OOTD • B&W

Hi everyone!

Lately, the weather has been super hot and sunny in Malta. So to spice things up, the weather decided to be cloudy and windy two weekends ago, how kind of him! And since it was a bit chilly, I opted to layer my outfit with the softest and cosiest garment I own. I got this jacket from DressLily - an affordable online clothing and accessory store. 

The product description on the DessLily website states that this jacket is made from Lycra, but I'm pretty sure that the material is fleecy-like. The hooded jacket, which is also available in grey and coffee, came with a thin leather-like belt, but I decided to not wear it. The only downside to this jacket is that it only comes in one size, but I would say it would still fit a wide range of sizes. 

The rest of my outfit consisted of a simple Raglan sleeve top teamed with a pair of black jeans. For the shoes, I opted to wear a pair of Tiberland look-alike boots I bought a couple of years ago from a local shop. To accessorise the outfit, I simply wore my current favourite ring - the Ganesha Elephant Amulet Ring by Dixi - as well as a thin silver knuckle ring, also from DressLily.

OOTD • Spring Florals

Hi everyone!

Regular readers of my blog will surely remember my latest Store Spotlight post, where I introduced you to an amazing online clothing store where everything is sold for just £5.00 - Just For 5 Pounds [read the post here]. I was lucky enough to receive a pretty floral dress from the lovely people at this store, and I couldn't not wear it immediately once I got it, even though the weather was quite cold on the day.

Perfect for the coming Spring/Summer season, this red dress has a floral pattern all over it, making it super fun and girly. To continue with the 'girly' theme of the dress, I accessorised with a dainty collar necklace and a stone ring. Partly due to the not-so-warm weather and partly due to wanting to toughen up this outfit, I layered the dress with my all-time-favourite leather jacket which I literally wear all the time, and finished off the look with a pair of black cut-out boots.

Dress: Just For £5 // Leather Jacket: ZARA // Cut-out Boots: MRP 
Collar Necklace: Dollface London // Stone Ring: Dollface London


What do you think of this outfit? How would you style this floral dress?

Aquascapism • Miista’s SS14 Lookbook

Hi everyone!

Miista’s SS14 lookbook is finally online! Entitled Aquascapism, the new SS14 collection is inspired by something big, ancient and fresh – the sea. Inspiration is also taken from 90s fashion and childhood summers: escaping back to the freedom of those long vacations as well as that feeling of not having a single care in the world.

The shoes in this collection are adorned with nostalgic sticker detailing, 3D floral elements, and wildly inventive, exaggerated textures, which complement the classic constructions and reinforce the spontaneity and youthfulness of the collection. Bright and breezy seaside colours accent the styles while a base of pastels provides foundation. Soft pinks and oranges along with oceanic blues and greens are combined with bright metallics in a range of candy coloured ice cream tones. And it does not end there! Neon vinyl enters the mix, setting the stage for some serious statement shoes. Miista’s most adventurous collection is also shiny - wooden heels encased in lucite, metallics combined with clear plastics, and speckled leather surrounded by a vinyl shell.

Photographed by Philip Meech and modelled by Jessie and Lydia, check out the lookbook photos below. All the styles in the ‘Aquascapism’ range are available for purchase at Miista.com.



What are your thoughts on this collection? Which is your favourite style?
I love all of these shoes, but my most favourite are the Zoe Aqua Marina and Parma Violets 
(surprise, surprise!) and the Jayda Black/Bronze. They're perfect in my eyes!

Bocca by Face-à-Face

Hi everyone!

After partnering with several of the most well regarded frame makers throughout Europe to provide the most luxurious of designs – including British designer Tom Davies, iconic Danish designer brands Lindberg and Ørgreen, as well as Nike - the world’s leading manufacturer of adaptive spectacle lenses Transitions has now teamed up with independent Parisian frames designer brand Face-à-Face for an edgy, unusual collaboration.

Together, Transitions and Face-à-Face have launched a new range of sunglasses styles called Bocca, inspired by the legendary Dali’s ‘Mae West’ sofa. To underline the sensual lips that became a frame front, Face-à-Face’s Art Director Pascal Jaulent sculpted the temples into very sexy legs, adorned with glamorous high heels. Other styles adorn the black varnish “Richelieu” shoe, paying tribute to the famous Yves Saint Laurent smoking suit.


What is interesting in the fact that Transitions Optical lenses change from light coloured lenses to dark coloured lenses according to sun's exposure. Check out the sunglasses which comprise the Bocca range below:

Bocca Rock 3 col. 2053 
Bocca 3 col. 321 / Bocca 4 col. 1216
Bocca 2 col. 2049
 Bocca Rock 2 col. 080 / Bocca Rock 1 col. 005
Bocca 1 col. 2016
