GOOD BYE

So, that tittle is technically a lie as I’m not actually leaving… I’m just re-locating. Over to blogger, with a new domain and what not. Blogger just seemed to be more practical for what I wanted and I feel a fresh space for my blog is exactly what I needed. I also have a tone of posts already lined up and scheduled so it’s going to have more regular and better content.
Please follow my new blog on bloglovin’

I hope to see you all over there. Adios amigos x

House of Holland AW14 Show | London Fashion Week [Backstage]

Desktop1

Interning at a  British fashion house weeks before London Fashion Week means comfy shoes, three lattes a day and an ‘anything is possible’ attitude.. It unfortunately does not include a series of status’ and tweets with pictures included. I’d love to of shared my experience via social media but its equally as impossible to find the time as it is unprofessional. Now that it’s all over its acceptable to talk about how I spilled red wine and kissed a thousand napkins to make the show invites a little more trashy and how I found myself at Lilly Allen’s house dropping off some insanely fluffy coats. So apologies for the god damn awful photos.

The constant reminders from industry insiders on how anticipated the show was just made me all the more excited that I was working the show for one of my favourite brands. Think 80s society girls gone wild and you’ll sum up the collection perfectly. Filled with colour, embellishments and of course some sassy phrases printed across garments.. an expected element to any House of Holland show. This year it was Rich Bish but I’ll let you see that for yourself whilst I reminisce about the after party at an exclusive swish hotel with an ever-so-generous free bar.

London Fashion Week – Street Style Part 2

P1060383 Pictures2 Pictures3 P1060399 P1060401 Pictures1

Second installment of street style at LFW featuring some explicit knitwear and monochrome at it’s finest. I’m obsessed with men’s fashion recently, I find it so interesting and I love how much mixing textures and layering is involved this season (something I love to do myself, especially during Autumn/Winter). If I was a lad I’d insist my wardrobe was filled with the likes of Comme des Garcons and Komakino as they constantly deliver.

I also bumped into the lovely Jameela Jamil and took some pictures of her outfit which was made up of mostly high street – looked amazing and was affordable, my favourite combo!

London Fashion Week | OOTD

Dress – H&M | Jacket – Urban Outfitters | Bag – H&M | Necklace – eBay

Fashion Week, the only place that feels like home without actually being at home. Admittedly a little small fish, big pond kinda feel whilst walking through the courtyard but everyone has their own style and it works like one big unconventional, well dressed family.

A baroque-animal print hybrid on a bomber style jacket all sounds a bit dreadful (and a lot may say it looks equally as bad) but I needed it in my life and I think it dresses up a simple outfit pretty well.  It was also practical as it was casual enough to run around London but still had a little extra something for Somerset House.

September | Transitional shopping

September shopping list - transitional pieces
It’s FINALLY time to start waving hello to my favourite seasons, Autumn and Winter! Firstly, I have to bare that weird-unpredictable in between weather that September normally holds. Luckily, it’s nothing us Brits can’t handle as seasons here are often blurred and rain is an all year round kinda thing.
I also start uni this month so I’m hoping to pick up plenty of comfy and casual pieces to see me through long days of lectures and whatever else my Fashion Promotion degree has to throw at me. I can’t wait to get started but first I need to get through the stress of planning outfits for Fashion Week. I wish I started planning it sooner but I just don’t have it in my soul to be organised, however hard I try.
Side note: I haven’t done any outfit posts in a while but I get my new camera soon so that should solve my ‘I refuse to upload this picture because the quality is awful and I look like a goose’ problem, or at least half of it… I’ll have to live with looking like a goose unfortunately.

Bristol Fashion Week

Warning – slightly picture heavy post!

Going to keep this short and sweet because the pictures speak for themselves but I headed to Bristol on Friday with a blogger pass for Bristol Fashion Week. The show was a lot of fun and it was nice to meet so many new bloggers and see what the  high street stores have to offer this Spring/Summer.

Gonna have a rummage through my goody bag and get an early night, I’m not built for how busy I’ve been this week – How does Carrie Bradshaw do it, eh?  Anyway, here’s the rest of the pictures – the quality isn’t great but it does show off a few outfits. I loved majority of the monochrome (Obviously! I wear all black 85% of the time so it’s right up my street) but I’ve got my eye on a few neon pieces too.
