The Numbrella

I've lost count of the number of times that I've had my Umbrella up and its blown inside out meaning that you get to where ever you're going and you look like you've been dragged through a hedge backwards. Well, fear no more! The Numbrella is here! The world's first hands-free umbrella which claims to never turn inside out in high winds designed by Alan Kaufman. It sounds good in theory, but I'm not sure if this look will exactly catch on. Here's why.

The Numbrella, £30.

There's no point buying gorgeous clothes if they're simply slung into the corner of your bedroom. Wardrobes can become a real feature of the room and innovative storage techniques add a quirky twist. I've found hat boxes to be really useful for storing just about anything - bags, jewellery, old photo albums. Be creative!

L-R: Provencale Wardrobe, Laura Ashley, £1575. Toulouse Wardrobe, Marks and Spencers £1,190. Reece Wardrobe, Marks and Spencers £349. Devon Wardrobe, Laura Ashley £900. Vintage Rose hangers, John Lewis, £5.

P for Pearls

I adore Pearls. Wear them with an LBD for a classic look, or even with a t-shirt and jeans. They just ooze feminism and charm. How do you wear yours?

Alexa Chung

Lately, I've been seeing pictures of Alexa Chung everywhere and isn't she just turning into a great style icon? Her style is the effortless, even messy sometimes, style that is so hard to do right. She's presenting the new programme Vanity Lair on channel 4 on Sundays and her outfits always look so great! Here's some of my favourite outfits she's been wearing around and about:

I saw this gorgeous Ted Baker ipod case in an apple store a few months ago for £30. On the off chance, I went looking on the internet for it yesterday and its £10! Stylish and practical.
