Staying cool and maintaining an emblem of chic is proving to be difficult given these soaring temperatures. It’s all well and good when you’re on holiday, poolside with a mojito and surrounded by strangers, it’s a different ball game when you are trying

Are You Faux Real?

As an animal lover, sometimes it’s tricky navigating my way through the fashion world.
