Barbie's Favourite Season!

If there is one item you are thinking of buying this month be sure to make it a dusty pink leather jacket.

It is one of this seasons hottest colours and the fashionistas are loving it!

£45 - Miss Selfridge

£200 - Malene Birger

You have to be in it, to pink it!


What A Girl Wants

Valentines day is creeping up and I have a sneaky feeling there will be a number of proposes over the weekend (eek). At the risk of sounding pessimistic, I can't say it is the most original of days to ask someone to marry you but I guess it's the most romantic (in a very cheese-on-absolute-toast kinda way!!)

Even so, for all those that are either

a) in no way shape or form ready to get married
b) in no way shape or form ready to propose
c) in no way shape or form in a relationship to even begin to contemplate marriage

listen carefully as I have hand picked my top five finger accessories that one just has to be seen wearing this season and there is no 'will you marry' involved!

£180 - Alexander McQueen

£260 - YSL

£110 - Kara Ross

£225 - Roberto Cavali

£175 - Swarovski

Engagement rings are sooo 2009!

Happy All


2010 is SO in

Just got home and am bursting at the seams with excitement... We had a meeting with the buyers of Matches this evening and went through the Look Book for Spring/Summer 2010 - one word - WOW!

We have such fabulous pieces coming in that I feel the urge to share each and every one with you... In fact, I think I will do just that!

Over the next few weeks, I will be sure to let you all know about the new designers we need to listen out for, the key pieces we need to start purchasing and the heirloom bag we need to invest in.

For now though, I will leave you with a key term for this season... Laid Back Luxe.

No more does the capsule wardrobe involve a pair of plaid trousers, a staple blazer, a white shirt and an LBD - this year it has been re-invented and shaken up with the likes of a leather jacket, suede gilets, cotton shorts and logo tees.

Leather Jacket £480

Suede Gilet - £2,575
Balenciaga - Browns

Cotton Shorts £1,290
Balmain - net-a-porter

Logo Tee - £165
3.1 Phillip Lim -

It's time to put a twist back in to the classical.

Same time tomorrow
