I keep coming across all these amazing looks with Isabel Marant anoraks and I was inspired to pull this little number from the back of my closet.  Many moons ago I spent a really fun, silly day as a grid girl with a good girlfriend of mine (I held the Switzerland lollipop in case you were wondering) – I let the lycra all in one suit go at the end of the day but this little anorak seemed to find it’s way home with me.  It languished in the dark until Friday when it made it’s return to the fashion world!  The girls at work were not completely impressed – what do you reckon?!



P.S.  Pretty sure I wore red lipstick that day at Brands Hatch too – ha, good times!

    I do love the jacket and loved also the way you combined it! I say YES to his return to the fashion world, it suits you perfectly (as well as your RED lipstick!)
    Kisses, vanda

      I think high heels make pretty much anything look good!x

      thanks – pretty glad I could find something I already had because I’m pretty sure the marant is out of my budget and also won’t be a lasting trend!

    I say ya to the miracle closet that gives you whatever you need! I always hoped for my closet to immaculately conceive celine and chloe but I still wait in vain! 😛

    Looking gorgeous Wendy!! Red lipstick is a bomb on you!! 🙂

      aw thanks sweetie – little bit different for me with the red 😉 I wish my wardrobe would produce some designer finds too – one day for both of us I’m sure it will happen.x
