Winter Lady

Saturday marked a momentous occasion for me - my first autumn/winter purchase. I've always preferred winter's sartorial offerings and have even been known to rip endless pages out of my precious magazine collection for my annual winter coat countdown! My most recent purchase, however, was a camel coloured cable knit sweater - perfect teamed with my Acne high waisted jeans and brogues in the city or over a tea dress with thick socks and my wellies for long walks at the seaside (see The Edge of Love for inspiration!) My winter wishlist includes some new suede ankle boots (I'm still dreaming of those suede Isabel Marant boots from a gazillion seasons ago), a camel coloured coat (Celine would be nice but Zara will do!) a navy blue blazer, a blue oxford shirt and some cropped wool trousers. All topped off with some samples of the new Burberry makeup collection. What's on your winter wishlist?

  2. I love your winter choices! Besides, I also prefer winter sartorially speaking to summer.

  3. The sweater sounds very nice. My wishlist is pretty much exactly the same as yours!

  6. I like the last picture, very grace kelly. I don't get a true winter so I don't really make seasonal wish-lists. I'm happy to say I'm officially covered in the navy blazer department: a DB with gold buttons and a single breast with silver buttons.

  7. Isabel Marant still does those boots (if you mean the little ankle ones). You'll find them in the rue Jacob boutique on your move to Paris...

  8. I'm also into the French wardrobe concept as of late. And I'm coming to France for 3 wks tomorrow. Hurahhhh!!!! That asides, I just wanna ask if you have found THE navy blue blazer. You know, the one that look almost like Balmain but with a different price tag ...
