Would you buy Tom Ford’s minaudiere-friendly Lips & Boys mini lipsticks?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

So much hysteria over a lipstick! But you can kind of see why Tom Ford’s Lips And Boys collection of 50 minature lippies is causing a storm. Ford does make exceedingly good lipsticks and these tap into our desire for teeny trinkets while also being rather practical (yep, I totally fell for the marketing schpiel – whoops).

Buy it now: Joseph AW14

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

In terms of sheer lust, Joseph is one of the shows I most look forward to at London Fashion Week. It’s the combination of easy, wearable silhouettes, plus inventive styling and perfect casting that results in a memorable show where you genuinely want to buy everything, not just admire from afar.

Joseph’s heritage lies in generously proportioned knitwear and 80s-90s layers, but modern Joseph is much more of a 90s-00s minimalist-masculine mash-up. Continue reading

Crème de la Mer Intensive Revitalising Mask – a hangover cure for your face

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Autumn skin is a bitch isn’t it?

The combo of weird weather, cranked-up central heating, comfort eating, over-drinking and under-exercising all add up to – in my case – bumpy, greige and generally knackered-looking skin. Continue reading

Could Farfetch click & collect be an ecommerce game changer?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Oooh here’s a clever move from Farfetch. It’s just rolled out a new Click & Collect service, whereby you can order from one of its international indie retailers but instead of having your order sent to your home or office, you can pick up from another of its retailers located more conveniently to you. With over 100 boutiques currently taking part globally, this could potentially be a real game changer. Continue reading

Borrowed from the boys: Paul Smith AW14

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

It seems everyone is jumping on the unisex/androgyny/ambi-sex bandwagon lately, but one of the brands that does it best is Paul Smith. Perhaps it’s not immediately obvious, I just think his menswear – the colours, shapes, prints – swings both ways. Continue reading

DRG Edit: Jo Malone London Christmas treats (going fast…)

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

JO MALONE LONDON always crack out the best beauty gifts and novelties for Christmas. They revealed all to the press back in July, as most brands do with their ‘Christmas In July’ showcases. (These are a real treat – M&S pulled out the stops, wheeling in a host of food suppliers to ply us with chocolates, hams, every type of tangerine and satsuma, I won’t go on….) This year we got a mini ice rink and every permutation of Jo Malone London favourites you could hope for.

And now is the time to buy as it has all arrived on counter and some things are already selling out. Continue reading

One for the boys: Tom Ford’s beard maintenance kit

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl



Tom Ford
nails it again. Who knew beard oil was a must-have? But clocking the trend for beards and their maintenance, he has just introduced a mini range of beard grooming products including Swiss-made beard combs (£28) and the soon-to-be-cult conditioning beard oil (£40). Continue reading

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: AND OTHER STORIES, HARDY AMIES, MAISON ASSOULINE LONDON

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar…

1. AND OTHER STORIES LAUNCHES FRAGRANCE

& Other Stories just gets everything right. It launched its first US store in New York last month to rave reviews and last week entered the fragrance market. There are four eau de toilettes (£26): Moroccan Tea, Punk Bouquet, Fig Fiction and Botanic Whisper. The packaging has a whiff of Maison Martin Margiela about it, with the apothecary bottles and utilitarian white labels. Continue reading

Retail report: Selfridges ramps up its luxury ready-to-wear with a nod to Dover Street Market

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

It feels like Selfridges has been tweaking its third floor Designer Galleries for ever! Finally its finished and the verdict is quite the A-Z of modern luxury fashion. In short, the Selfridges buy has been Dover Street Market-ified. (And  that sentence right there gets the award for clunkiest sentence of the year. Soz.) I still remember the third floor as it was eons ago – contemporary labels like Anglomania alongside A.P.C, Whistles and Joseph. Pffft, this is so not that. Contemporary and denim have all been shunted up to the fourth floor, leaving gleaming aisles of expensive statement-wear. Of course, I can’t actually afford any of it.

It’s a textbook exercise in taste and wealth though. Continue reading

J. Crew, it’s all good…

Whoever is art directing and styling these J Crew pics is doing a fine job. These are my favourites…
