Electric blue

Best Suit Ever


I spotted the oh-so-eclectic Shail Upadya outside the Lincoln Centre at New York Fashion Week. The former UN diplomat, turned stylist from Nepal, is well known for his array of brilliantly bonkers suits. You may recognise him from the film ‘Bill Cunningham New York’ in which he was featured for his amazing style. This suit, an homage to John Lennon, is so good it even has matching neon trainers!

All things orange

Glowing hot scarf, hair and lips in Paris outside the Dior show

Inspired by my lunch time carrot salad, I’ve dedicated a post on the subject of all things orange! Here are some of my favourite looks from Milan and Paris Fashion Week.

Furry, fiery gilet in Milan outside the Dolce & Gabanna show

Tangerine shades and buttons in Milan make a bold statement

Skater skirt at Paris FW

A gorgeous wrap around jacket perfect for Autumn or Spring, modelled in Milan outside the Dolce & Gabanna show. I just love her hair too!

Sister sister

Sephora and Ruth certainly know how to stand out while splashing about in the rain. The girls are sunny delights in their matching yellow raincoats, satchels and trainers. It seems to be sibling season as this is the second pair of sisters I’ve seen in the last 2 weeks wearing matching outfits. What a treat! Check out the wonderful Louise and Kay.

The girls wear raincoats from Petite Bateau, bags from the Cambridge Satchel Company and Nike trainers.


Something tells me French quite likes Adidas… His 90’s inspired look is made up of vintage Adidas trackie bottoms, Adidas trainers, hat and bag and jacket from Blitz vintage.

April in May

April’s rainbow of accessories brightens up the dullest of days. I absolutely love her techni-coloured fringed scarf. It’s an amazing piece to jazz up a neutral garment such as her grey cardigan.

She wears rainbow fringed scarf from Urban Outfitters, t-shirt from New Look, Primark skirt, Juicy Couture cardigan, bag and belt from China and headphones by Urban Ears. She customised her boots herself by cutting up a pair of old cowboy boots and adding glitter to the toes.

The Pearly King of Mile End

I discovered John Scott in Spitalfields market on Monday. He’s the Pearly King of Mile End and raises money for charity through appearances and various fund raising events. John lovingly hand sewed hundreds of pearly buttons to his suit, hat and waistcoat to make his incredible outfit. What a legend!



Carolin looks adorable in her Jackie O-esque candy coat. She wears skirt from Beyond Retro, shirt from Miss Selfridge, vintage polka dot shirt (worn underneath other shirt), coat from Pop Boutique, vintage gloves, bag from Absolute Vintage, vintage hat and shoes from Absolute Vintage.

Mr Chocolatier

Michael Lowe is the head chocolatier at Paul A Young in Soho. Best. Job. Ever. Not only does he have the job of dreams, he also has a rather impressive beard. If I could grow a beard, I’d want one like this.

Michael wears a vintage jacket from Portobello Road, Loreak Mendien shirt from Australia, vintage shirt (worn over other shirt), vintage glasses, Grenson shoes, and the hat was a gift.
