The champagne is on chill and the cheeseboard is sorted and all that’s left for New Year’s preparation is styling a killer ensemble. Lately I find myself turning to the wardrobe classics for inspiration, like the LBD, or more specifically, the MBD – Modern Black Dress. SS21 is elevating the fashion staple with modern touches including peekaboo details and subtle fringing. As for me, I’m vibing anything with a dramatic sleeve and sheer finish, like this metallic skater dress from Pretty Little Thing. To style for NYE soiree, I’m reaching for a pair of strappy stilettos and teaming them with a luxe, statement earring, like these from EllaBelle.

How are you styling your MBD? I’d love to know in the comments below! x

Pretty Little Thing Boucle Puff Sleeve Blazer Dress, EllaBelle Monroe Bracelet and Mollie Earrings, Jo Mercer Heels (similar style here).

It’s been a mere moment since the stylish cast of the Gossip Girl reboot was debuted and already I’m deep into Netflix binge and channelling an outfit so remarkably Blair Waldorf style that there may as well be a monogrammed headband to match.

With a style defined as polished and preppy, I was instantly reminded of Queen B upon spying this Boucle Puff Sleeve Blazer Dress from Pretty Little Thing. It might not be Channel, but this little number has super cute detailing seen in the shimmer gold flicks through the boucle fabric and ornate, decorative buttons.

If there’s one thing I adore about B, it’s her regal taste in jewellery, from a statement Tiffany Key to her Harry Winston sparkler, her jewels were major. I’m elevating this look with a glam jewellery edit, courtesy of EllaBelle; a brand dedicated to embracing our most sparkly self. Her pieces are nothing short of exquisite and I’m hard pressed to determine a favourite out of these 1920’s vintage fan dangles versus this opulent crystal encrusted wrist wear.

Who was your Gossip Girl style icon? Are you set for the Gossip Girl reboot, or are you an OG fan? Let me know your stylish thoughts in the comments! xoxo

Lost in a dreamscape of 270,000 crystal pieces, showcased in Ai Weiwei’s Boomerang at QAGOMA. Flitting around the gallery, I’m styling a Pretty Little Thing ensemble, highlighting an effortless white tee with a snake printed midi skirt. The real hero of this outfit is bold statement made by these faux snake ankle boots, best teamed with a glimmer of delicate rose gold jewellery by Liberte.

Pretty Little Thing Red Floral Print Tiered Dress, Steve Madden Nectur Stiletto (similar style here), En Pointe Collective Loved Up Earrings.

Spring is in my stride with this floral flounce mini dress from Pretty Little Thing. If it wasn’t the vibrant floral print that has my heart racing, then it’s the flirty tiered ruffles that swish in the breeze. I could be dashing to brunch with the girls or meeting my beau for a romantic picnic, but either way this crimson number would serve as the perfect ensemble, best suited with a stiletto to match.

Finesse this fine #OOTD with lashings of luxe gold, like these statement earrings from my local go-to, En Pointe Collective. Voila, this bold gal is ready to seize the day with style and a little too much sass.
