The Masai inspired style of jewelllery in bold and bright colours caught my eye while I was engaging in a little window shopping on Shopbop (easily one of my favourites). The techno tribal style in eye-popping colours is right up my street. Fun, playful and ideal wrist candy. It's calling out for a little weekend DIY.
I love the versatility of a hardworking piece that's easy to dress up or down as the occasion requires. My denim shirt is easily one of the hardest working pieces in my wardrobe. Whenever I'm stuck for what to wear, by day I wear it with skinny cords, by night with a leather skirt.

One of my favourite things about chilly weather is the need to warm up in cosy gear such as faux fur. It's fun, cute, glamorous and sexy all at the same time. I love either adding a fur collar to my favourite coats and jackets or when it gets really chilly, wearing my favourite fur coats and jackets over everything.
Here are my favourite picks around now.

A metallic finish can be a subtle or striking, glamorous or edgy way to shine through. It all depends on the choices you make and what you do with them. At the moment I'm most drawn to burnt golds and bronze and here are some of my favourites.

Overnight, Autumn descended on San Francisco. It went from very warm to seriously chilly overnight and once I got over the initial temperature shock, I started getting ready to embrace a few months of winter weather gear.
Over the weekend I was catching up on my online magazines and when I came across this amazing coat feature on my net-a-porter app, I just had to share.
Lanvin Cape | A.P.C. Turtleneck Cape | Stella McCartney Wool Tweed Cape
Burberry Knitted Wool Blend Coat | Belstaff Shearling Coat | Chloe Oversized Shearling Coat
I came across this at the weekend its the skirt that really caught my eye. On a chilly, dreary and lazy day at home I would love to do a DIY job on the skirt (similar to the first DIY in this post). Looks as if sitting in it might be uncomfortable for the wearer and dangerous for those near you!
