Chambray and red

Chambray shirt

A chic chambray blouse is a great way to tone done a delicate lace piece such as this black skirt, both from Forever 21

Metal collar
If you're going to add accessories that make a statement, such as this cool metal collar from The Bay ...


Chambray and lace

and this killer Celine Nano, be sure they are small and structured. 

Black pointed toe pumps

Pairing this look with understated staples such as black stockings and black pointed-toe pumps (these are Jessica by Jessica Simpson) ensures the attention lands on the right pieces.   

Cool collar

Rhinestone collar

I love the versatility of this faux pearl and rhinestone collar necklace.

Worn with a cozy knit sweater, a billowy blouse or even a boatneck dress, it's a fun alternative to a statement necklace.

Biker chic

If leather leggings aren't in your future but you would still like a little more leather in your life, then a cool biker-chic jacket is the way to go.

Understated accessories such as an oversized men's Coach portfolio keeps the focus on the leather jacket.

Leather leggings

Theory leather leggings with Helmut Lang blazer, silk tank, Sperry booties and Fendi handbag


As much as I enjoy playing dress-up on my blog, a model I'm definitely not ... And this fact became glaringly obvious when I went shopping in search of a pair of great leather leggings. 

Theory leather leggings with Helmut Lang blazer, silk tank, Sperry booties and Fendi handbag

After trying on seemingly countless pairs, (most of which I resembled a stuffed sausage in) I settled upon this Theory pair. 



If, like me,  you're looking to jump into this bold leather trend, look for a pair that has a percentage of elastic in them - to help keep their shape and avoid the baggy butt and knee look.

Bold red

Pixel Suiting blazer Helmut Lang J Brand Prada
Certain designers have my style heart and soul, and Helmut Lang is definitely one of them. In recent months, I have been attempting to bulk up my closet with their crisp, clean-lined designs.

This new Pixel Suiting Blazer in a rich, almost-burgundy red combines the classic minimalists lines Helmut Lang is known -- and loved -- for, while incorporating accents of the hottest trend of the season: leather.

Go wild



Yves Saint Laurent leopard handbag Michael Kors

When it comes to leopard print, I'm firmly entrenched in the belief that it can be as neutral as black or white.

This timeless pattern looks great with pretty much every colour -- and whether it's a statement-making bag, cashmere scarf or to-die-for booties, animal print adds a certain  element of elegance to every outfit.

Warm & Fuzzy

Winter has definitely arrived.

I'm choosing to combat the chills with a fierce faux-fur trimmed vest from Forever 21, teal J Brand jeans, a luxe silk Equipment blouse, a Chanel Jumbo and black Christian Louboutin pumps.

Watch out ...

Michael Kors gold watch and rose gold Alden Rae wrap bracelet

My obsession with my Michael Kors watch is no secret. Scan through almost all of my previous posts and you're sure to see it pictured again and again.
But, my MK mainstay may have a bit of arm-candy competition from this amazing leather and rose gold wrap bracelet by Alden Rae.

Cool, classy and with just the right amount of biker-babe chic, it's an on-trend addition to any jewelry box.  (@ Privilege Boutique)
