buying ahead of the game...
Bonjour from sunny Leeds! Sunny, that is, for a change. Despite the fabulous weather I have mostly been thinking ahead lately and these turbulent moneygeddon-times and planning some out of season fashion purchases such as this sweater dress by KIND KNITWEAR a much coveted luxury brand from the Netherlands to keep me warm when normal service returns in autumn.
My advice for buying out of season is this - go for quality, timeless items that were either stone cold staples (a nice mac, a good plain jumper) or quirky things that were never really in fashion so they won't date. KIND is good because their stuff is different and edgy and generally not high fashion in the sense that it will look totally out of place next winter because it never fitted into any obvious trend anyway.
