Ages ago I owned a white wool coat, I believe from Topshop. It was a very structured minimal design, with a zipper, and I looked ever so smart in it. I really loved that coat. The downside was of course that it was white and even the slightest of stains or marks stood out on it like a sore thumb. And unless you have a huge dry cleaner budget that alone makes a coat like that very impractical.
I ordered this as a back-up dress for a special occasion that takes place today and fell in love with it the minute I put it on.
I have just two things to say this morning:
This blazer from Mango is to die for. I actually bought it with the trousers but as you can tell from the third photo: the model, most likely a not too shabby 1.80 m tall, is actually standing on the hems. So you can imagine what the trousers looked like on my 1.69 m frame. Seriously Mango, what is up with that??
I have been on a dress hunt recently because I wanted a few more dresses for city wear, as opposed to the many floaty dresses I have that I am more comfortable with wearing during a holiday. And I actually made a few great purchases in the ‘going to be wearing these for years to come’ category plus there are a few more on their way as we speak. I have sent loads back to be honest, so while my ordering may seem out of control I actually only end up with the ones I am really confident about.
First I thought ‘Oh yes!’, then I felt ‘Not so sure now…’.
So happy to have added this nude leather beauty to my collection.
Now this looks good: Mango’s new Committed collection.
I confess I have absolutely no need nor use for this cutie.
