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 [...]

How to be a Savvy Sale Shopper…

The sale season is well and truly here. It’s what we have been waiting for all year round. This is where we can get that gorgeous Zara coat; we’ve had our eye on for the past few months and for a fraction of the price. More importantly, since January is all about new starts, now [...]

Party Dresses for Your Shape

In what seems to be the busiest week of the year, picking your party dress can become a stressful experience. And with all the peplum frills, lace and bodycon, choosing the right dress without getting distracted by trends can be daunting. And seeing as an increasing amount of us are cutting the crowds and the [...]

Loud Statement Rings

When it comes to jewellery I am anything but subtle, in this case, less is not always more. I love wearing chunky chains, having rings adorn my fingers and wearing earrings that are big enough to rival the great Pat Butcher.   One of the looks for this year is again going to be tribal, [...]

Let’s Talk Aztec!

My favourite trend of the season (in fact the whole year!) is by far Aztec.   The print and style originating from Mexico has inspired designers and collections all over the world this summer and the trend hasn’t stopped there, it’s continued on to be a very important and popular trend of autumn/winter 2011 and [...]

High Street Crisis

The British high street is in ‘crisis’ and is close to ‘extinction’ according to a report compiled by retail guru Mary Portas.   Prime Minister David Cameron commissioned the report back in May after an increasing number of shops were forced to close their doors following a downturn in trade. According to figures from the [...]

Fashion Thrifty

Now don’t get me wrong, I love the high street as much as the next girl and there is so much out there – but I’m no stranger to a charity shop or two.   The term ‘second-hand’ may strike horror in some people, wearing people’s castaways… But believe me, the clothes you can come [...]

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 [...]

Get Ahead, Get A Hat!

Flicking through magazines lately, it seems every young trendy celeb is rocking a hat. Trilbies, berets, bowlers and floppy fedoras – there are several charming styles knocking around at the moment.   From Jameela Jamil to Posh, the catwalk to the high street – hats are truly in for the autumn/winter season and beyond… and [...]

Wardrobe Must Have: The Blazer

If there’s one thing every girl should have at least one of in their wardrobe, then it’s the blazer. If you don’t have one, well, you simply don’t know what your missing!  The blazer is an absolute wardrobe must have for any fashionista or style addict.   The best thing about blazers is that they [...]

The Right Baggage

As we look to a new season of style, it’s important to remember that the men in your life and your winter wardrobe should always have one thing in common: the right baggage.   That’s right ladies; don’t be weighed down in the style stakes and instead take to the pavement and view the very [...]

Wonderful Wellies

Wellies are no longer being kept to muddy farms or for gardening, they will be seen on the high street, already they have been spotted at festivals!  They will come in their dozens! Bright neon colours, glow in the dark, your classic green, patterned and even polka dots!   It will make rainy days more [...]

The Investment Piece

Investment pieces, clothing staples, capsule wardrobes. We have all heard these terms banded about. So what are these “timeless essentials” and are they really worth saving for? A wardrobe essential, in essence, is an item of clothing that is purposely bought with the intention of wearing and re-wearing for the foreseeable future. Its intent is [...]

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 [...]

Taking Your Wardrobe Into The Next Season…

So the calendar may claim it’s August, but the view outside our windows doesn’t appear to agree. It may seem a little premature to start seriously thinking about your A/W wardrobe – but due to good old Blighty’s varied summer, clothes that can be worn now and also throughout the next season are what everyone’s [...]

Dressing on a Budget

When it comes to dressing with an edge we all want to be on the pulse of fashion, but sometimes those designer clothes that we see advertised on the catwalks and in the magazines can seem simply beyond our means. The good news is that you don’t have to break the bank balance when it [...]

To Try Or Not To Try? Try!

Looking through what are deemed to be the upcoming autumn/winter 11 trends in a magazine with my mates we stopped on a certain page and went quiet. We broke the silence with, “You know what, I quite like them,” “Yeah they’re alright really,” “I was looking at them a while ago but I just wasn’t [...]

Winter Coats 2011

Long gone are the days where I was dressed in bright fuchsia, purple and yellow patchwork coats! Instead I now look forward to shopping for new coats that will actually flatter me, rather than making me appear like the abominable snowman on acid!   This winter coats will come in their thousands! They will range [...]

The Purchases That Time (and I) Forgot…

I’ll admit it – I’m a clothes addict. And I’m aware that I’m not the slightest bit alone in this addiction. Trips to the High Street inevitably result in that dress, pair of heels (whatever it might be this time) screaming my name…I went through a phase when I was younger of applying the term [...]
