Now,we've had a chance to pour over the photos from the Emmy's and pick out your favourite looks (see previous post), we wanted to give you a helping hand in achieving the mega-bucks looks with just a click over to our website!  

January Jones was amongst my favourite looks - I loved that she went for a jumpsuit instead of the usual dress, the colour looked great against her hair and skin and the brooch attached at the waist was a lovely finishing touch.  I will definitely be taking styling tips from her and using our starburst brooch in a similar way once the Christmas party invites start rolling in!!

It was the birthday of this Lovett Lady during the week and it made me think of giving (and getting!) the perfect gift. One can never really go wrong with jewellery as a gift for any occasion - it's just a matter of knowing the recepient well enough to broadly get it right!

So, as a quick guide:

Colour - what metal colour does she usually wear? A quick look at her watch or wedding band would give a clue. Most ladies like to match their metals and may have a variety of watches to wear with different outfits (or is that just me..?)

Clothes - what colours does she like to wear? Classics with denim? Brights?...

Firstly, the 60's and 70's.  Many designers followed on from Spring with heavy references to past decades, with...

The party season is here and if you are inundated with Christmas party invites and social get togethers over the coming months do not fear, we have been scouring the high street to help you find that perfect dress and more importantly, how to accessorise it.

If it's a halter neck you are after it is best teamed with big statement earrings and a bracelet if you love your jewellery. There is no need for a necklace with this style as the neckline is high.

Maybe you would rather a delicate lace dress. As the dress itself is very detailed make sure you accessorise with simple jewellery and if the dress is a colour other than black...

We love looking back at illustrations used in the 1950's on adverts, packaging, cards and wrapping paper. It's so lovely to step back in time and imagine how life was like back then. Why not wrap your gifts in vintage wrapping paper this year? The Christmas wrapping paper was so cute and innocent. We have included some of our favourites here.

Unfortunately vintage wrapping paper is hard to come by but fortunately we have designed some lovely vintage inspired gifts ideal for Christmas!
