The perfect white shirt

The white shirt is a foolproof staple, don’t you think? It sits alongside the little black dress as a must-have wardrobe essential and I can’t get enough of them. A crisp white shirt for me is the one thing that can be worn with anything – with a pencil skirt for the office, layered over a… Read more »

Work Life: Holly Fulton, Fashion Designer

As someone who’s enjoyed great success in the fashion industry you’re probably wondering what Holly Fulton is really like. Having followed her work since those early London Fashion Week shows I’m pleased to share that she’s as approachable, warm and friendly in person as I hoped she’d be.

Afternoon Tea Waldorf Astoria

Tea and Fizz: The Pompadour, Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh

Can quaffing fizz and eating cake become a daily pastime? If the grand surroundings of The Pompadour were available I’d happily spend my working hours there, admiring the beautiful hand-painted walls, sipping from the tea menu and nibbling perfectly formed scones. On this particular occasion I joined an intimate group of ladies  at the Waldorf Astoria in Edinburgh… Read more »

London Fashion Week: Kane, Fulton and Kilts

There’s no ignoring the presence of a growing Scottish incumbent in London who are pushing to communicate our nation’s wealth of creative talent. At LFW this season big hitters like Christopher Kane and Pringle of Scotland certainly made an impression but it was over on the side-lines at a main schedule presentation that I smiled… Read more »

Orange Mondrian

This little orange guy reminds me of Piet Mondrian. The sequential squares, black lines and blocks of colour would be right up his street. Cubism aside it’s a rather pretty colour isn’t it? Not a colour I’d normally dare to wear but it’s a welcome change from red and/or pink (shades that seem to frequent my wardrobe a little too… Read more »

Natalie Portman

This Week In Fashion

What made you smile this week? The new Miss Dior video was certainly a highlight (could Natalie Portman be any more beautiful?!) as was Anna Wintour’s reaction to baby North West’s tears at New York Fashion Week. More importantly, Thursday morning saw actress Jamie Brewer become the first model with Down syndrome to ever walk at New York Fashion Week…. Read more »

    Although I’m partial to a printed trouser I’ve never owned a checked pair before – what do you think?
