Colour Me Cute

A 50’s inspired fashion phenomenon is currently jiving its way back down our high streets.   That’s right ladies, one of fashion’s most fun and flirty eras is making its presence felt in a modern world with an insatiable appetite for vintage clothing and revisiting earlier styles.   That means that to stay ahead of [...]

Pretty Pastel Pumps

Ballerina pumps are incredibly comfortable for the most part.  Whilst some of the prettiest ones can be so inviting you do need to watch where you step lest you pierce the pump’s sole on a piece of broken glass.  That piece of depressing news aside, pumps come in a vast array of colours and styles [...]

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, [...]

Kate Moss for Mango

Kate Moss is back with a new spring/summer collection for Barcelona retailer Mango. Previous celebrity collaborations with the brand include Penelope Cruz, Olivia Palermo and more recently, Scarlett Johansson.   Despite modelling for the crème de la crème of designer heavyweights and haute couture the newly married model has never snubbed high street labels.   [...]

Pastels for Spring/Summer 2012

The new year begins, the sun sets a little later each day, and thoughts of excitement creep in.  You know that summer’s not far away with its long days, laughter and increased social activities.   There is nothing prettier, in the most feminine sense of the word, than pastel colours splashed against the lighter shades of neutral.

Don’t Blend In this Winter

Living in England we rarely experience any summer. This year was no different, we only got a handful of actual sunny days. Personally I don’t think one or two days of sunshine are enough to pull out every one of my bright coloured clothes that I had stacked up from the previous year’s summer sales. [...]

Accessories can be all you need to add some wow factor to your outfit.  Particularly if you hate everything in your wardrobe and decide to find solace in your trusty LBD for that night out.   Clutch bags are elegant and ladylike.  They can transform your outfit from nice to fabulous and the right clutch [...]

Clash Your Heart Out

This is a season for the bold, the brave and the somewhat mentally unstable.  Clashing of prints, fabrics and colours are all huge during Autumn/Winter 2011-12 which means you can have a whole lot of fun throwing fashions together which previously would have been considered mismatched.   Lace with cord, star prints with jewel embellishments, [...]

Autumn/Winter 2011-12 Goes Sixties

Autumn/Winter 2011-12 moves the focus back a decade from summer’s 70′s nod to the 60′s mod.  Yes, it’s all about textured materials, shift dresses, full skirts, sloping shoulder jackets, plastics, felts, and warm autumn colours that are very much the 60′s colour palette.   To give you a taste of some great 60′s style fashion [...]

Celebrities Do Demure

When a celebrity pulls off looking classy it says so much more than simply using sex to sell.  After all, you’ve got to have some natural wow factor to still grab headlines when you’re not simply baring all in the spotlight… or shall we say, doing a Rhianna or Gaga.   Eva Mendes has certainly [...]

Prime Minister’s Wife’s Been Taking Notes

  We think the Prime Minister’s wife, Samantha Cameron, may have been reading LoveScene Magazine!   At the weekend we caught her in the papers wearing the same green silk dress that we had featured in one of our “High Street Changing Rooms” articles:  How lovely of her to visit!    Once our feet [...]
