. NEW REISS ALBERTA NAVY FUR GILET .
A little while ago I had a rather mad moment in Heathrow T5, whether it was the excitement and nerves of the business trip I was flying for, or simply the lure of AW15 collection hanging in the shop fronts, whatever the excuse, I went nuts. I mean actually nuts. I spent my life savings in two hours (not quite, but you get the gist), but the silver lining to this retail madness is that no injuction was issued, which means I flew to Switzerland with a brand new fall wardrobe … featuring these gorgeous black suede Marley booties & Alberta navy fur coat. Not a bad silver lining, right?
I fell immediately in love with both these items in Reiss, and with some serious hard work under my belt, I thought it only right I treated myself. The black suede boots are one of my favourite ever shoes, the perfect classic boot and such a simple way to dress up even the most casual of looks.
Fur gilet’s have always been a weakness of mine, in fact they tend to be my go to winter outer layer, if you’ve read my blog for a while then you’ll remember my collection of fur & suede gilets which frequently made it onto mediarmarmalade.com … so it’s no surprise that the Alberta navy gilet stole my heart at first glance.
So all in all, totally justifiable purchases yet. They’re beautiful, seasonally perfect and classic items i’ll know i’ll get tons of wear out of. Kicking off with this simple work look, teaming my boots & jacket with my COS silk and wool dress. For me, this is winter style perfection.
Do you approve of my new buys? It’s okay to have a retail splurge every now and then right?
