MFW SS2015 • The Wearable Edit

Screen Shot 2014-09-22 at 10.39.03Milan Fashion Week has easily produced the most wearable looks so far.

The Italian wonders of the fashion world consistently churn out impeccable looks that match their own enviable sense of dress.

I am deeply in lust with the colour block suits from Iceberg, Lucas Nascimento and Emilio Pucci.

I deeply struggled with the spelling of many of these names to bring you the most fabulous and beautiful looks from Milan Fashion Week.

Enjoy. x

OOTD • Naa Naa Duster Coat

Naa Naa Duster Coat

Sweater Dress – Cheap Monday (similar)  •  Belt – Mink Pink  •  Boots and Bag- Zara (old)  •  Duster Coat* – Naa Naa  

This coat is fantastic because it reminds me of a lab coat that has been put in the wash with something bright red. It’s a fantastic transitional piece because it’s so light and adds a tiny little warmth and a massive lot of style.

This one from Naa Naa is a great alternative to the more expensive ASOS ones that have been really popular recently.

Giamba • The New Miu Miu

Yesterday, a new signature line was born.

A signature line, if you didn’t know, is a secondary brand created by an already-established designer. Miuccia Prada for instance, has Miu Miu. Isabel Marant has Étoile. Marc Jacobs has Marc by Marc Jacobs. 

The signature brand is the little sister of the family trend-setter.

And the little sister of the family trend-setter, is usually edgier/sweeter/wackier – and slightly more affordable – than her grown up sibling.

While Prada for instance, has spawned the 2012 ‘Grease’ revival and underwear over outerwear, Miu Miu is the one that made plaits and swallow-print incredibly covetous.

Giambattista Valli yesterday showed his own new brand collection…and it’s beautiful. The ‘younger’ cliche of signature brands abounded here with leggy designs, ruffles, gentle pastels and cutesy collars. It all felt very Alexa Chung goes to Mallory Towers.

And those tights *dreamy eyes*

OOTD • First Designer Shoes

Fur Zara SnoodHat – H&M  •  Scarf – Zara  (available in store)  •  Tee – Zara  •  Leggings – Zara  •  Bag – River Island (old)  •  Boots – Isabel Marant

You never forget your first time.

And I, sat surrounded by boxes on the plush leather seats, am unlikely to forget the exhilaration of my first ever designer purchase.

Isabel Marant Dicker boots, since you’re asking.

My good old Topshop dub Pistol boots have died a death after several years of service, and so, instead of repurchasing what will undoubtedly cave in again in another three years, I decided to scour Harvey Nichols for something far more lasting and beautiful. I narrowed the best black boots down to Ash Jalouse, Acne Pistol and Isabel Marant Dicker.

Though I’m clearly reckless (a student buying Isabel Marant!?) I’m also a little tiny bit sensible, because these babies come with dust bags and will last me forever and ever and ever (probably.)

Benefit And The Art of the Eyebrow

Benefit Brow Bar

I love my eyebrows. It took me until Sixth Form to realise that one of the most flattering things that you can do to your face is fill them in. However, it took me until yesterday to realise that like everything in life, you can go above and beyond with your brows.

I was invited with I Love Manchester to a brow event at Harvey Nichols with Benefit (incidentally, my favourite beauty brand) and treated to a tint and wax.

Don’t get me wrong, my brows were great beforehand, but after the treatment, they are sharp, glossy and fuller. The brow mapping was particularly interesting: though my arch and end were perfectly placed, the start of my brow was slightly off, making my nose appear wider.

Benefit Brow Bar

There was also a bit of a surprise up the fabulous sleeve of Jared Bailey, Global Brow Expert, as we were introduced to Bling Brow! After a year of brows such as Vanessa Hudgens’ , Benefit have teamed up with Swarovski to give you the bling brow treatment. The service will be available for a limited time from November 1 at Brow Bars and boutiques nationwide. There will also be a DIY kit available from the same date.

Check out my experience with Benefit on Youtube:

LFW SS2015 • The Wearable Edit

 

Screen Shot 2014-09-17 at 11.23.56

This week, aeroplanes were sagging with the jewels and Choos of hundreds of the fashion pack on their way from New York to our beloved Blighty.

London Fashion Week. Widely accepted to be the most eclectic of all four cities.

Admittedly, this proved finding wearable looks even harder. But I found you some. Expect lots of colour blocking, sheer and ruffles. I was particularly enamoured by the Tom Ford show and I really really like the tangerine duster with the pink dress at Emilia Wickstead.

Kisses.

OOTD • I Don’t Trust Me Either

I Don't Trust Me Either OOTD Black Vest – Choies  •  Faux Fur Gilet – Next  •  Faux Leather Leggings – Zara  •  Boots – Zara (old)

I was wearing this vest top in Manchester the other day, and a policeman was looking at me suspiciously. I think that he thinks criminals walk around wearing clothing that express their intentions or disposition.

 If this was the case, Superdry wearers would all have severe eczema.

Just because my tee says that you can’t trust me doesn’t mean you can’t trust me, ok?

Fashion is a complicated thing.

A Wish List #1

Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 17.04.47

‘Innes’ Nude Pencil Dress – Forever Unique  •  Red Blazer – Zara  •  Red Fine Sweater – Zara  •  Pink Fur ‘Popsicle’ Stole – Charlotte Simone  •  Leopard Print Slip-ons - River Island at ASOS  •  Mirrored Leather Monk-Strap Brogues – Sergio Rossi

If I was one of the seven deadly sins I would undoubtedly be covetousness. I can never be sated. Whether that is having an entire block of chocolate when I should really only have a square, or listening to a song (Wraith by Peace, most likely) so many times it gets tiresome really makes no difference. It’s an intrinsic part of me to want more.

This problem is obviously worst when it comes to clothes. And these are my current wants. I’m particularly gluttonous when I look at that nude pencil dress from Forever Unique. It has the Kardashian silhouette down to a T. I’m also desperate for a Charlotte Simone stole. This new candy pink one is so up my street!

What do you covet right now?

NYFW SS2015 • The Wearable Edit

Screen Shot 2014-09-13 at 01.18.32It’s that time of year again, folks. The time of year when Instagram becomes one massive Why The Fuck Am I Not There? and every single thing in your wardrobe suddenly becomes massively disappointing.

But we love it, amirite?

As a ‘Fashion Person’, I certainly do ‘get’ some of the weirder trends because I like to think I’m in touch with the cultural genius of the designers and their exceptionally niche inspirations.

However, I’m also a real human who must wear real clothes without scaring people on the street (much), so here is an edit of the most wearable and inspirational looks from NYFW. More of the same coming for LFW, MFW and PFW.

Peace out.
