  • Summer Fashion Footnote

    Walking down the Kings Road this morning, a new shop appeared on my fashion radar (next to one of my other favourite Spanish shops, Bimba y Lola ) called El Ganso. El Ganso is a…

  • Local London Libations Part Two

    Who knew that on a small street in the backwaters of Hammersmith, West London,  one could find an authentic gin distillery? Not just any old distillery… Sipsmith…

  • Local London Libations part one…

    Two consecutive posts (this one and the one that follows) regarding wine & spirits might give you the wrong impression about stylishmews. Let me explain… A few weeks ago…

  • The closest thing to being on an episode of Homeland

    I normally try to visit, taste, or experience the things I write about on stylishmews. This is one occasion when I am going to put that premise aside and write about something I…

  • Over the river and through the woods to Tottenham Court Road we go!

    I am going to let you in on my most recent discovery. If you are a stylishmews follower and consider yourself a bit of a reluctant shopper, get yourself to Tottenham Court Road.…

  • La la la la la la la la la….

  • A Saturday in London

    A friend asked me recently… “what is the point of your blog, exactly”? It is a legitimate question which I addressed in my very first post. I like to explore and…

  • A Spanish Downton?

    What is a woman like you watching a show like this? When it comes to television, you might say my taste borders on stylishly low brow and eclectic. I am a sucker for period dramas…

    The thought of driving to Bermondsey for the exclusive preview brunch of an artist, was not what I felt like doing on a rainy Sunday morning. My friend, the brilliant Latin…

    Meeting Jay Blades, the co-founder of  Out of the Dark leaves quite an impression. I had read about the charity and the support they were receiving from the likes of Heals, John…

    Never drop in on anyone unannounced, unless, of course, you happen to be visiting Houghton Hall in Norfolk on a Monday or Tuesday. Earlier this summer I had to postpone my visit…

    The Battersea Arts Centre is a truly magnificent building in the old Battersea Town Hall at the top of Lavender Hill. Over the past 120 years, this building has been a focal…

  • It’s never too late, but hurry!

    This is a last minute suggestion. Watch the trailer below and go see Mary & Bill this Wednesday June 26 at 7:00pm. If the film is as good as the trailer, we are all in for a…

  • stylishmews in wonderland

    I promised you my posts would never be boring. A few months ago I read about a retail concept, the Late Night Chameleon Cafe, in Dalston. Dalston? Where the heck is Dalston? If…

  • Dasha Zhukova has something to say

    Do you have 9+ minutes you can spare? Good, because the video, which hurrah, I have figured out how to embed (easy for some of you, monumentally difficult pour moi) is a…

  • Look for this label

    My running commentary on London has gotten a little sidetracked… Let’s just say, we are temporarily moving north; Scotland to be precise…to the Isle of Lewis.…

  • What a Judas Kiss

    I have described my blog as a running commentary on stylish London. For the purposes of this post I am going to throw that concept (stylish) out the window and share with you what…
