Easy Does It

Oct 29th, 2016 Fashion Kirstie 5 min read

There’s a chill in the air – I have that feeling of wanting to cosy up in textured knits and long cardigans in warm earthy tones. In fact I dug out my trusty Jigsaw boyfriend cardigan, in a tobacco shade, and love it layered with shades of denim for this kind of weather. Brands have been emailing all sorts of knitted lovelies over the last…

10 tips for a Winter Wardrobe Shuffle

Oct 20th, 2016 Fashion, Inspiration Kirstie 4 min read

It’s called many things…wardrobe edit, sort, clear out but basically this is the perfect time to take the stress out of the morning, ‘I don’t know what to wear’ wardrobe. I have been working with some lovely ladies over the last few weeks, we have taken the whole lot out and put back maybe 50% (with a little room to add the essentials missing) I…

A simple silk square?

Oct 11th, 2016 Fashion, Inspiration Kirstie 4 min read

Something I had to try, after seeing on the catwalk at Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana, was the headscarf. The last time I wore one with pride was in the early 70’s when my mum would make my sister and me matching dresses and scarves. We felt a million dollars. Now, I feel somewhat silly, but I do love the small scale prettiness of a…

Feel the Breeze

From raggedy jean hems and cold shoulder tops this summer to haphazard holes, multiple splits or just a simple vent in an unusual place. The ideal way to wear this trend is to team with super sleek – torn hems need a tailored jacket or pretty cashmere sweater and a holed jumper needs to be layered over a crisp white shirt and clean jeans –…

Foot Patrol

Autumn Feet. The last two weeks have flown past with kids back to school and new season clients ready to fly into Autumn styles. It was chilly,  then its baking and now rain, and footwear, as ever, is high on the agenda. My morning thoughts often start with what shoes I will wear for the day ahead, trousers come next and tops are easier. I…

Haste to Lace

Aug 28th, 2016 Fashion Kirstie 4 min read

I think I have always loved lace. The romance, the intrigue, the beauty and of course the practical bit of covering up fleshy areas without wearing a polo neck all year round! I have worn my lacy number from Warehouse, bought a few years ago, as an under and over layer. Experimenting with stripes under lace or adding a colour to make the changes, but…

I probably wear jeans seventy-five percent of the time by default, picking them up to wear with a shirt or smarter jacket as my go to easy peasy look… Vantage Point magazine  

There’s a pink thing going on

Aug 13th, 2016 Fashion Kirstie 4 min read

It seems pink is having a little moment and with its gentle warming effect for most skin tones, it’s a good bet to wear now and in the future. Its easy to use as a basic and looks sweet with denim or khaki which adds the tougher edge. In the new September issue of Harper’s Bazaar, they feature a Think Pink editorial, full of pretty…

Sarong Song

I know that sarongs aren’t on trend at the moment, whilst kaftans are having their moment, but after my recent holiday my trusty rectangle of cloth was really the saviour of the day. I bought mine a few year ago from the high street, loving the print, large size and tufty raw edge. I’ve worn it pleated as a scarf on the plane with my…
