Credit Buy: COxAP Purrrfect Briefs Set of 3

Over two years ago I found two abandoned kittens on my doorstep, and Harry and Lloyd soon (and yes, predictably) became my permanent buddies.  Soooo, imagine how thrilled I was with this Charlotte Olympia for Agent Provocateur underwear set… Beyond purrrfect, new feline faves for this loud and proud, cray cray cat lady! 

Purrrfect Briefs Set of 3 (RRP. £95.00)

Credit Buy: Charlotte Olympia for Agent Provocateur's Cat Nap Leopard Print Set

Charlotte Olympia’s recent, sultry collaboration with Agent Provocateur is nothing short of a match made in heaven.  The ultra feminine and playful collection includes several sexy lingerie sets and three pairs of sky-high, platform shoes, but it’s this wildly chic, Cat Nap Leopard Print Set that I want to get my little claws into…!  

The slippers... The eye mask... The coordinating silk satin pouch... This is what real dreams are made of (or should be!)  RRP. £395.00

HEADS UP:  This purrrrrfect set of three APxCO knickers will be joining the current collection and hitting stores from April. As a loud and proud crazy cat lady, I will almost certainly need these in my life! 

Hello There: Boyarde

I was recently introduced to Boyarde who is well known for her vibrant pop-art infused aesthetic which she gloriously paints on any canvas, as long as it’s not paper!  With her popular monogramming technique, or ability to create bespoke characters and sayings to your preference, London fashionistas went into a frenzy towards the end of last year, vying to have their tote bags personalised by the artist. 

During London Fashion Week and Frieze London, Boyarde held a special exhibition at the Hyatt Regency, where several of her hand painted handbags, belonging to various tastemakers and fashion bloggers, were displayed in all their bright, shining glory.  I was lucky enough to be asked to participate, by having my newly customised, dove grey Smythson Panama North South Tote displayed alongside bags belonging to Charlotte Olympia and Laura Bailey (below).

I had decided on having one of Boyarde’s ‘signature divas’ on my bag, the African Queen herself, Katherine Hepburn (a Smythson fan herself!) who we decided to colour in similar tones to Smythson’s Panama range; emerald green and red. Playing on my African roots, and OBVIOUS love of The Lion King, my sassy lil’diva hollers out, ‘Hakuna Matata, Sweet Cheeks!'

Not many people get to swing their phone and keys around in such a beautiful piece of art! 

Thank you Boyarde and Smythson xx

NYFW SS'15: Zoë Jordan

British designer Zoë Jordan presented an edit of nine RTW looks this New York Fashion Week, and I was so glad to be in town so as not to miss it.  I have always been a big fan of Zoë’s urban, tomboy-chic designs and this collection certainly did not disappoint.

Inspired by cracked granite and atomised metal, this clean collection, with its relaxing blue marble hues and silver strobes, neat dresses and must-have stylish city shorts, was shown at the über cool Milk Studios alongside a fantastic sound mix by DJ Miss G.     

Above Left:  My favourite look from the collection.  I just LOVE these silver leather shorts paired with Zoë's signature Dias Jumper in cream and silver. Already firmly on my wish list.

Halloween 2013

Celebrating Halloween in the UK has become increasingly popular in the last few years (thank you Heidi Klum!) and now there is no shortage of thrills and chills to enjoy come October 31st.  With this ghoulish night fast approaching us (like a serial killer in a dark alley) costumes are now firmly on my mind.  Usually the ladies of London use this annual opportunity to leave as little to the imagination as possible... something spooky + clevage = (Sexy) Vampire/(Sexy) Cat/(Sexy) Skeleton/(Sexy) Devil, etc.  I however, would love to see more effort on the whole and witness some really spooky, stomach-churningly dramatic outfits on the big night;  a tormented zombie, a rabid hybrid werewolf, a two-headed cannibal, a VMA’s Miley Cyrus… Now THAT would be terrifying!

Charlotte Olympia's Incy Collection

Charlotte Olympia, my FAVOURITE shoe designer of all time, has shrunk her favourite six pretty and playful flats, (including the Kitty Flats, leftloved by Alexa Chung) to fit the luckiest of little girls... I've never wanted smaller feet more.  The collection, called Incy, takes inspiration from the 'Incy Wincy Spider' nursery rhyme.

"I always thought I'd design little shoes for little people as soon as I had a girl" said designer Charlotte Dellal,"however, with two boys now and a third child on the way - I decided to finally launch 'Incy' regardless. Maybe I'll have a girl this time!"
