30.03.2012- What I Wore Today #16

With the gorgeous sunshine that's been about this week, I've found myself increasingly drawn to some very spring-like floral prints. Earlier in the week I picked up some very brightly coloured printed trousers in the River Island sale (but whether they'll be worn anywhere other than on …

29.03.2012- Designed by Miss Selfridge: Take Two

One of my favourite high street pieces from last year was a gorgeous maxi dress from the first Miss Selfridge 'Designed By' collection, as seen in this post. Unfortunately, I never got around to snapping it up, so it shall remain forever one of the ones that got away! Luckily for me, howeve…

28.03.2012- Westfield- The Future of Fashion

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be invited along to the official launch of Westfield's Future Fashion exhibition, which has this week taken over The Atrium of the Shepherd's Bush centre before transforming the Stratford City space from April 4th-9th. Engineered as a celebration of all digit…

27.03.2012- In good Company

As a rule, there are no magazines which I pick up religiously. Correction- there were no magazines which I picked up religiously until the revamp of Company magazine three months ago. Whereas I can take or leave Elle depending on who the cover star is each month, and object to shelling out over £4…

23.03.2012- What I Wore Today #15

Two outfit posts in a row! It's so lovely that there's plenty of light at the moment, and with the clocks going forward on Sunday, the evenings will be brighter too. Hooray! Yesterday I took my mum along to afternoon tea at Claridge's as a belated Mother's Day treat. I'm in the …

22.03.2012- What I Wore Today #14

Another cheeky retrospective outfit of the day for you! I wore this yesterday evening to Collection's 25th birthday celebrations, which took place just off Carnaby Street. Whilst the weather was warm, there was still a bit of a nip in the air, so I opted for this cosy combination:

Jumper- Zara Je…

21.03.2012- Spring in the new

What a beautiful day! Whilst it seems typically British to talk about the weather, it's lovely to see the sunshine again after such a gloomy winter. Lighter mornings, longer evenings and the balmier weather all point to the arrival of spring, and I for one couldn't be happier. I've also…

19.03.2012- Monday Must-haves: Urban Outfitters' Boutique Beauties

Towards the end of last year, I was invited along to the Urban Outfitters SS12 press day in London, where I saw (and needless to say fell in love with!) a whole host of pieces from their new season ranges. Over the last few weeks, a lot of my favourites from the day have made their way onto the Urb…

17.03.2012- What I Wore Today #13

Today I spent a lovely day wandering around London with my mum (a pre-Mother's Day Mother's Day I suppose you could call it!) We experienced sensory overload as we wandered around a bustling Borough Market, before following the river over to St. Paul's, Carnaby Street and Covent Garden.…

15.03.2012- The Olsens do Elle

As if any further proof were needed of their style icon status, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's sartorial star has been further cemented by Elle UK, who this month feature the twins as their cover stars. Each has their own edition of the magazine, so it's a real test of loyalties as to which o…

13.03.2012- Red Sole Retrospective

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a woman in possession of any small fortune will wholeheartedly devote herself to shoe shopping (to badly paraphrase Jane Austen!) Seriously though, we all know that shopping for a new pair of shoes is one of the most addictive spending pursuits out there,…

12.03.2012- Orla Kiely for Uniqlo

Last week, I posted Orla Kiely's SS12 campaign film and have since been visiting their online store on an almost daily basis, whilst lamenting the fact that my pennies don't quite stretch far enough to invest in some of their beautiful new season pieces. Luckily for my bank balance, next we…

11.03.2012- The spring/summer trouser trend

When checking off your spring/summer must-haves, don’t forget to add statement trousers to the list this season, writes guest blogger Jo-ann Fortune.   
The introduction of jumpsuits and wide-leg palazzo pants to high street fashion collections over the past few years has opened up a new trend-led…

10.03.2012- Weekend Wishes

My wish for this weekend is a relatively simple one, but one which I'm sure you'll empathise with (in fact, most of you are probably wishing for the same thing!) All I would love this weekend is the chance to be able to do this:

Sometimes it seems that there really aren't enough hours in…

08.03.2012- The Retrosphere

I love going shopping for vintage pieces, but it can often be really tricky to find the retro diamonds in the rough when you're confronted with a mountain of clothes to sift through. Whilst rummaging through rail after rail is part of the charm of the vintage shopping experience, it can be real…

07.03.2012-What I Wore Today #12

Do you ever wake up in the morning determined to wear something you've planned in advance only to have your idea for the perfect outfit ruined by the weather? Well, that very thing happened to me this morning- I had a spring-inspired (or sprin-spired, if you will!) outfit ready and raring to, b…

06.03.2012- Orla Kiely SS12: Poetry in Motion

I've loved Orla Kiely for ages, and am always eager to see what they have up their ultra-stylish sleeves from season to season. For each new collection they produce, they release an accompanying film, which captures the essence of the designs and showcases the pieces in full technicolour motion…

05.03.2012- Monday Must-haves: Whistles Special

Over the last few months or so, Whistles has rapidly become one of my favourite shops. When I saw their SS12 lookbook at the start of the year, I resolved to start saving my pennies so I could snap up some of my favourite pieces, deciding to make the odd investment purchase here and there rather th…

04.03.2012- Sunday Style Spotlight #15: Lily Collins

There's nothing like an Oscars red carpet appearance to boost your style profile, and in the midst of the awards mania which unfolded last Sunday, Lily Collins came up trumps. Although absent from the ceremony itself, she made a standout entrance at Vanity Fair's post awards party, wearing …

03.03.2012-Fashion Week Top Five: London AW12/13

Whereas I found it tricky to get inspired by a lot of the New York shows, choosing my top five London Fashion Week was much easier, although I did have trouble only picking a handful of my favourites to share with you as there were so many presentations which I really adored. Being in London in the…

01.03.2012- The Luella Legacy

The demise of any fashion label is always a sad occasion, but is something which, in recent years at least, has become a fairly common phenomenon. Christian Lacroix Haute Couture was put into administration in 2009 and many high street favourites have also fallen victim to the downturn in the econo…
