My lovely client Amelia wears OBE Jacket, from Labels Of Late, made in New Zealand. The kiwi woman is very fond of black. If you must do it, ensure it has a design feature such as this draw cord ruffle neckline, or the raw edging feature, adds interest with texture and a little drama, polished off with red lippy.
Amelia wears Trelise Cooper Jacket, reminiscent of Paddington Bear and London central, a timeless classic, fabulous dressed up or down think casual or dressy with black or blue denim or a pencil skirt and smart boots. Brand new, still with original price tag intact - was many hundreds down only to one at Labels Of Late.
This delightful lady and customer of Labels Of Late agreed to be my muse, she wears dress by Jacques Ruc, and Italian 100% wool scarf. This comfy jersey dress was the perfect choice for her, given her warm olive skin and jade colour eyes complement the dress pattern with rich autumn tones.
This gorgeous lady and Labels Of Late customer became the proud owner of this Italian leather Jacket and agreed to pose for me. I love the neckline with the zip detail, so unique with exquisite tailoring. Yes, it is black but a high quality leather jacket is a staple in every woman's wardrobe. When purchasing your leather jacket, consider it's point of difference and if need be, lightening it with a bright block colour or patterned scarf.
I couldn't resist purchasing this Carla Zampatti confection from Labels Of Late. It's a wonderful mix of Angora and Wool, practically brand new, a great bargain and a versatile hue.
Check out this Country Road bundle of deliciousness. Such a pretty colour to lift you when skies are grey, as they often are in Christchurch Fall-Winter! Powder blue goes with a surprising number of essential base colours; black, aubergine and navy to name a few.
