Lady Muck of Whitstable might be jokingly known to me as the woman who gave me crabs but Esa Evans is better be recognised as being on the ball when it comes to contemporary UK-based design. I've been following her progress for some time- and I've been really rooting for her ever since the crowdfunding campaign for her metals collection earlier this year. I love seeing creatives succeed.

Using laser cutting techniques on metals, with enamels and beautiful new rose gold pieces too, Lady Muck jewellery has a solid, yet intricate, design that feels weighty and luxurious. It's also surprisingly affordable! When she asked Helen and I if we would like a piece I immediately jumped on the ants. All the ants, any of the ants! I finally settled on this necklace but I was pretty close to choosing the stunning earrings. Or the cuff! Ah! This is a stunning statement piece to wear with anything.

I always think that as the nights draw in we should put away the summer brights and bring out the sparkle instead. For me this usually means numerous sequin numbers. I've had this skirt for about a year but when I pulled it out for this look it still had the tags on. Oops. I'm so bad for taking way too long to decide whether to keep an item I've bought or not (FYI I *always* keep it, don't know why I keep up the charade). This is one of those items I've squirreled away 'until I decide' and had for so long I forgot that I owned it.
The perfect match of my nails and shoes is complete coincidence but it's nice when that happens! The shape of these KG shoes remind me of Manolo Blahniks. I love the buckle-like bow embellishment.
To keep the outfit understated I kept the rest black, and the simple polo neck makes the ants jump out. I'm kinda digging the polo neck (in fact I've bought two more) but it does make my chest look.. well.. noticeable. They may be demurely covered but I'm very aware of their presence in this get up! I think I'll wear my new jumpers as cosy layers under pinafores and cardigans. The high neckline does kind of give me an air of Swedish crime novelist though, doesn't it? Maybe that's why I look so serious in these photos...
