“People will stare. Make it worth their while.” — Harry Winston

August’s most wanted

Can you believe that August is already over? I spent half of the month travelling and another half trying to make up for the holiday time. This August, to me, was filled with long working days, lots of travelling and sightseeing, and even more shopping (mainly in fabulous NYC). It was definitely the busiest month so far. As much as I enjoyed the travelling I’m glad that all is back to normal so I can focus more energy on my blog and writing some great posts for you.

The theme of the month was Stripes and Ruffles and I hope you enjoyed it.

Here are the 10 things that caught your interest the most!

1. Aeryne Stripe Dress With Tie’s And Ruffle Sleeves

2. South Beach Stripe Ruffle & Bow Straw Bag

3. PRADA Minimal Baroque Round Sunglasses


4. Ted Baker Circle Lock Snake bag

The Ruffle Silhouette that Looks Good on Everyone, ruffle and pink stripes dress, pom pom sandals

5. Beci Stripe & Gingham Mix Ruffle Detail Dress

6. ASOS HOT TOPIC Pom Pom Heeled Sandals

7. Blue and silver starfish brooch it will be available soon my website. I’m a huge admirer of brooches and I have a sizeable collection myself. It’s pretty much impossible to see me without one pinched to my jacket or coat.  I’m so excited to share this timeless passion with you soon!

    I can’t believe myself that August is over already! I have to admit that majority of those pieces were my most favourites throughout the month! I have been contemplating getting that Aeryne dress and I think it’s time to finally make a decision and get it!! Thank you for sharing
