The best Message t-shirts of the season

April 26, 2017

The best Message t-shirts of the seasonAlice, who I photographed last week, wears the “Females of the future” t-shirt from Topshop I got for Mila last time I was in London.

Mila is getting at the age where she is borrowing more and more from my wardrobe and personally, I don’t feel ready to hang out my Converse, Stan Smith or cool sweatshirts anytime soon so size (and stains!) permitting, we are starting to get a bit of crossover in the fashion department.

Since I did a round-up of my favourite message sweatshirts last week, I thought I would treat you with my current favourite message t-shirts ;-) READ MORE...

15 Isabel Marant Must-haves in the Sale

January 4, 2016

15 ISABEL MARANT MUST-HAVES IN THE SALEAs you know, I’m a huge fan of Isabel Marant‘s style (I love her workplace too!). I have pieces I bought at full price and others I found on websites that sell pre-owned luxury fashion like Vestiaire CollectiveVide-Dressing and sometimes Ebay. The key things to bear in mind when buying an Isabel Marant must-have or for any pieces from your favourite Designer, are:

  • Buy it because it fits your style and personality (I don’t like everything she does or neither does everything suits my body shape, so choose wisely.
  • Work out the cost-per-wear (Total cost of the item/ estimated number of days you’ll wear it = the cost per wear). I live in my wedged sneakers in Winter time and in my Dickers boots in Summer time so the cpw is pretty low compared to the pair of high-heels I would wear less.
  • Try the outfit in shop first to work out your size so once the Sale is on, you know exactly what outfit and size to get.
  • Be patient and enjoy the process. Personally I draw more satisfaction from adding a key piece once in a while than if I had an unlimited budget. It makes me appreciate it more.

So without further ado, here are my top 15 Isabel Marant must-have in no specific order but I’ve sorted them by category (hope you’ll appreciate the work that goes into this! :-). The great news is that there is some real bargains to grab with some pieces at 50% OFF!
