Whilst there’s a certain je ne sais pas about Summer dressing, there’s really nothing more exciting after a disappointingly cold SS season than the prospect of wrapping up in AW’s latest offerings. And even though my mind ought to be on bikinis and tanning (I’m actually writing this on holiday – don’t judge me, it’s cold), all I can think about is the army of … Continue reading Faux Fur Favourites
We all have it. We all choose to wear it in different ways. There was a musical about it (or at least by the same name). That’s right, I’m talking about hair. Last summer, after years of growing it out in the classic (and by that I mean stereotypical) teenage girl way, I took the plunge (or rather, the cut) and had a pretty whopping … Continue reading I Got My Hurrr Did…
When it comes to make-up, I think it’s safe to say that I’m stuck in a bit of a rut. I never leave the house without it, but I’d hardly call myself adventurous (at least not when it comes to doing my own). So, when I go on holiday, my “barely there” look should stand me in good stead for a week or two without … Continue reading The Key To Concealer
Following on from my guest blog on Steranko’s website last week (which you can also read here), I decided to go and raid their stock for some great examples of making layers work for summer… The Anouk dress works perfectly over this spotted shirt, and the Lagoon clutch bag adds just the right amout of chic to contrast the Adidas trainers. This may not exactly constitute “layering” … Continue reading Steranko Summer
Ah, scrolling; my favourite form of procrastination!

And let’s face it, with Manchester’s somewhat temperamental weather, getting dressed requires spending a little bit longer if you’re going to get it right. We only get about 40 days of sunshine every … Continue reading Trans-Seasonal Layering: Top It Up!
On a slightly random note (and one of shameless self-promotion), I thought I’d take a moment to share this video with you all. I made it last week as a promotional video for my Young Enterprise company, The Beanie Shop. The beanies modelled in the advert are part of our latest range, ‘SURVIVOR.’ The most recent in a growing collection of slogan beanies, ‘SURVIVOR’ was … Continue reading Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves!
I recently read a feature in CR Fashion Book that explored the fine line between beauty and fashion. By using body paints to enhance a look, beauty can be transformed into a unique fashion accessory, making a paint-by-numbers statement. My personal favourites were the gold pants and silver lace socks… Whilst this may be a little too extreme for the everyday, I’ve spotted a few items … Continue reading Beauty By Numbers
