My new Mango maxi flap jacket is here, and after much deliberation (always the way when its a different “look” to what I am used to), I’ve worn it and loved it. Although it is buttery soft leather that scratches easily. So I might be careful where and with whom I wear it. At least until the littlest Bolters stop using me as a climbing frame and trampoline…
Its maybe not the best cut for me, BUT it is lovely and is far more interesting than this Oasis leather jacket I was also looking at. The Oasis one might be the “smarter” choice, but the Mango one is the one I love.
When I went to Mango to return the dress I had ordered with the jacket, I saw these beautiful pony skin and leather ankle boots (£100).
And these terrific earrings from the Touch range (often some really beautiful pieces) (£20):
Website photo as its hard to see the detail in my photos:
The one thing I was struck by when I went to Mango, is just how much stuff they have. Too much stuff. Which makes it quite hard to search through. And there are so many things they could edit out of their collection, or improve upon, though. This fake fur gilet (£60), for example: crackly, dry fur. Hopefully they will limit / edit their brand in the future, as some of it is excellent, but it takes some searching to find it.
Doesn’t it look terrific, plush and glossy in the website photo, though?! So hit and miss!
Anyway, time to head off to another children’s birthday party… Rock on, Reader!
