Jenna Lyons is a genius. The creative director of J.Crew’s SS’15 collection is, once again, filled with oodles of covetable clothes and accessories that had me compiling a wish list as I circulated the presentation. We previewed a series of ultra cool, effortless, professional yet playful looks, which I cannot believe we have to wait until March next year to get our hands on. Boyfriend jeans, drop-waist dresses, leather city shorts and pastel parkas were layered baggily over each other, with pastel tinted sunglasses and metallic clutches. I LIKE. A LOT.
Always fun, always quirky and always so awfully British, Mulberry parties are always THE parties you want to get invited to during Fashion Month.
I was thrilled therefore, to be invited see Cara Delevingne unveil her second collection for Mulberry during NYFW, at their gorgeous Spring Street flagship store.
Fashion’s belle du jour, dressed top-to-toe in Mulberry, mingled (and pulled several of her signature funny faces) amongst hundreds of gold balloons with her sister Poppy Delevingne (above, also in Mulberry), DJ Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor (below) and Georgia May Jagger.
Vodka cocktails were served by exceptionally dreamy waiters in superbly tight ‘CARA’ t’shirts, making refusing their wares increasingly impossible (another one?! Oh go on then…!!) and the miniature English canapés, including cute ‘ickle mini Sunday Roasts and ‘eeny weeny mini Fish’n’Chips, were delicious.
The latest collection of handbags, which can be worn as backpacks, also includes a limited edition creation that has gold lion studs, inspired by the famous lion tattoo that Cara has tattooed on her finger.
Similarily, each bag has a lion rivet and a heart shaped patch based on another of Cara’s tattoos, which she explained “I want there to be hidden gems inside, based on the things that are personal to me, which my tattoos definitely are.”

TLC LOVES... THE MULBERRY DELEVINGNE COLLECTION:
I utterly adored Michael Kors’ SS’15 collection (and having had a quick peek at Pinterest I’m certainly not alone!)
The blooming, beautiful florals and 1950’s inspired embellished skirts, were paired with masculine, tailored shirts, crisp white boyfriend tee's or light weight cashmere sweaters, resulting in an effortless, ladylike chic.
I mean, this could be the most perfect summer wardrobes of all time... Michael, I’ll take the lot. Please?!
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.
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.

I was very excited to be invited to the annual Reward Style Party, one of the most talked about parties each year during New York Fashion Week. Sponsored by InStyle and Topshop, I joined hundreds of the world’s most popular bloggers on the rooftop of The Empire Hotel (where is Chuck Bass when you need him?!) for many a cocktail in the sunshine.
Below: I chatted with fellow crazy cat lady, DJ Harley Viera-Newton, during her set. If you haven’t already, you must check out the videos of her cat showering (yes, really!) on Instagram.
Obvvvviously the best part of attending a party like this, and being surrounded by so many fashionistas, is the immense style stalking opportunities (but first, let me take a selfie...)
Above: Roughly translated. "P*** Off!' Love the versatility of this H&M polka-dot skirt.
