- felted wool biker jacket (probably the toast one) - flat ankle boots, yet to be found, but probably chelsea boots, lace up DM type boots or maybe ankle biker boots - leather leggings (I WILL find some that aren't black that are actually within my budget) - Oversized cashmere/merino sweater or sweater dress
Well, I just cleared out my wardrobe (moth related issues and general "I'm so OVER these clothes" clearout) so I'm getting new stuff (at some point) and want to do it right, get good quality that suits me and fits rather than random crap that I begrudge wearing.
- New Coat. I want something tailored, in black, that's very warm and is not polyester - 2/3 skirts that are knee length. Maybe one pencil, one a-line and one other - 2xpolo neck jumper for when I can't be arsed - berry coloured round-neck jumper (I'm all about round neck jumpers this year) - high heeled boots - nice heels.
The blazer was from New look!! Really good fit too and was only £35! not on their website im afraid but its the best blazer ive found, Ive been looking for about 4-5 months now at all prices and what do you know.....New look!
The tops I have are simple ones like This I have them in Navy Blue, Plum. Teal and Dark Green, I wear them with my tweed skirt, brown/black/burgundy or grey tights, a chuncky knit scarf thats brown, diamond earrings,simple but pretty make up and some times a necklace and when ever I go out like it, I look plain and simple but well put together and Im always complimented : )
Hopefully I have just invested in some DM's as I like you was on the hunt. In the end I found them in tkmaxx for a bargain £35 so that sorted my dilemma. Hasn't stopped me looking at others though.... Seems I'm never happy.
I just had my new next catalogue arrive today and I'm actually liking a fair amount of this seasons items!
I got a Melton Military coat (double breasted) in the Jigsaw sale. No idea why they'd put it in the end-of-summer sale but I'm not complaining - it is luffly, perfect fit and colour for me, and 139 quid is a good price for a wool (mix) coat. I plan to wear it until the temperature drops down to North Face levels.
This A/W I think I shall mostly be wearing: Tweed shorts and black opaques Teal cashmere jumper wine coloured skinnys fitted denim shirt beige stripe breton top black boucle jacket black heeled ankle boots (still looking for right pair) black parka coat
