A Note on Personal Style

Over the past few weeks, I couldn’t help but pose a question of personal style. What makes an authentic personal style? Wearing three new-in pieces from Zara, is that personal style? Is imitating your favourite fashion blogger who wore flatforms with a red blazer and leather pants whilst posing down a whimsical Kensington street… is that personal style? To me, personal style is creating outfits that you love, that you put together from your own vision whilst you were ironing your bedding on a Sunday afternoon, watching Sex and The City reruns… Perhaps it’s inspired by your favourite designers but ultimately, you wear exactly what you want to wear and with any luck, something that makes you feel remarkable. I’ve never been happy with my style, I might have had a cute bag and shoes but the clothes part was never that great. In recent times, I’ve began to truly ascertain my own personal aesthetic and as a result my style has developed tremendously. Not only has my confidence grown but I feel more like …

Feelin’ 22

It’s Wednesday 22nd March and it’s my 22nd Birthday next week. I’ve had to stop writing and search out Taylor Swifts’ album Red, so I can write about feeling twenty-two whilst singing 22. Whilst planning a Birthday dinner at my favourite restaurant, it occurred to me that no respectable party was without invites and so I turned to my go-to stationary site Papier and found the invitations my chic vibes only status would approve of – naturally this included a yellow striped envelope because yellow really is the colour of the season, if you didn’t already know. For a whole host of reasons, my birthday this year feels so much more than it has ever done previously. After a Dior filled 21st, I didn’t think I could top it so soon however, with new season Gucci vibes, an Italian adventure and the dinner party of my dreams with some truly fab friends – Feelin’ 22 has never felt better.   X EKD

Life is Gucci

Yes, I bought the gold Gucci shoes of my dreams and yes my life has never been better. I am writing this a week in advance as said shoes have been sat in my bedroom waiting to be worn and adored for just under a month now and my anticipation is eagerly mounting. However, as you’re reading this it’s actually my 22nd Birthday! SO, I purchased them online from Farfetch and they were delivered from Italy within two days. I have used Farfetch to purchase numerous luxury accessories and I always find their service and product selection to be pretty good. My Gucci Marmonts were beautifully wrapped in a Gucci box and came with two cream silk dust bags, perfect for travelling. They’re leather soled and fit like a glove however, I had previously tried the heeled pair on and so I knew I needed a size down as Gucci fits big. I take these in a 38 but I am typically a 39 in my other shoes like Tods, Lanvin or Louboutin. Also, they are …

Investing in Fashion?

Today, I couldn’t help but wonder when one should step aside from investing in classic staples and start buying into trend driven fashion. I have always tried to make sensible purchases; by that I mean luxury items that will never go out of style, like my Lady Dior or Chanel slingbacks for example. However, when one becomes infatuated with gold shoes, one arrives at a significant dilemma… My collection has only grown with time as it takes a while to save for these things so, I continually aim for timeless pieces to ensure they are a lifetime style investment. Thus, I’ve ended up with an array of wallets, handbags, shoes and scarves, all of which are wearable and chic pieces which elevate any outfit year after year. That being said, in recent times it would seem seasonal statements are the real indication of stylishness and who are you if you don’t have new season Gucci vibes? Be it a Chloe Faye, Dior So Real’s or Gianvito Rossi Calabria courts, trends are becoming the new timeless …

All The Vibes of 2016

I’d like to think that with every passing year, EKD is all the wiser and this year, I actually feel I am. Well when I say wiser, perhaps I mean happier? or content? or maybe this is just how one feels when the notion Gucci is life is finally realised? This year, I began to feel like myself – Yes I know, what a peculiar idea. But it’s true, I’ve never felt more like myself than I do now and I believe this has somewhat contributed to the overall success of my 21st year. I spent too much time on trains this year however, I refined the art of clutching my handbag in my lap whilst snoozing ungracefully on a 7am commute. I also ate more Italian food than ever and found myself eagerly planning all the trips I intend to take in 2017. My list is as follows (in no particular order) Rome, Florence, Milan and Paris. This list, which is constantly being added to, will be completed by next Christmas and I can’t …
