[Craving] Marks and Spencers do Burberry Metallics

For me one brand that gets over looked time and time again is Marks and Spencers. Yes, it probably is the only place you, your mother and your grandmother could find suitable underwear but that doesn't make it uncool. It makes it suitable for all.  Their Limited Collection was my secret little haunt for office-appropriate clothing when I needed to be smarter for work, and it just gets better and better every season. Their lazer cut silver leather skirt from last year was the show-stopper in my wardrobe last season as it was a dead ringer to the Giles Deacon one (here), and this year they've produced Burberry Prorsum-like shirt which is getting a lot of press at the moment. See below...


I'm sorry to harp on, but  I feel like someone needs to fly a flag for good old M&S. That shirt is so similar, why would you ever buy the Burb one? And as you save over £350, you can buy 200 packets of Percy Pigs and the most comfortable pair of heels ever from their Insolia range which in my humble opinion every girl should own (here they are in nude, and here they are in black). They also created a similar leather skirt to the Giles Deacon copy last season, with an added Burberry-ness to it here for £149 - which is a steal for leather of that quality. Well done, Marks and Spencer - you have come up trumps yet again. Amen.

I adored this when I saw it at their press day and it's definitely one of my fave pieces for the season. Limited Collection have some amazing bits and bobs at the moment!
