September. The long, hot days of summer will soon be a thing of the past. Once more, the leaves will change their colour, before falling to the ground – silently embracing their fate – leaving behind naked branches that were once covered in vivid green.
Not long ago I mentally started planning my autumn/winter wardrobe. It’s soon time for knitted hats, chunky scarfs and anything else that can keep me warm on the cold evenings. And if looking at Dolce & Gabbana, Nordic patters are very much in vogue this winter.
Usually, I will update my winter wardrobe by placing an order with Mamma Nordica, using her excellent knitting talent to the fullest, which has provided me with many quality, home-made Nordic garments over the years.
However, this season, as it’s already September, and my dear Mamma only has two hands (not to mention a job and a life), I thought I’d look elsewhere as well in order to satisfy my Nordic knitwear craving. And as much as I want to, my financial situation unfortunately doesn’t allow me to go to my friends Domenico and Stefano for a fashion fix. But then I was introduced to George.
Last week, whilst out for lunch, Little M, his mami and I stopped by The Hospital Club as the lovely ladies from George at ASDA had invited us to have a sneak-peek at what’s in store (and online!) in a couple of months. Knowing very little about George, not living near an ASDA myself (or having bought any items of clothing at a supermarket before) and having been told that the American George is considered pretty “dowdy”, I was a bit uncertain of what to expect from English George.
However, I was pleasantly surprised by what English George had to offer: on trend Nordic patterns, lace and faux fur jackets of good quality and at reasonable prices!
So whilst Little M was busy checking out the kiddie section and “sampling” the decor, his mami and I got out our Blackberry and iPhone respectively to schedule in a shopping trip.
