From dinosaur lace to 70s prints; here’s StyleNest’s eclectic roundup of the best pieces new in this week.
We’ve gone new season crazy here at StyleNest, as the Autumn/Winter 12 collections keep hitting stores. There are stunning prints from two of StyleNest’s favourite brands, Tucker and J.Crew, as well as some must-have new season boots from shoe showman Rupert Sanderson.
