One of the promises I made myself when I started WIT was that I was never going feature anything I wouldn't recommend buying or buy myself, though admittedly sometimes that is in a distant won-the-lottery fantasy world! I see a lot of amazing clothes, bags and shoes and resisting the temptation is at time is really hard. Recently I found myself lusting after some of the clothes I used in my shopping pages and some that I wore in my shoots, so today I thought I would highlight some tried and tested items that I have invested in... and I'm afraid that from the March issue there will be more!
It was love at first sight with these Sophia Webster shoes from my January Style Essay, but at full price they were well beyond my reach. I bagged them at a sale and cannot wait for the weather to get better to start wearing them with everything from pencil skirts to frayed jeans. Sophia Webster shoes £180.00
One of the things I love about fashion is that it's fun and experimental, six months ago I didn't think I would like to wear a bomber jacket but as I was compiling Red's "Try something new" page for the January issue, I fell in love with this wool navy bomber jacket which I suggest to pair with a feminine dress or a statement skirt.
I loved the jeans I wore for our February denim challenge, especially the ankle skimming length and the comfy fit which makes them perfect for my Friday's with Greta and week ends. Finding a pair of jeans that look good on me (I'm short and everything is a bit long on me) is a holy grail so I had to make the investment. GENETIC DENIM The Shya skinny mid-rise jeans £255.00
