Losing Love For My Longchamp

I don't know why but I have recently been going off of my Longchamp Le Pliage bag. I think it's because now that I have one (two actually - is that excessive?), I've been noticing them everywhere. And while not everything I own has to be individual and one-of-a-kind, I would like to see less than five a day.  The problem I have is that it is such a good size for all the crap I carry around and I just can't find an affordable, suitable replacement handbag.

I'd quite like a Le Pliage like this white, Dessinee embroidered one. Featuring original designs by French illustrator Robert Wagt, they are quite intricate and a lot less likely to be seen on the arms of others during the daily commute. I also saw a girl on the tube with one embroidered with a cityscape and that was pretty cool too. Like I said, I really like the shape of the bag and the larger one I have is really handy for weekends or nights away. I think what really killed it for me was walking behind a woman who the exact one I had and it was quite embarrassing.

Christmas Preparation

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Been busy at work and preparing myself for Christmas etc.. And in preparation I have been buying alpine/fairisle knits like nobody's business. I don't know why I've gone so crazy for them. I think it's the super cold weather and they make me think of cosiness. Plus D&G made them look sexy as hell this A/W.

This Primark jumper (right) reminded me of the  D&G jumper-dress and it kinda worked but it made my skin so itchy I had to return it.

Such a cute print.

I'm even warming to the yeti boots a little bit.

I love the knitted jumpers with the flowing floral skirts or trousers. The contrast in textures is really interesting for winter.

Elle's Mademoiselle in D&G. Love it!


I love this Primark Skirt.

  My new Accessorize tramp gloves (I'm sure that's not the technical term) are the best.
