Allow me to introduce you to my fabulous new Jemima Vine smoking slippers and how fitting, since we’ve just entered the Chinese Year of the Snake, that they look like this! They aren’t made from real python, but look just as good and come with a clear conscience. Snake print (and real snake) is a huge […]Read more "year of the snake"

After he announced his resignation earlier today, I spent some time researching his sartorial habits (I don’t usually pay much attention to papal fashion, I admit) and stumbled across his well documented penchant for red smoking slippers. Well, it just so happens […]Read more "divine inspiration"

The Rupert Sanderson shoes I’m wearing here are some of […]Read more "loafing around"

First I was sent some brilliant socks from Catherine Tough (they are really nice, check out the website here), then I booked a holiday (a chance to wear sandals! Yay!), and finally, I got my mitts on the new Grenson SS13 look book. […]Read more "Friday I’m in love"
