This time of year things start to get busy with Christmas parties, end of year work dos, New Years Eve and general festive season madness.

So, I’ve done the hard yards and found some gorgeous outfits to help you get your glam look ahead of time. Continue reading

Where to buy plus size bridal gowns

Where to buy plus size bridal gowns

Whether you’re a size 6, a size 16 or a size 26 I think that every bride deserves to feel like a million dollars on her wedding day. I’ve had a few friends who have had horrible experiences when they’ve gone to try on dresses because there haven’t been any above a size 12 to try on and the sales assistant has been a dick about it resulting in bride in tears and no wedding dress, and I want to let you know that it doesn’t have to be like that!

Where to buy plus size bridesmaid dresses

Wedding season is almost upon us and I’ve already had a lot of people asking me about where to find plus size bridesmaid dresses.

Sweet Like Candy

Pantone Colour of the Year - Rose Quartz and Serenity

The Pantone Colours of the Year are Rose Quartz and Serenity – a warm rose tone and a cool tranquil blue. This means that we are now seeing a lot of pastel/candy colours cropping up everywhere from homeware to fashion and I for one am loving it. I thought that with Easter just around the corner I’d share a few sweet treats that have been catching my eye…

Trend Tip: Monochrome

Monochrome is a timeless trend – black and white look amazing together and are an instantly classy look. No matter what the season, you can rock the monochrome look or brighten it up with a pop of colour. Here are a few of my favourite monochrome pieces right now…

The skater skirt is still a firm favourite of mine – I love the way that it kicks out at the bottom, and think that this variegated stripe looks super cool! Continue reading

Trend Tip: Emerald

Emerald is the Pantone 2013 Colour of the Year. It’s also the birthstone of all those born in May, myself included…


I thought I’d share a few fabulous ways you can be on trend with your wardrobe and accessories, and look so good everyone else will be green with envy…

I love the lace detailing on this frock.  Winter might be on the way, but this dress makes it seem like Spring. Team it up with a masculine blazer and a classic clutch. Continue reading

Trend Tip: Oxblood

Introducing the hottest new colour trend for Autumn/Winter 2013 (and where to find it)…

Oxblood: the "in" shade for AW13

Oxblood: the “in” shade for AW13

Oxblood is in, so say the fashion masses. It’s a deep red wine colour that is reminiscent of drinking mulled wine as the air grows crisper and the leaves change colour (my favourite time of year), making it perfect for Autumn/Winter. It’s deep and luxurious, with a lush richness that makes it super striking.

I’m loving oxblood knits – keep your eye out for warm snuggly sweaters or luxurious infinity loop scarves (something definitely on my wish list!), or add in a little colour with an oxblood lipstick or nail polish. Oxblood is perfectly paired with black, charcoal, white and other neutrals – a jump away from the garish neons we have been seeing all summer.

Here are a few of my fave finds (and where you can get them) – what do you think? Continue reading
