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

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 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 well

Best Dressed At The 2016 Emmy Awards

Hands down, Emily Ratajkowski was this year’s best dressed at the 68th Emmy Awards wearing this gorgeous Zac Posen gown complete with über flattering mermaid silhouette, and ruffles, lots and lots of ruffles. See? Stunning! 🙌 P.S. Special shout out and HUGE congratulations to Northern Ireland’s Pamela Smyth on her well deserved Emmy win for Outstanding Make-Up featured in everyone’s obsession, Game of Thrones. Doing her bit for Norn Iron. Bravo!!👏

Working It

Dolly Parton sang it best in 1980: “workin’ 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin’”. Well, it beats reading the Beano. Some things (scarily) haven’t changed since then. Drinking copious amounts of coffee, never ending spreadsheets, the stressful morning commute to the corner office, (okay, desk – but one day!), we still hit a red light running five minutes late, there’s a ladder in the tights and wait,

How To: Model Off-Duty

When they’re not strutting down the runway, models are just like us. Um, no, not at all actually, but they do prefer to trade couture for laid-back looks when off-duty. So, next time you are having one of those mornings, you know the sort, you’re late, you’ve absolutely nothing to wear, the wardrobe is so crammed you just can’t see, you can’t see anything, think “off-duty-model”. It’s not rubbing salt

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

The 2016 Met Gala

Ever since Blair Waldorf sat on those Met steps, the Met Gala has meant that much more to us. And two years ago when Blake and Ryan looked like that (and he looked at her like that), the Met surpassed all our expectations. So, maybe that’s why we have become so very hard to please; like we weren’t already. The dress code for the Met Gala is themed in accordance with the annual fashion exhibition

How To: Festival Fashion

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is arguably more about fashion than music these days, with more celebrities attending than performing but with sun, desert heat, blue skies, G n’ R and Jared Leto floating about, who’s complaining. Here’s what we’ve learned so far: Blonde Hair, Don’t Care. Jury’s out on this one. Sorry Tay. Just Peachy. Day One: Kylie opts for peach perfect hair. Over the Rainbow. Day Two:

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

Oscars 2016: The Best Dressed

Welcome to the 88th Academy Awards. It’s fair to say that sometimes, just sometimes, we forget that the Oscars are actually about the films and not the fashion. Sorry Scorsese. Moving on, and the nominees for Best Dressed are… Daisy Ridley in Chanel Haute Couture Maeve’s favourite, the oh-so-slightly shorter length is a little daring for the Oscars red carpet and that’s why we like it. Nothing on Cher mind you! Saoirse Ronan in
