Me wearing: Silver Spoon Attire's 'Valentines' hat, with a denim shirt by Diesel and my Blauer coat.

A woolly hat isn’t exactly a typical spring essential but with the temperatures creeping up at a snail’s pace, I’m still wearing my Blauer parka most of the time! 
Plus when there’s headgear like this Silver Spoon Attire beanie around we may as well embrace it! 
The beanie hat craze hit fever pitch during the show season earlier this year with off-duty models, street-style photographers and fashion press all toping off their looks with the humble urban favourite. 
American Apparel’s basic version is a great high street buy (the neon styles proving particularly popular) but it’s Silver Spoon Attire’s decorative creations that I can’t get enough of, especially the red mesh bow beanie I’m wearing above, available exclusively at Browns

On the reverse of the hat: a pretty net bow.

The new Suzannah boutique: 3 New Quebec Street, London W1 7RE.  

London based designer Suzannah Crabb is a celebrity favoruite with over fifteen years in the industry under belt, but despite her high profile clients her new London shop feels like an undiscovered gem!
Suzannah’s offering of vintage inspired ready-t0-wear, bespoke made-to-measure design and bridal makes her eponymous label a unique one, of which I am a big fan.

I’ve admired Suzannah’s work for quite some time and am very excited to report that she now has a boutique in central London: a stones throw from Selfridges on New Quebec Street, W1. 

I popped in to see Suzannah's new spring/summer ’13 ready-to-wear collection (gorgeous prints and beautiful ’50s and ’60s silhouettes in lemon yellow and oyster hues) but couldn’t resist a sneaky peak at the wedding dresses too, which I have to say are absolutely beautiful! I love the ‘Kaleidoscope’ white silk dress (see below), perfect for a contemporary city wedding.

Whilst I was there Suzannah altered my red silk cocktail dress (from a few seasons ago) to make it a perfect fit, it was such a luxurious experience having the designer herself fit my dress. I cannot wait to wear it now!  


Elegant silhouettes: new in at the Suzannah boutique.
