Style Update: Whistles for Mulberry

posted on: Sunday, 19 April 2015

A trip to the LA Observatory requires a rather sophisticated ensemble, right? Well, I thought I'd give my inner spy an outing and I took on the terrific trench for a look fitting for an LA landscape in the background. The end result was a lot of people looking at me as if I was going to whip out a badge at any moment. 

Style Update: Totally for talls...entirely in love with this brand collaboration...

Aw, another day in LA. Another day filled with beautiful light and fabulous heat. While this week in LA is mostly about grabbing sun, there are also a few meet and greets on the books. So, what does one wear for a fashionable meeting in the city of Angels? Well, I took a chance on a more sophisticated combination. White blazer, chambray shirt and a striking silver skirt, why not? I was very happy with the result indeed and ready to look like a power player on the LA scene. Am I convincing? I feel as if this is the 2015 version of Miami Vice. Don Johnson, I'm coming for you.

Dogs Trust Friday: Lucy the Lurcher

posted on: Friday, 17 April 2015

Today, I'd like to introduce you to Lucy the Lurcher. I've nicknamed her Lady Lucy as she's truly a graceful creature. When we played she bounded around the room like a ballerina and I have the pictures to prove it - see below. Needless to say, Lady Lucy has a great deal of energy and she's looking for a family that can keep her on her toes. I've been told that Lucy does well with children and lots of cuddles. Honestly, what more do you need? It doesn't hurt that she's easy on the eyes and perfectly polite with all humans. She stole my heart, and now needs a proper home. Do you have room for Lady Lucy in your home and heart? 

Style Update: The many faces of outlet shopping

posted on: Thursday, 16 April 2015

So, herewith you'll find the many faces of outlet shopping. Well, the many faces that I make in wearing my bargain buys. Yes, it's a favorite activity of mine. I'm a bargain miner. I can't help myself. From birth, I have been in search of the best bargain in existence. It's a neverending job and one that I take very seriously. 

Style Update: Wrapping it up for my first night in Los Angeles

posted on: Wednesday, 15 April 2015

I do find that I'm discovering some rather nifty nabs on the British high street these days. It's all about taking a chance on a brand, walking through the front door and spending some time sifting through the racks. Take the above ensemble for example - all from Wallis. This wrap dress, while somewhat shorter than it should be on my 6'2 frame, is just as good as its designer counterpart. Only this beauty is about £200 less. Yeah, pretty nifty. And those gorgeous jelly hybrid heels, the bag and the bracelets are all from Wallis too.
