LIFE LATELY - OYSTERS, PROSECCO... & ALPACAS

IMG_4881

Three months since my last post? Whoops! Lots has been going on, an imminent (fingers crossed!) house move (can't wait to redecorate & get my all own furniture!), a trip to New York City, & just a general appreciation of this year's Summer. So far, the weather has (almost) held it's own pretty awesomely. Luckily, the sun shined for Lambeth Country Fair last week, where I saw a few goats (above), a couple of meerkats, oh & of course the odd alpaca. Yesterday was another fair, this time in Clapham & strictly for foodies only. Oysters were shucked, prosecco poured, herb gardens visited, & I ended up seriously impressed (unexpectedly) with what the Co-op is currently offering. At their stall they were offering slices of pizza with prosecco for just £4, & I feel the days of a dreary Co-op in comparison to more mighty giants like Waitrose are on their way out: a big marketing push, & a cute alternative for weekly foodshops - heck, they're the main store on Lordship Lane!

I'll be blogging more consistently with fashion week practically around the corner, but you can keep up with me on instagram for daily doses of kitten cuteness, or pinterest, where I'm developing a Scandi-Brooklyn-Bloomsbury interior style...

EUDON CHOI AW15

IMG_36w40

Eudon Choi 2015 was full of brocade, decadent silks, bohemian tassled shawls & structured sleeveless coats. A touch of the military & sporty aesthetic filtered through the collection, from a sharply pleated blouse paired with a khaki skirt, to an athletic wide neon stripe detailing a pair of billowing black silk pants. Hair was tied back in messy topknots or plaited for the folkier looks, whilst eyes were finished with a swipe of liner just above the lid. My favourite piece was the deep golden sleeveless coat lined in the most beautiful royal blue: effortless chic at its finest.

ORLA KIELY AW15

Orla Kiely AW15

All Quiet in the Library. In a set designed by James Hatt, an Orla library was created that evoked a 1970s college building, complete with block font signs and emerald green desk lamps. Inspiration came from Ali McGraw in Love Story & a more modern Chloe Sevigny (albeit one in a beige turtleneck & oversized reading glasses); the models  softly treaded the floorboards, picking out books & whispering study notes between them. The O and the K from the brand was incorporated into several geometric prints, including felt overlay on black skirts. The green from the lamps was echoed in several different variations, from a bright ruffle-necked & belted dress to the trim on a grey woollen sweater, & a sparkly cocktail dress worn with a delicate scallop-trimmed blouse beneath. Graphic patterns intercut mohair sweaters & tan leather totes. The shoes continue to be designed in collaboration with Clarks.

Finally getting around to posting some of these photos from the gorgeous Paul Costelloe SS15 presentation last season. Beehives, brocade, & heavy white-soled plimsols were the order of the day, with backcombed hair, bows, & cinched-in waists modernised by oversized capes, chain linked bags, & platforms. And isn't that cornflower blue just gorgeous??
