Take-out review: delicious Dindin kitchen

We were intrigued (not to mention, instantly peckish!) when a flyer for Dindin Kitchen landed on our desks. This innovative Persian eatery offers healthy dishes flavoured with fresh herbs (especially mint, tarragon and coriander) as well as spices such as cinnamon and saffron, and its take-out offering is so much more appealing than a bland sandwich.
 

Chicken and lemon saffron soufflé

We were especially keen to try the aubergine and herb soufflés (a deliciously healthy way to incorporate sustaining protein in to our lunch.)  But being greedy types, we also ordered in a selection of mezze and a couple of wraps. And who could resist a Rinkoff Crodough (an ingenious croissant-meets-doughnut)?! Admittedly not the healthiest dish on the menu, but we reckon we cancelled out those calories with a cute fruit pot of kiwi and mango…
 

Goats' cheese, caramelised fig and rosemary wrap

Our favourite dishes? The smoked aubergine and tomato salad, the goats cheese wrap with figs and rosemary and the aubergine soufflé. (Oh, and we nearly came to blows over the raspberry Crodough!)

Dindin Kitchen is at Gray’s Inn Road, Holborn. Open from 7.30am-9pm Monday to Friday. For deliveries call 020 7242 2249, or email your order to deliveries@dindinkitchen.com

Jessie Harris x Danielle Foster Collaboration

In this innovative collection, Jessie Harris’ modernistic approach is brilliantly combined with Danielle Foster’s boxy, clean silhouettes. Danielle’s leather bags are customised with a chunky brass buckle hand crafted by Jessie, making for a stylish, unique addition to the range.
The D-shaped  buckles of the clutch bags are echoed in the line of jewellery Jessie had produced to sit alongside the collection; D-shaped earrings, rings and bangles.


The jewellery is available in brass, sterling silver, and gold vermeil.
The collection will be released this autumn.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2014 Watch Collection

This autumn, Marc by Marc Jacobs offers a stunning new range of watches to accessorise any outfit, in a variety of colours and styles. 



Both charming and energetic, this collection features designs for every person or outfit, including the newly updated Henry Dinky, which moves away from a gold-plated watch with a chain bracelet to incorporate leather straps and bold watch faces. 

The Slim watch will  make its debut: sleek and minimalist, but in a range of eye-popping colours ,from crimson red to deep marine blue.



Continuing this nautical theme, the popular Baker watch will be updated with neutral navy straps and rose-gold detail. 
 
The newly-revamped Baker watch

Playful yet sophisticated, with a choice between bright colours and more subdued tones with sleek gold finishes, this range is sure to be popular and ease the transition from the warm summer months into autumn!

The Fall 2014 Marc by Marc Jacobs collection will be available in Marc by Marc Jacobs boutiques, and Watch Station at House of Fraser.

Tabitha Webb's Tips for Summer Occasion Dressing



Miranda Kerr
Pippa Middleton




























Tabitha Webb

1. Think about the occasion.  Whether you’re heading to a wedding, garden party or to meet the in-laws, make sure you know what other people are wearing and if there’s a dress code so you don't feel out of place. And obviously if it is the in-laws keep it below the knee.

2. Know your own body.  If you loathe your arms, don’t go for a strapless or spaghetti strap dress - capped or elbow length sleeves are the way to go, or see through lace sleeves are another, sexier solution. A detailed neckline is always good to draw the eye from a less than flat stomach and if you are bigger on the bottom half, a boat neckline perfectly balances your silhouette.

Hellabore dress in blush tweed, £385



























Adrina dress in green tweed, £370

3. Never shop alone. I always like to take either my mum or one of my sisters (assuming they won't complain - which they normally do!) for a second opinion.

4. If you can, shop online. It gives you the opportunity to try things on in the comfort of your own home, with your own shoes and accessories, and get your friends or partner’s immediate feedback.

5. Bed bold. You’ll never regret a pretty print for the summer and bright colours are always flattering and will immediately bring a smile to your face.

6. Go with your instincts. You will know as soon as you put a dress on whether it works for you or not. If you feel confident and sexy in it, then go for it. You know your own style and your figure better than anyone.

What to wear now: trousers

It may be warm outside, but trousers are most definitely trending. Culottes, distressed denim and wide-leg trousers are the ones we’ve spotted most on SS and AW catwalks and all over the high street, making them the perfect trans-seasonal buy to see you through to Autumn. Pick your favourite style here, then add simple pieces for a classic look.

Styling Tips

Wear your ripped jeans with a plain coloured shirt, Converse or skaters, and a bucket bag. 

Culottes will look great with a cropped shirt, slides and retro sunglasses. 

Wide leg trousers need to be balanced out with a fitted top - wear sandals and delicate jewellery to top off the outfit.
