On the theme of star-crossed lovers, there are some things that are just meant to be together. And yesterday, a few things came together to create the loveliness that is cobalt blue and leopard…
Last week, Fiorelli Bags invited me to take part in a LFW style round-up (Wednesday 19th – check out #LFWhang to see what’s happening so far!) and they very kindly took me on a little shopping spree yesterday in House of Fraser along with the gorgeous Emma Hill from EJ Style. I’d already spotted the brilliantly priced cobalt & black Harper and when it turned out it was the one they’d chosen for me, I was delighted. A little bit of serendipitous excellence!
Now, the leopard slip-ons by Ash. Getting another pair of slip-on sneakers has been high on my list ever since I sold my black pony-hair Zara ones (I’m in-between sizes at Zara, sob!) and especially since the little Twitter blogger storm about the new Steve Madden styles shown at The Apartment last month. Just this weekend, I was perusing Shopbop and about to click buy on these babies – loving the thicker sole – when I noticed they don’t ship this style outside of the US (American readers click here to buy!). Mini meltdown ensued.
So when I saw them in House of Fraser’s shoe department, I nearly fell over to get to them. And thus these lovers, cobalt blue and leopard, are finally united – just as they should be. You’ll probably be seeing a lot of this red hot combo over the next week or so, as they’ll be nice and eye-catching for LFW, I reckon.
I should also mention the stacking rings I’m piling up on. The rose gold middle ring (I got quite a surprise when I clicked on this link yesterday!) is by Anna Lou of London, for whom I am one of their new gang of blogger brand ambassadors – read up on all the other ladies on the Anna Lou blog. Also, did you see Harpers Bazaar’s new fashion week emojis app? Brilliant!
What do you think of the look? Do you like the cobalt blue & leopard combo?
