The Bling Ring

The world’s most elegant woman, Coco Chanel, was said to have advised the following when dressing with accessories: “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off!” However, when faced with a veritable Aladdin’s cave of remarkable, standout 20th century costume jewellery, I couldn’t decide what I liked best, let alone what I would want to […]

January blues…. reds, yellows and greens

The Urban Dictionary defines ‘January blues’ as “the funk that you enter when the holiday season is over”, writes Johanna Bolhoven.
