Building Block

I have long been a fan of Los Angeles brand Building Block. Their luxury leather accessories are a fine example of minimal design and functionality at it's best.

Claudia Bertini

Sunday, 27 September 2015

Really happy to have discovered the Zurich based designer Claudia Bertini a few months ago. Her ever growing collection of 'timeless clothes with a subtle blend of classic and contemporary appearance'
are the kind of pieces I would happily cram my wardrobe full with. And the good news is that her online shop launched last week so now available worldwide! Check it out for yourself here. Happy shopping...

Staying power

Wednesday, 5 August 2015

I will say I'm stuck in my ways when it comes to lipstick. Wearing a shade of red about 80% of the time and only ever trusting MAC due to their fantastic matt range which has such great staying power. But feel it's time to branch out and give another brand a go!

This NARS shade is the perfect bright red but the consistency is less matt that what I'm used to. In order to keep it lasting the day I find blotting it once and then applying a second layer of colour, followed by an application of Lipcote to seal works a treat.

Easy breezy

Sunday, 12 July 2015

While I wouldn't say I'm a frequent wearer of dresses, this summer I've been inspired. On a recent visit to Spring restaurant (which I would highly recommend) I witnessed a coterie of waitresses who calmly worked the room in coloured sack-like dresses (designed by Egg of Knightsbridge) teamed with white plimsoles. 

COS was obviously the first port of call on my search for a dress which fit the minimal, colour, cotton criteria. Having said that, it's my first port of call on most shopping missions. While there I picked up these gold disc earrings which haven't left my lobes since.
