Mustard, Black & Gold


'I got up this morning and my very first thought: What will I wear today? I jumped out of my king-sized bed and skipped over to my glorious walk in. As in, wardrobe, of course! Hmmmm, am I in the mood for trousers, what colour should I go for? I wanted to stand out, so my mustard Topshop Ponti dress was enough colour to brighten my day. I just had to pair this shift dress with my new,  mid-calf length Giuseppe Zanotti boots.

As for the jewels? My 3.1 Phillip Lim organza and leather necklace would look so fabulous just sitting on my mustard dress, I thought. I quickly, but carefully took it out of its packaging and draped it on my neck. Perfect! My Topshop (but doesn't it look more expensive?) buckled satchel was the finishing touch to this perfect gold, mustard and black outfit.

I sashayed out of my penthouse apartment and I and my outfit lived happily ever after......'



........And then, I woke up! My alter ego "Sahara" (as in, my alter ego, not the desert!) has the best life ever.

Two things that I now need to do:

1. Get my hands on that Topshop dress. Hello, Mustard!
2. Stop reading chic-lit books. Years of reading them and my brain is 99% fantasy and 1% reality.

Topshop Satchel, £40
