BiuBiu Portimao in Purple

One thing BiuBiu is really really good at is to offer quite neutral basic pieces that we all need in our wardrobes, and that can be combined to get the style you want. Usually each style is available in a range of colours, so it's just to pick and choose what you prefer. Compared to Pepperberry who instead offers one colour of the style each season this doesn't "force you" to wear colours that doesn't flatter just to get clothes that fit. :) This specific season I chose to go for red and purple mainly, two colours I know suit me and that fit well into my wardrobe. The first one I will be reviewing here is the Portimao top in purple, in my regular size in jersey from BiuBiu 34BB/BBB.

Bouclé Love from H&M

Last Friday me and my boyfriend were invited to a H&M VIP shopping event. Not really anything VIP about it, but, it's usually quite nice going there and being able to shop without too many people and with the 20% off discount. I usually mainly go for basics, but this time I also found some Christmas presents and, I found a coat I fell in love with the second I saw it.

My love for purple is no secret but I've become very found of bouclé the last one and half year, and then seeing it in one coat, well, I couldn't resist it. Normally i don't even try on woven non-stretch clothes in a store like this, it's extremely rare they fit at all and well, trying to make clothes fit that doesn't is just depressing. This time I was quite lucky though. The 36 I first tried fitted, though it was quite tight. As I prefer a bit more room for a fleece jacket or so beneath I went for the 38 instead.
