Brunch Club

Long weekends: a leisurely brunch with my love, mooching around the shops, and cuddling small dogs. What more do you need in life?

With an extra couple of days off after the weekend, we decided to take a drive over to check out the new Rushden Lakes shopping centre and grab something to eat at the Eden champagne bar and restaurant in House of Fraser - thanks for the recommendation, Amber! We tried a few of the tapas sharing plates (halloumi, tomato & red pepper skewers, paprika hummus and chili & almond tender-stem broccoli) and washed down with a fire-in-the-belly virgin bloody mary and mint tea. I’d really recommend going if you happen to be in the area, both the food and the service were superb, as was the floor to ceiling plant-wall and the collection of Autumn-Winter Biba that graced the rails. Oh, baby...

Whilst back in Northamptonshire, we swung by the Dr Martens factory shop and somehow managed to avoid coming out with three bulging bags like last time, despite the fact that I was fawning over a pair of red love-heart boots and a made in UK red tartan scarf that was only a god-damn fiver!!

My momentary lack-of-red-boot frustration was immediately subdued by the fact that it was cold enough to prance around and feel fancy in my new winter coat. After a couple of years of sticking with fairly sensible navy wool coats, I could not resist this super dreamy sage faux-fur number from Topshop. I mean, just look at the collar!! I paired it with the appropriate Margot Brunch club tee and my standard Margot Tenenbaum-esque sulky expression (an all-season thang). 

"Richie: You dropped some cigarettes. 
Margot: Those aren't mine. 
Richie: They just fell out of your pocket."

Much love,
