Everyone's sense of self-worth goes up and down from day to day. It can be hard, however, to stay focused and engaged when you are feeling at a low point. I can’t understand the stress people cause on themselves by heading to that point of great sadness. One way to maintain positivity is to stop banging your head against a brick wall. This is especially helpful at those moments when you realise it isn’t worth the anxiety. 

When it comes right down to it as a society, people tend to put a lot of pressure on themselves to do things quickly, or be your own worst critic. Since I have been traveling this summer. I met a lot of interesting people who told me they feel the world is like a ticking clock and if you don’t accomplish a certain task. Or don’t make yourself more intriguing in terms of the work you do then your life is over as you know it.

I was listening and to be honest. I don’t know what those pressures are. I have never experienced them myself personally, so I can’t quite grasp how it makes them feel. But I have some advice on this topic. Stop putting unrealistic pressure on yourself. Live each day, with a positive influence.

Do something wonderful for you that makes your heart sing. This can vary according to what brings you joy. For me it has to be another handbag. I really enjoy them because I love to see a new style blow me away and I am a tough critic to please. 

Which brings me to my huge spotlight! This is on Coach’s new look. No, the luxury leather brand hasn’t done a disappearing act then reappeared. Instead, the new creative director has shifted priorities and brought out some impressive products. One thing every brand has in common is when a new creative director comes aboard one of two things can happen. Either the brand goes down the tubes and the entire line is a disaster. Or the brand gets a chic makeover that makes us want to know more. In this case, the shift is very impressive.

With so many designer brands beginning to lack in the quality department. Like leather feeling thinner than previously and hardware being not as smooth then you know what I am talking about. It seems a lot of brands are going up in price, while quality control has been cut way down. It isn’t one particular brand just having this issue. It seems to be effecting all the big fashion houses. Until this change, other brands are turning things around in a new light. 


Coach’s new creative director came in and completely revamped the entire brand to what I remember in my teen years. They kept the iconic CC monogram and redid it for a vintage effect while still being tastefully brilliant. What the brand has done right that some designers should follow is they don’t have a million styles to pick from. 


They just kept certain pieces that stay in your head, like the Parker. With its downtown New York elegance, and cool wear it with anything vibes makes it the perfect bag to wear daily. Then turn around and wear it for a night time affair going out on the town of eating life. Versatility is so important to have in a bag. And if you can’t have that then what can you have?


Have you ever had a bag that didn’t cost a lot of money and you were embarrassed for some reason to carry it? When it comes to the Parker and others I have to say this isn’t the case. I am very happy to rock this beautifully made bag with the most glamorous chain. 

My hat goes off to Coach for really showcasing what made the brand famous originally. I can’t wait to see what other new looks will be coming out for the new season.

When it comes to building an incredible wardrobe, Few Moda is key for certain staple pieces: denim essentials that’ll see you through any kind of holidays, bold colours that go from weekday to weekend in a flash and, of course, versatile statement sleeves. Which is why I am currently looking to Few Moda for new-season outerwear before the new season even arrives: Being one step ahead is my game, and Few Moda is my number one choice for beautiful pieces to become infatuated with. 

The good news? The brand has a summer sale where everything is 50% off with promo code FINAL50 at checkout. Who doesn’t love a promo code? I know I can’t get enough of saving and getting a really amazing deal. Brace yourself when you are traveling this time of year. 
You don’t have to go out of your mind looking for the perfect outfit. When you are relaxing on vacation you don’t need to overdo it. This is the time to be fresh-faced and just enjoy the cool breeze. To put a classic feature into perspective what better way then adding some Parisian glam with a white show off your shoulders shirt. Taking a classic and reworking it for a street style close up is magnificent. You can accessories white with some added colour and texture of prints. 
To me an urban city jumpsuit can be your best versatile item to own in your wardrobe. Why? Because a bold colour can transition from summer to fall in a matter of seconds. Plus, you can wear this item during the day for early lunch with the girls. Then turn around and wear it for a nice cocktail party with some flare. It is really beautiful and the fabric is so silky and soft to the touch. The best part is the free shipping on your order.
White is perfect for summer but it can also sing its way into fall. If you have a fear of spilling red wine or those chocolate covered biscuits on your lighter garment don’t fear. You only live once in life, so live day by day with joy and flourish in a ravishing cooler look. This white dress gives casual dressy to another level I am defiantly adding this to my list. 
Velvet is one of those fabrics people either smile at or feel it reminds them of an outfit from the theatre in the 1920s. For me, I adore this style it lights up the most casual attire and brings it to a dressier effect. 
Casual dressy tends to be my favourite way to dress ever since I was born to be honest. And being glamour’s is another fun excuse to buy another outfit, accessory, or even another pair of shoes. 

