Michael Kors - studded leather clutch

I can't help but love this Michael Kors clutch that emerged on Outnet. It comes in a totally golden version as well and also off-white. See it here. I am trying to stay off Michael Kors but I just can't seem to manage.

Pearl necklaces

How to wear pearls? Recently I have noticed a few pearl necklaces that have caught my attention. A very grande, statement necklaces not just a measly string of pearls! No offence to my Tiffany's string of pearls! These ones are so amazing that will 'make' the entire outfit. Perfect with a simple black dress for the evening or a simple white shirt for a day time business meeting. Or even putting it on after a business meeting for an evening date to add more drama and glamour to the outfit. Something a simple string of pearls can't do!

Pink perfection

Another pair of shoes? why not if they are pink. It's my birthday soon so I thought I would drop a big hint. It's spring and I want everything in pink. Here are the gorgeous pink Kurt Geiger suede Bailey courts. I will wear them with everything ;-) From Harrods

Save a dress, bag and a shoe!

Spring is here so time for some spring clean in my wardrobe! I have just ordered a massive shopping online and planning to do some more spring shopping today therefore also planning to make some room for the new arrivals. One of the greatest ideas I recently discovered is that many bloggers have an online store attached to their blog where you can buy some pre-loved items they are not wearing anymore, I think it's brilliant. One women's trash is another woman's treasure! Please post a link in comments below and let's share some clothes love. 
Here is mine - click here- Shopaholic . I will be adding more items soon so watch this space.

If you don't have your own online store yet, you can create one in seconds at Tictail. It's the easiest thing in the world and like the best things in life it's free too. Click here- Tictail. I think it's a genius idea. Save your dresses, bags and shoes from a sad life in a dark corner of your closet! ;-)

Versailles at Donmar Warehouse

(photo FT.com)

This month I would like to recommend you to see Versailles at Donmar theatre in London ( click here ). I will not attempt to be a theatre critic , I can only say the play is excellent and I enjoyed it thoroughly. 

My first time at Domar (aka The Best Theatre In The World) has left me wanting to see more plays there. If you are a huge theatre fan it doesn't get better than this. You have been warned! 
Versailles is a play that requires a bit of historical knowledge, some called it 'lecturing but not patronising' but I call it interesting and keeping you on the edge of your seat'. The play is multilayered with complex characters, all of them unique in their own way and interesting. I must say sitting in the first row helps a lot to enjoy the play more, some will disagree but this is my personal opinion. The play leaves you with this cathartic feeling that you want to experience in theatre, a sign of a good play and makes you think about it long afterwards, another sign. I cannot recommend more seeing this play and if is the only one play you will see this month or year, this one will be very memorable. I have managed not to divulge any details about what happens in the play (I always like not to know anything before seeing it) but if you want to find out more about it click here and here

Enjoy!

Bright pink things!


Dreaming about bright pink things! I have been dreaming about this Mulberry Willow tote for a while and now it came out in pink for the spring (all rhymes are deliberate ;-)  . It has a detachable front pocket to be used as a clutch for an evening out. In the perfect world I'd have two , one in black one in pink! Click here

 Another pink beauty is this Saint Laurent Sac de Jour in fuchsia. It is a very elegant and shiny, with a detachable strap. Difficult choice between the two. Mulberry is more practical but SL is more beautiful.. Hmm... Click here
Last but not least is Selma by Michael Kors in purple, it is my final choice, this one is a budget beauty, 'she' will not intimidate your friends or scare your man! ;-) Click here

What to see in the theatre - Ghosts, Henry V, King Lear

If you are wondering what to see in theatre this season, here are some suggestions pf plays that I have seen recently. 

Ghosts by Ibsen. Trafalgar Studios
Fantastic play that will keep you on the edge of your seat through the entire performance. Brilliant acting and very powerful cathartic experience. If you have never heard about this play before, just book it and don't read anything about it, let it be a surprise. You will not regret it. 
Book here 

Henry V.  Noel Coward Theatre
You might be stil lucky to get some tickets here. One of the attractions of the play is Jude Law who is a great actor and is fantastic in this play, I really enjoyed it however I suggest you read a bit before you see it if you are not a Shakespeare aficionado.  




King Lear. National Theatre.
It is now sold out but you might get tickets on other resale websites. Fantastic and memorable performance, Simon Russell Beale was born to play King Lear. 
You can still catch it in the cinema live streaming in May , click here

Black beauties

I decided not to buy any more black dresses and in general reduce wearing black as I think it is too boring but there it is, another black dress fascination, this Alexander McQueen Jewel Collar Cut Out Dress. This is a perfect black dress.



Another one, called Wedding Dress from Pinko. I am not sure why it is called like that but I want it too to join my vast black dresses collection.


Moving on to shoes, thinking forward about summer, these beauties are perfect. 

I discovered I love everything black from Saint Laurent.

Especially these...


Or maybe these also






Another perfect black beauty is this Saint Laurent tassel clutch or the perfect day-to-night bag, Mulberry Willow with built in clutch that you can zip out for the evening. 





So much for not buying anything black anymore. :-)
