Gorgeous Gingham

This Summer –  Gingham Rules. Fresh, upbeat, preppy-pretty. There’s just something so special about this print loved by Hollywood icons Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. Pink and pale blue always look soft and feminine while red and crisp monochrome smartens up any sunny day….

Orange is the New Grey

Grey was always the go-to colour for classic chic handbags –  but recently Orange has taken centre stage. Seen everywhere as an all season colour pop with elegance and a real sense of fun.

Perfect for the start of Spring – and working well all year……

Michael Kors Selma Saffiano Tote – £315

I love this bag with it’s generous space, clever zips and solid ladylike structure. Looks good in every light – night or day and works for both formal and casual events. The shoulder strap gives you great mobility and the bag fits well against the body – the boxy shape is just flat enough.

Perfect!

Winter Nails

Rich colours, classic tones – Winter nails are all about perfectly polished CHIC. I love the gorgeous rounded stilleto shape, which adds a really decadent feel to your manicure. Also known as Almond – the Rounded Stiletto works so well with darker berry shades and adds a fierce femininity to your hands.

Time to Sparkle!

Keep your feet gorgeously cosy this Winter with the latest additions to the Ugg Sparkle range.

This years it’s all about animal magic – with leopard print taking centre stage. There’s also an icy focus  – the new cool blue joining the classic silver and black shimmer. The short shape flatterers the leg and they add a glamorous touch to the start of the season. As we move into Winter, these will give you that Christmas sparkle while also brightening up January. You can wear them all year round and they add a statement look to a simple outfit. Perfect!!

Soft, beautiful, easy to wear, the Blanket Cape goes with everything and adds a certain put together chic. Combining elegant elements of the traditional Cape -yet with more coverage and giving you a touch of Boho that looks so wonderful this Autumn.

Chic Bob

It’s Autumn. The leaves are turning a golden red and we are back in our skinny jeans, layering up with knits and tailored jackets. It’s also the perfect time to give your hair an elegant update. After the carefree feel of Spring Layers and Summer’s Bad Girl Bob – the next step is the Autumn Chic Bob. Smooth, sleek, blunt cut beauty. This look is all about full, fierce cool.  Take it shorter at the back if you still crave layers or keep a little movement around the face, but the overall feel is simple and super classy.

Britney looks amazing with her Chic Bob

Blow dry upside down for height at the root and then use flat irons for poker straight style. Use a serum to tame flyaways.

 We love Lee Stafford Poker Straight shampoo and conditioner.  They smell amazing, actually reduce the negative charge on the surface of your hair  and leave your locks silky and gorgeous. Boots – £5.99

Gold warms up the skin so highlights a good Summer tan. As the light starts to change for Autumn, you want rich hues and warm shades to flatter. Add a statement lip in rich russet red or muted plum for an up to the minute feel.
