UPCYCLED COLLECTIONS @ London Fashion week

The Indian summer, combined with everything from Open house, London Fashion week (LFW), Thames festival, London design festival, (with it’s ever growing number of districts) Theatre, Arts, and the abundance of free events, makes September my favourite month of the year. I dare say, this plethora of events constantly lays bear my sometimes indecisive side, causing me to dip my toes here , there, everywhere, and never fully immersing myself. I often need something to focus my schedule around this…

It’s fair to say that Mexican wave, has nothing on the South Korean Hallyu that’s been sweeping the world for the last decade. ‘Hallyu’ which means ‘wave’ in South Korean has brought a long awaited exhibition to the Victorian & Albeit museum , and I felt privileged to attend the press preview. This first exhibition of its kind, celebrates the colourful and dynamic popular culture of South Korea, following its early origins to its place on the global stage today.  …

Fast Fashion brands can actually help us become more SUSTAINABLE!

My daughter started secondary school , just as the second lockdown came into force, and moved from mufti to uniform.  Who knew you really had to purchase the uniforms months in advance, or face the dreaded uniform queue! Which, could stretch back a mile, and that you might have to visit more than one of the few designated uniform shops to get the full ensemble, as last minute ‘buying on line’ was not an option due to demand! Mission accomplished…

I really just went along for the Swedish buns, BUT THEN….

BUT THEN….I discovered the brand ‘A days March’ This is the honest truth – a few months ago, I was invited along to an event called ‘a Fika’ which essentially is Scandinavian word for ‘hanging out’ but with good coffee and yummy cakes, but more importantly, to be introduced to a fashion label . I must admit, I wasn’t that interested in the label, but thought, oh great, swedish buns! I’m game or should I say, it was a good bait….…

Not a perfume connoisseur, but If I may..

Realising a bottle of perfume that I was gifted for a birthday, Christmas or through press is always a dilemma, when the end might be nigh. I start to wonder if I should buy another bottle of the same, go through a few of my mini samples for a while, or embark on the relentless journey to find a new replacement. Perfumes are quite personal, and in instances where the giver hits the right notes, I find myself using it…

As a city dweller, I find myself constantly trying to keep up with the maintenance of my few possessions in an attempt to keep cost down.  Visits to the mechanic, repairs here and there in my flat, keeping the unruly garden in shape and a host of other things. I guess like everything I possess, my wardrobe actually goes through a lot of wear and tear, and considering the fact that I wear my clothes to death!, subconsciously I must…

Cool ‘n’ The BAG

Many of you , who kindly read my post , would know that I favour a tote bag over a handbag, and have over a hundred of them. They are cheap enough, come in a plethora of prints as well as sizes, and afford me the indulgence of swapping bags from day to day. I often find a lot of hand bags, either over embellished, or with a brand name screaming at me, and to carry this on a day…

The Metamorphosis of a good old book …..

I started reading a book over the weekend, the first in over a year! I’d been thinking about reading a good book for a long while now, but since driving came on the scene, reading for pleasure became insurmountable! Last week, whilst talking to my neighbour,who has a big library, I mentioned the need  to sink my teeth into a good book – she instantly produced a fat softback, which I  haven’t been able to put down since. Prior to that,…

How I Rock bridesmaid dresses post weddings!

I remember being a flower girl at many a wedding, whilst still a child. The dresses were always picked I now presume, by the bride, and were usually white, creamy, or floral. Being a child, I just enjoyed the moments, attention, and the awww, ‘so cute ‘ comments, that my twin and I attracted. Needless to say, I was unaware of how much it cost to have us both kitted out for the weddings, or what would happen to the clothes…
