A Dandies Approach to Festival Fashion!

A Dandies Approach to Festival Fashion!

Getting festival ready... We are now officially in the thick of the Festival Season! Oh the festival, the emblem of summer, synonymous with denim shorts, spent in vain without Hunter wellies and not a summer at all if you're not attending at least one! Well, truth be told in my twenty nine years of living I must have lived only a handful of summers, because I am far from what the likes of Glastonbury and V-Fest goers would call a 'Festival Goer'. In fact, I'm not. I just happen to wander along to the odd festival the occasional summer, and I am delighted to say that this is one of those summers. Indeed, on Friday I will be attending Wireless Festival at the Olympic Village park and as you would imagine, the ensemble preparation has begun. My stylish thoughts have led me to the conclusion that festival fashion can be easily imitated; firstly it's functional, so common sense and practicality, before aesthetic,...

Alexa Chung – Stylish Reads

Alexa Chung – Stylish Reads

Indeed Alexa Chung, the girl that has been championing flat shoes way before Charlotte Olympia made the smoking slipper a statement shoe, has penned her own book, titled simply 'IT' and released on the 5th September 2013. The book will contain writing, no doubt of the stylish nature, accompanied by photos that Alexa has been taking since October 2012, when she first announced that she would be writing a book, and her very own illustrations - yes she draws too. Alexa has said that the book is by no means autobiographical, but, as the description reads on Amazon... 'A truly one-off collection of Alexa's personal writings, drawings and photographs, It covers everything from her thoughts on life, love and music to her favourite looks and how to decide what to wear in the morning. With wit, charm and a refreshingly down-to-earth attitude, this gorgeously-designed full-colour book is a must-have for anyone who loves fashion, music and just about everything Alexa Chung.'

Is Your iPhone Looking Fabulous?

  We would once be considered on trend and stylish just by the mere fact of owning the latest lifestyle gadget, be it the latest MP3 player, tablet, mobile phone, e-reader  and so on and so forth. These little technological devices were once a worthy testament to our fashion savoir faire - particularly any device designed by Apple and predominantly the iPhone - because everyone needs a phone and any fashionista knows it needs to be an iPhone. Such a staple have these little pieces of technology become and so dear to us they are, that we are no longer merely protecting our iPhones in functional cases, we're embellishing and adorning them like we embellish and adorn ourselves. I think of my Biba iPhone case as an investment, with massive cost per wear value, like a statement coat, a belt or pair of sunglasses. And like anything that has massive cost per wear, the iPhone embellishment offers big fashion kudos. Admittedly, embellishing...

Stella McCartney Spring Summer 2014 Presentation

How ironic, the fashion houses are unveiling their Spring Summer 2014 collections to the world, whilst here in London we're still waiting for Summer 2013 and consequently our Spring Summer 2013 wardrobes! Clearly I'm not bitter. Stella McCartney invited the gliteratti to view her SS 2014 collection at West 10th Street New York City in the setting of a garden party. On the guest list was Cameron Diaz glowing in white, massive fashion salute to her for wearing white in the rain, Madonna who seemed to have taken inspiration from Karl Lagerfeld, Kate Bosworth, Julian Moore, Liv Tyler and many more. Be charmed, stay inspired! x...

Cara Delevigne Hits the Stage with Rita Ora!

Last night Cara Delevigne took to the stage with gal pal Rita Ora, singing her very own rendition of Ora's 'Party and Bull Shit'. Ora was performing for the DKNY Artworks event in South London that Cara was hosting. Both were rocking the sport luxe trend, Ora wearing a DKNY crop top, gold skinny jeans and black snap back, and Cara prancing around in a DKNY zip front jumpsuit and wedged trainers. Cara seemed to quite fancy herself the singer, after not only prying the microphone from Ora, but refusing to give it back! But just look how much fun these girls are having... Be charmed, stay inspired!x...

The Kris Jenner Show

It seems that it wasn't enough for Kris Jenner to be the subject of chat show billionaire Oprah's Next Chapter, now she's after her job. Kris Jenner is going to be hosting her very own chat show! I am not sure what the general consensus is on Kris, but I am guessing she might not be considered the best of wives -mainly due to the way she treats Bruce and of course her affair(s?). She might not be considered the best of mothers either, mainly due to the fact that has so openly claimed that Kim Kardashian is her favourite daughter and has kind of possibly exploited her children and she might be considered vain and occasionally dress too young for her age, but one thing that cannot be denied is, she does have personality!  I am going to sit on the fence on this one and try not to make any hasty judgements, but I think we might all be...

Sex and the City – Fifteen Years!

For those like myself, that were barely even teenagers when Sex and the City graced our TV's late on a school night on channel four, Sex and the City was a little more special than it was to those of an older generation. Arguably, maybe we should not have been watching Sex and the City at all - after all, it was aired after the watershed - but we all watched Friends and that was pretty harmless, so what made Sex and the City any more special? Well - it just was, wasn't it? For those of us that were in the early years of our secondary school education, we were still trying discover ourselves and work our way around our friendships - many of them new. We were starting to experiment with make up, trying to decide how we wanted to dress, which fashions we wanted to follow and most importantly, we were just starting to realise the opposite sex and...
