All That Glitters: The Party Edit

Is it even December without a scattering of shiny sequins and an awkward office party? After last year’s mini-meltdown, we planned our party season outfits ahead to avoid any hissy-fits. That way we can spend more time sippin’ champs. Win win. Prefer velvet over sequins? Yeah, this season is a close call. Once upon a time, we were firm believers that all that glitters is gold and absolutely worth wearing but now,

Snug Life: Stay Warm, Look Cool

Three winters ago, I succumbed to the puffer jacket. I had dug my heels in long enough, but you know when you’re ankle deep in snow, you really have no other alternative. Except for maybe hypothermia. The puffer screamed “giving up” to me. It was ‘mumsie’, a bit of a fashion no-no really. Oh, how wrong I was. It’s like being wrapped in a great big duvet. Statement coats are

The Gift Guide

Looking for the perfect present idea? Us too. Christmas is less than a month away and we have done nothing. Nada. The thing is, we have no problem gifting unto ourselves (ha!), but it can be a little tricky choosing a thoughtful gift for loved ones – no cheap sentiment here! No matter how well you know them, sometimes you just run out of ideas. And time is a ticking!

Velvet Crush

Give me all the velvet, right now. It’s because I’m a nineties child. That’s why I’m so obsessed. Thank goodness it’s now completely acceptable to wear it head to toe without looking like Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen (remember him?). We like to think, should we fully embrace velvet, that we’re more onto Gwyneth Paltrow circa 1996 in that lush red Tom Ford trouser suit. Anyway, a velvet blazer is the ultimate finishing touch to

The Little Tweed Dress

It’s no secret that we absolutely love all things Chanel-esque. So you can imagine our excitement when this little Benetton number landed in amongst this week’s newest arrivals. Cue screaming and lots of arm flapping. Not only is this workwear appropriate, but it’s super sweet with ankle boots and a more dressed-down approach. But for full-on Chanel – because that is never not a good look – we suggest adding

‘Tis the season of soirées, sequins, and Strictly

It’s party prep time and if you want to sparkle like that glitter ball trophy (we really, really love Strictly), then it’s time for some sequins. Be careful not to go overboard, quick step away from too many accessories and soften the look with some cashmere knits or, even better, a touch of faux fur. This French Connection number is ideal for lazy lounging over the holidays. If sparkly isn’t your

Caped Crusader

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly might just spring to mind when you throw on a poncho (if Margaret has anything to do with it!) but push past the Man with No Name aka Clint and picture Alexa, or Cara, or SJP. I mean, isn’t that enough fashion credentials right there? By the way, is it a cape or a poncho? You see, a cape is sort of like

How To: French Riviera Chic

Everyone’s heading to France this week for some sort of sporting event. While we do enjoy watching fit sportsmen running around in shorts (no shame here) we are much more excited about the prospect of a brief sojourn in the South of France. The French Riviera, otherwise known as the playground of the rich and famous, is the perfect place to sport a Breton and some culottes. If not there, then where? Don’t

Earn Your Stripes

Stripes. Again. You know it’s spring when you fancy sporting a stripe. I mean, it’s no secret that we love the Breton and thankfully, the fashion gods seem to approve the stripe season after season. Amen to that. Scroll down for a street style master class in stripes, and then, shop our edit.  Style Notes: A classic trench and a Breton top is a match made in heaven. No better example or

How To: Wear The Duster Coat

It’s time to lighten up and get out of the trenches. Wardrobe, say hello to your new spring jacket: The Duster Coat. Believe it or not, there’s a little Wild West history associated with the duster coat; the recommended “uniform” for Texas Rangers no less, the duster was ideal for riding off into the sunset. Sergio Leone was a fan and the duster coat features pretty much in of all of
