Weekend Shopping: The Tracksuit Trend With Exclusive Styling Ideas From Fellow Adi-Fan, Alexis Knox

| Posted 03.02.2012 | UK Style

This weekend I'm tracksuit shopping - old school Adidas tracksuit shopping, to be specific. I'm going all out for the classic three-stripe, totally man-made matching numbers that made such a lasting impression on me when the likes of Run DMC popularised them in the mid-1980s and have been sneaking into my wardrobe ever since.

| Posted 03.06.2012 | UK Style

The Raw Denim Bar imports cult US designer denim brands to the UK but what really makes it stand out is its focus on the customer experience. I spoke with San Francisco-born Wendy Montgomery Fischnaller, owner and founder of The Raw Denim Bar, to find out more.

Weekend Shopping: New Shoes!

| Posted 03.09.2012 | UK Style

I've had a bad run of it recently with shoes. First my gorgeous new heels inexplicably went from a wonderful, glove-like fit to cutting off the circulation in my toes, then the triple height crepe soles of my beloved vintage pony hair creepers split in two.

I love switching it up with my beauty routine, trying new products based on claims, smell, curiosity or even just eye catching packaging. But I find that there's a hardcore of elite picks I always return to and here they are, on this weekend's Hero Product shopping lists for hair followed below by skincare.

You covet it from the moment it hits the catwalk, you track the days til it drops in store, then - too late! - "we're all sold out madam, but there is one available in our other shop... in Paris". However, thanks to FarFetch.com, this type of crushing blow is soon to be obliterated.

Weekend Shopping: Fashion Conscious Tech Accessories

| Posted 03.23.2012 | UK Style

After a series of total tech fails I've finally given in and gone all out for Apple. It's bye bye PC laptop - I will miss your easy backspace key - and HELLO sexy new MacBook Pro.

Colour Me Sporty: New Liberty Print Nike Collection is Ready to Spring

| Posted 03.27.2012 | UK Style

Whilst I often like Nikes I see in stores, they never really grabbed me until the Nike X Liberty collaborations, fusing sports technology with heritage print fabrics from London's iconic department store. I'm sold.

Weekend Shopping: From SoHo to Soho, NYC's Jack Spade Opens First UK Store

| Posted 03.30.2012 | UK Style

I have a particular fondness for menswear label Jack Spade, the New York brother brand to womenswear sibling Kate Spade, having been introduced to them a few years ago when I first met my other half. I was so taken with his army green twill messenger bag and its pop of orange lining, that I went straight out and bought one myself.
