velvet sandal

Guests of the Gucci Spring Summer 2018 show, Salma Hayek Pinault and François-Henri Pinault. Salma Hayek Pinault wore a Gucci Fall Winter 2017 dress with white lace embroidery and velvet trim details, platform sandals with bee detail and velvet GG Marmont mini bag.


You know when you take a bunch of outfit photos after an awfully long time and you hate all of them because you just feel so rusty and the heat was melting your makeup anyway but then you really want to show off your cute new With Lavender And Lace bow and the dungaree dress that you’ve worn for a week straight because you love it THAT much and so, yeah, here I am back again despite the unholy temperatures in these parts. How’s summer treating y’all?

Autumn colour palette ✶ A/W 16 fashion edit

I’ve gotten into the habit of doing these shopping guides every year which are quite fun to put together! For Autumn ‘16, I’ve picked out a palette of my favourite fall colours, including old stalwarts like mustard and recent obsessions (rose). I feel like this is quite a versatile palette as well when it comes to colour coordination. Some of my top colour schemes from here would be berry red/ forest green/ midnight blue, mustard yellow/ midnight blue, and rose pink/ forest green/ berry red. It’s quite handy if you’re trying to experiment a bit more with colours.

I’ve added all links to the products below the individual collages. I hope you like them as much as I liked window shopping for them!
