{lfw} Belstaff aw15 presents

london fashion week Belstaff aw15 presentation

Belstaff aw15 presentation

Sam Rollinson – planted on a pedestal, clutching a cocktail – Belstaff you did good.

Casual meets luxe is where I’ll be from now on. Oversized layers, lashings of leather, textures for the win.

 Pencil me in for a facial and find me a badass-leather-in-budget.

Effortless …nobody said it was easy.

Cinched waist, bundles-o-suede and a bag/tardis for treats. Yep fashion week in old smokey just happened. Bet you can’t wait to hear the gossip and peek at the good shots…

Bare-with whilst I catch my breath, collect my dog and do the big shop.

Never knowingly not keeping it real……ish.

I’m wearing vintage Hermes scarf, new-season Maje biker, new-season H&M skirt, last-season LK Bennett booties and a Celine trapeze tardis tote

{craving} ‘it’ bag

Fendi Peekaboo Mini

My latest consumer crush has landed, a tote with benefits.

Sturdy tote’s are clearly the best human invention since the wheel. And no surprise, I raced straight to the formula 1 Fendi aisle and demanded full throttle tantric tote-ing.

She’s a prize winning trophy tote. With an ‘it’ title to match.

Cost per wear I need to move into one of the internal pockets to get full value for money. But for now, let’s just enjoy the ride.

No excuse to arrive fashionably late, ever again.

{outfit} per-SUEDE-ed

There’s no skirting around the issue. 

Suede is badass right now.

From your basic blogger banging on about the 70’s to your hippy chick haute-footing it to fashion week, we’re officially on high and dry-clean only alert. Impractical buttery leather is bang on.

I’m easing in gently with this skirt. But next I’m after a coat.

Maybe a shoe.

I like an amex flirt.

{Ph. Pri Hopkins}

 Currently coveting a swedish-sack-du-jour, but alas… arm-perishing just isn’t a good look. All major e-commerce investments are on hold til summer.

Course, holy-grail purchases don’t count and this appeases my midi-dress cravings/sartorial savings.

Yep. This turtle-neck’ll do the trick.

{outfit} hi-lo halo



At the beginning of the year I made a commitment to

a. smile more and

b. spend less.


Easy peasy ish…

Wearing hashtag new Chanel slippers, hashtag even newer Roc Eyewear sunnies and tempering my guilt with a hashtag fifteen quid *fedorable, found lurking at the holygrail H&M.

{craving) valentine-ing

valentines day outfit


Valentines Day ready? If you’re dancing around scarlet lace twin-sets, gold plated love charms and shed loads of suck-you-in lbd’s, you’re just not doing it right.

I speak with corset training disasters, with a drawer full of tag-still-on experience. Tragic.

Nope this year I’m buying stuff I actually want.

So without further ado, I took the crash course in Studio 54 then whipped up a wish-list Bianca Jagger would approve.

And this aint no pictorial pic n mix. I’ll take the lot.

Mr. Luxe knows I like to look haute!!!
