ERDEM

I have never been one to favour a maxi dress over a shorter style, but since the very early stages of my pregnancy, the idea of a long flowing dress has become ever more appealing and my collection is fast growing. This Erdem dress is so far removed from my usual style – for one, colour is involved and two, it falls past my knees (something I would not have contemplated other than for an evening event just 6 months ago!) Not only is this divine dress extremely comfortable, which is something I greatly appreciate these days, but I feel incredible wearing it.

GIVENCHY – JUNYA WATANABE – YSL – ALAIA

A meeting with the wonderful Harrods PR girls this morning, so a look predominantly purchased from the store is of course only polite (and I am in love with this new YSL camel jacket, so any excuse to wear it…) The Givenchy leather top is actually my usual size, a FR38, and is a perfect loose fit so I can wear it now and postpartum, while the stretch Junya Watanabe long skirt sits comfortably above my bump and is my newest favourite piece to pair with any top I have in my collection as it looks amazing with anything I pair it with.

LA PRAIRIE CAVIAR HYDRALIFT PEDICURE – LANESBOROUGH HOTEL

The Lanesborough Hotel has always been a treasured destination for me – the Library Bar can be placed in my top 5 favourite haunts in the world to enjoy a perfect martini with friends – so when hearing of the highly recommended Spa Studio within the hotel, I was both intrigued and excited to see if the spa was as wonderful as the rest of the hotel. It was.

As I was heading to a dear friends wedding in a very hot climate this past weekend (I have just returned, it was such fun and I am still shocked that I danced until 2am last night!) there was very good reason to ensure my feet were looking flawless, so I booked an appointment for a La Prairie Caviar Hydralift Pedicure; the only place in the UK where you can have your feet treated with La Prairie products.

Laying on a cushioned treatment bed, my feet were soaked in the most divinely scented water before being pampered to perfection – brushed to a smooth and silky finish, massaged with La Prairie moisturizers, then the most exclusive of La Prairie masks was applied under the warmth of hot towels that enveloped my feet while the product was left to hydrate my skin.

The experience was not only blissfully relaxing, but left my feet looking and feeling smoother and more tended to than I can honestly say they ever had…a true destination for the most pleasurable, luxurious pedicure you could imagine.

EMILIA WICKSTEAD – JIL SANDER – JIMMY CHOO

Feeling rather demure today and as I have press meetings much of the day, this divine Emilia Wickstead dress seems like the perfect fit – even more so when teamed with my favourite Jimmy Choo’s (so incredibly comfortably) and Jil Sander sting ray clutch.

JAMES READ TAN AT THE AGUA SPA, SANDERSON HOTEL

I would not have thought it possible to actually enjoy standing in a fan-assisted booth while being spray painted with a brown liquid, but this week I found myself in just this situation when I was fortunate enough to secure an appointment with the world’s most sought after self tan expert James Read. And when I say ‘World’s most’ this is not a fabrication of the truth; James’s client list could certainly be counted as 90% of the attendees at this year’s Baftas. Models, actresses and fashion luminaries have long known of this tanning genius and due to a wedding in an extremely hot climate this weekend, I now know just why James is the name on everybody’s lips when it comes to taking your skin tone up a few shades while ensuring your colour looks entirely natural. Not only has my tan remained the same shade as the first morning I awoke to find myself looking far healthier than the English weather has allowed for this year, but there was no terrible streaking or white patches – James would never allow such a thing to happen (and when you are lucky enough to experience his technique first hand, you will understand just why this is the most flawless self tan you will ever experience)…

BALMAIN – OSCAR DE LA RENTA

I am possibly the only person I know who is pleased that the weather is somewhat cooler than it should be in June, predominantly due to the fact that my body temperature is above average, but I also prefer wearing leather and cashmere as the looks are always far stronger (although they don’t sit well in a climate above 16oC of course!) This Balmain leather skirt is one of the most incredible pieces I found this season and due to wearing it slightly higher than intended, the FR38 fits, thus meaning I hopefully won’t need to make any alterations when I have had my baby…

VIKTOR & ROLF / BUGABOO COLLABORATION

It certainly felt as though I should be researching products when the three month countdown began, so when speaking with friends, there were a few key names that came very highly recommended and one was certainly Bugaboo. I had of course seen sleek Bugaboo’s passing me with fabulous looking new mother’s attached, so when told of a new collaboration with adventurous fashion favourites Viktor & Rolf, I knew I had to view the new design.

The Bugaboo Cameleon3 collaboration is entitled ‘My First Car’ after the Dutch duo envisaged ‘a luxurious and innovative vehicle which is the ultimate in mobility design’ and they have definitely ensured that their design lives up to its name. The customised stroller comes in a mono-colour anodised grey chassis, with classic sports car style fabric, a rear window as you would expect of a classic car and is exclusively equipped with rear silver alloy wheels. This is one stroller that will, without question, stand out in any neighbourhood saturated with only the chicest parents (and with the competitive nature I have been warned about, that is certainly saying quite a lot about this design!)

The Bugaboo Cameleon3 by Viktor&Rolf will be available September 2012.

BALMAIN – YSL

With a wedding in an extremely hot climate next weekend, I have to find two amazing dresses for the celebrations – beach cocktails on Friday and the wedding ceremony on Saturday. I am leaning towards this incredible Balmain dress for the beach cocktails, paired with gold flat gladiator sandals (that I have yet to buy, but spied last week while in Christian Louboutin…)

YVES SAINT LAURENT – CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN

This is a dress that even I would admit to not looking pregnant in (and I feel very obviously pregnant in everything I wear now…) The fluidity and volume of this YSL dress would allow for any shape and I know this will be one piece that I shall be wearing for as long as my expanding bump will allow.

DOLCE & GABBANA – GIVENCHY – YSL

Ignoring the fact that it is raining outside, I am channelling extreme summer with the most divine Dolce & Gabbana floral dress and Givenchy feather jacket for an event at the Lanesborough this evening. The Swede and I shall rendezvous in possibly my favourite room in London – the Library Bar – before the event, the perfect place to take tea and wind down before being entirely sociable for the remainder of the evening…
