I have drooled many a time over the delectable Simone Rocha pink coat, but never really assigned myself that look. I never said : 'That right there is what I'm going to wear this winter!'
*If you saw me doing the Style.com scroll on the Stella show, that's exactly what I said... Repeatedly.
But on an evening stroll round Meadowhall to return some faulty items to my favourite four lettered Spanish lover-brand, I came face-to-face with my new AW bestie. And haven't really looked back since.
If being a girly girl is wrong I don't want to be right. Especially when my 'uniform' is pretty much anything black on black or denim or leather. Minimalism is my mantra and this coat just whispers it. It also goes with way more than you - or I - would think. So much so that I'm having to stop myself from wearing it every day for the fact that people may think I sleep in it.
I don't. But my night time accompaniments are no less girly.
Speaking of Pink and the movie vault of quotes that is Mean Girls. The annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was taped last week at Lexington Armoury. Full to bursting with forty Angels from Candice Swanepoel to Cara Delevingne and everyone in between.
Anyone who knows me well enough knows that I live and breathe Victoria's Secret and despite the not-so-occasional self loathing that watching the show prompts, it's kind of the kick up the ass that myself and most women need to start a) looking after ourselves and b) actually liking ourselves.
Without Victoria's Secret would anyone really go crazy for kale, or hit box fit classes on the regular. Negative. Obviously we do it because it makes us feel good, but it also makes us feel like we're one step closer to that Angel bod. Which is not a bad thing..
So after last week's show I am pretty much motivation nation. Let's just see how long it lasts, I'm sure I'll keep you updated on my fitness exploits.
For now, I'll leave you with some of Angels' best 'You can't sit with us' pics...
