Millie Mackintosh orange leather jacket: fashion crush

Last night's episode of Made in Chelsea was awkward wasn't it? I was willing Jamie to involve his right arm in the kissy clinch with Louise at the end, but it was just hanging there, like a limp branch. He needs to sort that out.

Style-wise, there was only one real highlight - the gorgeous tangerine tastic orange leather jacket Millie wore when she went to see/confront Rosie at the nail bar (what better venue for a Glamour-based cat fight?) I have deep love for my red leather jacket, but the orange is just loveliness on a whole new level.

I loved that Rosie was having her nails painted the same colour as Millie's jacket

She also wore the jacket at LOOK magazine's 5th birthday party last month.

I *think* Millie's jacket is the heavy leather biker jacket by Carven (see below for more deets) but maybe one of the similar orange leathers I've found will tickle your fancy too...

Carven @, £1,135
McQ Alexander McQueen @, £1,075
Faux leather jacket @, £39
Diesel @, £520

Just came across this blog while searching for this jacket and its great. Happy to report just seen a more affordable one in miss selfridges and I'm keen on the pink version too. I can't decide if my monthly budget should go on this or the yellow zara jacket louise wore!!

Hi, i wondered if you could possibly find out where Millie's beige fringed boots are from (on the most recent episode S3 E9) They're gorgeous but i don't know where to get them!

Hi, ooh I must have missed those. Will re-watch later today and see what I can find out. I was too busy being bedazzled by Cheska's head furniture... xx

Those fringed boots are from Zara, were in the sale but think they may all have been sold now, sorry!
