31.01.2012- Cool for Cats

One of my abiding memories of leaving school was being told by someone in my year that when I got older I'd turn into a mad cat woman. Not some cat-female hybrid in the Anne Hathaway as Catwoman sense, but a crazy old spinster who lives in a house surrounded by moggies. After six years, I stil…

30.01.2012- Monday Must-haves: Spring Brights special

It feels like I haven't put one of these posts together in a forever, but with the arrival of lots of lovely new pieces in the shops as we head towards spring, there's plenty I've been adding to my wish list over the last few weeks. Admittedly, the idea of theming this instalment of Mon…

29.01.2012- Sunday Style Spotlight #13: Peppy Miller

Whilst this Style Spotlight may seem a little unorthodox (given that it's the first post which has focused on a character from a film rather than on an actress), it seems more than fitting given that 20s inspired fashion is a standout trend for the coming season, and when considering the mass a…

26.01.2012- We'll Take Manhattan

We'll Take Manhattan, the much anticipated dramatisation of David Bailey and Jean Shrimpton's 1960s love affair airs on BBC Four tonight. Set against the backdrop of the groundbreaking Vogue shoot which the two worked together on in New York, the drama stars the gorgeous Karen Gillan as Jea…

23.01.2012- Back to the Future

One of the things which I love most about fashion is the way in which designers constantly look to the past for inspiration. This season, the styles of the 1920s are set to be brought back to roaring life following the SS12 presentations of Gucci and Ralph Lauren, which saw Deco prints, flapper dre…

22.01.2012- What I Wore Today #7

This post is a little bit sneaky as it's one I've put together in retrospect- I wore this outfit yesterday to meet a friend for lunch and some shopping, choosing something which has become something of a wardrobe essential for me since I bought it last year:

Breton Top- French Connection Jean…

21.01.2012- (Whistles) Weekend Wishes

Whistles is a brand which I've admired for a while now, and since Jane Shepherdson was appointed as CEO, their fortunes have gone from strength to strength. Whilst my budget doesn't quite stretch to being able to snap up every piece, purchasing the occasional treat from Whistles is lovely (…

20.01.2012- Hollywood comes to the V&A

2012 is shaping up to be a great year for exhibitions, particularly at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Next month sees the opening of a showcase of Cecil Beaton's portraits of Queen Elizabeth II, and in May the newly renovated fashion galleries will play host to Ballgowns: British Glamour Since…

19.01.2012- Farewell to the Fairground

Whilst I'm yet to get around to putting together a post about my top five shows from the Paris SS12 presentations (a situation which will be rectified sooner rather than later before I become well and truly 'last season'!), one of the shows which really caught my attention back in Octob…

18.01.2012- Topshop SS12

If you're not on a self-enforced January spending ban and have been having a browse around the shops over the last few weeks, then it can't have escaped your attention that, on the high street at least, spring has well and truly sprung. Whilst buying clothes for the warmer weather in Januar…

London Fashion Week AW 12/13 is now just around the corner, and in the fast-forward world of fashion that means only one thing – spring/summer has officially arrived.  So what should we be investing in for the new season? Guest blogger Jo-ann Fortune, who writes at wordsonthetopic and runs vintageb…

15.01.2012- Ted Baker SS12

On Wednesday, Sarah and I were invited along for a sneak peek of Ted Baker's SS12 collections at a very special fashion show held for 'Friends of Ted'- allowing the savvy staff who work in their stores a chance to preview what they'll be selling over the coming months (which I think…
