I have always had a slight obsession with handbags i'm not going to lie but until recently I usually purchased my bags from high street stores such as Zara, Topshop or Riverisland however, after stumbling upon the Camelia Roma instagram whilst flicking through my feed I knew I had to buy one of their bags. I had been searching for a Chanel esque cross body bag with a chain strap and reptile skin detail for sometime but nothing had captured my interest until I began to scroll through Camelia Roma's website. I spotted a few bags immediately that were my taste and fitted the criteria. I was after a bag that was slightly more high end than those in the retail shops and I certainly found what I was looking for, Camelia Roma's beautifully crafted Italian bags looked so luxurious and sophisticated I knew I just had to have one. I spent sometime on the website trying to decided on exactly which bag I would chose (there were so many that I loved) but finally settled on the leather shoulder bag in black (it also comes in a brown/tan colour, which I am very tempted to get at a later date). I found delivery was prompt and the cherry on top was the packaging. The bag was packaged in a white box with a black ribbon tied into a large bow on the front with a flower placed in the centre of the bow. This extra little touch does make you feel like you have spent your money wisely and that the presentation shows a certain level of quality. I will definitely be returning to Camelia Roma in the future i'm positive!
I have styled this Missguided blazer with blue jeans, a layered camisole and loafers for a casual summer look. Generally I am not a frequent suit/blazer wearer however after finding this piece online I thought I would try it out. I got the blazer in a size six, it fits well, with structured shoulders and is not restricting in anyway. I feel like I have a lot of casual bomber jackets however, wanted a jacket that was a bit more sophisticated and smart. My style is mainly casual on a day to day basis but sometimes its nice to switch it up a bit and try out something different. This tailored monochrome blazer gives the impression of looking more expensive than it is, if your looking for something affordable I would recommend this one hundred percent. One of my favourite aspects of this piece is the contrasted lapel on the blazer. I have also been hunting for a pair of mirrored sunglasses for quite some time now and finally found this pair, which I picked up from Topshop.
