Little Liffner

Thursday, 28 August 2014

So pleased to have just discovered Little Liffner. A brand dedicated to creating beautiful bags, handmade in Italy. And without the enormous price tag that seems to be so commonplace right now.

Having had a good window shop on their website, my pick from the Fall Winter collection is this beauty - 'Wildcat'. Made from calf's leather and black Italian shearling, it's the perfect bag to accompany me through the colder months. It even has a detachable shoulder strap allowing it to double up as a clutch for the evening. It's not just this particular style that boasts such versatility. Little Liffner is a modular concept with optional add-ons which enable you to update and personalise your bag over time. 

Take a look at more of the gorgeous styles here. Which one is your favourite?

After Party

Tuesday, 26 August 2014

Since clocking this gorgeous collection of pyjamas and pillowcases by new label After Party, my sleepwear standards have been raised. Historically preferring a classic cotton combo when it comes to pj's, I'm now decidedly hooked on acquiring a silk set.

Classic styles in luxurious silk, adorned with modern abstract patterns, these pieces are sure to up the style stakes in any boudoir, but why leave it there? With the pyjama trend still lingering, I'd happy team with heels and a clutch for a girls night out.

The collection launches this autumn and will be available on the After Party website along with a curated mix of homeware pieces.

Mulberry at Large

Wednesday, 13 August 2014

In all honesty I'm not much of a festival goer. My experience at Glastonbury '97 was enough to put me off festivals for good, but when I was asked by Mulberry to be their 'Mulberry at Large' during this years Wilderness festival I had to respond with a big fat yes. 

While Cara Delevinge hosted a Mulberry picnic inside the Walled Garden of Lord and Lady Rotherwick's Cornbury Estate, my job was to hunt out the most fashionable festival goers and style them with one of 6 beautiful red Mulberry bags. As you can see, it wasn't a difficult job. There were plenty of gorgeous ladies wearing some fabulous ensembles, who were more than happy to pose for the camera with their choice of bag. 

Between style shots I was able to get stuck into some hands on creativity at the Mulberry Loves Craft tent. Beautifully decorated with gold heart and handbag shaped branded balloons amidst stacked hay bale seating, it was filled with tables equipped with all the tools necessary to create your very own Mulberry leather cuff. You could even personalise by hand stamping your initials or choice of cute little symbols. What a treat!

As for my fear of festivals, I think the Wilderness experience has cured me. The chilled family vibe, friendly atmosphere, and beautiful setting of the Oxfordshire Cotswold countryside was enough to convince me that not every festival has to be a mud soaked catastrophe. Plus the sun made a lengthy appearance which makes all the difference.

Holiday ready

Wednesday, 16 July 2014

Ever since booking the flights for our holiday I've been planning outfits. Travel outfit, beach outfits, going out outfits and even the post-shower-chilling-before-going-out outfit. Obviously lots of items needed for these ensembles, not least the all important accessories. A couple of which are these 'Mizaru' sunglasses by THE coolest eyewear brand around - ZANZAN. So excited to finally own a pair. Also coming away with me is the perfect packable beach headwear - a woven visor. Everyone should own one. 

Sunglasses: by ZANZAN at Nola Boutique
Visor: Wolf and Gypsy Vintage

Last weekend I saw someone in the street wearing this matching top and shorts. All I could think was "I need that outfit". Imagine my joy when I found them both on the Topshop website, and in sale! But alas, neither in my size... Some things just aren't meant to be. Although I'm searching high and low for an equivalent - any pointers?

Summer hair inspiration

Tuesday, 24 June 2014

I haven't worn my hair half up since primary school so it's felt a bit weird trying this look out. That said, there's no denying this is a cool way to go with the locks this summer so I'll persevere!
