This once again proves…wherever you go, the British have been there before you! At least that’s what I thought when I came across this uber-cool red telephone box. Obviously I’ve seen one before…in London, in Turkey, in a little town at the coast of the North Sea. It almost seems as though it’s the ‘moon’ flag of the British which they put everywhere they’ve been. Pssst, I want one for my room please!
I have to admit I’ve most shamefully neglected this blog for the last few months, not because I don’t like blogging anymore, far from that, but because I’ve been so busy doing other things and I haven’t been in London since a while so there’s not much to blog about. As for outfit posts, there will be some new ones this year, as soon as I’ve found a good background other than my living room (as seen in many previous posts…). For now, you’ll have to live with these kind of blog posts – however, I’m sure you’ll survive. 😉 Oh, and before I forget it: Happy New Year 2014! (May it be better than 2013; at least for me.)
Here’s what I’d like to wear on New Year’s Eve:
Michael Kors Chain Lace Dress and Studded Shoulder Cardigan (get yours at Selfridges)
Marc Jacobs Polka-dot Plaque Bracelet (also Selfridges)
Mulberry Lily Glossy Medium Goat Bag in Red
Melissa Ginga Platform Mary Jane Shoes
Oh, and here’s what I actually ended up wearing (at least the colours are the same):
PS: Have you noticed how all the brand’s names start with an ‘M’?
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
There are only a few shows at London Fashion Week that get me very, very excited every season. Not because they’re popular or because they have the best front row celebrities. No. I get excited because I really love to see what the designers come up with that season. Because the clothes and accessories are amazingly beautiful and I would like to buy the whole collection each season. There are only three shows that get me this excited. The Burberry show (though I haven’t seen a collection as beautiful as the AW12 one again which really gave me goose bumps), the Mulberry show (because of obvious eye candy bag reasons) and the Orla Kiely presentation.
I hadn’t been to an Orla Kiely presentation before, but I’ve been to the shop on King’s Road and immediately fell in love with the clothes. So when Orla did a collaboration with Uniqlo, I got a really beautiful dress which is now my favourite dress. It looks chic, reminds me of something vintage and is very comfortable – what’s not to love, really? And now I’ve seen the SS14 collection, I guess I’ll have to go and make a little purchase in the shop next year. I can’t not buy one of those stunning dresses!
The Orla Kiely presentation is something special every year. It’s a kind of Fluxus art, performance art. This year, Orla Kiely took us on a safari with her models. The girls were exploring the wilderness, catching butterflies, reading books and relaxing close to the camp fire while the catchy tune “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” was playing. All of the girls were wearing berets and the bags they were carrying, shaped like animals, were super cute. The clothes also didn’t disappoint. Pretty shoes worn with knee socks and 60s dresses adorned with collars. Until next season, hopefully!
There are a lot of people on the streets of London during Fashion Week every season. People with different styles and clothes. There are…

…and many other fashion types. I would probably wear something inbetween all of those types. A bit of everything you could say. Something chic, something trendy, something cute and weird, something plain maybe. A simple black and white look, a bow in my hair and a Mulberry bag on my arm. Here’s an outfit which you can shop at Selfridges. Something which I would wear to LFW.
The title says it all. I would say I’ve got nothing else to add, but then again I’ve always got something to add, so here we go…
My last few posts were a bit royal-focused (Marie Antoinette and so on), so I thought I should keep that topic up for a bit longer et voila, this post is what happened. I took these pictures on a 40°C day, which had one big advantage: as it was so hot, no one else was outside, so no one could see me running through the garden in this dress. Which I’m quite glad about. It prevented my neighbours from thinking I’ve totally lost it now. But I can assure you, I’ve felt completely and utterly comfortable. I was definitely born in the wrong century and nothing will keep me from pointing that out on every suitable occasion.
