Style // Emerald City



Today, I thought I'd shine the spotlight on one of my favourite items in my wardrobe right now: this little beauty from Zara! Offering a nostalgic nod to the baroque trend that graced AW13 catwalks its over the top, over-embellished, green, gold, glistening and indulgent. Just how I like things.

I've taken to wearing it like a cape, partly because I think it creates a beautiful flowing sixties style silhouette, and mostly because, whilst the metal beading & gem detailing is indeed exquisite, the jacket weighs a god damn ton. No joke, it's like an actual piece of armour, so I find it a bit easier on my weedy shoulders & arms draped this way.

To keep this statement jacket the main focus, I like to keep the rest of my outfit fairly simple - one of H&M's basic blouses and my trusty topshop jamie jeans for daytime, or to jazz up an otherwise all-black ensemble if I venture out in the evening. Long live the embellishment.

Much love,
