I was a little bit delighted when I received the press release for STORM’s new Zentrek watch. It’s a little more bulky and casual than watches I usually like, but it has a nice summer feel, so there’s no doubt it’s current.
Available in both a matte and polished finish, STORM have given you choice with this style, which I really appreciate – and I’m sure you do, too. Plus, it’s available in both blue and black.
Practical with its 24 hour features and STORM’s signature lazer glass, ensuring longevity, the Zentrek is definitely a style to consider buying this summer.

Zuhair Murad’s Autumn/Winter 2014 couture collection is a great mix of colour and monochrome, and perfect if you love beautiful evening gowns that are, without doubt, red carpet-worthy. Figure-hugging and a great mix of off and on-the-shoulder, this is exactly what I expect a couture collection to look like. Plus, it’s really wearable, which I just love!

If I’ve had a stressful day, coming in, making coffee and collapsing on my bed to listen to European indie folk band Daughter is the perfect cure. ‘Youth’ is a particular favourite of mine, which is why I chose it for this week’s ‘Music Monday’…
Last week, the lovely people over at Paradigma Footwear sent me these beautiful shoes. Firstly, I adored them simply because they are handmade in Portugal. Secondly, I realised I loved everything else about them, too. They’re versatile and INCREDIBLY comfy, which is really, really important to me. I’m not someone who’ll wear a pair of shoes that hurt just because they look good. That’s not fashion; that’s stupidity.
I figured I’d most probably pair these with a navy suit for a stylish work look in the office, but then throw them on with a pair of navy chinos and a white or pastel blue shirt for a slightly more relaxed day look when I’m just pottering about with friends.

This week’s ‘Photo Friday’ highlights this beautiful photo titled ‘Trust’ by LA-based photographer Lola Mitchell, which I discovered while flicking through Saatchi Art. Effortless!

Red, Viktor & Rolf, couture and plenty of luxurious velvet… For Autumn/Winter 2014, it can’t go wrong!
Slightly eccentric cuts are shown next to effortless, classic evening dresses, and everything’s really beautiful. There’s plenty of movement and quirky femininity through the use of eccentric, giant bows and I just love it!
What do we love more than something girly and edgy and a bit unconventional? I know the answer…

If you’re going to invest your money in designer, I like to think that the classic styles are where you start. Owning something simple, timeless and versatile is a must, especially if you’re a guy who tends to grab at clothes in the wardrobe without even looking, which I often do!
Burgundy is one of my favourite colours and that’s most of the reason as to why I’ve chosen this Dolce & Gabbana polo shirt as a wardrobe essential. Pair this with some denim shorts or chinos in the summer and some plain denim jeans or trousers for the rest of the year. You’ll look mighty dapper!

Most of the time, Topshop prints are just ugly as they try to be “cool” by reusing prints from 50 years ago ALL the time. However, sometimes, just sometimes, they get it right. This polka dot/floral print is just perfect. Plus, I really like cropped jackets in the summer – they give a sort of cool elegance that’s perfect if you’re working in the city. Throw this on with a plain summer dress or, for work, replace your boring blazer with this jacket. It’ll certainly make your outfit pop!
