1920s Fancy Dress

December 31, 2012

My sister loves the 1920s era and held her 29th birthday pre drinks at Evans & Peel Detective Agency, the very cool speakeasy in Earls Court. Later she and her friends went on to the Candlelight Club, a clandestine cocktail bar in a secret location in London with a 1920s theme, to dance the night […]

Muse of the Moment – Lady Mary Charteris

December 4, 2012

Yes, I’m slow off the mark, given her famous wedding dress was revealed some months ago, but I am currently obsessed with Lady Mary Charteris. The aristocracy has long been synonymous with fashion and I have a long standing admiration/idolisation of her aunt Daphne Guinness. Lady Mary is a bright young thing, model and DJ […]

December 1, 2012

I have always loved the “boyfriend” look. Basically a loose fitting pair of jeans that creates the illusion you have just thrown on a pair of your boyfriend’s jeans whilst leaving the house. A look that feels as casual and comfortable as it appears. My love affair with boyfriend jeans is age old and was […]

3.1 Phillip Lim at NYFW

September 28, 2012

For me, the highlight of New York Fashion Week was the Phillip Lim show. I have always been a huge fan of his line. The slouchy, chic separates he pioneered have revolutionised the entire fashion industry and have heavily influenced my wardrobe. This Autumn/Winter however, he has surpassed himself. As usual the entire collection is […]

What to Wear to a Wedding (When You’ve Just had a Baby)

August 17, 2012

It’s tricky knowing what to wear when you’ve just had a baby. I’m certainly not enjoying being larger than life and am stubbornly refusing to buy clothes in a size 12-14. It’s not that I dislike my body at the moment, Marilyn Monroe was a fruity size 16 after all. It’s just that I have […]

Gold Medal for Style

August 11, 2012

How cool are team GB? They rock and so do their kits. With sportswear designed by Stella McCartney they couldn’t fail to look chic and professional. The Russian team however, seem to have gone back to the 80’s with their red and white track suits but there’s something quite endearing, in an almost Alexander Wang […]
