Versace has long been a favourite fashion house of mine. I adore the Medusa motifs on everything from their ready-to-wear and accessories to their homeware collections. I dream to one day visit Gianni Versace’s Villa in Miami which is now a hotel! Gianni Versace propelled Elizabeth Hurley to fame with the famous safety pin dress in the 90s and Lady Gaga has been lucky enough to have access to the archive of his designs recently! The label still keeps his style alive with super sexy and feminine designs and every season I fall in love with the entire collection. Here are a few of my favourite pieces from past and present collections…

Here are a few images that I haven’t before shared.. from my recent nights out and time spent with friends……!

Last night at Annabel’s Club with my BEAUTIFUL Kerri Berri!
My gorgeous, dearest friend Holly has finally returned from Australia! So last night I settled her back into London life with a nice dinner at Nobu followed by too many cocktails at too many bars! We have spent the day recovering… and have just finished a mammoth cooking task. We made steak according to Gordon Ramsey’s recipe and lots of cupcakes!
Last night I has a spontaneous night with my gorgeous friend Kat at Zuma in Knightsbridge. The japanese food there is, in my opinion, the best in London! We had a few cocktails and a LOT of food! Today, I’ve spent the day in the spa at The Lanesborough Hotel! It was a lovely surprise for me… and I thoroughly enjoyed being pampered! Its a beautiful spa and I will certainly be paying it a visit again…
I wore 1950s Vintage sequin top from Portobello Market, Leather pants by Emilio Pucci and shoes by Christian Louboutin.
My spa suite!
My favourite saturday brunch spot, The Wolseley, was too busy today… so I tried Fortnum and Mason’s instead.. and was pleasantly surprised! The menu was limited but their produce was amazing, though that was to be expected! Their food halls are spectacular and I strongly recommend a nose around on a trip to London! They were getting ready for easter… displaying eggs like works of art. Some of them cost in excess of £200! But sooo beautiful….
Emilio Pucci is blowing my mind right now! I’ve always known of the brand and associated it with the colourful prints… But recently I have seen his past season pieces popping up on flash sale sites and its led me to do a bit of research.
After purchasing my all time favourite garment from Pucci last year, I had to treat myself to some more pieces from the flash sales… and now I’m obsessed! I’m so happy with my purchases, I am now checking sites on a daily basis for new items! Pucci’s price point is pretty extreme for current collections but buying past season is much more affordable and everything is timeless so I will be wearing it for the foreseeable future.. I am now waiting on a dark navy blue pair of leather skinnies and I cannot wait!
Last years studded and jewelled leather jacket!
