One thing leads to another…

…And I am checking out what Topshop envisage will be the key autumn pieces and having a chuckle. Whoever decides that sequins and harem pants are key looks deserves to be taken outside and shot. Mind you, those who wear such looks also need their head read :).

The featured trench coat and lace-up boots did catch my eye though. A coat or jacket is a necessity in Ballarat about 9 months of the year, and the trench screams trans-seasonal. Which is clearly why it is more than a key look; it’s a classic look.

I would much rather go for classic rather than trendy- it’s cheaper than slavishly following fashion whims. If I were to have a style icon, it would be Audrey Hepburn. I’m never going to match her slimness, but I do aspire to her quiet elegance.

As for the boots…well, I do have three pairs, but no lace-ups, so there is a gap in my wardrobe…
