One of the best things about Grazia's London Fashion Week take over of Matches HQ was the fashion team's run of their Marylebone store for our fashion week wardrobes, which is where I stumbled upon this pretty little leopard sweater by Stella McCartney. 
I love the contrast navy checkered back, slightly raised collar and shrunken fit, to put it mildly: it's the bomb! 
Above I'm wearing it with a pair of Giambattista Valli printed trousers but it also looks the part with voluminous skirts or just a pair of plain blue skinnies too. I ♥.

Me wearing: an Equipment python shirt, Current Elliott jeans, vintage Chanel bag, and jewellery by Alexis Bittar, Folli Follie, Annina Vogel and Laura Lee.  

Rihanna hits London town tomorrow for the unveiling of her collection for River Island at London Fashion Week, and as excitement reached fever pitch at Grazia HQ this week, the fashion team got onboard the RiRi fashion train and we attempted some Rihanna worthy looks of our own... 

Inspired by her off-duty style, I opted for a loud python print Equipment shirt and uber ripped Current/Elliott jeans, accessorised with plenty of gold jewellery, my vintage Chanel bag and black patent Jimmy Choo 'Agnes' stilettos. 

Not exactly in Rihanna's league, but about as fierce as I get! Now for the real McCoy I say...!

Me wearing: my Opening Ceremony 'Brenda' boots with stud add-ons by Start boutique, Paige Denim jeans, a shirt by
MiH Jeans and a Tory Burch cardie.

Tough, grunge-style boots are back in fashion favour, and whilst I'm very tempted to hot foot it to Tabitha Simmons and treat my feet to a pair of the 'Early' buckle boots, I'm refraining thanks to these leather and silver stud add-ons from East London's Start boutique.

Designed to be worn over shoes and boots alike, these canny stud-clad cuffs were created by Brix Smith-Start, a couple of years ago, to spice up plain shoes on days you want to look anything but. 

I dug mine out last week and have been wearing them over my understated Opening Ceremony 'Brenda' Chelsea-style boots, for some much needed outfit oomph (in all this horrible winter weather). 

Up close: my Opening Ceremony 'Brenda' boots worn with stud add-ons from Start boutique and Paige Denim x Liberty jeans.

Me wearing: H&M's new cord and jewel necklace, with a Gap shirt and Uniqlo cardigan.

It's finally February but my finances are still reeling from an excessive Christmas, so when I spotted this colourful cord and jewel necklace new from H&M I couldn't resist! 
Great for adding a little sparkle to these dark wintery days, this fun necklace is High Street jewellery at its finest. 
I love it worn with a denim shirt, as pictured above, but it's also great for adding a playful twist to smart, tailored outfits- not bad for under a tenner!
