Blue



















Location:
The Berkeley, Knightsbridge, London

Style:
Studio 4 London cobalt blue mohair and wool kimono coat: style and steal
T by Alexander Wang black jersey dress: style and steal
Christian Louboutin black patent leather Pigalle stilettos: style and steal
Mulberry black crocodile clutch bag: style and steal

Memo:
At the weekend we wrapped up and headed off to The Berkeley to meet Mummy and Daddy for dinner at the new restaurant by Marcus Wareing. The dimly lit dark wood room is lifted with striking contemporary artworks. The menu simply lists the key ingredients in a dish and "Rabbit, beetroot, watercress" was the most delicious starter. The Lake District lamb was beautifully tender, so tasty, and all the more impressive for having travelled from back home in the Lake District down to London. The desserts though, were a game changer. “Warm chocolate, crunch, salted caramel” went down very well, but my choice of “Toffee, peanut, milk chocolate nougat” was sublime.

Memo:
Recently I was lucky enough to shoot with the fabulous Gabor Szantai at (the delicious sounding) Biscuit Factory studios in Bermondsey. Tina, the fantastically talented hair and make up artist, perfected the beautifully natural look for the day whilst Gabor set the lighting and backdrop. Moving through the different shots, Tina touched up the styling and Gabor worked his magic behind the camera. And the results… I just love the moody atmospheric look we managed to create.

James Perse white cotton henley top: style and steal
Joseph black leather leggings: style and steal
Prada black saffiano leather tote bag: style and steal

Memo:
With the autumn sun high in the sky we ventured out along the Kings Road to potter through the Saturday farmers' market at Duke of York Square. The stalls were piled high with all sorts of tempting treats - wooden crates filled with handmade pies, boards and hampers of Italian meats and cheeses, boxes of mini cupcakes, towers of ginormous cookies and piles of decadent fudge. With rumbling tummies, we continued our stroll to Sloane Square and to one of my favourite Saturday lunch reservations - Colbert. A fantastic brasserie with the friendliest of waiters and the most deliciously naughty Club Pain Bagnat.

Leopard














Location:
Smith Street

Style:
ASOS leopard print jacquard dress: style and steal
Christian Louboutin black suede ankle boots: style and steal

Memo:
I’m trying to make the most of the relatively mild weather before the bitter winter comes, so short dresses with ankle boots is one of my favourite looks. This dress is a steal, and a super cute style with some seriously impressive fabric cutting. Although I’ve always been a resolutely monochrome girl, I’m starting to see leopard print as a neutral (what’s happening to me…) Paired with plain black or white, it automatically lifts an outfit and raises a smile.
