Style Update: Gingham on gingham

posted on: Tuesday, 25 April 2017

While I will never trade in my double denim, not for all the money in the world, I am loving this new moment with double gingham. Gingham is having a moment, an epic moment. While I can remember wearing gingham pinafore dresses as a child, I would have never predicted it would be a part of my adult life. I'm pretty sure I used to paint over my gingham, thinking it was a canvas for colour as a four year old. Thirty three years later and look where we are now...

3 ways to style the perfect bar cart

Bar Cart Style
There's a trend sweeping the world. This is the home decor equivalent of fashion's embroidered top and it's everywhere. I'm speaking of the bar cart and it's getting updated as regularly as some people's wardrobes. Type "bar cart" into Pinterest and you'll be met with a plethora of picturesque interiors moments featuring everything from Christmas decor setups to cupcake corners, all with the beautiful bar cart acting as the lead in the scene. For months I've been looking everywhere for my perfect match, the perfect fit for my home decor goals. Last month Mr. Bar Cart, my dream cart, was found. It was love at first sight or site (since technically it was discovered online). 

Style Update: Everything to the max...and maxi!

Aw, the magic of wisteria hysteria. It's officially hit London and well, I'm taking advantage of it in photographs in an epic way. Get ready. I have a feeling this is only the beginning. It's also the continuation of my obsession with shirt dresses. I seem to be collecting them this season. Only I am not getting to wear them as often as I had imagined as the weather here in London can't make up its mind what it wants to do. Is it spring? Is it winter? Who knows. Each morning is a mystery. But that wisteria remains, so you won't find me complaining about it that much. Now, about that maxi dress...

Style Update: Shirt Dresses, Stripes and Sophisticated Pom Poms

posted on: Saturday, 22 April 2017

I feel like this summer should come with a style warning when it comes to FFG's posts. There is most definitely a theme evolving and it's more focused than any summer before that I can remember. True, dresses have always basically been THE season dress code. For 2017, however, the dresses seem to all be shirt dresses. There is a sophistication with a shirt dress that really takes things up a notch in the style meter. So I'm investing, in a big way. In fact, I already wrote a piece talking about 36 Shirt Dresses to buy this season and I'm adding one more to the bunch after a recent discover at Marina Rinaldi. This is the linen shirt dress of my dreams. It's simple, wears well, can be styled 1000 different ways and is such good quality I'm pretty sure I'll grow old with it being a seasonal favourite for decades to come. How's the for a glowing recommendation?
