This editorial is so beautiful I had to share. I love the eerie intensity of the light flares and blurs, and the ethereal, almost ghostly quality of the photographs. And even though you can’t see it in detail, I want the dress in the first picture from the dark sexiness of the picture and the gorgeous curve of her hip against the silhouette of the hand. Stunning.

I Want it Wednesday – LOVE Dresses

I must be the last blogger to jump on the LOVE bandwagon, but somehow I’ve managed to bypass this brand until now. Well I’m making up for lost time and stocking up on their dresses in particular, with their gorgeous prints and floaty fabrics. They look very feminine and girly, but I love how they can be toughened up for a more rocky, boho look a la Native Fox and  Pure Lovers.

The clothes are pretty simple but sometimes that’s exactly what you want, and there’s enough interesting prints and fabrics to stop the clothes from becoming too simple. I also love the mix of evening and day-wear aesthetics – dresses like this tutu-skirted red number work just as well for a relaxed day look with a parka and wellies as they would for upcoming Christmas and New Year parties.

What do you think? 🙂

Hottest Hot Pants Ever

Leather hot pants high waisted shorts

Jesus Christ, how hot is she. This is the coolest outfit – totally over-sexy studded high-waisted leather shorts but with a masculine, rolled up tee and scraped back hair to tone the look down. I couldn’t pull this off but I’ll keep staring at this photo, pretending I can.

Outfit – Triple Denim

Double denim is so passe, peeps! Triple denim’s the way forward now. Well, maybe. I just wanted to try it out and see how it looked, since I’m a huge fan of double denim. I’m actually pretty pleased with the result. It’s so soft and casual looking, but with a cool, easygoing style. I’ve been experimenting with new ways to wear scarves as winter is well and truly here, and I like the cowboy feel this draped style adds. Also, how awesome are these Topshop gold heel Adorn boots? Haven’t found an outfit they haven’t gone with yet …

So you all know my obsession with Rumi Neely from Fashiontoast. Well Jenny looks similar to her, has similar photos, and has a similar style … so I was bound to love her! But she’s very much her own girl too and I think she’s got such an awesome style, I had to share her with you all.

Topshop Party Collection AW11

*Schwwwwooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff …* (fades into nothing) – that’s the sound of my poor bank balance now Topshop have brought out this completely awesome Party collection.

The juxtaposition of dark and light outfits, and the gorgeous textures of fur and leather have really created an instantly recognisable and gorgeous collection. I also love the blue accents – it’s like the candy-coloured hair of models and brings a quirky flavour to otherwise quite simple looks. Not sure where I stand on the sequins though – I like how they look but they’re usually so awkward and difficult to wear. That’s small beans though. The collection as a whole is pure party goodness – and a lot of these pieces would translate well into everyday wear too.

Sorry bank balance. But I just can’t say no!

Stylist Beauty Shoot

It was so difficult waiting to share these photos with you! A few weeks ago me and Callum headed down to Hoxton to the lovely Jonny Storey’s studio for a beauty shoot with Stylist magazine. If you live in London you’ll no doubt have seen issues being handed out at tube station entrances/exits, though often by the time I’ve got there they’ve run out of copies. No wonder as the magazine is completely awesome, and amazingly – completely free!

Anyway, for their 100th issue, they had readers create the entire magazine, and I got chosen as one of four girls to test out some smart new beauty products and have a photoshoot to show the results. I had an amazing day – all the stylists and Stylist staff were great, and it was lovely to spend time with the other  girls. There was also A LOT of food, so that kept me and Callum happy!

I’m so glad I can share the pictures from the day now because not only was it an incredible experience, but also I really think some of these pictures are Callum’s best ones yet. In fact, I’m thinking of changing WordPress theme to have bigger pictures, as this small size at the moment doesn’t do his photographs justice … what do you think?

To read the feature either pick up a copy of the magazine if you’re in London or have a look at the online version here. I think the reader issue was a really cool initiative. After all, readers know what they want to see in a magazine, and it also gave many of us a chance to experience the workings of Stylist. Although there was a bit of an awkward moment today on the tube where someone sitting opposite with a Stylist open in their hands was staring suspiciously at me …

Outfit: When the Leaves Turn Brown

This is the farmland behind my house. It’s beautiful in autumn when the leaves turn brown and the grass grows long and thick. I had a morning walk with Callum and my family, so put together a simple little outfit with sturdy boots and quickly braided my hair into a plait – though the wind messed that up!

Andrea Fulerton Nails Goody Bag

Andrea Fulerton Nails

A few weekends ago I was lucky enough to do a beauty shoot with Stylist for their 100th edition, made entirely by readers. And as if getting your hair, nails and make up done, spending a day in a cool Hoxton apartment, hanging out chatting about beauty, meeting the Stylist beauty team AND having an amazing home cooked meal by photographer Jonny’s PA was not enough, we got these amazing goody bags from our nail artist, Andrea Fulerton.

Now this is just ridiculous. There’s definitely in excess of £70 worth of stuff in here. This treat could not have come at a better time as I’ve been so impressed by nail geniuses such as Lilly Pebbles and Emily’s Nail Files that I’ve decided to try out some nail art of my own, and this bag of Andrea Fulerton goodies is definitely going to get me off to a good start. How awesome are those skull and cross-bones nail tattoos!

So check back soon as I should have some cool new nails to show off … Also, I’ll be posting about the actual shoot once the magazine’s out next week. Can’t wait to share it with you all – and be sure to look out for a copy of Stylist next week too!
