You know when you’re all over a season’s trends as you see it on the catwalk, then by the time the season actually comes round you’re actually OVER those trends? Well compiling Living South and the Guide’s AW trend feature -which came out last month- I tried to pick some pieces you wouldn’t be sick [...]
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.

This post is just Things That I Was Looking At When I Was Sick, nice huh? The no 6 clogs are totally winter inappropriate, but that’s exactly why I love them. The Mawi for Asos necklace is a no-brainer, instant posh-eriser for your everyday outfits. Frothy lace is another winter inappropriate or inattendu fabric, and [...]
I came across these Nadav Kander pictures on Krisatomic and was a little bowled over. The colours, and washed out, humid atmosphere that you only seem to get in East Asia. Everything softly muted and slightly dulled.
It made me want to pick out a few clothes following this muted palette, with simple neutral pieces [...]
