Spotted: Atterley Road

Recently, I’ve been looking towards a more grown up, streamlined and simplistic style for my Autumn/Winter outfits. I don’t know what has prompted the changed, but  I feel more like inventing my own take on the trends than slavishly following them. Maybe it’s the advent of the cooler months resurecting my favourite styles and colours that makes me veer towards my signature style, but viewing a lot of the high street collections just hasn’t been doing it for me like it did early in the year as the spring summer collections flooded in. I’ve been looking for less pieces of higher quality and with serious wardrobe miles in them. Enter Atterley Road.

Have you seeen the adverts for Atterley Road, ALL over the internet recently? It was through one of those ads that I clicked through to the site and found a really great concept – designed to feel like shopping on your favourite high street (a London-ism for sure,) but online, there’s an edited selection of pieces – ‘the best of brands you know and love – with new labels you’ll grow to love.’ Snappy style guides are regularly produced addressing fashion trends people like you or I need – a collection of knits for the wintery weather, your work wear wardrobe sorted or a capsule collection of key pieces every girl needs. And I think the selection is impeccable.

You’ll find my favourites like Whistles, NW3 by Hobbs and Hunter, and cooler labels like IRO, Ash and Des Petites Hauts. As I was doing a bit of window shopping I thought I would put a couple of outfits together to solve some of my own dilemma’s right now and demonstrate the breadth and quality available.

There isn’t a huge selection, but that’s because they have done the legwork for you. Need a work skirt? Find the perfect pencil style easily. Statement dress or weekend, reassuringly, dresses are the largest section and there’s all the finishing touches too, including jewellery, bags and shoes. 🙂

I can see I’m going to be spending a lot of time on the Atterley Roadsite and quite possibly a lot of money! Have you heard of Atterley Road and do you like my outfit choices?

Friday Frock O’clock

Rather than my usual interest in trend-led fashion this week I’ve been working on my, ahem, work wardrobe. I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t wear ‘office wear’ for my job as a GP. I also don’t dress how you would probably expect a GP to dress. I have several requirements for my work clothes. They must be washable (I do hand wash, but rarely bother to get to the dry cleaners,) appropriate in a professional sense (no gaping bust or skirts that ride up,) both when standing and sitting, and be comfortable. That said, I like to show a bit of FF style personality!

So, I found this dress in the French Connection sale and snapped it up.


Raquella Dress, French Connection sale

It’s in a washable cotton, has the tiniest hint of a peplum, in a figure flattering fitted shape. Add to that my favourite navy shade and a pattern that remains professional yet has some personality about it, and I’m all set for the working day, not forgetting my patent satchel and pretty blue brogues for a serious touch 😉

Spotted: The Mulberry Harriet

I try to be democratic on Florence Finds, and cover clothes for all budgets, but sometimes Florence must imitate life and reflect something I have been coveting beyond all reason, beyond financial sense.

Today, that lust after item is one of my all time favourite brands, Mulberry. Going from strength to strength and even seeing sales rise despite the recession, it’s not hard to see why when they produce such stylish yet classic bags.

Today, I’m sharing my favourite from the recent early collection releases… The Mulberry Harriet bag.

Ok, they’re astronomically expensive, but there are times in life when you need a treat, a windfall perhaps, a work bonus or inheritance, hell even a lottery win. Particularly when the weather is like it has been recently, some online window shopping is most definitely allowed.

I’m not sure I’m 100% on the sludgy green colour, although I imagine it would look fabulous with neutrals, but I am in LOVE with the satchel in navy spongey patent. And could that shade of nude-beige look anymore luxe?

No, I didn’t think so either.

So just close one eye, squint a little and block out the price, then tell me your favourite. Let’s lust after them together…

Love,
Rebecca
