Felicity dress by Reiss. Black dress perfection


On my wish list recently is this perfectly cut out black dress from Reiss. Another black dress but so different and makes you still stand out from the crowd. 

It is available from Reiss website, Harrods and John Lewis.

Day to evening look- white cardigan with black dress

Something that has been lacking in my wardrobe is a white cardigan that can transform a day look to an evening look in an instant. My pick is this Molly Bracken white cardigan from Zalando. It's perfect with a little black dress that is hidden underneath to be fully revealed in the evening.


It also comes in a white and navy version which appears more formal. 



The white cardigan is perfect on top of a black dress during the day to creat a ladylike day look and after your day activities you can remove the cardigan and enjoy the sexy black dress guilt free, no need to go back home and change for the evening. Perfect! Extra pearls optional as this cardigan is already quite dressy. ;-)

You can buy it here

Bag classics- Michael Kors Medium Patent Leather Selma


When it comes to classics, this bag is the ultimate day to evening bag, a new addition to my bag collection from Michael Kors. It's patent leather , medium size and has a shoulder strap as well. Perfect size for an everyday bag that can be taken out in the evening as well. I absolutely love it. To liven things up a bit I've added a pink fur key chain also from Michael Kors, I couldn't resist! 

It's available at MK stores and in Harrods of course from Michael Kors new collection. It also comes in a gorgeous red colour, very tempting. So much for resisting my Michael Kors addiction! 

Have a great Monday.

Jimmy Choo at the Berkeley



Sorry you have not heard from Shopaholic for a while. I have been very lucky to experience the Jimmy Choo afternoon tea at The Berkeley Hotel. Unfortunately this delight was only available for a couple of weeks so I thought I will make you all jealous and post it now ;-) 

The cakes were inspired by the shoes and bags designed by Jimmy Choo and they were absolutely delicious. Lots of champagne and tea has followed. A perfect afternoon! The only thing that could compete with that would be Christian Louboutin inspired cakes, I will keep you posted, that was a hint for The Berkeley team.

Here are some gorgeous photos from The Berkeley website







You can still experience the Pret-a-portea! Here

London essentials vs London weather

The famous London weather is very unpredictable and if you are not from London and planning to visit, here are some tips on what to take with you at all times.

Umbrella

Unfortunately you have to carry it with you all the times, you never know when you might need it.

Sunglasses

It sounds contradictory but you have to have them at all times as well, sun can come at out the most unexpected moment.

Scarf

It can get hot or cold in a matter of seconds so scarf will protect you from that in style.

Flat shoes

Running around in high heels and sight-seeing or shopping might be fun for a while but at some point your feet will need a rest so you should have a small pair of flats in your bag at all times.

Large glamorous bag

To carry all those things above you will need a large tote bag that's big enough to fit it all in and glamorous enough so you don't stand out from the London crowd. Your bag is your fashion statement. I would normally recommend a Michael Kors bag but here is a tip, everyone is wearing a Michael Kors bag (looks like MK has planned world domination) therefore if you want to be different any other bag would be great. I am guilty of indulging into MK bags as well so you see what I mean.

Oyster card

Travel card that will take you on buses and underground, you can't live without it.

iPhone

Or any other phone with interactive map. You will be lost. Many, many times.

7 day Keratin Smooth Tresemme. Product review


Hello Shopaholics

I was hoping to finally find a product that can really work on frizzy hair and make them smooth and I was very excited to hear about this one. Unfortunately 7 Day Keratin Smooth from Tresemme doesn't live up to the expectation. I have followed the instruction of application and styling (which is in itself very damaging for the hair) only to find out that the hair is back to its normal self (frizzy) just after one wash and looking even more frizzy than normal because of the damage that 3 times ironing each strand have done to it. So I'm afraid a bad review- it doesn't do 'what it says on the tin' - doesn't last 7 days even through washes. Still hoping for another product to arrive that can do the job.

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!
