pitti uomo 85: day 2...

Wearing faux fur coat, House of Holland star dress, Miu Miu suede heels, Richard Nicoll x Ksubi sunglasses and Hermès Rose Tyrien Constance.

Day 2 of Pitti Uomo 85 was actually a bit colder than I had anticipated. Walking around with the boys I was given some pretty odd looks, probably questioning why I left my legs bare but the morning had started off really warm and sunny (as you can see in the first few pictures!). This dress is fantastic. Truly. I am not one to wear a lot of colours but this one was really easy to pull off and so much fun to wear! 

The last image was snapped by Alan while Enrico Labriola was taking photos of me, which is now up on the Pitti Immagine W website. At some point the fog came in and it really got too cold for me so I left the boys to do their buying and snuck away to Harry's Bar for a pasta. Delicious food and fantastic service!

pitti uomo 85: day 1...

Day outfit: No21 by Alessandro Dell'aqua coat, Zara turtleneck, Topshop skirt, Céline sunglasses and heels, Rocio lacquered wooden clutch, rings from the 9th Muse and Tom Ford's Bruised Plum on the lips
Night outfit: Miu Miu coat, Topshop Leigh jeans, Giuseppe Zanotti python boots, Hermès scarf, Borsalino hat and NARS Dolce Vita on the lips

After having our flight from Helsinki to Hong Kong delayed by a day, we arrived in Hong Kong with less than 24 hours to repack before flying out to Milan. We touched down in Milan on Sunday morning and the next day hopped on the train, arriving in Florence on Monday with time to spare. Unfortunately I misplaced my black floppy hat which I absolutely adored, and so Alan brought me to Bosalino for replacement. It seems like each time we come to Firenze I leave with a new hat. Wee!

all i want for christmas...

... With the holidays looming, I thought I'd do one more post before taking off to Finland (Rovaniemi, to be exact) for Christmas, and Paris for New Years.

Alan and I were asked by Electric Sekki to fill in this little questionnaire a couple weeks ago and now it's up on their blog!

CLICK HERE to read our super cheesy replies, hehe. 

I'm so excited for our upcoming trip! There's so much to pack though, and so little time.

What are you doing for your holidays? Whatever you do/wherever you go, stay warm, safe and have a great time!

Seasons Greetings!

hip hip hooray...

 ...The Armoury is three!


Wearing viscose top from DAY Birger et Mikkelsen (available here), Céline tweed trousers, Roger Vivier Belle de Nuit heels from Paris, Chanel bag, vintage earrings from London, and NARS Dragon Girl lip pencil

I can't believe the boys opened up The Armoury three years ago- time really just flew by!

Last night started off at the Pedder Building store where clients, friends and family showed up for a bit of bubbly and whiskey before heading to dinner at Boqueria. It was lovely seeing old faces and meeting new ones and to have all the people that help make The Armoury what it is under one roof.

Maybe it's the shorter 'do but I've been favouring silk shirts and trousers over dresses lately and last night was no exception. Unfortunately, the earrings belong to my sister (lucky girl!) but I managed to borrow them for the night and paired with the Belle de Nuit heels they added just the right amount of sparkle!
