Happy Birthday Aly :)

Happy birthday Aly!! Every year I hunt for the perfect gift for my partner in crime and this month’s treats are all things I would buy Aly for her special day.

1. ZARIIN – Gold plated blue and green bead mesh hoops earrings


These earrings are oh so chic and within complete any outfit in a heartbeat. Aly loves accesorising and these earrings would fit in perfectly in her closet.

2. TURQUOISE & GOLD – Persian green crossback maxi dress


I’ll let you in on a secret. Every year Aly plans her birthday outfit. This is my pick for this year.

3. Valentino –  Rockstud 100 t-bar heeled sandals


I have known Al to go weak in the knees for bags and watches, but these are the only shoes I have seen her crave.

4. Roberto Cavalli – ‘Pearls Mask’ Necklace


The two of us love a lot of accessories. I use my bags and shoes and Aly uses her jewellery and watches. I think this necklace while out of her comfort zone would add the right amount of oomph to a night out outfit.

5. Neverfull MM

And finally.. Her Achilles heel is anything from Louis Vuitton. Tote bags are the lady’s style and this Neverful in green epi leather is absolute perfection.

Happy Birthday Aly!!! I hope you have everything on this list and any list this birthday and always!! Xoxo


Whistling Away

Before you read today’s post, I would like you to take a minute and remember Tiger Shroff – yep the guy who looks like Kareena Kapoor. More specifically remember this…

British brand Alexander McQueen presented a stellar collection. If you haven’t ordered a pair yet, now is the time to actually go and buy a pair of calf length gladiator sandals. It is definitely the next big thing. Notice how the hemlines are balanced with the high footwear. I loved the nude top dress and can’t wait to see the outfit in real life.

Gladiator sandals made an appearance again on the Valentino runway. As always, there were some gorgeously embroidered dresses. What has completely thrown me though is the lack of light, bright, summery colours on the runway. I’m not complaining – when the designs are this good, anything goes.


And finally, why I thought of Tiger Shroff. The Chanel runway was inspired by protest, and featured a whistle on a chain as a feature accessory. While I understand the reason and thought process behind the runway, I don’t quite get the accessories. If you are going to drop close to £3,000 on a bag, I would still suggest going in for one of their classic designs.
