Every time I look at a Temperley runway, I feel afraid. I’m afraid to see what the Middleton sisters will do with these clothes, particularly Pippa who somehow finds a way to remove what’s stylish about a piece and add her own dowdy-ass touch.   Full Article

One of my favourite collections from one of my favourites. The black leather coat is everything. The repeating leather on the upper part of that flirty dress is even more everything. I love the gold/yellow high collar two piece with the full sleeves. And its off-the-shoulder sister is a good safe compromise. Full Article

Am I the only one underwhelmed by this collection? My normal reaction to Burberry is a raging hard-on. But these prints are doing nothing for me. And there’s no timelessness to the coats. A Burberry coat is, in theory, supposed to be a statement that lasts longer than a season. And I can’t see how some of these trenches will work for longer than a few months. Full Article

There are a couple of dresses here that I quite like beyond the usual strapless full skirt standard of his label. Like this black one with the leather belt and those beautiful sleeves. Mostly, though, we’re dressing socialites here.  Full Article

Hi Duana, My husband and I are expecting a boy in May and we're having a really tough time coming up with a good name. Part of the problem is our last name - Wells. It's a fine, traditional English name, but it's also incredibly difficult to match up with a first name. If ‘he’ had been a ‘she,’ we most likely would have used Waverly. Full Article

Really into the wide headbands on this runway. The wide headbands and the casual collars combine for a really…loungewear feel about the collection. Some of this sh-t looks like straight up pyjamas. Like, how Joan Collins pads around her house.  I’m all about pyjamas as street clothes so I can’t complain. Full Article

Hi Duana, Ok, i've probably left this WAY too late but I'm due in 3 weeks and we can't decide on a name for our second child - a boy. Given that we are a mixed nationality family (Aussie mum, Dutch father) we are looking for something that can be pronounced in both languages and won't present any obvious teasing points. Full Article
