Broadly speaking, shopaholics and clothes obsessives tend to fall in to certain catagories depending on their sartorial poison of choice. For some people that irresistable item is a beautiful pair of shoes, for others it’s a delicious new handbag. Well, as much as I adore (and frequently purchase) shoes and handbags my real fashion addiction has to be blouses. Surprised? Given the number of them that crop up in my outfit posts, I doubt it. Every time I return from a shopping trip, meeting, lunch date or visit to the dentist with yet another new blouse my friends and family dispair but what can I say? When I spy a Peter Pan collared chiffon number in the window of Whistles, I’m simply powerless to resist.

After investing in what must be roughly my 30th blouse this afternoon, I got to thinking about fashion addictions and after a spot of internet browing came to the conclusion that even the most stylish dressers around have that one particular piece they just can’t get enough of. So in the interest of relieving post-purchase guilt over my weakness for all things blousey, I decided to expose a few celebrity fashion addictions. Admitedly not quite as juicy as the Kate Moss cocaine scandal but hey, it made me feel better.

Fashion Addiction: Brogues
Name: Olivia Palermo

If this doesn’t wipe away the shame factor from the repeat purchases that, let’s be honest, we’re all guilty of making then I don’t know what will. Now I’ve admitted mine and exposed theirs’ only one question remains… What’s YOUR fashion addiction?
Love Ella. X
