Lust Have: Carine Gilson Lace Mask

I have developed a bit of an obsession recently with beautiful, intricate Gagaesque lace masks and this one by Carine Gilson exclusive to Net a Porter ticks all the boxes for me. I could quite happily wear this to a party this holiday season even if it is not a technically what you would call a masquerade ball.

Blue Hues

I am loving all the shades of blue we are seeing on the streets at the moment, every shade from royal to navy, turquoise to Sapphire, denim to indigo have been seen on bags, shoes, jackets and nails. My favourite way to wear is with a pop of this fabulous hue on a simple clutch bag a la Celine.

Style Crush: Elin Kling

My Style Crush this month is the very stylish Swedish blogger Elin Kling. I have to admit I have only just discovered what her name is, so, this is why I have now decided to dedicate a post to her flawless style. This is one lady who can make the most basic of pieces look uber sophisticated and modern. I am loving the way she teams a pair of straight legged tailored pants with an oversized men's sweater and still manages to look feminine. This is one fashionista I will be watching in the future as I am sure we are going to be seeing a lot more of her.
