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…

I inherited expensive tastes from my grandmother 'Sally' who I project as a slideshow as a slideshow of elegance.

I recently shopped in Burberry and swanned…Continue

There is something dark and gothic about black lace and to see a nun in a rocking chair making this sensual fabric in…Continue

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.

The big British chill persists and whilst nobody wants frosty fingers I am seriously smitten with fingerless gloves.

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…Continue
