touch me not

Just some notes from what has struck me as I shop online and in shops over the past few months. I'm really in love with texture and contrast at the moment. I wear simple things, and I think clean shapes really liven up with fabrics and details that play with the eye.
This Isabel Marant tux jacket with that amazing leather lapel makes me see why she's suddenly hot - despite the hype she must make some really good clothes.
I adore this Carven dress - I love a contrast collar and the ruching really brings the dress to life in a subtle way. Rather clingy for my taste but it's still a great dress I want to see on somebody.
Saw these Céline boots when I passed the shop yesterday - that gold heel! And it's the perfect heel height for me - it's so hard to find shoes with a low blocky heel that isn't dowdy. I tried the classic Ferragamo Vara pumps but they weren't all that comfortable and far too expensive.
This woolly Zara top made me feel all hot and itchy looking at it until I touched it - it's really really soft and silky to the touch. I'm very intrigued - it's a T-shirt with such a great tactile element.
I've been musing over these loafers for a while - I love leopard print when it actually has that "hair" texture. Unfortunately, they weren't quite comfortable enough for me to pay that kind of money for them.
