The sun is out – hip hip hooray! For me this means the start of the spring/summer season and that means a slight shift in my wardrobe. It’s no longer the weather for woolly jumpers and thick jeans – which can only mean one thing; dresses are back! Today I’m sharing my picks of the […]

As London Fashion Week draws to a close this seems like the perfect time to talk about new season trends for Autumn 2015.

Tuesday Shoesday ~ Festival Footwear

With Glastonbury kicking off this week, what else can I talk about on Tuesday Shoesday other than festival footwear?? I still haven’t managed to get any festival tickets this year, so I’ll be enjoying ‘Gardenbury’ again – the cheapest way to enjoy Glastonbury this weekend (see my blog post about it here). However, I still […]

Tuesday Shoesday ~ Comfy heels for Spring/Summer 2014

It’s a special occasion dilemma. We want to wear nice shoes with our special outfit. We’d prefer to wear heels because it makes us taller and our legs longer. But we know we’re going to be on our feet all day and don’t want to suffer blisters and aching feet by lunchtime. Whether you’re going to a wedding, […]

Tuesday Shoesday ~ Silver shoes

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 ~ Back to school

I’ve always been one of those people who love ‘back to school’ time. I’ve not been at school for many years now, but I still remember getting excited about choosing my new pencil-case and buying stationery supplies ready for the new term. In fact, I think that’s the reason that I stayed at uni for so many years […]

Tuesday Shoesday ~ Summer footwear

Last week I spent ages searching online for the perfect pair of summer shoes – something that would go with bare legs and pretty dresses – in a colour that would be neutral enough to look good with a whole range of prints and colours and could be used later on in the year too. I […]

Tuesday Shoesday ~ my bargain silver shoes

I had a very lucky week this week and I found these pretty little shoes at the carboot sale for a very cheap price. I liked the look of them and as I picked them up I spotted that they are George shoes. My most favourite and most comfortable shoes (the ones I wear when I want […]

Tuesday Shoesday ~ The cheapest way to buy shoes

I’m pretty lucky when it comes to footwear because I have small feet. I don’t mean tiiiiny feet but I have normal adult size 4 feet and although I sometimes think that my feet are a bit small for the rest of me (I sometimes buy chunky shoes and bulky boots in order to make my feet look […]

So last night I was lucky enough to attend the Company Magazine Style Blogger Awards 2013. It was an amazing night, and I’m only now feeling well enough to post my photos after a very late night and one too many bubbles 😉 Here’s what I decided to wear after a lot of outfit changes (I […]

Tuesday Shoesday ~ Monochrome footwear trend

You may remember that I recently wrote about the monochrome trend that celebrities around the world are choosing for their red-carpet looks, and this week I thought that I would look into the world of black-and-white footwear to see if this trend has filtered down to the high-street shoe stores. I know it’s pretty easy […]

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 […]

Remember when the January sales started in January?!

I remember that not too long ago (well, in my lifetime at least) the January sales started on January 1st. We’d all have a proper week off over Christmas and the only thing you’d need to drag yourself out of the house for was a pint of milk and loaf of bread. Then at 6am on […]

Fashion from the Royal Variety Performance 2012

There were sparkly dresses galore at this year’s Royal Variety show, both on the red carpet and on the stage! The Queen led the way with a pretty glitzy silver-gold gown, matched with her classic handbag and shoes combo and dressed up with a good helping of diamond jewellery. An exciting moment during the performance was […]

The ultimate winter wardrobe staple – your winter coat

It’s now the time of year when the jacket that you’ve been wearing since April will longer suffice to keep the chill off your shoulders. I’ve had three little jackets (all thrifted from charity shops and carboot sales of course) which have been worn in rotation during the spring/summer season, one for every occasion; the little denim jacket (perfect […]

Fashion inspirations: The cute-factor with Little Mix

As this year’s X-Factor has begun, I’ve taken a look back at last year’s winners Little Mix to check out their fashion looks and to take influence from their cutesy-teen style. I especially like this style on the Little Mix girls – I’d call it the ‘pin-up-housewife’ look and its funked up with the plastic jewellery and […]

Tuesday Shoesday – Tippy-tappy-toes

If you haven’t already seen this trend, it’s literally everywhere this month – just flick through any of the gossip weeklies & fashion mags, or nip into any high street shop and you’ll spot it straight away.

Time to celebrate – not only have the London Olympics started but also this year’s Summer sales have begun early!

Tuesday Shoesday – Summer sandals & twinkly toes!

Is it finally summer? Some days I open my curtains to see a bright blue sky, searingly hot sunshine and fluffy white clouds, and other days I’m immediately disappointed by grey skies and drizzle. In fact, some days alternate between hot sunshine and cold showers in quick succession: I’ll be too hot one minute, soaking wet […]
