Fox hunting


I like a new motif, and this much misunderstood creature is the latest muse for the fashion retailers.

I love these two from Aubin & Wills, the Portland jumper is £125 and the Bolingbroke tee is £35. Wear either tucked into your pencil skirt or with a pair of black skinnies and high heeled ankle boots.

This sheer blouse is really pretty and you could wear it from the office to bar. Yumi fox print blouse at Oliver Bonas £32.

Ok, a bit too much for me, but on a cold autumn morning you could pull on this fox beanie, £17 from Accessorize.

Here is my favourite……

Alex Monroe‘s fox bracelet, the fox is gold plated and the chain is silver. £135.

You would be mad not to….


….buy the classic items you will always need whilst the sales are on.

Kew 159 double breasted trench £99 sale price

Let’s face it, we are always going to need a trench coat in our wardrobes.

Opening Ceremony £241 in the Matches sale

These boots are great, in fact I saw Alexa Chung wearing something similar in New York recently. They are a great colour that works for Summer or Autumn.

Aubin and Wills blazer £87.50

A simple blazer can go with everything, from denim shorts and a tour tee to your evening dress and heels.

I always advise you spend your sale money on the items you covet but can’t easily afford at full price. In this case I am thinking about high-end jean brands. Do think about the longevity of a shape or colour though before you buy. Here are a few idea’s for you.

J Brand heaven print jeans £144 reduced from £240

When buying print in the sale I recommend steering away from the obvious Spring florals and look for patterns that lend themselves to Autumn dressing but are subtle enough to work for next Spring too.

J Brand hounstooth print £156 reduced from £260

Just have a look at these jeans I found in the Donna Ida sale, amazing bargain and there is always a need for a skinny blue jean in your closet!

True Religion jeans £94.50 reduced from £315

Good luck ladies, go shop.

Oxford or Cambridge?


Aubin & Wills have some great clobber in the Selfridges store at the moment. It is no secret that I love their preppy-urban look, but today I think they had next weeks Boat Race in mind when stocking the shelves. And I was loving it!

Aycliffe Blazer £225

Corsham Dress £55

Carnforth Dress £55

Plumsgate Playsuit £145

I know it is only the beginning of April and those legs may get a bit chilly whilst standing by the riverside between Mortlake and Putney. Get a pair of opaques on, plain black or patterned if you dare. And wrap around a fab scarf.

Colson Mac £325

Make like Alexa Chung and shrug your Mac on over your shoulders.

Aubin & Wills


I love Aubin & Wills, they have a great style that feels both preppy and urban. It was set up by Jack Wills in 2008 to cater for the “25-35 aged customer looking for effortlessly-cool clothing”. I think it hits the brief.

Tallard Tee £45, Dyce Skinnies £80

I know it’s yellow again, but I can’t help it!

Lumley Shirt £95 and Dyce Jeans again

I especially love their blazers and jackets. Really well priced considering the great quality and, at the moment at least, not everybody else is wearing them.

The Errigal Blazer £225

Transitional me


Since seeing the Jimmy Choo Justine-L bag my eye has been caught by all things yellow. Here are a few of my favourite eye-spies….

Rosebank Cardigan £85 Aubin & Wills

Dyce Sklinny Jean £80 Aubin & Wills

Sadie Cotton Lace Shift Dress £99 Phase Eight.

I would team any of these little beauties with a fab trench for this transitional stage.

Smartcatch Belted Trench £160 French Connection

And desert boots perhaps?

Safari Boots £238 Penelope Chilvers
