After purchasing a new purse out of my birthday money in April only for the stitching to be coming away after a months use I decided to return it back to Radley.
Whilst looking around the department stores afterwards, I stumbled upon Aspinal in the House of Fraser sale. Aspinal is a brand I’ve loved for many years, but had never bought anything from their.
My Mam spotted their business/credit card case in the sale in the brown saffiano and espresso suede colour way. The size of this is perfect as a daily purse in a small bag and it fits nicely in a clutch bag so your cards/change don’t end up at the bottom of the bag.
Having used this for a month there are no issues with stitching or marks. It’s perfect! I’m now after one of their larger purses for my winter capsule wardrobe.
Due to many skin sensitivities this year, I now have to be careful with my purchases when it comes to fashion and stick to natural fibres only. I have also made the informed decision to build a capsule wardrobe of key items that I will enjoy wearing throughout the seasons and will not become bored with.
It’s easy to stick to black, grey and navy but sometimes a little colour is needed during the cooler and darker months to add a little colour and interest to an outfit. This can either be a skirt or top or something much easier to work into a capsule wardrobe like scarves, hats and gloves or a colourful pair of tights.
My autumn/winter wish list looks something like this.
