Trend Watch

I’ve always dismissed anyone that mentions Corduroy is making a comeback, Corduroy to me is usually a reminder of the 1990’s Indie scene, the badly fitting trousers that used to go baggy and faded at the knees after you had worn them to a few gigs or theres the older affluent country gents that would never be seen in anything else than Corduroy trousers and a Barbour check shirt, anyway it definitely isn’t something I would usually put together with the word style but maybe I should raid my dads wardrobe as I love this look for Prada’s pre-fall collection AW17.

So I am coming around to the idea and not only cos I’ve been living in my Navy corduroy dungarees that I bought in Whistles last year but they are also much kinder to the skin than denim on cold winter mornings too so I am gonna be rocking this look this winter, you just watch me. ♥

 

 

The Cape Cool

I’ve never really liked capes, there’s never anywhere to put your hands, they just kind of flop limply out of their slits in front of you, but then i see Alex Chung wearing a Burberry one and its like ‘i gotta have that cape’ they look so crazy cool, well Alexa can make anything look cool, but anyway in our Lila Shop at the moment we have a 1960’s Khaki one by Gloverall, Khaki being that fabulous colour that red heads always look amazing in and its also having a moment right now this season. so check it out in our Etsy shop,

Autumn, we hear ya!

Autumn has never been my favourite time of the year but this year it fell in my favour, The rust colours everywhere this season mixed with camel is a pretty nice combo and it just happens to go well with my hair colour. So its a win win situation.

This Camel coat is a 1970’s Aquascutum find made with pure camel hair, The autumn leaves print full skirt drapes perfectly and is a vintage 1980’s design by no other than Mulberry and 1970’s rust sandals. All available to purchase from my Lila Vintage Shop on Etsy.
