The Online Stylist – Winter White and Gold

We were delighted when Amanda Start of The Online Stylist agreed to style an outfit around our limited edition Alpe gold boots.

See how fabulous she looks below –  reposted from her blog.

“…like a magpie drawn to shiny objects, I have something of an obsession for all things glittery – how could I resist?”

Boots

Jumper

Jeans

Full-1Wearing: American Vintage Jacksonville long sleeve tee in Porcelain – c/o Feather & Stitch, Custommade Trine jumper – c/o Feather & Stitch, Denham Cleaner jeans in metallic black – c/o Feather & Stitch, Alpe leather cowboy boots in gold – c/o Feather & Stitch.

I was recently contacted by Richmond based boutique Feather & Stitch and asked if I’d like to style a look based around their fabulous Alpe gold boots. Clearly they’ve been reading the blog and know that like a magpie drawn to shiny objects, I have something of an obsession for all things glittery – how could I resist?

Wanting a look that would do the boots justice, I settled for some pieces that would fulfil my winter white fantasies whilst dealing with another obsession…coated jeans. I layered the gloriously cozy, open knit Custommade Trine jumper over a super soft American vintage long sleeved tee. The jeans are by Denham and have a metallic wax coating that for me, makes them the next best thing to leather leggings…except with more comfort factor. I love these and wore them again at the weekend to see Jamie Cullum play at Portsmouth Guildhall – the perfect gig jeans!

Feather-Stitch-About

After working for Philip Green as a fashion buyer, mum of two Fiona Sanderson put her eye for gorgeous detailing and love of Danish designers to good use and opened Feather & Stitch in 2008. Handpicking pieces from labels such as By Malene Birger, Pyrus, Maison Scotch and Des Petits Hauts she went on to launch the online store in December 2012. For a peek in store and more about Fiona, there’s a great interview here.

Meanwhile I’m planning on wearing my boots as many times as possible in the run up to the festive season…not that glitter needs any excuse!
