Biker Girl



Topshop Petite Faux Leather Biker (regular size version here)
Isabel Marant Etoile Shirt (old)
Forever21 Khakis (old) (nice alternative here)
Swedish Hasbeens (old)


That little biker up there? It's the most perfect fitting biker jacket I have ever tried on in my life. The sleeves are not too long nor are they too tight, the back is not too short and I can even fasten it up. It also doesn't pouff up near the chest area where some jackets are shaped to accommodate a bosom. And for a faux leather jacket, it's a rather good one I have to say. 

However. 

It squeaks. Yes it does. Squeak, squeak, squeak. I squeak like a mouse when I move. Hmmm.

I've read the reviews on the Topshop site (I wish all stores had a place where people could leave reviews as these are extremely helpful) and my jacket is not a one off. They do squeak apparently but the noise will disappear. So there is hope. 

But now I'm in a quandary. Do I keep and wear with the hope of the squeak disappearing? Or hold tight for the ultimate non squeaking perfect fit biker (preferably real leather)? I'm not sure one exists out there for little old me! :(

Quick OOTD : 26/09/16 Night Music




Mango Jacket (old but alternative here)
Bella Freud Jumper (ss16 but current season here)
Adidas Stan Smith Luxe


A very kind lady contacted me in June to let me know the Bella Freud Night Music jumper was on sale in Selfridges after I'd left a comment on her Instagram in February saying how much I loved it. 

Me? I was on it like a car bonnet!


-------------------------------

Last Note :

  • Incase you're wondering about the fit of the Bella Freud jumpers, I'm wearing a size small and I'm a size 10 and the jumpers are quite long in the body. Well they are if you're a shortie like me.
  • I've previously had a Bella Freud jumper in a medium but had to sell that on as it was a touch too big. There wasn't much in it though but you know yourself what feels right.

Accessorize Ronnie Camera Bag






Ronnie's just joined my bag family. He's kind of a lovely deep red with a mock croc finish. Not too big, not too small. If you like, you can even buy extra funky bag straps for him and his family. Family? Oh yes, there are a whole bunch of Ronnies out there. There's a blue one, black one, tan one, leopard one and of course my lovely deep red one. A veritable little bag family all living here. And to add to their charm, you can even buy interchangeable funky bag straps (here) to jazz them up a little. 

Cool.

Starry Starry Jeans



Kate in her Stella's.


That woman up there in the funky jeans? That's Kate from Wearsmymoney. That woman makes me want to go all rock chick and wear crazy ass star printed jeans. Her jeans are Stella McCartneys which are available here. Me, I can't afford Stella's but I can afford New Look. 

Question is. I can afford them. 

But have I got the guts to wear them? #notascoolasKate

  • To get 20% off, the code MAGIC20 appears to be working on full priced items on the New Look site.

Quick OOTD : 18/09/16 Mules




F&F Culottes (old but good alternative here)
Tula Bag (old)
Next Tan Mules (old but these are nice and I also have them as well)


Just thought I'd try again with my tan mules which I first posted here. They don't seem as wibbly wobbly as last year.

Strange that.

Merci Beaucoup!




H&M Shorts (old)


Bonjour!

Il fait trop chaud, aujourd'hui. Je pensais que je porterais mon nouveau tee-shirt de La Redoute.

C'est tout.

Merci Beaucoup!   :)

-----------------------------

Last Note :

  • Pardonnez the French. It was all Google Translate's doing.
  • The tee is a lovely soft organic cotton and is true to size. I loved it as soon as I tried it on. 
  • I'm a size 10 wearing a size 10/12 which is comfy and non-clingy.
  • There is also a stripy version available here and a sweatshirt available here.
  • The code 25DEL will give you 25% off and free delivery currently.

Move Along



Isabel Marant Etoile Blouse (old but nice alternative here)
H&M Skirt (old but nice alternative here)
The Jacksons Bag (old but available here)
Hobbs NW3 Sandals (old but Saltwaters are a nice alternative)


Nothing new here. All old. Move Along.

But seriously if you have some good basics which don't really date, they can come in to their own year after year. Saves a bit of money too! :)

Last Note :

  • If I didn't have mine, I'd probably have this one in my wardrobe!
