A few of my favourite hats from Paris Fashion Week

Dapper Gent

If only all men could pull off Andy’s slick style. His ‘gentleman in the city’ look is put together with classic, elegant pieces worn to perfection. While his twirly moustache, ankle-cropped trousers and tattoos give his look a quirky edge. Andy wears shirt by Our Legacy, tie by RRL, trousers by Uniforms For The Dedicated, belt by Anderson’s, bag by Ally Cappellino, shoes by Marc Jacobs and Casio watch. Andy works for Liberty and all items can be purchased from there.

In The Pink

Mynxii in New York


The world has been tickled pink with this playful hair colour popping up everywhere.  Here are some of my favourite examples of colourful fun.

Ploy & Ploy

Continuing on from my previous post, here are another pair of friends with matching names and kick-ass style! I met Ploy and Ploy outside the Dolce & Gabanna show in Milan and they literally stopped me in my tracks. Ploy (above) works bold, block colours with her bright red jacket (get a similar one here), matching lipstick and sheer black shirt and trousers. The mirrored sunglasses and leather gloves give her look extra edge. While Ploy (below) blossoms in floral-print trousers and scarf. She balances the look with a subtle black top, tailored jacket and amazing mesh-detail heels.

Tanya & Tanya

Tanya and Tanya certainly know how to rock a head scarf, furry gilet and converse. These two buddies ooze swagger and style, mixing vintage pieces with textures and COLOUR!

Tanya Lacey (above) is a singer/songwriter and recently co-wrote “T.H.E” (The Hardest Ever) with, JLo and Jagger. Watch out for her debut album coming out later this year, released by Sony/RCA. She wears a jacket by Pinkyotto from Williamsburg (my favourite place in NY!) furry gilet from Notting Hill, t-shirt from Forever 21, vintage headscarf, leggings from ASOS and Converse trainers.

Tanya (below) is a student and works pink panther chic in her jacket from Topshop, jeans from Topshop, furry gilet from Heba, pink top from Spitalfields and Converse trainers. ♥ it!

Preetma’s Playful New York Style

For this post I’m whizzing back to New York to show you Preetma’s kooky mix and match look. Preetma looks too darn cool in this eclectic combination. She wears t-shirt by Meadham Kirchoff (get it here), coat by McQ, shirt by Wrangler, leggings by Phi and boots by Rag & Bone. To see more of Preetma’s style, take a look at her blog The Working Girl (esq).

Luca’s eyebrows

I love Luca’s original take on colour blocking.

Anna & Little Lara

I spotted the beautiful Anna with her gorgeous bub Lara walking through Spitalfields. What a stylish pair! Anna wears a dress from Beyond Retro and Primark leggings. Lara wears denim shirt from Gap, polka dot jeans from Japan and shoes from France.

Jutte on Hanbury Street

I love Jutte’s adorable 60’s look. Her white tights, cute bob, and shiny patent shoes create doll-like girliness, while the leopard print fur coat adds an element of edge to her ensemble. Jutte wears coat by Topshop, vintage dress, bag bought from Ebay, Office shoes, tights from Topshop, vintage brooch and ring by Alex Monroe.


Conor wears clothes bought from Camden and steel capped boots from Ebay


‘London calling to the underworld
Come out of the cupboard, you boys and girls’

Conor and Darcy work the rebellious Brit look with their punk style and steel capped boots. But don’t be fooled by their hard-as-nails looks, they’re two very lovely chaps who clearly enjoyed posing for the camera!

Darcy wears jacket from Ebay, jeans from JC Penny's in Ohio, shirt by Ben Sherman, braces by Warrior and boots from the British Boot Company.

Izzy does it for the girls, working the punk look with panache. She’s wearing one of the trends I posted about last week- monochrome striped trousers. Take a look at the post here.

Izzy wears jeans by Motel (get them here), Dr. Martins, her brother's jacket, shirt from Urban Outfitters, sunglasses from Brick Lane and bag from a charity shop.
