The cropped trouser

With this ever changeable climate I am trying to come up with fab new spring summer looks for my clients without them freezing to death, or looking overly summery on an over cast day!

If you are having the same quandary then look to a cropped or 7/8th's trouser.  It loos summery and fresh with out leaving you with blue legs from the cold!

My Top 3 on the high street or on-line are:

Oasis Navy crop trouser £35.00

Zara, Trouser with turn-up £29.99

or Isabella Oliver 365 Cigarette pant £95.00

Wear them for work with a vibrant print blouse, a blazer or on the weekend with a loose T-shirt and leather jacket.  You will look fabulous.  Just make sure you team it with a fab heel to elongate those pins, my top shoe choices would be:

This Next court for work £18.00

This Aldo wedge for weekend £70.00

Jubilee Outfit.. done!

This week I made my Jubilee weekend outfit purchase and I have to say it is very me...

It is of course Vivienne Westwood who to me is the Queen of British Fashion and in fact the reason I decided to pursue a career in fashion, so it seemed only fitting that I should wear some Vivienne for the big Jubilee bash!  It cost me a small fortune £260 but a Toga style jersey dress will stand the test of time and will work all year round.

It also looks great with my new £12 necklace from Republic, it is called the Miso Spike and Bead necklace and it reminded me so much of Merle O'Grady's Bombshell necklace that I had to make it part of my growing jewellery collection!

                 Republic £12                              V    Merle O'Grady £256 (£50 now as previous season)

The arrival of the ROCK!

This weekend has seen me consume 11 bottles of Champagne (with friends), eat out at 4 different restaurant's, drink at 7 different bars and rather than feel exhausted I feel like I am walking on Cloud 9!

And its all because after just over 5 years of dating Rich popped the question... and after blubbing a lot, I said yes!

As requested, here is the story of the evening...

It started with a cocktail or 2 with my sister at St Martins Lane hotel, (I highly recommend the a pineapple and basil martini) where we had the 'will he ever propose' discussion until he arrived of course! 

Then the he whisked me away from my sister and more martini's to our favourite restaurant J.Sheekey's for Oyster's, Lobster and far too many glasses of Champers!

We sat at the bar in my favourite spot and it was the perfect meal (try the crab croquettes they are to die for).

At this point I thought what a great date night and it would be time for home, but instead he took me to the Savoy for yet another bottle of Champagne, we sat in the sofa in the picture next to the Jazz band who played LOVE followed by Cry Me A River I was singing along as they are 2 of my favourite songs!!  Then he pulled my Nan's ring out of his pocket and asked me to be his bride!!!  Aaaahhhhh

I will be honest, the next few moments of the evening are a massive blur of tears and confusion.  But I said yes and then we moved into the Thames Foyer where it was quieter and we could ring our family's which is where the picture below was taken.

My Nan's ring (known as the cupcake ring) on loan until we have a ring made.  My Nan passed away before I started dating Rich, we were very close and I know that she will love having been part of my engagement.  I am also certain that she would have approved!

After having spoken to our families we took a midnight stroll along the Southbank near our house and sat under the twinkly lights by the OXO Tower with yet more Champagne looking out at the City and St Paul's.
