Mabille’s Autumn Gifts

Alexis Mabille wrapped up a few gifts for us, this Autumn. While not a girly girl who like bows, there was something about unwrapping one of these…

Aw, all gift wrapped, for moi? You totally should have!

No, it’s not the whole suit I love – it’s that tie with that collar and um, who is wearing it.

And I’m not sure why I like these at all. They are coral + suede + have bows – all things I normally do not agree with, but sometimes a girl wants a little pretty. I think that teeny bow at the bottom of the heel was what won me over.

It wasn’t just bows – the ties came in different shapes. Love the vertical split on the skinny ones. I like my ties, my pants and my men on the skinny side.

Bows weren’t the only detail Mabille showed. Fur added a feminine touch to tailored suits and coats, and even softened a rectangular shopper (but my, my, those scarlet nails have to go!).

But my favourite piece at Mabille? The gorg grey suit, with stocking detail skinnies – in a traditional men’s suiting fabric.

Lu-uv. Wa-ant.

Now that's what I call a business suit!
