How to Wear the Little Black Dress!

Thursday, January 21, 2016

  The Duchess of Windsor, Wallis Simpson, once said, that “When the little black dress is right, then there is nothing else to wear in its place.” And I have to agree wholeheartedly with her, as there is nothing more elegant than a simple, little black dress; a real fashion-savour when you need to shift from ...

Travelling is a big part of my job as a Fashion Editor/Blogger and as glamorous as that may sound, it really isn't. I spend more time in the departure lounges of boring airports and on the plane getting from point A to point B than in the actual city that I'm visiting for the purpose ...

Best products for red hair! Shock confession, I'm not truly a natural redhead. Yes, I admit that my gorgeous red hair is in fact, not the result of natural selection but rather the result of personal choice and eight hours undergoing agonising hair colour stripping to near white, followed by at least three shades of red ...

No matter what time of the year, I'm always in the mood for silk. After all, can you think of another fabric that feels more luxurious caressing your skin than silk pyjamas, stocking or a robe made from its soft yet incredibly strong thread?
