About Me

Hello and welcome to my blog!

My name is Addie and I live in London.  I’m a lawyer and mum (I’ve a six year old daughter Uli) and, as the founding director of AKU, I also have a background in cult Japanese labels (like Hysteric Glamour, gomme and  GDC) as a buyer and stylist.  (Yes, I’m a fully paid-up member of the ancient cult of time-juggling!)

This blog is very much a personal blog of my musings, observations, style crushes with some practical styling tips.  Let’s face it, if you are a time-strapped budget-constrained person living an actual real life, some of those insta-glam style blogs are simply not that relatable are they? Damn it, we can be stylish, fabulous and practical can’t we?

So, I hope you find my posts interesting/useful.  Otherwise, feel free to have a whinge and a moan. All helpful comments and feedback are welcome and mean a lot! And in return, I promise to give it to you straight (you can see my 5 Styling Commandments for starters).  It’s been a great year so far, thanks for all your support. Here’s looking forward to many more to come!
