Try this Tuesday

Lacking inspiration this Tuesday? I most certainly am, that and the motivation to change out of my pajamas which are ├╝ber ugly ones, to make matters worse. Nevertheless how chic is this look? I am a little in love with the simple hair and cool earring thing the Clarins heiresses have got going on, we shall all try.


Tres White and tres tres Black

How truly fabulous has the Spring Summer 2013 RTW collections been! If you haven’t seen any of the collections and want to quickly catch up I highly recommend watching the ‘genius journalist’ Tim Blank’s videos. Start with the obvious ones Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Valentino etc and then make sure you watch what I think are the most amazing Alexander McQueen, Haider Ackermann, Balenciaga, Gareth Pugh, Dries Van Noten and Altuzarra…

If you have eyes you will notice that all the collections strongly feature black and white structured pieces. In the past few Summer Seasons the colour trends have moved from bright block colours, to more subtle block colours paired with patterns, and then to the pastels of Spring Summer 2012. So it is no surprise that it is now back to black and white with a focus on modern shapes like ruffles and prints like stripes, spots and squares.

Fashion Royalty Tips and Tricks…

Having been surrounded by some very chic gals during fashion week I have seen a few trends and tricks that we all should try. I am going to skip over all the massive usual trends you see written in every single magazine these days (you know the ones opulent, purple, optical illusions, tops over trousers, etc …) and well base it more on what the fashion forward glamazons are actually wearing.

1. Boyfriend jeans + pointy shoes

The fash crowd are loving this clash of masculine and feminine as I think it creates a perfect balance. Pair it with a kitsch tee and a glam necklace and you will be the coolest in the crowd, for sure!



2. Beanies are best

I blame beanie obsessed Cara Delevigne for this as whilst Anna Dello Russo also is guilty of loving a beanie way back when, I think Cara is quite influential with the youngsters (especially since she was rumooured to be dating Harry Styles) and all of the the cool kids are now wearing them. And not even just for winter, basically just with anything but make the outfit quite glam to try and avoid looking to hobo as hobo chic doesn’t technically exist!




3. A formal skirt with a slouchy jumper

If we are to really think about this, this micro trend has transcended from Haider Ackerman Spring Summer 2012 collection and now that Poppy Delevigne and Alexa Chung have done it if is officially a trend to Try. Try it yourself by pairing your tweed, sparkly or sheer skirt with a grandpa jumper. Trust me you will look grand!


4. Western is back from the west

I don’t think Isabel Marant is given the credit she deserves for how truly influential she is with youngsters. You know the shoes you most liked just brought the sneakers with the hidden wedge, well she did them first and now they are a cult classic in Europe. Her Fall 2012 collection featured a subtle and sexy western theme, well it wasn’t that subtle but it was like ‘let’s put the model in a cowboy hat and riding on a horse’ (thank god!) It was more like ‘let’s pair these awesome red leather jeans with perfect cowboy boots and pretty silk pieces.’ It is so easy to work into your wardrobe and it looks fabulous. Just remember be subtle you don’t want to look like you are a sole cowgirl at an invisible cowboys and Indians party.


5. Emerald green is boss

I am assuming that with the new Anna Karenina movie out people are expecting there to be another killer emerald green dress like ‘that’ dress Kiera wore in Atonement and are trying to get ahead of the trend. Or perhaps a more likely explanation is that Gucci used emerald in their Fall collection and seeing as mint was the colour of summer it is a natural progression to wear emerald. Well whatever it is it looks boss on everyone I would safely say it is the sexiest out. Stay away from straight colour blocking as that was a few too many seasons ago and is a little tired but try it with a bright pattern or crisp white.




My Week with sass & bide

These past couple of weeks I was lucky enough to work at Sass & Bide getting ready for their show at London Fashion Week. It was honestly one of the most surreal, and incredible experiences I have had.

Being the massive loser that I am I usually sit on when London fashion week is on continually hitting the refresh button until I see the Sass & Bide show, so touching it and seeing it before basically anyone else in the world was insane! Then meeting and working alongside the uber creative Sarah Jane and Heidi (who are more cool and stylish in real life of that is possible) and the rest of the lovely and incredibly talented Sass & Bide team was literally amazing.

Here are a few snaps I snapped along the way, they however do not do the general coolness Sass & Bide oozes justice..









Bulk Blinging…

Hope everyone had a splendid Fashion Night Out. We crashed the All Saints party in London Town which was very nice, we bulk blinged for the occasion…


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.






Is it weird that my fav pic was the test shot though…


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…















1. Acne
2. Emilio Pucci
3. Jean Paul Gaultier
4. Fendi
5. Valentino
6. Rag and Bone
5. Salvatore Ferragamo

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!


Happy Weekend.

Some inspiration for your weekend… The simplest yet chicest yet coolest outfit ever!

Lily Donaldson what a superstar.


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!
