Frette’s furnishings tend to transform the private residences and top hotels of the world into unforgettable aesthetic spaces. If there’s a ‘special effort’ kind of theme you’re going for on a cosy night in with yourself or a loved one, surrounding yourself with the brand’s prettiest little pieces makes for an excellent start.
They’ve furnished the Orient Express, after all. That’s good enough for even the most discerning blanket companion.
Outfit of The Week:
Luxury Colette pillow
Tosca Candle and Candle Holder
Prism Bed Tray (for champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and – if you’re me – gourmet burgers. Obvs.)
When the weather turns to ass, I choose to defeat any chance of Seasonal Affective Disorder by going mad with outfit planning. While coats are the obvious highlight of winter wardrobes, I put as much focus on accessories and small quirks to create creative looks. Though a peek of your midriff and calves may seem too sexy for the season, an oversized wool coat will keep you warm, chaste, and ever so chic.
Outfit of The Week:
Fifi flared skirt from Reiss
Lovisa pointed-toe pumps from Alexander Wang
Embossed crop top from Alexander McQueen
Mosaic Printed Crepe Wool Coat from Dolce & Gabbana
Gold and silver midi rings from River Island
Though the pink coat takeover shows no sign of slowing down, I prefer to wear my colour on my heels. Boots like these Duo knee-highs add the so-called ‘X Factor’ to monochromatic looks with the longevity that a coat can’t offer (how long do we wear our coats indoors, anyway?). The coat might as well be, well, invisible.

After running around a practically air con-free city in scorching temperatures all week, my blogger uniform has changed quite a bit. Heels, wedges, and boots have been swapped for flats and day-to-night dresses have been switched out for anything comfortable and breathable (as seen in this edition of Outfit of The Week). I am lusting over this camera bag like a teenage girl over the new GQ covers.

Seeing black on the red carpet is as predictable as seeing a hamburger in McDonalds. Though it may be the most universally flattering colour, the ‘wow factor’ that red carpet events call for usually goes amiss when donning the dark. Personally, I would prefer to see black used creatively on the red carpet; a) not head to toe and b) with a very small but very bright injection of colour. Someone call Jennifer Lawrence, I have some ideas…
Shop The Look:
High neck shift dress from MissesDressy
Neon snake hees from Kelsi Dagger
