I have recently started crushing on longline bras. I bought my first longline bralette bra from Boux Avenue a few weeks ago and it's already by go-to bra. I am so glad that these have "come back into fashion", as they remind me of the glamourous corsetry and lingerie of vintage years gone by.
I point your attention to that word deliberately in case you think I have actually turned into a 50s housewife. For the record, I do not think we should go back to an obligation to Read more [...]
I was recently granted the opportunity to see three collections designed by Angelys Balek in the same exhibition space.
As a countryside girl who dreamt – and continues to dream – fantastical thoughts, I felt an instant connection with Angelys’ designs.
Seeing the collections from Spring/Summer 2013, Autumn/Winter 2013 and Spring/Summer 2014 together granted me the opportunity to see the story that runs on through each season. The collections showcased included dreamy forests and sleepy Read more [...]
With a name like Vintage Tea Roses, it was only a matter of time before I threw in a vintage rose inspired wedding scheme! Appearing at my favourite time of year and featuring most of my go-to colours, this wedding inspiration theme is close to what I imagine my own wedding might look like in the far flung future! For that reason, I really hope that you enjoy this one!

Having just watched the latest instalment of Once Upon a Time which featued Ariel (yes, yes, I know you're judging me, but it's brilliant!) the latest post from Fashion Foie Gras on the 2013 Magic & Sparkle ad caught my beady eye!
First used in 2001, M&S have really revived their Christmas strap-line 'Magical & Sparkle' with this year's advert. From Aladdin to the Wizard of Oz, M&S guide you through a spectacular fairytale montage for their latest Magic & Sparkle surprise.
So, Read more [...]
The Victoria and Albert Museum (aka the V&A) is by far my favourite museum in London. With an impressive permanent collection of statues and artefacts spanning eras from all over the world, it stands in competition with the much loved and well-known National History Museum.
While the V&A often plays host to interesting limited exhibitions, the permanent fashion history exhibition space is the part of the museum I and – I am willing to bet – you could spend hours exploring! So, Read more [...]
On Monday I had the pleasure of attending the Next Blogger Network workshop organised by Next and Jam and hosted by The Hoxton Hotel in the trendy London district of Shoreditch.
Discarding the storm warnings for London, I rose bright and early to make my way to the event and was pleasantly surprised to see clear blue skies out of my window. After braving the dreaded tube (which I try to avoid at all costs), I arrived at Old Street tube station in Shoreditch to meet fellow bloggers, Sophie from Read more [...]
Quite recently, I curled up with some friends to watch the film adaptation of The Woman in Black. I’m not especially good with horror films and so, before hitting play, I reassured myself that I was with my boyfriend, that I know the story having seen the play (which scared me witless) and that the nice chap off Harry Potter was in it. So, there was nothing to be afraid of, right? Predictably, I did not sleep that night.
So, scary films are a no go for me this Halloween. But, because I don’t Read more [...]
All Hallows' Eve is almost upon us. Tonight or tomorrow, we'll be carving our pumpkins and waiting for darkness to fall before setting out for themed work socials, parties with friends or a bit of trick-or-treating. I have seen so many fabulous beauty and fashion tips for this ghostly day of remembrance that I thought I would take a different approach to nostalgia and the popular pumpkin. Without further ado, I offer the first of my nostalgic, vintage fairytale inspired wedding themes - Cinderella!
