Weekly Wish List | Dressing Up Vs Dressing Down

Kurt Geiger Lobster Slippers


Croissant T-Shirt by GANNI | Leather ‘City’ bag by Balenciaga | Bleached jeans by Topshop | Lobster slippers by Kurt Geiger | Ruffled playsuit by H&M | Tulle skirt by Needle & Thread | Stripe shorts by Topshop | Gingham dress by Diane von Furstenberg | Blush palette by ZOEVA


When was the last time you got properly dressed up? For me it wasn’t that long ago, because work events regularly prompt me to slip into eveningwear. And that’s an element of my job that I thoroughly enjoy. However, in my personal life I rarely dress up up. And if I have a big event in the calendar I’m far more likely to go for a high/low fashion hybrid than full cocktail attire.

For instance, I’d pair Needle & Thread’s tulle maxi skirt with GANNI’s playful croissant T-shirt for an evening event. Or mix H&M’s dressy ruffled playsuit with the statement-making Kurt Geiger lobster slippers. It’s the little styling twists that keep things fresh, fun and modern!

Along with this week’s high and low after-dark essentials, I’m also coveting Topshop’s bleached jeans, which are the perfect relaxed fit. And I’ve fallen in love with the Balenciaga ‘City’ handbag all over again. I’m not currently in the market for a designer bag (I’m saving for a flat, after all). But if I was this classic would be first on my list!

Which style buys are topping your wish list this week? And would you dare to wear the Kurt Geiger lobster slippers? If yes, how would you style them?
