Best Oscar Dresses Of All Time

Controversy be damned! The Oscars is undoubtedly one of the most glamorous events in history and as we gear up for this weekend’s 88th Academy Awards ceremony, let’s cast our minds back to those jaw dropping Oscar dresses of yore. Michelle Williams in Vera Wang at the 78th Annual Academy Awards, 2006. ~ Mila Kunis wearing Elie Saab at the Oscars, 2011. ~ Penelope Cruz in Versace, 2007. ~ This mermaid-like Jean Paul

Introducing: Free People

“…to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free Silhouetted by the sea…” Born in the 70’s, gypsy spirit loving label Free People is for those bon vivants who live free through fashion, art, music, travel and everything in between. Picture free-flowing dresses, soft jersey t-shirts and delicate lace, bohemian chic but less noughties Sienna Miller and more seventies Stevie Nicks. FP is the perfect choice for those adventurers, and anyone

“Paris is always a good idea.”

Paris Fashion Week Spring 2016 Haute Couture “Fashion is part of the events of our times.” – Karl Lagerfeld Croissants, an eco-friendly plywood dollhouse, fashion-mindfulness and bumble bees may sound a little strange when describing the Chanel Haute Couture Collection, but when it’s the world according to Karl Lagerfeld, what is strange? Organic cotton, woven yarn, dreamy pearls, wood chip beading and flecks of gold? This is an ecosystem we can

And The Insta-Grammy Goes To…

New year, new you! Well, it’s now the 13th January so that’s probably not the case anymore as your new year’s resolution fades to the back of your mind… But you know what might give you that extra boost to change up the diet, wardrobe and boost that morale? Instagram. Well, it might not boost the morale but it sure is a good way to stay in the know and here’s how

The Not So Golden Era

Ah, jeez. Here we go again being remarkably hard to please. Sigh. While many an A-lister, and Heidi Klum, strut their stuff at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards,  only a few good women stood out against a fairly mediocre red carpet. Not for lack of trying mind you. It’s just all a little… “Meh”. Maybe it’s because it’s January. Let’s face it; nothing looks good in January except Leonardo DiCaprio’s face.

All Rise

Now that fall is in full swing (not that summer made much of an appearance), we are fully prepared to embrace the Knit List and in particular, take a deep breath, the Polo Neck. Margaret is not a fan. I believe she used the word “torturous”. Yikes. Let’s see if this can change her mind. You see, the Polo Neck is one of those humble pieces that never gets much

How To: Scandinavian Style

When it comes to furniture and television, Scandinavia is having a good run. Margaret can’t get enough of those grey Danish murder mysteries and goodness knows she loves a bit of grey. That’s why this season’s collection is really tickling our fancy and we are simply non-stop Nordic. Let’s face it; you can’t walk down the high street without witnessing Swedish giant’s; H&M and its little sister Cos. Even my wine glasses

What To Pack For A Beach Holiday

Packing for a holiday can sometimes be a little stressful (just ask Margaret) and even more so if you are squeezing your essentials into a teeny tiny carry-on, panic can escalate pretty quickly then. If sun, sea, sand and lots of yoga are on the schedule then you can opt for beach-chic simplicity which means that you needn’t worry about packing the kitchen sink. Luckily for you, we have taken

Introducing: Maison Scotch

Maison Scotch, from the house of Amsterdam-based label Scotch & Soda, has that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’. Laid back and feminine, the eclectic collection is the perfect blend of Parisian chic meets New York City girl and has a little edge to make just enough of a statement without looking too try-hard. Eclectic and yet all the while exuding elegance (with a little nonchalance, just because) Maison Scotch never forgets the

Leaving on a Jet Plane

Budapest. And we’re excited. As much as I love lazing on the beach, supping a mojito; it’s hard to beat a city break avec les filles. Strolling through a city, sipping un café au lait is right up my street. Throw in a couple of my best friends and it’s a great way to recharge those batteries and the culture vulture in me gets a spin out too. So far, so
