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, [...]

Everyone Needs A Muse

I have a shameful secret…until recently I didn’t like fashion. Well, perhaps not as strong as didn’t ‘like’ but certainly didn’t ‘get’. I was the girl who would feign family duties, lack of cash or even a smear test to get out of a shopping trip with friends. I didn’t understand why girls – in [...]

NAIL ART: Are we done yet?

The fingernail is having a Mariah Carey diva moment. From velvet tips to chalkboard doodles, beauty bloggers worldwide must surely wince with each new “it” effect that they are obliged to review.

Blazer Glory

Time to introduce my latest style obsession: the blazer. This iconic and timeless piece is one that has recently become as essential to me as GHD’s and denim.   For a long time I eschewed this design trend as unappealing and unflattering; no doubt in part to memories of a bottle green school uniform with [...]

Stars and Stripes

Scrambling frantically at my keyboard in a desperate bid to win a pair of stars and stripes shorts (which is something I’ve been trying to get my hands on for weeks now by the way) I realised one thing, well two things actually…   The first being the realization that I was never going to [...]

The Ultimate Faux Pas

Much like a bad dream, this next trend just keeps on recurring. Once a style penned by dancing dads, or those cool enough to be deemed alternative, paired with Doc Martens or, as you may more commonly recognise them; afoot a tourist. Yes, those encumbering Big Ben glarer’s with their 800mm camera lens and the [...]

The pesky ‘style rut’. Now, in all honesty, when I think of Miss Jamil – funky strapless dresses, long dark [...]

Pavement Power?

Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”   The statement suggests that fashion is not purely about clothes. It’s about our lifestyles; events that [...]
