Frock on Friday: Boden

Today’s pick is the Marilyn dress from British fashion online retailer Boden. The Marilyn dress proved so popular last season that Boden has brought it back for autumn in an pretty magenta and red print. It really pops!

I’m excited about today’s Frock on Friday, as I’ve had fashion designer Reuben Reuel’s Etsy shop De-Mes’Tiks NYC in my favourites folder for a while now, just waiting for its own dedicated blog post.

The final episode of the third season just aired here in Australia, and I was reduced to a sobbing big girl’s blouse. Like Mad Men, it showcases authentic mid-century fashion, although London’s […]

Frock on Friday: Mad Men Style

‘Bravo,’ indeed. I’ll borrow from Bert Cooper’s (profound) brevity to tip my hat to Mad Men‘s creator and producer, Matthew Weiner, for a rather wonderful finale to series 7.0. Mad Men is a superb example of today’s gilded era of television brilliance, with shows such as Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones and Orange is the […]
