The Cat That Got The Cream

Call them what you will, rompers, playsuits, catsuits, all-in-ones; I am absolutely obsessed with them & they are an all year round staple in my wardrobe.

Season after season, Twenty8twelve produce the very best rompers & this one, the 'Charisse', is such a favourite, I bought it in two colours! The delicate cream one worn here & a cool, dark grey one that will no doubt appear in a future blog post! 

This gorgeous romper features 3/4 length sleeves, a sheer chiffon blouse style top with a long slit key-hole back, a cute pleat detail at the neck & padded shoulders that give this delicate piece a bit of an edge. The shorts are fully lined,  feature side pockets and a hidden zipper at the back. It comes with a same colour camisole to wear beneath the sheer top, to protect your modesty!

One thing I very rarely do is matchy matchy looks but on this occasion I couldn't resist matching the rich cream colour of my T8T romper with an amazing pair of cream, studded Christian Louboutin shoes. I continued the matchy theme by accessorising with an oversized gold Michael Kors watch to compliment the gold studs in the shoes.

Era by Kymerah

Regular readers on here will know how very much I love US fashion brand Kymerah, "a sophisticated women's line created with the concepts of style, luxury and simplicity". Well you can only imagine my delight when I heard they were designing a diffusion range exclusively for urbanoutfitters.com

As soon as I saw the collection I fell in love with this gorgeous LWD (little white dress). It was everything I have come to expect from Kymerah but at a fraction of their usual prices. I had to have it!

This beautifully fitted piece in a 'suits all skin tones' shade of ivory features a wide scoop neckline with a sexy cutout detail just above the chest, an open back with two exposed zips (forgive the dreadful photo of the back of the dress, my poor old camera is dying!). It is fully lined & machine washable and is the perfect mini length, even on a shorty like me!

I styled the dress with my favourite NARS red lipstick and the most AMAZING red patent leather, multi-strap Chanel shoes. These shoes never fail to cause a stir when I wear them out; can you see the fantastic gold quilted wedge detail on the heels? Classic Chanel! 

When my dress arrived I loved it so much, I logged straight back onto urbanoutfitters.com to buy another Era by Kymerah piece that I loved, a long white sheer panelled maxi dress, but it was sold out; dammit! If you fancy a beautiful, affordable piece of Kymerah, log onto that website right now; the remaining pieces are all on sale so grab yourself a very special bargain!

Flying Fox

With its glorious, billowing design, the Flying Fox jacket is one of my all time favourite Winter Kate pieces! 

Perfectly capturing the Winter Kate aesthetic, this majestic jacket features a v-neckline, one-button front, printed semi-sheer crinkled silk chiffon in a mix of blush, black and cream colours with a cute black crochet trim on the shoulders. It is the perfect piece for the modern day bohemian and a typical Summer outfit for me!

For an effortless, casual look, I simply slipped it on over a plain white tee, my favourite denim shorts & my go-to Isabel Marant-esque Summer ankle boots.

This gorgeous kimono inspired mini dress represents Nicole Richie's amazing Winter Kate designs perfectly. Made of vintage silk chiffon, it features a  beautiful abstract floral print in delicate pinks & greys, long semi-sheer floaty sleeves, a hidden front zipper with dual hook & eye closure and a softly quilted belt that ties at the waist. This stand-out piece immediately gives you that vintage inspired edgy boho style that is so associated with Nicole Richie.

It is an incredibly versatile dress; I have dressed it up, dressed it down,  worn it in Summer with nude coloured shoes to compliment the neutral hues & in Winter with black opaque tights and shoeboots to give it an edgier feel.

Today I have styled it with gorgeous Alexander Wang peep-toe wedges & a fabulous array of silver Tiffany jewellery!

Keen As Mustard

I have been wearing Twenty8twelve (the fashion brand previously designed by Sienna & Savannah Miller) since their very first collection was launched in 2007. I was one of their very first customers & I still get butterflies in my tummy when their new collections are launched. 

I have a ridiculous number of pieces from every collection and in fact, rarely a day goes by when I'm not wearing something T8T. So, based on 'Value Per Wear' (Hubby drums this concept into me!), my Twenty8twelve clothes have been practically free!

The 'Monette' dress is from their S/S09 collection. I was immediately drawn to its glorious, vibrant, mustard colour! Oh j'adore! It needs nothing by way of accessories because of the great colour & the gorgeous pussy bow detail, so I simply slip on my ever faithful Geri by Next nude patent shoes (in stock again for A/W12) & lashings of MAC 'Ruby Woo' red lipstick & I'm good to go!
