Fall/Winter Wish List

Wednesday 24 September 2014
Outfit: (tried on) Etoilé Isabel Marant Joff jacket, Zara jeans, Alexander Wang t-shirt, Hermes belt and Nicholas Kirkwood heels (old but more here)

Wish List

3. Hermés Collier de Chien bracelet

I had a chance to try on the latest Isabel Marant Fall/Winter collection at their preview event recently but it was the Etoilé line that caught my eye more. The price tags from the Etoilé range didn't make me break out in hives as much as the mainline. The Caja top is a reissue from Isabel Marant's previous collections. There's a similar version in black from  the main collection at more than double the price.

I was captivated by the black Joff jacket. It comes in red too but since my favorite color is black, I naturally gravitated towards the dark side. Funnily enough, I normally take a size 38 but the one I tried on was a 40. Though I'm not exactly endowed with Marilyn Monroe sized boobies, I would've struggled to button up had it been a size 38. Ahhh.....Isabel Marant...please consider those with a slightly more *ahem* padded upper torso. A friend mentioned that the shoulders are a little too wide but I've noticed that nearly all my IM jackets have exaggerated shoulders anyway. I love the slightly nipped waist which adds a touch of femininity and the 4 (!!) pockets (hands up those who love pockets as much as I do).

I've never really bothered much with pants but lately, I'm tired of the same boring skinny jeans. Thus began another quest to find a pair with an added oomph. These R13 waxed jeans are waaaaay high up on my wish list at the moment. I haven't found a cheaper alternative. Another missing gap in my closet is a pair of black heeled ankle boots. I still think Isabel Marant Dicker boots are universally flattering and comfortable. Too bad she doesn't make them in my size. Their smallest size runs big too..... Argh. Bummer. I might give these Office chelsea boots a try instead.

What's your fall/winter wish list? Scored anything lately?


  1. Love your shoes and the jacket is gorgeous, so many lovely things to put on the wish list!

  2. Ugh - now I want that jacket! Thanks so much for the sizing tip! As usual, all of your picks are spot-on!!

  3. I love the style & shape of the jacket Marlene & the longer length is great for the colder months too! Ax

  4. Is it just me or are the Isabel Marant jackets always worn better a size up? I generally find them to be so slim cut! I really adore this one though, and the four pockets - kinda means there's no need for a bag which is sorta perfect if you want to go hands free (which honestly, I dream of being able to do one day.. haha)

    1. Mwahahaha..........that's a self effacing laugh from me only because pigs will grow wings and fly if I can go one day without a bag even wearing a jacket with 4 pockets. If anything, her sizing is consistently inconsistent :P
