Raf Simons didn’t let me down, and this season it was all about cutwork. Outfit after outfit was slashed or winkled open to form a lattice that veiled the female form below.

As the temperatures drop I find myself living in comfy polo necks spiced up with a shiny PVC skirt and sandals, or enveloped in more layers than the michelin man; camis under jumpers and faux fur coats with a gorgeous pair of Topshop leather trousers I can’t seem to wrestle off my legs lately..

A pretty little dose of Thursday inspiration. Off for a meal with some ladies tonight, I’m feeling plenty of tanned Louboutin-ended leg and a punchy red lip.

The Love Affair Continues..

I already devoted a post to declaring excitement/infatuation and a load of other way too excitable ramblings for a new season high street collection last week, but these little beauties have filtered their way under my Zara-radar and left me too hot to not share with you;
