Ted Baker at Van Mildert

Can I let you into a little secret? I love Ted Baker. Seriously. I have two Ted Baker purses, a Ted Baker bag, I love Ted Baker shirts on my husband, I love their fit and flare dresses - I just love the brand.

So I have a feast for your eyes today. In fact it's a Ted Baker Fest! Recently I was asked to write an article about Van Mildert, and when I realised they stocked Ted Baker I couldn't wait to get started.

Van Mildert is an award-winning premium fashion retailer stocking designer clothes and accessories. With brands like Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith, Barbour and Ted Baker you know this designer women and menswear retailer just offers the best in luxury fashion. Established in 1996 in Durham, it has become a Mecca for all the fashionistas in the area, and they now have 7 stores in the north of England. All stores offer a wide variety of collections and are spilt across sections catering for young fashion, branded fashion, concept design, and premium sportswear. If you don't live nearby they also have a cool website, which is easy to order from too.

So onto Ted Baker. Did you know Ted Baker launched in Glasgow. From humble beginnings they have grown to ‘No Ordinary Designer Label’. with a focus on quality, attention to detail and with a quirky sense of humour. That shop in Glasgow offered a laundry service to make it stand out from the rest and so Ted Baker was born.

Ted Baker always thinks out of the box and so their approach to marketing has never been conventional. What other brand would give away a packet of Paxo stuffing at Christmas....?

But I digress, I'm getting lost in the brand - for me the clothes, the bags and the purses are king.

It's all in the detail - shirts with different linings, cuffs with floral details, purses made in patent leather with the signature floral lining, the bow and bobble clasps, the butterfly prints. Beautifully made clothes and accessories with stunning design features that make loyal Ted Baker fans come back for more, time and time again, that and the emphasis on Britishness.

So what pieces do I adore from the Autumn/Winter collection?

Ted Baker Madigan coat £299

This stunning vibrant colour and soft classical design drew me to this coat, and it has contrasted printed lining.

Ted Baker Bakula Jumper £139

I am also loving this women's Bakula jumper. The chiffon sleeves and embellished detail make it perfect for Christmas drinks with friends.

Oil Painting Matinee Purse £99

How about this chic floral matinee purse to add a splash of colour to your handbag. The iconic crystal bow clasp is so pretty. Perfect for girlie girls.

So what do you think of my fashion choices? Do you like vivid colours in the Winter or are you a pastel girl? Do you have any Ted Baker items? Let me into your wardrobe secrets!

  1. That coat! Oh my word, heavenly. I love the colour! Perfect for a statement!! I would love to have that exact coat for winter, or a red one.
    The bag is gorgeous also!

    1. I know I adore it, it's the colour I think and the flattering design

    2. I always go for a fit and flare, I have a lovely mac of similar design from M&S, but it is boring black, nothing like this fabulous blue!

  2. Gosh that purse is gorgeous!! I wish I had loads of money to spend haha.
