Who run the world? ASA GIRLS!

Who run the world? ASA GIRLS!

The streets of Glasgow have not been quite the same since Abandon Ship Apparel launched in 2011. Since the two best pals started the company (drunk) slowly but surely you saw a progression of man, a man who could dress well. There are so many streetwear brands out there who...
Midnight Shooting with Betty, Chouchou and Nuala Swan.

Midnight Shooting with Betty, Chouchou and Nuala Swan.

Like most reasonably girly girls, I have always romantically dreamed of starring in my very own photoshoot. Flashing lights, lipstick on call, never having to worry about how your hair is sitting all the while wearing some amazing clothing. Who would have thought that my dream would have become true when...
Betty's #LinksHiddenGems

Betty’s #LinksHiddenGems

So the other night, myself and a few other bloggers headed down The Finnieston to meet with the lovely ladies and gents from Links of London. They were celebrating a new initiative they have with The Stylist showcasing their favourite #LinksHiddenGems across four cities in the UK and Glasgow was one...
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!

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!

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...
Wan Month. Wan Dress.

Wan Month. Wan Dress.

Hello there Swollocks! Betty is BACK! There has been a lot of changes on the other side of the screen but 2013 is the year of the change and I’m starting it with a brand new challenge…. When I saw the beautiful Bee Waits (sista from another mista Claire Stuart)...

That Primark Dress and Bonnie Beasties.

That Primark Dress and Bonnie Beasties.

When you buy a dress from Primark that you actually REALLY like, you always run the risk of it becoming one of those dresses that everyone and their Granny owns. A few weeks back I invested in this amazing sheer 70′s style shirt dress from our favourite bargain store, and for £17 it was the...
Whiter Shade of Pale.

Whiter Shade of Pale.

When an invitation comes through from Moet, you know it is going to be a fancy affair but when the dress code states ‘White Party,’ it puts the fear into every pale person who reads it. I am a colour worshipper and even though I have been sporting all things white recently (namely shoes and...
Beauty I See You Everywhere - Selfridges.

Beauty I See You Everywhere – Selfridges.

I can’t quite believe I’m just writing about this but a couple of months ago myself, Bee and Honey Pop were asked to get involved in a UK wide Beauty Project for retailer giant Selfridges. To even be asked to work with one of my favourite luxury stores was exciting enough, but the thing that really...
Betty joins the Topshop Fashion Forum.

Betty joins the Topshop Fashion Forum.

It is not everyday that you get asked to join a line up of industry insiders for one of your favourite high street brands, so when Topshop got in touch and asked me to join their exclusive panel for the closing of the Edinburgh International Fashion Festival, I was on it quicker than I could apply...
Comfort meets Cuteness - The Scottish Weather Dilemma.

Comfort meets Cuteness – The Scottish Weather Dilemma.

I find Scottish summer the hardest weather to dress for. It is the kind of place that you need sunscreen, a light jacket cover up, a cardie encase it is cold, sunglasses and a brolly and that is just for hitting the shops. We need to prepare for all kinds of things that the weather...

The streets of Glasgow have not been quite the same since Abandon Ship Apparel launched in 2011. Since the two best pals started the company (drunk) slowly but surely you saw a progression of man, a man who could dress well. There are so many streetwear brands out there who yea make a fine tee...
What the Duck?

What the Duck?

So last week I turned a year older. I have never been one to celebrate my birthday but being a very lucky girl, my lovely pals organised many a surprise for (old) Betty. One of my first surprises was a gift from one of my favourite local designers, Naromode. You may remember me gushing over...
Missguided and Local Bargains.

Missguided and Local Bargains.

I must admit I am one of the easiest people to sell to give me a coupin’,  sale or pop up shop and sure as hell I’ll be first in the que, handbags at dawn. There is nothing I love more than wearing a H2T sale outfit, walking out the door feeling a million bucks...
Shorts and The Glasgow Gin Club.

Shorts and The Glasgow Gin Club.

Scotland is fast becoming a tropical rainforest. It’s somewhat normal to consider rain, wind and shine when building an outfit in the morning so when the weather turns to taps aff (at 20 degrees) its time to get the legs out and the factor 30 on! I have always had a complex about my legs....
