Sorry love, you’re getting a christmas jumper!

Oh how we all laughed together with Bridget back in 2001 when we saw Mark Darcy’s christmas jumper which he wore only to please his mother.

Who would have thought that only a decade later, christmas jumpers are going to be considered really trendy and super cute! I wear mine all winter…8))

Here is an awesome selection of vintage and handmade festive knits – still plenty of time to shop online!—jm1021-red/168105

Happy Birthday Marc ‘Glam’ Bolan

He was the original glam rock star, parading around London wearing feather boas, cheekbones covered with glitter. But did you know he used to be a model? He briefly joined a modelling agency, appearing in a clothing catalogue for the menswear store. He was a model for the suits in their catalogues as well as for cardboard cut-outs to be displayed in shop windows. “TOWN” magazine featured him as an early example of the mod movement in a photo spread with two other models.

It would have been his 65th birthday on 30th of September and I wonder what would Hackney-born Marc think walking through the streets of his hood these days. I reckon he would love all the hipsters! 8)

Here he is with T-Rex performing the awesome ‘Children of the revolution’

Anna Dello Russo accessorises H&M

She is the absolute queen of quirky accessories and italian bling, the editor-at-large at Vogue Japan branded  ‘fashion supermaniac’ and she has now created a line of accessories for H&M.

Available in stores from 4th of October, the collection includes sunglasses, jewellery, hats, shoes and handbags – and even a particularly stylish suitcase.

“I am excited by this collaboration – it’s the first time H&M has involved a fashion director in a special project,” said Dello Russo. “This is the sign of an important evolution in fashion, and I am both thrilled and humbled to be the one chosen to lead it. I wanted to create precious accessories that are impossible to find.  As a stylist I know accessorising is essential – it is the personal touch to any outfit. With these pieces everybody can have fun, turning an ordinary day into a fantastic fashion day.” (

This lady surely knows how to make her day special! Not mentioning she is looking hotter than hell at the age of 50 – we love you Anna!

Madonna Mia!

I totally missed Her Madgesty’s birthday last week – belated Happy Birthday to the Queen of Pop! Why oh why do people make all those nasty comments about her? Yes I agree, her music might not be anywhere as good as she used to be but I will forever cherish Immaculate Collection.  Yes she might be trying a bit too hard but I admire her work ethic, her ability to change looks so easily and successfully and also her fearless approach to life. Yes her films were never good and she made so many wrong choices but life is nothing but boring if you don’t try new things. It is comforting to know that even the rich, talented and famous can fail! And would I wear hot pants and fishnet tights at 54? ABSOLUTELY if I had her body. Plus, she is a pop star, remember, she can wear whatever she wants..8)) Here are some of her best looks through the years:

Happy Birthday Debs!

Debbie Harry is turning 67 today. Did you know she used to be a go-go dancer, a Playboy bunny, and also a secretary for BBC radio in New York before becoming the Blondie legend? And also that she appeared in more than 30 films?  We will always admire her atomic style…

My summer icon

My style icon for this summer is Brigitte Bardot. I always loved her photos and the strong mix of femininity and innocence. I love her hair, her sunglasses, her cropped trousers, her summer dresses, her stripes and gingham…and that certain je ne sais quoi about her!

I came across these adorable photos from the iconic 1950s Jumpology series of photos by Philippe Halsman. Hands up if you don’t have a ‘jumping for joy’ photo from a holiday? 8)
