Still Here...

Merry Christmas all! I really think I need to make blogging more one of my New Years resolutions....

I have very rarely posted streetstyle shots of myself, I find it so hard to take flattering photos with the self timer, but thanks to iPhones + changing room mirrors, hopefully I can start taking more.

Here is what I basically wear everyday. COS wool peacoat, Topshop jeans, Isabel Marant booties and Vanessa Bruno cabas. The weather has been so awful recently it has been more about survival than style but I love how a great coat can make a look.
Throughout this year I have kept a list of every item of clothing I have bought, and reading it back now is fairly depressing. While I've never been someone to even step foot in Primark, let alone come out with bags full of disposable goods, I am still a bit disappointed! My wardrobe has had so many gaps that I had to buy stop gap pieces, rather than investments. That trend certainly has changed since I got a job, and towards the end of this year I have been able to buy some things that I will love and wear forever. So, I want to continue doing this. I will do a post with a list of the key items I want to buy next year and I'm going to keep the number to around 10 and try very hard to stick to that!

French Girl Essentials

Once again I have been a terrible blogger, so thank you to everyone who visits daily in the hope that I might actually have updated! This will be just a quick one but I promise more interesting posts to come.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that I am obsessed with the Parisian way of dressing. One item above all has become ubiquitous with all things chic and Paris, and that is the Vanessa Bruno sequin cabas. Spotted on the arms of every self-respecting French girl, I can now finally say I have bought my own piece of that cool.

Meet my cabas, bought at the brand new Vanessa Bruno boutique in London. I love it! Although it has no zip which bothers me slightly, it does have a sizable zip pocket - big enough to secure away the essentials. Plus it is great for this time of the year when you need a healthy supply of warm layers at hand at all times.
