If you’re a regular reader you probably won’t have failed to notice that I’ve developed a teeny bit of an obsession with the Anine Bing Madeline Blazer. I first mentioned it in my September Favourites and, like anything in life, wanting something and not being able to get your hands on it seems to make you want it all the more! This blazer has been a bit of a tease. When it sold out I immediately signed up to the waiting list and from then on we were embroiled in a game of cat and mouse – me chasing and always, always getting pipped to the post! I’m not normally one to hold out this long for a particular item but what can I say? When its love, its love! I finally got my hands on my current pride and joy at the beginning of November and to say I am impressed is an understatement! The fabric is so soft – more like a heavy bamboo jersey than the wool I was for expecting (you would think after stalking something for that long I would have eyed up the fabric composition if only to check out the cleaning instructions). It truly is everything I hoped for and more which is just as well as the price tag warranted definite consideration. Although checks are having a bit of a fashion moment, this is far from a trend piece and in my opinion is 100% worth the investment. I took advantage of our recent trip to Spain to shoot this look which I couldn’t resist styling in classic ‘me-fashion’ with jeans, heels and a silk camisole. Whats your sartorial pride and joy? Whats worth the investment for you?
