Look Du Jour: Favourite Colour

FashionJanuary 24, 2017

As we get older, grow up and grow as humans, have new experiences and generally do life, the likelihood is that our opinions, passions and preferences will change. So does a persons’ aesthetic tastes and personal style… Yeah, in case that first sentence gave the impression this post was going to be super philosophical and self reflective, it is not. I was pretty much building up to that for me, one of the few things that has remained consistent for the past two decades at least is my favourite colour.…

Holy hell, how is it fashion week time already? Ok, London Fashion Week Mens, not the full womenswear month long multi continent marathon just yet… But that is approaching scarily soon mes amies, terrifying exciting stuff! Given that menswear isn’t really my forte, I decided not to do much over LFWM AW17 but obviously couldn’t resist getting suited and booted to hit up a couple of shows… Any excuse to dress up and prance around drinking champagne in the middle of the afternoon eh! The first morning of London Fashion…

Monthly Must Haves: January 2017

Happy Tuesday mes amies! Well, as happy a Tuesday as possible anyway…
Happy Tuesday mes amies! Well, as happy a Tuesday as possible anyway given that it is truly the worst. I’ve always been a fan of Monday’s, there’s a certain “let’s do this thing” mentality that comes with the first day of a new week. And going out on a Monday night feels, for want of a better word, naughty in a fun way while hitting the town on a Tuesday just seems a bit desperate. Then once Wednesday arrives you’ve passed the mid week mark and by Thursday it’s essentially…

Look Du Jour: Midst of Mist

Nothing like a misty morning, am I right? There is something really quite magical about waking up and looking out of the window to find the world shrouded in thick white mist. It definitely beats being stirred from your slumber by pissing rain anyway! I give it maybe two days max until I’m fully O-V-E-R winter weather and resume the time tested British pastime of complaining about it. Right now though, rain related moaning is the last thing on my mind thanks to this glorious coat… And every other element…

A couple of posts ago I posed the question “you know what’s great about winter?” and then swiftly answered it with a one word wonder: “coats!’… Obviously I don’t think outerwear is the seasons’ only attribute and did go on to mention a few others. However I missed out a crucially important one, namely, boots which I suspect you’ve probably gathered are the subject of this post. Yeah, perhaps not the most inspired post title but let’s move swiftly on and talk footwear… The OTT OTK Boots I warned you that these boots were going…

Look Du Jour: Over The Knee

They are literally my pride and joy right now. I’ve been hankering after a standout pair of over the knee boots for absolute years and footwear doesn’t get much more impactful than thigh high cherry red suede, am I right? It’s amazing how putting on a certain…

You know what’s great about winter? Coats! Ok, there are other good things that come with winter too. Crisp frosty mornings, mulled wine, ice skating, Christmas, hiding from the cold in cosy pubs, being able to eat hearty carb heavy fare free from the imminent threat of having to parade yourself semi naked. Unless of course you’re jetting off to sunnier climbs in which case discount all of the above and know that my bitter jealousy is burning a hole in your soul… Just kidding, kind of. But seriously, coats are…

Day to Night Beauty with Bourjois

“Day to night beauty” has to be up there with “wardrobe staples” in terms of big fat fashion cliches. But, like many big fat fashion cliches, it is an actual thing and a bloody useful one sometimes too. After all, who the hell has the time or can remotely be bothered to take off all their makeup and start over come sunset? Not me, that’s for sure! Thankfully with a little help from Bourjois I didn’t have to…

London Fashion Week SS17

Better late than never, eh! If I could insert an emoji here it would be one of shame and shiftiness. Maybe even the monkey-covering-eyes which I never, ever use because frankly it’s pretty lame. Not as lame, however, as posting your London Fashion Week SS17 looks two months after the event. I reckon these outfits are still worth sharing, but you guys should really be the judge of that…
