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. I’m so short-sighted now that, much to my horror, I was told at my last optician’s appointment that I now qualify [...]

Some of you may know that Katie has been one of my assistants on LLG during her years at LCF. She helps out at London Fashion Week, and covers when my EA is away. We met when she was volunteering for OXFAM and was my model for the day on this project (that’s her on the [...]

Royal Ascot 2014: Hats, Hats & More Hats

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.

The Daily Beauty: Diptyque’s Rosa Mundi Candle & Hand Cream

February 20, 2014 Accessories

In the middle of this revolting, and particularly English, version of a Narnia winter – endless rain instead of eternal snow, the gentle scent of roses reminds me that summer, however elusive just now, will return. I’ve been burning this pretty new Rosa Mundi candle from Diptyque in my bedroom, which looks just as lovely as [...]

Style: Crumpet Cashmere Biker Jacket & a Dachshund Print Umbrella!

September 24, 2013 Accessories

Well, I think a sausage print umbrella is stylish, but I do realise that this may well be a minority view. But I don’t think there would be any dissension over the Crumpet Biker Jacket that I am also wearing here. I think it is the perfect summer-autumn transitional piece, for when the days aren’t [...]

Accessories: Toga Pulla Buckle Boots

September 20, 2013 Accessories

I have been thinking about these boots far more than is good for someone who had a life and a business to run. It’s not often that I decide I simply MUST have something: I’m not a logo lover, or an aspirational shopper; I just like what I like. But there is something about these [...]

Accessories: The PLIA Reid courier satchel in Queen Street

August 2, 2013 Accessories

I love this Whistles dress that I am wearing here at Nice Airport so much that I have it in two colourways. It’s the Adrienne Ink Pot Dress (£110), and it was part of my shopping haul of four dresses that I wrote about here. But most, importantly, I am carrying my new PLIA Reid courier satchel.
