I’m very excited about this issue of Candid Magazine with milliner Stephen Jones gracing our cover. I rarely feel that I’m doing shoots that I truly love and really want to be doing (I’m planning on changing that this year), but this shoot was something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time! Plus I love hats andContinue reading

I’m very fond of hats, actually I love a good hat and think that a hat can completely transform your outfit and influence your day. I’ve used several of Alexandra Harper’s hats for  editorial shoots. She’s already been featured in Grazia, the Los Angeles Times, Russian Vogue, Marie Claire and on Lara Stone in InterviewContinue reading

It’s so sad to see a cute lost hat.

Are you ready for Ascot? Well if you don’t have the perfect hat it’s worth a visit to the Ascot Pop-up Shop featuring milliner Piers Atkinson. A good hat can serve many purposes but at Ascot you want the hat of all hats. It’s the one place where no hat is over the top. MakeContinue reading

I loved swings when I was little and I’m still partial to the occasional ride at a festival so I was quite delighted to find this swing in Allen Gardens.                

Knitting has become popular again. Maybe it’s because it’s getting cold outside and we are thinking knitwear or maybe it’s just something creative to do. It’s not about economics as it’s often cheaper to buy a sweater then to make one. I personally love the accessories, the little gloves, hats and scarves! Rowan have someContinue reading

Studio 805 is a new menswear line designed by Andrew Bannister. Andrew graduates this summer from Leeds College of Art & Design (LCAD). I love this collection: it’s bright, cheerful and clever. I also love the hats – they’re a bit bellboy-like but what stylist could resist this collection! The fabrics range from printed butcherContinue reading

I like hats. When I’m wearing a hat I feel very self-conscious but at the same time quite special. Hats have always been an indicator of social status – perhaps this is why we feel special when we’re wearing a hat, or it might just be the whimsical nature of hats with so many delightfulContinue reading

Vivienne Westwood’s Red Label show at London Fashion Week was a huge event and it took place at Earls Court’s Brompton Hall. It must have had a capacity for over a thousand people, so of course it was a star studded crowd with Pamela Anderson, Kate Moss, Erin O’Conner, Dita Von Teese, Emma Watson andContinue reading

The beret has been around for ages and has generally been worn in the military since the mid-20th century. Although military is not a big trend this season I think the beret will be great for this Autumn/Winter 08! I love this Chanel beret; I tried it on and it’s so cute! If it’s aContinue reading

I really like wearing hats but I don’t seem to wear them often enough I feel a bit odd wearing them on the tube. I was invited to the Luxury Council Summer Rooftop Garden Party so it was the perfect opportunity to wear a hat! The party took place looking over the Thames river nearContinue reading

I used to dress up my cat in my doll clothes and push her around in my pram when I was little. So naturally I was very excited to read about Cat Prin in this months Vice Magazine. You can read the full article by Vice at Puss In Boots (And Hats and Capes andContinue reading

Spitafields Market – there have been so many changes & renovations here I wasn’t sure how much I was going to like it, I was afraid that it wouldn’t have the same charm. It did – just more polished. In the few years I’ve been in London I’ve noticed lots of things change. It willContinue reading

I have always loved hats – so living in London is the right place to explore this love. Canada is a place more suitable for a functional “I don’t want any more frostbite” kind of hat. I tend to like hats that are small and understated. I don’t want to be the annoying kind ofContinue reading

I really like attending On|Off – there are so many new designers there – I say new but many of them have been designing for years. The venue is set up in a very welcoming way: you feel free to look at a collection and chat with the designer and of course it’s a beautifulContinue reading

It’s raining out and nobody’s shopping so it’s a perfect time to check out the new accessories at Topshop and dream of summer. I love these big summer floppy big hats and these 80’s clutch bags. This is a Chanel 2.55 inspired bag by Marc B and it’s only £35!

Louis Mariette is a fabulously delightful milliner and i-D magazine stated that he was one of the 250 most influential creative professionals in the world. He is probably most famous for designing the world’s most expensive hat, valued at £1.5 million. Most importantly, whenever you visit Louis’ showroom you’re offered a cup of tea andContinue reading
