A Monochrome colour palette for SS13..

I love the timelessness of Monochrome. For me, you can’t do much wrong with black and white! It’s simple and chic, you can go from androgynous to Chanel perfection! Seeing the Monochrome uniforms marching up and down the runways of Lanvin and Chloe (through my computer screen, naturally..) made me one happy fashionista! Another great thing about Monochrome is an on trend outfit can be made from the very basics in your wardrobe!

Trouser suits were huge this season, especially on the catwalks of Chloe; for an easy, sport luxe look these trousers from H&M are perfect! Add a vest and high tops during the day for a cool urban look or a blazer and heels for the evening - Easy! I am in love with this Blazer from Miss Selfridge! The strong shoulders and black lapel remind me of something I saw in the Lanvin SS13 show and I’m really digging this t-shirt from H&M, yet another item that can be dressed up or down, just be sure to add bold accessories!

The Monochrome trend is definitely a trend I’ll be sporting this season! How about you?

'Back 2 School' checklist

- a bag, Mary Poppins style!

If you watched ‘Mary Poppins’ when you were little, you’re childhood was pretty sweet. Remember how when she arrived to the Banks residence with this carpet bag, and she pulled out a huge plant, a mirror and even a lamp? the bag was pretty much bottomless! and she pretty much had her whole life in there, right down to her pair of lilac pumps.

When looking for a bag (generally, as well as for school/college), I always strive to find something practical, i.e to fit ‘my whole life’ in there and to look cute!. As much as I wish to buy the first pretty tote I see, my mother has taught me that when shopping for items I’m going to be using a lot, the quality of it trumps everything else! This means, investing in a well made, leather bag! Please don’t fret readers, I know some leather bags can be quite expensive, but high street favourites such as TOPSHOP and River Island offer very well made bags for reasonable prices, such as this tan tote bag from River Island for £70, or this leather and faux pony skin bag from TOPSHOP which doubles as a messenger bag for £60 (pretty awesome deal actually). However, I did spot this faux leather backpack from TOPSHOP for £36, the metal clips make this look really secure, and it gives off a simple edginess to it.

However, in the past I have purchased non-leather bags from Boohoo.com and ALDO, that have lasted me for just under 7 months, which is actually pretty good considering the way I treated some of them (I’m not the most careful person, but I do try, LOL)

XO, TDR ❤
