LFW | SHRIMP AW15

London Fashion Week is once again, in full swing. I have never been myself, but with live feeds and twitter updates, everything you need to know LFW-wise is simply a click away... 

There was a presentation that I knew I had to share with you. It was a glitter fantasy, inspired by the Emerald City, it truly was a celebration for British designer Hannah Welland and her fashion label Shrimp. This label shares the best in faux fur fashion, through carefully sourced fabric and vivid colours. The creativity behind this brand is clear to see, refreshing and forward thinking. Shrimp, does indeed, put the fun into fashion.

The AW15 presentation (above) appeared to be a dreamy, cosmic mix of colours, shaggy coats, contrasting collars and hems. My personal favourites are the embroidered jumpers and Sophia Webster heels.


This collection has a 70s vibe that will have you reaching for that disco ball...

As celebrities, bloggers and fashion lovers assemble to watch the shows, there is much focus on what is being worn off the runway. So, of course, Alexa Chung was photographed wearing a Papa Puss coat outside Somerset house, as was Pixie Geldof. So, Shrimp, gets a fashion nod from Alexa Chung and friends, need I say more?..

late valentines




Wreath | Flowers

So, this was supposed to be a romantic Valentine's post, but, like many love affairs it was not to be. To be honest I've been struggling to blog recently and the passion to do so seems to be lost.

Have I fallen out of love with blogging?

I don't think this is the case. Recently, that spark that made me excited to blog is missing. But, when I go back to the beginning, when it was all new and exciting, I remember why I started. I want to rekindle this romance and blog when my heart is in it and only then. 

So with this, I thought I would share a few things that have my heart in a flutter;


- Broadchurch. I need to know the TRUTH!

- I am over the moon to have tickets for The Elephant Man at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. It is starring Bradley Cooper. BRADLEY COOPER! I'm so excited to see this man on stage this summer!

- Shrove Tuesday is upon us. This means pancakes for tea! A sprinkle of sugar and a squeeze of lemon is how I like mine. How do you have yours?

Thanks for reading, I hope you have a good week!

Sweet Suede


1 2 3

Spring is set to be heavily influenced by the seventies. That's right, the 70's have returned with a vengeance! I can't wait to invest in some vibrant pieces and embrace this fashion trend, as seen on the Chloé, Derek Lam and Chanel spring 2015 fashion shows.

As you can see, I'm excited by a suede revolution (not quite). I adore the buttoned down skirt worn so effortlessly with a black high neck top, above, as I do the suede jacket worn simply with flared denim trousers. I would love to add some retro inspired suede to my wardrobe. The pieces that spring to mind are;

+ A line suede skirt
+ Suede biker jacket - similar to the pink Topshop jacket (fingers crossed for a Primark version!)
+ Patchwork skirt - this beauty from Olive clothing, for example.
+ Suede bag - with FRINGE detail 

Just think, Penny Lane in Almost Famous and this is the style I will be channelling for future posts. 
I don't need any per-suede-ing when it comes to this trend... (Oh dear!)
