Casually Luxe-ing Up A Little Black (Vest) Dress

Whether you like them long or short, fitted or loose, vest dresses are easy and forgiving to wear.  And if you like to wear yours casually like I do, then you probably always pair them with flat sandals or trainers. But, laid-back and comfortable doesn’t mean having to loose out on the “chic factor” and some … [Read more…]

White Shirt, Black Jeans, Mules + A Teeny Tote

After years being consigned to “mummy bags” – on account of the small mountain of c.r.a.p. that usually accompanies a small child – carrying a teeny bag feels almost decadent. This small but perfectly formed leather tote from & Other Stories is a gorgeous example of a high street piece punching above its weight.  Fabulously bijou but … [Read more…]

First outings: Large Kenzo X H&M Shopper. (An instant classic but not for all seasons)

My Kenzo x H&M shopper FINALLY got its first outing last weekend. I’ve had it for seven months (the collection landed last November!) but this just isn’t a Winter bag – the colour and style are not for soggy conditions. Happily, Saturday was gloriously sunny. And with a bulky gift to carry to a 6 … [Read more…]
