legs eleven

Winter is drawing near and it's time to think about keeping those legs warm (and free from the thawed-out chicken look that tends to plague us English roses)

Here are some of the looks I will be rocking.

Gold legs! Get yourself some gilded pins from

Front-seamed tights from Falke

Wolford Minnie tights

These wild tights are perfect for grey days. See more at

I'm such a fan of these striped sheer panelled tights. This is one of the best sites I've found for every kind of sock/tights/stockings for a great price - go here

luella lookbook

As well as the RTW catwalk collection, Luella has also produced an A/W lookbook alongside to complement pieces seen at London Fashion Week. These are softer looks, more feminine and with some of the utilitarian essence from this A/W left in. The collection is a departure from the ultra feminine Spring Summer Luella look of pretty tea dresses with a twist and I love it.

Take me to those gold tights...

This weeks' heavy rain has inspired me to colour in my plain old white umbrella with non-permanent marker pens - when it rains I am surrounded by multicoloured waterdrops which certainly cheers up a dull and wet Monday morning!

(Just make sure you're not wearing anything white!)

model watch - anja rubik

Anja always has inspirational hair; I love both the asymmetrical bob and the shorter Edie Sedwick style crop.

the colour purple...

… and teal, indigo, grape… This autumn we are to be swathed in the rich colours of royalty; have a look at these images for inspiration. I collected these whilst lamenting the loss of summer but now I don't miss it so much after seeing what the colder months have to offer!

Carolina Herrera's grape silk dress with beaded cape is the epitome of elegance

Lacoste gets teal right with lots of layers; skintight jumpsuits with knitted waistbelts, hooded tanks over mini skirts and tights; oversized draped cape-coat paired with silk tank and high waisted trousers.

Accessories go bold; perfect if most of your wardrobe is black or you just can't bring yourself to brave a full-on purple look. I love this whole outfit.

Gorgeous opera-length leather gloves from Fenwick.

Teal suede platforms with snakeskin detailing by Nicholas Kirkwood - shoes don't get any more beautiful.

twinkle twinkle

Better late than never... My favourite (and most dazzling) finds from ebay/etsy.

Silver sequin and tassel top (worn over vintage silk slip) I found this at Beyond Retro in London and was so in love with it I didn't really care what it was or how I could wear it... Now it is a definite wardrobe staple.

Bright blue sequin dress.
