Fit & Flare

For me, the perfect winter coat is double-breasted, belted, knee-length, fitted and flared

I think Armani Exchange read my thoughts and released this in their Fall collection

They call it the ‘fit and flare’ wool coat. Perfectly fitted at the top, and like a dress at the bottom

Boots – M&S. Cashmere Top – Zara. Tights – H&M.

Autumn

Autumn is finally kicking in and I am most likely the only person skipping happily down the road as a result.

Now I get to wear jackets, boots, tights, wool dresses……an entire new wardrobe is on my horizon!

And yes, in case you were wondering Robbie insisted I stand in front of this ‘cool retro’ bike for the shoot.

Skirt – Shanghai boutique, top – Zara, Jacket – Zara, Boots – Mango Touch

Black Leather

I know it’s been ages since my last post, but I have been in Shanghai! I did buy some wonderful treasures which will be featured soon, so hopefully, worth the wait. In the meantime, here is my gorgeous new leather jacket

Bomber Jacket – GStar Raw

Did I mention there is a three-story GStar store in Shanghai? Did I mention my credit card melted in that same store?

Jeans – GStar – zipper collection. I just love the back pocket detail

Suede Boots – Mango Touch

DKNY Tweed

This jacket was love at first sight. On sale. And the only size 4. Talk about dropping a pay-check! In my defense  I don’t mind splurging on statement pieces that will never go out of style. The cut, length and material is classic.

It literally goes with everything! I tried it with loafers and a black skirt. Totally works. There was a matching tweed mini skirt but my credit card had steam coming off it.I can’t find the exact jacket online, but this one is similar

The unique feature is the black paneling on the inside sleeves. It actually creates a smaller back & waist form behind.

Corduroy

A classic cream corduroy jacket never goes out of style…
