Puma & tweed

18 Oct

I love tweed shoes for men and women and am excited to see top footwear brands incorporating tweed in their designs.  I just found this visually great little video showing the Puma El Ray tweed & Leather lifestyle shoe.  I do love the look of this shoe but look around as there are loads of great alternatives available. Please note I am not promoting the online shop shown in this clip as I have no knowledge of them.

Vintage from Goodwood Revival 2010

10 Oct

I love vintage clothing! Vintage is a great way to achieve classic style with your own modern twist.  It can also be a great way to buy quality tweed at great prices.  Watch this video of portraits from Goodwood revival 2010 and bask in the style.  If you are a vintage doubter I hope it changes your mind!

You don’t have to be Cheryl Cole to look fierce in a tweed hat.

Cheryl Cole wore this cute Eugenia Kim Keiko checked tweed hat and since then ladies have started to go tweed hat crazy.  It is available from Fashion Beans priced £61.30.

I think that a great tweed hat is a vital component to this seasons wardrobe for women of all generations.  I love this Trilby available for £20 from Asos.

It is getting to that time of year when scarves start to be worn both for warmth and style.  I am often asked; What is the best ways to tie a scarf?  I love this video of Italian Rugby ace Luke Mclean showing 5 different ways to  tie a scarf.  The scarf tying techniques are great and Luke Mclean is gorgeous.  Remember 100% Scottish Lambswool scarves are the best in the world!

Andre 3000 tweed style

4 Oct

I love Andre3000’s mix of British classics  and preppy american style.

Watch the fabulous Hey Ya, admire the great style and put a smile on your face.

This tweed dress has stunning bead work at the top of  pretty v-neck sleeveless bodice. The tweed is made from 70% viscous but the 30% wool will make it a warm and stunning dress.  I think Laura Ashley have produced a great dress and not bad for £100.
