Old flame

One could chit chat about oversized volumes, clashing textures, or contrasting hues. But that would be old hat. So instead, this shall be an ode to Topshop. We were on a break you see for a while seeing as it seemed to have set its sights on dressing the cool kids of East-London in 90s-infused, festival-worthy, colour-binging ready-to-wear. Which I used to swear by, but sort of grew out of when I realised I just looked like a cookie-cutter. Not that I ooze originality today (case in point: baggy leather, everyone is at it!) .. but at least I stopped looking like a 15-something teenage clone. Which is fine for when you are trying to navigate your way through those traumatic high-school years, but expires as soon as you you no longer qualify for the 10% student discount. This story has a happy ending, I promise. We fell back in love, and I have been embracing its many offspring ever since. And to celebrate our newfound love, here's a family portrait: me with  cocoon coat and waffle knit. I should introduce you, you would definitely get along too! C'est beau l'amour..

I'm wearing a Topshop cocoon coat (in a size 10) , tapered leather trousers by Mango, a LNA clothing slouchy tee under a Topshop waffle knit (or here) and Mango wedges. The earrings are House of Waris at MyTheresa

  22. ADORE the cocoon shape, texture and colour of that coat. I haven't been paying much attention to Topshop for similar reasons as you, but might just have to rekindle the flame! xx em

  28. Haha, je savais que ce manteau était parfait, mais pas comme sur l'image, parfait comme toi tu le portes, en "trop grand".

  29. I on the other hand refuse to wear anything by Mango (since I bought leather bag of them last year in Barcelona which fell apart before we even landed back to Amsterdam and it was on top of their range!)

    But then, looking ta your trousers, I might change my mind again:)

    your posts are refreshing in the overcrowded world of fashion bloggers btw
