An all too rare child-free night out and only 15 minutes to get ready.
I could have done with borrowing some of Belinda’s jewels (not to mention doing something with my hair), but my inner minimalist was actually quite happy with this outfit. The photos were taken on my return, hence the rather crumpled look.
I enjoyed wearing my new coat soooo much. I usually dislike clashing hemlines but the coat and dress felt good together. Perhaps it was the lightness of the silk skirt against the wool? I love the print on the dress.
The Topshop pleathers are really very good indeed. I bought a regular size 6. The length isn’t bad but I wish I’d got the petite version to iron out some of the creases at the knees. I’ve ordered a petite pair in a size 4 to try (the only petite size left) – highly optimistic of me, it’s unlikely I’ll be able to get them past my ankles!
And the shoes. How I adore these shoes. The heels are 5 inches high with a 1 inch platform. I bought them in the NAP sale a couple of years ago and they’re very very comfortable. I should wear them more often.
The COS treggings I bought recently have had to go back. They started to bobble after just a few wears – not good for £79. COS customer service, however, was excellent with a no hassle return.
