Frocking Friday # 4: Rinse & Repeat

(Dress, ASOS; Shoes, Dune) Because I am a shameless outfit repeater, last weekend I wore this black ASOS dress again. (I also used my super-powers to turn the whole world black and white, except my shoes. Yes, I can do…

Friend Friday: Blogger Mechanics*

(*This title totally made me think of lots of little men in overalls running around inside my blog and going, “Well, we can fix it, love… but it’s going to cost you..”.) 1. What technology do you use in blogging?…

Attention all frockers!

Just a very quick post to let those of you who’re following me because of Frocking Friday/Dressember/dresses and fashion in general, that The Frockery, which is a fabulous source of online vintage, is running an eco fashion challenge this February,…

Sandra The Great

When we were on holiday in December, we had the greatest maid in all the land. Her name was Sandra, and I wanted to take her home with me. (OK, full disclosure: it turned out that her name wasn’t Sandra…

Frocking Friday # 3: McNautical

(Dress, George at Asda; cardigan, Miss Selfridge; belt, gifted; boots, Dorothy Perkins) Folks, I have a confession to make, and I’m just going to get it out of the way, so we can all move on with our lives. These…

Great job, Royal Fail…

Posted on November 16th, just turned up this morning, without so much as an “Oh, hey, sorry we’ve been holding your mail hostage for the past two months!” (And yes, it was posted in Canada, but as soon as it…

NOTD: Barry M nail paint in Bright Red

Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’re all, “Barry M, AGAIN? And MORE red nail polish? Does this chick even realise there are other brands and colours out there?” I do, I do, I promise. But I also don’t really…

Totally gratuitous photos of my new shoes

So, my Shoe Challenge ends next Wednesday (not that I’ve been counting down the days until it’s over, you understand…), but I’ve not exactly been making it easy on myself, because despite promising myself I wouldn’t buy any more shoes…

Review: Eyelure Naturalities False Eyelashes in 101

Over the holiday period, I tend to develop a bit on an over-reliance on false eyelashes. Well, I mean, if you can’t have totally ridiculous lashes at Christmas time, when can you? These are my current favourites: they’re from Eyelure’s ‘Naturalities’…

Pot Luck

It’s been a while since I last whined wrote about my old nemesis, the OMGSNOW, and that’s because, as luck would have it, we’ve been experiencing non-stop rain for the past week or so, which has washed all of the…

Review: Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Parfum

As my regular readers may recall, although I’ve admired the design of Marc Jacobs’ ‘Daisy’ for a while now, I hadn’t actually sampled what was inside, so when this gorgeous red bottle dropped through the door, courtesy of Coty, which…

  (Dress, BB Dakota; boots, Topshop) So, it’s the first ever Frocking Friday, which means the first of 52 dresses in 2011. Everyone up for it? I’m just going to pretend you all said “yes” to that. It’s OK, don’t…

Video: Tenerife 2010

  Well, 2011 has come in like a lion, which is a bit weird, really, because that’s supposed to be March’s job. I wonder what March will come in like now that January’s stolen its thunder? (Or its, er, lion,…
