After my Drizzle post I have to tell you that I FOUND A MACRAINCOATJACKETPARKA thing! I knew the minute I posted that I couldn’t find anything I would and it would appear that the shopping gods heard my prayers… It’s a dark olive parka come coat from French Connection. Now these pics aren’t great. For a…

Drizzle 

Recently I set about looking for a coat/jacket for Autumn. Something that would be light enough to wear in milder weather but would also stand up to a bit of drizzle.  Don’t say trench. I’ve always wanted a sexy Burberry-esque trench but they weren’t designed for the top heavy amongst us.   We all know…

Alice Temperley

I love this dress.  It’s Somerset by Alice Temperley (John Lewis). If you have a figure like Keira Knightley, all willowy and long limbed, or if you are in fact the actual Keira Knightley, you’d look FABULOUS in this dress.  I have always longed to have that kind of ballerina-type figure. This dress would make me…

Tote

I just impulse bought a new bag. I had a tote I loved for years but then it started falling apart (a familiar story) so I started using jute or canvas shopper bags for every day stuff.  I’ve just started working again and a canvas shopper isn’t great for work as it’s unstructured and open…

Petit Bateau

No Cleavage Dress

I don’t usually blog about fashion as I know I’m the world’s most boring woman when it comes to clothes. I don’t go on girlie shopping sprees. I don’t have a Jimmy Choo obsession. I don’t particularly care what’s on trend… on point?… See! I don’t even know the correct phrasing.  But I saw this…

Pom Pom

Pom poms are in. Ask anyone. This Winter they can be found on everything from hats and bags to cushions and scarves, even keyrings! I just bought myself a pair of pom pom ballerina slippers from trusty Boden. I have Hobbit feet so I ordered a size up for fear they’d be too tight but they just fell off…
