BURGUNDY PIECES

17 Sep

Burgundy
According to the fashion guides Burgundy is the colour of the season. And that's fine by me. I've never been a huge fan of red. It's a difficult hue to master stylishly especially if you are blonde. And even then i'm not a fan on me. I honestly don't think I have one piece in my wardrobe that's red. However, burgundy I am all over. Classic, stylish, yet remaining sultry.  A cashmere sweater, bag or burgundy skirt has gone straight to the top of my list of new season updates. Preferably in cord or velvet.

What I love even more is that this trend has filtered down into c ... Read More

UNIQUE SS14 HAS LANDED

11 Feb

Topshop-uniquw-3
Yipee (!) The Topshop unique SS14 collection has finally landed and once again it does not disappoint. Unique's slouchy, over-sized designs that we all know and love are in abundance - re-worked into barely-there sundresses, chic prints and that beautiful blue. The tweed fringed shorts and jacket, with a subtle nod to Chanel, is just divine . I basically want it all.

This is a collection that is not only stylish but totally baby-bump friendly. Great for hiding a multitude of sins post birth. (minus those crop-tops.) Investment pieces at your fingertips, that will not on ... Read More

Look three for my Madderson London style diary, featuring the Camilla shift dress. A chic everyday style statement that is just as stunning after dark.

I have been wearing this look a lot over the festive period, it's just so comfortable and effortless. At 30 weeks effortless when getting dressed is mandatory. Made from luxurious double-knit Italian jersey, with exquisite gold trim detailing, the Camilla Shift is more than just your regular maternity LBD. It's also surprisingly warm so perfect for these cold days we have been having. As with all ML pieces this is a styl ... Read More

TOO GOOD TO BE MISSED

20 Dec

Chanel-Vintage
I know it's Christmas and a time for giving, but the Matches sale is just too good to be missed. With up to 50% off some of the most coveted style items, it really is hard not to get carried away. Isabel Marant wedge sneakers, Gianvito Rossi pumps, Sharouk jewels, Chanel bags and too many fabulous clothes to mention specifics, I could happily re-stock my entire wardrobe. Luckily I am a little more disciplined than you might think and will just stick to the classic must-haves. Would I buy it full price? Or those pieces I have been lusting after since they first hit stores (Isa ... Read More

THE SHOW-STOPPER

18 Dec

Last weekend I attended a black tie event at Chelsea's Hurlingham Club. Dressing for such occasions can be pretty stressful with a seven month baby bump, lets face it you don't feel your best. I certainly don't anyway, and in all honesty the last thing I wanted to do was go to a black tie dinner. What was I going to wear? Thankfully my partnership with Madderson London came into play, and brings me to the second look for my style diary. They have just the dress for red carpet glamour.

The Juno dress, the Madderson 'show stopper'. A silk printed style-statement, with exquisite pe ... Read More

12 Dec

The maternity dungarees is a style classic. I just love it and ever since announcing my second pregnancy I have been dying to wear one. I was thinking denim dungas from Topshop maternity, but then Envie de Fraise sent me an email asking if I wanted to sample some of their collection - a dungarees was among the selection. Yes please.

Envie de Fraise is a chic Parisian maternity label, recently launched online in the UK and well worth a visit if you are in the market for some new maternity bits. At first glace I see elements of Hatch Collection - leather detail knits and hareem pa ... Read More

THE KATE BOSWORTH COLLECTION

24 Oct

Leather shirt dress £180
I love Kate Bosworth, she, along with the likes of Alexa Chung, is one of my modern day style icons. So as you can imagine I have been greatly anticipating her second collection for Topshop. I have not been disappointed.

Being pregnant can be rather frustrating. Thanks to bigger boobs (I actually don't like having a bigger bust, clothes just don't fit as nicely) and a non-existent waist, buying into the latest trends becomes more of a challenge.  Thankfully there is many a maternity label that now recognizes a pregnant woman's desire to remain stylish, but when it comes to non- ...
