With the onslaught of cooler temperatures, a quick cross examination of my wardrobe reveals some not so startling evidence.....Black on black, and a foray into fringe and snakeskin this season.
Whilst embracing scales on boots can only be a good thing, the central heating and icy temps have caused my winter skin to become somewhat reptilian too. My weapon of choice.....Aesop's hydrating geranium leaf body products.
And, with an 'investment' bag (fashion speak for costs a 'lotta' dollars) thrown into the mix, you could say I'm somewhat 'skinspired' right now.
For party dressing I'm in favour of shelving the opaques and dipping my toes into something altogether more glam. These Aquazzura sandals have been buzzing around my head for a while......I blame too many close encounters on my Instagram feed, especially on the stunning Savina Chai.
But, I'm all for exploring alternatives, especially when my bank balance say's otherwise, and this Missguided look-alike isn't a bad place to start.
