Ladies and gents, allow me to introduce THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF SPLURGING EVERY PENNY I OWN ON, PERIOD.
The Allsaints Alford leather biker.
I have been on the lookout for the biker of my life forever, but I never really liked any enough to part with the kind of cash that would buy you a really good quality investment piece...well, until last week...
Cliche I know but it was love at first sight when I saw the Alford biker at Allsaints' Covent Garden store. The shrunken lambskin leather that it's made from gives a really unique look and texture to the jacket which is what first drew me to it...BUT it just kept getting better...
(I'm sorry for interrupting the flow of my insanely cool photos and all but HOW COOL IS THIS SIGN!? - I so just wanted to open the door, I guess the whole danger part had little to no effect as I was just perplexed by how nothingness can be dangerous!? IT CLEARLY ISN'T A VOID IF IT'S 'DANGEROUS', MR SIGN MAKER! It was probably just a massive ditch of some sort but I guess I'll never know now...)
This is the vest that inspired the post's title and um, I think it's pretty damn clever if I'm honest. Okay, I'll stop blowing my own trumpet now. However, what I will do is start talking about my favourite artist for probably the third time since I started my blog now... LAURIE LIPTON! See: 'Pelle Italiano', as I said in that equally leathery post I have a vast collection of pieces from her collection that she designed for Allsaints a couple of years back and this is just another one of many!
(Sorry I always have to upload a few funny ones. This shoot was rather sombre anyway, they were defo needed this time round! Agreed!? Agreed.)
TAH DAH! This is what you were all waiting for! You see, HOW much better did this jacket just get now you know it doubles up as a super chic gilet too! A LOT right!? (worth EVERY damn penny!)
Please find above my trio of delightful accessories. Watch by the fabulously understated and simplistic new watch brand, Larssons and Jennings. This is the limited edition all black 'UMBRA'. My sandals were a steal at a mere £14 from Primarni no less! And lastly but by no means least my beautiful Tresor Paris earrings gifted to me by a little group of leprechauns (aka my cousins in Ireland) on my recent visit to Dublin.
Anyway, I have to be up at 6am for work tomorrow and its already 1.45am here in London, so I'm OUT! I rest assured you love my new biker as much as I do.
