' More Fashion...'

Cool everyday watch

My favourite everyday timepieces are from Lars & Jennings.  A London-Stockholm company, you see its Scandi influence from the minimalist style.  I have the rose gold-plated one with a suede black strap.  Nice and oversized, it’s understated but will get noticed as it’s so lovely.  Another plus, it won’t cost you the earth either.

Perfect spring shoes

I’ve found what looks like the perfect shoes for spring or summer.  Perfect in that they cover your toes (for the days when your toes are in need of a thorough pedicure and fresh polish), won’t make your feet hot and sweaty (all them holes), are slingback (which I usually find more comfortable in general [...]

Bargain makeup

Expensive makeup can be such fun to use with its lovely packaging and they’re usually good quality to boot. Two of my favourite brands are Charlotte Tilbury and Tom Ford – very expensive but divine to use. Being a bargain-hunter at heart, however, I love it when I discover a “cheap” product which is as [...]

Bye bye, Uggs

When Ugg boots first became “big”, I first said I wouldn’t be seen dead in a pair as they looked so ugly. And then I went for a short break to NYC and experienced one of the coldest winters. I love walking around NYC and in such weather, in desperation, I saw an Ugg store [...]

For some reason, I have lost the fashion shopping bug and acquired the home decorations shopping bug (might be related to moving house!!). I have a few home furnishing tips. Best sales are high street favourite Heals, Habitat, Zara Home/ kids (particularly good for children’s duvet sets). Selfridges and Liberty often have some unique quirky [...]

Last minute further reductions are upon us. Net a porter 80% off clearance, harvey nics finishes this wkd, liberty only has a few bits (although just purchased a classic black roland mouret galaxy dress for 80%off). Matches are 50-70% off but they often do an extra 20% in due course. Far fetch has the last [...]

Coolest ankle boots

Having a bit of an obsession with Jil Sander’s buckle ankle boots.  Perfect with skinnies, fab toughener-upper with dresses and a subtle, cool eye-catcher whatever the outfit. And the block heel means comfort and a bit of oomph!  At 756 euros though – ouch…  I’m going to wait for the sales (3-4 weeks to go!) [...]

Best foundation

I’ve finally found a foundation I’m actually going to use up to the last drop… and buy again.  It’s Giorgio Armani’s Maestro Fusion Make Up.  It’s like no other foundation around – the consistency is a liquid and not a gloop and it comes in a teat pipette so you squeeze little drops of the [...]

If you haven’t already checked out & Other Stories on the high street, go take a visit. At the moment, they have some stylish Celine and Acne-inspired pieces. Price-wise, it’s in the Zara ballpark (so always a good option in between the big sales seasons) and like Cos (both Cos and & Other Stories belong [...]

Countdown to 14th November!!!  Isabel Marant has collaborated with H&M to launch a limited range, following on from the footsteps of Stella McCartney, Lanvin, Karl Lagerfeld etc. etc.  Isabel Marant – the hottest label in bohemian French chic will actually be really affordable for a while… well, items will be quite a bit pricier than [...]
