Like Jumpers? Take a look at Barielle Autumn 2010 Collection, Style in Argyle

Before we get to winter we have to deal with Autumn, and Barielle’s offering for the season is called Style in Argyle.

Yes it’s jumper based. I love a good jumper. I am still in search of the ultimate geek chunky knit jumper. Want to see my favourite jumper from my childhood? Wait til the end of the post – it’ll be worth it, I promise.


The collection is inspired by stylish Argyle fashion colours.

From left to right:

Cashmere or Loose Me – a soft brown with copper pearl

Tight Knit – a purple brown crème; keep your hands as pretty as the fallen leaves with

Aura Angora – a royal gold crème

Unraveled Red – a burnt rust crème

Wool you Marry Me? – a plum brown crème

Cowl of the Wild – a mushroom taupe crème.

(I love these names, much more than OPI’s). I love the look of Cashmere or Loose Me, Aura Angora and Cowl of the Wild!

Celebrity manicurist Pippa Hebden suggests spicing up your manicure and create an ombre finish by mixing two to three drops of your favourite Shades polish into a clear top coat, polish, let the coat dry and then polish from the middle to the tip for that autumn foliage feeling.

This collection launches on September 11th. Fancy any colours?

Barielle polishes are free of formaldehyde, tolune and dibutyl-phthalate. Each polish costs £8 and you can buy from or call 020 828 01023 for info.

Ok want to see my Marks & Spencer jumper, my 12 year old pride and joy, with matching pants?

Are you wearing glasses?….#alttext#

Mother, WHY?! I wasn’t allowed to smoke, drink, take drugs, have boyfriends, yet I was allowed to wear this?!

That’s me and my cousin, who, you may think has redeemed herself by wearing black shoes – but no – if you look closely, her glasses are MULTI COLOURED.

As for me – christ. I loved those tassles. I even wore a bright turtle neck underneath the jumper for extra brightness.

I await your abuse.
