I created What to Buy Now to bring you a concise weekly edit of the items I really love, including pieces from the
high street, designer labels, vintage gems you can buy online and even charity-shop treasures. I'm constantly scanning the most stylish online stores, so you can feel safe knowing that you won't miss a thing.
I know that your fashion requirements can vary massively from season to season, whether you're looking for an immaculately tailored staple, an affordable sundress or the perfect pair of shoes. So not only will I cover all of the bases, but as an ardent believer in
mindful consumption, I'll also make sure everything I include will look just as fresh in a year's time as it does now.
Of course, I'll also bring you those pieces that simply set your heart racing in a way that only fashion can. This week's highlights include plenty of wardrobe gems, from a statement blouse to a vintage skirt suit. Scroll down to shop the buys on my wish list this week. You know what to do.
