What do you think of my little piece of Paris Dallas? As you can see from my Instagram I have my eye on the ankle boots but we can’t always have what we want….. booooo so the next best thing is to buy some jewellery. I loved this necklace for so many reasons, its black so it will go with silver or gold accessories, it kind of matches the pendent on my WOC, it can be worn two lengths and it is very similar to one I wanted last season that was pretty much the same except for multiple chains and a shorter length. This one was £220 the other one with multiple chains was £1005!
Did you know the reason Karl Lagerfeld launched the Dallas collection was because Coco Chanel won the Neiman Marcus award for distinguished service in the field of fashion in 1957. Chanel made her first trip to Texas to receive the award at the Statler Hilton downtown. So of course any Chanel fans likes myself need to have a piece of this Coco history!
My Sister Jane Woodstock faux suede gillet made a change from from wearing a jacket like I always do. The colour and fabric makes this piece ideal for city living and day wear, personally I always feel these kind of style gilet/kimonos are only suitable for holidays or the beach but this one has the perfect combination to make it suitable for everyday. The creative director Aldene Johnson is Florence Welch’s personal stylist, can you see where this is going…. Buy Sister Jane and you will feel like Florence for the day!! You can really see the likeness from the style of Aldene and how she has projected this in the collection and all at really affordable prices. I had the pleasure to meet Aldene at the Trace PR Candy Canyon launch event, she was extremely passionate about the collection and very sweet. Sister Jane offers a rare chance to have access to a collection that has creative input from such a successful stylist that has masterminded (is that a word) the incredible style of a fashion icon.
I felt like the collection was boho but not full on bohemian which I think is a nice balance. I have my eye on a few other pieces this and this in particular, hopefully I will get my hands on another piece and share this with you. The boutique is located just off Portobello road in the cutest location or you can purchase the collection from Topshop, Urban Outfitters and ASOS.
