Shuesday: Get your Scot on

Because of course what everyone needs for summer is a Kiltie Brogue wedge - with a peep toe no less.

Must haves: God save the Queen

The FG is totally suffering from Union Jack fever - is this too much? In a corner somewhere?

Fashion Police UK

I've been on this side of the pond for almost a full six months now, and I have comments.

Inexplicably, still in fashion here: deep orange tans, excessive foundation/face powder/blush, wearing running shoes to, from, and in-between work (Working Girl, anyone?), tights in all hues, Uggs, hairbands (Gossip Girl is huge here), leggings (I know, I know, they're still in fashion on the other side of the pond too), giant pearl necklaces (clearly I should have kept this), and wearing next to nothing in freezing temperatures. Also, not wearing clothes that fit in a nation that is, well, more comfortable with its average size than you'll find in major US cities. It's not pretty.

What I remember from NYC: loads of necklaces, aforementioned leggings, scarves, scarves, scarves, trench coats for spring (see below), artfully messy updos

I don't remember: skirts that emphasize the hips - is this the return of the pouf skirt?, far more skirts than pants, actually, and skirts far, far too short for things like sitting down, bending over, etc. Also deep, deep side parts in long, flowing hair, and polka dot trench coats everywhere.

I'm just saying.

I'm off to a wedding near Edinburgh this weekend. Wish me (fashion) luck?

Thanks Daily Candy.

Shuesday: Hello Petunia

Aren't these beautiful? I'm not sure how the clear part will work with the rest of the shoe, but I love the idea.

May flowers

OK, I know it's not anywhere close to May yet, but aren't these pretty?

Warning, I know the photos looks big, and these are indeed large earrings. But so pretty ...

Shuesday: Fairytale or


There's a lot going on here, but now that my walk to the tube features a lovely canal full of swans, ducks and moorhens, it just reminds me of fluffy spring duckings and cygnets.
