When it comes to accessories, I'm quite the minimalist. My rule is : they shouldn't overshadow your outfit, they should compliment it. An accessory is an addition to pull your look together & chicly amplify it.

Follow my Style Notes & get inspired to incorporate some stand-out pieces!



Mix Metals

I love this mix of textures from the Chanel Cashmere knit shell top, to the muted Gold Prada leather skirt. The perfect pairing to pull this look together would be Paco Rabanne's Disc & Metal bag. It really compliments the tones & adds some extra pizazz to the outfit. For an added touch, pair with Asos' 'High In The Sky Heels'.

Choose Timeless

From the silk chiffon draping, to the sheer, bare back - this incredible James Galanos Gown is really a must have. For accessories, choose timeless - like the Versace Gold & White Medusa Medallion Chain Necklace. To finish the look: add the perfect Crimson pout, like Tom Ford's lip colour in Ruby Rush.

Scarf It

2015 was really the year for neckscarves. From Saint Laurent to Gucci, we saw them used as a finishing touch to really elevate some exceptional catwalk looks. My current obsession: Shrimpton's rare Dolce & Gabbanna Alta Moda scarf. Pair with the perfect little black v-neck by Azzedine Alaia, &  Aritzia's high rise- cropped flare denim. Finish the look with the nude Courreges Jacket & studded Zara booties.
