This morning I was just working away happily on my Autumn shopping guides for Stylefish members (yes where I pick items out for them to buy!) and I came across this ‘has it all’ top. If I was to save myself time writing about all the big trends for autumn 2013 I could just show you this top and voila, all the boxes are ticked. Velvet. Tick. Sequins. Tick. Sports luxe. Tick. Lace. Tick. Cut out sleeves. Tick
This is definitely my investment buy of the week and it comes from a gorgeous boutique in Cork called Samui. Clodagh Shorten is the lady in charge in Samui and she has some of my favourite dream after labels including Isabel Marant, Peter Pilotto, Rick Owens and Helmut Lang. I remember dropping into this boutique when I was in college in Cork many years ago and with a thought that one day I would come back and actually be able to afford to buy something! This is definitely the top tempting me to do just that! All you need to do is apply my cost per wear principle. At €375. If you divide that by one wear per week for one year (€375/ 52) that is just €7 per wear. Bargain. I have also included a couple more dream items below as if you weren’t tempted enough to check out this boutique!
