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)...

LFW Day 2 - The White Snake

LFW Day 2 – The White Snake

No this is not a Flashback Friday to my favourite Naromode collection, this was my theme for Day 2 of London Fashion Week. Who would make a drop waist, snakeskin halterneck so practical? Scottish Fashion Award winner Hayley Scanlan, that’s who. This dress has given me all the cost per wear a girl could ask...
LFW Day 1 - The Breakfast Mermaid

LFW Day 1 – The Breakfast Mermaid

It is hard to believe that London Fashion Week is over and although it’s only my second season at the LFW rodeo, its another one I will never forget. I am currently swiftly hamming this out whilst on a pit stop in Brighton so I can’t quite get into the details just yet, but I...
Good enough to eat.

Good enough to eat.

First there was the chicken, then along came the egg. No, I’m not talking old wives tales, I’m talking handbags. It was these items which first sparked an obsession within my wardrobe, one which has only grown since I spied the A/W catwalks. Sure, it was only a matter of time for the high-street to follow...
Daks and Ducks.

Daks and Ducks.

You know when a piece of clothing develops a second wind? I have owned this stunning red blazer from Daks London for over 10 years and I think I have only just now found out how to wear it. It was one of our (then weekly) jaunts to TK Maxx, me and my Mum would...
Tees and PVC on the Disaronno Terrace.

Tees and PVC on the Disaronno Terrace.

Following its success during a four-week run in London, The DISARONNO Terrace hit the road taking its one-off series of summer parties north to the wonderful Lulu nightclub in Edinburgh. Of course myself, Bee and Honey Pop hit the train to go for a much needed catch up after her mini moon. Disaronno Sours at the ready… For...
Aye, Aye, Eyes on the back of my hands.

Aye, Aye, Eyes on the back of my hands.

Looking for a new way to treat your jazz hands? I simply cannot get enough of all the new styles DIY Nails are churning out at the moment! I am pretty useless when painting my nails myself (I am all fingers and thumbs) so when I headed for my monthly trip to Swoon Nails, of...
Getting Fruity with Cleo Ferin Mercury.

Getting Fruity with Cleo Ferin Mercury.

Accessories. Some people are scared of how to style them but really they are just the ticket to transform any outfit. When I first lay eyes on the work of Cleo Ferin Mercury I knew that her fun sense of style would fit perfectly within my wardrobe so I was excited to get right in about her...
Snakes and Leathers.

Snakes and Leathers.

It’s not often you get a champagne escort to the capital for a fancy pants party, so when you do dammit dress for the occasion! This was pretty much my thought process when choosing an appropriate outfit for the Jenners Edinburgh International Festival Party within one of the oldest department stores in the country. Forget...
Orange Happy Hour.

Orange Happy Hour.

When Clinique asked me and Bee to a private party within a terrace house during the Edinburgh Fringe we didn’t quite know what to expect. Stepping out of a taxi and seeing apricot tape lead the way to a garden full of orange balloons, fun flavoured drinks and even more props completely sent us away into...
