Carboot meets Catwalk

Strolling around the carboot on a sunny Sunday morning, I felt like I had stepped into the 'Trend-watch' pages of an editorial or looking at garments that had been tossed from the Autumn/ Winter 2013-14 catwalks. Tartan and oversized coats galore!

Tartan number reminiscent of Stella and Dolce

I'm thinking with statement earrings and skinny jeans- or even fitted hot pants a la Dolce!

Coveting kilts, pleats and plaid
Either shortened and worn with classic black opaques, or kept in their magnificent midi state, these traditional Highland Kilts are bang on-trend...

Over-sized coat
My bargain of the day- or should I say century- was this over-sized black Wool coat with faux fur collar for 70p. I repeat; Seventy Pence!!

Stella McCartney

Ralph Lauren

Start as you mean to go on...

Addicted to the 80's

I am currently making some room in my wardrobe for Autumn purchases; meaning that me and my St John vintage 80s Cardigan/ Jacket are parting ways...

Obviously I wore it as a dress to satisfy my inner-Addicted to Love video-meets-Balmain-campaign lady

Raindrops on Roses...

Not only did we fully embrace our British Heritage by re-visiting the sights of London and strolling round parks and wondering down mews soaking in the buzz of one of the best cities in the world, this Summer... WE. SHOPPED.
Here's one of my favourite outfits; featuring my favourite Moschino gold earrings, black crop top, blazer, Leopard print skirt and obligatory Saint Laurent bag.

Moschino Cheap&Chic earrings £80.00 (considered buying another pair-just in case)

I did discover an identical pair in Forever 21 for around £2.50!
Extremely poor picture quality- 'Cool-Girl Hoop Studs'
Therefore, I may bulk buy, smother myself in them and create this catwalk dream!...

When browsing around The Shop At Bluebird; my skirt was put to shame by this pair of Phillip Lim Leather Leopard print trousers. I wanted to walk out with them on, there and then.

Lim has managed to make a delicious concoction of all my favourite things, Bravo Phillip. Bravo.

Family Fashion

From Camden to Cadogan, Sloane Square to Shoreditch, Primrose to Pimlico; there is always a place for Monochrome, Leopard and Gold!

Zebra Crossing

I battled through a potentially painful champagne hangover to attend car boots on a Sunny Sunday morning; which proved to be worth it after spotting this little number...

Monochrome piece 

Wore it to London shopping a couple of days later, teamed with Moschino-esque gold costume jewellery, ankle boots and my favourite Saint Laurent tote

Women think of all colours except the absence of colour. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.

Sunshine, champagne and Sequins...

Excuse me for being so stereotypically British, however, it's such a shame to not comment on (and photograph) the long stretch of beautiful weather that we have experienced in recent months. Not only did we make it through Glastonbury with the sun beating down, it continued throughout July, which included many Family Birthdays and friend's BBQs.

Naturally, I seized the opportunity to embrace my inner Greek Goddess; this included white, gold sequins, chignons, white nail varnish, orange Hermes loafers and, of course, a black feathered fan!

Sweat and Chic cannot co-exist

Donatella Does It Again

I'm a self-confessed Black&Gold whore, with a secret fetish for anything with a hint of 80's tack/ OTT, so I usually find myself drawn to Donatella and her Versace creations.
Having recently found this in a vintage store and rarely taken it off...

... I was delighted when I laid eyes on the cover of Style magazine. Medusa belts galore!

Just wanted to take a moment to pay homage to the glamour of the new Versus Versace J.W. Anderson Collection.


The omni-glamour, thigh-high splits, PVC and crop tops will forever hold a place in my heart- and my wardrobe.

California Dreaming

Haven't posted on here for a while as I have been living it up in California!

I was very much looking forward to going on the road trip, with my two best friends, thinking it would be a lifetime experience, see the Hollywood sign,  plastic fantastic locals and a Kardashian or two! But I never dreamt the overwhelming beauty that I would be surrounded by, instant contentment and a feel of homeliness- largely due to the extremely friendly people over there. A credit to their country!

We stayed on The Sunset Strip (opposite The Viper Room and Johnny Depp's house, next door to The Standard Hotel and around the corner from Chateau Marmont) a.k.a The Best Location EVER. Yet the most wonderful thing about it was that not once where we made to feel out of place or unworthy of being in such exclusive venues; meeting fascinating and friendly people each day. I could, and probably have, endlessly praise the beautiful beaches, gleaming streets, picturesque greenery, delicious and varied cuisine and fabulous fashion. Downtown L.A has an array of vintage clothing shops where I made some excellent purchases, including the perfect Levis denim skirt and lots of gold jewellery- for a change!

Although almost heartbroken to be leaving L.A, we were excited for the next leg of our trip; driving to San Francisco. The journey along the coast, through country vineyards and across mountainous terrains was breathtaking. Luckily we were able to take in the sights and enjoy the drive because of the calm fellow drivers, well-controlled road speeds and, of course, automatic driving! Even short stop offs in Santa Barbara, Monterey and San Luis Abispo were heartwarming and made us fall further in love with the US of A. (Palazzo Giuseppe in San Luis is a must for a delicious Italian...and the food's nice too!).

We entered San Fran on the stunning Golden Gate Bridge, seeing the skyline was like entering a mini New York, combined with the rows of darling coloured unique houses straight from Milk or Mrs Doubtfire. The city screams Fashion; stunning men in Sartorial-esque tailoring and Kennedy-worthy heads of hair, the women are creative yet classic and work layering like no others! Speak-easy bars with handsome 'tenders, the juxtaposed traditional trams with buzzing modern architecture and boutiques- then there's ALCATRAZ; it was certainly a contrast to LA but every bit as superb and welcoming.

 Delicious cocktails...

If you have even continued to read this far then you'll be glad to know that my Oscar-Acceptance-Speech-length post is coming to an end; it's not a case of me bragging about a trip but more that I feel I have to spread the word of how you can go to the glamour hub of the world, be welcomed and have the time of your life.

God Bless America!
