OOTD: holiday time!

It's a grey, rainy, and downright miserable day outside right now. It's the kind of cold and windy woolly-scarf and hot tea weather that makes you yearn for a fireplace and some marshmallows. And yet I'm up to my microbladed eyebrows in all the summer frocks and sandals. How good is it to escape on ...

OOTD: a coat with attitude

Many years ago during a late night online shopping session I spied the kind of coat I loved but wasn't sure I would wear. Throwing caution to the wind I snapped up this fluffy oversized and obviously faux fur leopard print coat, which always gets some kind of comment or raised eyebrows because it's just ...

Style Icon :: KATE MOSS

Okay, remember when I said that Francoise Hardy was the living embodiment of my ultimate dream style: the whole just rolled out of bed with a rock star excuse us while we adjust to daylight while being all sexily tousled look? Well if there's one current celeb who absolutely positively OWNS that look then it's only ...

OOTD: Coming up roses

There are the outfits I cobble together that are sometimes more work or occasion appropriate than what I might normally wear, and then there are those things I love to wear that are neither work or occasion appropriate but are definitely more "me". This look is definitely the kind I prefer to wear. The mix ...

Style Icon :: FRANCOISE HARDY

Ah Pinterest, allow me to count the many ways I love thee. You provide endless ideas and inspiration, help me procrastinate like no other, and when I'm wasting hour after hour searching for some style inspiration you introduce me to someone who I never even knew existed but who unequivocally slays at the look I love best. ...

OOTD: feeling fierce

The second the weather starts cooling down some switch flicks in my head which causes me to forget, or ignore, all the dresses in my wardrobe that don't come with sleeves. It takes an unseasonably warm Autumn day to remind me that all I need to do is add a jacket. *face palm* Add the ...

Fringe Benefits

Fringes, or bangs if you prefer, get a really bad rap. Everyone tries to convince you not to do it because of the dreaded growing out phase and the hassle of daily styling. And I thought all of that too but went ahead and cut one anyway, one of those spur of the moment decisions made ...

Style Icon :: DEBBIE HARRY

Quite possibly one of the earliest memories I have is of Ms Deborah Harry. In my vague and distant memories she was this other-worldly blonde creature in black leather pants, a cross between a pout and a sneer on her face, with black sunglasses covering her eyes. I've no idea where the memory comes from ...

MIMCO must-haves for the month of May…

I was on the hunt for a birthday present the other day and popped into one of my favourite stores. And can I just say that I'm still not sure how I only bought the gift and not one thing for myself? MIMCO have launched their new Winter 2017 range, featuring lots of gorgeous wine ...

OOTD: pineapple power

For someone who thinks she has enough black in her wardrobe to handle life in the funeral business there are actually a lot of prints. Many times I'll see an out-there print on someone else and think how much I love it, despite the fact that I would never actually notice it in a store or ...
