My SAVVY winter

Having spent part of my formative years in a warmer climate, readjusting to winter took a long time indeed. I was constantly cold, even though I wrapped myself up like the Michelin man, and perceptually had frozen  hands and feet! I was one of those you shook hands with, and said, “wow, your hands are cold”! I suppose having a slight build, meant I had less body fat to keep me warm, but the layers I tried to…

Brace Knuckle

I went along for the first time, to SCOOP at the Saatchi Gallery, and was honestly planning to breeze in and breeze out, one hour max! I thought…, 3 hours later however, and I was still in there! So many quirky Clothes, Jewellery, Shoes, perfumes, with a lot of designs for all over Europe and America………Anyway, I came across these ‘Hand Bangels’ – which I, hadn’t seen before and my first thought was ….’great idea, but probably…

Less is More…

  With the beautiful London weather not baiting, my quest to seek out a new pair of wellingtons accelerated to urgent. Having ruined half my shoes in the rain,  hoping the rain rain will go away, optimistic as I am, I have accepted that the rain will come for many more days and perhaps weeks? Months? hmmm. Anyway, my love for wellingtons – (Patterned ones)-  started about 12yrs ago, when a friend and I went to Barcelona.…

High Flyer

What can I say; I’ve got a fixation for shirts. Don’t possess that many, but wear them constantly. The one thing that frustrates me about most chick shirts however, is the floppy collar that I constantly have to adjust, apart from when I am buttoned all the way up. A new fashion friend of mine told me she had the same problem, so started dawning her boyfriend’s shirt instead. That’s one solution, but size matters. Well, I…

AN-THRO-PO-LOGIE

I like pronouncing An-thro-po-logie, in the same way an android would. I imagine myself with a microphone, saying it with a nasal voice. Anyway my visits An-thro-po-logie on Regent Street (and more recently, Kings Rd.) is always satisfactory. As well as taking in all the fab aesthetics, I look forward to the sale section (which is ongoing all year round) and one is never sure, what one will find. I have picked up some amazing bargains from…

Shu

On my many errands today, I popped into a shopping centre, to get my staple merino wool tights for M & S ( brown today, and last week a black pair – can do without them), opps apologies for digressing – walking along, I saw 2 sales assistants standing in the front of a shoe shop, appreciating the display in their window. So I looked too, and saw nada that really grabbed me, but found myself wondering…

Okay, let’s go shopping

Truth be told, I am not a fan of big labels. One just pays ridiculously high prices for brand i think. And why should one, when there are loads of smaller designers in London, creating amazing quirky and quality stuff and the same par, for a fraction of the price.Needless to say,  for years I have dodged the big labels, instead, indulging myself in little boutiques all around town.I’d heard of Dover Street near Green park Station…
