Charlotte Ronson Platform Hiking Boots

I doubt I'll do any real hiking in these, they look pretty and clumpy, but they're a bitch to walk in. I'm trying to wear them in with thick socks but so far no luck.

The Kooples - Arrived in London

I get an awful lot of hits from people who arrived at my blog using The Kooples as the search term. 

Well, this is just to let you all know that finally The Kooples has arrived in the UK. Details are on their site here and listed below for your convenience...I will be checking them out very soon. 

I would show you a selection of their best clothes, but VERY annoyingly you can no longer access the French site so I can't show you individual pieces, only promotional pics and I hate not being able to select specific items but whole shop bought looks. I find this the epitome of frustrating, but moving swiftly along...

These are the London shops - the first three are open already, the St Christopher's Place branch will open on the 20th of December in time for last minute gifts and party outfits.

ASOS Palm Cuff

I can't say I've ever come across the concept of a palm cuff / ring before, but the second I saw it on ASOS I knew I had to have it. It's a bit uncomfortable at times, but I do like how unusual it is - a cross between a weapon of mass destruction and an item I could imagine Kate Lanphear slipping on to go to the shows. If you need a Lanphear fix may I recommend Fear Lanphear for hefty dose of images of the woman who rocks my world, oh yes indeedy.

Suno Print Trousers

All images from Opening Ceremony 

I'm not averse to a bit of colour in my wardrobe, which is probably why I am majorly lusting over these Suno pants from the Opening Ceremony sale. The zig zags with the clashing floral trim are a match made in loud trouser heaven. 

Pamela Love or ASOS?

Pamela Love jewellery is fabulous, but also pretty expensive. I try a piece on about once a month in Liberty but never end up buying it. Part of the reason I can't do it is that it is so trendy and instantly identifiable I worry about how dated it will look a few years down the line. Luckily for me ASOS stepped up once again with a decent approximation that more than replaces any Pamela Love shaped need in my life right now. ASOS is on fire right now, I just can't get enough...I love a British success story.

ASOS Anger and Angels - Shoe Picks

I love the navy and black suede combination of these wedge boots and the little turn down by the ankle. I've never understood why navy and black can't be combined - who invented that rule? Yup, the ASOS Anger lace up boot is lovely. 

This is more of an ugly beautiful boot, but it appeals to me nonetheless. The ASOS Angel wool ankle boot would look great with skinny jeans and is so Christmassy I want to wear them when I decorate my tree.

Name The Blogger - Help Please!

You know how it is...if like me you are voracious reader of blogs...you find a site you love, save some pics and then somehow it escapes your mind as a million other images and bloggers rush in. 

I've had these images for well over 18 months now, and I keep expecting to stumble across her blog once again and promptly bookmark it. It hasn't happened yet. If you know who it is I would really appreciate it. Thanks x 


Well, they're H&M, obviously. Because a) the Nicholas Kirkwood pair would set me back £1030 and b) if I'm going to buy 'zany' shoes you can bet your bottom dollar they'll be cheap. I can't really see the point in flashing the cash if what you're buying won't date well (like my Helmut Lang skirt yesterday, or the Tods I bought in college that I still wear). Still, for under £25 I can play around with colour, as there is something perversely attractive a shoe that has so much going on all over the place. I still can't figure out if they are ugly beautiful or just plain ugly. Or if I even care when there's so much to look at. 

What do you think of the, er, 'tribute' shoe? Are the too cheap for words? Could you ever stomach spending over a grand on the real ones pictured below?

The real deal from Selfridges.

Helmut Lang Skirt

I bought this skirt when I was 17 or 18 in the Liberty sale with my Christmas money (you know that age when all you want is cold hard cash so the relatives don't go buying you questionable 'fashion' items). I'm amazed that a) it still fits and b) it's still in such good nick considering the many outings it has had over the years. Yup, this skirt is OLDER than Tavi. My god, that's scary, I need a lie down.

Love my Chanel chain belt (Heathrow T3 branch, best sale stock of all Chanel stores in my opinion). Still to this day slightly confused about the presence of both Christmas items (holly, mistletoe) and the Easter bunny on the chain, but whatever, gives me more opportunities to wear it.

I can see the future, the future is hungover

Wowza. Nothing like a set of pictures to make you realise a) you need to go to the gym, b) you need to drink much less booze and c) eyeliner can make you appear more human. I look like the walking dead in these pics. Sorry for scaring you all. The last few weeks have been quite heavy, sadly the next few weeks run up to Christmas. When will my liver / life get a rest? Sadly the most replied to sentence in my life is "Should we have another?" And my answer is always a resounding "YES".

Wool Saves The Day

Growing up in the UK my childhood was littered with the phrase "Well put on an extra jumper" every winter. Rarely was an opportunity used to put the heating up when there were still clothes to be layered. The popular refrain from my Mum was always one that extolled the virtues of wool (she held a real disdain for jersey because it did not adequately perform the functions of a proper jumper). She was right, of course. The best thing about these sweat pants is that they are in fact made of wool, which makes them extra special cosy and appropriate for winter weekends when you want to remain warm.
