The Monday Piece - Chanel 5161 Sunglasses at Pretavoir

This week's Monday Piece is on Chanel 5161 sunglasses at Pretavoir! I've not bought any new sunglasses since last year so when these caught my eye i thought why not treat myself - for brand new Chanel the price is really reasonable and i loved the lightly printed style to make a change from my all black pairs otherwise. Whenever i fancy a mooch at some glasses or sunglasses, Pretavoir is my go to site, it has an impressive selection of styles including new and classic variations, plus all items are 100% genuine so there's no grey area when it comes to authenticity, which is the most important thing to me when buying luxury pieces.

Also their customer service totally rocks - as Chanel wish to maintain an exclusive element to their products and the way you shop the brand, you are able to reserve the pieces you want to purchase by adding them to the basket and completing the order without actually purchasing them. Pretavoir then arrange to call you (or vice versa) to confirm which style you want to buy, they then physically check the stock room to ensure your desired item is in stock, then lastly confirm your shipping destination and collect payment.

They run a seriously tight ship and i love the personal service you receive when purchasing Chanel at Pretavoir - as i'm based in Australia i chose the standard shipping service which somehow arrived in three working days...most likely on a magic carpet as that is amazingly quick! My sunglasses arrived in a neat white box, inside the box you receive the original outer Chanel box, authenticity documents, invoice, care booklet, sunglasses box, pouch, cleaning cloth, and a Chanel carrier bag too - i loved unwrapping it all and pulling out the black lace style 5161 Chanel sunglasses, i chose the almost rectangular shape as i didn't want a big oversized pair and thought these were different enough in style and shape to my other styles. They fit really well, have classic silver hardware, and look pretty darn chic so i'm happy, and definitely recommend you check out Pretavoir for any luxury styles you might have your eye on!

Missguided Crochet Dress

We were forecast a huge storm this weekend but it came and went on Friday meaning we've had some lovely sunshine over the past few days instead so i thought it'd be a great chance to put on my white crochet Missguided dress! I've had this a little while but haven't got round to wearing it much, the fabric is really light and it has navy crochet detailing giving it a Greek kind of vibe - the back is really low and it laces up at the bottom so it looks really pretty, it's not a great fit though as the front drapes really low and is fairly loose. The reviews said to size down so that's what i did, i'm usually an 8-10 but went for a 6 and it's still loose around the top...it was cheap though so i guess you get what you pay for!
On Friday we braved the rain and walked over to the isle of Capri where they have the most amazing vintage luxury store selling preloved Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci and more - i'm really getting into preloved lately as everyone seems to be wearing the same kind of designer bags, when i'm spending £££ on designer pieces like handbags i look for something a little 'different' or maybe even a line that's been discontinued - it's much more fun to wear something not everyone else has and with the top crop of designers, handbags pretty much always hold their value, if not increasing in value as time goes on. There were so many styles including classic pieces as well as limited edition pieces, i managed to hold myself back but we'll wait and see how long that lasts...We then hopped on a bus to Burleigh for an acai bowl and to browse their stunning boutiques, then on the way back we stopped off at the library to lend a few books - reading on the beach listening to the ocean is the ideal thing to do to unwind!

The Monday Piece - Black and Florals

This week's Monday Piece is on black and florals! I'm not really a florals kind of girl, especially 'ditsy' prints, but this season has some pretty feisty bold prints as well as pretty satin pieces that can easily grunged up with some black leather or high hemlines. The boohoo satin asymmetric dress is ultra slinky and would look great with a bralette underneath and some ultra pretty pink satin mules. I adore the Alexander Wang feather bucket bag, the fluffiness is so fun and the bucket style is ideal for everyday - it would look awesome with a one shouldered top and lace up skirt plus some strappy sandals. As always i'm coveting OTT footwear, the Kurt Geiger slip on trainers have a netted veil in the shape of a bow...they aren't that practical but they would definitely stand out when worn with a casual jeans and t-shirt look! I've included some other printed accessories too like the neckerchief and belt that are great for mixing up classic items or monochrome outfits - are you a fan of floral prints?
