The return of the bullet bra?

Last Friday, I made a brief appearance on all 40 BBC local radio stations as part of the Georgey Spanswick show. Prompted by a Daily Mail article* by Sandra Howard on the supposed return of the bullet bra - or at least the more pointed shape that was popular in the mid twentieth century -... Continue Reading →

Topshop Archive Collection

Last week I popped into Topshop at Oxford Circus to buy a gift card as a birthday present for my teenage niece and I spotted some clothing with a delightfully retro label. You can imagine my joy when a closer look revealed that this was a cute mini collection inspired by items from their archive!... Continue Reading →

‘Renaissance’ by 51 Degrees

This Monday evening we're giving the traditional festive dinner party a makeover at 'Renaissance', a 51 Degrees event in London Bridge. 51 Degrees is a series of events put on by food-geeks, for food-geeks.

My lingerie holy grail is something with a lot of coverage for my bottom (and good wide suspender straps where required), but with a more modern plunge style bra. Much as I... Continue Reading →

Review: Wonderbra ‘Dots Chic’

A few weeks ago, when I was at the Littlewoods lingerie bloggers event, I fell in love with a gorgeous new lingerie set from Wonderbra. Part of their Glamour collection, the Dots Chic set has a balcony bra and (rather unusually for this brand) high-waisted knickers in black with my favourite pattern... polkadots! In addition...

The Chap Olympiad 2013

On Saturday 13th July 2013, I attended my first ever Chap Olympiad. Celebrating "sporting ineptitude and sartorial prowess", this annual event from those splendid fellows over at The Chap magazine has been on my radar for quite some time but, sadly, I have always managed to have something else in my diary on the weekend...
