Christmas has come early and bad news for my credit card is that it’s going to get a bit of a beating. Net-a-Porter is offering 15% off the majority of the site for three weeks and I’ve begun to make a dent in my autumn wishlist. This is a roundup of some goodies which are in my basket (or probably in my wardrobe as we speak) or have caught my eye.
Use the code FASHIONFIX at checkout for 15% off (USA shoppers enter FWFASHION for 10% off – not sure why this isn’t as good as over here but it all helps).
First things first, I’m doing everything in my power to move away from wearing gym clothes from morning to night and I’ve really loved wearing midi skirts with a knit top (holla at Marks & Spencer cashmere). My favourite skirt picks are below and I’ve so far ordered Georgia Alice’s liquid silver skirt and Max Mara’s classic silk polka dot skirt which will be a game changer with black boots, a sweater and leather jacket. Expect to get completely sick of seeing both.
Another skirt I’ve recently purchased pre-sale is a caramel silk midi from Anine Bing which was pointed out by a very stylish friend and already become a firm favourite.
I’ve been eyeing up these jeans from GRLFRND for a while and decided that it’s finally time to take the plunge. These Karolina jeans tick all the boxes, high waisted, light wash, structured and not spray on skinny.
Next up are my top picks for bags and shoes. I avoided getting the Gucci Marmont Belt Bag (even though its great) as I tend to find that when every Tom, Dick and Harry get something then it doesn’t become as special. That being said, my next favourite belt bag; the Saint Laurent Lou bag is part of the sale and fairly reasonable after the markdown. I love the bordeaux colour which will easily work being worn with jeans and a white t-shirt on the school run or over one of the midi skirts from above. I also adore this mini tobacco bag from Jacquemus and think it is such a versatile and useful piece (again super reasonable after the markdown).
As far as shoes go, I’ve been loving Saint Laurent’s Joplin Boots. These are some seriously kick-ass boots and perfect for day time. These have been on my wishlist for a while which isn’t helped by the fact that they are now 15% off.
Isabel Marant’s Loffen boots are my top pick for the cowboy boot trend this season. I love the white colour for that perfect fresh-out-of-line dancing-class circa 1987 look (if we are going to get specific). The heavy fringing on the side make these a definite yes from me.
Finally for the big ticket items. My favourite dresses have quickly gone out of stock but there are some real gems for the upcoming festive parties. I love this floral Saint Laurent mini dress with sheer black tights to pack a major punch. There’s also Alessandra Rich’s black satin mini dress which I cannot imagine being without. This is by far one of my current favourite dresses.
