It's December....which means winter and Christmas!
Every year my sister and I travel up to London and enjoy a Christmas day together. This usually means Winter Wonderland, Harrods, Selfridges and Christmas lights down Oxford Street!
It was a crisp, freezing cold, sunny day which mean't I could wear my new leopard print faux fur longline coat. I am a strong believer in that style has very little to do with money, and this coat certainly did not break the bank. Designer pieces are always copied by high-street brands.....it's just about hunting them down!
I instantly picked up this coat because one; it was longline and two; I liked the original classic print. To be worn raffishly, freely or not at all. I went all-out!!
Don't be afraid to wear those fierce animal prints..... x

Back at the beginning of the month I was lucky enough to attend to Pure London - the UK's Premier Womenswear Fashion Exhibition!!
Thank you to R a I N
for collaborating with me and inviting me to support them at this event!
A showcase for new, up-and-coming labels, it was an inspiring day for me ... clothes, shoes, bags and accessories. At the end of the day my sister and I decided we definitely would love to open a shop!
Check out below a selection of some of the brands I loved .....!!!
R a I N
In true R a I N style the A/W 15 Collection on show featured signature sequins, rich embellishments and tonnes of tassles. A selection of playsuits, leggings and dresses... there is no better way to stand out in the crowd!
Also, promoting the Summer 16 collection ... I found Fashion Heaven!! The ombre yellow playsuit, cut-out jumpsuit and fully sequined two piece sets were a few of my favourites!
* R a I N giveaway coming soon ... * !!!
Made in Italy, the Love Polo
collection is aimed at the modern woman. Dresses, and polo t-shirts combine a sporty, fresh style with a feminine twist. Fresh white, quality material but with unique silk and lace details. I was instantly drawn in by the cute Chiara Polo Dress .... beautiful lace cap sleeves! Oh and it looks like a tennis dress!
From a vibrant floral playsuit, to a slinky simple white dress, Dancing Leopard is a boho-chic label inspired by Ibiza. Exotic colours, and flowing fabrics, the 2015 summer collection on show consisted of playsuits, dresses, jumpsuits, kimono's.....
Big Metal London
A jewellery brand offering a complete range of pieces. Big bold necklaces, dainty bracelets and rings ... they have it! Do check them out, they really can "make" a whole outfit!
From the stalls of Portobello Road and Camden market, Traffic People became established selling contemporary takes from classic inspired designs. Geometric prints, tailored two piece suits and long boucle jackets were on display for their A/W 15 collection.
