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

http://wp.me/p1sRO9-3D1

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…

Style and Then Some is looking for new writers

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

Since we launched in 2011 the team has waxed and waned as we’ve taken on new bloggers and others have started new jobs or courses or moved away. At the moment we’ve got space in the schedule for a couple more writers, so I thought I’d do a shout out to see if we have any budding…

I went to see The Goldfinch, the painting Donna Tartt’s book is based on, and it was glorious

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…

With its rich textile history and no shortage of shopping options, Antwerp is the perfect location for a day trip or weekend filled with culture, beautiful architecture and retail therapy.

How to make a bumblebee flapper dress fancy dress costume

Bee fancy dress bumblebee honeybee costume girls fancy dress womens fancy dress black yellow striped dress flapper dress fringed dress 1920s how to make sewing how to sew
When I chose the fancy dress themes – yes, multiple themes – for my 30th birthday party I already had one of my costumes in mind. The three options were bees, pandas and Star Wars, and I’d decided I would take a black dress and somehow apply yellow stripes so that it was bee-like, but not a crazy/skimpy/boiling hot outfit I’d regret the minute I put it on. I had my black Bardot dress(I bought two…

Snip Happy: The Return of the Fringe

Snip Happy: The Return of the Fringe

hair jane
Last week, I got a fringe again. I am a massive supporter of the full fringe; I always feel so much more ‘done’ with a fringe, without ever devoting more time to my hair than a quick rinse in the sink in the morning and a blast with the hairdryer. The rest of my hair can be an utter mess, but if the fringe is good, it covers all manner of sins.

I originally grew it out for the summer (natch,…

Why I finally gave in to the midi skirt trend

Why I finally gave in to the midi skirt trend

ASOS Midi Skater Skirt, £20 black
I really didn’t think it would last. No, I don’t mean the relationship known as Kimye, or the three-day tan I picked up in Ibiza – I’m talking about the midi skirt trend. I thought these full knee-length skirts were frumpy, swamped anyone under 6 foot tall and would disappear from shops faster than leg-warmers in the mid-noughties. I was very much SKIRTING the issue. But I was wrong.

It’s been a…
