The Fashion Audit: Pugs, KONY, Susustudio and bikini weather
What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...
We Love: Huggable pugs
Can't commit to a living, breathing, four-legged friend? Florentine boutique Luisa Via Roma's designer pug project may be the answer. Dolled-up Steiff critters, like this Versace pup, are being auctioned off in aid of UNICEF.
We're not sure about: KONY clobber
When a viral campaign gets tons of hits within days you may think the associated charidee merch will hitch your star to a robust bandwagon. Shame then that the backlash against Invisible Children has been vicious. But you know what they say about bad publicity...
We're buying: Susustudio
This stage of in-between weather leaves The Audit all a-fluster, so Studio Nicholson's newly launched e-commerce site is perfectly timed. The menswear-inspired women's workwear is ideal when Marjorie from accounts insists on switching the air-con on every time the sun appears.
We can't wait for: Bikini weather
Anyone who's tried to find a bikini for a last-minute summer holiday will know the early bird catches the swimwear worm. So make the most of Pistol Panties pop-up shop featuring "psychedelic rodeo" bikinis, one-pieces and kaftans which can't be found on the high street.
From Thursday, Selfridges, 400 Oxford Street, 0800 123 400
We're going: Back to our roots
A new exhibition explores how we dress and why. Focusing on how modern Londoners dress is sure to provoke some interesting questions, such as where exactly did the inspiration for all those red trousers come from?
Until January 6, Horniman Museum, 100 London Road, SE23, horniman.ac.uk
