Back in August I took a day off work for a tweet-up with some lovely Twitter friends inWilmslow and a spot of shopping at Black White Denim. 5 of us; Penny from New Zealand, Kate from Sheffield, Louise from Cardiff, Jo from Black White Denim and I had a lovely lunch, a good old catch up and then a little bit of shopping!
Now I had gone with a budget of £150 – after the house move and with a holiday coming up I hadn’t planned on a big spend but oh no… After a few drinks with Kate and a trying on session the budget was well and truly blown!!! I could have pretty much bought everything in BWD as this season (as every season) is just amazing; it’s all so wearable and with clothes you will love and wear until they fall off you!
I went on holiday a few days after this shop so I hadn’t actually opened the bag up until today! I’m treating these purchases as birthday presents to myself and as I was off from work again unwell today I thought I would put this post together as the temperature is dropping which means I can finally wear my purchases!
These three pieces will liven up my winter wardrobe…
Samsoe & Samsoe Jumper
Samsoe & Samsoe is a new brand to me and new in to BWD. I don’t know much about the brand other than its Danish and that I like it! I spotted this jumper online and was hoping it was still instore when I visited and lucky for me it was! This jumper was going to be my only purchase…. it’s a wool, alpaca and acrylic mix jumper and it’s just soooooo cosy! I love the pattern on it; it’s just the perfect winter snuggling up jumper. I think this has sold out online now but the oversized cardi-coat in the same print is still available.
Samsoe & Samsoe Jumper at Black White Denim – £92
I can’t wait to wear this jumper and I think I will wear it with my Current/Elliott boyfriends and my brouge boots from Topshop. I loooove these boots, I picked them up 2yrs ago when I first moved to Guildford, they look really cool with boyfriends, big jumpers or shirts.
Bella Freud – Girl Jumper
I first spotted this jumper on Laura Bailey at the Charlotte Tilbury Rock & Khol Selfridges event and I instantly wanted it – obviously Laura Bailey looks far better in it than me! I didn’t know Jo had this in, but as soon as I tried it on I had to buy it. I love this blue, it really makes my eyes look blue when I wear it, even though they are more hazel/brown – they seem to change colour! This is merino wool and I am petrified that it might shrink when washed – fingers crossed!
Bella Freud ‘Girl’ Jumper at Black White Denim – £230
I bought this in a medium as I like my jumpers to be a bit baggy. This will be worn with my JBrand Aiden Boyfriends as they are a tad more fitted than the Current/Elliotts, paired with my Whistles heels which I wear everywhere at the moment! Finished off with my beloved Proenza Schouler PS1.
Markus Lupfer Beanie
My beanie love is well documented on this blog and again as soon as I put this on I had to have it! It’s lovely and oversized with a cool red sequin crown, set against the navy knit. Yes, it was a totally extravagant buy but hey!
Markus Lupfer Crown Beanie at Black White Denim – £140
So that’s me pretty much set with some new winter purchases, I could do with a coat and I am kicking myself for not buying the checked black and white Maison Scotch coat I tried on that day. The early worm really does catch the best winter buys!
