I'm soooooo in love with this coat from Topshop and I've been eyeing it up for weeks and weeks until I finally caved and bought it at the weekend. I love the slouchy bomber style shape but then the print makes it something else. While I do think its ridiculously expensive at a not so cool £85 there is no denying how beautiful it is. I was really drawn to this Jumper from Monki as well. I love the unique basket weaved texture on the front as it adds a bit extra to a basic black jumper. I actually bought a dress version of this top as I liked it so much. I'm very much into texture in clothing at the moment! I paired with my Joni Jeans which I've finally come to the conclusion I don't recommend getting. They aren't very good quality and mine are already falling apart at the seams and I've worn them probably less than 5 or 6 times. The fit is absolutely amazing but they just feel like they are going to split! I think Im going to buy the American Apparel Easy Jeans instead!

  7. The jacket is absolutely beaut, bit on the expensive side though. Such a shame about your Joni jeans I've heard that they fall apart quite a lot but mine are staying strong and I've worn them tonnes over the past month or so xx

  32. You look lovely, you're so good at monochrome dressing! I have heard mixed reviews on the Joni jeans, lots of complaints about the white stitching on the black jeans. I would recommend the Jamie jeans, they're not as high waisted, but so far mine have proven to be really good quality :)

  57. I've heard so many conflicting reviews on the Joni jeans! Some say they're the most perfect jeans ever and a lot better value for money than the Easy Jean. So confused! Lily, have you seen The Persian Babe's youtube review on both jeans?

  58. Thank goodness I read this after deciding not to get the Joni Jeans. Would have been super disappointed to get them and then read this post. Thanks for the warning! :)
