Who knew shoulders could be so sexy?

We’re used to seeing legs and cleavage.  With the creation of wow bras, maximisation bras and the make- your- breasts-  look-two- sizes- bigger bras, it isn’t a surprise that the assets women show in order to impress are those we probably shouldn’t be showing. But things are soon changing. Off the shoulder styles have made [...]

The standard trench is not so standard anymore…

If you haven’t seen it, you should immediately Google it. And no, I’m not talking about Beyonce’s Superbowl performance again (oh-em-gee how good was it?) This time, I’m talking about trench coats, and lots of them. Yes I know, someone says trench coat and you immediately want to shout, ‘Sherlock!’ Or ‘Romeo Beckham!’ In my [...]

I must not belong in Venus…

Ok, so I am a little out of my depth here… Well, a lot out of depth. I do not usually do this. I am usually a-writing-about-fashion-kind-o’-girl.

Trunks GB

It appears that although the closing ceremony for the Olympics certified that London 2012 is nearly over, there is still a hype surrounding the legendary sporting event, and this has nothing to do with the Paralympics beginning next week.   Team GB gear has taken the sports fanatic world by storm with merchandise being sold [...]

It’s Not Vintage, It’s Second Hand

Usually when we come across something previously worn by another being, we, well I, and most of my friends, state it as ‘vintage.’ The use of the word has become a noun;  a category of clothing, furniture, paraphernalia. It is no longer a term used to describe things, but a word categorically known for all [...]

Union Jacked

So apparently, this year, it’s all about being British. And it’s not just the retired royal-lovers and school children who were celebrating the Queen’s diamond reign last weekend, but also fashion!   Yes, bye-bye decade-themed trends, bye-bye denim, bye-bye florals, this spring/summer, there is something a lot closer to home… get it?   Okay, so [...]
