(not to be confused with body bags..rather less morbid) remember back in 2006 when the way you wore your it-bag was just as crucial as the bag itself? the 'resting in the crook of your elbow' model carry look became the order of the day but I much prefer the unfussy 'cross-body' way-leaves your

I have a problem with the Style File interviews laying admiration on people for 'having caught the eye of Prince Harry over the Summer' especially when the same subject goes on to describe herself as 'a high-street girl' with the exception of an occasional Gucci shoe purchase. Or a Mulberry...

What's on your bedside table? My bedside table is more accurately a desk so presently a perennially dying cheeseplant, my radio (to indulge my radio 4 obsession), various magazine tear outs and school books Raggedy old jumpers in sombre colours, leather trousers, t-shirts under dresses,...

For this reason the pyjama style jackets that Topshop have been rolling out recently have a nice 'beddish' quality about them without leaving the wearer psychologically confused (yes) about their state of undress. Winter seems to be the solution when layering is the saviour of tricky trends...

Spent money I do not possess in h&m (woo, month of eating only couscous to repent! I hope my Mum isn't reading this..) and in the afternoon I drank some Horlicks and wrapped up in my raincoat to battle the rain.

I'm really excited to have another vintage store, Cotton Fields Vintage sponsoring Discotheque Confusion. Cotton Fields is a newbie, just started by Jillian Smith in Scotland with a small selection of reasonably priced vintage dresses ranging from the 50s to the 70s. If there is anything that...
