Designer in Spring

Hey lovely readers. I know it has been a week since I last posted, but I have been a little unwell and been lacking inspiration. The combination have left me not feeling as if I should burden you with a half hearted post, but I have gained some inspiration from nothing less than some designer desirables. I am the kind of person who knows what they want (when it comes to fashion, not a clue when it comes to life ) and it is usually designer. In recent years I have been spending lots of money on bits I use a few times, but then throw them out. Although these things cost a small amount of money, they rack up and end up being wasted. I thought about this the other day quite thoroughly and I have come to the conclusion I am going to start saving for some investment pieces. Yes, I, Kassie Barker Jones am going to learn to save. quit laughing. I am honestly horrendous when it comes to saving, I cannot save for my life. BUT, a few of the bits I am going to put images of below might just be worth walking past MAC and not buying a new lipstick, or walking through Topshop and not coming out with a bag. Life often throws challenges, and this particular one is painful. Nevertheless, worth it because who doesn't like a little bit of luxury in their life?

I was browsing on Avenue 32, if you don't know it you should as it has the most delightful clothing. From 3.1 Philip Lim to Temperley London, it has a vast range of luxurious clothing for you to lust over, and me of course. If you haven't checked it out, then why not do so HERE for super chic fashion. 

So firstly I thought I would show you the 3.1 Philip Lim bits I have been loving from Avenue 32:


3.1 Philip Lim pumps - £355 - CLICK TO BUY

So if I am honest, 3.1 Philip Lim cames to my attention through his bags. The Pashli Satchel has been seen absolutely everywhere, and quite frankly I need it. I hadn't ever really looked at the shoes, but these caught my eye. I love that they are warmer colours for Spring, yet the snake skin makes them that little more edgy than they would of been without it. For £355 I would personally purchase because they just stand out to me, I love the colours and the designs. 


3.1 Philip Lim 31 hour bag - £1165 - CLICK TO BU

Well it wouldn't be a complete desirable wishlist if it didn't include a bag. I am hunting down a Pashli Satchel, and they do have them on Avenue 32, but this really caught my eye. I love them both, but this is very classy and understated. The perfect Victoria Beckham bag. Also, I love my black bags. They really are ideal for absolutely anything!

Okay so then onto another brilliant collection, Temperley London. There wasn't as much in this collection as in 3.1 Philip Lim, but I am not one to struggle finding something I like. Shopping really is my forte, or rather spending mass amounts of money. So Temperley is one of those designers I always find brings a little bit of understated glamour to a collection, the designs are just - - incredible. They really do make me almost speechless. 


Temperley London China Blue Jacquard Dress - £1500 - CLICK TO BUY

How cute is this dress? Seriously, I would feel as if my inner Blair Waldorf had arisen in this dress. It really is the perfect dress for her, but also many other people. With a mix of blue and silvers in the colour, it stands out. 


Temperley London Peony Top - £995 - CLICK TO BUY

Lace is hot this season, it has been featured everywhere. I personally am all for this trend - I love lace. I love how lace has evolved from being considered tacky to being glamorous. This top envisions that, it shows how lace is now glamorous and chic. Another trend is the all white trend, so this top fits into both. I love the lace and the colour, combined it makes a simple yet elegant piece.

  10. Great selection Kassie! I love the fact you've kept a bit of black in there as so many people would have swapped it for beige pieces but black is so much more useful.
