On my radar: anti-leather bags

Rue de Verneuil

I used a tote bag for the first time in months last week. Like practically everyone else, I’ve not commuted since March, so I’ve been getting by with pockets for my daily walkabout, or a compact J&M Davidson camera bag if I’m going further than the coffee shop at the end of my road.

Here she is looking spectacular but not try-hard in a floor length Saint Laurent ivory crepe gown with draped and pleated waist detail and a black leather belt.

The black mani and immaculate red lip are equally sublime.

Classic summer sale steals from Net-a-Porter

Classic pieces to buy in the Netaporter sale including this Burberry trench coat

If you thought classic things never go in the sale, you can think again. And you can thank me later for trawling through Net-a-Porter‘s 457,805 sale inventory*. For starters, if you’re in the market for a classic one-piece for your summer getaway, I love the look of Mikoh’s khaki swimsuit here (now £108). Accessorise with Miu Miu’s coordinating cat-eye sunnies (now £114). (more…)
