Totême Scarf Jacket review
As someone with very little self-control, and a lot of love for this particular piece, I let an uncharacteristically long amount of time pass before I bought the Totême scarf jacket. However, it never seemed that our paths would cross. When the jacket first appeared last year, life was expensive and I couldn’t justify it.…
Chloé Noua Boots
Chelsea boots are a fashion classic that spark much nostalgia in me. I grew up in the countryside and, when it wasn’t so muddy that wellies were required, I worked my way through several pairs of Chelsea boots, traipsing through fields and traversing cobbled streets. Though I’m an adopted city girl these days, my love…
What I bought: New bits from SIR and Theory
SIR’s Lilian open-back dress can be filed under the category of pieces that I order during the hottest weeks of the year but don’t get much wear out of because, once they arrive, the temperature drops. Whenever the heat hits the 30-degree mark, though, I’ve been loving this dress. It’s 70% linen and 30% silk,…
The Loewe Mini Gate Dual Bag
So, mini bags. In principle, I love the cuteness of their pint-sized proportions. In practice, as an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink kind of person when it comes to packing, they’re not for me. But practicality is, often, also not for me – so I ordered Loewe’s Mini Gate Dual bag from Matches.
Quite the departure from the 99p Cadbury affairs I’m used to, the Diptyque advent calendar is majestically presented as a “cabinet of curiosities”. The packaging alone, featuring gilded swirls on its expanding winged sides, is an object d’art and part of what you pay for – along with the brand name and the 25 treats…
The Loewe Puzzle Craft Small Bag
This isn’t a popular opinion (among Fashion People), but a lot of the most hyped designer bags don’t seem worth it. They feel too light and flimsy, and a lot like you’re paying solely for the exaggerated hardware or other branding. At the risk of sounding even more like my mum, there’s also the trend…
On not getting out of my comfort zone
There was a dark period in the summer where ~70% of my day job involved coming up with new angles for stay-at-home fashion copy. This evolved into work-from-home fashion copy – in which the concept of wearing statement earrings on Zoom was considered a novelty for longer than necessary – and then into the most…
Equal parts pretty and practical
High fashion, where I’m from, is all Barbour jackets, Hunter wellies and gilets. Thank god for Vogue subscriptions.
