The Wedding of the Year 2017: Preview

Pippe Middleton Engaged

The internet broke a little when news surfaced of Pippa Middleton’s engagement to banker James Matthews earlier this summer.

80’s Throwback: Styling the Alice Band

The Alice Band

The Alice band is back. We repeat: the Alice band is BACK. Headwear staple of the original 1980’s Sloane Ranger, this cute accessory has been spotted on the well-groomed heads of both Hollywood A-listers and British It-girls this summer.

Oh Hello, Princess!

Princess Charlotte

Hearts were all aflutter at Sloanie HQ earlier this week when we caught sight of the first pictures of Princess Charlotte since those from her Christening back in July.
