Firstly, I apologize for the fact that I look like I’ve not slept for days, those who follow me on instagram or twitter will know that I got given a huge black eye by a very over-enthusiastic husky puppy whilst we were playing (I’m sure you can guess who!) last week. It’s almost healed now, but the puffiness & swelling is still hanging around making me look seriously sleep deprived!

I might be the only one, but I am so excited to be able to wear my heavy maxi skirts & jackets again, Autumn is definitely my favourite season & I can’t wait to layer up even more. This laser cut jacket from Topshop is one of those pieces I love & yet hate at the same time. I love the beautifully cut back & how attention grabbing it is (I got stopped by 4 different people today just to tell me how much they loved it) but I hate that I can only wear it when the weather’s just right. It’s too delicate to layer over any bulky sweaters to make it more winter appropriate & the suede is too thick, heavy & sweaty to wear during the summer, so I intend to wear it as much as possible whilst I can!

I’m developing a bit of an addiction to Bracher Emden’s bags. It’s as though they’ve peered into my brain, made a note of what my ideal bag would look like & designed them especially for me. I have been taking my Geo clutch everywhere with me, it’s such a showstopper & never fails to get people asking about it thanks to it’s unusual shape, but as someone who likes to pack everything but the kitchen sink into her bags it’s not something I can carry day to day. This soft oversized Lucy clutch is perfect for that though, it has all the same attitude & wonderful design elements of the Geo but in a more practical size & shape. I love the option of the removable shoulder strap & the geometric appliqué which gives it that same sci-fi feel I loved about the Geo.

Mens tees are one of my favourite things to wear, especially when paired with more streamlined & tailored pieces. This one from Camp Beverly Hills is exactly what I’ve been looking for, beautiful super soft cotton, boxy cut & minimalistic text to the front. It’s a perfect basic & I’ve always had a soft spot for heathered charcoal tees, so it’s a great addition to my collection… Well, I say ‘my collection’ most are the boyfriends that I’ve just never given back!

    That jacket is such an original piece! Steph, you wear all-black so well and I really like how you mix feminine pieces like the maxi-skirt with a casual tee…Are you at LFW? If so, have a great time at the shows!

      Thanks Caterina! I’m not, as I live a little way from London we couldn’t manage to get down there this season, gutted to be missing it all, but going to try & sort something out so we can do the whole week in February! :)

    How amazing is that jacket, and the clutch is my favourite I see why you’re addicted to those bags, such gorgeous style. Have a great weekend dear. xx/Madison

    Oh trust me, you are by far not the only one excited for this. Except substitute maxi skirts with leggings and skinny jeans. I could never pull maxi skirts off that well. ^^
    Anyways, you look amazing, and ah I am so glad your eye has healed over for the most part!! You can’t even tell in the pictures, if it helps. :) I guess there are certain dangers that come with owning pups, though the benefits more than make up for them, I’d think. :D

      Oh yes! I’m looking forward to leggings & skinnies too! Well, actually just all of my warmer clothes, I definitely feel more at home in lots of layers & thick fabrics!
      Thankyou, it does look better than I thought it did, MAC’s heavy duty concealer has become my new best friend until it’s totally gone! ;) Yes, he was very sorry, I couldn’t even be mad at him cos he just started licking my eyebrow & whimpering! I guess trying to kiss it better?! Hah!

    This has to be my favourite look from you! You and black are the perfect combination. The jacket is like a piece of art. Truly stunning, the details are amazing!. x

    You look amazing and I am here drooling over that clutch and the jacket… :)

    Oh gosh, that jacket is to die for! It’s so perfect with the bag and the whole outfit, so beautiful.And I know what you mean about the colder weather, I’ve been digging out all my jumpers in anticipation of the first properly cold day!

    love this jacket and the bracher erdem is very cool too – don’t worry you’re not alone in your ‘victim of puppy paw’ state – I’ve been there before too!

      Hehe! Glad I’m not the only one! I’ve had so many people look confused & as though they don’t believe me when I’ve tried to explain the puppy did it!

