Max Mara meets Gok Wan!

I had the perfect excuse to wear some of my Gok 4 TU at Sainsburys pieces - a trip to check out the new Max Mara range at an amazing location - the Ulster Museum. 
Wearing black to an evening event is a bit of a nightmare for the blog as it's difficult to photograph at the event, so I did some photos of the outfit earlier that day...
I wore Gok's boucle jacket and amazing black skinny jeans with my M&S shoe boots, LK Bennett clutch and a black top underneath from H&M. I was asked several times on the night where my jacket came from - everyone was impressed by the quality and the cut of it. It actually had a belt originally but I took it off for this event to keep the line cleaner. It's a jacket I'm going to wear lots and not just in the evening - it's perfect for the school run. I've said it before and I'll say again - well done Gok!
Back to the Max Mara gorgeousness - a stunning selection from Nina and the team at the Belfast store..


A gorgeous collection in a stunning location - thanks to Nina Walls and Cathy Martin for the invitation - both looking super stylish in their Max Mara outfits..
You can see more of the Max Mara collection in store on the Lisburn Road, Belfast or for a taste of what I saw, check out this video from New York Fashion Week.
I'm off to Belfast Fashion Week tomorrow (Friday) night - all was going well until I decided at 9pm tonight (Thursday) that my dress is too long. Right now I reckon the nuns missed a trick never teaching us how to take 5 inches off a cocktail dress in Home Economics…way more practical than making your own pillowcases. Wish me luck...


  1. It is a lovely jacket. Have fun at Fashion Week.

    Love the jacket and I need those shoe boots. Currently wearing a skirt that's a bit too long ( frumpy?) .perhaps we could pool our resources and find a nun somewhere.....or use wonder web!!! Have a great night....jealous!!!

    1. It is this type of interesting thing with this post of yours. I had been interested with all the topic along with the flow in the story. Keep up to date the truly amazing work.

  3. Looooove the jacket! Gorgeous. And good luck with the sewing. 6 years of Home Economics and I still can't sew in a button! Disgraceful. But my cooking skills are more than passable so I guess I can't give out about the nuns too much :)

  4. I didn't see that jacket in when I looked otherwise I would have snapped that up!! Stunning. X

  5. Oh my gosh, I LOVE that jacket you're wearing, so so cute!

  7. Good on the nuns. Ours taught me how to play the guitar, but our cooking classes were just invalid's pudding. (My mother did my sewing homework while I cooked the family dinner) You look so fabulously chic and slim in the top photo.

  8. Your outfit is the jacket:) Hope you have a great time tonight, looking forward to seeing your photos!
