OLA! IOLLA Sunnies!

Posted on

You’ve heard me harping on about IOLLA on here before. Remember? Well I’m still a huge fan. As if their fit frames, astonishing value and revolutionary specs-shopping approach wasn’t enough, I’ve persuaded the Husbando into a pair and it’s worked wonders for our marriage. IOLLA, I owe you one. MUCH TO MY DELIGHT, IOLLA have Read the Rest »

90’s Flippy Slip Dresses

Posted on

90’s fashion is making a comeback everywhere this summer. While I absolutely cannot condone the resurgence of the ‘bucket hat’ – I still have the scarring image of myself wearing one on a school exchange to Germany burned painfully on my mind (HORRIFIC) – I am bang on board with the return of flippy little slip dresses.

A Little Red Dress

Posted on

I’d love to say I was a shrinking violet, a wallflower. But I’m pretty sure I’m not. I’m not one of those classy people who doesn’t say too much but says just enough. I say all of the things. Loudly. In mohair. Or a denim jumpsuit. Or both. And I never, however hard I try, look Read the Rest »

Rock a Sparkly Frock

Thank GOODNESS we are back in sparkly frock season. Get that jingly jangly, sequin-clad beauty out from the back of your wardrobe, the one that would look ridiculous at any other moment other than an evening in December, dust it off, and shake your shimmy. OR if you want to invest in a new one, Read the Rest »

I’m switching up my look.

Posted on

Have you heard I’m switching up my look? Well I am. BIG TIME. (When I say BIG TIME, I basically mean I’m going to buy some new shiz, not like I’m going to emerge looking like Lady Gaga or something. Sorry to disappoint. I realise my liberal use of the phrase ‘switching up my look’ Read the Rest »

IOLLA – The BRAND NEW Scottish specs we’ve got our eye on.

Posted on

Every idea starts with a problem.  For two Glasgow based entrepreneurs; Brian McGuire and Stefan Hunter, this was simple: glasses are difficult to buy.  They believe that traditional optical retailers bombard frame wearers with too many upsells, high price points and a poor choice of eyewear.  New Scottish start-up IOLLA.com was started to offer an alternative, Read the Rest »
