This Friday, the following are floating my boat.
1. Zara Fringed Bag
I bought the H&M fringed bag (in pale grey) earlier this year which a number of fellow bloggers have but I returned it as I didn't get on with the gold hardware on it. I also didn't manage to bag (ha ha) the lovely navy and black fringed Zara bag which I saw in the summer as I thought I would wait till the sales and when the sales came, it sold out like that - poof! But look what's just popped in to Zara? I think I just fell in love. This is sexy brown fringed loveliness at it's best. Fringe is in. Fringe on your skirts. Fringe on your jumpers, Fringe on your jackets. So fringe seems to be everywhere. Or are they called tassels?
Up above the streets and houses,
Rainbow flying high,
Everyone can see it smiling - over the sky,
Paint the whole world with a rainbow!
Remember Geoffrey, Zippy, George and Bungle? Yes? You're showing your age then :o)
Anyway, I was looking through one of the Saturday Telegraph supplements and came across an article featuring Lulu Kennedy, the lady behind the company Lulu & Co. Wearing the above jumper with a pair of blue jeans and a pair of funky shoes. Sold. Well it was easy wasn't it? You've got a lady with a grey jumper on, a pair of jeans and a pair of funky shoes? Sounds like me most days albeit not quite as cool and the shoes not so funky! But this is a look I can certainly picture myself wearing with or without funky shoes sipping my Earl Grey sat at home (see previous post). Let's keep playing that lottery!
3. Zara Boots
I tried these on in store and now I have a hankering for them. I think these could be the perfect school run boots! Now these are not for the uber glam people out there but they are perfectly good for the likes of little ol' me who wants to wear a pair of not totally flat boots which I can actually do the school run in. By school run, I don't mean, crash out of the car with the boys in tow, leg it across the road 200 yards and then back in the car again. I mean the proper 15-20 minute one foot in front of the other school run stomp. And back again! My first impressions of these are they are mega. Honestly go in to a store and try them on. Walk around in them. Let your feet be cosseted and caressed by the woolly fleece lining which are going to keep your tootsies so warm. Feel yourself bounce across the floor because of the crepe soles which provides that little bit of extra comfort. And I was thinking that if Acne were to make the low version of their shearling lined Pistols ... I think they would look a lot like these. What say you?
