Jeanswest Aztec Print Belted Dress, Alexander Wang Rocco Bag | Sass and Bide Tank, Warehouse Jacket, Skinny Jeans, Balenciaga Magenta Work

Here's what I wore to work on Thursday:
Dress: Jeanswest Aztec print dress
Belt: gifted Cotton On tan waist belt
Shoes: Wittner 'Columbia' cross strap sandals in tan
Bracelets: the usual plus Indigo Rose Design waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet and gifted Ferragamo double wrap bracelet
BagAlexander Wang Rocco with gold hardware in dark argon from Reebonz


I really like wearing this greeny-blue Rocco bag with blue clothes! Have been wanting to pair it with this dress for a little while, one of my favourite dresses. I like the fact that it pairs so well with black, brown or tan accessories.


Last worn: aztec print dress, belt, tan sandals, Alexander Wang Rocco.

Here's what I wore for casual Friday today:
Jacket: Warehouse cropped zip detail jacket (New purchase)
NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey
Bracelets: the usual
Top: Sass and Bide 'Musical Genius' tank
Jeans: Cotton On black skinny jeans
Shoes: Wittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagBalenciaga RH work in 2005 Magenta


A while back I won a blog competition on What Would Karl Do, and I got a warehouse voucher. I used it recently in the Warehouse sale to buy a skirt, jumper and this jacket. So I'm not sure how to mark the purchase on my blog as I bought it, but only with the voucher I won. It's not gifted and it's not C/O so do I just say "purchased with competition prize gift voucher" every time? If you know the blog rules help me out :)

The jacket is really warm - I ended up taking it off in the office. Maybe because jackets need to be thicker in the UK as it's so cold? Will be nice as the weather starts to cool here.


Last worn: neon tank, skinny jeans, studded sandals, Balenciaga magenta work.

  1. Both looks are really cute! I don't know how you'd describe those items on your blog. I guess you could just say competition won? I have no idea! Maybe someone else will come up with a better idea!
    Hope you have a lovely weekend. xx

  23. This post alone makes me realize that you my dear, are a bag-lady. I used to have a wide collection that would be chosen and matched wisely with my clothes, but for the past couple of years I have totally turned into the "one bag a season" person. Adoring your first bag!

    1. hehe yes you guessed right, I am definitely a bag lady! I like to swap bags often to give a little bit of variety, but have been known to carry some bags for months on end when they arrive! You want to get lots of wear out of them when you save so long for them! :)

  24. I love all of your bags... They're so cute, and you have a great fashion taste dear!
    If you don't mind, you may check out my last outfit photo, 'Blue&Grey'! It would mean a lot! :) and would you like to follow each other? Let me know.

  25. Mica! I love to read your blog. Everytime I find myself salivating at your bag collection. You have an ability to find the most incredible pieces, so this is a message from me to say, keep doing what you're doing! I love the bag-inspiration as I'm often left wondering, maybe I have enough bags; your blog always reminds me, there's always room for more!

  28. Funny thing, last week I saw a necklace just like yours but not from the House of Harlow, and thought to myself, I have seen this on someone... that someone is you !
