After my summer holidays I always seem to fall right into autumn and my hunger to see, feel and wear the new collections is starting to get serious. Don’t get me wrong, I like the summer and I hope we can enjoy it for some time, in fact, I still have 1 week of holiday to do to at the end of september. Meanwhile I am hoping for an ‘indian’ summer. But you know… I’ve seen my summer pieces for a while now and the urge to get me something new is strong. I already shopped some new items 🙂 The summer here in Holland is starting to feel like autumn so I can wear my purchases right away. Unfortunately or should I say happy me?
This petrol blouse I got when I was in Antwerp last friday at River Island. Unfortunately Antwerp does not carry the plussize line anymore. Also River Island in The Hague stopped selling the plus collection. They didn’t even try, it just was available for a few months. It’s so annoying to see that this happens all the time. People don’t even know that’s it’s there, they have to give it some time and invest in it and not pull it out after just 2 or 3 months. Why don’t they communicate that it’s there? Now we are forced, again, to shop online.
Back to the blouse: it’s a size UK18 (EU44) from the straight size collection but as you can see it runs big. Perfect for curvy girls. Loved the color on me and I knew It would be a perfect match for this metallic pleated skirt. Double pleats, yes! I absolutely love the color combination, it reminds me of emeralds and jewels. The skirt I bought last year and didn’t wear it that much, maybe it was waiting for the perfect match? When autumn is here I will wear it with my bordeaux suede ankle boots. Even more colors, I like that! The bag I shopped in Antwerp as well at a vintage store, just love the worn out leather and the gold details.
So how about your autumn cravings? Did you shop some new things already?
What I’m wearing:
Blouse River Island
