The Witching Hour

27 Oct

It’s the time of year when the seldom seen pumpkin gets centre stage in fruit & veg shops, costume-hire stores are ransacked and everything else gets just a little bit scary!

The British high street has fully embraced goth-like glamour and I think it’s high-time we threw out the polyester milk maid costumes and celebrated a rather more sophisticated festival of the dead, a little less trick and a whole lot more treat.

House of Holland at Urban Outfitters

13 Sep

 Welcome to the wacky cartoon, pop art inspired world that is the House of Holland, I’m loving the bright new collection which can be found at Urban Outfitters now.

On-trend prints of houndstooth and zig-zags teamed with the brightest colours are straight out of an eighties comic, teamed with mod details and more than a nod to rave culture these pieces are definitely made for hard partying.

If you’re not quite brave enough for the outrageous nipple pinching tee then go for the funky spike tights or a fierce wrist cuff.

 

Jersey Stripe Tennis Dress £195

Spike Suspender Tights £12

Striped Pinch Tee £65

Pyramid Cuff £91

Long Sleeved Zig-Zag Dress £110.00

The Season of the Coat

3 Sep

I like summer when it’s really warm and walking around with bare arms and legs leaves everybody feeling just that little bit more relaxed, you know you’re only on your lunch hour but a patch of grass and a lolly-ice seems completely rational.

As much as I love summer, here in Great Britain the summer isn’t really that great and most days the patch of grass is wet and a bowl of soup seems like a better idea than frozen treats. I think that is why I have an undying affection for the first chill of autumn and the wonderfully bitter few months when I get to wear my favorite wardrobe item…the coat.

A good coat has the ability to make an outfit, it is not a tool only for warmth but just another way to conquer whatever look it is you want to achieve. There are expensive investment coats that are so classic and stylish they will last your whole life then there are fast-fashion high-street coats that are inexpensive and always bang on trend so this coming autumn/winter there really is no need to be left out in the cold.

Here is my lust have list.

Lisa Wool + Cashmere-Blend Felt Coat (Joseph) £545

Valence Coat Navy (Hobbs) £329

Mohair Boyfriend Coat (Topshop) £89

Velvet Fur Coat (Pins & Needles for Urban Outfitters) £125

Hooded Wool-Felt Jacket (Marni) £720

Coat with Appliques on the Sleeve (Zara) £129

Fantasy Fabric Coat (Zara) £99.99

Wrap up in something gorgeous this winter!
