why i do what I do.....

I am now Fashion Director at Glamour magazine but following on from the success of my weekly column in the Sunday Times Style magazine I thought I would bring this page to life every week and also give you the chance to comment. This page is not for me to dictate what you should be wearing but to offer ideas on how to put wearable outfits together. Its not what you wear it's how you wear it!

To celebrate the upcoming Fashion Week I want to give you the chance to WIN this  Oswald Helgason for Aldo Rise bag that I wore to NYC Fashion Week last season. Conveniently for this post BLUE has become the colour of the new Spring/ Summer season (ranging from navy to pastel blue tones) and what a better way to introduce this into your wardrobe than with a strong graphic printed bag.   Leave a comment below or retweet the blog for your chance to WIN, deadline Saturday 1st February, good luck!

TIP… this season mix and match your shades of blue and the use the brightest tone to accessorise with such as this bag but  for a new season update try clothing in pastel shades instead of navy but keep the accessories simple and don't match up your shoes if you have gone for a brighter coloured bag stick to black or white heels or flats for a cooler look
