Are you looking for high street boots that are dupes for designer? Or do you want to rent out your favourite event dress? The fashion team can send some inspo.

Where are your favourite spots to shop at the moment? In need of summer work wear!!


What are some of favourite shoe brands that don’t break the bank? Thanks! X


Regatta help! Would love some help finding a dress for Henley Royal regatta. Everything I look at is too old or too young (I’m mid 30s). Needs to be below the knee and not be too revealing. Any thoughts?

On the high-street, Massimo Dutti is always a favourite for me, especially for smarter, work wear pieces! I also always rate COS and Arket x

Either Birkenstocks or TKEES are my favourite in terms of being comfortable, they’re mid price point. This year the high st have made some pairs that do look comfortable too, especially the leather styles on H&M and Mango.


Just wondering if one of you wonderful specialists can help me, I have just been on holiday and all my white cottons have become discoloured like straps on dresses and inner linings of dresses. Not sure if it’s due to sun screens or just the colour of my skin (hope not!) but after washing with normal powder and softer no change have you got any recommendations on how to get whites nice and bright white again please?

Thanks so much xx

I use the Vanish whitener and stain remover and find it to be effective! xx

Hi, I’m about to return to London for a visit having lived overseas for the last 15 years. Where should I head for great high street shopping? I’m hoping to get a couple of days to myself away from the kids to refresh my wardrobe. Looking for mainly casual/informal pieces. Thanks in advance.

Just to clarify I’m keen to know what area to head too. Batersea Power station, Regents Street, Sloan Square? Where can I spend a fun day hitting all the best shops, and pretending I’m still a local.

I would say Sloane Square and the Kings Road!
It has the best Zara in my opinion and also & Other Stories, Anine Bing, Ba&sh, COS, Free People, Ganni, Rixo, Maje, Me and Em, Jigsaw, Reformation, Self Portrait etc,
I also really like Westbourne Grove but this has less shops x

I’m a big of COS for their leather styles - loafers in particular.
