"Excess All Areas" Editorial shoot

I love excess so this shoot was such a joy to work on. It gave me the opportunity to play with colour, texture and layering. The look was centred around this amazing neon yellow Oscar De La Renta ostrich feathered top and the neon red eye liner I picked up on my travels. I love the clash against the models red hair, it shouldn't work but it does.

Get Ready For Fall Winter 2013-14


We must have had just five days of sun here in the UK and already the stores are in the process of finalising their Spring / Summer 2013 sales.....CRAZY!!!! Well at least it gives you the chance to bag a last minute bargain for the summer holiday you have been patiently waiting for all year.

I am not one for the sales, yes I do love a bargain as we all do but after the first couple of days the clothes don't look as appealing as they did when they were full price at the beginning of the season and all beautifully merchandised in a glossy store. One thing that stands out in my mind is the fabulous Victoria Beckham coat that caught my eye in Harrods but on close inspection every button had been hacked off by some pesky customer with scissors yet they were still charging £799.00??!!??

So now is the time to move on to the fabulous new season, if you don't snap up certain pieces now you will have no chance of these pieces gracing your closet by October when no doubt you will want to start wearing them.


Here is my pick of the best pieces for Fall Winter 2013-14 that are available to buy now and how I would personally style them. They are all classics which you will wear for years to come with heaps of potential to create many fabulous outfit options.


18 pieces and 4 fabulous outfits fit for the coming season.

Maison Chanel Rue Cambon, Paris

Whilst in Paris I stayed at the Hotel Castille and it was no coincidence that I chose this hotel as it is located directly next door to Maison Chanel on Rue Cambon.

The flagship Chanel store is located right next door to Coco Chanel's apartment which I would  loved to have visited, unfortunately this was not possible for a mere mortal like me... oh well, a girl can dream.

Lust Have | Maison Michel Fall 2012

This season top of my wish list is a Maison Michel trilby but I am still yet to decide which one to buy, however, I am swaying towards the 'Fara'. I have been lusting after one of these stylish headpieces for seasons and feel now is the right time to invest. These hats are ultra stylish and cool but what would one expect when Laetitia Crahay is the brands Artistic Director as well as Head of Accessories & Jewelry for Chanel, who also owns the Maison Michel brand.
