It's all about the jacket...

When I went into the MAX & Co store in Mirdif City Centre, this jacket was the "thing" that I gravitated towards. I loved the colour palette and the embellished collar. It's one of those items that looks super expensive but turns out to be just about affordable.

MAX & Co is what I would call a "bridge brand". It's not high end expensive but it's not dirt cheap high street either. Think Reiss, and then deduct about £50 from the price tag.

It's been around for a while - it's MaxMara's baby sister - and I remember seeing the stock in Fenwicks Bond Street (which I think is their only UK location) and when I was bunking off Italian lessons during a stint in Rome.

It's all pretty dresses, great prints and the type of brand that comes into it's own for Spring/Summer. There's a good mix of basics and more "special" pieces.

I got store credit from the brand and I think the idea was to buy an entire head-to-toe outfit. Instead I recklessly blew it on the jacket and the blouse. *oops* :)  Still, no regrets!
