New pastures...

Dear all,

Hope you're enjoying the Easter weekend?

Just wanted to let you all know that I am moving over to wordpress and that you can find me at The website is live and almost complete which is very exciting! Feel free to check it out. I should be up and running very soon - a figure of speech! Although I am expecting baby number two in a month's time, I am planning to continue blogging and also showcasing the beautiful items I have for sale. I hope you will continue to like what I am doing and follow me.

As ever,

Kisses, Julianna

"On a cold and frosty morning..."

Brrr.... It's minus two degrees this cold and frosty morning and I am well-wrapped up on my way to work! I find it difficult to be stylishly dressed for work when "the bump" is this big and it's an added challenge when it's this cold. Today, I am wearing my Topshop maternity jeans, vintage tan boots, navy and cream Whistles scarf and camel Zara coat. Under the coat, I have layered a Whistles navy waffle knit tunic over the top of a long navy Whistles jersey. Hope you are all managing to stay cosy!

Roll on Spring!

As ever,

Kisses, Julianna

Happy feet!

Being almost six months pregnant with my second baby, I am increasingly frustrated as I pour over alluring, colourful Spring/Summer fashion images in magazines. I find myself coveting the most impractical items of clothing for a woman in my condition! Is it the fact that I can't wear these styles of clothing at the moment that is making me want to wear them even more?!

Out of habit, I have been looking for investment buys for Spring/Summer but it is difficult to unless the item is an accessory! I refuse to spend a fortune on maternity wear as it would be a waste of money and it is a risk investing in Spring/Summer clothes as I will have a post baby physique and will not be my body shape/size until I lose the extra baby weight! In the meantime, however, I have decided to cheer myself up with these very cosy Ash "Vanna Aviator" trainers, lined in sheepskin, which I managed to buy half price in the sale. They look lovely with my skinny Topshop maternity jeans and they give me happy feet!

As ever,

Kisses, Julianna

Coffee to go please!

Today is a workday and I always try to take the opportunity to dress up a little as I spend the majority of my time living in jeans! I am wearing a khaki bronze silk top by one of my favourite designers Malene Birger; paired with high waisted black tailored trousers by Whistles; my black resin necklace from Whistles that I can't live without and black patent kitten heels from LK Bennett. I just need my morning coffee and then I am all set to go! "Buy! Buy!...Sell! Sell!"

As ever,

Kisses, Julianna

Sneaky sneak preview...

As promised, here are a few of my favourite images from the recent shoot (for my on-line designer dress agency) to whet your appetite...

The above is of a stunning classic navy cashmere coat from Giorgio Armani, teamed with a red patent leather Louis Vuitton bag. All 100% authentic and 100% up for grabs!

This is a beautiful jacket and skirt from Ralph Lauren. Very classic. The buttons of the jacket are jet black diamante and are exquisite. I have matched the jacket with a nude silk Humanoid racer back cami. Wear the jacket separately with skinny jeans, a t-shirt and ballet pumps. Very classic and very gorgeous.

How delicious is this? This jacket is from YSL's Rive Gauche A/W 2003/4 runway collection! Need I say more...?! This purple velvet jacket with lilac silk sash is to die for. I wish I could keep this for myself! Dress it down with jeans or wear over a floaty silk mini dress. Absolutely stunning.

Hope this leaves you hungry for more...! Will let you know when the on-line shop is up and running. Have a lovely weekend!

As ever,

Kisses, Julianna

On yer bike!

Hallelujah! Another beautiful hot, summer's day! After a hard day's work and early start, (Bea got me up at 6am!) the idea of unwinding in a beautiful pub garden with a glass of chilled rose was very appealing to say the least. It didn't take much persuasion to convince my friend and colleague, Mikhaila, to go for an after work drink. The Horse Guards in Tillington, West Sussex, has a magical garden tucked away and in it I found a stylish old bicycle and used it as a prop. I was so taken with the garden that I'd like to use it for a photo shoot. 

Today, I am wearing a sheer nude Acne asymmetric sleeveless shirt over a champagne coloured lacey silk slip; layered over skinny black J Brand jeans; my gold Prada sandals and favourite Raybans. Perfect for floating around work... or riding a bike!

As ever,

Kisses, Julianna

The sun has got his hat on!

"The sun has got his hat on! Hip hip hip...!" At last, today feels like a summer's day. I don't usually like to get my short, solid legs out but I was so overjoyed to see the sun that I gave in and put on a playsuit!  After a very hectic week, we finally spent the day together as a family. We took the dog for a long walk this morning and then drove up to London and had a very enjoyable afternoon celebrating a friend's birthday lunch in a charming pub garden. Oh happy days! 

By the way, I'd like to introduce you to my daughter Beatrice (mostly known as Bea). As my husband was attempting to take some pictures she clambered up me as she wanted to be snapped too! I am wearing a playsuit from Whistles; a black leather plaited belt from Jigsaw; a gold chain with a french horn from Whistles; Rayban sunglasses and my favourite sandals which are from Prada and come out every summer. (Bea is wearing a floral dress from Cath Kidston and her red Crocs!) 

Long may this lovely weather last...

As ever,

Kisses, Julianna
