LFW AW16 – DAY 1

London Fashion Week LFW AW16 Style Form 42

It’s London Fashion Week, and I am back in London to check out some shows and recover some of my favourite haunts. And this view from Blackfriars s one of them. If you are willing to venture a few bridges over from Westminster, the views from Blackfriars bridge are equally excellent. Not only that but you can turn around and admire the wonderful stone architecture and wooden doors adjacent to Blackfriars station. Also home to the wacky and weird there’s…

Andalusian Summer

Nerja Spain Andalusia Style Fashion Form 42

On my last evening in Nerja I walked down to the beach to watch the sunset. And when in Spain… Long story short, I decided to dip a toe into the local culture as well as enjoy some manual air con with this red fan I picked up along the way. Having also dipped a toe into the sea and propped up some white-washed walls on the way there, I was finally ready to leave Nerja behind and move onto…

Autumn London Style Fashion Form 42

While I edit the thousands of pictures I shot in Paris with Red Velvet London, here are some I shot over the last week or so in London. Now, guys. It’s late, I’m tired and the last thing I want to do is go on about the British weather like I do in every post… But I am genuinely worried my citizenship might get revoked if I don’t. So, so, so so… You know the drill. The days are getting…

LFW SS16 – DAY 3

LFW SS16 London Style Fashion Form 42

Carrying on from all the fishy business in my previous post, here is the latest LFW post which wraps my SS16 season in London, before I skip off to Paris for Paris Fashion Week. What did you want to be when you were a kid? I always ask my friends in hopes their childhood career goals were weirder than mine. This never ever happens. Most kids wanted to be somewhere between a fire-fighter, a pilot or an astronaut. There were…

LFW SS16 – DAY 2

LFW SS16 London Style Fashion Form 42

Day two of London Fashion Week was chaotic to say the least. The day started at 5am, with hair, makeup, outfit planning and a few shoots I booked in before the shows kicked off in the morning. These was a lot of running, stopping, thinking, and running the other way. This year the LFW shows and presentation were spread far and wide all over London, giving everyone ample opportunity to get lost, stuck in traffic, arrive late and practice excuses that had been…

LFW SS16 – DAY 1

LFW SS16 London Style Fashion Form 42

Viva la comfort of the slouchy pant and oversized jumper. In between all of my commitments I managed to carve out some weekend time and swapped my uncomfortably tight pencil dresses for these roomy Ginger & Smart wide leg pants Now, my work-wear didn’t always resemble a Victorian corset, but over the last few week of intense career commitment, personal fitness slipped so far down my priority list, it might as well be digging a shortcut to China. The extent of my exercise over the last…

UCL, London

London UCL Fashion Style Form 42

This is a quickie post, created to honour that very rare event that is lunch in the park, or in my case square. Full on hour-long lunchtimes are rare. Hour-long lunch-times which are warm and sunny are even rarer. But, I somehow managed to crawl out of the shackles of academia for an hour and snap up some vitamin D and some much-needed sanity during my finals. My favourite strong blues and reds are making a comeback in this post…

London Fashion Style Form 42

I am taking a bit of break from Iceland and heading over to not just my home town, but also my home turf. Let me introduce to the Marmite: UCL. This place has been the most fun but also the most tough few years of my life as I crawled towards that finish line with the square hat. So while I am back home, slogging though thousands of photos which need editing, I have to make time-saving shortcuts to get everything…

RAINFALL

Iceland Rain Style Fashion Form 42

The last few days I have been struggling to crawl over to my laptop to blog the next set of  Icelandic shots. In fact, I have been struggling to even hit the ‘on’ button. The only button I have been hitting is snooze. A lot. Over the past few weeks I have been hopping from country to country and rarely staying in one place for more than one or two nights. My fellow blogette and space cadet, has been keeping me…

Regent's Park Japanese Garden London Style Fashion Form 42

Ever been in that awkward relationship that’s been over a good long while, but you don’t quite know how to summon up the courage to end it? Yeah… you know what I’m talking about. That gorgeous date-night skirt you can’t sit in, eat in… or even breathe in without ripping stitches or cracking some ribs. What about those shoes you wear exclusively between your taxi and your table? Everyone familiar? I think so. Right kids, it’s time to say bye bye.…

Top Tips For Putting Together a Capsule Wardrobe

travel fashion thames walk london bridge style

My style now works for me, I don’t work for it. Living in a big city, with demands, commitments, constant emails, IMs, FB messages, whatsapps and the daily hot and sticky sardine-can experience of rush hour on the tube is bad enough. I don’t need to add the stress of what to wear to the mix. I like to be able to grab things from my wardrobe and just go. So I built my wardrobe around key shapes and colours.…

Central Saint Martins London Style Fashion Form 42

As I am wrapping up my term at Central Saint Martins, I am clocking in more and more hours at the studio, meaning that the blog has been taking a bit of a back seat leading up to the assessments. I am still posting regularly, not slacking on the quality of content, but something’s gotta give. So instead of doing my usual location scouting, spontaneous walks around London, planning and putting together each detail of the outfit, I just walked…

With Love, From Pandora

Pandora Jewellery Love Bracelet Spring 2015

Happy International Women’s Day. How are you celebrating the day? For me, as luck may have it, one of my favourite yearly holidays also coincided with the weekend, meaning that I was swimming in a sea of orchids at Kew (more on that later on the blog, so stay tuned) and diving into buckets of fresh flowers at Columbia Road. Apart from treating myself to bouquets of pure fresh and fragrant awesomeness, I picked up some flowers for some of the…

Two Pancras Square London Fashion Week Style Form 42

I have been dying to catch some snow all of this winter, but I all caught so far was getting snowed in under mountains of work. So after being cooped up for weeks, I made a bid for freedom to partake in some London Fashion Week related activities. I took  few minutes out of my studio schedule to catch up on all things life, style and croissant around King’s Cross with fellow style blogger Mariko from Silk and Suits. This is a quick…

Somerset House LFW London Fashion Week Style Form 42

London Fashion Fashion week is kicking off and I am back at Somerset House first thing in the morning shooting for a fellow blogger – Mariko form Silk and Suits. I am more than glad to be up and out of the door to capture some street scenes and street style shots even if it involves getting up before dawn. It gives me the push I need not only to get out of the house, explore and really get to know…
