It’s not true when they say Fashion Editors only wear designer labels. If only it were…
The devil may well wear Prada, but the rest of us are relentless bargain hunters at heart (can you blame us, when our job quite literally requires us to scout out all of the very chicest hidden gems?).
And while that may break down the fourth wall illusion that I’m sitting at my desk right now with my hooves parked in some new season Stella sneakers, it does mean that I know our good old British high street like the back of my hand.
Here’s what I’m buying, wearing and wanting this week…
1. The scalloped-trim trench coat
If there’s one thing my wardrobe certainly doesn’t need it’s a trench coat, but if there’s one thing you can guarantee I’ll buy at least one more of this year it’s, you guessed it, a trench coat. But while frequent purchases may seem hugely frivolous, I promise that – when considering how often I wear them – they’re actually one of my wisest buys. The multicoloured scalloped trim of this one actually made me gasp when I first saw it, and gives the staple piece a more playful, feminine feel.
2. The floral beaded earrings
