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

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

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
