And It Was All Yellow

Even if you spent it under a rock, you are probably aware that there was a royal wedding this weekend. The bride wore two excellent dresses, and best dressed guest *probably* fell to Amal Clooney, in a yellow Stella McCartney ensemble which was altogether fabulous. So fabulous, in fact, it sent me off on a yellow trail. …

What Would You Wear to the Royal Wedding?

Let us, for a moment, imagine that we are invited to the Royal Wedding a.k.a. the nuptials of one Harry and Meghan ('Harkle' as I affectionately think of them). I'm prepared to bet that your first thought upon opening that envelope - or maybe your second - would be, "What in the name of HRH the Queen do I wear?"…

10 Summer Dresses

Wasn't the long weekend glorious? How lovely to wake up every day and throw on nothing more than sunscreen and a sundress. So simple. So very much the inspiration for a blog post: the top ten summer dresses. …

Pastels for Spring? Groundbreaking (but Gorgeous)

Dare I say it? The weather has been positively (comparatively) balmy of late. There's blossom on the trees. I've bared my ankles for three days on the trot. Spring is coming and it heralds a wardrobe (and home) shift. I am sliding away from darks and into the light joyfulness of pastel hues.…

Lilac. Let’s Discuss.

Lilac. Discuss. I have mentioned before that Alex and I are on either side of the divide when it comes to this particular shade. Last time we were together, we saw a lilac coat. I cooed. She visibly shuddered. Which leads to me think that it may be a marmite shade.…

Be my (very stylish) Valentine

As January limps to a close, our thoughts turn to the new month - and its romantic heart: Valentine's Day. Red roses, hearts, the satisfying thud of cards on the doormat, gazing into your lover's eyes by candlelight... Or, in our cases, a night in with a meal we didn't have to cook and a night out with girlfriends #winning.…

Party Dressing: Sorted

Party dressing isn't what it used to be. Not because we've abandoned the brief dresses of our youth (we were more of the jeans-and-a-pretty-top generation) but because we have less chance to get dressed up, so we make more of it when we actually do. Nice dress for dinner with girlfriends? Absolutely. Jumpsuit and fabulous heels for a 40th? Bring it on (this is what Alex wore to my 40th and very fabulous she looked in it, too).…
