The Trenchcoat of Preciousness.

Posted · 19 Comments

I finally found a use for that ridiculously glamorous silk Burberry trench that I bought a couple of years ago in the States. (Coerced, I have to say, by Sam from Pixiwoo who is a terrible enabler when it comes to these things.) It was the perfect autumn outerwear for my sister-in-law’s wedding; smart and [...]

The Hush Winter Parka

Posted · 7 Comments

I like a good parka, me. Brilliant for roughing it around the countryside but equally handy for when you want something relaxed and cosy to wear over your smarter stuff. I am a particular fan of the “parka over party dress” look, as championed by Kate Moss and the other highly sociable girls of the late [...]

Buying a Winter Coat? Read this First…

Posted · 13 Comments

And here it is; the Fluffy Coat and Faux Fur lookbook. Do not buy a winter coat until you’ve seen these beauties; they’re warm, comfortable and totally on-trend (if you bother with that kind of thing!) and work equally well worn casually as they do thrown over something smart. I’ve already told you about the Unreal Fur coats (see [...]

Sturdy-meets-Sexy: LK Bennett’s Leona Boots

Posted · 8 Comments

I’ve been busy shooting fashion features and videos, so do excuse the sudden torrent of style posts! I will attempt to balance them with plenty of beauty, because I know how you get withdrawal symptoms… These boots are too good not to talk about, though, and I have an inkling that they will sell very well and [...]

Unreal Fur: This Season’s Investment Coat

Posted · 10 Comments

  There’s a huge trend for big, fluffy teddy-bear coats and faux-furs, this season. And I must say that although big, furry coats are very attention-grabbing, (something I’m usually not too comfortable with, believe it or not), there’s something almost protective in their massiveness and fluffy bulk. They make you feel strong and confident rather than [...]

Altuzarra for Target: What To Buy

Posted · 13 Comments

There I was on Net-a-Porter, minding my own business (fantasy window-shopping for outrageously expensive dresses), when a whole load of very glam-looking clothes popped up with prices that were so unusually low, I thought that there had been a mistake. Dresses for £50! You can’t buy a pair of socks on Net-a-Porter for fifty quid! It turns [...]

Perfect Little Floral Skirt

Posted · 10 Comments

Bargain little skirt to see you through the last of the summer days; it’s bold enough to hold its own against whatever you decide to wear with it, including bright orange shirts and neon-yellow vest tops. (I have tried both.) I like it because the white is still very summery, but the strong floral print [...]

Baum und Pferdgarten Summer Sale

Posted · 9 Comments

Baum und Pferdgarten. A brand that I was previously unaware of until a whole load of my friends started chirruping away about the B&P summer sale and, in particular, their gorgeous, comfortable dresses. Look at those prints! They make a casual-fitting summery piece into something rather more special; these are dresses you can simply throw on with a pair [...]
