Welcoming autumn with new season at Fairfax & Favor, with Blooming Niki!
With days getting shorter and evenings getting darker, it could only mean one thing; Autumn has arrived! So we thought it would be the perfect time to catch up with Niki from @BloomingNiki for her thoughts on our new AW20 collection!
Grab a cuppa and get stuck in!
Autumn is finally here ... the most beautiful of seasons, when the countryside glows in russet reds, deep rich greens and golden yellow all glistening with morning dew and where the autumnal dappled sunlight is still warm & golden .. can things get any better?
Of course with the change of season comes the almost as wonderful change of wardrobe .. a big time in most of our calendars .. so you can imagine my utter excitement when the delicious guys at Fairfax & Favor asked me to review their new autumn collection .. I mean what a dream come true .. after squealing and doing a super happy dance I got down to the important bit .. reviewing ..
We all know Fairfax & Favor is renowned for its fabulous quality and super style .. once again they have come up trumps, from heeled ankle boots to an everyday essential makeup bag to the iconic gilet and of course the most sumptuous of bags. There there is even more to delight you this season.
One of the must-haves this season without a shadow of doubt will be the Boudica Boots, in three colour ways they not only look fabulous with skirt, dresses and jeans but are the kind of boot to take you from walking around town to walking in the countryside perhaps with a visit to a pub at the end, they just ooze style, they also have a hidden extra bit of wow because these beauties have shearling lining, keeping your feet super warm .. I can confirm the comfort level of these Chelsea style boots are on another level.
I am lucky enough to already own a couple of Fairfax & Favor bags & as I said before the quality is absolutely outstanding, whether you're a small bag or large bag person there is a wonderful selection of styles .. the new additions to the bag family will make it very difficult to chose just the one .. from the Windsor Mini in black .. which goes incredibly well with the Boudica boots to the Large & Mini Windsor which is in the most rich deep conker colour & just to add an extra bit of wow factor it comes in Croc leather. These bags are so stylish; the larger Windsor has enough room to carry everything you need including the kitchen sink (& washing up!) whilst the mini has room enough for your actual essentials which for me is lippy, diary, several to do lists, phone .. and a few other non essentials like the hubbies wallet and car keys .. please tell me I'm not the only one!
Now I'm going to talk about the most amazingly soft .. the most amazingly stylish piece of clothing .. the Elizabeth Gilet, its already available in tan and chocolate .. but this season we get to welcome navy to the family .. a classic colour that goes with absolutely everything .. this gilet is simply beautiful, the shape of it is perfect, it has a slight taper at waist meaning that it gives you a wonderful silhouette, the suede is like butter at room temperature .. and the Toscana Sheepskin which envelopes you will keep you warm and cosy on those chilly days ... this is one utterly stunning piece of clothing.
And there you have it .. a quick run down of some of my favourite items from the fabulous new season with Fairfax and Favor, I think you can tell I absolutely love it .. there is something or should I say several things for everyone .. items that will take you through this fabulous season and beyond.
