Who better to flex his digits for the monkstrap shoe than Tony Shalhoub, aka TV detective Adrian Monk? The monk strap shoe was never far from my thoughts last year, it’s a great shoe and a refuge from the classic, but now ubiquitous brogue. With slightly scholarly looks they embody ‘back to school’ vibes like [...]
Every so often I get obsessed with finding the perfect version of something, be it the denim shirt, ankle boot or Carly Rae
The gladly defunct London Lite paper had a genius section called Get It Off Your Text, where a seemingly bonkers cross-section of Londoners could send their rants via the medium of SMS. This product selection is dedicated to you, you lovely bunch of nutters.
Getting It Off Their Texts here are Antoni & Alison with [...]
Recently I’ve been waking up singing ‘It’s like a jumble sometimes it makes me wonder how I keep from going under’, because my room looks like a tip. You may have seen me tweet about my ‘clothes boyfriend’ aka the pile of clothes that sometimes lives on the other side of the bed, or moaning [...]
My first encounter with flatforms were with some navy suede Hobbs loafers I picked up at a charity shop a while ago. Fast forward a few years adding a revival of brothel creepers and Spice Girl style Buffalo boots as well as the kiddy baroque shoes Nicholas Kirkwood created for Meadham Kirchhoff and flatforms are [...]
Summer means a whole new wardrobe, I’ve unpacked all my dresses, tops and skirts for sunny weather and my room is looking a little like Oxford St Primark at the end of a Saturday. Except it’s mostly charity shop bargains and Uniqlo, natch.
Here’s some garden-based pics of the shoes I’m wearing at the moment, [...]
I love reading a good Chrimbo Gift Guide, even when it gets to the ridiculous ‘gifts for your eco-friendly cousin’ heights. I haven’t gone quite that far, this is more of a list of things that have caught my eye recently as well as favourite products I want to share. I’m quite picky when it [...]
The Rupert Sanderson press day is always a serene thing of beauty, their lovely press office tucked away in a mews off Bond Street feels a million miles away from the madness of Soho and Oxford Street.
Elegant heels is what Rupert Sanderson do best and there were definitely a few pairs that ticked the boxes, [...]
Excuse the hollow-eyed serial killer stare, I’ve not quite got the hang of GMT just yet. I’ve been pretty much wearing this outfit on and off for the last week, kind of gross huh? My sleep-deprived brain can’t be bothered to come up with anything else and the cashmere/silk combo is really useful for both [...]
Looks like we’re going to be seeing a lot of ponyskin this coming season! First River Island’s amazing bright blue pair and now this cracker of a pic. Anja Rubik has been picked as the face of Kurt Geiger in a shoot that takes place on the streets of London. It’s got a real retro rock chick feel to it, which I definitely attribute to Kate Moss’ recent wedding, who saw those pics and didn’t want to be her all over again? Love the dalmatian-print boots Anja is wearing in this pic, definitely wont be short of dalmatian on the high street this season either.
