I'm honoured to be one of the first interview subjects for new website, Today I'm Wearing. Founded by the people behind You Magazine and Metro and with the fabulous Pandora Sykes at its helm, TIW is definitely one to watch. Thanks for the feature, Pandora and TIW!

A couple of weeks ago, I attended my boyfriend's Studio 54-themed work party. After a mad rush to find The Perfect Dress (my requirements: 'something in which Bianca Jagger would have had ridden a horse') I found this shimmery thigh splitted number from ASOS Marketplace. Sadly the thing was completely see-through so I had a second mad panic to find nipple covers. And let me tell you, finding last minute nipple covers is NOT easy. Anyway, it all worked out in the end and I went to the ball, complete with a seriously sparkly Jimmy Choo clutch.

I was having too much fun to remember to take any good photos so if you want to see a full-length I'm afraid you'll have to do with this very blurred picture. Soz.

(Wearing: Vintage dress, Jimmy Choo Sweetie bag and Terry de Havailland wedges - borrowed from my friend, thank you Olivia!)

My New Year's Eve outfit will be considerably less ~glamorous~. I'm thinking a little sixties swing number with polka dot tights and some sort of beehive situation. What will you be wearing?

First things first, apologies for the mini hiatus. I've been busy with work and various projects and have neglected Canned Fashion. I'M SORRY OKAY. But hopefully this little Christmas break will give me time to post a little more regularly.

Secondly, how INCRED is this Christmas stocking by Charlotte Olympia? Yes it's £175 but if I had this I wouldn't even care if there was anything inside (maybe).

I'm feeling so festive this year. Today I wore a red dress with red lipstick, nails and soles (Loubs of course) and someone called me Mrs Christmas. Today in the office we spent all day listening to Otis Redding Christmas songs and it was GLORIOUS. Only one more day of work and then it's CHRISTMAAAAAS. Yay.

Thanks LK Bennett!

Can we just talk about how amazing this cat ear beret is? It's fuzzy, it's a beret and IT HAS CAT EARS. I think I'm going to get it in red - should I, should I?

You it's love - and I mean REAL love, lurve, L.O.V.E. - when it's stood the test of time, and this couldn't be truer of me and my Miu Miu. It started as an impromptu fling would... I was lonely and single and I'd been eyeing up the further reductions in the NET-A-PORTER sale, when I saw those dual-colour sequins. I knew it was irrational - I needed a classic black tote, not a spangly little evening bag. Before I knew it I was gaily clicking 'confirm order' and Miu Miu was mine. It started as a brief affair - a second date here, a third date there. Before I knew it, we were going steady. We went everywhere together, and not just after sun set - brunches, work, hair appointments...

Two years on, we're going strong. Other bags have come and gone - hell, a PS1 nearly came between us - but Miu Miu knows that I've always got a soft spot for sequins, day or night.

(Wearing: Miu Miu Bag o' Dreams, LK Bennett blouse, Vila gilet, Dorothy Perkins jeans, Isabel Marant Willow sneakers.)

There's something about my new Christian Louboutin Freddy flats that make me wanna dress like Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face.


Wearing: H&M polo neck, Cheap Monday jeans, Etoile Isabel Marant coat, Christian Louboutin Freddy flats and vintage Chanel backpack.


I'm not usually one to blog about fashion news but this video was too good not to share. The cat's out of the bag! Kate Bosworth is the star of Topshop's #whosthatgirl campaign and what's more, they've got her to SING. And she's wearing ruby slippers. Feeling festive yet?

This weekend, my boyfriend and I decided to get festive and head to Southbank's German Christmas market (having sworn against Winter Wonderland after spending a fortune last year on overprice rides, mulled wine and tacky stalls). This market does have its fair share of tacky stalls BUT entry is gloriously FREE, there is some lovely food on offer and regardless, wandering along the Southbank to the tune of Nat King Cole is guaranteed to make even the most hardened Grinch feel very, very Christmassy.

I wore a Selected Femme coat, Dorothy Perkins jeans, Isabel Marant trainers, Proenza Schouler PS1 and some ear muffs I picked up at the market because I was freezing.

MAHOOSIVE Christmas tree.

Manmade beach has its very own captain*, and he SALUTES! *I have a hunch he's not a Real Captain...

I LOOKED at stuff.

My boyfriend showed me the wonders of Gabriel's Wharf, the cutest little collection of shops and cafes...

...including a pop-up version of AMAZING shop Suck UK, which boasted such treasures as BOW TIES FOR DOGS.

And that was that.

These are a few of my (new) favourite things...

New Louboutins! I got these Freddy flats on sale... LOVE.

New undies! Love this lacy set by Maison Close from my one of my favourite online lingerie boutiques, MEME. Get the bra here and the knickers here.

Love these little fashion books (Chanel, Schiaparelli and Prada) by Carlton. My new bathroom book stack.

A leeeetle bit obsessed with jewellery designer Samantha Wills. Love the pavé earrings (available here and here) and have been wearing this chunky necklace non-stop with my new LK Bennett blouse.
