There’s One Sound That No One Knows

7 Oct

What does the Fox say?

I have a feeling that the Ylvis song about this fiery furred creature is not all we’ll see of the fox this season. Owls are flying away, moustaches must dash, It’s all about the fantastic fox this fall.

The fox motif isn’t just a clothing mini-trend, they’re prowling into our homes too. Cushions and crockery are my favourite items for an easy, funky update to your decor.

Farewell My Summer Love, Farewell

5 Sep

September is here, the time of year when our lazy love affair with sandals and sunglasses fades and we begin to feverishly eye-up the new season knitwear and boots. Ice-cream and long days at the beach become a distant memory and will soon be replaced by hot chocolate and cosy coffee shop sofas.

When I step out into the morning and feel the fresh snap at my skin & smell the cold dew on the grass I know that autumn is just around the corner, this thought fills me with renewed vigor and a change of focus for my ever increasing wardrobe.

This year I have decided that its high time we ditched the cocoon coats, mannish military cover-ups and no-effort parkas and actually displayed those waists we worked so hard for in Spring. Just because we have the possibility of hiding our extra pounds in the colder months under more forgiving clothing, it doesnt mean that we should. If we keep ourselves in check throughout Autumn/Winter we wont even need to do the big summer body re-haul next spring.

So with the waistline in mind and as the key focus for the new season I will be looking to Audrey Hepburn as one of my main style influences. Any female with an eye for style will almost certainly see Audrey Hepburn as an icon. The belted trench she wears in that scene from Breakfast At Tiffanys, you know the one with the rain, the cat and the kissing, is a truly inspiring Autumn look.

The bare legged, demure heeled look is beautiful with a belted mac but I am a big fan of pairing this ladylike wardrobe staple with something a little less clean and tidy like a slick pair of boots. I’m lusting after these beauties from Kurt Geiger.

Festival Fashion

22 Aug

What to wear to a (possibly rainy & muddy) festival requires a lot of pre-planning and a sudden change in the Great British weather can quickly ruin your carefully considered ensemble so imagine being photographed and pasted all over magazines!

Soapstars in wellies, denim short shorts and parkas are sooo letting the side down. Perhaps a blast from festival past is required, back to home-made tie-dye, bell bottoms and pocahontas plaits, peace.

Woodstock

V-Festival 2012 fashion moment goes to the very lovely Billie Piper who captured the laid-back vibe without looking too styled for the cameras, beautifully relaxed in her pyjama style jumpsuit and loose wavy hair.

Taking inspiration from Bille Pipers pyjama style and old pictures of Woodstock here is what I would wear to a festival (teamed with crossed fingers hoping for sun!).
