Chanel Chance is my perfume jam. It was the first ever designer perfume I bought and I wore it for years. It became my go to. My scent. The one I was known for.
Damn. That was my initial reaction when I saw the latest drop from my fave French brand, Chloé. Who, by my standards, make the dreamiest clothes, bags and shoes, known to man. I’ve picked out the five items I would buy if I had a helluva lot of money to spare.
Any time I get a whiff of a new Chloé collection I get the feels. I then start imagining myself as a free spirit, running through fields of daisies in my billowing, ruffled, sheer dress, Chloé of course. And then I blink and crash back to reality. Here are a few of the reasons why I dream of being a Chloé girl.
For me Chloe has that whole whimsical, bohemian, watch-me float-around-in-a-field vibe nailed.
I’m talking sheer lace dresses, voluminous hareem-style pants, halter tops made from lengths of scarf, a strong 70s colour palette and wedges (hello) with buckled straps up to the ankles.
They caught me hook, line and sinker.
These three items are definitely on my wish list:
Silk-Trimmed Lace Dress, £897.75
I imagine running through a field of buttercups in this ensemble.
Check out the full collection on The Outnet, here.
They both have something in common, a delicious baby blue colour, which is refreshing against a sea of black and navy.
I’d like to start with the bang on-trend Chloé Alpaca-Blend Blanket Cape.
Just look at the folds and layers, the way it hangs, the draping around the neck. I am obsessed with this cocoon-like coat.
The other coat just so happens to be from a brand I hadn’t heard of before, Finds.
Central Saint Martins graduate Rejina Pyo is the brains behind this Two Tone Faux Fur Coat, focusing on tailoring and graphic patterns.
Now, I own a lot of coats but I what I don’t own is a faux-fur number. This one fits the bill nicely. I like how it’s in sky blue and not the typical black, cream or mink. I like how heavy and thick this look and how it falls to the knee. This coat means business and I’m down with that. What I’m not down with is £1,350. Damn.
That won’t stop me daydreaming…
What coats have you got your eye on?
me nursing a hangover and looking like death – this is not an
exaggeration. Honestly, slapping on the make up could not even fix this
recruitment company Henry Fox sponsored the event and were the lovely
team who invited me along to join them in the scramble for new, well,
to that of a meat market. Imagine rails of clothes (Primark style ready
to be rumbled through) down the middle, surrounded by counters filled
with beauty products and accessories, narrowly topped off with booths
crammed with heels that I can only dream about. All you needed were a few
designer items, knock-down prices and a bundle of girls ready to splash
their cash. Enter us!
blue shoes fellow blogger, Man Repeller, had donated but
unfortunately they weren’t my size.
a little on the large side so definitely needs a belt to pull it all
together but it has the swoosh factor that I love. And the ability to cheer
you up with its bold colours, meaning I won’t go unnoticed.
one thing I can’t work out is does this dress do me any favours? I’m
not sure but I do know I feel extremely feminine when I wear it.
The weather’s starting to heat up and so is wedding fever. I have two this year and then about a million next year. I can’t believe how many of my (bestest) friends will be saying ‘I do’ so soon.
This leads me on to the classic dilemma of what to wear. There are so many rules when wedding dressing. You can’t outshine the bride, you can’t wear the same colour as the bridesmaids, god forbid you even think about wearing white.
But how white is white?
If money grew on trees I would be wearing one of the following for my friends wedding next weekend…
Chloe Pleated Silk Dress, £711
Hervé Léger Printed Bandage Dress, £699.75
Lanvin Satin Camisole Dress, £470.25
