I love the High street as I love the buzz of having something new to wear but these pieces often don’t stand the test of time and I end up selling on my Ebay shop.
When I do invest, I know I will have the pieces for ever and now that I have a daughter I have this idea of passing them on to her. I know the worst excuse ever for shopping!
I have been buying pieces from Dawn Fitzgerald a hugely talented Irish designer for years. She has a shop in Dublin but comes to London regularly. Think of Dior but at affordable prices. She only uses the best fabrics and she cuts for real women. I live in casual wear but Dawn has opened my eyes to dressing in a more feminine fashion. I was scared of this’ look ‘as felt it is ageing and not very comfortable but not Dawn’s clothes, it is also important to evolve your personal style.
The pieces I have bought from Dawn over the years are like pieces of art and I always go to them when I want to feel dressed ! I hope you love them as much as I do, I will be featuring more by Dawn of the next months. Her cashmere coats are so light weight and soft , this was my birthday present this year and I cannot wait for Winter ! Contact me if would like to know when Dawn is next over. The cashmere coats are made to measure, you select your own cashmere, lining and style so it is one of a kind and for a similar price tag to Max Mara.
