I noticed that things I bought quite a while ago have also popped up in similar forms via Burberry’s (killer) RTW 2010 fashion show and on Abbey (another floppy hat fan).
Regardless, since one eye is (already) on Autumn with summer stock in shops on clearance, here’s 3 pieces I’ll be wrapping up in when the temps drop.

    Amazing post.. I really need these warm looking clothes

  25. Karen says:

    Anon – ok I wouldn’t go THAT far! but thank you!

    Ashley & Maya – I know what you mean but I really enjoy relishing the time we have right now. Soon we’ll only be complaining that we wish it was hot so I’m ok with waiting ; )

    Viv – I just shop too much lol!!!

    Your Lady – how much is it? if its a really cool piece though I think it’s worth it if you know you can’t find anything like it where you are and even with the shipping its still a deal comparatively speaking?

    Studded Hearts – hey you. Definitely my fave kinda clothes. Nothing beats it.

    Melissa – wow that says alot.

  26. -L says:

    I have the same F21 jacket… I’m totally in love with i too!!

  27. Your Lady. says:

  28. Karen says:

    L – it really is.

  29. Suzanne says:

    That first coat you found….I would die if I found something similar!!! Here’s hoping I find some stuff at a flea market tomorrow -crossing my fingers-
