Style Update: The Marks & Spencer sweater I risked my life for

Funny story. Ever loved the sight of an item so much that you literally rushed it like someone headed for a touchdown? Yeah, I think my personality leads me to do this quite often. I see something and, as if I am panicking someone else will get to it first, I run over to grab it off the rack. There could be literally no one else in the store and I’ll take this action. Now, let me set the scene. It’s 10am on a Tuesday. There are a handful of people milling around the Marks & Spencer Marble Arch store and I had popped in to grab a pastry from the bakery downstairs. I never had any intention of clothes shopping. But, out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a sweater that made me lose the power of speech.

I stopped dead in my tracks, turned my direction towards said sweater and casually sprinted across the store. Mid-sprint, I tripped over my own foot (classic) and down I went, for everyone to see, right in the middle of one of the most popular Marks & Spencer’s in the country. Luckily the only thing broken was my pride. I got up, dusted myself off and knew this sweater and I were meant to be. I don’t starve myself for fashion, it seems I trip myself instead. So yes, you could say I suffer to  be beautiful, well beautifully dressed anyway. 

Now, a word about this bag. Stellar find as well and it’s Amanda Wakeley from QVC. I got mine in standard black suede, but the bag also comes in a killer croc and more. Worth a looksy if you are purchasing for yourself or others this Christmas.
