One Love: Tropical skies

Destination Saint Lucia. With snow on the path at home I packed tropical print bikinis, cool kaftans for sipping rum cocktails in and bright hues of nail varnish to raise the temperature.

Packing light and bright with bikinis and sun dresses, I left all heels and sequins at home like a shrine to transvestitism.

With a Marley soundtrack I explored smugglers coves…

If I could, I definitely would

I inherited expensive tastes from my grandmother 'Sally' who I project as a slideshow as a slideshow of elegance. I remember houndstooth check skirts, shiny court shoes and Chanel perfume, coiffed hair and singing 'supercalifragilistic' together in the lounge looking out of the bay window into the drizzly northern sky.


I recently shopped in Burberry and swanned…

Charlie Moss: a ticking fashion timebomb

The next generation of whispy blonde Mossiness is waiting in the wings. Charlotte Moss, Kate's 13 year old half sister is as fresh faced as Kate's first appearance in 'that' Calvin Klein campaign way back when. Seen here…

Madame Butterfly: Julien Macdonald LFW

It just so happens that I saw Madame Butterfly at the Opera on Saturday night and fell in love with the fragile femininity of the Orient. So it seems oh so appropriate that Julien Macdonald showed a veritable feast from the east for London Fashion Week. Shimmering flying fish, dragon wings and serpents embroiled in delicate embroidery and gilded aspiration.…

So, last week I visited Dusseldorf for an impromptu long weekend to look at all things Deutsche. I strolled along the Rhine in the sunshine absorbing the fascinating fashions and culture. There was a buzz in the old town where I sat and ate bratwurst in the pouring rain under an umbrella whilst watching four tandem tied Dachsund dogs hop out…

A Chantilly Web: lovely lace

When I was a little girl an old French nun taught me to lace make, not proficiently but enough to make a pattern. I was probably 11 and I was transfixed on the delicate dance of the wooden bobbins as she demonstrated how to weave her magic black web. There is something dark and gothic about black lace and to see a nun in a rocking chair making this sensual fabric in…

Geisha Gold

Enter the geisha. This beautiful creature revered for her mystery and creative  talents creates a welcome distraction from  western excess. With a calm and composed confidence the geisha is captivating. With silk kimonos, cherry blossom red lips and spinning parasols she shuffles through Tokyo like an exotic butterfly.


So absorbed in…

No Mad Hatter: Vivien Sheriff

Inevitably Princess Kate Middleton fever has hit and her future as a regal style icon has recently been cemented with a variety of considered outfits for public outings.

Kate has paraded in the predictable Burberry Trench coat and a couple of bland LK Bennett court shoes but the real piece of intrigue was an elegant hairpiece by British milliner Vivien… Continue

Mad About the Boy

I’ve fallen madly in love.  With a gentrified brand.  He’s not a new thing, nor particularly cutting edge. 

In fact he’s having a mainstream moment, something I usually avoid like pearls and curls. 

 You see - I never quite understood the Ralph…

Girl in the Cat Mask

The girl in the cat mask is swaying to the beat, squeezing a plastic cup, spilling with raspberry vodka. Mask parties have always added intrigue to alcohol infused gatherings. It is feline masks that have particularly caught fashion’s attention. From Marc Jacobs ad campaigns to photo… Continue

Smitten with Mittens

The big British chill persists and whilst nobody wants frosty fingers I am seriously smitten with fingerless gloves. There's something a little Varsity about clutching a hot, frothy mocha with frosty exhales in a knitted ensemble. My favourites are stripey, cable knit and of course purr-worthy cashmere.

Would be Good? Vintage Goodwood.

Tomorrow something truly'spesh' is happening (Aug 14-16) Take all that’s amazing about the UK and become a vintage vulture; devour retro-fashions, pick the flesh off a pop-art archive and greedily tear at nostalgic cinema until you are fat and bloated with cultural overload. Then indulge in all things thrifty, sustainable…

Gainsbourg: Si Fort

'I'm the man with the cabbage head. Half vegetable, half man' says Serge puffing on a cigarette, blowing clouds of silver smoke across the screen. So Frenchy so chic. This movie rates highly on the summer seduction scale. Gainsbourg the archetypal 'bobo'…

Blooming Bloomsbury

To be fash-forward, it’s often essential to look backwards over your perfectly angled shoulder towards a bygone-era. For me, the ecclectic and homecrafted style of ‘The Bloomsbury Group’ is a welcome distraction from eighties trash. I have always had a gentle bohemian crush on the Bloomsbury…

I want to ride my bicycle

I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike. Not just any bike you understand, for 18months I have coveted a new set of vintage wheels - but as yet I still haven't met my match. I am still on the quest for 'the one', complete with faded pastel paint and a sizeable basket. A…
