The Cripple of Inishmaan

Hello Everyone!

I wrote a post a while ago about the amazing pieces in Zara and a particular fashion pursuit: the Rustic Combination Linen Coat. I said I couldn't find it anywhere, it was sold out on the website, it was nowhere to be seen in the shops, but knowing it was a fairly recent item I knew it was somewhere. Against the odds, I FOUND IT! I found my lovely coat. It took a delivery from Barcelona, but I found it and I am beyond ecstatic with it. It is just beautiful! I wore on a recent trip to London - I'm very unphotogenic, so be kind with these photos!

Coat - Zara | Top & Jeans - Topshop | Shoes - Office | Lipstick - MAC 'Morange'
It's the perfect summer coat. Fellow Englanders will know that our lovely country has a tendency to be boiling hot and sunny for about week and that's it and having a coat that is light, beautifully patterned and colourful is a great way of feeling summery even if the weather isn't up to it! I wore the coat with my lovely dark grey Super Soft Leigh jeans from Topshop which I got in the sale and were a bargain at £25 from £40 and my Blur T-shirt of their album cover 'Parklife' which I also got in the sale from Topshop for £10! Amazing, I absolutely love it!
I have also become OBSESSED with orange lately so when I saw these lovely shoes from Office on sale for £25 they were mine. And I finally got the chance to wear my orange MAC lipstick 'Morange' which is gorgeous! It's so summery and I love the fact it's got red running through to make it a dark orange it as opposed to having a light orange; I don't suit light shades very well. The coat though - isn't it incredible! And if the coat itself isn't good enough, look at the lining!! It's a work of art. This item is a little beauty - well done Zara!
I wore the coat to see 'The Cripple of Inishmaan' at the Noel Coward Theatre in London, starring Daniel Radcliffe. The show was amazing - it was really comedic, completely un-PC, moving, heartbreaking and tear-jerking. Daniel Radcliffe was brilliant, I have so much respect for him as an actor now; he was really convincing as an Irish lad and in his movements as the cripple (in this case, a sufferer of cerebal palsy) - I was completely starstruck! I am definately going to see it again and if anyone else around London is interested, the show is running until 31st August. There may be a few tickets left but it has been incredibly popular so nab the chance while you can!
What do you think of my coat and have any of you seen The Cripple of Inishmaan?
Bye bye petals, Love Alice xxx
