My Birthday Suit

I would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming response to my first post yesterday. I am very humbled by the feedback recieved by peers and new followers. My second post leads from yesterdays by continuing on showing you my own personal style lookbook. I can't describe my style, but maybe in a few weeks time someone will be able to box me into a catagory. I don't follow celebrity style but I do believe in buying into brands. One of those brands I love is french label; The Kooples.

It was my birthday last weekend, and I chose to wear a gold coloured tailored Kooples blazer, as part of a two piece suit with matching shorts. The Kooples are known to produce edgy-chic clothing and this was no ordinary birthday outfit. The metallic, single buttoned gold tuxedo jacket has beautiful black lapels and detailed black buttons on the cuff, complemented by the high rise short-shorts. Check out TV presenter Caroline Flack below rocking the blazer last December.

Kooples are renowned for their smart Saville Row tailoring, and have proven to be seasonal favourites since their foundation in 2008. I will expand further on both womens tailoring, and The Kooples brand itself in a future post.

The outfit was completed with a Diane Von Furstenburg chain handbag i recieved as a gift from my sister. It was a smart buy, with what can only be descibed as a cross between a Chanel and Lulu Guinness.

Last weekend was the best birthday ever, made special by my friends, family and boyfriend. Here's to being 25 and fabulous!
Until next time Ducklings,
Love Vera xX
