Styling a fellow Blogger

Being a freelance stylist means I’ve had privy to many  a wardrobe in Britain and abroad. I sieve through clients wardrobes, decluttering and giving them my humble advice. I say ‘giving’, because they are paying clients, who have asked for my advice on style and Fashion.  So when fellow fashion blogger Karen (N4mummy), called to suggest that we do a styling shoot from each others wardrobes, I thought hmmm…- great idea! but how do you style someone…

Frugal January…

It bothers me, when I take my old clothes to the dry cleaners for mending or slight alterations and get charged exorbitant prices! It sometimes defeats and frustrates  the whole point of slow Fashion. The incident that broke the camels back, occurred a few weeks ago, when I took my beautiful traditional deep purple Chinese dress (which I have owned for over 12 years) to my local dry cleaner. I asked for him to hem a few…

A Practical Christmas tree

Yes, I did put the tree up last Thursday, but what with managing my Christmas Pop up shop, running errands, and having a life, I am only just posting now. (Those of you who kindly read the last post would understand this statement). This year, I decided to go for Christmas decorations, that do more than just look pretty, because, come the 1st of January (or when ever it is, that you take your Christmas tree down)…

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…

Individual ME

Hooray!! LONDON FASHION WEEK kicked off and ended this week. It’s always exciting to see all the designs, colours, fabrics, textures and draw inspiration from them. However, I am of the school of thought, that with most things in Life,  one should be as individual as you can be (in an organic way). Of course, one is  inspired by everything that surrounds one, but I believe it should enhance one’s individuality, not cause one to conform. Needless…

Liberated collaborations

Whilst not a big fan of floral prints, over the years, I have come to have an appreciation for them . The reason being, this collaborating era that we find ourselves in, which allows different artistic worlds to collide, re-interpret floral prints and birth amazing masterpieces. How fun is it that Artists and photographers, are no longer confined to galleries, and private collections – , that Street-wear meets couture, that there is an alchemy of Architecture and…

SMart

Any thing that will speed up my beauty routine, and still give me glowing skin is always welcome in my world. I lead a busy life, and really don’t have time, especially in the morning for more than a 2 step facial regime. But Alas, I live in busy London city, and whilst I love it, I struggle with the Hard water, pollution levels, and finding time for alot of TLC. Herald in the new Smart Clarisonic! …

Bestivals

Each year the festivals come around, I watch them on television and I’m totally blown away by the music, stage performances and the atmosphere, wishing I was there. I  promise myself to book tickets for the following year. I call up a few friends making a path with them to go the following summer, to camp out for a few days under the English weather!, to have a wet wipe shower, endure the toilets, mud… and the…

Over at the Opera Awards

Back in April, I was fortunate enough to be invited to the International Opera Awards at the Savoy hotel in London. I had only ever experienced these kind of  events on television, however, I knew what the dress code was. Whilst I appreciated the beautiful couture and demi-couture dresses swanning around me, I was pleasantly surprised to find a few award winners breaking the mode. I particularly liked Es Devlin (winner of the set design awards) outfit.…
