Style: Excellent Dressing Gowns, Wraps & Pyjama Sets

July 31, 2015 LLG Fashion

  At the end of April I had an operation, and was in bed for nearly three weeks afterwards. Two days before I was due to go into hospital I realised that I possessed absolutely no dressing gowns or pyjamas. Some frantic internet searching later, and I discovered that both John Lewis and Marks & Spencer’s […]

Home: Buying a Household Clothes Steamer (the Kenley)

July 28, 2015 LLG Fashion

(My new dress from Moschino, via The Outnet, and beautifully de-creased by my new steamer.) Can a steamer change your life? Obviously not, but it can make it a damn sight easier. I’ve used the pro versions of these for years on delicate fabrics and clothes that can’t be pressed on an ironing board: all good […]

Topshop Launches The Archive Collection – Iconic Topshop Styles Return To Store!

July 16, 2015 LLG Fashion

When TOPSHOP US got in touch to ask if I’d like to style a piece from the new TOPSHOP Archive collection I was SO in. I grew up with TOPSHOP – Saturday mornings in Ashford, where I went to school, were spent trying on clothes we could never in a million years hope to afford with […]

A moment of serendipity – realising that Central Saint Martins was a ten minute walk from her law practice, allowed her to enroll in courses at the college and indulge her love of design as well as develop her understanding of the […]
