WHATSAPP STYLING

It all ended like it started with a Roland Mouret dress. And Whatsapp. That’s how I’m styling my friends these days. From the comfort of a restaurant on a Sunday afternoon straight to you in the changing room at Harrods, Liberty’s, Harvey Nichs et al. That’s what Sundays are for. Long lunches. Shopping. And friends. It’s why I love technology. Everything is possible – always. Read the rest of this entry »

TRAVEL: Birkenhead House, Hermanus, Cape Town – What to wear

Just because you are in Africa doesn’t mean you need to do safari-chic. Leave that to the opulent but paired back interiors of Birkenhead House floating above the crashing waves of the sea in Hermanus. Don’t hold back on the glamour factor. After all how else are you going to match the candy striped poolside sleek of crisp whites and sharp pinks or the monochrome magic of the sprawling zebra print rug in your equally sprawling room?  Read the rest of this entry »

Outfit of the Day: Menswear for me

 

There’s nothing more fabulous than a cashmere jumper, especially one from the men’s department or the cupboard of your husband, boyfriend…whoever. There’s also nothing more fabulous than the onion soup at Balthazaar Boulangerie in Covent Garden. Beyond delicious and if you’re on a celiac diet it’s perfect. Read the rest of this entry »

A pair of pick-me-up Chanel sunglasses

Was having a breakfast without the Tiffany’s kind of day and the only way to scratch that itch was to buy myself a pair of Chanel sunglasses. Only Chanel can put the pearls back into the world. It’s an occupational hazard walking through Fenwicks in the name of fashion research … and ending up shopping. This was after I went to have my obligatory Percy Pig and chit chat with Mary in the press office at Fenwicks. Mary who is as much a part of the Fenwicks and Bond street DNA as the double interlocking CC is to Coco and Chanel. Read the rest of this entry »

Gitterarti comes to London town

London comes alive when Frieze Art Fair hits town. It’s a wonderful mix of incredible art and exotic looking people. It also means winter is officially setting in and so are those festive party nights. I danced my way across the glitter strewn carpet at Sotheby’s to the indulgent party they threw for the Gliterarti. It’s always about glitter as far as I am concerned. So when I went to a dinner overlooking the lights of Berkeley Square, at Morton’s, the very same week hosted by Ghost and Rainbow Shoes it felt like the sparkle of the season was on a really good roll.

FENWICKS, YOU BEAUTY!

Any excuse I can find to wonder home through Fenwicks, I will. It’s a bit like Claridges. Oh actually they are conveniently within throwing distance of each other. Strange that. There is always something to find in Fenwicks…whether it’s my must-have Percy Pigs from Mary and Sandra in the Press Office, or my “where is that from?” shearling number from Karl Donoghue which so many people have asked me about, or the fabulous cashmere ponchos by secret undiscovered brands that the buying team always unearths to my ripped J Brands (yes you read that correctly) that I bought because I saw the then Managing Director the late Jill Steider wearing them on the shop floor one afternoon a few years back.
