Lack of Color Montana pink dusk wide brim fedora / Cameo Wrap It Up ivory jacket and First Fires shell skirt from FSHNBNKR / Pastel pink bag with chain strap - similar here and here / Ballettonet Animale leopard print pony hair flats 

On an overclouded evening like yesterday's 24 degrees, I dipped into saccharine shell shades that bridged the way to pink on my lips, and linked the story full circle with leopard on my toes. The last time I was this tickled pink, I still had sinless straight fringe.

All the same, I'm still into being blushed out and this fabulous skirt had more to do with its actual practicality than any sartorial fantasy. Like my favourite blanket cape, this swishy number seamlessly worked with everything from a cropped bralet rimmed with romantic lace to a wrap jacket that tied marvellously at the waist.

In confidence, I can safely conclude this one's a winner.

And I'm off to Bali! Cue the onslaught of square snapshots.

Certainly, we marvel at the contemporary glamour, luxury factor and unparalleled designs of the tremendous Gucci house. Who could ever overlook the jewel tone gowns that were ornately embellished with glossy beads and splendid feathers circa 2011, or the quiet collection of neutrals that showed two years ago which starred a prominent black number that had ruffles outlining a completely bare back. 

The Gucci Première is no exception, and as far I'm concerned, it ticks every box. There is a perfect balance of power and sensuality, with top notes of celebratory orange blossom and bergamot giving way to the scent's core nestle of white flowers laced with a modern musk. Finally, the bouquet is layered over a beguiling cocktail of warm balsamic woods and a smoky leather base.

Let me put it to you this way, nothing revives grandeur like a Gucci Première.

Happy Valentine's Day!
