pretty in patta - part III - fall/winter editorial

PATTA womens editiorial ace dia violette esmeralda fall winter 2014

following the success of the previous two #SSS patta ladies editorials, creatives ace dia and violette esmeralda follow up the now seasonal series with a third story, incorporating some of the patta fall collection releases - which some of is now available online and in select patta stockists.

the third editorial follows on from part II which can be seen here, and part I - here. working with a 'girls in streetwear' concept, the girls style up their favourite key pieces from the latest release in a fun and feminine way.

of all the editorials this one is my favourite by far, i love the colour contrasting backgrounds to the monochrome collection. the whole shoot has a really nice tomboy edge to it, but i love how it still looks super feminine. key pieces which i love are the black patta embroidered crew, patta running crew long-sleeve and of course the varsity jacket.

needless to say, i'm already looking forward to part IIII - keep up the brilliant work, girls!

F E L D T - S/S '15 capsule collection

feldt round neck tee (*)

last week i was sent a rather pleasing care package from new london brand, FELDT. my parcel contained a beautiful minimalistic black printed tote bag, photo card and branded t-shirt. a new brand to the london fashion scene, FELDT pride themselves on 'every day clothing for all seasons', utilising simplistic styling and pattern cutting, with a workwear edge.

the latest womenswear collection is light and feminine, with a really nice tomboy edge to it. loose fit striped tees are layered with overall style coats with turn ups, showing off the patterned or tonal lining - all finished with a pair of simplistic tennis court trainers.

my take home pieces from the collection are the oxford blue round collar shirt and the oversized shirt dress. although, the whole capsule collection is a dream - the way the brand have mixed staple uniform colours with the yellow pop, produces some exciting layering options. perfect for the autumn. 

the attention to detailing on each garment really is amazing, all beautifully finished with a branded FELDT tag to the pocket, neck or side seam. the brands debut collection launches next month, to keep up to date with all things FELDT follow the brands social pages - facebook, twitter, instagram & tumblr.

check out my highlights from the lookbook below.

lonely for you only - lonely hearts lingerie

lonely hearts label, lingerie, lonely hearts, asos, blogger, uk blogger, womens clothing, womens accsessories, victoria secret, lonely hearts label, lingerie, lonely hearts, asos, blogger, uk blogger, womens clothing, womens accsessories, victoria secret,

after what seems like years lusting over lonely hearts label lingerie sets, my wait finally came up trumps when i stumbled across the lulu set in baby blue in asos sale. i love the whole look of the brand, with really delicate branding and features and couldn't wait for my order to arrive. thankfully asos provided me with a super quick delivery time of 2 days and it fits like a complete dream!

i went for my usual size of 32DD and the bra really does fit perfectly, i'm usually a victorias secret girl and i'm always nervous of straying from what i know fits. the lulu has some extra strap detailing across the bust, which gives it a harness effect - another really pretty feature. this detail can also be adjusted, so the straps can be worn haltered or crossed. i also love the back with it being a slightly long-line bra, the fastenings give you a secure feel with 5 hook and eye closures. 

i also purchased the briefs for the set (left image), i was slightly less impressed with the style of these - but i'm unsure if thats due to them coming up a bit small, if your gifted in the hip department i'd advise to size up and i do wish the set came with french knickers!

check out the latest lonely lingerie range online now and check out the brands instagram to fall in love with the latest collections.
