One dreary day at the start of the week whilst at work praying for the weekend to come sooner, and browsing Matches (in my defence it was lunch time, well err I was eating – that counts right?), I was having a mooch at what they had left in their sale when I came across a dapper Burberry Prorsum shirt. Queue a few days later, and hello lovely courier delivery of said shirt (speaking of which check out the Matches box I got this time!). I actually wore it this afternoon; we had to take my cat Prada to vets – she got dribble, and cat snot all over the Burberry London shirt I was wearing so I had to change before heading back to work. Prada (I named her years ago; don’t laugh!) has cat flu, the vet gave her an injection, and prescribed her a course of antibiotics for a few days – she now appears to be on the mend thank goodness.
I have commented before how I am rather fond of the Matches packaging. The boxes are designed by the artist Ann Muir, and I am building up quite a collection of them. I reuse them for extra storage in my wardrobe – it would be a waste not to.
As you can see I am tired (long day!), I need to do my hair, and I have not quite mastered this posing malarky (bring back summer – outdoor photographs are so much easier!!). Excusing my appearance, and moving on you can appreciate the Burberry Prorsum shirt. Burberry Prorsum is my favourite label from Burberry – if I could only wear one label for the rest of my life I would choose Burberry Prorsum. This shirt was made in Italy, so was my other Burberry Prorsum shirt.
I cannot say I am a huge fan of cord, but micro cord in this divine camel colour really does it for me in this instance – I could not do full on normal cord; it isn’t me. I really love this shirt though it bridges the gap between smart, and casual perfectly resulting in a great smart casual shirt that can be easily dressed up, or down. I also like how it is rather fitted, and the back central pleat adds to it.
It is the little details that you really appreciate with Burberry Prorsum – I am particularly fond of how the breast pocket has ribbon trim providing a complete textural contrast, and a little luxe hint to the shirt. The buttons are a great colour too, and only add to the shirt.
Have you bought anything lately that you just love?
