Bernice

 Ana Maddock- Bernice-Chi Chi LondonWe're finally at the high point of wedding season, and as much as I'd like to rely on that little black dress, there are only so many occasions you can go to before you get to a themed wedding, or a formal event. I teamed up with Chi Chi London (www.ChiChiClothing.com) to show you a dress that would be appropriate for the day or night time.

I was fortunate enough to come across the 'Bernice' dress by Chi Chi London, and thought it was jaw droppingly beautiful, and oh-so-easy to wear. In march, I made a post about some of the things that I'm looking for in a dress, and mentioned my love for an inky hue at a wedding. If there are any brides out there looking for some bridesmaid dresses, I would recommend this one as it is so pretty, or keeping in the same vein with the Amara, Saskia (available in curve), Tamar (available in curve), Gem, or Lunar dress.

Stay Sunny Chicago


Starting the summer with some overcast skies, and some raw white denim. Stay Sunny Chicago has this amazing frayed denim wrap-top, which is amazing on its own, or over some layers as a vest. I'm currently loving the Stay Sunny minimal-with-a-twist aesthetic. There's something rebellious about the frayed edges on a clean-cut wrap top, tying knots in an off the shoulder spaghetti strap silk blouse (the Samantha top),  a knotted strap on an asymmetric ruffled top (the wild top), or even the cracked pattern on a deep v-back floaty dress (the cracked dress)

Burberry trench, Stay Sunny Chicago wrap top, Isabel Marant jeans and boots, Michael Kors bag.
I threw the wrap-top on as soon as it arrived, and styled it with some matching skinny jeans from Isabel Marant, and a classic Burberry trench. I'm an irregular size so I'll probably alter it so that it fits my torso as opposed to having it double up above my waist. It's so versatile, I like it over a sheer black tank top, or with a bare chest. (As pictured)

Storm London 'Trexon' watch, Maison Martin Margiela x H&M keyring bracelet, Chopard necklace and earrings.
I paired the top with a Mini Trexon watch by Storm London. (Available from www.stormwatches.com) All-white outfit aside, I'm someone who dresses for functionality, and this mindset is definitely applied when it comes to accessories and timepieces.

In my experience, durable fabrics such as leather bands, or metal bracelets make for the best everyday watches. Besides, I needed a little silver in my life, and a little weighty, boyfriend style piece is an essential when it comes to durability. The Mini Trexon is available in silver, gold, with dials in blue, green, and purple.

Pink Molécule 090.09


Pink Molécule 090.09 is the fresh fragrance created by Denmark's sole practising perfumer Zarko Pavlov. The "090.09" refers to the length of time it took Pavlov nine months and nine days to make. Pink Molécule encapsulates the essence of femininity, capturing both the sweet and the sensual, and like pink champagne.

Topnotes: ELDERFLOWER, APRICOT, BLACK ORCHID, PINK MOLECULES
Basenotes: MAHOGANY, CREAM ACCORD, BLACK WOOD ACCORD

Zarko Perfume Pink Molécule 090.09 (Available at Space NK)
For those paying attention, you'll notice that there are no heart notes. The fragrance is described as 'almost mineralic', and quickly evolves from the sweet topnotes to the Nordic elements. And because it's the main thing we get asked: it lasts around ten hours from experience, and up to twenty-four with reapplication. Those familiar with Zarko Perfume will already know the fragrances created are famous for constantly adapting to the body and different temperatures. This gives the wearer a unique fragrance, with the composition of the active molecule reacting to its surroundings.

Laura Ashley blouse, Kaytie Wu weave disk bracelet, Chopard earrings.
For jewellery, I chose a brushed silver and gold bracelet by Kaytie Wu. I love wearing a matte gold and rose gold in the winter time, and come the summer, I like to wear a matte silver look to contrast a deep tan. (Kaytie Wu weave look bracelet available at www.kaytiewu.com)

Waking up with Kaytie Wu


We've been running from event to event during the last week, and so we haven't had time to actually shoot a look. However, I hope you enjoy this little insight of the simple morning ritual of getting ready, and putting jewellery on in the morning.

