Hi World, hope you’re all having s good one. Thought that each month I might detail a few of my lust haves for the month ahead, along with selected pictures of stylish fashionista’s to admire and inspire.
First up – SHOES!!!
I once had an amazing pair of ASOS mustard yellow t-bar heels that I wore everywhere. They looked amazing with a pencil skirt and opaque tights. Then one day I got my heel caught in the car seatbelt whilst wearing the shoes and managed to break my foot. I never wore the shoes again. But now I’ve spotted these beauties from Office and I’m thinking that I must embrace the mustard all over again. If mustard is not your colour, check out the Office website for other colours. These will look amazing with your ladylike dresses and skirts, and mustard is always great with black.
Style Icons for September.

SARAH JESSICA PARKER
Sarah Jessica Parker just gets better and better. The iconic star of Sex and The city shows that, when temperatures drop, a dressy blazer makes a glamorous cover up.
The dress also nails the new calf length completely, and with glossy tresses and soft make up, Sarah gives a great beauty lesson for the over 40’s.
For classic Carrie fashions – check out the constant reruns of Sex and the City on fiver and Comedy Central, and marvel at the fact that ‘carrie’ necklaces, corsages, horseshoe pendants and Fendi baguettes look just as fresh now as they did in the late 1990’s.
I remember some iconic party photographs of Kate Moss in the mid 1990’s, partying with Meg Matthews and Fran Cutler and wearing the most beautiful crushed blue velvet vintage coat. Deja vu anyone?
This gorgeous velvet creation is lustworthy, and along with the pretty dress it gives Daisy’s outfit a real vintage feel.
I think Daisy is one model worthy of the moniker ‘super’ and she seems to have inherited her mom’s knack of looking so fashion forward whilst wearing the most incredible vintage threads. I love this outfit, and have already started to search Ebay to add a bit of velvet to my Christmas wardrobe.
For curvy girls everywhere, the lovely Holly Willoughby is a poster girl for how to dress your figure to its best advantage. Nipped in waists, wrapover style dresses which enhance cleavage, and classic black, enables Holly to shine amongst the pelmet length skirts and Herve (yawn!) Leger looks on display the TV choice awards.
In addition – just take a look at Holly’s glorious mane. Glossy and flowing, she just absolutely beautiful. Frankly, it’s no wonder that Philip Schofield is always smiling. She’s a goddess.
The maxi dress is still going strong for Autumn, although it has taken on a darker tone. Evans has a good range of plus size maxi dresses. Here are a couple of my favourites.
Two completely different styles – a hippy, bohemian look that could grace the movie Hippy Hippy Shake, or a studio 54 Halston style evening dress with just the right amount of sparkle. Whichever one you choose – your sure to make the right impression.
Topshop have a glorious range of bags this season looking back at English heritage. These are my favourites.
I love the tassel front bag for everyday use. It has the feel of a school satchel which every child of the 70’s would recognise. The fabric box bag is exquisite, looking like a Victorian relic found in an attic, if only you could be that lucky!
