Carven SS12 has just hit down at Selfridges and looks so cute!! I love the styling with the bow back court shoe, appeals to my girlier side which doesn't come out very often. Love the yellow on yellow.

Just seen these awesome images of the Prada show on the Self Service blog (haven't seen the full show yet) and had to post. Love the prints and the HAIR.

It's also a good time for me to rave about the cover of the SS12 issue. Daphne Groenveld photographed by Alasdair McLellan. I love the one in colour the best.

Just on the train back from Shrewsbury after a wonderful hen weekend at Condover Hall. It was the type of weekend you never want to end, highlights include singing and dancing along to Whitney on the big screen in a matching costume and climbing a 30ft pole, standing on a 2ft platform at the top, jumping off it and catching a trapeze in mid air. A bigger post will follow, but for now a couple of quick snaps...

Dying at this Mary Katrantzou dress. Watched the show live on and was totally mesmerised, especially by the more fluid pieces like this in contrast to the structured shapes she is already known for.

Love this look, the jumper reminds me of strawberry laces!

I found it hard to narrow down my favourite looks from the Topshop Unique show, there were so many! This has to be their most wearable collection yet, commercial but edgy, Kate Phelan's influence was obvious. Especially loved the harnessed printed midi dress, the oversized knits with cross print and the velvet dungarees. Savings started.


Most of the shows I get excited about take place in London, because Londoners never hold back! Here are some of my fave looks so far, from my favourite London designers..

Simone Rocha

J.W Anderson

House of Holland

Louise Gray

This post is already very image heavy, so a part 2 is to follow..!


So I didn't think I was attending any shows this season, but I was kindly sent a couple of tickets by some very generous PRs. I'm not gonna lie, when I saw the rain on Saturday afternoon and found out my tube line wasn't running I considering bailing, but instead I braved the 19 bus in the downpour and made it to Vauxhall Fashion Scout for Spijkers en Spijkers relatively dry.

I was intrigued by the title of the show "The Birds of Paradise" and the reference seemed evident in the collection which included ostrich feather coats, bird feather collars and trims on shoes and embroidered birds on silk shirts. However I was interested to learn that the term is also a Dutch expression which refers to eccentric and colourful people. In particular twin sisters Truus and Riet Spijkers, were inspired by Edith Bouvier Beale, a New York socialite and first cousin of Jackie O well known for her eclectic style.

Kate Nash was sitting across the way from me for the whole show and it took me most of the show to realise who she was with her new black and blonde hair. She looked amazing!

Afterwards I tried my luck at Antipodium, knowing it would be hugely popular and my standing ticket probably wouldn't be worth the paper it was printed on. Sadly they were full to capacity before even all the seated tickets got in from what I could see, but I died and went to fashion heaven anyway as I got to see Kate Lanphear in the flesh!

Today I ran errands which including popping into Topshop which is a post in itself because it took a lot of restraint not to spend any money. In a rare moment I decided to take a photo of my outfit with an actual camera, mostly so I could post my gold high tops which I love more than life and definitely should wear more.
