Been a while, but ya girls back!
And I'm back with a big one!
I have collaborated with KoKo Couture, an accessories and extension brand found in Topshop and online on their website https://www.kokocouture.co.uk/ to make a pastel pink lookbook featuring their gorgeous Maddison Faux Leather Handbag In Pink!
Can we just.....this bag is just so beaut, I really cannot! Plus it's only £15!!
Anyways in this blog post I'll be styling the bag for a day and night so without further ado....
*disclaimer* everything I'm wearing apart from the bag is last season ( so no longer in stock) but I have linked identical items in the picture descriptions
This is my day look. With this look I wanted the bag to compliment everything I was wearing and for the whole outfit to just flow and I think I achieved that! Now I didn't go out and buy a whole new outfit, I just found old clothes in my wardrobe that fit the colour pallete of this bag, threw them together and voila! I think its really important in summer or any season for that matter, to not feel like you have to and get a whole new wardrobe for that season but to find a statement peice you can pair with a number of the clothes you already have and mix and match!
This first outfit gives me major Insta baddie vibes I wont lie! But it's hella comfy and warm (this particular day was freezing) . As the outfit is quite street-wear, I wanted to incorporate the bag (as it's rather fancy) in a way that it would be statement, but not interfere with the whole look. So I opted to wear it like a fanny pack, which btw is no longer reserved for tourists, they are making a comeback! Anyways I think wearing the bag in this way gives the outfit a whole new look and glams it up without making it too girly ( i think the pink does that for it!)
My second look was all about dressing up to match the bag. Whenever I want to make an outift look more "night" appropriate I always try to use materials that look expensive. For example this satin look shirt paired with a statement gold necklace (to compliment the gold detailing on the bag) gives the look a little mo' mulla! To make it less formal I tied it as crop top just above the waistband of this adorbs metallic pleated skirt!
I finished off the ensemble with my fave dressy shoes from Asos which fitted perfectly with the whole look!
What do you think of the bag? Yay? Nay? Did I nail the night + day look? Hotel? Trivago..
