Do you guys remember my birthday wish list, where I posted a pic of the most gorgeous coat I’d seen? Well, it so happens that not too long after my birthday a tightly wrapped package arrived with my name on it.
It was from 5Preview and inside was the softest things I’ve touched. I mean, puppies don’t even come close to this. I’ve worn it pretty much every day since and had exactly six people awwing over the feel of it.
Owning a leopard coat has always felt very ‘London’ to me. Wearing a long feline creation together with creepers in a grey brick landscape where the only warmth come from the amber lit pubs is what I dreamed London would be like. My dreamy 16 year old self would be proud.
The tan suede skirt I bought from a Wood Wood sample sale in Shoreditch last week. I’ve been drooling over their SS16 collection ever since I went to their show during Stockholm Fashion Week. The deep tan suede complements the leo pattern so nicely.

Tonight we have a little get together a few friends, where we’re meeting at the Royal Oak on Columbia Road. It’s the same pub where me and my boyfriend Daniel went on our first date almost four years ago. The Christmas market is open late on Wednesdays and we are planning on strolling around in a haze of cloves and pines from Christmas trees, sipping mulled cider or coffee. If this city doesn’t decide to rain away, that is. I’m stunned to say it, but the cold whether is kind of cosy after all.
