We wish we could …

…be at the Alice Temperley preview on October 18th!


She’s showcasing her summer 2014 collection to raise funds during a Prince’s Trust Fashion Dinner and to give you a clue, tickets for the dinner would set you back £150 a seat, but buyers are encouraged to buy a whole table (that’s £1,500 for ten diners). And of course a Temperley gown is going to start at around £650, in fact our favourite garment from the winter collection are the Sphinx knit dresses: flared and pencil, at £695 each.

… go back to school


It’s so cute to see all the littlies buying their stationery and uniforms, and so great, if you’re a Mum, to be looking forward to a little more time in the day to get things done! Back to school chic is also big in our lives right now, with crisp white shirts and knee socks featuring on our grown-up shopping lists as well as on our children’s! Satchels have been big fashion staples for the past few years, and we know that nothing makes for more fun than bringing touches of the boudoir into the daily grind. So if you want to thrill your lover on a chilly Monday morning, why not hint at pleasures ahead by donning some oh-so-demure stockings and packing your satchel as a subtle hint that there’s going to be some adult fun in the evening!

… dance with the stars


And we’re keen to see what this year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ contestants can do with their strut. It should be a great year for gowns, with lingerie model Abbey Clancy and former Bond Girl Fiona Fullerton likely to go head-to-head in the ‘revealingly sexy’ category while Sophie Ellis Bexter and breakfast TV star Susanna Reid will probably battle it out for the ‘most sophisticated’ attire. Vanessa Feltz has already told reporters her strategy – sequins on her undies!

As for the men, we can’t wait to see gorgeous Ben Cohen on the floor! And Ben’s muscles aren’t the only reason we love him; his work to stamp out bullying with his Stand Up Foundation is heart-warming.

… rock a matte black manicure!


It looks great and it was runway mandatory at several shows last month, including Karen Walker and it teams wonderful with the chocolate and spice lipstick colours that are top tips for winter sensuality, but we haven’t got this look down perfectly yet. Matte black nails with shiny black patent tips are the best version of it we’ve seen, but we’re probably going to stick to our usual Rouge Noir Pulp Fiction look for this winter, after all, it’s been a classic vamp style since Clara Bow in the 1920s, so why change a winning formula?
