If you look after your jeans, they should be a great investment purchase and last for years. If you wash them as per the care instructions the shape should bounce back each time. If they do start to rip and distress through wear and tear, remember you can always have them patched as a simple denim alteration.
The watch has become a quintessential item of style and functionality. A popular article of dress, antique and rare watches have come to be considered as collectible items of jewellery, for their ornamental value rather than just for their time-keeping function.
There is a difference between a shapely bottom and a big bum. Back in the day, women used to ask "Does my bum look big in this?" If it did, they would scream and change outfit. Fast forward years later, when the same question is asked, we want the person being asked to respond, "Yes it does, and it looks fabulous darling."
If a model, UK size 10 is considered a plus-sized figure, then there's literally no hope for the majority of women in Britain as the average clothes size for a UK woman is a 16! Oh no, what unattractive monsters we must all be!
I've always loved London. I feel it's time to reconnect with its culture and the people. And see my audience again after all this time. Personally, I think London has evolved more than most European cities, it's really one of, if not the most dynamic cities in the world.
I rock a pair of Nike Air Max, people tell me it's good I'm going to the gym. I wear a quilted skirt, people ask why I'm wearing half a sleeping bag. I buy a vintage jacket and people sing 'Climb Every Mountain' because apparently I look like I'm wearing the Sound of Music curtain outfit (the most offensive thing there being the weak song choice, of course).
You walk into Topshop and this mannequin is the first thing you see - the ONLY representation of the female body throughout the store. Do you think, 'I'm thin but I'm not that thin - is this how I should look like?' Possibly, yes.
The whole argument for and against immigration is way too complex for any one person to discuss in a single article but there is one area that I haven't heard people talk about in the debate and that's the creative industries.
The notion that men should fear the end of sexism is as absurd and repellent as the notion that white people should fear the end of racism, or straight people should fear the end of homophobia. But should David Cameron fear feminism? Well probably yes.
Having already conquered the clutch and mastered the art of the high heel, Charlotte Olympia is now channeling her trademark retro flair and signature British wit into a collection of leather handbags for Fall 2014.
Simons is also the man who named the iconic Harrington jacket. Originally known as the G9 jacket as sold by the Baracuta brand, John sold it in his shop as the 'Harrington' after Rodney Harrington, the character played by Ryan O'Neal in the TV soap opera Peyton Place.
The following collections - some for women, some for men, some for both - are extreme examples of how you can introduce a bit of colour into your outfits this season. If you absolutely will not be parted from your darker styles, why not try wearing them with a pair of amazing, colourful kicks like these Mary Katrantzou x adidas Originals designs?
A story on fashion is not my usual Huffington fair, but I actually started my writing career working for an alternative fashion magazine called Sinzine and studied fashion at college back in my New Romantic youth.
"Our beauty special puts the spotlight on the spectacular recent advancements in anti-aging technologies. The latest crop of products is much gentler on the skin, producing more natural, more precise results," writes Emmanuelle Alt, Vogue Paris editor-in-chief...
What exactly constitutes an 'essential'? If you go by Waitrose's suggestions, it's everything from raw prawns and hummus to yum yums, so I'm guessing it's pretty subjective.
In that moment, I realized I have two wardrobes: the one that fits me now. And the one that will hopefully fit again in a few weeks / months. Maybe you have the same. Funny, I'm not remotely a follower of fashion, and am thus not remotely interested in whether The Second Wardrobe as I will from now on call it, will drift out of fashion in the months (or years) that it is (not literally) mothballed.
