Lush Rich Nail Polish Tones by Illamasqua

21 Nov

Nail polish in rich, lush, saturated jewel tones are beautiful and that’s what i love to wear regardless of season or time of year. I’ve found these colours from different brands but Illamasqua does several shades and they are a dream.

I especially love the Viridian, it’s an unusual luxe shade of turquoise, gorgeousness personified.

You can grab each one for £13 at Beauty Bay or Illasmasqua.

Paris Fashion Week: Sooooo elegant Haider Ackermann

3 Oct

I was waiting for Haider Ackermann with bated breath and it was definitely well worth the wait. There was a quality about his collection that made me want to be silent and just stare. It was sleek, elegant, luxe and soooo polished.

I have to say though that some pieces in the collection were a tad too showy, like ‘hey, watch the slits Mister!.’ But having said that, the combination of silks and chiffon with leather, the luxe way he injected jewel tones – plush emerald, electric blue, red – into black, was amazing. And that bow detailing on the back of the jackets? Speechless! Gotta have one of those jackets.

Overall, he does an amazing work with details. I love how he works with fabrics, the intricate knotting, the unusual bows. Viva Haider Ackermann, you’re da man.

LFW: Colour Cocktail at Issa

22 Sep

It was an elegant colour fest at Issa and i looooooved it! The collection was inspired by designer Daniella Issa Helayel’s visit to India and her fascination with the bright colourful saris won by Indian women.

I love the jewel tones, crispy whites, pretty pinks and all the colour clashing. The generous draping, figure skimming styles looked absolutely elegant on the models. A very chic way to rock vibrant colours. Really really fun, a feast for the girly at heart. Here are my favs from the collection
