Weekend Shopping: We Want Gold

Sarah McGiven | Posted 03.10.2012 | UK Style
Sarah McGiven

Seems there's a gold rush going on at the moment everywhere (even the Team GB trophy cabinet) with glistening, golden shades shining from shop rails, beauty displays and shoe stores. When it comes to metallics I'm usually a silver or bronze girl although I do love a rose gold, especially for eyeshadows and jewellery.

Weekend Shopping: Bronze Is Beautiful

As a redhead (for now) bronze is also a really flattering shade for me and one I love wearing both as clothing, accessories and - carefully, no-one's talking matchy-matchy eyes/lips/cheeks 90s MAC Spice style here - cosmetics. Here's my pick of a few great bronze-toned pieces from fashion and beauty through to some gorgeous glassware.

Weekend Shopping: Fourth of July American Flag Waving Fashion

Sarah McGiven

I adore America. I also love a bit of theme dressing. As a kid I spent a lot of Independence Days in the States and, even though with the exception of having a few American relatives, I don't really have any reason to celebrate 4th July, for me it's just a great excuse to dress up, eat some Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and drink even more Diet Coke and Starbucks than usual.

Should You Always Try to Overdress?

Jess Shanahan | Posted 29.07.2012 | UK Style
Jess Shanahan

I've often been told 'aren't you a little overdressed?' and I wonder why it would matter. As Oscar Wilde said: "You can't be overdressed or overeducated". I think we live in a world of baggy jeans, ill-fitting dresses and horrible old t-shirts. I don't understand why someone wouldn't want to make an effort when they go out.
