Rock a leopard print bag

leave a comment »


A long standing fan of leopard print accessories come day or night – belts, hair bands and ballet pumps spring to mind. I am more than happy to add a leopard print bag to the equation (but strictly only one leopard print item per outfit please.  Scary spice we are not).

Three pieces. One great outfit.

This week, sport luxe meets feminine pastels.  Toughen up the girly clothes with these superb Hudson black ankle boots and a messy top knot. Throw over a leather or denim jacket for a real rock edge.

Chateau De Gateau & My new found love of cake decorating

with 2 comments


Quick non fashion related post. I have recently started a Cake Decorating course and am now absolutely obsessed. I’ve always loved baking but wanted to learn how to make my cakes look and taste more professional and also get to grips with intricate decoration.

Chateau De Gateau – http://chateaudegateau.wordpress.com/ shows some of my creations so far.  Just the beginnings at the moment but hopefully I’ll be a piping wizard in no time.

Thanks for looking

Alexa Chung for Madewell

leave a comment »


I am aware this blog is becoming little more than a glorified Alexa Chung fan club. An outlet for my obsession if you will, however, do bear with me.  There is a point to it.

Alexa Chung’s first collection for Madewell hits the US in August.  Much to my despair we won’t be seeing any of the collection in UK stores.  I’ve done a little hunting though and US website Shopbop.com deliver worldwide within 3 days and stock the Madewell label.  Lets hope they put some of this wonderful collection online….

Key pieces: Striped Dungaree dress, velvet shorts, extra long cardigans, peter pan collars and socks with everything.

Spot The Difference – Peacocks do Mulberry Alexa Bag

leave a comment »


They’ve done it again.  After much success with their sell-out copy of the Chloe ‘Louise’ satchel in March, Peacocks have now had a go at the Mulberry Alexa.  I have to say it’s not bad for £14.

Peacocks version of the Chloe sold out in 48 hours so better get your skates on. Out 1st July. 

Original Mulberry Alexa £695.00 Net-A-Porter

Peacocks take on the Alexa £14
