Puppy, Potion and the Pony

Rebecca of The Clothes Horse showed us the perfect way to layer up the Potion Skirt with the Pony Up Shirt with some navy tights. Rebecca acknowledged the very patriotic feel of this skirt. So you could be really ahead of the game, and prepare your outfit for 4th of July and hopping for better weather while the skirt is still available. The Potion Skirt is currently reduced from $195 to $95 and the Pony-Up Shirt is reduced from $110 to $50! Thanks for the great combo Rebecca. We also love the Jack Russel Terrer, sooo cute!

Sweet pastels

Rebecca of The Clothes Horse recently wore a beautiful outfit decked out in shades of sweet pastel pink and blue. She wore the Legends Dress in Chambray and really shows off the Legend Dress in all it's glory, and how to adorn this piece in the winter by wearing colours that remind us of delightful sweet treats.

The Road to Valentines: There Will Never Be Another You

It can't be Valentines without a post of all the jewelry you should be buying. Although really this is just an excuse to replace the jewelry you've lost, or add to the very necessary collection of adornments. Here's a selection of a few true gems that are available and are definitely pieces you will never want to part ways with:

The Santa Fe Ring (which suits very well with the Rue St Vincent Coat)

Leopard and Suede

Rebecca from The Clothes Horse is always a great person to take inspiration from when it comes to styling Family Affairs pieces. She styled the Mambo Shirt so well with a seventies style brown suede skirt. The colours and fabrics compliment each other so well.

Ain't No Mountain High Enough

The Mountain High Necklace shot by Amber Mahoney. This is made of hand woven glass beads. If 2015 hasn't been shaping up to how it was supposed to be so far, get February going with this optimistically named necklace, a great good luck charm.

Stardust

Rebecca from The Clothes Horse always looks truly beautiful and wears Family Affairs in the best way. Here she's shot some lovely photos of the Life On Mars Dress close up. A good thick winter dress so that you can wear something other than tights or thermals under jeans if we may say so.

The Road to Valentines: I Only Have Eyes For You

For Valentines Day, it's fair to say that jewelry is what really matters on the shopping front, and we have a great selection of jewelry for this time of year (and any other time of year). If you love to adorn yourself in hearts, we have a lot of that, or something more subtle and not so valentine-sy but still beautiful and delicate, we have a lot of that as well.

Here's one of our favourite necklaces: Bambi Strikes Back You really can't go wrong with this as a gift (is there anyone who doesn't love Bambi?) This is a great gift whether you want to treat yourself, or give something sweet to someone else. Especially if you're still recovering from the January sales, then this budget friendly option has Valentines Day covered.

With the Band

Alix Brown recently posted this photo of her in Paris from a while ago in the Love Train Jacket and Night Swim skirt. These pieces look great against the green tiled backdrop. This is the perfect get up and go outfit that will last you through the night, and solves the looking effortless while dressed up problem that we're all always trying to solve.

The Road To Valentines: There's A Moon Out Tonight

The hunt for the classic Valentines Day Dress, the showstopper, could be a long hunt, but we've saved you a lot of time, with the Elton. Has there ever been a dress more perfect than the Elton dress? The beautiful bright red chiffon is so stunning. It's incredibly comfortable, with a love v neck to show of your jewels and the drape of the dress will flatter your dance moves whether your the shimmy or gliding type.

Tennessee Thomas snapped a wonderful picture of Alix Brown in the Elton Dress at The Deepend Club (which stocks Family Affairs and is a very fun store if you have yet to check it out.)

Not only will this dress take you from day to night, but more importantly from night to day, if it's the kind of night that never ends.

Today's Road to Valentines song is The Capris There's A Moon Out Tonight. This song is a dream, listen to it with your eyes shut and long for endless night walks by the water.

The Road to Valentines: Baby

It's that time of year again that some people dread, some people don't mind, and others love to indulge in: Valentines Day is approaching.

We've decided to really get in the Valentines spirit, whether you're spending the day with the one you love, going on a date, spending the day with friends, or um...watching Fifty Shades of Grey at the cinema? We have you covered.

To start off the Road to Valentines we're taking a cue from Natalie Off Duty in the Elba Lip Kimono and Coconut Bikini Set, a great way to spruce up lounging around, and start the day off right.

Also what would the Road to Valentines be without some music to accompany it? We'll be posting a songs from the Family Affairs Valentine Playlist, starting off with Donnie and Joe Emerson's Baby.

Feeling Royal

Shop Helpsy's home page currently features one of our favourite photographers Hannah Kristina modelling our New Surrender Blouse and Barbara Skirt showing us how to rule the winter. We love the combination of these pieces with a winter crown hat, the ultimate way to brighten up survival-in-the-snow wear.

Kristin Gallegos in Family Affairs

Back at the end of December one of our stockists Shop Helpsy who we love interviewed make up artist Kristin Gallegos (who also shot one of our Holiday Treats.) Read Helpsy's interview with Kristin where she discusses her upbringing, how she came to be a make up artist and her style. She wore head to toe Family Affairs for the shoot and she wore it well! Check out the interview here.

She looks particularly stunning in the Elton dress:

Indoors and Layered Up for Juno

With the peak of the Juno Winter Storm approaching, we think it's best to stay indoors wrapped up in our No. 9 Dream Quilt and adorable pillows with a cup of tea to hand. So we've decided to do just that and create a pillow fort.

As a treat we are offering Free Shipping today and tomorrow with the code "junopillowfort" There's never been a more opportune time to do online shopping in bed.

Yoko Always

My Yoko shirt puts me in a good mood, it's so soft and upbeat. In the winter I wear it underneath a cashmere sweater.
