In her signature style black and white photography (which was what attracted me to her blog), Charlie showed how to create a laid back/urban chic look with the tee. Pairing it with a snap back and a gorgeous statement necklace. Check out ...

Hobbs London AW14 | Inspired By the Way Modern Women Dress Today

by

I attended the Hobbs AW14 press preview last week where the Senior Designer talked through the inspiration behind the new collection. It's the closest encounter I've had with the brand which has resulted in me having a different opinion about them. Pre-encounter, I perceived Hobbs as a brand targeted towards a more mature audience, women above the age of 40 perhaps. But ...

It's hard to go wrong with a white t-shirt, I mean is it actually possible? The Monica B 'Self Indulgence' slogan t-shirt is a call to reminder that fashion is about you. The underlying message of 'Self Indulgence' represents one who is trend savvy but not a conformist, one who isn't scared of breaking/dictating her own rules of fashion and ultimately, she wants to have ...

Having worked in fashion for many years and being a style/fashion blogger moving into a new venture, I am pretty excited about this first piece which is a luxe fitted statement ‘Self Indulgence’ tee. How cool and on-trend is it?

I'm loving the bright and vibrant colours in the new collection from Virgos Lounge, a London based womenswear brand.  I truly think the entire collection reflects the brands aesthetic which is based on their love for vintage clothing, combining contemporary silhouettes, trends and colours with classic vintage styles to create unique pieces.

Preparing my wardrobe for spring/summer 14, I'm sure many people would be doing the same around this time of the year. I tend to carry a lot of stuff forward from previous seasons and only buy a few trendy pieces at the beginning of a new season, just so my wardrobe isn't totally dated. Plus buying new stuff right ...

Before all the chaos of LFW this year, let's get this out - some ideas for Valentine's Day! It's not very typical of me to write about Valentine's Day, but I had a flashback recently which triggered this post. Generally, most women find it more difficult buying gifts for their partners for Valentine's. So, I've decided to compile this simple gift ...

Ummm, I think it's finally time to get with the program and join the team 'flat and pointy' shoes. Inspired by the ss14 Bottalato Loafer Collection from Nicholas Kirkwood. Not sure why I'm suddenly sold to this trend, but a lot has to do with the colour range and the sleekness of the shoes. I'll have them in all ...
