Chunky knits

It’s cold outside, ladies and a chunky knit is the order of the day. It’s the perfect throw on that goes with just about everything. We like our knits oversized and this vintage gem from our archive is bang on!

We added a little glitz and glam for this festive season with an 80′s embellished belt but this knit would still look amazing on its own. It’s just that fabulous.

An oversized chunky knit is great at creating an effortlessly chic look whether you go for neutral tones or brights like we’ve done with our second vintage look.

We paired this vintage pretty pink number with a subtly floral vintage silk scarf and our go-to staple, vintage denim.

Review: Eggbreak

This petite gem of a place opened in Hillgate Village, Notting Hill a while back.

We’ve been a few times and every time they outdo themselves. If you like eggs and haven’t been then you need to make it your next stop.

Its chic, understated décor gives it a casual charm that’s great for brunch with the girls.

And yes, as you would have guessed from the name, it’s an egg based menu but they do have some non-egg delights on the menu if eggs aren’t your thing. Enjoy.

The Statement Vintage Cape

A cape should definitely have a place in your wardrobe. They are a great way to add a bit of drama to your look. This statement vintage cape is a real star and we love how it looks with denim – just gorgeous.
