What To Wear: Audi International Polo

Posted · 15 Comments

I have attended the Audi Polo Challenge for the past three years now; it’s a very smart invitation-only affair with cocktails and champagne and, of course, the high-octane, thundering-hooved spectacle that is a polo match. But this year there’s also the Audi International, an equally smart affair that’s taking place at Guards Polo Club near Windsor. It’s [...]

This Summer’s Hand Adornments.

Posted · 15 Comments

I’ve found my perfect hand accessories for this summer; Chanel’s nail colour in “Holiday”, a fiery orange-red, and this brilliant Aldo bracelet that I bought on ASOS last week.

Get It Before It Goes: DVF Silk-Jersey Dress

Posted · 12 Comments

Get it while you can! I bought this Diane Von Furstenberg dress ages ago from The Outnet (here) and have only just had a suitable occasion to wear it to. It’s a brilliant dress – drapey and quite low at the front, but doesn’t show any bra; short and leggy, but not so short that you worry [...]
