The jacket of dreams - or so I esteemed it when the new purchase debuted in a instagram post - has been etched to my back ever since said point of purchase - and such was a steal if there ever was one. Outdoing its usual abundant self, the current Topshop sale has been a generous one at that. On the multiple occasions that I just so happened to wander into Topshop, innocent browsing somehow ensued separate scavenges of the sale rail and not once did I surface empty handed - scores of jeans, trousers and earrings a trio were the treasure to be salvaged (much to the dismay of my bank balance, who needs money for uni anyway?). Yet, no find outdoes the jacket - the dream jacket, the very one I first laid eyes on when it hung admirably in Topshop a few weeks back in all its full priced glory, and a tempting lure it did emit back then - but I withheld from such indulgence, wary of impulse and suffice to say that such restraint paid off. Much to my delight it was when a swift peruse of the Topshop sale before bed uncovered that the cropped jacket of dreams had been issued a slashed price tag - a swift foray in Topshop the following day unearthed the 60s-esque jacket in perfect sizing and off to the checkout I went, happy and fulfilled. It had to be told in fairytale depth, okay? I mean just look at the cut of it, ah I am in love.
Following on from my Topshop treasure - the dream jacket and its wondrous tones of orange meets red - pairs fluidly with the vibrant roll neck of akin colour scheme which I attained from the ASOS sale, it seems I can never resist a good sale sweep - and such I am happy for this current season; I just adore the colour of the roll neck enough to forgive its unfortunate art of bunching up above the waist. Oddly enough I have found myself yearning for more vibrancy in my wardrobe of late, particularly shades of the vivid red persuasion, clearly demonstrated in this ensemble - a far cry from my darker, grunge inspired days - maybe said change of flair is down to the autumnal feeling in the air, or the 70s loving I have been so greatly participating in of latter months yet I know one thing for sure - a penchant for the 60s has been budding of recent and if my current lust list is anything to go by it shows no sign of halting.
