The Fashion Audit: Liberty x Dr Martens, leg chains and how to weatherproof your hair

What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...

We Love: Taking liberties

These pretty printed classic eighteyelet rubber soled boots call for a floaty dress, a rich wine lip and plenty of angst. Angela Chase et al would die to be missing these.

Liberty x Dr Martens, £170, liberty.co.uk

We're not sure about: Chain reaction

When it comes to fashion misses The Audit prides itself on being an equal-opportunity source of judgement. After bringing you leg chains for men, how could these be ignored? Look out for couples in his'n'hers coming soon to a circle of hell near you.

We're buying: Drip, drip, drip

You may not have noticed the recent scattered light showers – trifling things, really – but your barnet will most certainly have done. This weatherproof spray is for those whose hair has got the frizz factor but aren't ready to rock the older-lady clear-plastic rain bonnet.

£9.20, philipkingsley.co.uk

We can't wait for: Keeping it in the family

Siblings Zoe & Morgan create quirky fine and fashion jewellery ranging from the dainty to the statement from ethically mined materials. This one-off flash sale of their wares will definitely be worth bunking off work early for (we won't tell if you don't).

11 May, 12-8.30pm, 51 Beak Street, London W1

We're saving up for: La Dolce Vita

Boris, schmoris, this is the only bike to be seen on this year. Courtesy of Messrs Dolce and Gabbana, the Animalier comes quipped with 24-karat gold gilding, a bell and, of course, the duo's signature big cat print.

€1,600 (£1,300), 75 Sloane Street, London SW1, 020 7201 0980