When you are shopping, you can purchase something that is lovely and get plenty of use out of it. Especially for the upcoming fall and winter season.  Check out the sale here*

What items from the new collection are your favourite? And will you be adding any to your wish list?

Can you believe its July already? Time really does fly by so quickly. One minute you are gearing up for the scorching weather change. The next, you see Fall creeping its way up with a pretty forecast. I don’t know about you. But I absolutely adore Winter clothing. Something about a nice coat, jumper, and those tall boots that have us craving for more. I am kind of relieved that summer is over. Not that I don’t enjoy it, I just prefer the Fall fashions especially, when being Parisian chic is in order.

To get us ready for Fall, I have for you a beautiful treat. The couture collections are in, and one designer in particular really caught my attention. By early evening, Alexandre Vauthier created a private club-type setting through which the models strutted by wearing thickly belted tailleurs, slinky crystal-studded dresses, and pheasant-feathered frocks. Think 80s femme fatale with an elegant touch. 

Celebrating Femininity 

Vauthier’s line showcased Parisian glamour, while shouting from the roof tops “We love celebrating femininity and every woman’s right to always be glamourous.” 

Women are strong and we have been through a lot in our lives, whether it is working hard for that next promotion or trying to just get through a workout routine without falling on our faces. 

One thing that this couture line has captivated is highlighting silky, bejewelled, and bright fabrics that really have our inner divas taking note. You can take a tailored silk jacket, or flowing mysterious classic dress and really work it into your wardrobe for a flashy result.  

         80s Vibe


Photo: Alexandre Vauthier Paris Couture Collection

Investment pieces are practical and in this collection, there was ample black trousers- a look that many French editors are adopting, the little black dresses delicately inlaid with lace, and also the close-cropped black jacket with its sharp white double collar and crystal-covered placket. 

On the spellbound end of the spectrum were gowns fully covered in tiger embroideries, a tiered dress that made you feel like Prince’s song hot thing, was about to scream from the loudspeakers. The look alone felt like a nod to a super chic 80s vibe that I honestly can’t get enough of. You don’t have to be born in the 80s, to appreciate the modern flavour the French designer is taking at mixing modernism with a hint of a flashback era. 

Practical Line

  Normally, when we take a look at a couture collection. Usually the show is over the top. Where you feel as if you couldn’t really wear this stuff in everyday life. Well in this case, that is totally wrong. One thing I noticed echoing from Alexandre’s collection, was the trendy pieces mixed in with a practical undertone. I know that feathers, or big bold statements can maybe seem a bit scary. But honesty, who are you a basic b****? If you are then please stay clear from reading this next sentence. 
Photo: Animal Pieces from Alexandre Vauthier 2019

The zesty yellow and animal prints with big accessories, actually played into the collection’s animalistic and stylish overtones. Making it perfect for a day to night look. Can you achieve this? Absolutely. Look at the animal print dresses. They have recently become very popular and you can wear them with casual pieces from your wardrobe. Try wearing them alone with some pretty accessories for daytime. Then switch it up by rocking a leather jacket, sleeves pushed up and a pair of striking heels for date night with someone special in your life.

Using your creative head can really do wonders. When you are trying to find something unique to try out. Best part is, these pieces are not just dressy but can be worn any time of day. And you can wear them in any weather condition. You only live once in life, why not be totally glamour’s.

Looking to step up your style game for summer? If so, there’s no better fashion set to take cues from than our favourite fashion city Paris, France. After all, is there any collective group that’s chicer? Parisians just have that effortless put together style that countless women wish to emulate. You don’t have to be a famous stylist to achieve such a glorified I woke up like this style. Another secret is you don’t have to spend loads of money to do this either. Can it really be done? Of course.

Most people get style inspiration, by coming through photos online to get that winning look. Sometimes, it can seem like a truly difficult challenge. But dressing ultra-chic! Doesn’t have to give you a headache. 

Here are 5 full proof ways to dress like a Parisian Muse.

           Comfort is key


When you are rushing around in the city, especially Paris. You really need to take care of your feet. And having the proper shoes that give you extra comfort can make all the difference in the world. It can make or break your attitude for your entire day. This is where leather ballet flats come in handy. These iconic shoes have been around for decades. And served as an inspiration from Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face, to every French girls staple. They not only serve as a wonderful comfort to your feet, they take your outfit to another level of pure elegance. 

                      The Perfect Jean


One thing about us fashion girls, is we love a classic denim jean. Whether you opt for boot cut or keep it perfectly skinny. There is a lovely style for just about anyone’s preference. The best part is, jeans can be so versatile. You can wear them casually with a blouse tucked in for a sleek look. Or turn around and dress them up for a cocktail party with some downtown flare.

