Must-have denim dress from Uniqlo


Next year I am (finally) re-launching my wardrobe therapy service: this is basically where I visit people, in their homes, and rummage through their clothing collection, working out what's making them happy and what isn't; suggesting new ways of wearing their clothes, helping them part company with the pieces that have lost their pizzazz and adding to their collection with some gorgeous styles to suit their taste, personality and figure.

I've been working with a few clients in the run-up to Christmas, and the only downside is that I see clothes along the way that I want to buy for myself. Mainly I'm finding clothes that would totally suit them and aren't necessarily my taste at all, but occasionally there's a crossover.

Take this funky little sweat dress fom Uniqlo. I added it to a client's moodboard yesterday and now I can't stop thinking about it.

At £39.90, a denim style dress so soft and comfy-looking must qualify as a pre-Christmas treat, no?

This year's green sequin dress


It's that time of year again - and, as always, I find myself drawn to a very specific party dress: the green sequin number.

Red hair, green eyes...you do the math. Green glitter is the way forward.

This year I've picked the catwalk-inspired statement sequin dress by Quiz - which is a snip at £39 (you don't want to spend oodles on a dress like this, trust me - it's something of a one or two hit wonder).

Wear with sheer black tights and simple black stillettoes for grown up glitz - or team with thicker tights and the flat knee high suede boots from H&M I have become happily obsessed with, for a more grungy, rock-chic effect.

Enjoy!

Ultimate pink checked jacket


Oh kiddles - I'm not dead!

I've been a) on holiday and b) rushed off my feet. And a little bit I'll again, but lets not dwell on that.

Anyways, check out the best coat in the world, spotted in the window of Galeries Lafayette in Nice.

I believe it's by Manoush, but if you know different, do tell...

60s style orange dress by Georgia King


My 60s devotion continues apace - but this weekend I am *not* wearing vintage. I know, right.

This splendid 60s-inspired number, absolutely on the money for autumn, is brand new...

Beautiful, glamorous long dresses for Christmas


It's that time of year when the allure of pre-Christmas glamour makes us want to go out and splash a whole heap of cash on a statement dress that will make onlookers gasp.

I can't even keep track of how many dazzling dresses I've had stashed in my wardrobe over the years, from the full length gold sequin stunner to the bright pink 1960s mini dress with so much embellishment it weighs almost as much as me.

It's still October, but I'm already coveting this beautiful maxi evening dress by Darling, an elegant gown that reflects the catwalks of Nina Ricci and Alexander McQueen: vintage inspired, embellished in the right places and with a smattering of gold / silver glamour.

This statement style is perfect for the season; the Saphia maxi is available in sequin or silver for £225.
