My New Favourite Design House: HALSTON HERITAGE.


Legendary American label Halston launched its hip diffusion line in 2009, and has since garnered a cult following amongst style-setters like Sarah Jessica Parker and Chloë Sevigny. The epitome of Studio 54 glamour, Halston Heritage evokes the brand’s timeless appeal reinventing archive pieces into effortlessly elegant silhouettes. Do like the original high-living Halstonettes, Bianca Jagger and Anjelica Huston and get retro-chic in asymmetric jersey dresses paired with oversized totes and clutches in silver, orange and cerulean.

SATC2 Is Coming.


…I think I’m actually about to burst. I’m so bored of tightly closing my eyes and sticking my fingers in my ears when anything slightly SATC related comes up on the TV, in conversation or in magazines. I’m DESPERATE to just see it now!

Best thing is, I haven’t got a clue what happens! Thanks to my dutiful and dedicated self of course. (Massive lie to self, I know they end up in the desert? And I know Aiden makes an appearance – SHOCK HORROR indeed. That’s definitely all I know though).

BEYOND EXCITED MUCH?

Not Just Any Doorstep…


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So, at the beginning of March I had an email from the lovely Charlotte Ward. Charlotte is a writer and was working on a Sex And The City article for Cosmopolitan magazine. She said she had found the photograph of me sat on the infamous stoop of Carrie Bradshaw’s humble abode and would like to write a small article about how I came about Carrie’s stoop – what happened before her stoop and what has happened since.

I was more than happy to oblige of course; so we had a telephone interview and that was that… Until the JUNE 2010 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine hit shelves this week of course;o

You can read the ‘Not Just Any Doorstep…’ article, by Charlotte Ward from page 121 onwards (I’m on page 122).

ENJOY!

(PS – Hands up who can’t wait for SATC 2?!)

JUDY PINK, by Tatty Devine.


I had this necklace made by Tatty Devine (www.tattydevine.com) for my graduation, last year, as a surprise:) It’s like my own version of the infamous ‘Carrie Necklace’ as worn by the wonderful Carrie Bradshaw herself in Sex and the City.

I must say, these necklaces are super fragile… as I found when it got caught in my scarf. Devastated at the snappage between the P and the I, and the fact that I knew James would be upset, I tried to get the necklace fixed without him knowing… I’m rubbish and told him everything.

I emailed Leigh at Tatty Devine, and the very next day my necklace was on it’s way back to Brick Lane, London, to be fixed. The customer service at Tatty Devine is beyond impressive. They charge £5 for items to be fixed, which I think is extremely reasonable. In addition, the day after, I received a phone call asking if I wanted the charm and chain replacing. I said ‘no’ as they were both fine and it was just a matter of the P and I being glued back together, professionally. Within a week my necklace arrived back on my doorstep, Recorded Delivery of course, I opened the beautiful packaging to find they’d actually replaced everything, the charm, the chain, and the lasercut lettering; all for £5! How good is that?! Very good is the answer.

I adore my necklace:) It’s very individual, and clearly personal to me. PLUS, its a talking point:) “Who is Judy Pink?” “My cheeky alter-ego” ;o

Ms. Judy Pink.
