VIKA GAZINSKAYA – Heart-print Cotton T-shirt
Red card motifs on a classic white t-shirt. This cute piece features a patch pocket and nice heart prints. Bring a playful note to a casual outfit and match it with jeans and a pair of stylish trainers.

CAPE COBRA – Python and Ostrich Wristlet
Cape Cobra is one of my latest luxurious leather quasi bespoke accessories finds. All their bags can be customised to suit your taste, choose your favourite colour and skin for a truly bespoke piece. I have picked this python and ostrich wristlet, which has a zip closure and an intriguing touch of colour. You can change the colour to any of your favourite one.

DOLCE & GABBANA – Pink Slim-leg Lace Trousers
I love these pink lace trousers! They are feminine and playful and will add a special touch to any style. Tailored to a slim-leg silhouette, they’re crafted from delicate floral lace and finished with elegant scalloped eyelash cuffs for a sophisticated touch. Match them with neutral shoes and a classic blouse.

MALONE SOULIERS – Maureen Charcoal Leather Mules
These Malone Souliers handmade charcoal mules come with a pointed toe and black leather straps. They are perfect when you need the right combination of comfort and style. Wear with tailored trousers for a casual off-duty look, or match with a floaty dress to enhance your romantic side.

BALMAIN – Long Sleeve Jumpsuit
I love this jumpsuit as much as I loved Balmain’s blazer from the same collection. Framed with a wrap-around bodice and peak lapels to emulate a double-breasted cut, it is both feminine and masculine at the same time. The signature gold-tone buttons that embellish the front add to this iconic contrast. Wear with high heels and a statement clutch to highlight the sophisticated design.

MONSE – Printed Satin Shirt Dress
This printed shirt dress is effortlessly chic. It has split sides and it is crafted from super soft viscose. Pair with heels, belt and chunky jewellery like CB Jewellery, for an opening exhibition evening out.

CLARISSA BRONFMAN – La Dolce Vita Necklace
14 karat gold with silver, amethyst stone with brilliant cut diamond details.
Jewellery is one of my favourite parts of the styling process and I am a big fan of Clarissa Bronfman and her exquisite works of art. They are chic with a boho touch and they will add a spiritual feeling to your outfit. I picked La Dolce Vita necklace, but there are so many different ones to choose from.
