Aspinal of London – review

AspinalAfter 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.


Autumn/Winter fashion wishlist

imageDue 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.
