Mid-season sales just don’t cut it.  Get your sales fix from outnet.com (new just in supplies 930 am mon, tue, thus) or venture to Bicester village for early xmas buys (for yourself!!).

Covet Carven

Carven is a French label that has had a rebirth over the last few years thanks to a new designer.  This label is for the woman who likes classics but with a twist e.g the prefect black dress with immaculate tailoring and a little bit of frou-frou, tailored jackets with peter pan collars, crisp prim [...]

Wedge trainers cont’d

OK, I have an ongoing obsession with wedge trainers… First there were the oh-so-gorgeous and yet oh-can-I-justify-spending-so-much-on-what-are-trainers-afterall Isabel Marant trainers.  Resisted them to then fall for the Ash versions (somewhat cheaper)… Then got a pair or cheapo Asos ones as well (trainer-love there too) and now… Nike (Nike!) have come out with their take on [...]

Trainers with heels 2

In February, I posted about Isabel Marant‘s wedge trainers. Well, almost 500 euros for a pair of… trainers is perhaps a little over-the-top… Lucky for me, there are much, much cheaper takes on these – Topshop had a great pair but unfortunately sold out but look around and you’ll see lots of high street versions. [...]

Web- So, if you failed to acquire anything from the Hennes/ Marni collaberation, fear not. Plan B, wait for them to go on ebay (which they will). Plan C, buy something from Marni from outnet.com (upto 75% off), making Marni just about affordable.

Best tweezers ever

Eyebrows frame your face and Rubis tweezers are the Ferrari of tweezers. So sharp, they can pull out the flimsiest and shortest of unwanted eyebrow hair and they just don’t seem to go blunt so you don’t need to sharpen them like other tweezers. Eyebrow-plucking was never so satisfying before I discovered the Rubis…
