I’ve got my eye on you, Dita

Posted on

I get through more sunnies than anyone else I know. I am DANGEROUS around sunglasses. I just don’t know my own strength. But when I found out about this new range from hot honey Dita Von Teese, I thought, now there’s a pair I’d look after. I love a wayfarer, I’m partial to a round rim, Read the Rest »

Back in Birkies

Posted on

Birkenstocks are BACK. Big time. I mean, for a certain portion of the population, they clearly never went anywhere. Those taking a gap year, for example. Backpackers LOVE a wee Birky. I could tell you a story about how, age 21 on holiday in Thailand, I had my pair stolen at a beach rave. Literally Read the Rest »

Save On Pennies, Splurge On Style

Posted on

Few things give me more satisfaction than those classic moments when someone says, “Oooooo, I LOVE your dress!”, and I’m able to eagerly respond, “IT WAS ONLY THREE POUNDS!!!!”. Yes, I am that annoying person. I regularly aggravate even myself. And I should probably add that I often misjudge both the volume of my voice and the company I am Read the Rest »

Posted on

I’ve made a new discovery. I don’t even know if it’s actually new but it’s new to me and I am LOVING it. It feels like the first time I cottoned onto Monki, on holiday in Stockholm, only to find out that a week later it was arriving on British soil. I was delighted. Again at the revelation Read the Rest »

Spring in Style Part One: Do It In Denim

Posted on

Denim is everywhere. I’m talking double denim. Hell, I’m talking top-to-toe stonewash. It’s all very B*Witched circa ’99.  Me? I’m still slightly uncomfortable with the ‘doing the double’, BUT I can totally roll with a wee denim dress or jumpsuit. While I’m there, I might even be lured by a dungaree. This spring – faded, ripped, short, high-waisted, Read the Rest »

What Mum Wore

Posted on

By Amy Murch The 60s and 70s : when prints were bold, hair was backcombed to within an inch of it’s life, and massive flares engulfed an entire platform wedge. All things rock and roll, trippy and far-out-man, abounded. The Beatles were making grown women cry and the D.I.S.C.O vibe was lighting up dance floors Read the Rest »
