Ok, so I may have shamelessly reappropriated the name of Burberry’s AW13 show for this post title but given that the look du jour in question involved a trench coat and a heart jumper I reckon Christopher Bailey would understand… If he ever found out which, let’s be honest, is beyond unlikely. The man responsible for restoring Burberry to its former glory and then some has far more important things to think about than my shameless pilfering of his ideas but anyway, I digress. March (AKA the first month of Spring) is here so no matter how abismal the weather I refuse to carry on wearing my winter coat. I donned this ensemble for my first EVER personal styling appointment last Friday. Given that someone had put the fate of their wardrobe in my hands it seemed only right I looked both chic and seasonally appropriate, the day seemed to go really well so I assume this look did the trick. Admittedly I did get pretty chilly tramping around town in the pouring rain sans socks and fear the ballet pumps/bare feet situation might result in my developing a case of gangrene. If the British weather continues refusing to comply with the fashion seasons quite this dramatically I may have to swap my beloved London for sunnier climbs, or accept spending the rest of my days with a perma-cold… tough call.
In other news, I now officially offer personal styling services so if you, or anyone you know, fancy a major wardrobe overhaul or just a bit of styling advice contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Love Ella. X
Ps) Since writing the point it has started snowing and I’ve been forced to dig out my winter coat, fur hat and thermals… Boo.
