Addiction five: COCKTAIL RINGS


A good cocktail ring can be hard to find and I should know as I’m always on the lookout for one. They can always be counted on to help make an outfit especially if you are wearing something simple.

I came across an amazing one while shopping online the other day at
Net-a-Porter.com, a favourite fashion websites of mine.



This Arty Aventurine ring by Yves Saint Laurent is to die for and I have fallen in LOVE. With this ring you can add a bit of luxury to a casual day look or be bold with a stunning evening dress.

The key is to only wear one statement piece at a time or you will look like a mess or even worse a try hard! Remember to wear it with confidence plus attitude and you’ll look amazing!

Addiction two: GLASSES


For someone who’s wore glasses nearly all her life I am thrilled to SEE that specs are back in fashion! I always HATED wearing glasses; they were big, heavy and definitely NOT cool. I had some pretty shocking pairs as a kid back in the 80s. As soon as I was allowed contacts I never looked back until now.

I have some exciting news.... attention all four-eyed geeks.... to be truly cool this season you MUST have a pair of specs!

If you NEED glasses or even if you don’t, get several different pairs to help vary your look and style. It’s a great way of completely reinventing yourself this season.

I LOVE the current trend of taking a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses and putting in optical lenses for that really bold 50’s look. This also allows you a more wide variety of coloured frames. It’s been so popular that Ray-Ban started producing optical versions of their sunglasses.

They’re even appearing in fashion shoots on models as a key accessory in magazines like Vogue and Grazia! All the designers have a range; including my personal favourites Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Prada and Valentino.


Glasses featured on me above include Balenciaga, Dior, Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani, Gucci and YSL call 01423 520303 for local stockists.
