Happy august.

Happy August everybody we are officially here and it feels fabulous. I don’t know what the weather looks like where you are but here it’s miserable as sin. Doesn’t feel very augusty at all.

Anyway today I looked back and realised how disorganised I was for autumn last year. There was no coat, no bag, no scarf and even a hippie would object to flip flops in the snow, come on!

So I’ve devised a cunning plan, muahahahaha…ha! MAKE A LIST!

List all the things you think you’ll need this fall, from the nail polish to the socks to EVERYTHING! You can save time and money, so when it is winter, you’ll be as toasty as toast.

So key items…

the check list

staple pieces for…

the chic

A cape (less Batman, more Balmain)

A fur coat (faux please!)

A pair of suede peep toe wedges

the meek with chic

A khaki green blazer

A brown leather satchel (vintage)

A pair of penny loafers (very mod)

the chicest freak

A bowler hat (Charlie Chaplain)

A bright paisley scarf (vintage)

A maxi or midi skirt

statement pieces for…

the chic

A really big clutch (bigger the better)

A brocade blazer (with gold buttons –haberdashery)

A very frilly blouse (Marie Antoinette frilly!)

the meek with chic

A leather jacket (try to find gold studs and zips on it)

Tapered trousers with a detail on them perhaps

Low distressed ankle boots (All Saints)

the chicest freak

The bag in my ‘wear me’ area in the sidebar from Lunacy Boutique

Something leopard print shoes or a top

The granniest crop jumper you can find (vintage, from when your were 5

Or off a pensioners back maybe (no they will arrest you))

Below are a few of the above looks…

Organising and effective planning

are key for a non malfunctioning

wardrobe. But have fun

while you do it and

experiment. Budget if

you can but don’t get

So what’s going on your a/w checklists?
