I Heart Liebeskind Bags

I first came across Liebeskind handbags somewhere online and found them utterly swoon-worthy. Try as I might though, I couldn’t find them in any shops. It’s a German label and ze Germans get it so right in the fashion stakes as far as I’m concerned. Anyhoo, I’d daydream over the bags online sometimes, then when...

Crazy For Cos

I have found it hard to find clothes I actually like for a while now. When I do like something, it’s out of my price range and I’m really not a fan of cheap, fast fashion. I like great quality clothes that last. I don’t know why it took me so long to find out...

I Don’t Know What to Wear!

I love clothes. I really do. I went to the London College of Fashion, I studied fashion journalism, my mother was a weaver who had her own clothing line when I was younger – it’s pretty much engrained in me to be one stylin’, profilin’ mofo. I love checking out other people’s style (unless it...

Europeans Dress Better Than Americans: Part 2

One of the most popular posts I’ve written on this site was one I did a couple of years ago about how Europeans dress better than Americans. It seems to be something people Google a lot: ‘why do Europeans dress better than Americans?’ Or ‘Americans dress lazy’ or other such terms often lead to that...

Bangs Meets Stella McCartney

Last week, I was invited down to the Stella McCartney store in Chelsea to meet the lady herself and discuss her new season collection for Adidas. Full disclosure – I’m a bit of a Stella fan girl. Her Spring/Summer 01 collection for Chloe is still one of my favourites, so I was a little giddy...

Leeds Digital Fashion Week

Fashion Weeks are loved by many and loathed by some. Let the naysayers yap on about how frivolous and irrelevant it all is, but there’s no denying the influence these shows have on the way we shape our personal style, whether we like to admit it or not. But if you’re someone with an interest...

The Knomo Alice Bag

Well it looks like there will never come a time where Knomo bags don’t make it onto my favourite things list. NEVAH! I don’t know how they keep bettering themselves, but they do. Yes I know, I’ve written about them before here and here, but their Autumn/Winter range is now out and this bag, the...
