BANANA REPUBLIC @ Zalando sleeveless jacket, blouse, leather trousers & metallic bag | RAY BAN @ Zalando sunglasses
Bonjour, bonjour! Today's outfit is entirely from good old Banana Republic, who've recently started stocking at Zalando. It's a brand I'm often drawn to because of their expert tailoring (you need all the help you can get when you're petite to avoid looking like a small, walking ball of material) and because of their general smart-vibe.. I've always been drawn to work clothes; even as a little chiddler I decided I wanted to work in an office so I could 'dress like a real grown-up'. As good a reason as any, if you ask me. Zalando are one of the only UK retailers who currently stock them and, juuust in case you weren't aware, Zalando are basically Germany's answer to ASOS, stocking a million and one brands all on one wonderful website. They've got everything from the high-end, like Tibi, Reiss and Love Moschino, to brands like Miss Selfridge and Quay so there's a little sum' sum' for everyone there. They offer free delivery too which I'd feel it'd be rude not to mention.
Well, I should go. Winter has well and truly hit Scotland and our heating thought, 'yes, this is a very opportune time to break', so I'm struggling to feel my fingers as I type. I'm going to use this as an excuse to bury them, and my face, in a nice hot pizza.
