I was a pretty practical, reasonable buyer. I didn’t buy on impulse, preferring to scout around for trends and must-have pieces. Until two weeks ago, when I fell in love at first sight.
My object of affection? An olive jumpsuit, fluid and breezy, yet masculine. I saw it in a magazine – I had the shop real close, the price was just in my range, so off I went to buy it. What do you know?! Two hours (and two malls) later, I gave up – there wasn’t a trace of this versatile fall piece. They didn’t even know about it!!! (I mean, what were the odds?!)
I have one more shop to pillage before giving up altogether.
Meanwhile, I played a little bit with fall’s key trends, one of which is, yes, the beautiful jumpsuit (I told you I was in love!). Also, you might have noticed a piece of clothing gathering quickly attention after SJP and Olivia Palermo started to wear it – the poncho! Of course, Burberry’s poncho was my choice too, for a bit of warmth. I planned on giving a little glamour to the outfit with an alligator belt, in a dark burgundy shade, and a pair of animal print pumps.
As for accessories, a floppy burgundy hat and a pair of glasses are more than enough. Here, there’s no room for jewellery, especially since the poncho and the hat give it an urban feel.
