Attending a pre wedding luncheon with the girls and want to follow this seasons Autumn/Winter monochrome trend… then opt for some ultra cool monochromes as seen in the beautifully understated and elegant Helmung Lang collections this Autumn/Winter 15 available at Brown Thomas Stores nationwide.
Today we went solo and opted for the Winter White shade throughout the look.
The weather has been so mild that a blazer was the perfect option for lunch….this collarless blazer is a warm winter white from H & M, from a few seasons ago but a classic nonetheless with its timeless tailoring. Soft waist accentuation & plain design lines make it an instant success whether casual or in this case slightly formal at lunch.
Its so easy to be inspired with current craze for patterns , motifs and ruffles ,just adoring the work from Peter Pilotto , just check out his ruffle silk blouse…. if you love pattern you will simply adore the entire collection. Today we went one step further and added some 3D ruffles with this oversized flower form the frequently visited nationwide fabric store Hickeys.
The very off white belt is vintage, much loved and worn as with all vintage items. The circle buckle detail echoes the retro decade of choice this year the 70s , check out Stella Macarthy for a beautiful faux leather alternative, available in a tan colour and a slightly larger version.The Skirt today is midi length with a warm gold brocade detail, Art Deco style to be exact, adding some necessary glitz as we begin to start the party season in ernest. This seasons love of the Art Deco is surely inspired from the last season of the cult show Downton Abbey.
