The embroidery trend has been huge. Transitioning really well from Summer boho into rich Winter appropriate wear. What started out as a few threads on some denim has really took over the shops. This type of detail adds real interest to an outfit. Fitting in really well with the luxe fabrics and notions that A/W brings. The perfect go-to for the party season for those who are not into all the sparkle and jazz but still want something special. A fine example is a Look i put together here. Something i am fine to continue to do if pieces like that skirt stick around. This is trend that works for day too when you can embroider just about anything. As usual…

Decedent prints and opulent fabrics, the whole feel is very regal . A really…

  No this hasn’t turned into a current affairs type of blog. Although this does serve the point i make about politics quite often. People will say ‘why do you care, it doesn’t affect us’. Oh but it does. It always does. This time however it is in a positive way (for the time being anyways). Since the Brexit vote for the UK to leave the EU, sterling has dropped seriously. As i type this, the pound against the Euro is almost evens. That sh*t cray. For the longest time we lost out so much changing money over for a trip across the water. We heard a lot about the negatives that will affect us as a country but are there…

It’s that time again mmwaaaaha-ha-haaaaw. Halloween is just around the corner incase the incessant amount of bangers and fireworks haven’t given it away. Legit jumping out of my skin daily. So the big dilemma as always is – what to dress up as. I have put together some costume inspiration that you can grab easily from some of your favourite stores. A far cry from the throw a black bag over your head and you’re sorted days. Halloween Costumes I feel there are three types of girls on Halloween. 1- The Sexy / Slutty ANYTHING kind. Umm yeah Hun there is nothing sexier than a giant baby. Blokes love that. The 31st of October is just one giant excuse to wear as…
