What I Wore: Feathers & Balloons

What I Wore: Feathers & Balloons

My love for all-black outfits is no secret: it makes me feel happy and comfy and it always works for any occasion. I love it so much, I’d say about three quarters of my wardrobe is black, so in order to keep it interesting I like to play around with details. Different textures and accessories can make all the difference, which is why I like this outfit so much. My simple black Sandro sweater is definitely a whole lot more […]

Alex Loves… Slip On Trainers

Alex Loves… Slip On Trainers

When I was 18, I went through a bit of a skater girl phase. Trucker caps and my checked Vans slip-ons were standard attire (thank god Twitter wasn’t around back then, heh?). I loved those Vans, I wore them so often they had that faded, vintage feel to them, the kind of look you simply can’t buy. My mom, however, didn’t agree. She continues to deny it to this day, but one day they disappeared, and I’m convinced she threw […]

ASOS Hero Rings

ASOS Hero Rings

If you’ve seen me in the past couple of weeks, you’ve probably seen my new bling. I ordered these ASOS Revive Mismatched Hero Rings on a bit of a whim, maybe as a joke even, despite not being much of a ring-wearer at all. These are the opposite of what I’ll usually wear, anything but subtle – they are totally in your face, and weirdly, I love it. Not only do I feel a little badass wearing them, they’ve become […]

A night at the BAFTA’s with Evian!

A night at the BAFTA’s with Evian!

After years of watching awards ceremonies on tv, I finally got to experience what it was really like when Evian invited me and a couple of other bloggers to attend the 2013 BAFTA’s with them a couple of weeks ago. In my years in the fashion industry, I’ve seen my fair share of celebrities, have gone to numerous glamorous events, so I didn’t think I could get starstruck anymore. WRONG! The BAFTA’s bring glamorous on a whole new level. Never […]

What I Wore to London Fashion Week: Day 4

What I Wore to London Fashion Week: Day 4

Day 4 of Fashion Week and we could’ve been mistaken that spring had arrived – it was a lovely, lovely day (shame to spend it inside the tents!). I took the lovely weather as an opportunity to whip out my Kenzo dress I’ve been saving to wear since getting it over Christmas. I teamed it with Ash wedge trainers (which are a recent revelation – I was never really a big fan until I put them on and found out […]

What I Wore To London Fashion Week: Day 3

What I Wore To London Fashion Week: Day 3

Sunday and no rest for the fashionable. Day 3 at London Fashion Week and it was a painfully early start at Margaret Howell. Me and Naomi (The Fashpack) decided to walk back to Covent Garden together when we noticed the incredible light starting to get through the thick fog which clouded London earlier in the morning. Of course we had to have an impromptu photoshoot and I’m pretty damn pleased with the result. I went for a Black & White […]

What I Wore At London Fashion Week: Day 2

What I Wore At London Fashion Week: Day 2

For Day 2 of London Fashion Week I stuck to my beloved black, but brightening it up with pops of neon yellow from the Proenza Schouler PS1 bag and white studded Russell and Bromley brogues, which I borrowed from The Apartment. I had so many shows that day, heels were simply not an option… it was all about comfort! I’m still not very comfortable posing for outfit pictures, but shooting with Toni made it *almost* fun and painless. I’m wearing: ASOS Swing […]

What I Wore at London Fashion Week Day 1

London Fashion Week is still in full swing, so apologies for the lack of updates as I’ve been busy attending the shows, the parties and generally enjoying the amazing vibe around London right now.  For the first time, I’ve decided to share my outfits with you – as per usual I’ve been sticking to my beloved black, so perhaps they’re not the most groundbreaking, but it’s what makes me feel comfortable. I’ve also been getting my hair and make up done […]

London Fashion Week Blogger Essentials

London Fashion Week Blogger Essentials

Yep. In a mere couple of hours, London Fashion Week is back. This will be my 11th season, so I think that makes me a veteran now. Still, every season brings its own challenges and changes. Over the past seasons I’ve experienced everything from snow to sweltering temperatures, the pre and post twitter era and evolving from covering it as a journalist to blogger. The lesson here: be prepared for everything. Except, I’m not usually very organised. I’m more of […]

Snow Day

Snow Day

I have been LOVING the snow. It brings out the child in me and I tend to go a little crazy… Over the weekend, I went for a long snowy walk with my friend Kate (Fabric of my Life), and I finally got to take out my new Topshop fedoras for a spin. The beautiful scenery was also the perfect excuse to play around with my RadLab vintage filters, which made the harsh white of the snow a lot ofter. […]

Celebrate Christmas with Levi’s

Celebrate Christmas with Levi’s

If you’re still stuck for Christmas shopping ideas, the lovely folks over at Levi’s have compiled a great little gift guide for both men and women, in stores and online now. I was asked by Levi’s to pick a couple of pieces from the Christmas collection and style them my own way. I chose a cosy, thick-knitted cardigan (perfect for cold winter nights!) and a pair of Curve ID jeans. Considering I’ve not actually worn jeans in a couple of […]

My Top 5 Leopard Print High Top Trainers

My Top 5 Leopard Print High Top Trainers

Impulse buys usually go one of two ways: either they become your favourite thing EVER (for a little while) or they turn out to be huge mistakes, ending up on a pile at the back of your wardrobe. Well, last week I impulsively picked up a pair of leopard print high top trainers at New Look, as they were cute and comfy, and well, I haven’t taken them off since getting them. Paired with simple skinny jeans and a warm […]
