Meet… Isaac Reina

Isaac Reina may not be a familiar name to you but this would come as no surprise to me, he is a man of subtlety, both in presence and in design. In truth, it’s the design and quality of his bags that does the talking, they are simply beautiful; elegant, timeless designs that are not […]

All Night In Black & White

I usually go for plain t-shirts and sweatshirts but there’s something really cool about Être Cécile’s slogan t-shirts, this Toute La Nuit (All Night) one caught my eye recently. True to my style though, I would wear it with a simple outfit of black and neutral pieces. 1. Chanel Le Vernis – Nail Colour in […]

Small Grey Apartment In Stockholm

Photos: Skandia Mäklarna This small grey apartment in Stockholm proves that size doesn’t matter. The layout makes clever use of an internal window, providing light throughout and a feeling of openness. The uniform grey walls carry you on a continuous journey through the apartment, making it feel like one large room.

The Bum Bag

The ASOS Sale Personal Shop

I’ve been a fan of ASOS for many years now, their buyers have a knack for picking out some very cool brands and they also have a design team that create amazing pieces in-house (I love ASOS White) but the best bit for me is checking out their sales, which are epic. ASOS stock a […]

The Row PF15

The Row‘s PF15 collection was initially inspired by the California surf scene in the 60s and 70s. This is not immediately obvious but then when you look at the cut of the sleeveless dress (worn as a tunic over trousers) you’ll notice the wetsuit-style collar and then there’s those wide-leg culottes, reminiscent of a board […]

Style&Minimalism x La Cerise sur le Gâteau

As you’re probably already aware, I’m more than a little interested in fashion but my interest in design doesn’t end there. When I’m not blogging I work as a graphic designer – I have my own little agency and I mostly work on projects for the fashion industry. And, (when I can find time to squeeze it in) I do a bit of work on my home, a Victorian cottage I share with my boyfriend in London. My interior design style is quite minimalist too but with a dash of Victorian charm. The most recent additions to my place have been these fun cushions by La Cerise sur le Gâteau, a French brand that make the most gorgeous and quirky homewares.

The Best Of ASOS White

I cannot believe just how incredibly good the ASOS White collection is this season! ASOS White is usually the more restrained, minimalist line by ASOS, so as you can imagine it’s my first port of call when I look at their website. They have really nailed it for me this season with their cashmere knits, shirt dresses, culottes, cropped trousers and funnel-neck tops. I don’t know what’s changed at ASOS this season but I hope it stays this way. Usually I see two or three pieces that I really like but today I’m up to 15!! How do you whittle down 15 to a figure that won’t ruin your bank balance, just before Christmas? Here are my top picks from the collection, click on the images to see more details or to buy them.
