The Luxe Bomber: A must-have item I didn’t know I needed

I’ve never been too sold on bomber jackets. They have always seemed just too sporty for my glam/ girly style. However, when I saw this metallic tapestry-print version from Boohoo I was smitten.

Kinky Boots: How to wear knee highs

As soon as I saw these burgundy knee highs I was totally and irrevocably in love.

Finally a pair of tall boots slender enough for my legs! Plus I am a sucker for anything of a berry hue. At £109, these were a little out of my usual price range so I actually saved for them. Not only did I  crave these boots; I earned them.

Now knee-highs aren’t always the easiest thing to wear. 9/10 I think an ankle boot looks neater. But I was determined to find a way to work these beauties into my wardrobe. Read more…
