Millie Mackintosh black lace shirt and faux fur gilet on made in Chelsea
As promised last week, when I spilled the beans on Millie Mackintosh’s Hervé Léger bandage dress, here’s a low down on two more of Made in Chelsea star Millie’s signature pieces, as requested by my brill skillz readers…
When Millie broke up with Hugo on the banks of the Thames in the second episode of season two (next time I have to have a difficult conversation I am so arranging to meet in that spot – full camera crew optional) she was wearing a plunging black lace blouse that got y’all pretty excited.
|Someone’s gonna get dumped…|
It’s a bit low-cut for my liking, but then I don’t have enough of a cleavage to want to go around showing it off. If my bosoms were slightly more boobalicious, I’m sure I would.
But I digress. The blouse in question is from uber-hip brand The Kooples. I’m absolutely intruigued by The Kooples – like, are those couples real?? Surely no one is that cool. And all the boys have the most incredible beards… You know how I feel about beards – and if you don’t, be assured that I like them. Longtime.
Millie’s blouse is no longer on the website, but I prefer this equally delish black lace top from The Kooples which is perfect for winter 2011 and a bit less knocker-tastic.
|The Kooples, £130|
The other Millie item I’ve been asked about is a real wardrobe staple for her – the faux fur gilet she has worn in several episodes.
|Hugo was bad….was I badder?|
If you’re a fashion follower, you’ve probably already invested in your (faux) fur for the chilly months, but if you can’t get enough of it (I’m on four fake fur jackets and counting) a gilet does add a bit of Chelsea-esque glam, particularly to jeans and jersey tops – or to vintage/vintage-inspired printed dresses (as per my little eBay look).
Millie’s gilet is from Zara – again, past season I suspect. Right now you can purchase an awesome sauce sheepskin gilet from Zara for a v reasonable £119 or take your pick from these similar styles…
