Fashion on Friday: Bardot a-Go-Go

Dress by The House of Foxy
(Click for details)

Because I have shared pictures of myself in this dress more than a few times this week, it seemed to me to be an obvious choice for today’s Fashion on Friday post. Whenever I know that I need to look the best that I can look, I go straight to Clare at The House of Foxy and ask what is … Read More

Fashion on Friday: Return of the Mac

img_2442.jpg

I couldn’t resist this title almost as much as I couldn’t resist this mac. For many years I have wanted to own a classic rain mac in that classic beige – probably influenced by a childhood watching Michelle and the ladies of the French Resistance in Allo Allo! The issue for me was always the beige. You can call it … Read More

Is anyone else dreaming of the Summer weather yet? Even though I know that I will moan that I am too hot fairly constantly, I do enjoy the warmer weather and the myriad of sartorial choices that it affords me. I love the sunshine, even if it doesn’t love me (I’m a pale, easily burnt thing). A highlight of my … Read More

Fashion On Friday: London Edge S/S 2017

img_2343.jpg

Twice a year, for many years now,¬†London Edge¬†has been my Fashion Week. When I first attended the show, back in 2013, I went to meet the makers behind the brands that I loved online and to meet more. Much as I despise the term ‘networking’ that is what it was! I took cupcakes and introduced myself. Over the years that … Read More

Good morning, you gorgeous lot. Regular readers and social media followers will know that I’ve had a somewhat busy week – in fact, 2017 has been relentless so far!

Hello there, you gorgeous lot. Apologies for the quiet week on the blog but I’ve been crazy busy in the kitchen! I will share pictures of what I created next week (though, if you are following me on Twitter, you may have seen them already).

… go with it! In last week’s Fashion on Friday, I shared pictures of the Rachel Dress from Voodoo Vixen, a mid-calf wiggle dress in dark green tartan with a faux fur collar. I make no secret of the fact that I love this dress and will probably wear it to death. However, it is not ideal for all occasions; … Read More

Fashion on Friday: Fierce Tartan

It was love at first sight; the moment that I saw this dress, I knew that it would have to be mine! That deep green plaid/tartan, the wiggle, the faux fur trim. Could this dress be any more perfect? The Rachel dress is a collaboration between Voodoo Vixen and Chicago Chic Blog. Whilst I was under no illusions that the … Read More

Some of you may have noticed that we had a few technical hiccups this week. As a result, I was unable to share any blog posts. So here’s a little weekend treat to make up for the silence! I woke up yesterday morning to a literal blanket of NO snow; we seemed to have missed the weather here in beautiful … Read More

… I’ve been an angel all year! For this week’s Fashion on Friday, I thought I would amuse myself by day-dreaming about all the lovely things that I would love to find under my Christmas tree this weekend. #1 Russian Red Lipstick by MAC I live in this shade of lipstick. Aside from the fact that it is the only … Read More
