As much as I love some glitz and glam, paired down black goes a long way. Think black and shiny and unleash your inner bad girl.

I really don’t wear too much jewelry – a watch and studs pretty much covers it on any given day, but I have been seriously lusting after Repossi’s new collection, featuring a much sought-after ear cuff. The minimalist designs coupled with the unexpected pieces create some serious wow factor, and really elevate the most basic of outfits.
Will I splash the cash? No, probably not, but a girl can dream …
With the rise in popularity of the smoking slipper, I have sat and ahhhhed and oooohhhhhhed over various offerings from designers: Miu Miu’s velvet and crystal offerings were considered, as were Christian Louboutin with the crazy fun plaid and studs, but these Valentinos just wouldn’t get out of my head. And so, my first shoes of 2013 were purchased. Despite looking like a dainty slipper, they are surpringly solid – leather under lace, sprinkled with teeny-tiny black caviar sparkles which glint in the light.
They feel supremely grown-up, and are a change from my wardrobe of ballerinas. Low-key, with no discernible logos, I can’t wait to wear these with J.Crew Minnie pants and a black cashmere sweater. We have just booked up Spring Break – so they will remain in tissue until then, where I will skip around East Hampton with my lady-shoes on.

It’s a pretty grey Tuesday, so what better way to brighten up than with some serious jewels. Neon and over-sized crystals can update any outfit.

Leopard print is something which has slowly sneaked its way into my wardrobe, and it’s an easy way of adding a ‘pop’ to an otherwise dull day.
