Must haves of the season!

Mirrored aviators are the biggest trend this season, affordable Ray Bans are all you need to glam any outfit up whether you're going for the casual look or just accessorizing for a glam lunch.

One word: PRADA. The double zip tote in Saffiano leather is pure luxury at its finest. This bag will last many generations and will make any lady look chic and put together aesthetically.

Statement necklaces have been around for a while now, now the bigger the statement the louder your'e heard. Especially pieced with a simple tee for a daytime chic look.

No time to get that perfect salon hair every morning? Don't worry, messy is the new perfect. From messy buns, messy pony tails and that Brigitte Bardot bed hair.

November Must Haves/Wish List

The Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere has been on my wish list for a while now (ever since its recent release). I always liked the classic Speedy, however it would be much more practical with a a strap for traveling - so the LV Speedy Bandouliere 30 would be perfect!

I love simple wallets and preferably in black as i know they would look tacky after a few weeks of use if any other colour. I have a feeling this little Marc Jacobs Classic Q Wallet is coming my way for Christmas. 

Ray Ban Outsiders Oversized Wayfarers are always going to be 'in' and look good on everyone. A definite must have for summer! My bf and I have the same ones. Enough said.

Now this is a trend that everyone seems to be sporting. The chunky gold chain necklace. Can be dressed up or down and goes with most outfits!

I have toned down on the 'Mac look' makeup and have been sporting a natural face, with bronzer and a simple winged eyeliner makeup look this month. Simple and elegant.

I always love when I found the perfect lip colour for each season. This is definately one I will be wearing all summer - YSL Rouge Volupte in No.30 Faubourg Peach.

Swedish blogger Elin Kling sports one of my favourite looks, the effortless shirt-tuck in distressed shorts. Can look dressy or casual, just add some pumps or sandals depending on the event. Now can the weather get warmer already so I can start wearing shorts again!

Burch Style

I have been crazily obsessed (as of late) with Tory Burch, whether it's her brand or her. A stylish mother and successful business woman of her international brand 'Tory Burch'. Not international enough for her to be as well known in New Zealand.

I found a few images floating around the scene, so I thought I would share with you all some images of her $16M Southampton, NY, home she shares with her children.

Gala Extravaganza!

I wanted to share with you some images from 'The Met Gala After Party' at the Crown (NYC). Although this is an event that occurred at the beginning of May, I still love the photography (courtesy of Kevin Tachman) and style of all the guests. So elegant and chic. Everyone looks like they are having fun, after all, that is what an after party is all about.

Fashionably crowding outside Crown.

My favourite star couple, Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

Bruno Mars and Janelle Monae singing up a storm (love this girls music)!

'Modern Family' beauty, Sofia Vergara looking glamourous as always. 

Eva Mendes looking chic in Black and White, its like a Dior commercial!

And the mesmerizing Karlie Kloss, love her eyes (even in a black and white photo - so classic).

The most important room in the house!

Ever since I saw Olivia Palermo's TriBeca apartment, I was inspired! Especially by her wardrobe. Not only does she have the most amazing pieces, but also the layout and design of the wardrobe itself is impeccable.

I have been inspired to look for ideas and precedents for my own dream walk in wardrobe. It has definitely occured to me that I want to change one of the spare rooms in the house into my new clothes, shoes, bags accessories room!

Here are some inspirational images that I have gathered to gain a bit of perspective as to how or what to look into for wardrobe design...

I love printed rugs and sparkles, however there is something about the simplicity of white furniture and minimal decorative features that just have a relaxing demure to any environemnt. PS. LOVE the LV Deauville!

Aren't the storage baskets adorable in this wardrobe?? Always looking for alternative storage tips, i have way too many things! Look below at all those delicious Chanel bags! I dream that I will grow a collection like this one day, perfectly arranged as a baggaholic center piece. 

I really like the idea of trying to glam up a small space with an elegant chandelier, hence why this image is in the mix.

Realistically, this is the size of wardrobe i am working with, good to see the space is being used efficiently and with all those shelves and racks there is no clutter!

I hope you are as inspired as I am, to finish off with this gorgeous photo of a french style mirror sitting elegantly among a subtle palette of couture gowns.

Dreams really can come true!

Where do I even begin with Olivia Palermo's gorgeous Tribeca apartment!? Admittedly,  I am a little style obsessed with our favourite condescending New York City socialite. And now to see proper images of her NYC apartment, rather than trying to catch a glimpse on 'The City', is inspirational! I love everything about this apartment. From the grey-toned zebra print rug that adds a touch of glam to her wardrobe, to her antique Hermes tray (an extremely rare find these days) sitting effortlessly on the Carlyle Custom Convertible white leather coffee table.

My favourite part of this apartment is of course the wardrobe nonetheless, from her  designer items (I dream of her Hermes Birkins and Kellys), to her more affordable pieces (glad to know she still rocks with Zara from time to time).
