12 beautiful winter coats to grab in the sale

Have you grabbed some serious bargains in the sale? I got a pair of boyfriend jeans and a pair of black sequin leggings for 5 euros each. It wasn’t planned but it certainly made my day! Since a good quality winter coat can be expensive, sale are a great time to grab a beautiful one from your favourite designer for a third of the price so I’ve rounded up 12 beautiful winter coats to get in the sale and some are up to 60% OFF. Enjoy!

15 ISABEL MARANT MUST-HAVES IN THE SALE

15 Isabel Marant Must-haves in the Sale

As you know, I’m a huge fan of Isabel Marant‘s style (I love her workplace too!). I have pieces I bought at full price and others I found on websites that sell pre-owned luxury fashion like Vestiaire Collective, Vide-Dressing and sometimes Ebay. The key things to bear in mind when buying an Isabel Marant must-have or for any pieces from your favourite Designer, are: Buy it because it fits your style and personality (I don’t like everything she does or neither does everything suits my body shape, so choose wisely. Work out the cost-per-wear (Total cost of the item/ estimated number of days you’ll wear it = the cost per wear). I live in my wedged sneakers in Winter time and in my Dickers boots in Summer time so the cpw is pretty low compared to the pair of high-heels I would wear less. Try the outfit in shop first to work out your size so once the Sale is on, you know exactly what outfit and size to get. Be patient and enjoy the process. Personally I draw more satisfaction from adding a key piece …

Monday's must-have: overcoat with animal print

Monday’s must-have

Quick one before I head to the train station for a week in Paris…Each winter season, I’m attracted to animal print coats and this year, I’m loving the rock vibe of this one. I had a coup de coeur on this cape too. Teamed with leather leggings and a pair of Stan Smith, Isabel Marant Bobby sneakers, you are good to go!! What do you think?

Monday’s must-have

Following your feedback on the reader survey, I’m starting a new feature…well actually re-visiting an one old as the majority of you enjoy these fashion posts and others want more of the Get the Look with prices. The Monday must-have one will be short and sweet, focusing on one thing, one style, one look…not necessarily fashion, sometimes it will be interiors but it will be short, inspiring and uplifting and that’s all we want on a Monday morning. Let me know if you like it…

The best jumpsuits

I LOVE jumpsuits and one of my favourite jumpsuits this season, was this black jumpsuit by French label BA&SH for La Redoute, which is currently 40% off, yeah! I also love these leather wedge ankle boots and their  dinner jacket (30% off) if you’re looking for an alternative to the Isabel Marant blazer but let me show my round-up of the best black jumpsuits.

outfit of the day: fake fur & converse

Fake fur, converse & sparkle

Ok so yesterday it rained from 7am to 2pm non-stop and I pretty much hang out in my PJs during the same timeframe and gosh did it feel good to do this! So back to getting dressed…Today’s look pretty much sums up the mood…wrapped up in faux-fur ready for work with a touch of “can it still be the weekend” converse…

4 ways with J. Crew basics

Once upon a time (before motherhood), I was going to New-York every two years and one of my fav’ US shops to visit was J. CREW so last year, when we went as a family, Mila and I went on a shopping trip and got lots of gorgeous things for her including a pair of New Balance we couldn’t find in the UK. Now, J. CREW has 4 stores in London and a fantastic website that ships everywhere. If you’re not familiar with the brand and the fabulous Jenna Lyons, check out these four basics: 1. THE WHITE SHIRT (the one featured below is the Bib popover)

The best winter coats at 30% off

I got my new coat from this last post (and sadly not with 30% off) but while doing my research, I saw some nice ones at Mango. As they are now offering 30% OFF until 22nd October on their coats and sweatshirts, I thought I would share the ones I liked before they sell out. Even if the weather is not cold yet, it’s always a good idea to get your Winter coat early in the season because by the time, you really need that new, warm coat to face up the cold weather, all the good ones will be gone!My top 3 favourites include this faux shearling lined coat worn by Daria (photo 2), this belted wool blend coat (photo 3) which is very classy and the straight cut bouclé coat (photo 4). You can see my whole selection below by clicking on the arrow left of right and once you click on the image, it will take you direct to the product page. I also chose a few sweatshirts that would be perfect for last week …
