It’s not only the birds that are going cheap this spring – fashion is too. For so many great new ideas and at such an early stage in the proceedings, they seem to be asking us to pay very little. So we can show you wear-every-day clothes at your price to our heart’s content.

Meet the new fashion collector. She will be about for a long time. Her lipstick is red. She wears only navy, ivory and grey, but so cleverly that there’s no limit to the flattering effects she can compute. Her clothes are so simple and beautiful. It all looks easy. She spends more money on her clothes than most woman, but, when they’re searching around for something to wear, she’s already perfectly dressed. When their clothes are beginning to look wrong, hers are right. So in the end, she probably spends no more than they. Here’s how she does it…

Hat by Edward Mann. Red and cream jacket by Lee Bender for Bus Stop
Mombasa, Kenya. A Beautiful, private beach. Warm, too. Ideal for sunbathing and swimming in the raw. But few of us are that lucky! We have to make do with crowded beaches and need a cover-up – like a one-piece. Difficult to be sexy? Not really, with these beautiful fabrics, beautiful shapes. These pages, shot in Kenya, prove our point. The one-piece does give you lots of man-appeal – and freedom. Beachrobes can be sexy, too. In fact, the ones we found are a definite plus! So check out your wardrobe – and welcome summer. This can be your year to add originality to those busy beaches.

I have just listed a beautiful Annacat dress over at Vintage-a-Peel. It’s almost identical to one worn by Janet Lyle (co-founder of the label) in 1968 and is just about one of the most spectacular dresses of all time. Midnight blue velvet, trimmed with ostrich feathers. I ask you, what is better?
There are many other incredible new pieces up there, so please do go and check them out. Treat yourself! Get someone else to treat you! It’s Christmas, a time for treats and gorgeous frocks…
