I bought my first pair of Sass & Bide jeans from the designers at their Portebello Road market stall in 1997.
Almost twenty years later I have a wardrobe full of dream coats, sequin jackets, Aztec print – watching their Spring/Summer 2013 collection at Linley House on Friday night I realised I may have to get another wardrobe – I wanted all of it.
Sharp shoulders, lean pants, white magnolia brooches, sequin trim, black and white piped, panel dresses, split pants….dreaming of them all.

Renya Xydis, Hair Director for Cloud Nine created a textured, playful and relaxed ponytail that’s both romantic and rock chick in one. Here’s how to give your pony a tousle texture.
Step 1: Begin by brushing out the hair and create a side part towards the left side of the head.
Step 2: Once the hair is free from knots, section hair off and lightly iron it from the roots using a Cloud Nine Wide Iron set at 125°C. This will add shine into the hair and also smooth out any kinks.
Step 3: Sweep hair back into a ponytail at the nape and secure using an elastic wrapped around several times.
Step 4: Allow a few loose pieces to rest out of the elastic and fall softly down the side of the face.
Step 5: Using your Cloud Nine Micro Wand wrap small sections of the ponytail around the barrel one at a time holding for two seconds and release to create a soft curl.
Step 6: Repeat this step until all sections of the ponytail have been curled then allow hair to cool.
Step 7: Gently shake out the curls and loosen with your fingers.
Step 8: To finish the look, texturise the sides of the hair gently and finish with hair spray.
