This fall I am really into fedora hats and basically any accessories that have fringe or tassel embellishments such as my shoes, so I put together this boho outfit mixing some of my favorite accessories this season with an Anna Sui crochet lace dress. I actually bought this dress as a formal wear last year for my son’s baptism, but that’s what makes me really enjoy fashion in that styling the same piece of clothing with different accessories such as bags and shoes can completely transform the look. Since it was such a sentimental dress for me, I got my boy (who is 13 months now!) to make a cameo in this post lol.

I have been quite infatuated with stacking up bracelets and rings for a while – they look simple but I personally think that there is a lot of thought involved in having the right amount of accessories in the mix. The beautiful Cartier Juste Un Clou Ring in gold was my birthday present from my DH. I have always wanted a nice statement ring which doesn’t look too chunky on my fingers, and the Cartier was just perfect for the size and its unique design. I like to wear it with some dainty and sparkling midi rings, and my favorites are the Vita Fede rings. (I have previously raved about how gorgeous their accessories are in this post). Altogether they don’t look too overwhelming on my hands, and they are actually quite office appropriate.

I’ve been wearing this beautiful Jennifer Zeuner Chelsea Horizontal Bar Necklace with diamond a lot lately (bought here and it always arrives in an impeccably packaged box!). It’s a delicate yet sturdy horizontal bar gold necklace that adds an effortless chic spin to every outfit . I am not really a bold necklace person as it just takes too much time to find an outfit that matches, and this one is my favorite recent addition to my dainty necklaces collection. It is an everyday necklace that looks uber cool wearing it alone, as well as great for layering it with others. I am a big ban of Jennifer Zeuner Jewelry as their craftsmanship is superb for the price you pay, and they don’t look worn-out over time. Love love love!
This pair of Tabitha Simmons Hannah was my xmas treat for myself. – what could be a better present than some serious shoes therapy for a hard working mum! I have been eyeing them for so long and in the end I decided to take them home before they went on sale just in case my size got sold out later! (which it did and it’s now at 60% off at Barneys and Saks!) This pair is simply perfection to me – they are black and sexy, with a biker edge look. This is my first pair of shoes by Tabitha Simmons who is an A-list celeb stylist as well as a shoe designer with all her shoes made in Italy. I am quite amazed at the amount of thought she has put into her shoe design as they come with a built-in sole protector!! And it has a zip closure at the back so they are easy to slip in and out. I have to say these are the most comfortable booties I have worn for a very long time despite the heel size. Tabitha Simmons – you got me hooked, and right now I am drooling over this pair but my size is already gone!
And that’s how they look on super model Miranda Kerr! (photo credit from JustJared)
Vita Fede is my favorite jewelry brand at the moment. I call them “affordable luxury” because they aren’t cheap but much more affordable than the high end brands, and the quality is almost on par with some jewelry pieces that cost an arm and a leg. Each Vita Fede piece is immaculately crafted (they are all made in Italy) and uber stylish. The Titan Bracelet is their signature range, and if your budget allows I suggest to get a few different styles such as with crystals or stones to stack up. I have a baby wrist so I prefer the mini Titan range for mix and match.

Dior Vernis Trafalgar which was released recently in Australia quickly became my top favorite red nail lacquer – it’s a true stunning poppy red in a glossy gel-like finish. There are different variations of red, and my preference always lean towards this kind as it’s young and fresh. On my ring finger I am wearing the Ultra Midi Mini Titan Ring (also available here) by VITA FEDE. I am completely obsessed with everything from this brand at the moment and I will show you what I have collected so far in a future post.
I’ve been actively planning my new outfits once I unload the baby, so I have stocked these two new pairs of oxfords during the sales! One in white, and one in black. They are perfect for the spring and summer, and I cannot wait to wear them out with my Rag and Bone Dash Slouchy Jeans.

I never seem to get enough of bracelets and bangles – it’s one of the accessories I tend to wear the most on a daily basis. These days I am more into smaller and delicate pieces which allows me to mix and match, and my latest acquisition is the CC SKYE Hinge Nail Bangle (bought here). The studded Swarovski nail head adds a punch of glamor factor, and needless to say, it layers well with lots of other styles of bangles, particularly the Cartier LOVE bracelet!
