The Sales Edit: Selfridges

The Sales Edit: Selfridges

Christmas has come and gone, which means only one thing: SALES! I’ve been browsing the online sales all day (for research purposes, obviously), and there’s just too many great bargains out there, so thought I’d share an edit of my favourite ones with you on here. First stop: the Selfridges sale! CLOTHES:   SHOES:   BAGS & ACCESSORIES:

Westfield London celebrates 5th birthday with designer sweater collection.

Westfield London celebrates 5th birthday with designer sweater collection.

Westfield London is turning 5 (can you believe it?) and to celebrate they are having a series of events going on in the shopping centre, including a sweatshirt pop up featuring designs of some of the coolest London designers around. Peter Pilotto, Louise Gray, Thomas Tait, Sophia Webster (who I love, see here) and Richard Nicoll have all put their very distinctive mark on a simple sweatshirt, turning them into covetable pieces. For just £65 a pop, these bad boys […]

A sneak peek at ASOS AW13!

A sneak peek at ASOS AW13!

My name is Alex and I’m an ASOS addict.  It’s fair to say that a big chunk of my wardrobe comes from ASOS. I do most of my clothes shopping online, and when it comes to style, price and quality, ASOS is by far my favourite website. So as you can imagine, I was rather chuffed to be getting a little up close look at the new AW13 collection in the ASOS showroom last week. Obviously it was only a […]

Wednesday Wishlist: The Stackable Ring Edition

Wednesday Wishlist: The Stackable Ring Edition

Stackable jewellery is a great way to give a bit of oooomph to your bling, with the possibility to change them around whenever you want. I’ve been sporting the Folli Follie rose gold ring (2) for the past year and love playing around with it – creating different shapes, wearing them on their own on multiple fingers or as a stack on one finger. Lots of jewellery brands offer great single items (whether that’s bangles or rings) for you to assemble into […]

Charlotte Olympia At The Outnet

Charlotte Olympia At The Outnet

  I’ve been a long-time admirer of Charlotte Olympia shoes, although admiring from afar is as good as it gets for now as I simply can’t afford them. So whenever there’s a drop on The Outnet, I get massively excited, because at up to 60% off, I’m a big step closer to finally owning a pair of my own. Although if I did ever get a pair, I’d probably frame them and hang them on my wall to admire – […]

Print your Instagram snaps with Printed.com

 I love Instagram. It’s become such a central part of my blog (and my life), allowing you to communicate a thousand words with the power of a simple picture. I love how it has made me look at things differently, notice the beauty in the detail and create a lasting memory of a snapshot moment. I did always think it’s a shame that these memories were strictly confined to my phone. So you can imagine my joy at receiving a […]

Wednesday Wishlist: The Aztec Edition

Wednesday Wishlist: The Aztec Edition

  Aztec influences are everywhere this summer. From the bold statement pieces to more subtle details, it’s a great way to inject a bit of colour and print into your wardrobe. On the high street, Topshop, ASOS and Boohoo have got a great selection of Aztec pieces, whilst in the luxury brands, MSGM and Isabel Marant fly the flag for this season’s big trend. Personally, I’ve gone for bold and bought the crazy MSGM printed dress (1.), definitely a statement… […]

Peter Som for Anthropologie

Peter Som for Anthropologie

I’m always partial to a good, unexpected collaboration, and Peter Som‘s small but perfect collection for Anthropologie is just that. Anthroplogie isn’t known for its huge, commercial collaborations, but often does these wonderful little collections with a wonderful designers. US designer Peter Som may be a well-established name within the fashion industry, but perhaps not widely known outside of it, so this collection is a great opportunity to introduce him to a new public. The collection consists of pretty (wedding […]
