 Romantic Dinner Dates: Style Tips To Steal The Show

Last Updated on 21st January 2020 With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, restaurants are about to be packed to the rafters; full of couples celebrating their relationship, and potentially some who are just meeting for the first time! It doesn’t matter which of the above categories you fall into. You may have been with your partner for decades, or you might be about to meet them for the first-time courtesy of the now-common dating apps. Regardless, looking your best is key, and through today’s post we will take a look at some of the easy fashion tips you can implement, whether you are hitting somewhere special like Covent Garden for Valentine’s Day or simply your hometown.  Go for the compliments We all have some go-to outfits in our wardrobe which tend to draw compliments. Suffice to say, this is what you should be wearing on these occasions. This isn’t necessarily to grab even more compliments (although this is of course a great side effect). Instead, it’s about oozing confidence. If you know that a particular outfit often draws admiration, turning to this on your dinner date is likely to put your mind at rest and allow you to concentrate more on the situation in question. Stay comfortable In a similar vein, staying comfortable is also of paramount importance. What’s the last thing you want when trying to feel your best? Struggling to walk in your footwear or wrestling with an uncomfortable dress. Find something that makes your feel utterly fabulous, but also allows you to enjoy the whole night.  What about the casual date? Of course, not all dinner dates have to be in sophisticated, high-end restaurants. Nowadays, at a push, dinner dates can even be in small establishments (even coffee shops). So, if yours falls into said category, […]

7 fab Fashion Month essentials!

Last Updated on 4th February 2014 For some people, February is all about Valentine’s Day, but for all the budding fashionistas in the world, the month of Feb is all about fashion. New York Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week – all four cities which have their own distinctive and irreplaceable style! So, dressing for Fashion Month – regardless of the city or how much show-watching you’ll actually be doing – has to be done right. You need to get the dressing for the chill and dressing stylishly balance just right. We think we’ve got it sorted with our seven suggestions below; what say you? 1. Ah the great Fashion Week footwear dilemma! Do you go for sky high heels to complement your cute dress and to be the same height as the rest of the ladies and models or do you go for comfort? Nine times out of 10 we would have gone for the former, but since flat shoes are loved by the likes of Alexa Chung and Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel, we think we’re going to go for flats this season. Plus just think how warm these boots will be? 2. The bag is probably one of the most important accessories. If you’re a high fashion magazine editor, a celebrity or someone who won’t be working at Fashion Week, by all means go for an adorable little clutch bag that fits a mobile phone and extra lippie – especially if you’re being chauffeured around from show to show. But for the rest of us who have to slum it and walk to shows, a good sized bag to fit everything from iPads to chargers to make-up bags to an extra pair of flats to food (yes we all need to refuel […]

Wining and dining a loved one in Champagne

Last Updated on 15th August 2014 There are few things in life more romantic than a glass of Champagne. Whether it’s the elegant glasses, the lightness of the bubbles, or the sound of the popping of corks, Champagne has entered the public consciousness as being synonymous with the glamour and romance. So to show your loved one how you feel, why not plan a trip to the Champagne region of France? Planning ahead can get you some excellent champagne deals, saving you money to spend on wine and food while you’re out there. A region rich in vineyards, famous for its world class cuisine and only a stone’s throw from Paris – Champagne is arguably the most romantic destination in the world. Food According to the Michelin Guide, Champagne has a multitude of fine dining options. Restaurant Chez Max is a small, local restaurant in Epernay, which serves seasonal food and changes its menu every week to ensure that everything is as fresh and in season as possible. If you want to get a sense of how the locals eat, then restaurants like this are the best place to do it. The quality of food throughout Champagne is so high that one of the best options is to simply allow yourself to get lost in one of the towns or villages in the region. Find somewhere off the beaten path and let yourself get swept away with the charm of the welcome and the food. Adventure is the key to romance. Drink Of course, there’s no way you can travel all the way to Champagne without trying the wares that made it famous. The locals refer to the region as ‘La’ Champagne, and the drink as ‘Le’ Champagne. It’s simply not possible to get a bad glass of wine in […]

Peek Rosie Huntington Whiteley’s Valentine-inspired lingerie collection

Last Updated on 21st January 2013 It shouldn’t take a Hallmark holiday to tempt women to splurge on sexy underwear, but nevertheless, Rosie Huntington Whiteley has used Valentine’s Day to her advantage by creating her latest Autograph for Marks and Spencer collection around Cupid’s favourite day of the year. “As this collection is launching so close to Valentine’s Day, it was more important than ever to make sure that all the new colours complemented all skintones,” Rosie said. “We decided upon a gorgeous palette of blush pinks and warm neutrals which every woman will love to wear.” Rosie’s spring/summer lingerie collection for Marks and Spencer Autograph features sumptuous, soft and romantic pieces that would be perfect for V-Day (and every other day of the year!) and has even expanded into nightwear, as you can now find gorgeous babydolls and nightdresses in there too.

Erin O’Connor’s former assistant is found guilty of stealing over £10,000 from her

Last Updated on 5th May 2011 Erin O’ Connor‘s former personal assistant, Michelle Knox-Brown, has been found guilty of committing fraud, and sentenced for her unforgiving crimes against Erin earlier this week.

Elle Style Awards 2011 worst dressed: Emilia Fox

There’s an obscene amount of pressure to look as cool as you can at such a fashionable event like the Elle Style Awards, and it obviously overwhelmed actress Emilia Fox. Seperately, they are both lovely pieces but attempting to mesh a very casual T-shirt – designed by Erin O’Conner for Valentine’s day – with a dressy full skirt such is definitely something best left to the more confident fashionista. The look is too haphazard, let down again by messy hair and mismatching jewellery. Better luck next time. Let us know your thoughts by voting in our poll below! [poll id=”32″]

Dressing Up (or Down!) for Any Occasion

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 Getting dressed for a night out is always something of a conundrum (for me, anyway). Where am I going? Is it raining out? How far do we have to walk? Am I going to an Irish pub or something a little more swanky? These are all things that I attempt to answer before I head out the door, but I’m generally fairly successful as long as I know where I’m going. So last week, my wonderful boyfriend told me he was going to take me out for Valentine’s Day, and … and those were all the details I got.
