Treasure Of The Day – 14th September 2014

New affordable brand of the moment are Self-Portrait, loved by fashion editors and fashion-conscious civilians alike. Their duck blue aran turtleneck jumper (bottom left) and signature navy sweatshirt are my favourite, easy-to-wear statement pieces from their AW14 arrivals.

Blog Of The Day – 28th August 2014

Fashion Me Now was an accidental discovery last week, and I have been addicted to its outfit posts and travel photography ever since. It is run my former fashion and beauty editor Lucy Williams whose personal style is effortlessly bohemian-luxe. Follow her on Twitter here.

Treasure Of The Day – 27th August 2014

                           

My shoe obsession of the moment are Senso, an Australian brand. Their SS14/ AW14 collections are littered with directional, edgy offerings that provide a new take on classic footwear, like these leopard-print sliders (bottom left) and pony block-heeled ankle boots (bottom right).

I love this chic little blog by a fashion and craft stylist from Battersea in London.
