Because I cannot get enough of them. Ok, I might be a bit overdramatic (NAAH, Never ;)), the situation is not that bad, as I really try to considerate every purchase very carefully both in front of my notebook and when I get them, therefore I return (or sell :D) everything if I have the tiniest bit of doubt. I don’t really need anything right now, so I only keep what speaks to me and so I truly love.
Like Mango for example
Actually at this point I love it more than Zara, which is probably not so shocking given my love hate relationship with Zara, yet it’s a fact, so not entirely needless to mention. This corduroy blazer is part of the Committed collection and it’s pricey, especially for Mango therefor I didn’t want to give in. I love the similar but more affordable H&M version anyway, and yet I couldn’t get this one out of my head. Here I’m wearing it with old Urban Renewal tee, Agolde Jamie jeans and Zign boots.
It’s probably due to the fact that 1, I adore this russet colour. 2, Freaking love corduroy. 3, It suits me in every way. 4, I watched and loved the advertisement video Mango made, so much so I even sent it to my husband to watch. It’s so beautiful. 5, It’s part of the Commitment collection, so yes, it’s pricy but well-made of full organic cotton. What’s not to love, I could ask. And now, having tried it, the price seems totally justified.
Actually I also tried on these jeans, because well, obviously I have a problem, and this fuzzy bag, mainly because I’m longing for a nice brown bag. Didn’t keep either of these though, due to the aforementioned reasons, but if you haven’t found the perfect full soft! cotton, light straight jeans yet, you could consider these. They are not the heavy kind of jeans though, but they’re so soft.
I’d showed you these yesterday in this Outfit Quickie, then I realised I haven’t featured them yet, so here we go. These are called the Seattle Week Blue jeans and they’re pretty good, especially if we consider the high street price, int this case, £40.Now these are my first ever clothing from the brand, but then I learned it’s part of the H&M family, which I’m a big fan of lately. What I love here, aside the fact they fit me (went for my usual size), is the 100% organic cotton fabric, the middle blue wash and the perfect ankle cropped length (28 in this case but in reality it must be shorter, around 25 I think).
Another wool blend blazer, that arrived not so long ago, therefore, I couldn’t wear it yet. This photo is not the best, but was my only option this time due to the bloody light, more precisely the lack of it. What you have to know, that it comes huge (this is the UK8, EU34) with pretty big, overflowing shoulder pads. Otherwise, the fabric is nice, quite thin though and also has an old school label inside, which is one of the details I dig. 🙂Finally another pair of vintage high ankle jeans, cos I’m helpless, but also because of Emma Hill. I’m not sure I’m gonna keep these though, because what’s perfect on a 5’9 tall gal, it’s not necessarily good on a 5’3 if you know what I mean. The fit is great though, it hugs all the right places, but they’re quite long on me. Also I’m not the biggest fan of rips, and these have two of them, although not big ones and they’re not on the knee. On the other hand for £35 or even less if you’re a member like me these are great and some self-cropped hem can be still considered :).
What do you think of these?
