Style Note: The Isabella Oliver Cape

Posted by London Darling

Yesterday was one of those cold and breezy days in London when you really need something warm and snug to wrap up in. And what better way to wrap up than in a cape. It's the perfect alternative to a winter coat. I received this beautiful one as a Christmas Gift from one of my favourite labels Isabella Oliver.

London Fashion Week Diary: BODYAMR

Posted by London Darling

The BODYAMR show was one that I was particularly looking forward to, and it was well worth the wait. The signature draping that I love still played a huge role in the collection as an abundance of luxe fabrics and beaded embellishment.

Beauty Buzz: Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare

Posted by London Darling

I recently changed my beauty regime to include the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, the Instant Boost Skin Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser. It's been just six days, and already I've seen a noticeable difference in the clarity of my complexion and the texture of my skin.

So far I've been highlighting all things pretty, stylish and London in this blog but today I'm starting a new series of entries under the label 'Internationally Stylish'. Here I'll feature luxe spots, great places to shop, beauty and fashion across the globe. I hope this new addition to the A-Z of contents will be of great interest, especially for readers across the seas and equally informative for UK based followers.

80s Purple Pictorial

My first internationally stylish entry is dedicated to 80's Purple - the incredibly cool online boutique making a big impact in the U.S., Japan, Australia and more recently the UK. Its cultivation of high style meets urban chic fashion over the last five years has made it a household name for the fashion forward.

Setting this boutique apart from the rest is the vast spectrum of labels hosted under its cyber roof. Some labels are well known, others more underground and cleverly brought to the fore. You'll find simple day pieces from the likes of Cheap Monday, party frocks by Charlotte Ronson, shape rich outerwear by Candy and Caviar and iconic accessories by Hysteric Glamour. This among hundreds of other brands.

I love the look book on the website too, capturing the uber coolness of the boutique and working as added inspiration for its customer base. Check out their campaigns and latest items at
