Since so many of you loved my Hey June post, where I shared all the pretty things on my radar for the month, I thought I’d continue on with a little series and show you what’s currently on my wishlist this July…
Day Birger et Mikkelsen Entrench Coat
This is such a beautiful coat! As in a real, real stunner! A trench is an absolute wardrobe essential; a classic staple item that you can dress up or down, pairing it with a pretty dress, jeans, even shorts and the best part is that its a staple that you’ll find yourself reaching for summer, winter, autumn and spring!
The Entrench Coat by Day Birger et Mikkelsen is an absolute beauty! On the hanger it may look like just another gorgeous trench, but it has a beautiful detail that not only makes it special, but absolutely swoon worthy!
It’s got everything you’d expect from the perfect trench; made from cotton-twill fabric, it offers a slim silhouette with immaculate details and a beautiful flash of paisley across the interior shoulder.
But let me draw your attention to the zip through detailing, which gives this trench a truly unique styling ability! You can wear it buttoned up all the way, finished with its tie belt, or unzip the centre, release the back vent and viola, you’ve got a totally fabulous, relaxed and unique layering piece.
Find the Entrench Coat at the Day Birger et Mikkelsen store at Hyde Park Corner or Mall of Africa in Johannesburg, otherwise look out for it at the Day Birger et Mikkelsen store, opening soon at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
H&M Sequin Trousers
I don’t know why, but I’ve always wanted a pair of pretty, shiny, sparkly sequin trousers! It’s just one of those pieces that I think could work in so many ways, and now that I’ve spotted the perfect pair at H&M, I need!
I actually never got a chance to try them on, but I need to head back during the week and try them on.
TUMI Haydon Blackburn Duffle Bag
Lets just get something out of the way real quick! When it comes to travel and luggage, I’m obsessed with TUMI! I don’t know what it is about this brand, but their premium travel cases, bags and trolleys are just everything! Smart travel pieces to say the least!
They’ll be launching their new Autumn/ Winter 2016 collection in SA in September (in line with the worldwide launch) and I got a sneak peek at some of the beauties on offer. There’s a lot of lust worthy pieces, which I’ll share you with you guys in an upcoming post, but for now, how beautiful is this Blackburn Duffle Bag from the HAYDON collection?
It’s the perfect take-me-on-board duffle bag that looks sleek, stylish and so pretty! When you’re on holiday you can even use it as a beach bag or just an every day touring the city kinda bag.
It’s made from a tough, lightweight fabric, stylishly accented with leather trim and features a rear Add-a-Bag sleeve which you can slip over your travel trolley to roam the airports hands free.
YSL CAFTAN Fragrance
This fragrance is absolutely exquisite! It’s part of YSL’s very exclusive LE VESTIAIRE DES PARFUMS fragrance line, which literally translates to “Dressing Room Fragrances”, and includes five unique scents, each interpreting a centerpiece of the emblematic Yves Saint Laurent wardrobe.
I attended the pre-launch of the first YSL Beauty Boutique to open in the African continent last week, where I got to smell and indulge in these beautiful scents and let me tell you, deciding on a fave was not easy! In fact, I’m still not sure if CAFTAN is my favourite-favourite, because I was just as drawn to SAHARIENNE, TRENCH, CABAN and TUXEDO, so literally, all five!
The thing with CAFTAN is that it has got a deep sensual aroma with notes of Amber, Incense and Vanilla that I can almost never say no to! You gals know how much I love my spicy, vibrant scents (I’m still hooked on the YSL Original Collection) and CAFTAN, which is inspired by the vibrancy of Moroccan culture just spoke to my senses.
These fragrances are so beautiful and luxurious! If you’re around Sandton City, I would make a point to pop past the YSL Beauty Boutique (it’s situated on the upper level close to Stuttafords) and give them a touch, feel and little sniff! I promise, you’ll love one if not all!
Victoria Beckham Flat Top Visor
When I heard the news that Victoria Beckham Eyewear will be available in South Africa, hitting our shores in September, I was over the moon! Victoria Beckham has, and always will be, my ultimate style icon and you know that everything she puts her name to is always worthy of praise!
I just hope that when the collection launches in South Africa, that they’ll be bringing in the Flat Top Visor style. These sunnies are so bold, so beautiful and definitely a style essential! I need them in my life! Those beautiful, thick black and tortoiseshell frames would make such a statement and I love that they have black lenses. Need! Need! Need!
Statement sunnies to say the least!! Besides the Flat Top Visor (top left), I also have my eye on the Iconic Square (top right), the Fine Weave (bottom left) and the Layered Cat (bottom right) styles. Which one is your fave?
