Driving Miss Mulligan

Romance is in the air with the arrival of the most awaited film of the coming year, The Great Gatsby, and along with the roaring Twenties of course comes glitz and glamour. It’s the book that inspired Kate Moss’s ethereal wedding day, and countless more. F.Scott Fitzgerald’s celebrated novel set in the heart of the Twenties, a time beguiled [...]

Value for Versace

Last night saw Versace’s eagerly awaited collection for H&M launch in New York, with fashion royalty Helena Christensen and Uma Therman to name but a few celebrating the designer’s first high street collaboration.   These are not clothes for the minimalists among us. Those who favour pastel colours and nude accessories may wish to steer clear, but if one thing’s [...]

Kopycat Kim

Pale and Interesting

Images of Kirsten Dunst last week weren’t amass with comments on her enviable figure or her teeny tiny black bikini, rather, the Marie Antoinette star’s ivory complexion – probably the only recent indication of exactly how obsessed we are with bronzed skin, that such a natural pallor should cause surprise.   Let’s face it, maple [...]

Winter Wonders

Tones of camel, cognacs and chunky knits, cashmere lined leather gloves with heavy, cosy coats against autumnal checked scarves and knitted turbans warming frosty lobes.   As much as the delayed week of summer was warmly welcomed, the surge of brisk wind and chilly temperatures seem set to keep our sandals firmly in hibernation for [...]

Debate: Palazzo Pants

FOR Initially made popular by Katharine Hepburn in 1930s Hollywood, the bold palazzo pant (originally made as comfortable dress wear) has made a confident revival this season. The 70s post hippies all connected with the fierce yet elegant charm of the palazzo pant as the unofficial uniform of choice. The palazzo pant, to me, says, [...]

Pretty Woman

Last week I had what I can only sarcastically describe as the best shopping experience I have ever had. This particular incident occurred in a well known department store, one of which will remain nameless but will quite possibly be easily guessed. Having browsed for quite a considerable amount of time, I found myself, naturally, [...]

The Investment Piece

Choker Convert

Continually the fashion world showers us with a contrasting range of trends each season. Together they often compliment and praise one another as if they were always meant to be. Like tulle and lace or cable knit and cashmere. Other times, the styles seem less likely to unite and contrast not in that seemingly effortless [...]

Size Satisfaction

Every girl hopes to feel happy with her body, but when clothing sizes differ so drastically, those expectations are more often than not, shattered.  We have all been there, tried on a microscopic size eight in one shop and barely gotten a leg into a 12 at another. It’s when these contradictory sizes begin to [...]
