Happy Halloween!

I have a thing for cats (anyone who follows my Twitter/Instagram will be well aware of this) so for Halloween fancy dress there was only really one option…meeeeee

Faux fur

I’ve worn this faux fur scarf so much since the weather changed that I’ve started to feel naked without it.

It’s an old purchase from ALDO in New York but I love it like it’s new.

Satin shoes…

I’ve always wanted a pair of silver court shoes but somehow never got round to getting any… So when Rainbow Club asked me to design my own pair of heels I chose these.

I love them with skinny ripped jeans and they’ll be great with my grey pencil skirt with black lace trim.

Double tartan

This tartan headband that I found in Accessorize exactly matches my silk Zara bomber jacket, so, natch, I combined the two.

Killer heels

We all need a pair of statement heels — ones that jazz up an otherwise plain outfit — and these are mine.

I wore them for my friend Alex’s beautiful wedding and managed to survive the whole day without changing into the ballet pumps I had folded up inside my clutch bag.

Heels: Michael Kors, similar here and here.me7

Leopard love affair

I’ve always loved leopard print. When I was 15, I saved up for quite some time to buy a massive Juicy Couture leopard print faux fur coat that I wore everywhere… It was so big you could barely see me in it but I was convinced it was the best thing I would ever own.

Fast forward ten years and I’m now sporting this sleeker, more sophisticated version with black panels and a leather collar.

Last weekend I discovered that this scarf actually doubles as a cape — though I had to ignore strong disapproval from my housemates (I live with three boys). Anyway, another post on that soon.

I love throwing this scarf over my usual uniform of black, white and grey as a way to subtly add print.

Biker chic

As you will come to find out, I have a thing for boots. I don’t dare to count but I reckon I must own upwards of thirty pairs. Ankle, to the knee and thigh-high – you name it, I’ve got it.
These are, however, my current favourites. Anything involving leather, zips and buckles is a winner for me and this pair from Jones Bootmaker tick all boxes.me6
