Well. How to start?
This post is something that's been in the pipeline for ages as it features not one, but two very special fashion items. Both joined my collection soon after I started my graduate job, and they are somewhat emblematic of my 'professional' garderobe. Those who follow me on Instagram already know that I've been working a very sleek red leather number - that is, my first (and possibly, last?) Gucci Bag.
And do not fret dear readers, I am still very much a shoe lady. I like bags, but I am not prepared to walk into HoF or Selfridges and spend a month's full pay on a bag. Luckily for me, and my bank balance, I didn't do so with this Gucci number either - our love story didn't start glamorously in a luxurious private room of a department store. Instead, she came to me when I was in Silverburn, doing my weekly foodshop. Yes, I bought my Gucci bag from TK Maxx. I also got bananas and milk, but they didn't make it into the blog.
The second very special fashion item reflects the style I want to be able to pull off on my business trips (although whether I will or not is another matter). I've been hooked on Stella McCartney's wearable pieces since I bought this top a couple of years back, so this skirt found its place quite naturally in my collections. It is definitely one of my favourite pieces to match with different styles - it works a dream with a plain silk blouse, but also goes well with a printed top and some statement heels.
I matched these two with one of my favourite pair of heels, read their story here.
