New in: Aw15 accessory edit

marni aw15 accessory edit

It’s that time of year when your eyes crave fashion newness but you don’t necessarily want to go down the full AW15 coat route (even though received wisdom says you should get your coat shopping done in July). The solution? A cheeky little accessory edit. I’m feeling & Other Stories’ chestnutty leather bag and these massive Clergerie clompy sandals paired with Marni’s plaid socks. Yes, I would probably break my neck in the Clergeries (and these Rachel Comey stompers – although kudos to Comey for adding the alpaca sole to help with sock grip) but just humour me for now. I also love the tactile curves of Marni’s ball jewellery along with & Other Stories’ stack of copper rings. I like the combination of something simple with something loud.

From light fruit-fests for picture-postcard weekends away, to green and serene scents for the cooler evenings, here are the summer scents that I have currently on rotation. (more…)

Coming soon: Trademark AW15

Trademark Aw15

The Burch girls from Trademark are quietly building a solid brand, assembled around all my favourites – coats, knits and shirts. They arrived on the New York scene only a few seasons ago with their ‘modern preppie’ sweatshirts and considered accessories and have developed a strong signature that I guess is in keeping with the idea of American sportswear. That is, ‘sportswear’ in the traditional sense of everyday separates, as opposed to Lulu Lemon-esque ‘athleisure‘. (more…)

Buy it now: Charlotte Tilbury Norman Parkinson collection

My personal favourite from the Charlotte Tilbury Norman Parkinson collection has to be the Matte Revolution lipstick in 1975 Red. It’s a great ‘colour-pop’ shade; well pigmented, beautifully formulated (matte but non-drying) and in stunning weighty golden packaging, so I think it’s worth the spendy £23 price. (more…)
