Sale shopping at Alexander Mcqueen

last weekend during the frantic and manic boxing day sales, i managed to pick up two items from alexander mcqueen. i've decided not to go for statement pieces, but spending money on items that will give me more wear and mileage over the years. i went for the above cashmere/wool henley top, simple but beautifully made. the fabric is soft as can be. a wardrobe classic/staple, i love.

the henley top also made a "blink and you might missed it" appearance in the alexander mcqueen fall winter 2009 show.

and i might need that leather torso piece as i appear to have a saggy moob moment above. err, no really no. i also bought the navy blue shirt/sweater 2 in 1 combo piece. i love pieces like that, i actually go round collecting pieces like these. it's great for lazy days, i can put on a t-shirt underneath and head to work. again a really nice piece that will give me lots of mileage over the years.

probably overused the term, but investment pieces these really are.

my outfit for the little shopping weekend: burberry prorsum cashmere/wool khaki military knit, green polo ralph lauren shirt, cheap monday indigo denims, brown christophe lemaire shearling lined boots, purple paul smith scarf and smelling of cire trudon 'ernesto'.

happy shopping!



  1. This is my dilemma for yoox sales, basic vs statement. The basics I can get anywhere, yet the statement I may not get as much wear out of. I wish I could find a happy middle piece. The henley looks like a good pick and your Burberry sweater is very nice.

  2. you're really keen on spotting pieces from runway even if it was covered by a torso that gets you all the attention. You look great in both of them:)

  3. I think the leather torso might work very well underneath that henley too ;)
    The Burberry Prorsum knit looks great

  4. Hey I thought this was a great post, I reall like the outfit you wore on your xmas hunt. I have a question is there a chance you can help me find boots that are lined with sheepskin? I am looking for something average price not too expensive. (£50-£150) If you know of any places, I would greatly appreciate it. Great post! Thanks.

  5. hey!! how are the fits on the alexander mcqueen tops? are they more loose or fitted? Because im thinking of buying the grey sweatshirt with cuff detail - the one on your wishlist to the right!!

  6. mcqueen fits small, so i would suggest picking one size up. i don't like my tops too tight. the blue sweater above is size L whereas i'm a usual size M / 48.

  7. thanks so much for the advice! will keep you posted on how it goes! =)

  8. Wow! great blog awesome collection, Thanks for sharing this with us.

  9. Love it :)
