"You either know fashion or you don't."
- Anna Wintour

Firstly, the reason for the name 'Italiana'... because the look reminds me of Italian fashion giant Versace and I first wore this shirt on my holiday to Italy in September. I finally decided to post my favourite shirt on the blog after months of raving on and on about it. I kept to black and gold, pairing the shirt with a full midi length skirt and simple ankle strap sandals. I brought together the look with a gold belt and clutch and these diva style cat eye sunglasses. My Anna Dello Russo for H&M wrist candy made for the perfect finishing touches.

Claret and Camel

"I like being a woman, even in a man's world. After all, men can't wear dresses, but we can wear the pants."
- Whitney Houston

I really love teaming unusual colour combos and think that camel and claret look great together, very autumnal. I decided to keep the look smart casual, teaming these tailored trousers with this smart wool coat and v-neck jumper. I finished off the look with my new Michael Kors claret bag, simple jewellery and hints of my favourite...leopard print.

PICK OF THE WEEK: Shoe Boots (Julien McDonald for Matalan)

Every once in a while I visit the Matalan website to check out who their latest collaboration is with. In the past they've collaborated with Abbey Clancy, Philip Armstrong and others... producing sell out pieces; I wore Philip Armstrong leopard print heels in my post, All in One (view here). Today I spotted these beauties by Julien McDonald. They're definitely my coup of tea, I can see myself wearing a nautical ensemble with the red and gold heels. To get your hands on these beauties (only £35!!) and to view the rest of the Julien McDonald for Matalan collection visit the website at

Happy Shopping!

Styling: 70s Monochrome

For her final look, I decided to give Nikki a 70s twist; floppy felt hat (one of my favourite accessories of all time!!!), knee high boots and flowing layers. I kept the palette mute with monochrome and finished off the look with gold costume jewellery.

Styling: Cobalt Blue

For her third outfit I decided to give Nikki a smart look. I hate the boring tones of grey and black that flood the office floor, so I decided to brighten things up a little with the tailored blazer jacket from Forever 21. I gave the outfit a bit of glamour with these sexy killer high heels, also from Forever 21, finishing off the look with gold costume jewellery and a structured black handbag. Nikki certainly looks the business.

Styling: Smart Casual

I decided to give Nikki a smart casual look for her second outfit, something she could wear to the office and drinks later on. I teamed up this bold red blazer from New Look with a plain camisole, dark blue jeans and these sexy leopard print courts from Dune. The statement gold necklace and structured black handbag made nice finishing touches; smart but chic.