Kaytie Wu Swarovski geometric bracelets, Tiffany studs, Next beaded tee, Hellessy leather trousers.
Yesterday morning was manic as we practically sprinted around the city for various previews and a first look at some Resort 17 collections. I decided to keep my own look casual with an oversized tee and my go-to Hellessy leather trousers. For jewellery I went to Kaytie Wu, who -if you're a regular reader will already know- is one of my favourite examples of British minimalism.

Her debut collection was based around geometry, and the Swarovski elements added to these pieces really make each one a stand-out piece. You can get my rose gold bar bracelet and silver circle bracelet at www.kaytiewu.com

We have so many things to show you, unfortunately, you're just going to have to wait and see...

London Collections Men SS17

 Ana Maddock- London Collections Men SS17

Let's all welcome today as the last day of London Collections Men. Sometimes all you want to do is lay down after a long weekend of running around and constant show hopping. I apologise for my lack of outfit posts during this time, but to be honest, has any woman ever really done LCM justice?

Vintage motorcycle jacket, Reiss blouse. 
Now in it's fourth year, this weekend hosted over one hundred designers showcasing their SS17 collections. Yesterday's highlight, as always was the KTZ show. The SS17 collection drew inspiration from dystopian science fiction while bringing through some of the romanticism of celestial maps. Their signature black and white prints reigned supreme, appearing on their summer short suits, and topped with chained harnesses for a good measure of fetishism. Their press release says KTZ’s new season ‘looks to the future and oozes confidence and adventure’. Pejoski, teased the crowd with embellished masks and playful masculine silhouettes as they explored new fantasies at Pulse.

UPDATE 24/06/16 Now featuring video footage from KTZ's Official Youtube channel:

Homebound

 Ana Maddock- Talking Tables- Homebound
Ana Maddock- Talking Tables- Homebound One of my favourite things to do as soon as I get back is to go back home to see my family. I grew up in Kent and try to never stray too far from it. So we made our way down to the train station and hopped on the train for just under an hour before we got down to the Medway towns.
 Ana Maddock- Talking Tables- Homebound
First look: Reiss blouse, Tous necklace, Choked by a Thread choker, Primark hat, Tiffany earrings.
Second look: Zara blouse, Sekonda watch (available from www.houseofwatches.co.uk), jewellery as before.
Come the summer, my parents pride themselves on making the best barbecues, the only catch is that the dude and I have to set it up. Since my mum is such a beach babe, and we've been spending a lot of time in Greece, I thought it was only appropriate to get as much of a coastal setting in as we possibly could in such a green garden.  Ana Maddock- Talking Tables- Homebound

John Lewis tablecloth, vintage gold and brass bells, Talking Tables 'Coastal' decorations- available at (www.talkingtables.co.uk)
Aren't these festoon lights everything? Fen and I freaked out as soon as we saw them- with hindsight it was mostly if not solely me cooing over them, but we're both very much into the whole beach living, tranquil lifestyle. We've been looking at Talking Tables (www.talkingtables.co.uk) for a lot of our decorations.

You can see we love their Coastal range- you can shop the range here! and we're also looking at their Carnival Fiesta range for the games in Rio, and Modern Metallics range for some upcoming house warming parties.

London's Calling

 Ana Maddock- London's Calling
I made a quick stop back to London this weekend and couldn't believe the weather difference those three hours flying made. As someone who gets cold while flying, I bundled up in my favourite cable knit hat from BKLYN- whom you might remember from this post. It's from the AW16/17 collection, which will be coming soon to www.bklyn.co.uk so be sure to keep an eye on their website and follow them on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, for any updates.

In true London fashion, the beanie was swapped out for a hat as soon as the sun came out, and the day started to heat up. I also made the brave choice of going out without a jacket on and made my way over to my parents' house in Kent for our first barbecue of the year.

Sekonda watch- available at www.houseofwatches.co.uk
I've been wearing this pretty, blue Sekonda watch which has just gone on sale at www.houseofwatches.co.uk, along with the matching men's chronograph version which is perfect for the special man in your life, or even just in time for a last minute Father's Day version. (It's on June 19th, you're welcome!)

Reiss button front blouse, Guess jeans, Ted Baker flats, Primark hat, Louis Vuitton bag.

Tous necklace, Choked by a Thread choker, Tiffany earrings, Prada sunglasses.
