Mid Summer Sales


The sales are just starting and I have had a quick look through for some early bargains.


Shoes are always top of my list! The first pair from Kurt Geiger are £129 reduced from £220, the second are of course Charlotte Olympia’s zodiac pumps. With the sale on they are now within my budget, £299. Both available from Selfridges.

The smart sweatpants here are a bargain at £75, from Isabel Marant and you could team them with this long line blazer also Isabel Marant at £200. From matchesfashion.

These two dresses turned my head at netaporter.

The stripe dress from By Malene Birger is reduced to £212 the second dress is from Philosophy at £223.

Pretty maids all in The Row


Today’s inspiration? Yesterday’s birthday girls.

Resort collection from The Row.

They do know a thing or two about style those Olsen girls.

As The Row is a little pricey for me I will be copy-catting the over-all look.

Here we go….

Mim dress Reiss £110

Kurt Geiger brogues sale price £75

Striped dress Agnes B €175

Two tone dress Comptoir des Cotonniers £137

If you can’t get to an Agnes B store don’t be put off shopping online by the prices in Euro’s, they do ship to the UK.

British Bank Holiday!


Come on people, it may be a rainy Jubilee weekend but that is no reason to forget about style!

Let’s sort that out. I am sure you, like me, have parties to attend with a red white and blue theme. Retailers have gone mad with Jubilee themed items.  Some good, some bad.


Alexander McQueen clutch bag


Next vest top £25

Markus Lupfer jumper £300

In my opinion though, you shouldn’t spend money on something you will only want to wear for one day. With white being a major trend for this summer, I am going to take inspiration from the Celine Spring/Summer campaign.

I will wear this look this summer when I am in Como and for this weekend I will just add a few hints of patriotism.

Like a bright blue clutch bag.

Anya Hindmarch Valorie clutch bag £350

And a pair of red sandals.

Kurt Geiger sandals £120

All great pieces I will wear again and again. What about the rain I hear you cry….

Topshop clear plastic mac £36.00

Get out and celebrate British-ness!



Enough with the rain already


I am making a protest and refuse to put my Hunter wellies back on. Lets put on our Spring outfits and just add these boots to wade through the puddles nonchalantly.

Rick Owens £770

Find Rick Owens at Selfridges.

Zara £79.99

Kurt Geiger £75.00

These Sissy boots above are currently in the sale!


Spring jump


The fabulous Spring weather this week has had me pulling last years Prada wedges out of the closet and they still look great but I am all for something new. If like me you like to spend quite a bit on a pair of new shoes then you have to consider what look you will want to wear over the next few weeks.

I love wedges and they look great with so many things, like this lovely D&G shirt dress…….

Scarf Print dress £535

Dolce & Gabbana have some lovely wedges in this season following the trend for print on to the shoes…

Wedges £320

I think wedges look great with boyfriend jeans and skinny rolled up or cropped jeans too. I even wore my Prada wedges with tights a month or so ago.

Anyway I think I have established that I should hold off buying new wedges for now and think of a different shoe shape.

Dora shoe Kurt Geiger £140


Now these are a completely different animal. I think these shoes would give some print or pastel skinnies a harder edge and definitely would look cool with the sport-luxe style for this season.

Versus SS12

I need to get out of here and hit the shops.
