The Jazz Age circa 2012

I’m a hat-happy kind of a girl. With the first hint of a chill, I’m digging out my cosiest, warmest beanies and fedoras. I don’t believe you have to be a “hat person” to partake either. Discovering that first perfect style that frames the face beautifully and adds a subtle elusiveness is the secret weapon [...]

There is a lot of print around this season, from delicate, barely-there prints to bold in your face designs.

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 [...]