          Biker Jacket


Thanks to Bridgette Bardot, the biker jacket has cemented its way into our hearts forever. And for good reason. When you put on this smooth, soft, buttery leather biker it has such an effortless feel, that instantly makes your entire outfit look super cool. Every French girl adores this look ever since the 1960’s and today, going strong. 

          V-Neck Blouse


I can’t think of anything more Parisian than a V-neck blouse. It happens to be one of my all-time favourite pieces in my own wardrobe. This blouse shows off your best features, by highlighting what true class is. And adds such a polished appearance to the most casual pair of jeans, to a night on the town attire. When you tuck in a V-neck it just instantly sets off your whole look.



                A Glamorous handbag


Every woman alive loves Chanel. I can’t think of a more classic and iconic French brand. French women love to be feminine and what better way then adding a bag on your shoulder with a beautiful chain. I myself am a sucker for chains and for good reason. They are so versatile with anything you wear and just scream glamour! You don’t have to spend a lot to own a fabulous bag with a chain. There are plenty of cheaper alternatives. However, grabbing a lovely Chanel for a lot less than retail value is a must see.

         Layering & Adding heels


Most people in the city walk a lot. And sometimes comfort can outweigh style. In this case, you can defiantly make an exception. A heel when worn right, can be picked up as chic perfection. And become the hottest thing in the entire block. Layer your clothing lightly since Europe and the U.K. has been having a major heat spell. It seems to be having mixed reactions but that is another story. Layering like you’re an expert, doesn’t have to be complicated. Adding a radiant heel can really add an extra layer of spunk into your casual outfit.

How would you dress like a Parisian Muse?

The old way of doing things has changed drastically. One minute you have a normal strap, the next it’s taken away and changed into something fabulous. Time and time again, customising has taken over the planet. There is something really exciting about creating an essential that is a work of art. You almost feel like your own designer without having to do a lot of busy work. Take Fendi, for example. This Italian house loves experimenting with the idea of something fresh and new.

When it comes to handbags, regular is boring. It seems the chain your vintage bag came with, is really not going to cut it. So, what does a stylish person do? They take it off and replace it with a leather strap for something completely different. If you don’t care for the original, swap it out for something out of the ordinary. There are really no set rules when it comes to customising something. You work with what you’re comfortable with. And sometimes, you can even get a bit bold and daring.

It isn’t just straps and chains off of bags, that are getting this treatment. Now, people are starting to get their designer bags and accessories, painted on with graffiti, or words, symbols, and pictures of things, or even adding colour here and there. This style shift isn’t really for the faint of heart, but the creative approach is fascinating from an artistic perspective.

Besides the obvious screaming “I am an individual” you can get your leather goods and even shoes to be moulded into priceless works of art. I know, it sounds silly, right? But have you ever seen a bag that is shinny with crystals all over, and a hand painted design that just screams summer? And all you can think is, that is so breathtakingly gorgeous I just have to own this. You can have this custom done and have your item look incredible. 
Photo: D&G Show 2018 
The only downside, it can be costly for something so customising if you are going to go all out that is. But in the end, it will still be beautiful and an amazing work of art that not everyone else has. It all depends on your own lifestyle and how you see the item fitting into your style. If you still love customising, you can get the hand painted look and fresh new styles for summer here. Check out some stylish looks for this season, so you don’t have to sacrifice money for incredible style.

When it comes to rock & roll in all layers, what really stands above the crowd has to be the free spirit. Having that ultimate vibe of non-stop adventure while losing yourself in the city, makes summer that more exciting. When it comes to style inspiration, it seems a lot of brands are gathering looks with retro influences and infusing them with a modern flavour. This seems to be a great way to bring back some old school favourites. 

Who knew that mixing 90’s trends with pure classics could really get our eyes popping. Don’t get me wrong, some 90s styles should stay hidden and never see the light of day again. While others, can be allowed to come out into the spotlight for some fun adventures. People look for summer to escape and just enjoy the change of season. Continue your soul of wonder getting lost in the city, with people and the night sky. Don’t be afraid to mix these styles into your amazing wardrobe.

You really can’t get any more classic then a nice leather jacket. This is every rocker’s staple and a truly versatile material. The best leather jackets can be found in many places. They are the ultimate jacket for looking super cool when you need to take your outfit up a notch. Not only does a key piece journey with you, looking good no matter what the trend climate may dictate, but the right one will get better with age.

Remember that the best leather jackets get softer-they retain their shape (although leather does stretch a little after the first few wears, so buy a snug size if you desire a close fit). Naturally, finding The One is hard-it’s a commitment. But it is well worth it when you can get your hands on a real gorgeous beauty. All Saints is the best brand when it comes to the most iconic leather jackets. Their new campaign for summer, has all the rocker vibes we crave for.
Today’s leather jackets are so much more than a line-up of black bikers (however, should a classic moto make your heart skip a beat, that’s entirely alright in my book). Whether you are the stud muffin who likes some edge, or a lover of an unusual colour, or sleek, there are many options to make you so happy.

