Marni & me

Last week I bought a top from The Outnet, which I always find a brilliant place to buy items you love at prices you can just about cope with! At £87 I thought my choice of a Marni top was a good buy. Why, you could easily spend half that amount of money on a top at Topshop, the same amount at Reiss or even more at Whistles.

I was actually spending my earnings before I'd got them as this week I'm taking a break from writing and doing some fashion teaching. Stepping back into the saddle so to speak found me travelling into central London with my 'armour' an Anya Hindmarch clutch and a Smythson fashion planner inside it.



After a hard days work I returned to find my purchase had been safely delivered. I couldn't wait to try it on and get some quick pics, so forgive the poor photography. I must confess the urgency was based on twitpicing Mrs Bossa!


It's arrived!

I paired it with an Isabella Oliver black pencil skirt

I will be pairing the skirt and top a lot for the A/W season


Excuse the tennis racquet in the background, I realise I might be channelling Anna Wintour!

  1. I too love The Outnet it has rather become my favourite shop especially for essentials as there are a lot of not so essential distractions that end up being just as expensive as full price if you do not wear them xx

  7. Well you know what I think: I love Marni and am supremely jealous. But you look so lovely in it, Kate - the style wouldn't be me, but I did have my eye on a chocolate-coloured top with an exaggerated hourglass shape... (and the stupidly high shoes of course!) x
