#FashionCrush: That C.Nicol ‘Pippa’ Oversized Clutch

Happy Sunday everybody!

Today’s post is an outfit I wore last week to a work event and one I felt I looked good in. Now the star of the show here is my new C.Nicol Pippa oversized clutch bag which I absolutely adore! C.Nicol is an uber cool up & coming British accessories designer (and friend!) and I’m so pleased to be one of the first ones┬áto be sporting one of her bags.

I love everything about that clutch. The colour which just adds that pop of colour to any outfits. It’s big enough to carry a notebook/Ipad/everyday essentials. Looks SO chic and sophisticated yet is still quirky.

Check out C.Nicol‘s Facebook page here.

#FashionCrush: Armani Exchange Summer 2015 Collection

You know what? I never went into an Armani Exchange store. Nope. Never. I’m not really sure why. I guess I never thought their style was mine. Well, looking at the look book for their new Summer 2015 Collection, I must put both of my hands up and admit that I was completely wrong. Yeah, that happens too! Not too often so don’t get used it ­čśë

When I was sent news & images of the new collection I almost dismissed it and filed the email under ‘Other brands’. But then I got my uber cool, bright coral Armani Exchange tote bag (here) and I thought I’d give it a chance. To my surprise I discovered a really chic, effortless and clean┬ástyle. I am now a complete convert and in fact cannot wait to go check out their store in Dubai Mall!

#FashionCrush: Out & about in London

As you may know if you follow me on Instagram, last week I was in London for a couple of days. I was attending the infamous SABRE Awards for which MEPRA (Middle East PR Association) – which I manage, was shortlisted. We lost (boohoo!) but I had an amazing amazing time! Had forgotten how much I loved this city…

Of course when I landed, I froze on the spot, it was 9C and I only had a little jacket so my first stop was Primark where I got a lovely coat and a few pieces of jewelry for a mere 30 Pounds. Bargain! Love Primarni (that’s what I used to call it back in the days)!

Here is the outfit:

On the 2nd day I attended the Sabre Gala Awards and wore my beloved gala dress from Debenhams! Felt so ‘Sicilian’!!

Forgot to mention this fab leather shoulder bag from up & coming British accessories label C.Nicol? The colour is amazing and you can wear it both as a shoulder bag or cross-body which is so convenient. Flats are from New Look.

2015-05-21 15.25.03I’ve of course brought a few bits of make-up and skincare which I’ll share in another post ­čśë

#FashionCrush: The GAP knit that made my Winter hols all the more warmer

Of course in Dubai, Winter really means, Summer, only just a little chillier. But in Europe, in France in particular it means Winter. I spent a couple of weeks home in the South of France over the Christmas Holidays and because I hadn’t had a proper Winter in 2 years, I made sure I was prepared to face the minus temperatures.

A quick look around the shops and I ended up in Gap where I found this beautiful grey wholly jumper which felt warm and cosy! And it did not disappoint! I probably wore it every day (or almost!) and, paired with a little thermal vest top, it kept me warm throughout!

I also picked up a couple of pair of winter socks in Gap which, again, I wore to death as they really kept my feet snug inside my boots.

I still managed to catch a terrible cold and a bit of a bronchitis BUT all looking stylish!

#FashionCrush: Mix it up with Nayomi PJ’s

I must confess to a weird habit! I never keep my clothe on when I am at home! OK, that sounded a bit… dodgy I get it. What I mean is, I don’t keep my daytime clothes on but instead slip into a comfy outfit instead: track pants and a t-shirt, leggings, pyjamas… but then these aren’t the most stylish are they?

Well, I stumbled upon Nayomi‘s new range of pjs which I thought looked both comfy & snug but also stylish! Now proud owner of 2 pairs which I can, again, mix and match so effectively I now have 4 different fashionable yet super cosy ‘at-home’ outfits!!

Perfect for those nights in!

Check out the collection below: really cool, young, funky pieces…
