Leather skirt update!

A quick update on last night's blog. I spotted this absolute beauty in the window of Reiss this morning and had to add it to the favourites list. It would be pretty near the top. Olive green, a loose fit - so wearable. Another for the sales watch!

Leather skirts on the high street

After blogging about leather skirts a few weeks ago, I spotted an absolute beauty from Massimo Dutti in a magazine. It was black, knee length and quilted – an air of Chanel about it. I was already doing the run through of what it would go with and how I’d wear it for work...and putting it on my January sales watch.

I thought I’d feature it on Edna as part of a ‘my top five favourite leather skirts’...only I can’t find it on Massimo Dutti and can’t remember which magazine I spotted it in. So I’ve been thwarted! I may have to drop in store and see if I can see it in the flesh and will report back.

But in the meantime, these are my other high street favourites.

Mango leather pencil skirt - £79.99

Minnie Mouse jewellery

So far, I seem to be sticking to my 'no shopping until January' pledge with relative ease (admittedly Mr W has purchased me a dress over the past month, which has probably helped!). But there are times, such as today, when I spot something I've been lusting after for quite some time and it's now in the sale and my new austere ways chafe just a little!

Minnie ears necklace - £35 (down from £50)

This Minnie Mawi for Disney Couture necklace is part of a range of Minnie Mouse inspired jewellery from the glorious costume jewellery designer, Mawi.

I've lusted after this for a while and now it's in the sale, it's very difficult to keep my purse shut. I love pretty much everything in this range though - the small stud earrings are a close second to this necklace. Fingers crossed there'll still be a few pieces left come January!

JW Anderson for Topshop...in the office?!

A bit late to the party on this, as the JW Anderson range for Topshop launched a little while ago, but I’ve finally got around to having a look at it. You may have seen lots of photos of Alexa Chung sporting the bat sweater from the range around the time the collection was launched during London Fashion Week (it’s now sold out).

It would have be easy to look at the styling of the JW Anderson for Topshop shoot and just clicked back off, thinking that there’s nothing for a 35-year-old working mum. But, calm the styling down a little and there are some great pieces. I’m a massive fan of the matching skirts and tops in quilted fabrics. I know that there’s a worry that you could make yourself look bigger wearing any sort of quilted material but the fabric is silk, so I think it would have a softness and movement to it. I can really imagine these outfits at a day in the office, as a slightly quirky version of a skirt suit.

Quilted paisley silk skirt - £69.99

Quilted paisley top - £59.99


Quilted spider print skirt - £69.99


Quilted spider silk top - £59.99

My absolute favourite, however, is this tortoise print skirt, paired with a white shirt and heels this would also be great in the office (though I may have a serious think before wearing it to a board meeting!).
