Feather Evening Jackets.

Feather Evening Jackets.

It’s funny how some outfits force their way into your wardrobe by osmosis.

I’ve had this blue feather bolero for about twelve years. I had it made for a shoot and couldn’t bare to part with it – so it came home and lived in the back of my closet.

There are not a lot of occasions in my life that call for feathers so I’ve been known to wear this around the house on weekends. And why not??

Anyway…when I put this outfit together on the weekend I realised that it was identical to the outfit that Carla Zampatti (one of my all time favourite women) wore during an interview I did with her last year.


I’d filed it away in my style memory under ‘must-wear’ and like magic twelve months later it fell out of my wardrobe and onto my body.

Carla is a big believer in the chicness of jumpsuits and usually has one or two in every collection.

She’s absolutely right (natch) because  when jumpsuits are well-tailored they work just like a blazer and pull your look together – CLICK TO BUY A CARLA ZAMAPATTI  JUMPSUIT
