AUTUMN EDIT: ZARA

Fashion

As to be expected, Zara are doing the most with their latest AW17-18 drop. The collection falls nothing short of flattering cuts and snug dressing with a warm colour palette.

The brand have kept florals and bold patterns for the most of the collection and intertwined them with lace inserts and velvet – power dressing sharpened up.

HELLO, AUTUMN

Fashion

Crunchy leaves and a crisp wind indicate that winter’s warmer friend is back, and so will be thick knit jumpers and even thicker coats. Hello, autumn… And what’s more important than a wardrobe change parallel to season?

I’m thinking dark oranges on mom jeans and colourful furs on black jeans.

I’m also thinking confidently smart clothing and smartly comfortable clothing. Layering up is as much about comfort as it is look.

Brands are evolving with demands – Joni jeans with belt loops, softer knits on roll necks, longer aviators and even longer boots, to name a few – and thus, this year’s fits are to be as calm as the modest designs that autumn encourages.

Refresh your style this autumn: stay tuned for my Autumn edits!

MOSCHINO X MY LITTLE PONY

Fashion

Moschino has made My Little Pony high-end fashion in pastel colours and millennial cuts. It is a pony themed dream come true… thank you, Jeremy Scott. The labels SS18 capsule collection brings home nostalgia and dream-like tropes as it clocks into the fairy-tale corner of our imaginations. If you are one for pastels, ponies and all things pretty, look no further for a new wardrobe favourite than this collection.

Game of Rhodes

Travel

Greenery, Game-Of-Thrones vibes and rising ground for miles; the city of Rhodes held plenty of magic inside its walls. I arrived there this August (after a journey of embarrassingly crippling seasickness) and concluded that when one develops an appetite for escapism, medieval essence and turquoise crystallic water, Rhodes is rich for you.

ASOS X MTV: FUNK YOURSELF UP

Fashion

Welcome back, neon animal prints layered with funky logos and contrasting patterns! It’s all in the ASOS X MTV collection and it is all so wonderfully weird.
Rocking pink and green leopard print on a fanny pack that matches your socks and oversized top is something from my wonderfully weird and wildest dreams. Every piece of this 80’s inspired summer collection is bold.

Jimmy Kors

Fashion

From Hackney to Hollywood: Our London-listed love, Jimmy Choo, has been purchased in a deal worth almost £900m, Josie Marie (belatedly so) reports. It is safe to say that the brand is no longer Great Britain’s, let alone London’s.

The Lemonade Diet

Beauty, Personal

Terrible skin, dull hair, bloated stomach, awful appetite and a whole lot of shame: I was going through one of those phases. What did I decide would make it all better? Behold…. The Lemonade Diet! (Nah, not the fizzy kind… As much as I’d have loved that).
Even though I’ve never been one for dieting or detoxing, experimentation called and prompted me to believe a detox would fix my ugly phase.
