Coats to lust after

Do not be fooled … we may be experiencing a bit of an Indian Summer but that does not mean you should be lulled into a false sense of security and delay your coat purchase for the season. Retailers follow an insane buying calendar which means that coats are in stores in August before we have really had a chance to …

These boots are made for walking…

Once I am dressed, that is it. I don’t tend to look back or fret. However, this weekend I was at Blenheim Horse Trials in the glorious sunshine and found myself woefully out of kilter with the sartorial mood favoured by 99% of the people there. Clearly I had missed the memo about the dress-code and I kept wondering if they all …

Knitwear: the term just sounds a bit old-fashioned and conjurs up images of twinsets or dowdy cardigans. And if ‘knitwear’ sounds frumpy, then ‘shumper’ definitely sounds even worse: more cleaning product than clothing.

Is it just too much to ask for us to have an actual summer? And I don’t mean a couple of days here and there of sunshine.

Hurray the sun is shining and currently not a cloud in the sky. So why am I feeling blue? Well, it’s all about the colour blue, specifically navy blue and not my mood, which if it were a colour would be yellow. The catwalks were full of blues for this spring/summer season from gorgeous azures through to palest ice tones, never …

Apologies in advance – this post may be a touch on the self-indulgent side as I was on a mission last week to find a dress I could wear to the evening wedding reception of one of my husband’s clients. Without going into too many details I needed to find a dress that was more on the glam end of the spectrum than I …
