Part of me wants to shop on ASOS all day and buy bombers and beanies and crop tops... but I think it's time to leave that to the teens.
Plus anyway, I am now loving the labels I never really bought (or could afford) in my teens and twenties; COS, Reiss, Jigsaw, Whistles etc. And also picking up on alternatives to cheaper High Street brands. For example the uber-quirky Monki, which has a shop in Carnaby Street and is also stocked in Selfridges. The reasonable prices always surprise me and still not everyone knows about it. I love their take on fashion - check out the description online of the top I bought as pictured below: "It's all about the back with Ann - the chunky silver zip, and the elegantly shaped opening that allows curious admirers (and dogs with cold noses, bent on surprising someone) access to a bit of the small of your back."
So I am really trying nowadays to buy pieces with a little more longevity (obviously previous post on a Brian Lichtenberg sweat was just a blip in the new-found way of thinking...)
Here are this week's purchases, and not a neon beanie in sight...
|COS top, £45|
|COS silk & knit cardigan, £55, a great alternative to this season's bomber|
|Zara leopard coat, £89|
|Zara sheer check shirt, £25|
|Zara sweat with handy underlay, £25|
|Monki pink shell top, £25|
|Check out the nose hole for a dog!|
|ASOS burgundy chelsea boots, £50|
