jasper jacket.

'The wand chooses the wizard, Harry Potter.' Wise words Mr Ollivander, ones which I have easily adapted to justify my latest investment. I didn't choose the jacket, the jacket chose me... I swear. I first laid eyes on the Veda Jasper jacket after being introduced to Basically Boutique earlier this year. Although initially taken aback by the price, the jacket had earned the Man Repeller tick of approval, an opinion which I regard highly and trustworthy. The deal was sealed when I tried on Dimitra's one when I met her for coffee the other week. It fit like a glove. Clearly it was meant to be. Or at least I tell myself that.

You may have heard about a little e-store by the name of Basically Boutique (because I haven't done two posts about them in the last week or so). Anyway they are now officially open for business so head on over and check out what they have to offer. They're offering 10% off all purchases until July 8 so now you have more incentive to buy buy buy, just enter NOWOPEN at the checkout. There's free postage with any order over $200 and it comes in a beautifully packaged box. I was lucky enough to score a little pre-sale item and win the title of 'first customer'. I never win anything, so this achievement is something to be proud of. I can't win a race or the lottery, but apparently I can win at shopping. 


  1. You had me at the Harry Potter reference, but this jacket is just amazing. It reminds me of a Rag and Bone one that I would kill someone to obtain. It's just so classic and timeless!
