As a new Londoner, I’m still in the process of adjustment, every day being a new “style” challenge for me, due to the unstable weather. I’ve learned that it’s smart to grab a jacket before you leave the house in the evening; to wear shoes that you’re fine getting damaged; and to avoid suede at all costs. As I said, it is smart, but that doesn’t mean I do it. However, after spending a while in the city, getting to know the people, their attitude, easiness, I’ve come to the conclusion that all of that doesn’t really matter. Sandals, skirts, silk, everything that makes me feel beautiful you’ll see me wearing, no matter the weather, and that’s because enjoying yourself sometimes means running in the rain wearing sandals.
Following that new life rule of mine, I’ve created an outfit that reflects my vision of the “London Sophisticate”, to celebrate the opening of Tamara Mellon’s Online Store in the UK. The former President and Co-Founder of Jimmy Choo is the new uber-cool designer to know and wear. As chic as they look, all the pieces are created in a timeless design, making them the perfect fashion investment. A pair of absolutely stunning sandals, matched with a stylish fringe skirt, and a modern leopard blouse; yes, I can definitely see myself rocking this outfit at the coolest parties in town!
Also, to celebrate the opening of the online store, Tamara Mellon is offering 15% off for The Golden Diamonds readers. How exciting! So if you fancy any of these items, head to the website, choose your favourite piece and use the code TMGD15 in order to get a discount.
