Coco Chanel once said that fashion fades and only style remains the same. I agree with her statement wholeheartedly which is why I’m not going to offend your intelligence and good taste, which you clearly posses if you are reading It’s beyond My Control and tell you about new trends, what you should or shouldn’t be buying this season. You have to find your own style, which isn’t always as easy as it sounds and sometimes takes years to refine but once you get there you will be able to filter really fast through the seasons new looks and disregard completely what’s not relevant to you personally; only take what will help to distil your style.
If a land of eternal autumn existed, a place dominated by leaves of gold and red, where the temperature was perfect for wearing a Burberry coat every day, accessorised with Christian Louboutin pumps, then I would move there immediately. However, Narnia is but a book while winter; a reality and such a difficult time of year for anyone wanting to look chic, unless you never have to spend more than the briefest of moments out in the cold air, you’ll struggle, finding yourself choosing clothes for their warmth rather than strictly for their appearance.

After a very short deliberation, I’ve decided to start a new section on It’s Beyond My Control entitled The Luxurious Dog, for matters concerning all things that are important for your pampered pooch and as the title suggests, these won’t be short on luxury but at the same time, I intend them to be practical items that should be considered essential to best present your pedigree. The reason for this new section, well quite simply a dream of mine has come true and I can take great pride in welcoming into the de Merteuil family, Isia-Lilith, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy who has been keeping me away from writing for so long.
