I discovered the Burlap People a few months ago on Instagram and the use of burlap for their designs caught my eye. I’d previously associated burlap with gunny sacks and love the idea of transforming this rugged and utilitarian fabric into aesthetically striking designs.

I love my teeny tiny bought from Mango shorts. When I wear them, my male friends ask me whom I’m trying to entice? And my husband thinks they are skanky. But I don’t get it: how can denim be promiscuous? As someone I know to be very sensible (shout out to my friend Dolly) once said: “They are shorts, and shorts are meant to be …

  Shirt-dresses: the ultimate cool-girl go-to spring outfit, but it is also a lazy but fashion-curious girl’s best friend.
