My 3 Inspirational Style bloggers

Jan 30th, 2016 Fashion, Inspiration Kirstie 6 min read

It’s taken me a while to catch up as fashion news moves digital and, being a technophobe, the thought of learning how to up load, link and add meta tags for this blog made me all dizzy. But here I am 3 months in and (nearly) enjoying every minute of it (although I have messed up a few times!) I have enjoyed watching the experts…

It’s a Navy and White Day

Jan 25th, 2016 Fashion Kirstie 2 min read

Well, when isn’t it a navy day really. Classic and refreshing, with jeans or for a work wardrobe. Model and business woman, Ines de La Fressange’s new collaboration with Uniqlo picks up on the ‘bleu marin’ staple of fashion in her range, above, beautifully described in French (with translation) here. I love this classic cotton and wool piped edge jacket, in a subtle textured rib….

It’s the little things…

I was passing  Jigsaw yesterday with a slight diversion of going in to look around and spied something that made me feel all tingly. So simple but you know someone has put a huge amount of thought into the whole package, image, aesthetics – not just a pair of stud earrings, but gorgeously simple stud earrings in a bottle…with a cork and even the subtle…

A passion for Stripes

Jan 12th, 2016 Fashion Kirstie 3 min read

I find it hard not to love stripes. They maketh a look work every time. In fact, the only thing I have bought in the January sales (so far) is a stripy top from Marks (a top I remembered from a previous blog, see here)  Now at £9 it was a sure buy to layer under jumpsuits, sleeveless jumpers or under sheer white shirts to…

Think Spring

Jan 3rd, 2016 Fashion Kirstie 4 min read

Firstly Happy New Year – a wet start to hopefully an exciting 12 months ahead. This is how I advanced into 2016 – to make it clear I am the one on the left – in my attempt at Tokyo street style from Harajuku! I’ve taken a little break from shopping, I think after the Christmas madness, it’s good to breath and take time to…

Word Play

Dec 24th, 2015 Fashion, Inspiration Kirstie 3 min read

I know this is the wrong time to play with crafty things – at this stage I should be finishing last minute shopping or planning meals but somehow I got waylaid … I found the best sweatshirts in Sainsburys! I bought two for £8 (one for me, one for my daughter) dark green, great quality…oh yes they were from the school department but who would…

Boot it

Dec 23rd, 2015 Fashion Kirstie 4 min read

I’ve wanted a Chelsea boot for a while now, and then it started raining, and it became an essential. Suede and raindrops just don’t mix and not wanting to ruin my favourite mushroom suede boots, I set out on the challenge. I thought I wanted a mid heel but after trying these on from Jones Bookmaker, I knew a low heel was the one. I…

Let’s get Shirty

Dec 15th, 2015 Fashion Kirstie 5 min read

I love a shirt, easy fit, always stylish and the ability to wow people quite simply. Out of choice I would pick a 100% silk, purely for the richness, comfort and ability to machine wash. But there are some great man-mades out there that are too gorgeous to ignore. Shirts are the perfect item for Christmas Day, teamed with jeans or classic black trousers. Delicate…

Jump to it

Dec 13th, 2015 Fashion Kirstie 4 min read

The all in one trend is now fully mainstream, and if you’ve decided to decline this fashion (because its tricky to go to the loo!) then maybe its time you tried one on. Jumpsuits are super flattering if you choose the right style for your shape. I wear my favourite tailored one from Phase Eight, that I fell for a year or so ago, I’ve…

Don’t forget the classics – item two

Dec 7th, 2015 Fashion Kirstie 4 min read

It’s the little things that can make all the difference. We started with our core item of black trousers, see here, but now comes a tiny one, or two (actually maybe three!) 2  Core item – the cami Ok, it’s not so exciting but it offers great possibilites and they are nearly always missing in clients wardrobes. They are important in so many ways –…
