I am very bad at painting my nails. As far as I can tell, painting the dominant hand with the non-dominant hand is as tricky as finding the perfect lipstick, jean or bobble hat, all tasks I wouldn't wish on an enemy. But I am particularly inept.

The Luxury Fashion Experience

Luxury fashion cannot just be equated to 'carrying a designer handbag on your arm'; it's the lifestyle we experience. In the words of Coco Chanel, 'Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street. Fashion has to do with ideas, with the way we live.'

What Does Luxury Mean to You?

Historically, the term luxury has always been a standard of quality, a mark of authenticity and shielded by a veil of exclusivity. But now the term is increasingly being owned by high street brands looking to squeeze a few more pennies via some nice packaging, leading to this dearth of 'luxury' options.

I want you to know that I don't wear vintage every day. No sir! I am actually a little bit of a designer whore on the side... Give me access to Net-a-Porter, a juicy Malbec (see my bio) and a flexible friend (Monsieur's Visa or Amex, I'm not fussy) and you can keep me quiet for hours.

I was first bitten by the vintage bug in 1983, borrowing my grandma's 60s kitten heeled sling backs - they had toes so pointed you could have impaled anyone you kicked. I carefully borrowed a few of grannie's pieces - mostly shoes, jewellery and handbags to add to my puff ball skirts, explosive hair and wrist to elbow silver slave bangles.
