Elizabeth Taylor’s Collection To Be Auctioned At Christie’s

Elizabeth Taylor’s Collection To Be Auctioned At Christie’s

If there’s one thing I immediately think of when someone mentions Elizabeth Taylor – other than her incredible love life and many marriages – it’s her diamonds, her huge, shiny, sparkly diamonds. Which, of course, are inevitably linked to her tumultuous love life… An icon in every sense of the word, Elizabeth Taylor was definitely one of the last remaining stars from Hollywood’s Golden Era, a time of seemingly neverending parties, the couture gowns, the jewellery, the intriguing love lives […]

Peekaboo Vintage Launches First Standalone Boutique

Peekaboo Vintage Launches First Standalone Boutique

Vintage emporium Peekaboo Vintage has just launched its first standalone shop near Carnaby Street. Until now only Peekaboo Vintage was only available online or at its concession in Topshop Oxford Circus, but it’s great to see the amazing selection of top-notch vintage all together in one purpose made space, with lovely dressing rooms to try it all on in a relaxed atmosphere. There’s an amazing selection of vintage must-haves, like Chanel and Ossie Clark, but it’s not all old stuff […]

Vintage Chanel Jewellery sale on Achica.com

When an email drops in my inbox with the words Vintage Chanel in the subject line, you can bet I’ll be on it faster than you can say Karl Lagerfeld. Achica.com, the new members-only online store which offers these amazing 48hr flash sales, usually in the luxury lifestyle department (think Cocosa, but with furniture and kitchen appliances), will be doing a sale of Vintage Chanel jewellery next week. Since becoming a member of Achica (it’s free), they tempt me every […]

Guts for Garters, part 2

Guts for Garters, part 2

You may remember that a few weeks ago I was invited for a sneak preview of new concept store Guts for Garters (see post here). I immediately fell in love with the quirky selection of items the founders Rachel and Cassie had chosen. Guts for Garters is a wonderful mix between art, design and fashion, curated like a gallery and always based around a certain theme, which is “The Royal We” for its first few weeks. Although after the preview […]

New Year, 3 New Online Boutiques!

New Year, 3 New Online Boutiques!

Inspired by my previous post and by a few great emails I received over the past few days, I’ve decided to highlight 3 more new independent online boutiques that have just launched for the new year. 1: HOWKAPOW Every single day I get hundreds of emails – mostly generic PR mailouts, newsletters I didn’t subscribe to or emails promoting products that have obviously no relevance to this blog. The delete button is a very active one around here, believe me. […]

WilliamVintage

On Monday I went to a press preview for the WilliamVintage sale happening in London this Thursday (04/11/2010). I don’t claim to know much about vintage, but even I can see that the pieces in this sale are all top notch. WilliamVintage is the brainchild of interior designer William Banks-Blaney, who carefully selects every single piece in his sales, and his love for the product truly shows. Thursday’s sale boasts everything from original Balenciaga to Ossie Clark, Pierre Cardin to […]

Vintage At Goodwood

Vintage At Goodwood

On Saturday I went to the first ever edition of Vintage at Goodwood. I was slightly apprehensive about the whole thing, as rumour was, the organisation was a big ol’ mess. I found the PR company very unhelpful, heard stories from people who went the day before, basically… it sounded like it was somewhat of an overpriced, overhyped new festival with no goods to back it up. But… I was wrong. This was by far one of the best new […]

Juno Says Hello

Juno Says Hello

My rail Hi there. It’s me again. It’s been a while, I know… I’d like to tell you I had a perfectly good reason for not updating in over a week, but I don’t. Recently, I’ve been suffering from a bit of a blogging burnout, wondering what I’m doing all of this for, why I put so much of my time and effort in it. I’m not complaining, not one bit – I know how lucky I am – but […]
