Stella McCartney and Snakeskin Love
Meet Stella. Stella is my new love.
No, not seriously. I haven't named my new jacket but, I do love it rather a lot!
I got such a serious deal on it that I couldn't leave it behind. The deal was so good, in fact, that I ordered the only size they had, an IT38 or a UK6. Now, ladies, I am not a UK6 by any stretch of the imagination and I spent the last few days fretting that it wouldn't fit and that I would have to go through the hassle and heartbreak of returning it. But, the Fashion Gods were smiling down on me and it fits perfectly. Happy out!
It was originally €685 and was marked down to €240 and, with the extra 40% off, I got it for the princely sum of €118. Now do you see why I couldn't leave it behind?!
There are loads of little details which I really love; from the faded snakeskin effect and the biker-esque elbow patches, to the fabric inserts and little zips on the back. I'll get so much wear out of this because it's black and because it can be dressed up with a dress or leather pants or dressed down with skinny jeans or leggings and flat boots.
All in the Details!
Now, at the request of Claire, I have some pictures of me wearing it but, I am a bit of Headless Horseman in them as I was still in my gym clothes- I was that excited to try it on so, excuse the facelessness and leglessness!
Hope you like!
