Hey, I can always make a sartorial statement if I can't make it mentally or verbally, right? Magnifique indeed baby.

Went out armed with $$ to get some much needed (well, as much as any of us actually need anything ) shopping done today. Left the house in the trench, and came home in the cupro Mackage "parka" (their word, not mine - although it's freaking cold enough here again to warrant an actual parka . Goodbye Spring , it was great knowing you for a week). Anyways , I went in to my trusty local boutique buy a blazer and the owner "made" me also buy this cupro Mackage leather trimmed anorak . She's always right. I love it! Cupro is the best fabric - so lightweight, non creasing , drapey yet not flimsy. And it was on sale

I enjoyed this pairing of the Magnifique linen t, white jeans and silver loafers (changed into silver sneakers which I also bought today) and big silver earrings ,so much that I have worn it twice already this week . The anorak is going to be my new favourite piece, I can tell already - look how it's styled in the Nordstrom find! I can totally do that.

Anyways - having a struggle with loving the body, as many of us are right now, and am finding my white jeans a good fall-back. They are a little roomy and forgiving because of the stretch, but they also don't make me feel lousy - which is a key thing at the moment.

I did get a few good things today on my shopping binge, but still am in search of a new bag. And I have to thanks/no thanks the YLF crew here for making me think I would really like a new "it bag" for summer. I want something black/white or silver - and a bit of a statement piece. Didn't find it today .

Anyways - comments on the outfit are welcome!
