WEARING

In preparation and celebration of the sun coming out I’ve taken to dying my hair grey (a stylish interpretation of this fashionable stress) and I’ve been parading around town in brown (and beige and white). Perfect, because my MERCI ME LONDON wardrobe is prime provider of this look! I’m finding that the Calla coat with all its admirers is becoming a staple piece that I’m sure will be worn even when the season has completely turned. It’s meant to be a transitional piece; spring to summer and summer to Autumn but I’ll probably be wearing this coat pre, during and post season. I’ll even coin it the summer coat. It now exists, it isn’t a myth, no, in this season – temperamental London it’s fact and necessity!

WHITE WINTER

So Instead of wishing for a white christmas, I created my own white winter and wore all white everything. In fact this season I am more drawn to white than any other colour. I’m suspiciously drawn to it. Nope, I’m not considering it’s cold outside and the expectation to wear brown, dark greens, blacks and blues for the end of the year. But in fact, white is so clean and defining it’s super hard for me to resist. Particularly in contrast to scenery – you stand out like a star in a dark sky. I think I may have just discovered my suspicious reasoning.
