Kendall Jenner, 2014, editorial, fashion, Kardashians, model So, I’d kind of forgotten about fashion week(s). I usually get completely obsessed for a few weeks and say ‘why don’t I work in fashion?!’ several times out loud to no one whilst frenziedly regramming Vogue’s FROW pictures. However, you’ll all be glad to know I’ve since moved on with my life – but not without this lingering thought: what the hell is going on with Kendall Jenner?

sustainable fashion challenge buy nothing new for a year second-hand vintage fashion I’m pledging to buy nothing new for a year.

There, I’ve said it. It’s out in the public domain now and I can’t go back. I’m committing to 12 months of only shopping in charity or second-hand shops for all non-essentially-new items (but not for, you know, like underwear and batteries – gross and useless in that order).

Why? Oh all sorts of reasons. Mainly because I want to see if I can turn my…

When the festival frenzy of summer subsides, the live music world takes a breather and eventually reconvenes for the autumn album spurt. September and October are always bumper months for new music, and 2014 is no exception.

I’m not enough of a full on muso to anticipate the arrival of many albums (if any at all) and my iPod is full of odd singles I’ve heard on the radio and downloaded in a fit…

As someone who has a fledgling manicure business, whenever we are approached here at Style & Then Some regarding anything nails-related, my eyes tend to light up. So imagine my sheer delight when we were contacted by the website www.bornprettystore.com.After a ‘quick’ browse (maybe an hour or so…) I felt as happy as a tweenager at a 1D concert. All my nail needs were finally under one very…

London Fashion Week passed you by? Here’s a handy round-Up

Burberry, catwalk, SS14, London Fashion Week
Twice a year, the fashion world descends into a chaotic merry-go-round of transatlantic showcases, whereby the style gods dictate the trends for a season that feels forever away. These displays are Instagrammed to death by the fashion chattering classes whilst we dutifully take premature notes.

Now unless you’re a committed follower and professional blogger, keeping on top of all these trends is…

What is the most prominent of all the autumn/winter trends, as decreed by the oodles of trend guides that land around this time of year? It’s gotta be the sixties fixation. Yeah, baby, yeah! I here you cry. Yeah, baby, indeed because this isn’t just a gentle whiff of the swinging era, there are some very obvious odes, not least the return of the go-go boots. This block-heeled boot was originally…

We’re looking for new writers to join Team Style & Then Some. Interested? Know someone who might be? Then get in touch.

And now, the second half of my Day Trips in the Lowlands series, in which my mother and I go to The Hague to visit the newly reopened Mauritshuis Museum, home of the painting which inspired Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Goldfinch.

This was less of a journey than last week’s three-hour drive to Antwerp, since my parents live in a town on the outskirts of The Hague, the city which…
