Luella wears her Deputy jacket on BBC2's "Britsh Style Genius"

I am thoroughly enjoying the BBC2 series "British Style Genius" at the moment. Last week's was fantastic with Vivienne Westwood, John Galliano and Alexander McQueen doing their rebel bit. Do you remember McQueen's bumsters when he first showed them?

Anyhoo, last night was "By Royal Appointment" - The Country Look. It was very British indeed. I want a Barbour now! The programme celebrated all things countrified - tartan, tweed, oilskin, florals, headscarves and brogues. A great look if you can pull it off. Luella Bartlley was talking about the inspirations for her collections - classic British that has "gone wrong"! I love Luella's pieces - we've got in stock the Deputy jacket that Luella was wearing in the interview - amazingly well cut, with a touch of humour in the shoulders. It's £325 and is a great price for a jacket that you'll wear for years and years.

It's getting nippy out there!

Don't know about you but I love this time of the year. I love the smell in the air -kind of clean and fresh with a bit of a whiff of bonfire in it. Lovely. I also love the clothes that are about at this time of the year. I'm loving wrapping up in the huge American Vintage scarves we've got at nola and wearing the truly amazing Trisian chunky cardi from Malene Birger. We've also got lovely toasty Emu ugg boots in store now. Great price - £130 for the hi boots and just £110 for the lo boots.

We've also got some lovely perfume and candles in from Ortigia - stunning packaging, very sophis.

We're off to a Hallow'een party on Friday night so I'm looking for a bit of a fancy featherwork for my hair. Will let you know how I get on.
