″. They’re a nice skinny fit, with a 10″ leg opening.

This leather clutch has been embossed all over with a python print design, and the luxurious feel teams well with the dress above. Fully lined, the clutch fastens with a zip and the zip pull doubles as a wrist strap for ease of use.

A special technique has been used to engrave the python design into the leather, which creates the effect of a a shimmer across the scales adding a 3D effect to the design.

Anya Hindmarch Bathurst Bow Soft Satchel

Here we have the new Anya Hindmarch Bathhurst Bow Satchel, made from soft leather. It is available in bluebell, pictured left, and many other shades and textures (pictured below right) and is available right now from my-wardrobe.com at the link at the foot of this article.

The bag is a new style from Anya Hindmarch, and employs their trademark top quality leather and attention to detail. The bag is a structured, ladylike handbag which takes its name from the 1st Baron Bathurst, a politician from the 18th century.

In many ways, this bag has a vintage look, yet it is also thoroughly modern. Made from soft capra leather, the satchel is a flap over style with an enamel bow closure on the front, reminiscent of a cameo from days gone by.

The bag has a single top handle for carrying it in the hand, and comes with a further two removable leather straps, enabling the bag to be worn over the shoulder or across the body. One of the straps matches the colours of the bag and the other contrasts with it.
All the colours
Inside, the bag has a soft suede lining. In signature Anya Hindmarch style the pockets are labelled “Bits & Bobs”, “Sunglasses”, “Lipstick” and “Phone”. There is also a pen pocket and a detachable leather key fob.

There a popper fastenings on the side of the bag and studs on the base to offer protection.

It should be stated that this is a spacious bag, with plenty of room for all your bits and pieces whether you are using it as a power dressing workbag during the week, or as an accompaniment to your weekend style.

Anya Hindmarch Bathurst Eye

The Anya Hindmarch Bathurst Eye , as worn by Alexa Chung, is a similar style of bag which is available in calf leather and also the more exotic alligator. There is currently a waiting list for the Bathurst Eye bags.

The main difference between the bags is that the Bathurst Eye is considerably smaller than the Bathurst Bow, which is spacious and perfect for both work and weekend wardrobes.

Bathurst Bow: 22cm x 32cm x 14cm

Kenzo Red Pink Black Patent Mini Bag

I love this Kenzo bag and I think it goes particularly well with the dress above, the colour of the panels reminscent of the colours in the front panel of the dress.

Made from patent leather, the bag adds a directional edge to your look. A mini satchel style, it features a branded magnetic clasp fastening on the front, a single top handle and a removable cross body strap.

The bag features patent leather panels in red, pink and black with a marbled effect. Inside, it is lined in black fabric and there is a zip fastening pocket. The bag features a Kenzo branded hang tag.

Terry de Havilland Red Marguerite Snake Platform Sandals

Terry de Havilland has been designer shoes for years and is known as the master of the wedge heel. The shoes on the left are stiletto platform sandals made from a combination of red snake print patent leather and red suede. The toes are caged by a strappy design with a peep toe, and the shoes are held securely on the foot with a gold tone buckle fastening ankle strap.

The shoes certainly add a serving of glamour to the dress and bag above and are a great way to complete the look.

There is no need to over embellish this outfit with jewellery as it speaks for itself; simply add a pair of gold earrings and a matching bracelet or watch.

AllSaints Aura Dress AllSaints Aura Dress

This is a quirky yet sexy party look. It’s young and fun, yet figure flattering too, and all the elements of the outfit can be easily teamed with other items for maximum use.

AllSaints Aura Dress

This AllSaints evening dress is structured dress with cleverly shaped black side panels to create the illusion of a tiny waist. The green part of the dress has an all over geometric design and there is a full length exposed zip at the back.

The dress is sleeveless with a sweetheart neckline, two slim shoulder straps and it falls to well above the knee. The style is bodycon and slim fitting, although it does fit true to size.

The neckline is suited to a necklace, and you could go for a standard pendant or a more edgy choker style.

This dress would also look good with classic black stilettos or a pair of black ankle boots.

This silver grey box clutch is a brand new style from Diane Von Furstenberg.

The clutch also has a matching detachable shoulder strap; the inside is gusseted and there is a slip pocket.

This clutch is perfect for adding polish to any party look, and in addition its neutral tones mean it will go with anything, except maybe gold tones, and would look good teamed with a long black dress for a black tie dinner.

A collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and the Brazilian Melissa shoe company, the Lady Dragon design is a modern day classic.

These shoes are ideal for dancing the night away. They are made to be supremely comfortable, with a padded insole and adjustable ankle strap.
