This set was inspired by a day spent at work pretending to be Miranda Priestley’s assistant and an ongoing Ebay war over a similar looking monochrome faux fur jacket.
I love the sleeveless turtleneck (been an ongoing advocate for them since mid September) and need it in my life. The folds and cut of the turtleneck gives it an edge of modernism, which I adore, adore, adore!
Same can be said for the style of the leather skirt, I’ve been a fan of asymmetrical design for quite some time now – Ever since I set eyes on my first Alexander McQueen mullet dress to be precise. Ricardo Tisci has revolutionized Givenchy and I pay ode to him in this post for the leather skirt which came into being through his guiding hand. (Thank you Ricardo, grazie mille!)
The boots are a favourite because,well, they’re pretty and who could attest to their practicality in these cold grey times that we call Winter? Also how many pairs of heeled boots would count as too many? (I may just own too many)
The faux coat I wasn’t too sure about pairing with the rest of the ensemble but I do love it -bidding for one that’s almost exactly like it on Ebay at the moment, fingers crossed I win! I added it on to this set to lend it a bit of quirky youthfulness. I have a tendency to dress older than most my age which often gets me mistaken for being a bit older too. Ah well, who ever said that was a bad thing? Oddly enough I’ve never had a particular liking for Gold jewellery but the bangle and stackable rings are all items that are on my wishlist and the lip colour, which is of a matte plum colouring is one I wear quite a lot. It is so, so lush! (Try it!)
So, these are my Wednesday wants, what are yours?
Hope everyone’s having a good week so far!**

I adore the alternate faux fur colour scheme this girl was wearing, the light blue and the pastel peach stole went well together and served as my route of escape from one of the promoters outside Shepherd’s Bush station. The reason as to why people adore the (in my own words) dreaded Winter season has always evaded me but I think I may be starting to realise the basis for their ardour. These cold, cold months give rise to fashion that we otherwise keep under wraps, rise to the layers and fabrics that stay silent during the warmer months. Recently I’ve been quite taken aback by the fur trend  (faux of course). My primary coat for this season is faux fur itself and I wouldn’t want it any other way, it’s the Brown version of this coat by M&S and I am honestly in love. It keeps me super toasty and looking on point haha.

What’s your winter coat like? I’d love to know xo
