Stylinn & Shootinn

Today was my final day at London College of Fashion. It was beyond fabulous and I learnt an awful lot of fashiony things! These are the pictures from the shoot I styled yesterday, the models were lovely gals.

Yummy and Pretty Things

I was just thinking that I actually haven’t posted my favorite looks from the latest Resort Collections and so I thought why not post my fav looks with my fav foods, as pretty clothes need equally pretty things to accompany them…

Vintage Heaven

Last night I watched Notting Hill for the the first time, what a goodie! So being inspired I went to Portobello Road Market’s this morning. Whilst strolling I found the most amazing vintage jewelry store, think bulk shelves filled with shiny Chanel, YSL, Nina Ricci, Fendi, Christian Dior and every other perfect piece possible. It was truly paradise. I wanted to buy it all and adorn myself Anna Dello Russo style. She is too fabulous!

I may have to wait a few more years before looking this grand as currently I only have earrings and a brooch from the Chanel archives. If I didn’t have to buy food I would have brought an amazing Chanel necklace today it was perfection on steroids. But we all have to aspire to something!

Italian Riviera Glamour

I have just returned for spending a week wearing bright hats, eating gelato, swimming, hiking and admiring the insanely glamorous Italian ladies! Which was seriously beyond fabulous.

I now know I want to be Italian which is hard when you have fair skin, dark blonde hair and blue eyes, but honestly they are the coolest bunch of people ever! Whilst lying on the beach I mentally compiled a few tips on how to look as glam as the Italian beach goers.

1. To go from beach to bar add a bright coral or pink lip.

2. Have a bright and fabulous towel, it was an unwritten beach goer rule I swear! (see proof in pics below).

3. Carry a cotton bandana and when you ruin your ‘do’ wet the bandana and wrap it around your head. To look like a natural do it swiftly, I saw so many gals doing this and it looks beyond chic.

4. Many wear Converse’s as they are practical for day trips and to make them look more stylish rock it with little lace shorts and an oversized top or button up. Worn over bikinis it is perfect for the beach but is also glam enough for the bar or dinner.

5. Make sure your arms are adorned with a few friendship bracelets (bright colours preferable) but you obviously have to be able to swim in them.

Anyways here are a few happy snaps from the trip!

Style Files: Travel Pants

Whilst it is summer in London, it really isn’t! Jeans are still the main thing I wear and I am slowly but surely getting very over them, especially when you are at Central Saint Martins and everyone looks quite glamorous. Fortunately I have hunted down a few bright and happy pairs, as whilst London doesn’t have great weather it has great shopping. Actually though these three pairs are gifts from stylish Australia family members, but nevertheless they still lighten up any gloomy day in London summer…
