Who are you calling too big? Meet the larger than life supermodel Saffi Karina who is determined to make curves mainstream. Her skin, eyes and hair are the colour of chestnut honey, and she carries off her challenging outfit of a totally sleeveless and semi-backless black silk shirt, teamed with skin-tight jeans, with the aplomb of the professional model. She is unarguably beautiful. And, to civilian eyes, she is also very slim – 5ft 10in and a toned size 12, with finely muscled arms, a neat waist and a perfectly flat stomach.
British bag maker Tula – famed for its flap-over, organiser bags – has launched a brand new collection. The bags, made from leather and sporting magnetic fastening, are simple, practical and very “English”. Available to buy online at www.tula.co.uk
Spell and The Gypsy Collective is a cool little boutique brand run by sisters Elizabeth and Isabella out of their studio in Byron Bay, Australia. I love their grungy hobo style combined with feminine chic, plus all the feathers, leather and turquoise are gorgeous!
Their latest work is the Last Days Of Summer shoot which you can marvel at here.

Flicking through the Stylist magazine this morning, I spotted this bright jolly double page spread by Boden featuring model Mila De Wit. The campaign combines photographer Heather Favell’s trademark vibrant contrasty style with Boden’s bold colour blocks and prints, making it a real eye-catcher. Click for a larger image.
London’s Jermyn Street tailor and shirtmaker T.M.Lewin have launched their Autumn collection. Although catering mainly for men, it is a little known fact that the company also makes an extensive line of shirts and suits for the business lady. In fact, the collection launches with over 150 women’s shirts, offering more options to add personality and sparkle to the office uniform.
