marks and spencers accessories

I was recently invited to preview Marks & Spencer’s Autumn/Winter 2011 accessories collection via a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. We’re talking tea, cakes, Prosecco, and a room full of shoes, jewellery, handbags, hats, and more at ridiculously affordable price points.

With all of the accessories split into four categories – Boy Meets Girl (doctors bags galore!), Nordic Narnia (frosted yet cozy), Global Traveller (gorgeous, colourful items) and Wilderness (faux fur for all!) – you would expect there would be a category you didn’t favor as much. Not the case. All four were full of fashionable, quality items.

Set up in homage to Alice in Wonderland‘s ‘eat me‘ tags, everything was tagged and asking you to feel it. With reason. I urge you to go to an M&S now and stroke your way through the accessories department.

Grace Coddington MemoirGrace Coddington, creative director of Vogue, is working on a memoir. Coddington and former Men’s Vogue editor in chief Jay Fielden have been confirmed as the pair to write the autobiography by Coddington herself. “We’re just starting, and I think it’s going to be a really fun project…I’m hoping it’s going to be very rich in fashion history. It’s more than just about me.”

The book will cover Coddington’s early life in Wales (woohoo – Welsh women!), her modeling days in Sixties London, the car accident that changed her career path and her ascendancy through fashion’s ranks as a stylist and editor at British Vogue and, later, its American counterpart. View Post
