Remember when black and blue was the Worst Thing? Mixing your neutrals was on a par with going at your molars with a toothpick wa-aay back but now it’s delish. In Copenhagen I was working a snuggly mix of black and navy which was perfect for the cold, crisp weather there. I love a nice [...]

This weekend was family time as we had my uncle, his partner and cousin over from France. Whenever we have anyone come visit it’s always an excuse to go for a walk around Greenwich or the Docks, it’s so pretty [...]
I love maps, I think it’s a family thing, my grandad always loved to get a map out. There’s something reassuring about placing yourself and also just from an aesthetic point of view, all that sky blue is dreamy. THe map above is a WWII silk map of Italy that hangs in my bedroom.

Last week the Farfetch.com team acheived the not inconsequential feat of calling in samples from around the world for their #digitaldressup event. As someone who just hoofed some samples across London, garment bags draped over my head like some kind of stylish batman, respect is due. Farfetch let some of their fave bloggers loose with [...]
You may or may not remeber my obsession with shirts which was kicked off by LF Markey and then came to rescue some much-loved summer dresses. At the moment I’m getting into tying my shirts in a knot, not in a retro 50s kind of way, more in a slouchy, relaxed sort of way as [...]
Recently I’ve jettisoned my usual tights jeans and shirt uniform been wearing lots of dresses with shirts over the top, the shirts de-girlify the dresses and protect you from the whims of the weather. Here I’m wearing a New Look dress, a shirt I stole from my flatmate (it’s in the wash for you Sam, [...]
This week has the dubious honour of Busiest Week Since Records Began, starting off with a nice post-Dunwich Dynamo buzz, a trip to Dublin and ending on two hours’ sleep for a shoot that began at the crack of dawn. Phew.Check out this gorgeous tweefest, loving trying the La Sardina Lomo camera. It’s a preview [...]
