Sturdy, on-trend shades with the high end look on a high street budget? Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? But I reckon I've found them:
I've been hankering after a pair of sunglasses from Le Specs for a while, after spying them on various fashion people, including our Art Director, Polly, at The Fold SS15 campaign shoot. Whilst I will eternally LOVE my Prada sunnies, it's just not practical to wear £100+ shades everyday. What's great about euro-chic brand Le Specs is that their frames are around then £35 price point; so it's not heart wrenching if you loose them / trash them on your travels around town [I'm still mourning a Marc by Marc Jacobs pair lost to summer 2014, sob]. They don't have many physical stockists but ASOS, Shopbop + Jules B all stock the brand.
My caramel-hued trench coat is also new - an ASOS find. It's sold out now, but there are lots of this style on eBay if you're after one. It's made from thick 'bonded' fabric that almost feels like neoprene - SS15 is all about the bonded trench coat FYI; new brand Finery also have some great styles.
Yes, I have acquired another Next pair of shoes(!) This amazing pair of black leather laser-cut flatforms were sent to me by Next to wear to their recent ShoeboxJukebox blogger party (shoes + tunes, perfect!) They look so expensive, you'd never guess they were high street.
