Girls that wear Glasses - Alain Mikli Life Lessons.

Girls that wear Glasses – Alain Mikli Life Lessons.

Metal frames. These two words have been completely exempt from my glasses vocabulary for the past 10 years, but somehow have re-entered with a flash of a designer. I only recently came across the work of Alain Mikli but when I found out  his work was regularly seen on the...

Shut the Front Door & Grab your Hollyhood!

Hoods. Who would have ever thought this would be such a necessary staple for your wardrobe? Not me thats for sure, until I found my beloved Chouchou. Lets call it just over a year ago, I met the wonder that is Silvia Pellegrino. Stylish, passionate, dramatic and Italian – she...
Like, OMG!

Like, OMG!

So you know Betty is never one to abbreviate unless the situation has great cause for it. This is one of those situations. When I first lay eyes on the teasers for Isolated Heroes I was completely taken in by the colour pallet, playful shapes and textures. Their past collections...

READ AW ABOUT IT!

Today I came into work – quite the thing – and as soon as I sat down at my desk the phone rang. It was the other half of the Office AKA The Dada Burds (and Chris) ringing to tell me that my One Month One Dress Challenge had made...

Easter Bonnet.

Easter Bonnet.

It’s Easter Monday, I’m sitting on my stoop with the laptop on my knee, sun on my legs and a fresh pot of coffee by my side. I am now officially feeling springy! I love Scotland in Spring, people get confused and think that its summer, although everyone knows the golden rule there is no...

And the Collaboration goes to…

I’m a sucker for a good high street meets designer collaboration. Every year like clockwork you will see me flat white in hand, perching patiently along the H&M wall on Buchanan Street hoping to be at least within the first or second ‘band’ slots to shop the collection. Hold onto your handbags ladies and get...
Betty tries sports luxe.

Betty tries sports luxe.

For a while now I have been awwing at girls looking all kinds of good in trainers. I have never been a trainers girl, like, ever. I would have my token pair for P.E and a pair of converse for good measure. This why it felt so alien to me when I took a stab at...

We started with the basic ‘Get to know me’ 20 questions tag and I’m quite proud that there were only a few tangents...

It is not every day you find out that a high street giant found success on our own turf, so I was thrilled when Ted Baker asked me to an intimate dinner with eh… Mr Ted Baker (AKA Ray Kelvin) and company to hear all about the brands return to Glasgow, and their stunning new...

Searching for Denim.

Searching for Denim.

Double denim is something that I have tried and failed to accomplish on many occasions. I either end up looking like some sort of cowgirl reject or an extra from a bad reality TV show. Last week I popped down to Gap in Glasgow for a Sunday Brunch, and finally found how I can work...
