Come Around

Now that it seems to be freezing in Sydney,* my New York Winter bundle-up isn’t so irrelevant after all.

  • Stunning look and love your skirt. :)

  • mcboodles

    Perhaps being a Gemini facilitates your skill with layering. Clothes for two worn well by one. But who the hell pays attention to star signs these days anyway?

  • So Prefect Margaret!

  • so stunning! I bumped into you outside MBFW on the day you were wearing that Marimekko coat and I totally fan girled so hard! (it was so so embarassing) xx

  • Irene Laura
  • Impeccable layering skills!

  • fixatedfaiyaz

    Stunning as always. What would we do without Uniqlo’s heattech thermals.

  • Aleksandar Nastasijevic

    This is completely true!

  • This is a great point! Do you sacrifice space in storing all of your hoarded items? How do you save space?

    Love the skirt in this outfit, too.

  • lucy

    where are the leather trousers from!?

  • This outfit is bang on! Love it. xx

  • Rhea

    I love every piece here Margaret! Beautiful! And I have often wondered about trend recycling and how 2015 would be projected in the years to come. Always good to read your thoughts!

  • Gorgeous outfit, the neck fuzz is the bomb!

  • I love the skirt. Such a bold design it’s gorgeous.

  • That jacket is amazing!!

  • Full circle, yes:)It’s just we don’t always have the patience to store items for years..better to forget all a bout them, I guess, and dig up a treasure a year later. We all love surprises. Luckily, I forgot to throw away my old flare jeans:)

  • Absolutely in love with the look!


  • Kay Young

    Is that skirt really from Zara? The link doesn’t work.

  • Olivia Crisp

    Where did you get your zip leggings from? I have been trolling the internet trying to find them and no such luck :( I would love a pair, they would be amazing for the cold winter ahead! xx

  • I applaud you for your amazing writing Margaret, if it were to be in a reality show, I would give you a standing ovation.

  • Yes! I relate to this so much. I have terrible hoarding tendencies. However after a couple years or so, unloved pieces always somehow work their ways back to the front of my closet. On a slightly more relevant note, your look here is so incredibly chic that I’m speechless.

  • How are you not a Gemini – I mean, look at the way the way you write! ;)

  • carla sanfratello

    I discovered today your blog and I felt in love in the first second!


  • Killer look Margaret! <3 J'adore!
    Now if only I can emulate winter looks in the heat of Singapore weather lol

  • Anea Duratovic

    Such a chic look! I am also a hoarder…

  • I almost got this skirt from Zara but I ended up going with the faux leather midi beige skirt! This is still gorgeous, especially with the black patent leather booties.


  • this is a dream of skirt! is really pretty and in perfect for everybody shape!

  • Hattie

    Just come across your website and it’s absolutely beautiful. Think I’m already hooked!

  • Veena

    Love the play on textures! Fur and leather makes a really great combo!

    I love the way you write! You create such a story with every post and give us a glimpse of your personality too. I love that you’re an overall creative and cannot be put in a box. Labels bother me too.

  • Julia Fuller

    One of the many delights of your style is that it can be tweaked and borrowed for someone who is not a clone of you! This post inspired my minimalist heart and I just found that skirt NWT on eBay; thanks for the inspire! and get some sleep!

  • forglamsake

    Beautifully written, Margaret. You have such a way with words. It’s just fashion, but heck it’s like you are writing about a family member. I love that! I have a few garments in the wardrobe that are easily over 10years old (perhaps more- cripes I’m showing my age!!) and they look as good now as they did back then. A denim witchery trench coat which is so amazing I wonder why Witchery don’t release it again! And a camel knee-length skirt with folder over front split (similar to the one you are wearing). They both have a 70s feel and I will never let them go, because, like you said, it all ends up coming up full circle :)

  • adam

    perfect match!

  • Lala SKY

    I see this no style try hard to create end up with whatever found in wardrobe … No offence but Australians generally have no sense of fashion same goes 100% for Chinese as the only think important for Asian market is the name of brand and nothing more …I’m talking with many years of experience being evolved in fashion, and been to many places seen many faces …this is definitely not what everybody claimes to be !

  • Holasz Kati

  • Marija
