Back To The Wild

I live by the mantra that animal print is an absolutely timeless classic. With fiery frontiers of fashion such as Blondie’s Debbie Harry and Kate Moss leading the leopard print pack over the decades, it’s no wonder that high street shops are pushing the pattern into the modern ages.   It’s safe to say that [...]

When Fashion Met Festival

This week, having returned from my second festival in as many weeks, I’ve deduced that ‘festival-girls’ fall into three distinct categories.

Work Wear Wardrobe

Work wear should be more than a simple white shirt with a striped tie, it should ooze sophistication, domination, confidence and reliability. Getting up for nine in the mornings can make anyone want to throw on just about anything and crawl into work, but your choice of outfit could reflect how other work colleagues view [...]

Clutch Bags To Enhance Your Outfit

Sometimes you just want to wear that trusty outfit.  The one that is dull in colour, won’t make you stand out but flatters your shape. You know you always look and feel good in it but it’s not quite got that wow factor that you need.  All you need are some great accessories and this [...]

Stripes: Dos and Don’ts

Blue and white, black and white or grey or white, stripes have become a staple in fashion. Inspired by sailor and French fashion from the likes of Popeye the sailor man and Jean Seberg, stripes have truly transformed style in its own right inspiring many high street fashion heavy weights such as Topshop, River Island, [...]

When Wearing a Paper Bag is a Good Thing

The last time I went jeans shopping I was informed by the assistant that I have a “hollow back”. I’m not sure if that is a medical term but I at least had a reason why every pair of trousers I buy flaps about at the back.  Belts only make the issue worse as they [...]

Hat’s Right

With the Royal Wedding behind us and the pages of our favourite magazines and newspapers dominated by images of regal headwear couture such as Tara Palmer Tomkinson’s glaringly blue Philip Treacy number, resembling what can only be described as a folded napkin in a high end restaurant, placed strategically on her forehead, and of course [...]

Bonjour Paris Fashion Week

I will be honest, for reasons involving a snowboard and a lot of gluwhein (is that how you spell it?) I may have totally missed Milan Fashion Week, so shall we simply brush over it until I am in the right frame of mind to backtrack through a billion blogs and simply move with the [...]

High Street Changing Rooms: Urban Outfitters

This green silk dress was so comfortable, albeit a little static prone.  The fact that it has a softly elasticated waist and loose fit certainly appeals, especially for Spring/Summer 2011.  It would keep you cool whilst obeying this season’s trend of mid length dresses.  I have been searching high and low for mid length dresses [...]

Velvet Luxe

The unlikely star of this winter’s show has undoubtedly got to be velvet. When it was announced to be one of the big trends for winter 2010 women across the nation screwed their faces up in distaste, and the fashion savvy were struck down with fear and despair. In a pleasant turn of events, however, [...]
