Winter Ready with Clarks

This season Clarks has our feet covered… Literally.  With the chillier weather swooping in (my tights were brought back out of their summer slumber only yesterday), this well-known brand has launched a plethora of boots for us to stylishly tackle the winter months in.

There are many new styles available but I decided to road test the new Carleta Lyon Boots in my neighbourhood.  Although available in darker, more wintery hues (navy, black and khaki) I thought I would ease my way into the cool with a tan suede pair, clinging onto the daylight and last rays of sun whilst I can!

As the song goes, these boots were made for walking (unlike most of my shoes which were definitely made for Uber!) The heel height is totally bearable, and my feet were the happiest they’ve been since before Fashion Week and its subsequent hobbling.

“Are you ready boots? Start walking…”

Matthew Williamson for Osborne and Little

During London Fashion Week I decided to take a little fashunnnn time out go to the launch of Matthew Williamson’s latest collection of fabrics and wallpapers for Osborne and Little.  As I'm currently refurbishing my flat, I'm on the constant lookout for design inspiration - and what better place to start?  Matthew’s signature love of kaleidoscopic prints and his penchant for the exotic has been reflected in this collection of spirited, fruity fabrics and wild and whimsical wallpapers.

If you’re not currently looking to update your home with any crouching tigers, or not so hidden peacocks (and and I must ask, why not?!) I suggest you get yourself a FANTASTICAL Matthew Williamson for Osborne and Little umbrella.  I couldn’t have been more thrilled with mine on that day (my Clo and Flo blow dry was saved - Phew!!) and I can already foresee that my latest, fabulously flamboyant accessory will fast become my most useful!

J&M Davidson's 30th Anniversary

I recently attended the most beautiful of dinners at the Connaught in celebration of J&M Davidson's 30th anniversary.  I knew my evening was to be a special one when my invitation arrived in the form of a limited edition, silver clutch bag (which I carried on the night).  The dinner was co-hosted by John and Monique Davidson and Tanya Ling, an illustrator who has a long history with the husband and wife team. 

Tanya Ling's unique, illustrated menus and name cards were stunningly placed amongst the most elegant of Wild at Heart flowers by Nikki Tibbles. Just BEAUTIFUL!! 

John and Monique Davidson launched J&M Davidson in 1984 from their home in Chiswick.  Now a global British brand with a French twist, their constantly evolving collections include covetable handbags, handcrafted belts, clothing and knitwear, all available online or from their colourful Notting Hill store.
