Stylish scandis

As I sat down for my first show of the season, in Stockholm, I struck me that besides creating a bread of human beings so pleasing to look at they have tread every runway and populated the pages of the world's best editorials in the business, the scandinavians are also killer at styling. In fact, I will even go so far as to say that there lies the main reason I can't bring myself to skip the scandi-fashtivities; and this despite a ridiculous schedule of back-to-back traveling this month and less than favourable weather conditions on location.

A missed flight, eight hours in Gatwick and a bottle red wine later, I made it into the city just in time to catch a few favourite shows.

Filippa K stood out with its now familiar take on wardrobe classics served with a twist. I loved the cognac leather hues and 70s high-waist denim in particular, and can't wait to get my hands on the tailored outerwear. Next up, Copenhagen.

Blue suede shoes

Call me crazy... but I can't help think that these in your-face sexy lace-ups would do nicely to jazz up my paired down shoe repertoire. Perfect with an A-line denim mini a la modern day 60s.

COTR for Topshop

Can I get you an order of bling to go with your coffee?

 I'll step away for a sec; leave you with the menu to give you a chance to think that one through. I'm hoping that what's on offer tickles your fancy.

For look how the gold shines bright, in perfect contrast to that unassuming (yet carefully selected) wooden table that serves as a backdrop to your morning insta-ritual. See how those bangles bestow just the right amount of wrist action, so as to elevatebut never distractfrom for that carefully curated #fromwhereIstand shot you like to take everyday. Notice how the thin orbit torque sits perfectly over your favourite pendant when gently fastened on your collar bone. Consider how terrific your pinky will feel when you finally crown him king of the fingers.

Think hard. 

Don't wait until it's all gone.

I can see you trying to catch my attention there.

Can I get you something?

All pieces are part of the jewellery line I designed for Freedom Found at Topshop
