Marks & Spencer…As Seen in VOGUE…Hallelujah!

Yes you saw right…M&S as seen in Vogue!!  Now you know I LOVE M&S… (hey my blog name is based on my obsession) so imagine my delight that style bible Vogue is now featuring M&S????!!!!!!

Sorry for the exuberant use of exclamation and question marks but I am so excited.  M&S have had some hits and misses over the years but they have really been upping their fashion game the past year or so.  Therefore, it is a delight to see more and more M&S products seen in editorials for fashion magazines such as Marie Claire and now Vogue!  My only hope is that most of these pieces come to HK!!!  (Subtle hint and prayer there!)  I have spent many years proudly announcing that I bought a lot of my clothing from M&S and now my decisions seem vindicated (not that I really need it but nice to see Fashion Editors of major publications agreeing with me)…he he he not such a fashion horror now am I?

Loving this pale brocade jacket which is a great transitional piece for cooler Spring weather to Summer.  Also for Autumn to Winter (think icy cool tones for Winter).  This jacket is a perfect piece to add to any woman’s wardrobe.  Wear as suggested with a classic white blouse or follow the monochrome trend wearing a black shift dress, or sleek pencil skirt or even a sleek cigarette black pant.

As it was the year of the Snake is upon us, I am loving the nod to Chinese culture with this vintage inspired snake necklace.  (Unfortunately out of stock online)  HK – is in stores?  Would expect it to be a BIG seller!!


Simple Classics & Separates

I love the white blouse (very reminiscent of my VAUGHAN blouse) which is a classic staple for any woman’s wardrobe with sleek dark trousers – this is a great look for work, evening (with the strappy sandals) or even a smart casual look for lunch/dinner with the girls.  I am love, love, loving the bag.  In season snake print (well in season definitely for me as I am in HK for the Year of the Snake – call me superstitious!)   Roomy and versatile, it makes a great shoulder bag as well as an amazing large clutch!!  THIS IS THE M&S BAG I WANT!!!!!

The skinny denim/jeggings that they recommend are definitely available in HK, approximately HK$399, I can tell you they are definitely one of my key pieces in my wardrobe right now.  Smart enough to wear to functions but still comfortable enough to run around doing errands.

Loving the way that this leather jacket was paired with a sleek black office dress to give a normal office look a little bit of edge!  Also the geometric necklace is super cute.

I am so so delighted to see this news on the M&S website.  Hopefully most of these pieces will be available in HK stores but if not then M&S ship to HK.  Just be aware of the shipping prices.  Well done M&S, I LOVE YOU!
It is amazing what a great model and some fantastic styling can do with high street pieces and make them editorial worthy!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE….keep it going M&S!!
