Silver Leather – Style Diary #07

I’ve got a thing for silver leather.  It started last Summer when a lot of brands were using metallics and iridescent looks on leather clothes and accessories.

It was around that time that I got my eye on this bold silver leather Rucksack by Jas MB London. Similar here.


 This Summer the high Streets are embracing the Silver look.  Double silver accessories are ok.  But don’t go OTT or overly fussy. Keep bags boxy and shoes clumpy.  No kitten heels or stilettos for this look, it’s more rucksacks, platform brogues, and loafers.

This season I’m loving Grenson’s Emily shoe in Silver and also the tasseled Clara, but at £210 and £215 they may need to wait until payday.

In the meantime, I’m teaming the bag with these preloved loafers from the British Red Cross Shop in Shoreham.

Wear your silver accessories with jeans and a shirt for a dressed up dress down look. Mix blue, grey black and white.  Cooler tones have more show with a little silver.


Now let’s get spacey

Sunday Supplement #19 – Gift Edit

I know it’s just the start of December, but I can’t help talking about Christmas.  Christmas is everywhere, trees, decorations, parties, gatherings, family, friends and gifts.

I’ve been gathering ideas for gifts for the past couple of months now.  Trouble is I cant share the actual gifts I’m giving as that would give the game away.

So I got to thinking what I would like in my stocking…


  
  
First up feet, what with shopping and dancing you need fit feet for the festive season.  Try the Scholl Velvet Smooth Gift Set which includes this Express Pedi with diamond crystals, foot gel and party feet.

Everyone loves posh undies for Christmas. This year I’m choosing Silent Assembly for its no wires underwire technology.

Having chosen some of the brands stocked in our online shop Boston&Boston I’ll no doubt be selecting a necklace from Sam Ubhi or Melissa McArthur, and possibly this bag from Jas MB London.

Relaxing comes top of my list at Christmas time and what better way to do this than with an Olverum Bath Oil to soothe my aching limbs and a Aromatherapy Associates Candle to fill the air with perfume?

On the relaxing note I also think that this handy little Scentered Stress Less Therapy Balm will come in so useful for the festivites, makes a fab stockingfiller!


  
 Finally after all of those mince pies and christmas pudding it might be time to start thinking about that waistline, Yoga is my exercise of choice and I’ll be packing AM/PM Yoga for Beginners and Detox Yoga to revive me into the New Year.

So there you have it, more gift guides later in the week, however it’s now Sunday Afternoon it’s BBC Radio 6 Music’s Albums of the year and it might be time to light the fire and think about cooking a hot pot of goodness, then snooze and zone out.

Style Diary #01 – LFW

Hooray! As much as I hate to see the sunshine go I’m a little bit delighted to see rain clouds this morning. For as we all know the best things about Autumn are boots and coats!

My absolute best buy so far this Autumn Winter season has been skinny ankle boots from Topshop.  I bought them in black then nude and they saw me through LFW a treat, no plasters for me ladies, just warm comfy toes.  The boots are called Magnificent and they really are.

As the weather now seems to be changing to more Autumnal feeling days I thought I’d share with you an outfit that I wore on day one of LFW this September.

The skirt and coat are by Modern Love a beautiful brand I work with in Brighton.  Digital prints on monochrome light wool, lined in a silky lime green.

I teamed the suit with a silk vest from H&M, my trusty magnificent boots and my go to leather bag from Jas MB.

Jas MB AW15 Preview & Sample Sale On Now

Hey Folks

There’s hardly a break in the fashion calendar, new season development, samples, shows, buying, selling, making and finally delivering those all important products into our shops.

Deborah Simpson Boston

I’ve been busy spending the last few months organising press days and showing products to press and bloggers. Much of this time has been spent showcasing the fabulous new collection from luxury leather brand Jas MB.

First we had a press day where among others we showed the collection to the beautiful gals from LadyLoves Danielle Alexandria and Natalie Courtoise.  They loved the collection, they both have a very different style and headed towards very different bag shapes and textures. They also enjoyed the cupcakes!

Last week top blogger Whitney Valvedere from Whitney’s Wonderland paid us a visit. I’m taking a photography course at the moment so my camera is with me at all times, so I took this opportunity to take some snaps of the new collection, it turned into a bit of an impromptu photoshoot.  Here’s the results, mostly pics of the insanely pretty Whitney (who is just as sweet as she looks) but I’ve also added a couple of pic of Brand Manager Miss Mel and some cheeky selfies.  What do you think?

Oh and if you happen to be in Shoreditch the next couple of days, get yourself down to 20 Rivington Street for the Jas MB Sample Sale, on today and tomorrow so be quick!

I recently spent a couple of days away.  With the current inclement weather I opted for casual layers in a small range of colours that I could easily interchange.
A pink blush and bit of blue denim seem to be my wardrobe basics at the moment. I followed a simple rule of shirt and comfortable jeans or jeggins (don’t laugh there is a place for jeggins, and car travel is it!)
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I dressed basics with a beautiful Jas MB London bag, an Age of Reason Scarf  and a classic leather or denim jacket.  At this time of the year I spend little on clothing (jeans and T’s) and invest in classic accessories, easy, effortless, weekend chic!
