The femininity and romance continues with bold and rhythmical flowers and leaves designed to move sensually with the body - in particular, the hand finished diamante drops and peek-a-poo aesthetic of the sheer base teamed with seductive suspender belt, thong or brief. It's super pretty, super feminine, and super expensive.

I've never met Bao Bao Wan but everything I've read about her makes me smile.

Spend, spend, spend: London's retailers were rubbing their hands together in anticipation at the start of October, and not because of any early pre-Christmas splurge from UK shoppers.

Maybe we'll have to shout louder...

They say that no one understands a good cup of tea quite like the British. Well I can certainly vouch for that as I love a good cuppa.
