It has been a very busy week from perfecting the outfits for my Royal Ascot styling clients, styling fashion shoots and navigating the returns from these shoots. 'Returns' is the process named to returning samples which I receive direct from the brand/designer. Once the shoot is finished everything is steam cleaned and packed into tissue to return for other magazines and editors to use. Sometimes there can be one worldwide sample so the competition for particular popular garments can be fierce. For high street bands there are normally two samples but all samples are carefully used, documented and returned immaculately. 
After completing all the returns I finished work early to bring you my #shwishlist.

I have found the lovely site, established by Rachel Roberts, when Rachel emailed me last month. Her brand houses fabulous trans-seasonal  clothes, suitable for all occasions, in classic shapes with feminine details, all purposefully designed to flatter a woman's body.  What's more, everything is made in the UK helping to sustain British manufacturing. 

This summer invest in this halter neck maxi dress, featured in slate blue and also available in black. This modal jersey dress is the most versatile summer garment. Wear over a bikini or one piece for beach or pool comfort, or for cool summer nights team a loose knit over the top. You can also shorten the hem and accessorise with a stole for a casual dinner outfit. One dress with multiple style options.

This week I have discovered three great jewellery brands which I know you will love as much as me.  One in particular is located at the top.The Nadira 18ct gold plated chalcedony bangle by Caroline Creba is a beautiful aqua gemstone bracelet, totally romantic and one of those pieces which will work with everything. Be warned though, when you visit Caroline's website it's impossible not to fall in love with everything as it was a hard task finding only one piece to bring you!

The Launer London Handbag is a constant for Her Majesty the Queen and has accompanied her since the 1960s. While she is not alone in her patronage for Launer, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench and the Duchess of Cornwall have all admired the British brand, they are affectionately known as The Queen's handbags.

However on a recent garden party at a friends house, I was happy to witness three different Launer Handbags worn on the arms of 20 something girls. They are indeed exquisitely crafted bags which come with an impressive price tag and this is why they are attractive to the younger generation.  Launer is becoming an understated show of status, wealth and luxury for the discerning woman. My favourite is the Traviata Handbag, a kelly-style bag, in calf leather finished with the signature Launer rope logo hardware. 

To allow you a closer view of these covetable pieces, I have pinned everything I have featured to my #shwishlist pinterest board. If you would like to recommend a brand or item, email: or tweet me with the hashtag #shwishlist.
