WHAT’S HOT ON THE HIGH STREET THIS AUTUMN

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Autumn is always my favourite time of the year as I feel we get to wear the colours and fabrics that feel good and suit our personality.

It may seem cliché, but as the leaves turn colour so do my love of autumnal shades, and they can be anything from holy hues to florid flame and it seems anything goes this season.

We see reds and pinks combined, bright yellows with shades of green, tartans are back and kimonos worn over jeans outdoors.

Here are some samples of what is hot on the high street.

Paloma Printed Kimono – Monsoon £80

 

Cord Shirt – pink – River Island £36

 

Oversized Mustard Boucle Coat – V by Very £80

 

Ferne Jersey Midi Dress – Boden £90

 

Vintage Tartan mid swing Dress 50s style – Rosegal £16.22

SUNGLASSES TO TURN HEADS AND COMPLETE THE CHIC

SUNGLASSES TO TURN HEADS AND COMPLETE THE CHIC

Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

As we embrace the warmer climes our mission is to rediscover our own style in selecting a pair of sunglasses.  They are both a statement and an essential part of our wardrobe as well as our wellbeing, and both should be seriously taken into consideration.

Sunglasses have completed many iconic outfits throughout the past decades from Audrey Hepburn to Jackie Kennedy/Onassis, and now is our chance to create our own identity, even if inspired by one of the legends of Society or the Silver Screen.  There is nothing like a great pair of sunglasses to complete an outfit and give you that extra chic and confidence which is guaranteed to turn heads.

It is tempting to opt for a cheaper pair of sunglasses and there are many around on the High Street, and this could be a false economy as they can both fall apart and go out of fashion very quickly.  So we are giving you a few options of sunglasses that will stand the test of time, both in quality and as classics in their own right.

Ray-Ban Jackie Ohh Tortoise £127 – from Very


https://www.very.co.uk

Saint Laurent – Kate Cat-eye acetate sunglasses – black one size £270  from Net-a-Porter


https://www.net-a-porter.com

Ray-ban Erika Sunglasses £64 – from the Sunglasses Shop


https://www.sunglasses-shop.co.uk

Vogue Eyewear Gigi Hadid Square Tortoise Sunglasses – Pink/Brown Tort, Now £61 – from Very


https://www.very.co.uk

Aviator Sunglasses – Rose Gold – Ray-Ban £135 – from Very

CLOTHES THAT TRAVEL – FROM BEACH WEAR TO BAR AND BEYOND

CLOTHES THAT TRAVEL – FROM BEACH WEAR TO BAR AND BEYOND

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

If you are about to head off on holiday and want some last minute ideas for adapting your outfits from the Beach to the Restaurant, Café or Bar, I hope I can inspire you where to start looking.  There are some stunning options out there to suit all tastes and budgets.

These outfits will also be ideal if you are on a cruise or in a hotel or holiday village, where you alternate between the beach and other activities throughout the day.

Marks and Spencer have some incredible deals with all of their beach wear, and one I spotted is the Pure Cotton Striped Beach vest Top and Trousers set at only £22.50

Monsoon have a gorgeous Gemima Print Jersey Dress at £70.  This will also be useful to wear around the house at home, as the print is timeless and it is comfortable to wear even for dinner parties when you get back.

V by Very have a great wide leg Beach Jersey Jumpsuit at £30, which I adore as I am into wearing black this Summer, as it looks cool and chic, and this particular garment is worn with ease.  You can fold it up and put it in your beach basket too and it will still come out looking good.

Warehouse Panel Maxi Dress in Ivory at £90 is another adaptable dress for Summer, as it is perfect for casual day or dressed up as more glamorous evening wear.

Simply Beach have a gorgeous Watercult Beach Kaftan in Pink Sand at £119.00 but they do have offers of discounts all the time, so you may be lucky.  This is so adaptable and can even double up as a dressing gown.  Just love the simplicity of it.

Hope I have got your fashion taste buds flowing to consider how you can travel canny and still look a million dollars.

ONE GIRL’S GARBAGE IS ANOTHER ONE’S GOLD

ONE GIRL’S GARBAGE IS ANOTHER ONE’S GOLD

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

A second hand clothes shop in the mid-nineties, location – Primrose Hill, London.  A female, late twenties enthusiastically sorting through racks of pre-owned clothes, which have been immaculately cleaned and well ironed.  Her mother, a prim woman in her late fifties looking on with scornfully, silent and disapproving.  She suddenly bursts into dialogue with an accent resembling Hyacinth Bucket from the nineties TV show Keeping up Appearances, ‘can we please leave’ she spouts ‘this shop is making me feel quite sick’.

I am sure many of us have encountered the occasional Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced Bouquet) in our own lives, including the snobbish character within ourselves.  But as the majority of us are trying to do our bit to save the planet, the recycling of clothes is now becoming the norm, and in fact a respected way forward.

The past few years have seen the approval from celebrities and the wealthy who not only donate their garments to Charity Shops but also buy from them as well, just to keep the recycling circle going.  Also, as one famously said ‘one girl’s garbage is another one’s gold’.  This is often the case, and has happened time and time again with acquaintances who have boasted huge savings and acquisitions from their Charity Shop rummages.

My own mother Sylvia Anderson, a pioneer for women in television, who was one of the first women to make it to University from a working class family, because of her high level of intellect (but with very low funds), couldn’t afford to buy any new clothes.  But through her own ingenuity purchased a very high quality second hand tweed coat in London in the fifties – a garment she hung onto for years.  She adored the classic line and high quality of the material, even though she paid a fraction of its value.  So I was well rehearsed into recycling my clothes from an early age, as I remember her still wearing it when I was a child.

In fact moving on from this legacy, I was one of the pioneers of the home ‘clothes swap’ way back in the eighties when friends were encouraged to gather at each other’s houses, eat, drink and try on each of our pre-loved outfits.  Such fun, and often very fortuitous.

The environmental charity WRAP states that £30bn of unworn clothing lies hanging in UK wardrobes, and 11m goes to landfill.   So now the World has caught up, and rather than hiding our second hand acquisitions under a bushel, we are now encouraged to recycle our wardrobes as often as possible and restock from the ever giving pile of clothes donated from enthusiastic givers like ourselves.  After all there is nothing more satisfying than a bargain, especially when you are also contributing to the planet we inhabit whilst making a killing – metaphorically of course!
