Isabel Marant is the Queen of laid-back Bohemian chic. Her Etoile line offers a slightly more youthful, relaxed, purse friendly collection that always remains true to the cool, boho aesthetic of her main line.

The semi sheer, chiffon 'Prewitt' dress is the kind of style I love to wear; it is lightweight and feminine with that laid-back, edgy, Parisian feel immediately associated with the brand. In a burgundy & rose colourway, the dress features long sleeves with buttoned cuffs, an all over leaf print, a cute ruffled skirt, sexy shoulder cut-outs and a back keyhole detail with button closure to the neck. It comes with an optional, matching self tie making it a very versatile, easy to wear piece.

I wanted to style the dress in a very relaxed, casual way so I paired it with my Marant-a-like ankle boots from High Street brand Karen Millen. I love this outfit, it is so 70s. I'll always be a bit of a Hippy at heart and I love to reflect that in what I wear.

Manley Traits

I've blogged about this beautiful skirt by Emma Manley before (see here). With it's perforated leather & silk panels and cool stud embellishment, it is a firm favourite and is worn time and time again; it was inevitable that it would feature in another Blog post!

On this occasion I styled it quite casually, pairing it with another great Manley piece, the 'Dakota' Horse Shoe Jumper. It is made from a light marino wool & linen mix and the big collar is the same soft, perforated leather as the skirt. It too is embellished, with two gold horse shoe studs. I wear this top with jeans, shorts and all kinds of skirt shapes; it is tremendously versatile!

My accessories include the red satchel that comes virtually everywhere with me these days, a beautiful over-sized Michael Kors watch & the most fantastic pair of manly brogues. I'm really into flat, androgynous footwear at the moment. Pairing them with this pretty skirt gives them a playful, flirty twist and the two-tone, colour block design really makes them stand out. They compliment this cute, quirky look perfectly!

A Load Of Bull

The latest addition to my ever growing collection of Natalie B Coleman pieces is this gorgeous bull print dress. It's the kind of piece you would expect to see on the Olsen twins in an issue of Vogue or Tattler; it is impossibly cool.

The dress is from Natalie's stunning A/W13 collection 'I Belong To Me'; she says she came up with the exploding bull print in different scales and colours, inspired by Cubism and Hopper’s Hotel lobby colours, with some pop art colour references thrown in. It is featured on a number of great pieces in the collection. I fell in love with the print as soon as I saw it, not least of all because my birth sign is Taurus, the Bull!

The dress is made from a luxurious, heavy satin and features the digitally printed bull design to the front, voluminous bat-wing sleeves in a 100% wool mix, an absolutely stunning butter soft lambskin leather back in brushed gold and is finished off with a gold zip, tailor made in Italy. Natalie's great attention to detail & a sophisticated finish means that even the lining is special; it is her own special jacquard weave of gold lace bulls. The dress also has slit pockets to the side & you all know how much I love a pocket!

This is the perfect day-to-night piece & for it's first ever (daytime) outing, I styled it with my much loved satchel & simple flat brogues. It can easily be dressed up for a glamorous night out by adding some chunky gold jewellery & towering metallic heels. It also looks great styled with a skinny belt, a great way to show off a tiny waist & give the oversized dress some structure. Versatile & gorgeous; I'll be wearing this dress forever!
