Andrea Moore has been my go to fashion source since 2013 and alas they are no more.
|And yes I have this cashmere jumper in my wardrobe|
Despite what my colleagues think I am not a great shopper. I like to shop in places where I am guaranteed success. I can't stand going from shop to shop trying things on for no reward.
I had a brief foray into Kate Sylvester (a possible replacement for Andrea) but I was not that thrilled by the clothes on offer and the two tops I tried on were less than stellar. The v-neck top was extremely low cut and the shop assistant's answer was to wear a cami underneath. Not a solution. The garment should fit. The stripe top was a heavy knit that was already coming apart at the shoulder seam. I might be accidentally giving up RTW.
The loss of Andrea has hit hard so to help my grieving process I am documenting some (not all) of her wonderful clothes that reside in my wardrobe.

Don't really think the photos are glamorous but I love the photo collage frame.
Andrea Moore topsThe clothes I generally make are tops so my Andrea Moore tops have not had much of an outing on the blog but there are many of them. I picked them out for a special wardrobe shot (I did say there were a lot).
Or how about a couple of silk t-shirts from SS15 in fabulous prints.
Or just plain ol' cotton t-shirts
Pure Andrea Moore outfits

|AM Diamond top with Surreal trousers (the zigzag print incorporates a giraffe head) with UN Edge black white mix booties|

The Great OutdoorsOn the left is the origami cat trench, a wardrobe staple for longer than I care to remember, and I always get compliments when I wear it. I love the fur bomber jacket, on the right, so much that I have two this one in black and a blue one.
And sadly this isn't true...
A parting shot: the AW17 window display with the wonderful ginkgo print.