Free Spirit This Summer: With Rockstar Influences

When it comes to rock & roll in all layers, what really stands above the crowd has to be the free spirit. Having that ultimate vibe of non-stop adventure while losing yourself in the city, makes summer that more exciting. When it comes to style inspiration, it seems a lot of brands are gathering looks with retro influences and infusing them with a modern flavour. This seems to be a great way to bring back some old school favourites. 

Who knew that mixing 90’s trends with pure classics could really get our eyes popping. Don’t get me wrong, some 90s styles should stay hidden and never see the light of day again. While others, can be allowed to come out into the spotlight for some fun adventures. People look for summer to escape and just enjoy the change of season. Continue your soul of wonder getting lost in the city, with people and the night sky. Don’t be afraid to mix these styles into your amazing wardrobe.

What does summer mean to you? The beginning of booking that needed holiday in Venice, capturing some breath-taking photos of floral and colour madness, being one step closer to freshen up your delightful outfit choices. To me, it signifies weather changes and high time to revamp the gorgeous wardrobe. I casually, turn on music with some much-needed soul, and carefully go through what doesn’t impress me anymore. You know that item you just had to have at one point or another? Well, for the season comes new change. And it is important to ditch what is old and bring in what is new. 

It is life or death, to make room for the first purchase of the summer: you guessed it, a bag! Whether it is a classic, that gets your heart racing, or a bold tone to showcase your impeccable style. A new bag can make all the difference in your summer outfit. 

It can make you feel like you are cleansing your soul, and bringing out another part of your awesome personality. Because we are all just to amazing, right? We all know the typical brands that scream our names, every time we pop into social media for a taste. Chanel, always a classic. Gucci, seems to be on trend at the moment. And of course, Hermes, which most people couldn’t give a kidney away to possess. 

But, what about those brands no one talks about that much? Don’t they deserve recognition and love to?  Take a step, in the right direction and check out these top 5 most underrated designer handbags. This just might make your start to summer that more electrifying.  

        Hot Child in The City


In June 2000, Ghesquiere introduced the First bag, which was fallowed, eighteen months later, by the City, the much-admired, zippered, top-handled tough-chic no nonsense bag for which style-setters went wild over. It was a fresh design, that stood out in a good way.

Not only is it perfect for travel, but it resembles a bad girl biker jacket in the shape of a bag. How cool is that? Till this day, it is still a popular style and really one of my favourite underrated bags. The City, comes in a variety of different leathers, colours, and sizes. You can find just the right one to suit your style.

      Oh, Oh Fendi 

In 1965, Karl Lagerfeld’s collaboration with Fendi began. The genius designer, wanted to create a more fun and youthful approach to the label to bring in a more playful attitude for consumers. Lagerfeld had a few much-needed tricks up his sleeve. He grabbed a piece of paper and designed the iconic Zucca, or Double F.

Even now, this retro style from Fendi has been popping up everywhere and still giving off a fun vibe. Besides the Zucca print, the brand has so many other chic styles to pick from.

Hubert de Givenchy was tall, elegant, and had the most beautiful hands. He could create the most delicate things. His kindness, to everyone and his generosity is what made this man a true legend of his craft. 

His label is not only legendary, but it packed a punch with some edgy and elegant pieces. His bags are always belle, and know how to work their way into anything you wear. 

   The Monogram for Days

Louis Vuitton has been around for decades, and has a variety of styles to pick from. What makes this French brand so appealing, has to stem from its history. But another obvious attraction has to be the retro appearance. When used often, your LV bag changes and becomes vintage and oh so chic to the eye.

It has that casual feel, without looking like a hot mess. The monogram is so noteworthy, you can see it from far away. This can either put you off, or make you wish to know more. If you are looking for a great hobo bag, or cross body, Mr Vuitton has you covered. 


        Classic Meets Futuristic with Dior


I know Dior tends to be considered a classic, much like Chanel. But it seems to be not as popular on the designer bag addiction scale. So, what made this name come up? It all started when Dior kept their classic bags and mixed it up with the Diorama bag. Not only is this bag really pretty, but it makes you feel elegant while still being really modern. The features give it this hard exterior while still looking ravishing. You can wear this bag while you’re out shopping, then turn around and rock it with a cocktail dress for a truly elegant dinner. If this style isn’t for you, Dior has so many other designs to get your handbag pallet satisfied. 

These underrated bags are so perfect for just about anyone’s style.
