That’s no pedigree


I’m having cravings… no, not those kinds of cravings – leather cravings.  I remember when I got my mitts on this leather peplum and it seemed so indulgent.  I mean to buy something made of leather and that I expected not to wear all that often.  And yet, it seems leather is still on trend and, in any case, just because it’s the perfect fit and shape I have deemed it a classic.  I rely on it in times of need for layering over or this time under or indeed all alone.

And now my sights have become set on finding the perfect leather skinny pant.  Are they out there? Almost certainly.  Is the high street about to provide a budget friendly genuine leather option like this top?  Time will tell.

Gearing up for a crazy week – gotta love a bit of crazy though right?!

      thanks so much sheree – the sweater’s great isn’t it – perfect for me obviously (just a shame it’s not a finnish lapphund on there!)

    I don’t know HM has the peplum belt too, always mad about our HM store here, never have amazing stuff like this:)

    But I know I love both of your dogs:)

    • Thankfifi Posted 5 Nov at 4:03 pm

      I have a few great stores closeby but did get this top online in the end (as soon as it appeared!) – 2 dogs are always better than one!

  14. Laura Posted 6 Nov at 8:56 am

    oh ok, I thought the leather peplum bit was from the jumper. I like it!


    • Thankfifi Posted 6 Nov at 2:36 pm

      Nope – separates! I guess the belt makes it look like an all in one

  15. eleni Posted 6 Nov at 1:01 pm

    what an unexpected approach on the leather peplum belt! So creative and unique as expected of a beautiful mind such as yours!

    • Thankfifi Posted 6 Nov at 2:39 pm

      thank you – so good for layering in this cold weather – the leather is surprisingly (or perhaps not that surprising!) warm

  16. eva Posted 7 Nov at 8:52 pm

    • Thankfifi Posted 8 Nov at 9:07 am
