So… last week I went to Corte Inglês and this happened.
I was looking for a new wallet, because my beloved Miu Miu was starting to show a bit of wear (and after a year and a half it’s no wonder), but I wasn’t really expecting to find one.
This model had apparently just arrived (although I think it’s an old release in the US) and they had it in this colour (red) and in dark blue. For those not familiar with Michael Kors leather accessories, they do a lot of stuff using this Saffiano leather, which is basically cow leather treated to give it a rough texture. This makes the leather really resistant.
If like me you throw your wallet into a handbag full of pens, keys, and other random knick knacks, then I can tell you that this kind of leather is fantastic. Plus a pretty colour and a bow? SOLD.

This last Sunday I went to Colombo to do some shopping I needed (a clutch for a wedding, a belt, a key holder, some sweaters, a perfume). I got some things, other didn’t have much luck. I ended up popping into Parfois, Sephora, Pepe Jeans and Body Shop.
With the warmer weather finally making an appearance, and feeling like a change in footwear was in order, I decided a pair of ankle boots was just the thing.
My standard winter boots are a pair of simple cowboy boots, with a 3 cm heel, in brown, so as a spin-off of that I went looking for something in a similar style (these are my second pair of Texan style boots), but ankle high and with a little bit of bling.
Lately the fashionable thing seems to be very clunky, round boots, which I absolutely detest. So I did a little online browsing. Which unfortunately for me means: I went to Net-a-Porter.
Boot after boot, and finally I spotted these: the Rag and Bone Harrow Biker boot in a burgundy tone (actual colour name: Port. Appropriate.)
