Loving some AllSaints.

I love AllSaints.  Not only do I love their urban styling but their flagship store in Spitalfields is just across the road from my London pad and The Golden Heart, where we have had many a lively night before a curry on Brick Lane.  Wearing my AllSaints brings me closer to home and another great bonus is that you rarely see anyone else here in Atlanta wearing it.  I tend to order it online as I can get it tax free due to them not having a stand alone store here in Atlanta, but Bloomingdale’s in Lenox Mall has a great concession managed by the fabulous Charlie.  If you go tell him I sent you – he will treat you like a star!

Yes they are a little more expensive than a lot of other high street stores but they have a great sale every 6 months and their knitwear especially is so unique it is, in my eyes, worth it.  I also love their tops and I have a couple of dresses too, oh and my leather straight leg trousers are AllSaints too.  Yes I have quite a thing for them.  Lots of raw edging, exposed seams, asymmetric drapey hems and an industrial palette gives their clothes a great urban vibe, but they are equally wearable, and I have found, in the main, that they are good quality – though I did have a t-shirt that had to go back twice due to the fabric weakening from the dying process – I gave up on it sadly, though I loved it so much!

So today I am wearing my Express blush jeans and Ash Thelma wedges with my AllSaints Pipali top and AllSaints Itat shrug.  They are the perfect tops for layering on another beautiful Fall day.  I love the skinny arms on their knitwear.

Right now I am wishing the week away as I am desperate for a haircut on Friday!

    I just love that Pipili top! It’s so pretty! I tried on a shrug like yours at my yoga studio. It’s made by Pure Karma, but looks similar. Might get it now that I’ve seen how great that kind of shape can look with “real” clothes!

      Hello and thanks so much for stopping by, reading and commenting:) Don’t worry about the Itat – I have 2 and they are fun to wear. Put it on over your head so the cross is at the front, then lift the crossed piece over behind your head so it becomes a collar. You should now be wearing it like a cardigan – with a collar and a ‘keyhole’ opening at the back. I use the kilt pin to then fasten it at the front. I think there are also instructions on their website http://www.us.allsaints.com – I love the shrug – so light and easy to wear over a tank! xx
