daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: what i wore, wiwt, ootd, temperley london for filofax, ikat organiser, cape coat, how i style, AW12

Look styled for Temperley London x Filofax. Cape coat, Temperley London, styled with: Shirt, Alice for Temperley; Charcoal grey LND material legging jeans, c/o AG Adriano Goldschmied; Black 'Aggie' boots, ASOS; Yellow Ikat organiser, Filofax; Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in Kiss of Life.
Ever since I paid £3.99 for my first Gossip Girl novel at the age of thirteen, I've been a devoted Blair Waldorf minion. I've been through the headband phase, spending mornings on immaculate curls, and even dabbled in the tights era, before resolutely going back to my own preppy crossed with eclectic prints style, but when I headed to Temperley London's showroom a few weeks ago and laid eyes on this cape coat, it was all things Team Waldorf once more.

I styled the cape coat with an Alice Temperley shirt and my AG Adriano's once more for a look that felt decidedly Upper East Side (as well as a little Hogswartsian), prancing around in the rain in Notting Hill. The fastening detail is absolutely beautiful, as is the rope trim, although it doesn't provide much by way of arm-warmth!

Also in the look is the yellow Ikat Filofax, which I've completely warmed to, a zip-up organiser that doubles as a clutch if you remove the ring binder inside. I loved the yellow against black, with a burst of red via the shirt applique and Rimmel's Kate Moss lipstick Kiss of Life. Who would've thunk it? Colour and capes in one swift look.

Tonight I'm headed to Westfield, Shepherd's Bush, to watch my girl Taylor Swift switch on the Christmas lights. Too excited for words. It's been a while, Tay...

  8. I'm glad to know someone else read the GG books before too! My mum went to LA when I was 12 and brought back a book for me, I was obsessed and read all of the books, and went through a headband phase too! I was annoyed to see Vanessa wasn't bald when they cast the TV show! xx

  11. Oh Michelle, you always manage to sell me something without actually selling it. Your cape is amazing, I tried one on yesterday (in a charity shop, not alice unfortunately!) and now i want it because of how well you look in yours! But to be fair alice is amazing this season.. I love trying on her dresses at work.. It's like lace city there!xx

  14. The cape is just beautiful. I've never wanted a cape until now, and it's absolutely a NEED IT NOW moment.

    Hope the wait was worth it for the Christmas lights.
