Theresa May's Escada Power Suit


There's a new power suit in town, and it belongs to the Prime Minister.

Theresa May first wore the black and white number from Escada in the Commons chamber a few weeks ago. Eagle eyed readers might have spotted it, but it took a little while to track down. She wore it to Liverpool this week- and we finally got a closer look!

The colour block suit puts Theresa May in the company of Scandal's Olivia Pope, who is seen wearing the striking blazer in recent promos for the television show. It's also popped up on Annalise on How To Get Away With Murder.

Theresa May is no stranger to Escada's mighty fine tailoring. The PM owns several blazers and skirt suits from the German brand, and it is stocked at her favourite Henley boutique, Fluidity.

We particularly love this Escada blazer for its monochrome scheme and sharp lines. Another great choice!

Equality, LBC and Liverpool: Theresa May's week


Theresa May was in London and Liverpool this week, launching the review into race disparity in the UK and unveiling a memorial for a fallen police officer.

On Monday, the PM visited the Dunraven School in London, meeting with students and staff. May debuted a new custom black jacket from Daniel Blake- the military, long line tailoring is superb! She teamed it with black trousers and the Delicious leopard flats from Russell & Bromley. She teamed this great look with a string of pearls. Later in the day, May answered questions about Brexit in the House.

On Tuesday, Theresa May launched the Race Disparity Audit at Downing Street. You can read the report and its findings here. Later in the day, she participated in a live phone in on LBC. The PM debuted a new dress (we're still on the hunt!) teaming it with a crisp white Peserico blazer and an oversized grey fabric necklace and matching bracelet.

On Wednesday, the PM took part in Prime Minister's Questions, wearing an old faithful steel grey Vivienne Westwood trouser suit. Bubblegum pearls and the LK Bennett leopard kitten heels completed this look.

On Thursday, Theresa May travelled to Liverpool, visiting the Royal Liverpool Hospital's Transplant Unit. She also attended a ceremony unveiling a memorial to PC Dave Phillips in Birkenhead before attending some party events.

May wore her new black and white colourblock skirt suit from Escada. Eagle eyed fans of Scandal may recognise it straight from Olivia Pope's wardrobe. The PM teamed this power look with her embroidered Issa x LK Bennett kitten heels and pearls.

Theresa May's new Pazuki scarf


Regular readers and Theresa May fans will know that the Prime Minister has a few Pazuki scarves in her wardrobe.

Well, she has debuted a new one! The Prime Minister wore the Painting School scarf on her visit recent to Tallinn, keeping warm on an early morning visit to a military base.

The bright and punchy design features a mix of purple and pink hyacinths as well as other abstract flowers and patterns. It's the perfect design to brighten up a grey winter!

You can shop Pazuki's new collection here.

On Tuesday, May participated in several media interviews and party events. The PM recreated the outfit she wore in Florence- a black and olive striped blazer from Piazza Sempione, olive cropped kickflare trousers, the oversized Amanda Wakeley chain bracelet and necklace and the custom leopard Kitty heels from Charlotte Olympia.

And on Wednesday, May addressed party delegates in her leader's speech. May opted for the Tulip wool windowpane check dress from Daniel Blake and the now famous Frida Kahlo bracelet. May also debuted a new pair of kitten heels- the Humbug, embellished with bees (for Manchester!) from Russell & Bromley and wore her Celtic Treasure ring.

A great conference wardrobe focused on fantastic British fashion! Bravo Mrs May! 

Theresa May's Manchester shoe message


Amidst the talk of Theresa May's speech on Wednesday one thing has been overlooked - her new pair of shoes from Russell & Bromley!

Named Humbug, the rich teal shade courts are embellished with gold dots and crystal embellished bug decorations. One bug nestled amongst the shoe is a bee, perhaps a nod to the city and people of Manchester where this year's party conference was held.

Whilst much has been made of the Prime Minister's choice of a Frida Kahlo bracelet, these shoes carry a greater message of strength, determination and solidarity. Great choice Theresa!

Audrey Hepburn at Christie's


Every now and then an auction comes along and totally captivates the imagination (and bank accounts!) of watchers.

The recent Audrey Hepburn auction at Christie's falls into this description. The sale took place in London last week, passing the £6million mark. Items from Hepburn's professional and private life were on sale, with fans flocking to the showroom to see the items on display.

Dresses from films like Charade (my favourite,) and Two for the Road were on display, as well as items like Hepburn's Givenchy trench and luggage. Pairs of beautiful handmade ballet shoes, scarves and costume jewellery were also available to bid for.

Hepburn's effortless look was captured in many hundreds of photographs from films like My Fair Lady, Sabrina and Breakfast at Tiffany's - as well as her personal copies of scripts from her entire showreel.

Christie's staged the lots perfectly, providing plenty of space to analyse each object and better understand Hepburn as the performer and the person. One can see why the auction attracted global attention- congrats to the lucky bidders!

And for those of you who couldn't make it to London to view the lots, enjoy this picture laden post!
