Coach Watches

Am I the only one who tries to match the watch to her outfit or there are more like me who can't go out if the watch is not the same colour metal as her jewellery ? I know I am a bit obsessed with this kind of things and when I've noticed that Coach  makes watches perfect to be matched to what we wear and our accessorises I could not resist from writing about them.
They are all beautiful, difficult to choose from the extensive range  that Coach has introduced at the end of July. I love the leather straps that matches the handbags that the American label manufactures and honestly there is a style for anyone and for every taste.
The colours are gorgeous and they allow for a perfect outfit matching. The dials are white with black Arabic numerals, perfect for checking the time with no mistakes. I like the square shape, giving an edge to a classic design.
This is the Turnlock Cuff that celebrates the 50th anniversary of this kind of lock for the Coach bags, so this watch is well fitted in the collection bringing back a piece of history for this brand. The strap is in a top version of the Coach leather used for the bags  and the locket hides the watch. With one item you've got two accessorises : a watch and a a bracelet.
Animal prints are still big this Autumn/Winter  season (well keep them for next Spring Summer too) and if you don't feel bold enough to wear a leopard print garment but still you don't want to miss out on a trend, the Coach watches with animal print dials are just what you need.
The Legacy Sport Chrono is either with a metal strap or with the leather strap like in these two versions. The plating on the cases are very rich in yellow and rose gold, Swarovski crystals are on the bezel which is embossed with the Coach New York lettering.
The Tristen Stone Dial are absolutely beautiful with their semi precious stones dials. Tiger's eye, onyx and lapis lazuli are the three stones chosen for this season collection and I find them terrific, maybe because I love semi precious stones. May I suggest for a next model to use Labradorite ? I love it and it would be great in a watch.
Blackout is the black on black collection in stainless steel ion plated. The Turnlock Cuff is made with soft Port leather from the Coach bags production and the ceramic watch in black finish is just to die for. The Chain Link Bracelet is inspired  by the design of  the Coach  hangtag. As you can see the watches are all linked to the heritage of the bags designs. Check online at www.uk.coach.com to find a store near you and to browse the range of watches and more , in order to know when what you like will be available.

Hanro celebrates 130th Anniversary

Hanro, the Swiss lingerie and loungerie brand is 130 this years been founded in 1884 and since then it's always been synonymous of understated luxury. To celebrate this important birthday, a new capsule collection called " The Universe of Hanro" has been launched this October 2014 with a vintage style taken from the extensive Hanro archives.
Beautiful details mixed with modern cuts, the softest cotton -cashmere, the lightest cotton tulle and viscose satin have been used for this collection, lace and embroidery are present and the beautiful palette of dark red, anthracite and gold grey can be mixed and matched.
This beautiful model, is wearing a delicate body made in cotton tulle with Art Nouveau lace in a vibrant red lipstick colour, teamed up with the sophisticated gold grey robe made in soft viscose satin. This collection has just landed in shops nationwide and there are few items for men as well in dark blue and grey stripes.
Hanro has got a huge range of nightwear and loungewear, the fabrics used are always of the highest quality, because nightwear is in direct contact with our skin. This nightdress and robe are from the Queens range which is available in off white and in this beautiful purple shade. The guipure embroidery is a real treat.

The Met model has got  a very practical turtle neck shirt with lace details and maxi brief. The shirt is perfect under a jacket  or under an A line dress with short sleeves. Available in black as well and with a t shirt or long sleeve shirt, it is the everyday model that makes you feel right and comfortable.
The West Village top is another of those pieces made by Hanro that can be worn under a jacket, because it is so elegant with that silk detail that it is a pity to leave it under a garment. It is made of wool and silk, so you can only imagine how soft it is. As well as dust pink, it is available in light melange, coffee and black, so that just changing the top  you can have nearly a week worth of outfit at work.
The Tribeca model is a great pyjama made in cotton and modal, for a better comfort. A nightdress is available as well in this great plum colour or ash or chocolate. Hanro makes luxurious items that can be worn at home as loungewear, so that at the end of a day at work, the highlight of the day is coming home, have a shower and change in a comfortable outfit  like this.
Hanro doesn't make only lingerie, there is a range of loungerie  that can be mixed and matched with some of the underwear and nightwear garments. This soft cardigan is the Thompson , made of modal and cashmere. The colours available are pink taupe, olive and black. It is teamed with a pair of Prince long pants in jersey and the Fine Line top from the basic range.
I love this bra from the Moments range. It is in a beautiful rich purple shade, which is my favourite colour. The bra has got a matching brief, but here it has been styled with a pair of plain brief and the contrast works very well. Only few weeks before Christmas, go online at www.hanro.com and browse for the perfect gift or to leave hints about what would you like to receive.

You can do your shopping spree during your lunch break, you will receive your parcel at your desk and it is very easy to return something if it doesn't fit you or you want to exchange it with a smaller size. All this without the hassle of traipsing through crowded streets and packed up shops. I've picked some of my favourite looks from this new season.
I love this ensemble from the Fearne Cotton collection at Very.co.uk. The positive.negative print in a range of berry colours is very autumn. Great with thick tights and black patent leather brogues. The price is fabulous with the top at £ 25.00 and the asymmetrical skirt with big zip at £ 29.00.
This trousers suit with detachable fur collar from the Definitions collection at Very.co.uk is a beauty. Teal is a great colour and the print circle reminds me of the 1970s look. The blazer has got a ribbon instead of buttons and it is priced at £ 39.00, while the trousers are £ 27.00.
Let's start thinking about Christmas parties here, it is never too late for that and the first party can land anytime in the next few weeks. This beautiful lace dress from the Definitions collection in a green hue is perfect and timeless and spending just £ 49.00 you can be sure to be always right depending on what dress code is on the invite. The textured coat  from the Definitions collection at £ 79.00 will keep you warm through all the cold season.
Great floral print from the Fearne Cotton collection for this kimono jacket and trousers. It is very easy to match with everything you 've got in your wardrobe and I am sure it will be a staple, perfect for winter and when the weather is going to be warmer. I can see myself wearing this outfit while travelling by plane because it is comfortable and it keeps you covered when air con is a full blast. The kimono is priced at £ 39.00 and the trousers at £ 35.00.
This baby doll pale blue coat with fur collar from the Love Label at Very.co.uk has got a vintage look that is timeless.
