STYLE WATCH: Miranda Kerr

If you know me, you'll know about my crazy obsession with all things Victoria's Secret; the clothes, the wings, the models and most importantly, the angels style. The angels hold notoriety for their incredible bodies, and with that, their perfect style. One of my favourites is (well, was, since she is no longer an angel) Miranda Kerr. She always embodies the perfect mix of high and low, while pulling off an effortlessly chic style.

Warby Parker: Spectrum Sun Collection

On Tuesday 18th March, New York based eyewear company Warby Parker released their Spectrum Sun Collection. The collection features 9 new pieces, all retailing at $95USD/$120CAD on the Warby Parker website.

One thing I really love about this company, aside from super stylish eyewear, is the do good mantra. For every pair sold, Warby Parker and non-profit partners provide a pair to someone in need. Warby Parker is also one of the only carbon-neutral eyewear brands worldwide, which should definitely appeal to you environmentalists a bit! A do good company providing stylish eyewear at an affordable price.. What more could you want?



The collection features:

DOWNING: in Striped Sassafras
A quirky take on a classic silhouette 


DEAN: in English Oak and Striped Olive
A classic go anywhere/wear with anything shape


HALL: in Cherry Blossom and Whiskey Tortoise 
A stronger, rectangular shape in a unique pop of colour


MINNIE: in Eucalyptus and Striped Sassafras
An oversized round shape in colours perfect for day to day


PIPER: in Revolver Black and Woodland Tortoise 
A classic silhouette meets subtle cat-eye for an everyday bold


My favourite from the collection would either be the Minnie in Striped Sassafras or Piper in Revolver Black. I really love the subtle cat-eye on the Piper and you know I love my black! With the Minnie, it is quite possibly one of my favourite silhouettes in sunglasses in terms of what looks good on my face shape, so this is one I would purchase in every colour!
But honourable mention to the Hall in Cherry Blossom; the pop of colour is too cute not to mention, and the perfect way to add some colour for the transition to Spring/Summer.

The collection is now available on the Warby Parker website. Feel free to leave me a comment down below letting me know your favourites from the collection, and if you pick a pair up tag me on instagram (@LBECHKOS17) so I can check em out :) xLB

I also just wanted to say, I was really fascinated with Warby Parkers Annual Report, which I found in a Forbes article here. From the business student in me, a lot of work was put into this and it shows. A very innovative way to present information that can often be boring and seemingly repetitive, Warby Parker makes it fun and interesting.

9 Feb - NYFW || AW14 RTW 03

Victoria Beckham
I love how everything was black and white.. so effortless chic, and so me. The gold chains were a nice detailing. I really liked the transition from the boxy/crisp/tailored outfits, to the loose/flowy dresses. Victoria does phenomenal evening wear, so I was quite pleased to see how many pieces she showed for that category. 


Thakoon
What I really loved about this collection was the silky pyjamas as clothes look. Again, we are seeing my favourite, the cobalt blue. Once again, we're seeing plenty of knitwear alongside sheer and/or silky fabrics, and lots of layering.

Diane Von Furstenberg
I love the pattern on pattern shown in a few looks, and I also loved the classic DVF silhouettes. I also really enjoyed the entire gold segment; such beautiful garments. As always, great to see the wrap dress.
