Gucci eyes

I love Pat McGrath's make-up for Gucci's Ready to Wear 09 show.

I've not worn blue eye shadow since the 80s, but I'm inspired to give this amazing look a go - fab party eyes:

What to wear

Evie top ten

As the wedding season fast approaches, it's nice to see that our pretty Evie dress made it to's 10 best 'What to wear to a wedding' list.

As they say:
'Not everyone wants to show off their arms, even if the sun is out, which is why this Evie dress from online boutique is one of the site's bestsellers. Easy to wear, but stunning nonetheless, wear it with sparkly flats or a pair of satin Louboutains.'

Thanks to for the mention!

New shoes!

We've just taken delivery of our first mini-collection of heels today. Admittedly, it's only a small-but-perfectly-formed collection of two styles, but both feature so many fabulous details that we think we've got all your summer heel dilemmas covered:
Chrissy is a leather summer sandal on a solid block heel in ever-useful tan. It features a double ankle strap and subtle emboss pattern on the criss-cross front. This is the perfect daytime shoe, which looks great with anything from summer dresses to shorts, jeans and wide-leg trousers.
Heeled sister to our popular Ruffle ballet flats, Rachel is a shimmering silver-grey satin shoe with a platform heel, T-bar, ankle strap and generous ruffle pom-pom on the toe. Going to a party or wedding? These beautiful shoes are the perfect way to finish off your outfit.

I hope you like them!

Before and after

It's certainly not all glitz and glamour on an Anusha photo shoot! Here's a 'before' shot of our model, Monica, leaning on me (surely it's some kind of optical illusion that's making me look so ridiculously small!) as she changes into a pair of wellies, perched on a steep road on a chilly February morning in Bath:

And here's the end product - Monica in our fab woodblock print mac (minus the, er, clutter!):


A big thanks to all involved in the shoot: Louise, Meg, Monica, Nichola, Joby and, not forgetting, baby Hector!

Summer's here!

It may not be very warm outside, but at Anusha we're celebrating the launch of the first part of our summer collection. Here are a few of my favourites in store this week:




Lots more lovely clothes, accessories, jewellery and gifts to follow in the next few weeks.

Gilty pleasure


Whenever we can make it, Mr Anusha and I head along to an auction that's held every few weeks in a warehouse near Bath. I still haven't managed to complete my set of mismatched vintage chairs for round the kitchen table (six down, two to go), but a couple of weeks ago I did manage to get this sweet little late-Victorian gilt settee for the living room, seen here with the lovely Monica.

Luckily it was late in the day and there were only two of us bidding - I managed to get it for a bargain price. It's in pretty good nic, but I'm planning to get it upholstered in a more subtle material (perhaps a printed silk). My justification for buying it? Well, it's already paid its way as a handy prop for my latest photo shoot - look out for it online this week!

A sneaky peek

Here's a behind-the-scenes peek at some of the images from Anusha's new summer collection, shot in my house.

We're working hard to get the first batch of goodies online this week, with updates throughout the summer...
