That’s a wrap

A statement blanket wrap is this season’s key piece that will lift any look in an instant. Sumptuous wraps and ponchos ‘blanketed’ the AW14 runways. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Olivia Palermo and Cara Delevingne were the ones who set alarm bells ringing. These lithe-limbed models, best known for wearing very little, were photographed swathed in blankets, with barely an inch of flesh on display. These were no ordinary blankets, mind; they were  Burberry Prorsum wool-and-cashmere blanket coats with a starting price of €1,123. Don’t worry if you haven’t got one – this season’s collections incorporate a range of chunky knits, traditional prints and rich textures which nod to Celtic Heritage. Gone are dusty Wild West capes, instead...

The 200 thread count cotton adds a touch of luxury and glamour. The statement floral design prevails on...

Autumn Beckons

There’s a crisp, wake-me-up chill in the air, it’s the ideal time to nail the way you want to look this fall. We can’t wait to get our hands on some cosy knits, ankle boots, and everything else that makes fall fashion so fun. Take a glimpse of what we’ve been lusting after this fall and check us out on pinterest for some more autumn living, style and entertaining inspiration (http://www.pinterest.com/meadowsandbyrne/autumn-beckons/). There is nothing quite like the feeling of crushed leaves beneath your feet, and this uniquely fall activity should most definitely not be carried out in summery sandals. Ankle boots create a relaxed, comfortable look when paired with skinny...
