INSPIRATION | PEARLS FOR DAYS!

Seeing all the new spring colours in stores has me begging for summer to come ASAP! I’ve been craving the sunshine and 20+ degree weather, but sadly winter is here to stay for another five weeks (at least). With the upcoming spring trends I’ve noticed a surge of interest in pearls. Usually when I see pearls it just reminds me of my grandma’s pearls, not really my style. But the modern take by Sophie Bille Brahe has me craving for some pearl and gold accessories. Definitely in love with the pearl bar earrings, if only my ears were pierced….sigh.

INSPIRATION | ALL WRAPPED UP AND PRETTY

 

 

Deck the halls with all that holly….I’ve been feeling particularly festive lately with it being December and the holidays right around the corner. Scoping out the blog-o-sphere I came across these bow detail heels and think they could be an awesome DIY addition for holiday style. How cute are they? It’s like your feet are all wrapped up, like a present!

It’s All in the Heels

Scrolling through pages of drool worthy photographs on Jak and Jil, these heels are oriental fabulous! A little bit of investigating and behold its Dries Van Noten Fall 2013 RTW collection. Oriental details seem to be a big part of recent fashion designer collections, it kind of wants me to break out the traditional Chinese garments tucked in the far corners of my closet and mix it into daily outfits. I really like how its a detail that isn’t screaming look at me, but subtly there; an elegant and intricate detail that makes you want to take a closer look. I can definitely see myself donning a pair of heels like this with boyfriend jeans and a white tee or dressing it up with a little white dress (since it is summer after all, the black can come back in the fall).

DIY Inspiration: Alexander Wang Duffel Bag

Image from here

I’ve been lusting after this Alexander Wang Rocco Stud-Bottom bag for quite some time and while wandering through Zara the other day, I found THE perfect DIY solution! The Zara bowler bag from the trf section (here & here) is the perfect candidate for this DIY, made of man-made leather it’ll be a whole lot lighter than the real version (not to mention cheaper) and all you would need is a bit of time and some flat head cone studs. This is definitely a DIY I would love to work on this summer, here’s to hoping I can get all the supplies I need!
