I’m pretty sure this coat isn’t available anymore as it’s from 2012, but it’s so gorgeous I had to share it anyway. I love everything about it and its subtle berry shade is to die for. Love or hate Burberry’s classic tartan print, there’s one thing you can’t take away from the British brand – its coats and trenches are quite simply the best. I’m sure this one looks even better in person. I once had the pleasure of meeting a stunning full-length white leather Burberry trench and I could not get over how it was perfect in every single way, from the stitching details down to the incredible soft suppleness of the leather.

With the party season just around the corner, all the high-street stores are filling up with gorgeous dresses in every shape and colour – it’s going to be hard to choose! This embellished colourblock dress by Monsoon s my favourite so far. Original, sophisticated, feminine…I just wish it was in my budget range.

I saw this dress the other day in Debenhams and was instantly drawn to it. It’s a fairly classic cut, but its print and colour palette are quite original. Soft and feminine, yet perfect for the workplace, it’s a must have if you like to stand out from the rows of black-suit-white-shirt drones. It’s also a dress that will easily wear out of the office—I can picture myself teaming it with light grey flats and cardigan for a spot of Sunday brunch.
I must stress that the above picture does not do justice to this piece and it is definitely worth checking out in person. The below image gives you a better idea of the print:

Accessorize has just come out with these cute patent peep toe pumps which reminded me of Vivienne Westwood’s Melissa Lady Dragon PVC peep toe shoes. These two models are both shiny, both decorated with an appliqué black heart and of course, both peep-toe. One is flat and turquoise, the other is lilac and heeled. One is £22 and the other is £88. Make your choice!

If you buy one thing this payday, make it this gorgeous dress by Karen Millen. It’s currently priced at £110 down from £165, so make sure you get it before the sale ends!
I love everything about it. The intricate pleating is absolutely amazing. The cut is very flattering, and quite sexy without even revealing too much. Not to mention the stunning colours. If anything, I’m going to have a hard time choosing between the bold blue and the vibrant purple! For those of you on the hunt for your next LBD, it also comes in black.
