How To Wear: The Midi Dress

Ah the midi dress, a growing favourite amongst high street stores and all of you fashionistas alike, and definitely a new favourite in my own wardrobe. Yet with its awkward length, especially for 5ft 1’ females like myself and with the days becoming colder you may be wondering just how do I wear my oh [...]

Many Shades of Purple

If there is one colour you want to be seen wearing this season, it’s definitely the many shades of purple. Berry, Burgundy, Claret, Grape, Lavender, Lilac, Maroon, Plum, Oxblood, Violet, take your pick as they are all a big hit for Autumn/Winter and I for one have gone berry crazy!   Whether you want to [...]
