Wearing this you have to prepared for a few glances, possibly even the odd comment, but having said that it's actually surprisingly easy to style and wear.
Eeek it was only two weeks ago I was chatting about my new Charlotte Simone scarf (click HERE to read if you missed it) and here we are with yet another purchase from my favourite accessories brand. When I heard the news there was an upcoming sample sale it was impossible to resist! I ended up dragging my darling friend half way across London in a flurry of excitement with one goal in mind, I was going to get my hands on one of her fuzzy bomber jackets!
I’ve lost count of the amount of blogposts I’ve done featuring Charlotte Simone designs, possibly as many as 10, so those who’ve been readers of the blog for a while will already be well aware of my obsession but in case the brand is new to you here is a quick rundown. Charlotte Simone was born out of the idea a single accessory has the ability to create an outfit and so designer and owner, Charlotte Beecham, began creating statement fur and faux scarves. Although the brand is relatively new, it was only founded in 2011, it has had enormous success being stocked in major retailers across the globe and worn by the likes of Olivia Palermo, Rita Ora, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner. In her most recent season she has successfully branched out into hats, keychains and ready to wear.
This coveted sheep shearling bomber is part of Charlotte Simone’s first ready to wear collection for A/W 2015. Like most of Charlotte’s pieces it does have a fairly hefty price tag which is why bagging one in her sample sale was a must for me. Although much like all her other designs, it’s 100% a worthy investment so if you can afford to splash out you won’t be disappointed!

There are a four bomber jacket designs with slight variations, some are fluffier and others have collars but ultimately they all make a BIG statement. I’m wearing the Big Bird Bomber version in a size S/M. Wearing this you have to prepared for a few glances, possibly even the odd comment, but having said that it’s actually surprisingly easy to style and wear. It goes with everything and anything; jeans, dresses, tailored trousers, pyjama style pants or skirts. It’s super warm and cosy and the attention to detail is fab! Can we just take a moment for the incredible candy lining?
Finally if it’s good enough for Olivia Palermo it’s good enough for me!
