Black Sheep

Posted 29 June 2012

Friend of Mine coat, Miu Miu heels

If I could wear coats all of the time, I would. In my mind, there’s nothing better than putting on the perfect outer shell which keeps you warm and creates one clean silhouette. I couldn’t go past the fluffy look of this Friend of Mine ‘poodle coat’,  which despite it’s name just reminds me of the black sheep which used to sit idle in the paddock near my childhood house. No, the sheep wasn’t mine, but there were a few around (it was New Zealand after all).

Even though it’s faux fur, the lining is super think and it’s the ultimate insulator against the cold weather we’ve had lately. This covered up look is a far cry from Friend of Mine’s new collection which is due to drop into stores soon, and I have to say I’m surprisingly drawn to it. It’s pretty sexy; but there’s just so much black, white and leather I can’t say no.

Jessie, you look so great! I think I've written it before, but I love you style! Black is perfect on you with your hair color and natural makeup...Every time I think about buying print, I see your outfits and change my mind. - Aliya:)
