WANT.

If you follow me on Instagram (if not, WHY NOT? You’re seriously missing out… @_hannahstocking) you’ll know that I posted a slightly stalkerish photo of a woman I saw in Homebase the other day looking absolutely FAB-U-LOUS. She was who I want to be in the future, impeccably dressed, ever so glam but with an air of “Oh this old thing? I just threw it on!” about her and I love it! She wore everything she had on, nothing wore her which is what I loved about it, she definitely seemed to have her own refined style. (pic below)

Anyway, I loved what she was wearing so much that I decided I wanted a mac like hers… I have a sneaky suspicion that hers is from Zara, although the way she carries it off it could easily be Aquascutum. Now, I actually already have a mac in the slightly darker tone like hers (I keep saying “hers” and feel rude that I’m not using a name… But then I’d feel weird making one up, non?) but I really love the style of it. It’s more effortless than my more tailored one, more “thrown on, but look how chic I am” one. Soooooooo…. Thanks to my wonderful friend Zara (the shop, I don’t actually have a friend called Zara) I’ve found one! I still need to somehow figure out a way to justify buying it, but I’m sure it won’t be long before I can think of a good enough reason. After all, I have no self control when it comes to spending money which should be saved…

Looking at both macs closer, the Zara one looks a LOT like the lovely Homebase lady’s one doesn’t it? I wish I could see the pockets on her one though… The mac does come in a darker shade exactly like hers but I think I prefer the lighter one in this style.

So who knows if I’ll end up buying it, *cough* it’s-my-birthday-on-the-26th-June *cough-cough-cough*. Ooh I seem to have a tickly throat… I shall keep you posted!

DESIGNER WINTER ACCS

The way the weird and wonderful fashion industry works is that while the sky is thick and the ground is white in January, high-end websites and exclusive stores are already making you (or at least me) feel nauseous as they tempt us fashion bunnies with their shining array of wayyyy-too-expensive Spring/Summer collections. But hold up, I’t England. It’s snowing. The temperature is disgusting.

Much like my previous post on high street Winter accessories, here are my top designer picks for Winter accessories.
