Family friends refer to the well-dressed residents of Hamburg in Germany as the ‘Chicy Mickey’, in fact, they should reserve this nickname for Munich’s inhabitants. Perhaps the locals do not buy top-end designer labels but the main streets of this Bavarian city are exclusively lined with the likes of Louis Vuitton, Belstaff and lesser known local but still eye-wateringly expensive fashion…

Living in a big city like London it can be easy to get the commuter blues: no one likes sweating it out on the tube, elbowing for a seat and waiting for delayed trains. However, you can do little things to spice up the drudgery of getting to and from work. For instance, instead of having the dull case TfL gave me with my Oyster card my cousin gave me this Orla Kiely holder which gives my ride more swoosh.

Heart Stealer

20140723-124122-45682270.jpg

A man in uniform makes my heart melt. It appears even the hardest man in uniform can have a the same problem when in front of beautiful ball gown. I came across this image a couple of months ago in British Vogue and have had it on the pin board above my bed ever since. Some men who are very special to my heart are in the forces so this image is a happy reminder of them, their pride and their…

I find it fascinating learning about the inspiration behind collections and designs, especially when it concerns my favoured brands. The team at the affordable, fun and quirky, online/catalogue brand Joe Browns explain how they came about the design for their Summer California retro men’s t-shirts (one of which is now on sale by the way).

The brief was “boards, bikes and beats” so the entire team…

The other week I was enjoying a girls night in with my mum. I cooked a curry, we sipped on Champagne and watched the film ‘The Good Year’ starring Russell Crowe. Suddenly on screen, Crowe was sat in a French chateau wearing a Middlesex County Cricket Club wool vest, I nearly chocked. This is not only my nearest cricket club but I have a very similar hand-me-down jumper from my brother. Now, I…

This morning I was practising my French reading and doing some work related research by reading Figaro online. Whilst looking at what was trending in France’s fashion circles I came across a slideshow featuring swimsuits which use innovative materials. This Emilio Pucci number had me gawking at my laptop screen and proves that a one piece swimsuit can definitely be as sexy as a bikini, it is all…
