Suzannah Dress / Charlotte Olympia Clutch / Jennifer Zeuner Necklace / Gorjana Rings / Celine Glasses / Christian Louboutin Heels

I think by now you would all know how much I’m obsessed with Charlotte Olympia. The hardest part about her designs is the incredibly high price tag that comes with them. As much as I absolutely love the quirkier heels (the ‘Bananas is my Business’ Heels still haunt my dreams), I often tend to invest in the simple and classic styles I can wear with nearly everything that I know won’t date too quickly either. But when I saw this clutch it was a whole different story. My justifying process was close to non-existent and all I knew was I just had to have it. And when it arrived? Well let’s just say it was an easy reminder as to why I love Charlotte Olympia so much. It just comes down to that¬†simple yet overwhelming feeling you get when you try it on for the first time and there’s absolutely no remorse, just pure love, excitement and perhaps a tiny squeal and twirl in there too (surely I’m not the only one who has ever done this?). And for me, that kind of happiness makes it worth every single penny.Well, that’s what I tell myself anyway. Luke didn’t really understand. Surely it hasn’t come to the point in our lives where I have to start hiding new purchases from him or telling him “Don’t worry, I got it on sale…”?

Zanita and I took these photos when the sun was setting on the second day of MBFWA. I also mixed them in with some street style photos I found floating around the internet which highlight just how fun this clutch is. And if you’re reading this Luke, I got it on sale!
