Sales Sales Sales

Have you picked up any great finds this 'Black Friday'?

I find myself gravitating towards investment pieces and anything black.  A good rule of thumb to use when shopping is 'would French vogue editors wear this?'

Black merino wool jumper - GAP, the softest leather skirt - Whistles, suede court shoes - Topshop

Whistles Luxe

Start writing your Christmas wish list as Whistles has a beautiful range of accessories this season and you're going to want them all.

Everything from their collections is so high quality and the designs are timelessly chic.  These pieces will add the perfect amount of understated luxe to any look and will last throughout the seasons.  

If only there was an advent calendar with one of these behind every door....

The All Saints Show

I apologise that it's sometimes a bit like the All Saints show on here.  Every other post proclaims my love for their collections. But can you blame me?

Love love the latest lookbook shots and now have a wishlist as long as my arm...
The lookbooks are great for outfit inspiration too.  Boyish shirts with leather pencil skirts - why didn't I think of that?

Thinking About...Khaki

The khaki shirt - chic when teamed with skirts, skinnies and leather in a French nonchalant way, no?

What else is there to do when you buy a new piece than to consult Pinterest for inspiration on ways to wear.  Inspiration from our favourites - Emmanuelle Alt and Carine Roitfield of course.

If you're interested in joining the khaki shirt party, I just picked up the below from Zara.

Mirror Mirror

I found my dream mirror this weekend in my favourite little home store.  It's surprisingly difficult to find an extra large full length mirror that is simple in a warehouse-chic kind of way. 

If you're based in Manchester, or paying our lovely city a visit at some point, go over to Moth on Burton Road in Didsbury for some gorgeous home pieces.  You won't leave empty handed.
