WIT Search

I shop from my shoots

One of the promises I made myself when I started WIT was that I was never going feature anything I wouldn't recommend buying or buy myself, though admittedly sometimes that is in a distant won-the-lottery fantasy world! I see a lot of amazing clothes, bags and shoes and resisting the temptation is at time is really hard. Recently I found myself lusting after some of the clothes I used in my shopping pages and some that I wore in my shoots, so today I thought I would highlight some tried and tested items that I have invested in... and I'm afraid that from the March issue there will be more!

It was love at first sight with these Sophia Webster shoes from my January Style Essay, but at full price they were well beyond my reach. I bagged them at a sale and cannot wait for the weather to get better to start wearing them with everything from pencil skirts to frayed jeans. Sophia Webster shoes £180.00 

One of the things I love about fashion is that it's fun and experimental, six months ago I didn't think I would like to wear a bomber jacket but as I was compiling Red's "Try something new" page for the January issue, I fell in love with this wool navy bomber jacket which I suggest to pair with a feminine dress or a statement skirt. 

I loved the jeans I wore for our February denim challenge, especially the ankle skimming length and the comfy fit which makes them perfect for my Friday's with Greta and week ends. Finding a pair of jeans that look good on me (I'm short and everything is a bit long on me) is a holy grail so I had to make the investment.  GENETIC DENIM The Shya skinny mid-rise jeans £255.00

Don't forget to enter a competition that will give you and a friend the opportunity to win a Selfridges Denim Lab voucher worth £360.00 to spend in store or on line on two pairs of jeans!

To enter the competition all you have to do is:

1) Ask a friend to style you in an outfit wearing your favourite pair of jeans 

2) Tweet your picture to @redmagdaily  or Instagram it to @redmagazine

4) Cross your fingers and hope I pick you as the lucky winner!

Good luck!

You found/ bought great stuff, love all them, but especially the bomber - propably because I was just on the lookout for one myself, and "had" to buy three different ones (two went back and one from Whistles was a keeper).

I've always liked the fact that your Red shoots offer wearable takes on a trend and this post only proves it! I'm loving that bomber jacket and the jeans, too (as a fellow short person, I understand the length dilemma all too well).

Laura, I hate when people choose 'fail' on your outfits! Love that you experiment, but still look so classy and pulled together! 'Love!' from the USA!
