He loves colour and he loves print. I love one of those necklaces. Last year I tried on a Matthew Williamson dress at Selfridges on a suggestion from the incomparable Hilary Alexander. If only “Hilary said I should buy it” was an acceptable explanation for the credit card companies.  Full Article

One of Catherine Cambridge's favourites. You'll be seeing at least one of these looks on her. Perhaps at the Olympics? The label is London-based but the designer isn't English born. Does that count for patriotism?  Full Article

I often wonder why Aquascutum isn't more popular in certain circles. The clothes are beautiful, classic, and solidly made. I once worked for the president of an academic institution. She loved Aquascutum. Maybe that's the image: briefcases aren't sexy? But why not?  Full Article

I think I might be really into these tights with the random scribbling all over them. LOVE Vivienne Westwood so much. You know why? Because despite how intimidating her clothes look on a runway, they actually fit real people. And very well. Women of all ages. All bodies too. Westwood, if you can believe it, does actually have more than just Sarah Jessica Parker in mind when she designs. Full Article

Is it unfair to say that I like Temperley less because of Pippa Middleton? Just...these clothes, they really aren’t super exciting to me. In fact, some of it is straight up ugly. Example: check out Pippa a few months ago at the Temperley show for Spring 2012. That’s a designer dress???  Full Article

Omg Sasha! I'm in love with the dress Kate Beckinsale was wearing at the Spirit Awards (nominations)!! :o Can you find me some other options to? The good news is that it’s a Tadashi Shoji dress from the spring 2012 collection so it should be available soon.  The bad news is that I think Kate f-cked this dress up bad. Full Article

Few things are as exciting to me as buying a brand new pair of running shoes and I can hardly wait to put them on and take them out for a run. I have a pair of shoes for each of my running outfits (yes, while most women are more concerned with finding the hottest shoes to match a new dress, I want to find the right shoe to go with my bright green running jacket). Full Article

Rooney Mara was front row at CK today. And Rooney Mara inspiration seemed to be all over the runway too. She was seen getting all friendly with Francisco Costa. Is there a deal in the works? Or will she be wearing him a week Sunday?  Full Article

I'm wondering if you can tell me what type of necklace Jessica Alba is wearing in the attached pic? It looks like Links of London, but it's not on their site. I must have this piece!!! Thanks!! L Jessica is wearing a Giles & Brother necklace called “The Fine Trove Ring”.  For some reason it’s no longer on the designer site but looks like you can buy it right here... Full Article

I’ve received a lot of letters asking why some stars on the red carpet are wearing shoes that are too big for them.  Some of you are actually right pissed about it.   So to calm all your nerves I have a couple of theories which I hope will bring peace to the matter. When celebrity stylists are pulling shoes for their clients they aren’t pulling from the Jimmy Choo or Louboutin retail stores; they head to designer showrooms. Full Article
