Moody Saturdays…

I’m sick. Not enough to be trying to sleep through snot and a fever, but enough not to go to kickboxing with my friend this morning. The light is streaming in through the windows. Milky pale wintery sunshine (but still) and I feel compelled to stay indoors. It’s been a tough week so a dose … Continue reading Moody Saturdays…

Work Work Work Work Work Work…

It's high summer - everyone's talking summer holidays and train disruptions (a hazard of European living). But I am have just started a new job and so my head is firmly in the working world and the wardrobe that goes with it. I often feel quite sorry for a lot of my friends who work … Continue reading Work Work Work Work Work Work…

Beam Me Up Gucci

Gucci is the gift that just keeps on giving. One minute you think you are completely over their overpriced bee motif trainers  and ridiculous fur lined loafers, the next they pop up with something completely innovative and smile inducing and you're back to being inexplicably hooked. It's so annoying! They are a powerhouse, a squad, a … Continue reading Beam Me Up Gucci

A Vision

I love it when a vision comes together visually (that sounds rather pseudo-profound doesn't it?). What I mean is, when you can see that a photographer, model, stylist and concept all come together and produce something clever or interesting or - and I hesitate to use this word - beautiful. The reason I hesitate with … Continue reading A Vision

The Danish Girl

I'm quite picky when it comes to models. I think most people in the fashion industry are. Beauty is such a subjective and tricky beast that you absolutely have to get the girl right. She is now sometimes more important the photographer as she tends to make a poor shoot look better (you could argue … Continue reading The Danish Girl

Look of the Day

Nothing wrong with a lot of bling and branding...sometimes. Almost never..but in this case paired with black nails and an oversized shirt I am on board! image credits: badlands

Bows, Ruffles and Flower Crowns at Rodarte…

So while everyone is having a meltdown over whether Maria Grazia Chiuri's Dior couture show was or was not original (Mr Gabbana is having a say) and also ogling Chanel's latest over-the-top stage (they casually rebuilt the Eiffel tower in the Grand Palais) my eye was caught on the Rodarte sisters' latest offering. Oh Wow! I don't … Continue reading Bows, Ruffles and Flower Crowns at Rodarte…

All Tied Up

Does it sound obvious to say expect the....expected? These days I feel like sometimes we play it a little safe. A little too black on black. The little black dress (firm case and point), an oversized white shirt tucked into a pair of slimfit jeans, a 'careless' trenchcoat, ballet pumps or a slouchy Breton knit. … Continue reading All Tied Up

Vogue Paris VAYCAY

I love it when fashion takes off on a little tangent. Like when two girls are frolicking on the beach in tulle skirts and pearls, just happily getting designer clothes wet and sandy all in the name of a mood. Enjoy this dreamy shoot by Cass Bird...J'adore!   image credits: the fashionography
