Furry Friends

Claire Lopez Faux fur, Fur Leave a Comment

For the last in my blogs on dressing for the festive season, I’m looking at fur. If you’re off out and sticking your winter parka on top, this may well just kill the look. So what you need is a spot of fur. Obviously not the real deal and there’s no need either because there are so many good looking …

If bling ain’t your thing…

Claire Lopez Christmas, Lace, leather, Party, Velvet 2 Comments

Okay so maybe all the bling from last week wasn’t for you, but you might still want to up your party game slightly and look a bit more ‘done’ without being overdone. In which case here are some different options to try and although all are very different, the common starting point is one of texture: lace, velvet and leather – …

Going Out Out

Claire Lopez Christmas, Party, Sequin Leave a Comment

There is a scene in the Trolls film where one of the trolls pretends to be someone she’s not because she thinks the King who she is in love with, won’t like her for who she is – don’t worry in the end the right message gets through and he does in fact fall in love with her anyway. But when she introduces herself to him, she makes up her name …

Putting the ‘It’ back into Knit

Claire Lopez Knitwear Leave a Comment

Is it just me or has the world suddenly gone Christmas crazy? Half-term, Halloween and Bonfire night are barely done and now it appears that it is totally fair game to sound the festive horn so to speak. But seriously people – retailers I mean – we don’t just want to wear sequins and sparkles for the next two months, …

Bottom’s Up

Claire Lopez Black Trouser, Culottes, Midi Skirts, Pleated Skirts, Trousers Leave a Comment

Back to those relaxed bottoms of yours – if you read last week’s post where I was looking at fitted knitwear then you will know what I’m talking about. If not, then I am not actually referring to your physical attributes, I am just referring to anything that is not a skinny jean or trouser. Often the way to stop feeling like you are in …

Hard-working Knits

So back to basics this week and I’m carrying on looking at the wardrobe staples you need for the autumn/winter ahead. This time the spotlight is on knitwear. It strikes me that there are a couple of overriding principles which will help your sweater shopping this season and help get you out of the skinny jeans and little sweater combo that …

Sneaking Around

Claire Lopez Trainers Leave a Comment

Slight deviation from the winter staples this week because of the changeable weather that is playing havoc with our wardrobes. Some days it is definitely boots weather and others even socks are too much. So I imagine that, if you are anything like me, you are still wearing your trainers to death. However, what I have noticed from seeing lots of clients over …

All Wrapped Up: The winter coat edit

Claire Lopez Coats Leave a Comment

In the second of my series on wardrobe staples, this week it’s the turn of the good old winter coat. Gone are the days when a black coat was about all you would buy and there is a whole world of choice out there. Whether you are on a budget or wanting to make an investment; are looking for something …

Well heeled

Claire Lopez Boots, Footwear 2 Comments

If it’s a pair of killer heeled boots that you’re after then you’re not going to find them here (well maybe the odd one). This is about boots that you can actually walk in, that flatter the leg and generally do the job. I know the sun is shining and it doesn’t feel remotely like boot weather but if you …
