 Eribe arrived in a warm blur of sky blue, coral pink misty grey. Waffle mittens, 1940`s style hand knitted finger less gloves and the dreamiest beret in the lightest pastel shades.

Miss Pom Pom

Hot on the heels of the last post Miss pom Pom arrived..and sold out in about two days..but it came back and remains in store. I have a feeling that just like Quinton and Chadwick it will remain an AW fixture in Starburst. Prices from £15.00 for a hairband

Quinton & Chadwick AW16

I have said this many times before but it really wouldn't be winter in Starburst if we didn't have a small burst of Quinton and Chadwick in store. Sadly its taken me until now to mention the new delivery and this year it has flown out despite the relatively warm Devon Autumn. However here is a look back...and few key styles are still here for the Christmas run up.

Cast Made

A new addition this autumn to Starburst is the new bag collection from local designer Cast Made. Sleek, simple, and elegant each bag is handmade in Totnes, Devon and uses vegetable tanned leather (using natural plant extracts.) The leather is designed to age beautifully over time and feels super soft which I think is an essential element in any leather bag..

Lucie the founder of Cast made at the local tannery. This is one of the last oak tannaries in the world
Lucie uses sleek looking brass buttons to fasten each bag. Each button which is formed from her own thumb print is handmade in a foundry in North Devon. Available in two styles either across body or oversize clutch the bags work for day or night.

A collection of the Brass Buttons

My absolute favorite has to be the buttery soft olive green clutch. I love olive green and just wish that more designers used it in there AW collections. I am still dreaming of an olive green wool pleated skirt from Prada which came out a few seasons back...but no one copied.  Paired with bright mustard yellow and turquoise it was perfection. 

And if theses pictures didn't have you leaping for your credit card then inspiration can always be found out there in blogger land. Habitually chic never fails to disappoint.
