Et Tu? How to Wear the New Leather Midi...

How to Wear the New Leather Midi

This faux leather midi skirt had been gazing up at me bewitchingly from various Tu at Sainsbury's AW14 magazine ads for some time, so I was overjoyed to unwrap it on my birthday a couple of weeks ago, along with this embroidered mustard tee and "Gok" peplum jumper - the perfect new season 2-in-1 weatherproof ensemble, c/o Mummy Muses! With its versatile matte finish and vintage-style extra-long midi cut, I'm pretty sure this little gem will become one of my AW staples, accompanied by faux furs, fedoras and boots, but, for now, I wanted to take the opportunity to showcase my long-wished-for Matalan lace-up heels (which also fortuitously made their way into my birthday haul)... so gorgeous, I can barely believe their £22 price tag!

Mallzee Must-Haves (or 3 Ways to Wear a Fedora)

A little while ago, a little birdie told me about Mallzee, a personal shopping app which gathers the wares from tons of top online, high street and designer outlet brands together for your retail pleasure... Disclaimer: it's a tiny bit addictive. You can customise your browsing by brand, item type, colour and budget (as well as tapping in specific search terms yourself), save and share your faves, and even receive alerts the minute anything from your wishlist drops in price so you can snap it up on the spot! Genuinely probably as close to carrying a teeny tiny personal stylist in your pocket as is currently possible...

In fact, if you're having trouble ticking any troublesome items off your AW14 must-have list, I defy you not to find them on here, whether you're still desperately seeking the perfect pink coat (or you've turned to tangerine instead)...

or a touch of tartan is more your bag/umbrella/hairband...

So... just for fun*, I decided to bring a few of my must lust-have Mallzee finds together to create fantasy outfits representing three of the key looks I'm championing this season: '70s folk, the triple check and vintage winter pastels (fedora-fest entirely unintentional... just. could. not. resist...)

'70s Folk

Yep, the over-the-knee boot is back... and I am itching to give mine a bondage-to-boho makeover with a folky smock-style frock like this one...


Just Triple Checking (Again...)

Always on the lookout for new ways to mix and match my favourite prints and pieces, I loved the idea of layering this tartan blanket cape over a checked crombie coat, throwing them over clean-cut, relaxed separates to max out the effortlessly chic borrowed-from-the-boyfriend vibe...


Vintage Winter Pastels

Dress: Glamorous, Jumper: Miss Selfridge, Hat and Coat: Both River Island, Boots: The Outnet (All via Mallzee)

It may be autumn, but, on Mallzee as on the catwalks, florals continue to bloom, and pastels to proliferate... The perfect pairing to embrace when getting involved in this season's '60s love-in, with a roll-neck layered underneath your mini-shift and duster coat to keep out the chills... and, yep, thanks to the powers of Mallzee, I even found a pastel fedora to tie in with this look... time to say goodbye/hello to the winter blues!


Have you tried Mallzee? Which trends are you trademarking this season?

Check, Check... Check

Crazy coat lady has officially returned... please allow me to introduce you to new A/W coat 2 of 5 (so far). Well, you wait years for an affordable midi cover-up and then 2 come along at once, what's a girl to do, eh? This boyfriend-style houndstooth crombie looks and feels so high-end - it's an absolute steal at £35... Luckily enough for me, this was actually a surprise birthday present, but, if it hadn't been, it would still have gone straight into my basket on my next Primark dash! Since, as you may have noticed, I can never resist an opportunity to double, or, if at all possible, triple check, I had to try it out with my new gingham dirndl skirt for starters...
