How to pack, and what to pack this summer holiday.

Posted on 16 July 2015

Throughout the summer season when I’m shopping with my clients I am often asked for advice on what are wise purchases for holiday as well as packing advice.
It’s not rocket science to get right, but so often we make it harder for ourselves.

Dress code Dilemmas

Dress code Dilemmas

Posted on 4 May 2015

I have 4 weddings to go to this year, last year there were 6! Each one with a different (sometimes cryptic) dress code: ‘1920’s Formal’, ‘Christmas Sparkle’, ‘Garden Party Barn Dance’… 

As a personal shopper I am often asked to help decipher these dress codes for my clients and to find them the best outfit for their brief and budget.
If you find yourself with a dress code as unique as one of the ones mentioned above you have either two options: call the bride and ask her to explain (a safe bet), or be brave and wear what you want and hope it’s appropriate. It is a guarantee that everyone will interpret such dress codes differently and there’ll be a comical array of interpretations on the day; but as long as you’ve given it some thought and showed some respect to the occasion you can’t really go wrong!
I have selected a few of the more common dress codes you’re likely to come across and broken down the possibilities of what you can wear:

There is so much hype around fashion exhibitions at the moment, Alexander McQueen’s retrospective at London’s V&A Museum has taken the nation by storm selling over 300k tickets in advance sales and if rumours come true it is likely the exhibition will be extended further than the scheduled close date.

It's totally normal to have a sense of déjà vu at a Saint Laurent show, everything shown is a super skinny once worn vintage rip off.
