Ribbons, Bows, Pearls and Velvet

Ribbons, Bows, Pearls and Velvet

Little glitter stars, butterflies, beaded-slides and bowed ribbons were a big thing for me back in – God – it must have been the late nineties! Wearing them all together in my hair, in and around my messy bun was my ‘thing.’ Then hairclips went from niche to naff, I grew up and they just […]

Last week I went to Sweden to host Ikea’s Democratic Design Days event (you can see what I was up to here.) For said event I wanted to look smart and tailored without losing the fun side of fashion that I love; for me it’s all in the details. I love updated basics, you know […]

What I Wore, When in Rome

What I Wore, When in Rome

It was my second time to Rome last weekend after visiting the Eternal City a couple of years ago for just 24 hours before a wedding; it was July, swelteringly hot and humid, meaning I didn’t enjoy dressing as much as I usually do. This time however, again visiting Rome for wedding (I know, my […]

How to Style White Jeans for Spring

How to Style White Jeans for Spring

Nothing says spring like a pure white pair of jeans, especially spring 2018. In the past they have got a bad rep and been associated with women including J-Lo circa 2001’s Love Don’t Cost a Thing, polymath presenter Clare Blading and Liz Hurley: too r ‘n’ b, too Sloane and St Tropez. I love fresh […]

There are some items hanging in my wardrobe that aren’t just wardrobe staples, they’re my armour and at this time of year that shifts from a winter parka to […]

This week I’ve been prepping for a shoot that I’m both styling for and modelling in which I love because I know exactly how the model will look and feel in the outfits! It’s a dreamy time of year to have a project like this because it means that I have to trawl the shops […]

Matchy-Matchy: Collars, Cuffs and Earrings

Matchy-Matchy: Collars, Cuffs and Earrings

I don’t consider myself a matchy-matchy dresser, I’m more than happy to wear clothes and accessories that clash or not even that exciting, just sit together and don’t say much. But when I do and it works, I love the polished effect; it’s like a sartorial signal that you know what you’re doing and you’ve […]

Five of my Favourite Checks and Tartans – plus video!

Five of my Favourite Checks and Tartans – plus video!

I’m half-Scottish and half-Australian, not the most exotic mix. My Mother Eileen (née McKelvie) grew up near London but with Scottish parents and a holiday home on the Isle of Arran she’s a Scot. I spent every spring and summer swimming and crab-hunting in Arran, until I thought I knew better at fourteen; little did […]
