Autumn Attire

I hate the cold weather, dull, dark and dreary, it’s not something I particularly welcome. But you know what they say, every miserable grey cloud has a silver lining…. that being the excuse to buy more clothes of course! Whilst I don’t like the weather I do love the autumn/winter fashion, burgundy, deep fiery colours, [...]

Head Your Way Into Fashion

The Autumn/Winter 2012 way to make a bold statement – are you ready girls? – is to purchase a hat. It has been the job of jewellery, bright colours and footwear in the past, but now, headwear has been swiped in, to head the way in fashion through the cold months.   If you haven’t [...]

Fresher Fashion

You’re moving away from your home city and have a million and one things to worry about; making new friends, paying bills for the first time and having to navigate your way around different streets.

Lana Del Rey for H&M

As if my girl crush on Lana Del Rey could not get any bigger!

Already having her own range of [...]

Bold Prints For Summer Holidays

There is a lot of print around this season, from delicate, barely-there prints to bold in your face designs. Celebrities such as Florence Welch and Rihanna have really rocked this look recently but if it’s not your style to be quite so brash, you can infuse your outfits with as little print as you desire. [...]

Pyjama Party

For the past few weeks, I have been thoughtfully toying with the idea of buying a pair of patterned trousers. Yet every time the daring and brave idea crept into the ‘fashion’ section of my brain, an image also sprung into the part of my brain labelled ‘sensible’ (a small section I guarantee you) of [...]

Michelle Williams’ H&M Bafta Dress

Michelle Williams dazzled at last night’s Bafta’s in none other than high street favourite, H&M!   The ‘My week with Marilyn’ actor wore a gold draped organic cotton bodice gown, with trumpet skirt in satin black crepe with a flower detail at the waist.   The dress was a custom design created by the design [...]

Summery Shorts for SS12

A Show Stopper for Donatella

Versace shared a picture of their latest star yesterday, 10-year-old Kaia Gerber, offspring to superstar model, Cindy Crawford.

H&M: Real Head, Fake Body

    We all know the fashion industry has a funny way of forgetting about the real people. The real women who buy their products, have grumpy days and get a little fatter around Christmas. Well it seems H&M is no different, they have recently admitted to using digital, computer generated bodies for their products. Instead of using [...]

Future Fashionista

My usual end of season sale shopping trip was something of a revelation this year, not only because half of the high street has been in sale for an increasingly long period, but because my 5 year old daughter actually wanted to accompany me into town, seeking in particular;   “A sparkly top to match [...]
