Sunday 7 – Slinky Satin Edit

Oct 14th, 2018 Small Talk, Sunday 7 Bean 19 min read

Hello, Welcome to another Sunday 7 – possibly the hardest one I’ve compiled to date. And by hardest, I mean, most difficult… I feel somewhat sombre and heavy-hearted in the knowledge that I am a teeny-tiny cog in the massive machine that has contributed to the awful environmental destruction of our planet. All in the name of fashion FFS. Utterly ridiculous! Before I launch into…

Sunday 7 – A/W 18 Checks and Tartan Edit

Oct 7th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 17 min read

Hello, And welcome to another Sunday 7. I’m looking at checks and tartan print this week, which are meant to be ‘big’ this autumn/winter… {… although, when have they ever *not* been big during autumn-winter?!} Whilst I normally shy away from animal print and large florals… checks and tartan are a firm favourite for me. Here’s what I’ve picked this week: 7. H&M – Checked…

The Aran-Cable Knit Edit

Oct 5th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 8 min read

Hello, A quick, cheeky Friday blog-post to review the Mango Cardigan (£49.99) I ordered this week… It arrived today and went straight on: a good sign, right? I hadn’t been expecting much, because the smallest size available was “XS-S” which from experience, normally means sizing will be generous. After all, look at how boxy the cut of the cardi is: It’s made from a 100% mix of man made…

Sunday 7 – Autumn Winter Stripes and how to wear them when the weather gets cooler

Sep 30th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 19 min read

Hello! September has just flown by, hasn’t it? For some reason, I’ve been thinking about stripes a lot lately. Perhaps because the summer was *so* hot, I didn’t wear my beloved Breton tops as much as I might normally wear in a ‘normal temperature’ British Spring… But with September being as mild as it has been, I’ve worn my Bretons a few times recently, and was…

Sunday 7 – Getting Autumn Ready

Sep 23rd, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 19 min read

Hello! How’s your week been? I’ve spent most of it up to my eye balls in paint: egg-shell and the regular wall stuff… what ever it’s called?! Oh and wall-papering. And as such, I am very tired. Right through to the marrow of my porous, brittle, little bones. But there’s always time for a quick fashion scroll of an evening, not matter how bloody-shot and…

Sunday 7 – 70s Fashion Trends

Sep 16th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 16 min read

Hello! Welcome to this week’s Sunday 7 where I’m talking all things 70s. One of my favourite decades given it’s when I was born… all the best people were born in the 70s*. {*Joking obvs} When I think of my 70s childhood fashions, I think of big collars, big cuffs, big texture (i.e. corduroy, shaggy furs), big cable knits, big checks (tartan), big block (stack) heels (mum’s…

Sunday 7 – Autumn basics

Sep 9th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 16 min read

Hello! And welcome back to my first weekly Sunday 7 after a month off!  Hope you all survived the summer holidays? I’m loving getting back to a normal routine: the kids are back at school; the never ending sales have *almost* ended; there have been proper New Season drops in the shops & the temperatures have finally dropped enough to make it acceptable to talk Autumn fashions….

Sunday 7 – New-in on the High Street

Aug 5th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 12 min read

Hello! And just like that, the first couple of weeks of the school summer holidays have flown by! How are you coping with the holidays or working in this gorgeous, proper summer that we’re having? Shops are full of the dregs of the sales, with some fabulous bargains to be had. But I’m done with looking at summer stuff: I go on holiday in a…

Sunday 7 -What’s New?

Jul 29th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 17 min read

Hello! I’ve been kind of stuck in a rut with these Sunday 7 blogposts: new in stuff *is* finally creeping into stores / on their websites, but given the heatwave, it’s been kind of hard to even *think* about clothing for cooler weather. Until today. A temporary drop in temperatures, bit of wind and rain… and I’m right back on it! So… in a “I…
