A JUMPER FOR JANUARY

It's January in London.  It may not be as cold as it could be but it's been grey.  

The seasonal sales had lost their initial excitement and it was just too early to contemplate those first few black and white pieces for Spring that had appeared in the shops.  Something was needed though to add some sparkle to a dark month.

With the temptation of an H&M £5 discount voucher in my bag, I went to buy a jumper that I'd previously noticed in the Divided range.  In a fine, sparkly knit with a heathery, tweed effect, it is fashionably short at the front and longer at the back.  I will wear it over jeans, over a dress, over a fine shirt with collar........




To complement the colour mix of mauve/pink, blue, black and coppery gold, I have brought out old favourites from my makeup bag - YSL Rouge Pur Couture Golden Lustre lipstick in Violet Singulier (101) and Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Blue Rebel (553).




It's amazing how a little bit of "retail therapy" can lift the gloom.
