FFF’s Fashion Stories: March On!

March is a weird month – it’s still freezing, but the sun is shining… from inside it looks warm enough to frolick coatless in the grass, but when you finally get outside you realise you might just need to add a scarf as well…

My dieting and workout regime is continuing well – I’ve currently lost a stone and a half, despite all my restaurant reviews… To keep myself motivated I’ve been creating fashion flatlays with some of my old clothes, because I know it’s just a matter of time before they fit me again. This is an old ASOS dress (seen on me here), paired with my beloved Chloe Drew, and a new pair of shoes from ASOS. These were purchased as a pretty good replikate for the Duchess of Cambridge’s Gianvito Rossi Suede d’Orsay Pumps. As of writing, the Penalty pumps are still available in most sizes, for the bargain price of Β£32!

I also arranged my Gerard Darel blouse with this gorgeous black Carven skirt I purchased on Depop (from the lovely Briony from A Girl A Style), and my trusty Mulberry ponyhair flats. I love preppy fashion, and I wish I could live on the set of Gossip Girl. Except it finished ages ago. But I can’t let go…

Another purchase this month was the Jane jumper from online French retailer Sezane. This was an extravagant buy, but I just fell in love with its intricate pattern and tassling.

I paired it with this beautiful bronze Furla Metropolis crossbody bag, which I sadly returned when I realised I couldn’t really justify buying another bag when I already have dozens of them. Sad times. I’ll always have this photo to remember it by…

The Next sale started, and I couldn’t help but pick up this pretty jacket for summer evenings. It gave me such a Chanel vibe I paired it with these quilted flats from French Sole which always reminded me of the brand too!

Speaking of Chanel, I visited the Harrods branch to get my pearl earrings fixed and spent a good half an hour pining over the clothes. My absolute number one lusted after item of all time is a black caviar leather Chanel flap bag, and I rummaged through their collection and dreamed a little dream.

Zara is more my budget, and I recently purchased this elegant pearl buttoned double -breasted jacket, after I saw it modelled by the effortlessly stylish Anneli Bush, here. There are so many pearl-studded items in Zara right now, and I want to buy all of them. Instead, I browsed through the store and took some snaps of my favourite pieces right now, to share with you! How generous!

The final piece I originally saw on Instagram user budget_duchess, and I agree with her that this totally looks like a piece that the Duchess of Cambridge could add to her wardrobe! What do you think?

Here’s my final purchase of the month – these beautiful, lustworthy embellished backless mules – another piece I stole from Anneli’s style! I told you I was obsessed with pearls…

What’s made its way to your closet this month? Share with me below!
