The Launch of the OMEGA De Ville Butterfly watch in Seoul, South Korea

October 14, 2014 Accessories

If you’re flying in media, influencers, VIPS, retailers, the odd pop star and, oh, Nicole Kidman to South Korea from all corners of the world to launch a beautiful new watch, then that event is probably going to be more on the spectacular side than the quotidian.

My new glasses by Ralph Lauren at Vision Express

August 18, 2014 Accessories

I’ve been myopic since I was a very little girl. My first pair of spectacles arrived well before my tenth birthday, and I was wearing gas permeable contact lenses by the age of fourteen.

May 28, 2014 Accessories

(Me, in a Rosie Olivia creation.) Royal Ascot is, of course, a race meeting, but it’s also, hands down, the most stylish race meeting in the United Kingdom. There are rules about what – and what not to wear, but they really aren’t that complicated. (If you are feeling confused, there’s a lovely short style […]

Travel: Excellent Lightweight Luggage from Tumi, Marks & Spencer, & Plia Designs

March 26, 2014 Accessories

After years of lugging around terrible bags, bought from street vendors, and those sell-everything stores on 14th Street, I am now the very happy possessor of proper, streamlined luggage – cases that don’t ping open when thrown around by baggage handlers, or duffels that tear when or l throw them down the five floors of […]

Accessories: Stow London’s Hester small travel jewellery box

March 7, 2014 Accessories

Frequent travellers  learn to pare down the clothes they pack, because it’s extremely unlikely that they will wear even half of what they take along with them. The same with accessories and jewellery, which is why I rather love this small travelling jewellery case, in excellent quality leather, from new-ish design house  Stow London.
