TK Maxx Style Tour comes to Leeds

TK Maxx style tour, Leeds | www.angelinthenorth.com

We all know that if you're prepared to put the time in, TK Maxx is a prime place to find a one-off designer gem at a bargain price. The Leeds store on The Headrow is one of my favourites around because, well, it's huge. It also has a Gold Label section which is where you will ...

Make your own Brit-Stitch bag

Brit-Stitch launches

Brit-Stitch bags only appeared on my radar a few months ago. The company is only a year old but the bags' popularity has grown and spread quickly, and after my initial introduction I soon began seeing them everywhere. Made in Britain, these milkman-style satchels come in a rainbow of colours (the pretty pastels are my favourite). And ...

Maxi dresses for summer to autumn

Maxi dresses for day time: Asos stripe dress, Asos floral tie back dress, River Island colour block maxi dress, Oasis floral maxi dress | www.angelinthenorth.com

Slowly but surely, degree by degree, cloud by cloud, this exceptional summer seems to be deserting us. This is a difficult time to get dressed. I keep going out in just a T-shirt and finding there's a chill in the air, or the sun comes out and I'm having to strip off a layer by lunchtime. ...

Currently coveting: florals

Floral maxi dresses

Florals have been around for a while but they're everywhere this season. You may remember it was one of the key trends I picked out for spring and summer. They're even being worn head to toe - accessories and all - which may be a little much for me. I'm not normally one for bearing blooms but ...

Currently coveting: green

2013 spring and summer fashion trends

Marc Jacobs Spring summer 2013 bold stripes

Last week I shared Phoebe's take on the trends that will be big in weddings in 2013. There's a lot of common ground between wedding styling and fashion. So what are the big trends we're likely to be wearing this year? I've taken a look back at the styles seen at the SS13 fashion weeks - both on ...

A fun, flared, full skirt for the party season

olivia palermo in reiss full brown leather skirt

Suddenly I'm yearning for a fun, full, flared skirt - which is pretty out of character as I'm normally a straight skirt kind of girl. Puffballs - yuck. Tutus - yikes! Maybe it began with the onset of the festive party season, but after thinking more about it and searching the net this desire is firmly ...

Searching for the perfect leather jacket

Black asymmetric leather jacket by Muubaa at Liberty

I’m in the market for a black leather jacket. I know, I’m hardly breaking new ground in the style stakes. We all know the leather jacket is an autumn/winter fall-back must in every wardrobe. But nice ones are expensive and the truth is, there’s never seemed to be the right time to drop a couple-of-hundred-or-so quid on ...
