Dude Looks Like a Lady

My poor fiancĂ© is going to have to start locking up his closets.

Stella McCartney Sweater

I've always had a soft spot for tartan. I'm sure that we all had a penchant for a short tartan skirt once upon a time. Perusing rails upon rails of vintage kilts in a plethora of colours, lengths and prints was a weekly hobby for me.

Stella McCartney's AW13 collection is one of my favourite of the season; the cosy chunky knits, oversized coats and skirt sets which resemble pyjamas literally have me planning a weekend in the Highlands by a log fire drinking copious amounts of whiskey and stuffing my face with shortbread. 

The first piece that I need to get my hands on is this beautiful angora tartan sweater. It may not be cheap but winter will certainly be that bit more manageable with this in my life.

Find it from Harrods here.

Saint Laurent SS14

...and the Saint Laurent obsession continues with his Joan Jett inspired skinny suits and mini dresses, perfect for a night of hell raising.

I adore these looks from Chloe's S/S14 show. 

It must be a sign of maturity that I find these covered up looks incredibly sexy (or maybe it's just a lack of sleep).

Some recent street style favourites. 

There's nothing I love more this season than well-loved, butter soft leather, simple sandals that belonged in a Calvin Klein show circa 1990 and an oversized, slouchy leather clutch that's held like a paper bag.

Fausto Puglisi really is a designer that keeps me wanting more and more each season. His dresses and palm tree prints are perfect for next summer, the countdown is on.

My top two picks from Pucci. Beaded perfection with a tough-girl edge.

On a side note, I am developing a Joan Smalls obsession (above).

Those who know me know that I was born in the wrong decade. I'm obsessed with the 20s and 30s the days when women draped themselves in liquid satin and thick fluffy fur stoles and wore breathy dresses that could be worn to bed if you were feeling extra decadent.

Roberto Cavalli's summer collection for 2014 is just that. Tassels, fur (in summer which is just magnificent), beaded breathy dresses which graze your ankle but have more sex appeal than a crotch-skimming Herve Leger and colours that appear to have been faded by the summer sun.

Peter Pilotto perfection.

Pin It Now!

I must say I am a bit of a shoe snob and I have neglected Stuart Weitzman my entire life. These recent pictures with Kate Moss pictured in footwear that would look perfect on Carnaby Street in the swinging 60s have got me changing my tune and I'm already scouring the web for the bottom pair in black to get me through winter.

At the beginning of each season I devise a wishlist of all the necessary pieces I feel like I can't live without. Generally this list is scattered with a few treasures that won't be joining me in this lifetime other than if I win the Euromillions or uncover a hidden talent in robbery. These include vintage Cartier panther bracelets, a richly coloured fur coat which is the equivalent of three Fiat 500's and an emerald crocodile birkin.

Something that is more doable is this fabulous Isabel Marant beaded wrap skirt. I always try to avoid seasonal frivolities (Celine's fur Birkenstocks take note) however I feel that a piece which incorporates sequins and studs and that is wearable both day and night is definitely something that gets my vote.

Available at Harvey Nichols & Selfridges.

PS. Who else is giddy at the prospect of the new Isabel Marant store in London opening at the end of this month?
