Comfy Winter Style Essentials

Ladies and gents, I think it’s time to get warm… Well, as we can all tell, we are smack bang in the middle of winter. The leaves have fallen from the trees; the air is colder and the days are shorter (and snowier). And every year, as we switch into seasons, so does fashion from [...]

Parisian Style

Paris is my favourite city in the world; on offer are the finest of macaroons, pastries and wines in a setting so romantic it blows Disney movies out of the water. But other than the delectable food and pretty sights there’s one other thing I love about it- the seemingly effortless sense of style. To [...]

Ode to Primark

“Why are people queuing outside Primark?” I asked a friend during a Sunday shopping trip a few weeks ago. Is something happening? A new collection? Is the ultimate Christmas jumper being unveiled? No, they were just queuing. Tourists and locals alike. Taking pictures outside those renowned flagship doors.  The ‘bargain’ shop now internationally famous thanks [...]

Dana Lorenz Spring/Summer 2012 Jewellery Collection

Over-sized rings, magpie attracting earrings, armour-esque necklaces and tough cuffs, I own almost every piece of costume jewellery going.   This infatuation is beginning to get out of control however, and at times I do scare myself. Needless to say I have found another collection of jewellery to fall hopelessly in love with that goes [...]

Wardrobe Malfunction

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 [...]

Jewelled Clutch Bags

It is always easy making a statement in a dress for Christmas, however, this winter I also want to be remembered for my accessories, especially my little clutch bag.   Jewelled clutches are anything but subtle, they stand out, represent Hollywood glamour and catch the envy of nearly every woman. Whilst browsing online I came [...]

The closest we’ve got to bright colours this winter has been the qualirt street wrappers from the copious amounts of chocolate we scoffed over Christmas. Luckily for those of us hungry for a splash of colour, the gloomy weather is no match for Spring 2011. Yes, soon you’ll be in need of sunglasses when opening [...]
