Net-a-porter’s wares might be out of reach for most of us, but that’s what sale season is for, right?

We all have a friend or family member who responds to a request for their Christmas wish list with a “But, I already have everything I could ever possibly want”. Pretty unhelpful, right?

I am incredibly fortunate, but I’ve got to admit that despite this, I still spy things I wish were mine on a regular basis. What woman doesn’t?

I’m not going to pretend I understand the intricacies of fashion week or that I can accurately name who heads up which fashion house, but I do like to pour (correction, drool) over the online slideshows the likes of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar publish after the lights have dimmed on the runway. They make for the perfect 10 minutes of escapism when you find your mind beginning it’s mid-afternoon workday walkabout, don’t you agree?
Anyway, a show-stopping accessory in the Saint Laurent S/S 2013 show caught my eye last month – a range of felt wide-brimmed fedoras. Covet!
