Leopard or Snakeskin: which animal print tribe are you?

Not so long ago, animal prints were about as stylish as me building a Celtic Roundhouse in the woods on a drizzly Wednesday (don't ask), but these days they are ALL the rage. Leopard print has been a Front Row favourite for a few years now, but this season it has prowled into the mainstream, managing to straddle that tricky divide of being 'on-trend', but also a classic. Snakeskin, on the other hand, has been in the sartorial woods for a little longer. Lesser spotted than leopard, it's now having its turn in the spotlight and is beloved by serious fashionistas and those looking for a new take on the animal trend.

But, we're not talking about that kind of 'cool' are we? No, we're talking 'yeah man, that's cool', which is probably the least cool thing anyone ever said. Ever.…

Shopping the (end of the) sales….

The sales have been in swing for well over a month now and despite the shops looking like a very disorganised jumble sale, online is still looking peachy with some amazing bargains still to be had. I know that most of us are probably reigning in our summer sartorial spending, keeping pennies back for autumnal purchases, so with that in mind, I've only picked pieces that'll work just as well in autumn as they do now OR summer bargains so splendifirous, you simply have to snap them up....…
