SO THE LAST BLOG WAS ALL ABOUT BIKINIS AND BEACH COVER UPS ....... FOR THOSE OF YOU NOT LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE FLYING OFF TO A LOVELY HOT CLIMATE , ITS FLIPPING FREEZING!!! SO THIS BLOG IS DEDICATED TO ALL THINGS COSY! COATS, HATS, SCARVES, JUMPERS - WE HAVE THIS ONE COVERED. PERSONALLY, WE LOVE WINTER DRESSING MORE THAN SUMMER. FIRST AND FOREMOST, IF YOU HADN'T NOTICED, ONE OF US (MEL) HAS AN UNHEALTHY ANIMAL FUR OBSESSION WHICH CAN ONLY BE UTILISED IN THE COLDER MONTHS (ALTHOUGH she does OF COURSE HAVE A LEOPARD PRINT BIKINI).... ANYWAY, BECAUSE we HAVE TO REALISE THAT NOT EVERYBODY SHARES our ANIMAL OBSESSION, we SHALL PROMISE TO KEEP THIS ONE ANIMAL FREE!*
LET'T START WITH COATS - ZARA HAVE JUST ABOUT ALL BASES COVERED - LEOPARD(SORRY!), CAMOFLAGE, PATCHES, STRUCTURED CLASSIC WOOL, PARKAS, PUFFAS, MILTARY STYLE THERE REALLY IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE AND WITH MOST OF THEM UNDER £100 THERE REALLY IS NO NEED TO STOP AT ONE! THE QUALITY IS ACTUALLY GREAT AND FOR HIGH FASHION - THERE REALLY IS NO POINT SPENDING HUNDREDS OF POUNDS BECAUSE CHANCES ARE, NEXT SEASON YOU WILL WANT new coat or two.
who has seen the incredible knitwear on offer from gucci this season - holy moly its out of this world.... sequins and stripes, animal embellishments - the jumpers are literally to die for. of course the high street is hot on the heels and have produced some pretty damn good gucci inspired pieces. in fact, last week, for research purposes, we went into forever 21. i say for research purposes because quite frankly, as much as we think we are still 16, we are in fact forty somemthing mothers and as far as we were concerned, forever 21 really is aimed at those under 16. now don't get us wrong, 95% of it would look fab on my friends daughters, but hanging on a rail, was this one jumper that literally screamed Gucci ......so i thought what the hell -try it on ...... let me tell you its totally fab, fits beautifully and looks a darn sight more expensive than the £19 price tag suggests. andotherstories is a great one for knits, and as well as the plainer basics, they have some really super statement knitweaer that could even pass muster for a saturday night out!
we are about to be hit with a super cold spell, so get shopping and get cosy! xx
