This week J Crew launched a sneak peek at their November lookbook for their new collection of clothing. But what interested me more was the number of models wearing silver shoes on their feet. Despite understated feel of their clothing collection, with sturdy fabrics such as tweed, and a colour palette of greys and black, their […]

Tuesday Shoesday ~ September shoes

It’s that difficult time of year where it is 100% summer one day and completely cold the next. So I’ve got my summer sandals on standby and keep needing to drag my winter shoes out from under the bed, but it’s definitely not time to do the big summer-to-winter changeover yet, I refuse to belive […]

Thrifty fashion ~ Making denim look girly for summer

I don’t know about you, but I love denim for creating a cool, casual look – everyone has their favourite pair of jeans or denim jacket, but summer is a hard time of year to wear denim. Although it’s always comfy and practical (not forgetting always on trend!) it’s sometimes a little too thick or bulky to […]

Three hot summer sunglasses trends

In summer, we all take out our best attire from the back of the closet: those tiny swimsuits, those stellar heels, the raffia clutches and, of course, the craziest sunglasses. We’re entitled to: it’s festival season, it’s vacation season and it’s, ultimately, the hottest season. There’s no better excuse to wear the coolest stuff, those […]

Do you remember that I treated myself to Mollie Makes magazine last week and I threatened to take some time for myself to complete the sewing project that came with the magazine?

Earlier this week, on Tuesday Shoesday, I wrote about the trend for rainbow shoes and while I was searching online to find funky multi-coloured shoes, I came across lots of pretty rainbow clothes and accessories too.  A pregnant Amber Rose was spotted wearing this Jeremy Scott dress earlier this year to her baby shower, and now the high […]

Tuesday Shoesday – Super shoes at the Superbowl

I really enjoyed Superbowl XLVII this year, not only for the football (how long is an American football game?! seriously!) but because I was looking forward to the half-time show. And not only because Beyoncé was singing (and it was intriguing to see whether she would be singing live after admitting to miming at the Presidential Inauguration last week), […]

Tuesday again, and last night saw celebrities parading on the red carpet at the Screen Actors’ Guild 2013 awards show in the US. A surprising number of actresses chose to wear monochrome gowns, such as The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies below, and even more glamourous ladies went for classic black with sparkly embellishments. Of course, I wasn’t really […]

Tuesday Shoesday – Seeing red at the US Inauguration Ball 2013

This Tuesday Shoesday I’ve been having a good look at the photos in the news from Barrack Obama’s 2013 Inauguration for his second term as America’s president.

Tuesday Shoesday – I’ve hunted for the best of the Jan Sales!

It’s a pretty dull time of  year; everyone is back at work or school now, the weather is drizzly and grey, and the next payday seems a long way off. But don’t go thinking that you can’t afford a little treat to perk yourself up during ‘the most depressing month of the year’. I have […]
