My Evening Hair Essentials

Mason Pearson hairbrush
Made in England, I have been using Mason Pearson brushes forever. With a price tag of $100/£70 you may think that is ridiculously expensive but not when you’ve owned one and notice the difference. The quality makes them last a long time, I’ve had my current one for 6 years.

Babyliss ‘Boutique’ curling iron
Salon hair has never been so easy.
This curling iron gives me the wave that Gisele seems to have naturally when she rolls out of bed.

Batiste ‘Dry Shampoo’

Last but certainly not least – this product has changed my life! I use think that I had to wash my hair every day for it to not look to greasy and shiny. This product has changed everything, now I was my hair every 3 days and use this on the days in between. However, as a brunette I urge other brunettes to stick to the original for all hair types, the one specifically for brunettes has a brown tint that get on your clothes, hands and towels. Using this dry shampoo, my hair has never felt better. Honestly, I don’t know what I would do without Batiste in my beauty routine.
PS – I’ve tried other dry shampoos and they just don’t compare.

Davines ‘Sea Salt Spray’ 100ml
I don’t use hairspray, instead I use this Davines sea salt spray as I want my hair to have movement. The smell is heavenly and makes you feel like for a second you are on the beach somewhere and the texture makes your hair really look effortless. I prefer the 100ml as it’s easier to hold and travel with, I find the 250ml just a bit too big.

Leopard. My Second Skin.

If I had to pick an outfit that most represents my everyday style, it would probably be this one. Leopard coat, striped top, ripped jeans, studded flat boots, all of which are my total ‘essentials’! I have 3 leopard coats, but this vintage one was a gem of a find on Ebay and gets the most wear of the 3 year after year because the fit, style and print just are perfect.

Each fall season you can guarantee a couple brands to carry a good LPC (Leopard Print Coat) like this similar one by Free People which isnt breaking the bank. This Equipment yummy striped cashmere jumper (British word for sweater) = a major smile on my face…. you had me at striped. I know its getting chilly in half of the world for rips but these distressed black Frame jeans, one of my absolute new favourite denim lines make me happy whenever I wear them.

And, the London weather at this time of year calls for good flat boots and you can never go wrong with a motorcycle boot like these Jimmy Choos.

Star Light, Star Bright

Good crewneck sweaters make life simple in the autumn months and once you have some basic colors (black, grey, cream)  a good print like a polka dot, stripe or stars like this Chinti and Parker. make your look a bit more fun. Equipment, Uniqlo and Chinti and Parker are some of my go-to’s for simple, effortless cashmere crew necks. If you want a cheaper option you can find nice merino wool ones on J. Crew, and even lower priced ones in a blended fabric on Topshop and ASOS.

To complete the look, a plaid shawl like this one from Douce Gloire is a piece you can wear daily over any outfit. No wonder Burberry is known to be selling out of all their shawls this season (get yours here). These structured leggings are AG Adriano Goldschmied and so comfortable and easy to wear. While you would never find me in Isabel Marant wedged velcro sneakers, I own these Isabel Marant suede Bobby’s in every color, this shade being my particular favourite.

The J.Crew earrings were a summer purchase. Some how J.Crew accessories never fail and neither do Thierry Lasry sunglasses, I own 5 pairs.

Get the Look:

Sweater: Chinti and Parker. Pants: AG Adriano Goldschmied, similar from Frame here. Scarf: Douce Gloire, available at Trilogy Stores, similar here.  Sneakers: Isabel Marant. Earrings: J.Crew. Bag: Celine, similar here. Sunglasses: Thierry Lasry

Metallic Electric Blue Jean Baby

Juliet-Angus-5Juliet-Angus-7 Juliet-Angus-9Juliet-Angus-1Juliet-Angus-6

There are very few trends in fashion that I won’t try, metallic electric blue skinny jeans by Paige Denim, sure, bring ‘em on. This is what I would call the “I’m married to a rock star look” as it’s loud and sassy, yet polished. The cream furry sweater keeps the vibe fun and neutralizes it from going overboard. I could also see a neutral coloured mohair cropped sweater or oversized fuzzy cardigan working here.

My no-fail, black pigalle suede Rupert Sanderson stilettos are paired with a studded clutch, which looks like it could be Eddie Borgo designed but is from high street brand River Island, who doesn’t love something that looks expensive but is not! 

Jeans: Paige Denim, available at Selfridges here. Sweater: American Vintage. Heels: Rupert Sanderson. Earrings: Jcrew, similar here.  Clutch: River Island, similar here. Sunglasses: Topshop

A special thanks to Trilogy, my destination for the best denim selection in London.

Poncho, Cape, Blanket Vest

Juliet-Angus-3Juliet-Angus-9Juliet-Angus-8Juliet-Angus-4Juliet-Angus-2Juliet-Angus-1Juliet-Angus-11
I’ve always been drawn to the style of the Wild West with fringe suede jackets, Aztec printed cardigans, Mexican ponchos, denim shirts and traditional Ralph Lauren pieces that make you want to live in Montana, trade your car in for a horse and dress ranch-chic every day. So when I saw Cara Delevingne walk down the Burberry AW14 catwalk last winter in a monogrammed blanket poncho, I knew that this was a trend I was getting my hands on. The Burberry Prorsum blanket poncho didn’t just catch my eye as it is just about sold out everywhere online except Bergdorfs. I may just have to put the new Burberry monogramming service to use and order one with my initials for my birthday.

In the mean time ,I have been wearing a lot of this brown Isabel Marant Idoa blanket vest, cape, jacket. This gem of a piece is extremely useful this season and seems to also be hard to find with only Barney’s NY having it in stock. My Maje boots have gotten a lot of wear over the last couple years and only look better as they get older, they go with everything, similar to the Isabel Marant dicker boot, what cant you love?  And to keep the look loose I accessorized with a Celine saddle bag and a mini fedora which I bought at Galeries Lafayette in Paris.

Get the Look: 
Dress: Isabel Marant, similar here, and a great one from Asos here.  Vest: Isabel Marant, similar here, and one from Alice and Olivia here. Sunglasses: Ahelme. Lipstick: Nars, Damned. Boots: Maje, similar from Topshop here. Hat: Purchased at Galeries Lafayette, similar here. Bag: Celine.