  10. Posted 15.09.2012 at 6:19 am | Permalink

    Oh wow, the cutout detail at the back of the jacket is just superb. I’m envious of the chillier pre-fall weather you folks are experiencing, along with all the gorgeous fall clothing you’ll be wearing. Sucks to be living in the tropics!

      Posted 15.09.2012 at 12:25 pm | Permalink

      Aww, I’m sure once it gets to be bitterly cold here I’ll be getting envious of your sunny weather though! I love Autumn but Winter here is depressing, especially with all the rain!

  11. Posted 15.09.2012 at 8:10 am | Permalink

    Love the styling here! You make everything look so good together. I would have troubles mixing a maxi and black jacket together. the cutting your jacket is superb by the way :)

    Perfect outfit !!!
    Jacket is AMAZING !!!
    I love autumn too but here in SA we don’t have autumn :(

  14. Posted 15.09.2012 at 9:21 pm | Permalink

    The back of that jacket is seriously to die for… Such a sweet detail! xx

  15. Posted 16.09.2012 at 12:06 pm | Permalink

    So in love with this outfit, that jacket and clutch are AMAZING!

  16. Posted 16.09.2012 at 12:32 pm | Permalink

    Your jacket is beautiful! Even though it isn’t very practical it makes wearing it when you can even more special I should imagine. I love the Bracher Emden clutch too, it looks so well made and the subtle detail is great! Also I hope your eye heals soon! xx

      Posted 16.09.2012 at 1:58 pm | Permalink

      Yeah, I think you’re right, I actually get excited for Autumn / Spring so that I can wear it again! And If I can only wear it now & then, at least it’ll stay in good condition for a long time. Thankyou! It’s healing up nicely, I think it’ll be back to normal pretty soon! :)

    Omg perfect look ♥

  18. Posted 16.09.2012 at 7:05 pm | Permalink

    Oh no! Naughty Nico, I’m so lucky I have a tiny dog. You know I think this might be my favourite outfit of yours, you look amaaaaazing (although you always do!) I wish I could do that whole dark hair, dark clothes thing. That jacket is such a work of art, how annoying that it’s kind of awkward though because of rubbish UK weather. So jeljeljel of your bag too! xxx

  19. Posted 16.09.2012 at 7:53 pm | Permalink

    That jacket is amazing. I loved it from the bag but the detailing on the back in like BAM amazing! Love the whole look and love your hair in these pictures. Also hope your black eye is all healed up!

  20. Posted 17.09.2012 at 2:17 am | Permalink

    That jacket is insanely awesome!


  21. Posted 18.09.2012 at 3:37 am | Permalink

    Stephanie, I really like this outfit, that jacket is sick!! I think its cute & hilarious you got a black eye by Nico. Get better and it did not effect your beauty, lovely and edgy as usual xx

  22. Posted 18.09.2012 at 9:42 am | Permalink

    the jacket is incredible! love the detail and the pairing with that particular tee, and your black eye is not noticeable at all in these photos ;)

  23. Posted 19.09.2012 at 7:47 am | Permalink

    Oh this outfit is so perfect! I love a simple tee combined with a skirt and an edgy jacket.
    Just stumbled across your blog and I’m definitely loving it, girl! xo

    You’ve just reminded me to check out Topshop again. I often walk past the massive store opposite Harrods. There are so many options that I often ended up getting a headache and walking out. I can easily understand the number of compliments you’re getting. The laser cut back is absolutely exquisite. That said, the model is equally stunning too!

  25. Posted 23.09.2012 at 1:46 am | Permalink

    These are taken outside the Highcross, right? You look incredible! Really love that outfit xx

        Yes I am! I’ve never really seen any bloggers from Leicester before! I really do love your blog :)

          Me either! Though I’ve met quite a few now from the Midlands, we were actually talking about doing a Midlands blogger meet up the other day. Are you on Twitter?
          Thanks for the lovely compliments too, I’m so behind on catching up on blogs at the moment, but I shall check yours out in a mo! :)

    Hope your eye is 100% better now – you still look amazing, I swear!

    This jacket is just divine…

    Your jacket is perfect!
    I love the back of it!
